It was my husband’s 32nd birthday this week and what better way to say ‘Happy Birthday’ to your loved one than making him a heart shaped birthday cake. The writing leaves a bit to be desired, but surely I can improve that when getting more¬† practice. The inside of the cake is quite fabulous though with its raspberry, vanilla and chocolate layers held together by creme patisserie.

 

I recently forced myself over my fear of decorating with sugar paste and started trying again.  The first time I ever tried it was very difficult and I was not sure if I would be able to get the hang of it. I tried and I succeeded.

The butterfly was a red velvet cake with a bright red coconut vienna cream filling and the fish cake a dense, moist chocolate cake.

 

About a year and a half a go a friend’s daughter had her 2nd birthday. I thought it would be a nice idea to make her a birthday cake. Not just any old round chocolate cake with sprinkles on it, but a novelty cake. A butterfly to be precise. This was to fit the theme of the birthday and who doesn’t like butterflies?

This cake turned out to be such a hit that soon I was getting requests from other friends if I could do cakes for them as well.

Now I never had any formal training decorating cakes, so there was a lot of trial and error involved, but every cake I made turned out better than the last. Today I have reached a point where can safely say that my cakes taste amazing and look great.

I am not going to write recipes for every came I made, but I have made the following flavors (in theory any flavor known to mankind is possible for these cakes): chocolate, chocolate marble, chocolate orange, lemon, vanilla and raspberry. I make every cake from scratch to guarantee great quality and moistness and use only natural flavoring. A cake that is not a chocolate cake can be any color under the rainbow. For instance: The caterpillar was made of 3 bright pink and 2 pastel pink parts. It looks gorgeous and both the kids and the adults loved it. All these cakes are more than enough to feed around 25 kids and any parent who fancies a piece. Smaller cakes are of course possible as well.

 

If you want more details on the cakes, please don’t hesitate to email me.
