This 21st birthday cake idea present design has to be my most popular when I’m asked to do two tiers but this week for the first time I was asked to make it in colours other than pink and white!! I was starting to think this would never happen.

This is the original design which was actually the first cake I posted in this blog.

This time the hearts were replaced with polka dots but other than that it is the same. You could also use stars or flowers in the design.

I did include a swing tag with initial in diamante on the top tier.

I really like the tiffany blue, white, black and silver colour combination.

The top tier was white mud cake layered with white chocolate ganache and the bottom tier chocolate mud with dark chocolate ganache.

Bye for now, Michelle

Hi, I was asked to show in more detail the wedding cake I have displayed on the side of my blog. So I went searching for the original images and I put this little cake gallery together.

The colours were taken from the wedding invitation as were the little bees.

The flower is my version of a peony or a full open rose and is made from sugar paste – I have made then in all sorts of colours.

The bottom tier is a double height cake which means it is two separate cakes on their own boards set up together before the final layer of ganache and fondant icing. This makes serving the cake very easy as you cut down to the first board, serve the top tier, remove that board then you can serve the bottom tier.

Bye for now, Michelle

I thought I would share some 4th of July cupcake decorating ideas. They are all simple and use rolled fondant icing.

I think as a mixed display they look fabulous – you can not go wrong with red, white and blue.

You could also just choose one design and keep it as one colour variation or mix it up. So you could choose the stars design and instead of white blue and red some could be red. white and blue and the others blue, red and white etc.

It’s a little hard to see in the cake gallery but the red and white striped cupcake with the blue heart has the blue heart embossed with stars to keep in with the theme.

I think a display of the LOVE design would look amazing.

I also made the paper cupcake cases to match the theme.

The other day I had a phone call asking if I could make a birthday cake with an elmo theme – it was for someone who had planned to make the cake herself but things had changed at the last minute and she just did not have the time.

I had to say no as I was already fully booked and could not squeeze another order in no matter how much I wanted to help.

I then received another call filled with hope that I could at least make the elmo cake topper for her so I said yes and I am glad I did because it made me realise that really it was just a variation on my video tutorial on how to make a shaggy teddy bear.

The only changes I made were to make the arms and legs a little longer and squash his head a little so it was elongated slightly. I painted the inside of his mouth with black food colouring everything else is the same as the tutorial which is very easy but I do have to warn you making the fur does take a little time and it seems all the bears I make these days are the shaggy version but I only have myself to blame as I sit there snipping away!!

Elmo is very popular for birthdays so I hope this is useful.

This is my favourite cake for June and I have to admit it is purely because I made it for my amazing nephew Jasper’s 6th birthday.

Jasper is a master at constructing lego so I started with a simple lego block and then added the cheeky monkey from the birthday card I bought for him.

This ladybug cake collage came as a request from Sue in Canada asking if I could put some of my ladybug designs together in one image so she could use it to work from whilst making her daughters 1st birthday cake.

So Sue I hope this helps!!!

OK these are some of the cakes I have made that have red as the dominate colour. They range from Santa’s red hat to a red hot chilli. There is even a couple of wedding cakes and a mini cooper car.

Enjoy!
