Theme Cakes

The little mermaid cake was a hit at this 7th birthday party!!  All the girls wanted to eat Ariel’s flower and the boys wanted to eat the eyes… yes, that’s kids nature :). This time, I stayed away from the typical chocolate cake and ventured with a “peaches and cream” cake. A regular sour cream cake with pieces of peaches and filled with pastry filling (similar to whipped cream) with peach pieces as well in order to stay in the same flavor subject. The cake was then covered in butter cream using the star tip method.  It was a hit with both children and adults alike!

I created this fun and colorful Tinkerbell cake for a baby shower in late November. The mom-to-be was a chocoholic, so I themed the flavor of this cake as “Death by Chocolate”.

I just made this cake this weekend.  It really was so much fun and very entertaining to design the dress and dressing her up in it. 

The barbie cake is chocolate chocolate chunk oced with fudge.  The rose cake is strawberry cake with strawberry filling and iced with white fluffy vanilla buttercream.

The dress is all fondant. The white decorations on the white portion of the dress are white buttercream piped with a small round tip.  The rose cake is covered with fondant, the ruffle is white buttercream and the roses are fondant.  Check how to make fondant roses here.

I made this cake at the end of 2007 for a 1 year old birthday girl. I forgot my camera at home, so I only have my cell phone’s pictures.


The bottom cake was super moist chocolate chocolate chip cake filled with raspberry and iced with vanilla buttercream. Green grass is green vanilla buttercream, flowers and leaves are fondant. Lasso is chocolate fondant (I was too tired at this time I just left it that color, I suggest making it a lighter color).

The hat is cake too!!! It is sour cream vanilla chocolate marbled cake filled and iced with fudge. Covered in pink fondant. Ribbon is white fondant.

The cupcakes are white chocolate cake with white chocolate chips, iced with colored buttercream. Flowers and small hats are made of fondant.

Someone asked me to make a cake for their birthday.  I wanted to create something colorful and fun, so I came across Su-Yin’s cake and decided to replicate it.  This cake was fun to make.  I started by making Mario which I knew would be more difficult than the rest.  Once he was made, the rest came about easy.


Double click on the pictures below to enlarge the pictures and see all sides of the cake.



The cake is a marble chocolate-vanilla cake filled and covered with chocolate fudge, then covered with marshmallow fondant (MMF).  Mario’s body is filled with bread and covered with marshmallow fondant.  All decorations are MMF.
