Happy Birthday Dougie !
This is the last cake for the week...
This cake is white cake with butter cream icing,
then covered with fondant.. The windows, paths, car,
tree, mailbox, door, Fred and dino are made of 
gumpaste. I was going to have pebbles and

3 tiered Christening cake (my pride and Joy)

I was so proud of this cake... Spent many late night on
it making all the decorations.  As much as I loved it when it
was finished and didnt want to see it go.... It scared me half to death as well as it was the first time I had ever made 3 tiers and fully iced with fondant ! It was also the first time i had to have boards on all 3 levels, hidden supports and a centre dowell 
through all 3 tiers to stop it sliding.  Was a little unsure but had researched it over and over to make sure I was doing it all correct.... Now it will be fine, was scary but i did it !!! and I loved the end result ! 

Three girls from the one family were being christened. All different ages and different likes, Mum came to me with some ideas and we worked together to come up with what you see. 
Baby booties, Princess and Horses... I then tied them together with the three different sized flowers to represent their ages (large for the eldest, medium for the middle child and baby ones for the little baby) When mum came to pick it up she nearly cried ! Was the most amazing feeling !        

Easter Cookie Bouquets.

Cookie Bouquets for Easter ...
These were first drawn then hand cut because
I didnt have any easter cutters. 
I then put in some little plastic eggs with some
M&Ms inside to hide down in the grass of the nest
so the kids would get some extra fun when
they found them :)

Top Secret Flinstone pre work for Dougies Birthday Cake.

Was going to make Dougie a coke glass with a coke can pouring the drink into it but because of all the pipes and construction, and the lack of time and his birthday being at the end of easter...I will have to save that for another time.. He loves Fred Flinstone so have decided to make his house, car and yard. Have been working after he goes to bed at night and have got the roof with Dino coming out the chimmeny, Fred and his car, and a few others things made... The Girls wanted this to be a surprise so we have it under lock and key and work on it when hes not around !

Fred Flinstone

and his car

And his ever annoying but loveable pet Dino . Will post more pics of
the actual cake on Monday sometime.

Thomas the Tank Engine.

Thomas the Tank 2 tiered 1st Birthday cake.
butter cake with 100s and 1000s in the batter to make
it all colorful when cut. Ring tin used on top layer and
filled with m&ms for a surprise when cut into.

little gumpaste princess

This little lady we called Sally... hahha like to give them names !
she is about 10cm tall so only a baby.. was rather a challenge to make. To give you an idea of her size her wand is a tiny star on a small piece of dry spaghetti. She and some other princess things will go on the 2nd teir of the 3 tiered Christening cake next weekend.

Gumpaste work for upcoming cakes ..

This is a gumpaste shoe for a cake I am doing on Sat.
The cake will be a fondant covered shoebox with 
the shoe sitting on top and the bow is just for some added decoration at the bottom corner of the box.  

These little baby booties are about 10cm long
(very fiddly to make) they are for the top teir of a 3 tiered
christening cake for next weekend. Gumpaste has to be 
made ahead of time so it has time to set up! 
I had some extra gumpaste left over so made a few little extras
not sure if they will make the cake but they will make it to someones cake ... I just store them in airtight containers once they harden and they are good to go for when i need them :)    

Rat Bag Cake

Chocolate cake with butter cream .. covered in fondant.
