Homemade Mocktail Cake

Homemade Mocktail Cake

I got the idea for the mocktail cake from Foodnetwork magazine's Tikki Cocktail cake. Since I was making it for a party with kid's I just renamed it to a Mocktail.

Cake: I baked one 6 inch round cake for the center and two 1 quart bowl cakes for the top and bottom halves. I carved out the top cavity for the top most cake and frosted the cavity with vanilla frosting and the rest of the coconut with chocolate frosting and covered it up with toasted sweetened shredded coconut. The cavity is filled with vanilla frosting melted in microwave for 8 seconds to give it a liquidy look. The plumeria look alike flowers are made of fondant and I colored remaining shredded coconut green for the grass. Rest of the decorations are store bought to give it a more attractive look. I photographed the cakes from the first to the last stages to check if everything was proportionate and it was easier to discover a lot of glitches in photographs than the naked eye.

Coolest Hi 5 Birthday Cake

Homemade Hi 5 Birthday Cake

Homemade Hi 5 Birthday Cake

I made this Hi 5 birthday cake for a friend of mine. She requested a Hi 5 Cake so I found a picture of the hand and drew it slightly bigger. I doubled a Mud Cake recipe and baked it in a slab pan.

Once baked I cut out the hand shape and placed on a wire rack. Covered the cake with a purple ganache and let it drip over the sides. I rolled out and coloured small bits of Royal icing and cut out the shapes for the letters. I placed the letters on the cake before the ganache set, just so it stuck. And that was it!

Coolest Champagne Cake 49

Homemade Champagne Cake

This is a Champagne Birthday Cake I made for a friend of my husband for his anniversary. This cake is a white cake covered in multicolored Maroon, gray, and white buttercream icing. The bottle, bubbles and glasses were made from the color flow technique. The bubbles were attached to floral wire with melted candy discs' as well as to the bottle.

I had to drive 3.5 hours with this cake to get it to him. It was a surprise for his wife. It was a challenge to get it there but, it was well worth it.

I love making cakes and this drinks birthday cake was something special. This cake was for my lovely husband. He loved this cake very much.

I made this cake using a size 13x9x2 cake pan made by Wilton. I made four layers of vanilla cake and filled with Bavaria cream. Then I iced the cakes and covered them in fondant. Two days before I made the cake I prepared the boards from gum paste and bottle and cups.

Coolest Diet Coke Cake Design 67

Homemade Diet Coke Cake Design

I used a recipe for a pumpkin roll to get the shape of a coke can. I then covered the cake in homemade fondant (colored it using one part black to one part royal blue to get the silver color). I cut the letters out of fondant and sprayed them red with food mist spray. I used some black icing to write "diet."

This Diet Coke Cake Design was a hit!

Homemade Coke Can Cake

Coke Anyone?

Coke Anyone?

This is a cake that I did for the Pharmacist at one of our local Kmarts. It is a Yellow Cake with buttercreme icing. The coke can is made with rice krispies treats and the coke pouring out is made with piping gel that I colored brown and piping gel all over the can to make it look cold. The Pharmacist is a coke collector so he really loved it.
