Standing Spongebob Cake

This is the cake that has been keeping me busy for the last few days, talk about a challenge! Infact i think this has got to be one of the most challenging cakes i have done so far. This Spongebob cake was vanilla sponge cake, filled with jam and buttercream and covered in fondant icing. Spongebob measures 10″ wide x 5″ deep and stood at a huge height of 16.5″ from the top of his head, down to his feet. I did have fun making this cake but the stress was immense too. As most of you will already know, tall and thin cakes can be a nightmare stability wise and so unpredictable too. I didn’t even dare breathe too heavy near this cake because i was scared to death that he was going to fall ( which he didn’t of course). I won’t even get started on the car journey and trying to transport the cake but let me just tell you, my heart got very well acquainted with my mouth since that was where it was sitting for the whole journey! Anyway long story short, Spongebob made the journey in one piece and i am totally thrilled at how he turned out. It was a huge amount of work but the end results were all totally worth it and i couldn’t be happier.

How time is flying by.

23 Oct

I can’t believe it has been a whole 2 months since i last updated this blog!! Sorry guys, i don’t know where the last 2 month has gone, boy it has really flown by. Saying that i think this whole year is flying by or seems to be. I haven’t really been up to much the last 2 months, I’ve made a few cakes and also quite a few batches of cupcakes too! I have been testing out new recipes and also creating some scrummy cupcake concoctions that i will be using when i set up in business (which will hopefully be sometime early next year if everything goes to plan) so watch this space!!!! Anyway here are some of my latest creations that i would like to share with you all.

Cars 2 cake with icing figures.

Spongebob cake also with icing figures.

Xbox cake, complete with icing edible game (which of course had to be Halo, one of my favourite games). The games controller was shaped out of rice krispie treats, coated in buttercream and then covered in fondant/sugarpaste icing.

Here are a couple of the many cupcakes i have made recently

Purple roses for a 60th Birthday.

Rosettes and trophies for a horse riding presentation.

21st Birthday Fosters cake

9 Jul

This cake is one of my favourites and was another fun cake to make, testing but fun. Everything on this cake is edible and is either made out of cake or icing, apart from the ice on top of the cake. For the ice i used fox’s glacier mints. All the items on the cake are related to the things that the birthday boy likes.
