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

Sometimes you meet the nicest people when designing cakes for their celebrations.

This time is was the most adorable, happy and positive little girl who was so enthusiastic when choosing the design details for her First Holy Communion Cake. She definitely put a smile on my face!!

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.

In the night garden is very popular – not that I understand any of it!! so it is not surprising Igglepiggle, Upsy Daisy and Makka Pakka are also popular when it comes to birthday cakes. These are a few fondant cakes I have made recently – I hope you find them useful when designing your own cakes.

This is the communion cake I was talking about when I made the pink, blossoms communion cake post. This cake was actually for a combination Confirmation and First Holy Communion celebration. It was also for a boy and the green colours were inspired by the handmade invitation. Silver was added to match the silver cross which was also used on the invitation.

It was decided stars would be a nice addition as it was for Thomas and they have been used around the base of the cake some on the top and the dove has been embossed with stars.

I love the simplicity of these two communion cake designs. I think small hearts could also be used and of course any colour combination. I think it could also look amazing in white on white with maybe gold or silver detail if you wanted some colour.

Well I have to say I had not realised just how popular Elmo was for birthday cake designs. Since I put my Elmo Cake Topper post up all I have heard about is Elmo so I have put some of the cakes I have done together in this cake gallery.

They are simple and have great bright colours which young children really respond to. Of the two face cakes of Elmo one is smooth and the other has been made shaggy. The other thing which I should mention is the coloured balls around the base of some of the cakes. They can be all the same size or change from large to small – but the reason for the mention is that this is the first thing the children go for they just love them and most of the time they are just happy to have the balls then wait for the cake to be cut!

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.
