Here’s a not-so-recent project I did for a little one’s birthday!
The cake was red velvet with cream cheese buttercream (one of my personal faves!), and all decorations were done using fondant. My favourite parts are his little cheeks….and his little nose…and his tiny tie…and his mini socks….and his teeny little shoes…okay, I admit it: I am very indecisive!!
In other news, school is finally wrapping up (FOR GOOD!!!) and I’m looking forward to upcoming baking projects, and some new recipe posts! Stay tuned, mes amis!
I have a confession to make: I actually made these cupcakes last summer. Why, you ask, am I only showing them to you now? This set of photos has been one of the most daunting folders on my desktop, for ages…I haven’t known where to start! However, with one midterm under my belt as of today, I am happy to announce that my schedule just freed up a little bit, and I was able to check this post off of my To-Do list once and for all!
I was approached last summer with a request for some gluten free cupcakes for a Dr. Seuss themed baby shower. More specifically, the theme was specific to the One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish book, with an adorable New Fish baby shower twist!
The design was left up to me, so after checking out this book thanks to youtube (I confess, I had never read it before) I created this set using fondant, a paint brush, and black gel food colour.
The best part about making these cupcakes, was the painting step! They literally came to life before my eyes, much like the pages of a well-loved Dr. Seuss book! The only downside of this order was duplicating 3 dozen of them!
The summer has officially come to an end now, and as school has been back in session for about a week, I thought it would be the perfect time to share one of my recent creations. A couple of weeks ago I made a calculator cake for a going away party at an actuarial firm. The worst part about making this cake was digging out my school bag two weeks early to find my calculator 😦
The cake was red velvet with vanilla & raspberry buttercream, and fresh raspberries in between the layers. I would tell you that it was delicious, but I wasn’t at the farewell party so I can only assume!
The white writing was done in royal icing and the black was food colouring markers.For all of you that have gone back to school like myself, don’t worry–Thanksgiving holidays will be here before we know it! 😉
