Clock Cake 2

Hickory Dickory Clock

I made this clock cake for my daughter's first birthday.

I made it using a basic chocolate sponge in a large rectangular tin. I shaped it by simply cutting with a knife in order to create the rounded top and indented sides. I made chocolate butter icing (with a small bowl non-chocolatey) and spread on all but the middle where I put the plain icing. I decorated it using Smarties around the edge of the clock face, licorice for the numbers, hands and pendant string, chocolate drops around the edge and a sugar mice to run down at 1 o' clock.

It's a really simple cake to make and decorate and definitely went down well!!

Coolest Clock Cake 3

This clock cake is a simple cake for those who haven't much time or are beginners who can take this idea. This is an almond tarte,(but any cake will do, but always turn it upside down to make the top part flat). I covered it with blue sugar paste, then colured pieces of sugar paste to make the numbers and pointed to 2 o'clock as it was the 2nd birthday.

I rolled another piece of sugar paste to write the name, always making different colours to make contrast. With the remaining pieces I made some shapes like triangles, squares and circles and just stick them all around the cake with a tip of water.

Coolest Wrist Watch Cake 4

Homemade Wrist Watch Cake

I made this Wrist Watch Cake for my stepson Brian who is obsessed with watches. I am an amateur baker and this is only my 5th cake of this caliber that I have made. It was a lot of fun, although time consuming. The details is what I think makes the cake so neat. Brian said it was my best cake.

It took me two days and about 20 hours with my sister's help.

I hope you all enjoy it!

Hi Ladies,

Thank you so much for your kind comments about the cake I made for Brian.

The way I made the links was with fondant. I baked two small rectangular cakes for each side. Attached it to the round face cake and rolled out fondant to cover each. Then I rolled out a long piece and then cut them so they would all be the same. I attached it to the cake with frosting and finally painted it silver. I used silver dust and a little lemon juice.

The rest of the cake was also fondant and food coloring for the writing.


Good luck!

Carla
