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.

I thought I would start putting together different ideas for cake designs by cake colour. The first is Pink Cakes.

They range from christening and 1st birthday to 21st and 40th birthday cakes. The blossom cross cupcakes were for a christening the others were for easter. There is also a pregnant belly cake for a baby shower in the colour combination pink and black which always works.

The pink and black 40th birthday cake had silver detailing from the invitations that her mother had made.

Pinks come in such a wide colour range from soft baby to hot hot pink, dusky pink to mushroom pink. My advice is if there is a particular pink you want matched then just give your cake designer a colour swatch so that they have a reference. Colour matching is easily done as everything is hand coloured.

I hope these fondant cakes inspire you in finding the perfect cake design for your occasion.

Today I’m adding another couple of cake collages. The first one is some of my jungle cake designs. This has to be the most popular theme for christening and first birthdays for little boys. But I have also included a picture for a little girls theme as well. All the animals are made out of fondant and if carefully removed can be kept as a memento.

The animals can be made ahead of time but I would suggest if the monkey is going to sit on the side of the cake then add his legs and tail on the cake as you will get a better fit. Having said that my timing and work load usually means I’m making the animals fresh in position on the cake!!

Just like the collage I have done for girls this is one for boys to help you create a unique design for your little boys christening or baptism day. I have also included a simple design for cupcakes.
