Homemade 1st Birthday Flower Cake

Homemade 1st Birthday Flower Cake

This 1st birthday flower cake was made for a close family friend's daughter. The family gave me free range with what to create, and every time I thought of this beautiful baby, I kept seeing the flowers they always have in her hair and knew I'd do a flower theme. This was very easy to assemble, deliver, and serve.

The cake itself was vanilla with butter cream frosting. I made a small 6in round cake (yellow) to be used as the baby's smash cake. The flower petals (pink) are pull apart cupcakes made with a large star tip to give the effect of rose petals. Sprinkles were added to the cupcakes because what's better on a cupcake than sprinkles? There were additional cupcakes for the guests which were placed around the cake board, but the picture here represents the main cake. Lastly, I added the green stem and leaves to complete the flower look!

The parents and grandparents were very happy with the outcome, and little Gianna had fun smashing her first birthday cake.

Roses Are Red Cake

Roses Are Red

Roses Are Red

I made this cake for a member of our church. She likes roses a lot and the color red. The roses are sugar candied roses. I put a red ribbon around each layer to give it a nice silky smooth look.
I used the 2 rectangle cake pans to make the two layer cake.
The top one is an 8 inch and the bottom one is a 12 inch.
I used buttercream frosting to layer the two cakes, and I made the homeade fondant out of marshmallow because it tastes better.I used the small marshmallows with about a tablespoon of water and melted in a glass bowl in increments of 40 seconds at a time until the marshmallows were completey melted and mixed it in with the confectionate sugar until I made a dough ball. It took me 2 1/2 days to make it the cake.She enjoyed it along with the rest of her family.

A Bouquet of Flower Cupcakes for Mothers Day 108

A Bouquet of Flower Cupcakes for Mothers Day

A Bouquet of Flower Cupcakes for Mothers Day

I wanted to do something a little different for a Mothers Day gift and therefore learnt and made these on a cake course that I went on. The bouquet consists of six different flowers including the rose, sunflower, daisy, chrysanthemum etc.

I thought the bouquet looked rather impressive but very simple to make. Each cupcake is wrapped in green tissue paper.

To make the sunflower cake, I used an 'Oreo' biscuit and used a nozzle to pipe the yellow. Dots of yellow icing were then added to the top.

To make the rose, a rose nozzle was used.

This is a simple product to make and doesn't take too long. It's something that everyone should have a go at and is perfect for a gift for friends or family, rather than flowers.

Coolest Rose Garden Theme Handbag Cake 89

Homemade Rose Garden Theme Handbag Cake

Homemade Rose Garden Theme Handbag Cake

This Rose Garden Theme Handbag Cake is an red velvet cake covered with Kulfi ice-cream and melted chocolate. The red velvet cake is baked in a rectangular baking pan, and then cut exactly into two halves and stacked together vertically to give an handbag appearance.

Keep the ice cream out to reach room temperature (this is just enough to get it to spreadable consistency) and then spread a layer of ice cream over the cake and put it back into the freezer for a couple of hours.

After the ice-cream solidifies, pour hot melted chocolate over it. Before the chocolate solidifies stick in a few gummy worms and roses (made out of marzipan) and keep it to freeze again.

Coolest Pink Daisy Cupcakes "Petit Fours" 81

Homemade Pink Daisy Cupcakes

Homemade Pink Daisy Cupcakes "Petit Fours"

I made these Pink Daisy Cupcakes "Petit Fours" for my niece's baby shower. We went a little more modern with the colors. Instead of traditional pastel colors, we chose to do hot pink, black, and white. I call these cupcake Petit Fours because they are simply upside-down cupcakes with poured fondant icing.

The flowers are made from marshmallow fondant that were dried on a flower former. Making Petit Fours this way are easy because the sides are sloped and the icing spreads out more evenly. I think making cupcakes this way make them look a little more elegant and expensive than regular cupcakes that have a swirl of buttercream icing.

These are absolutely adorable. I have to remember this idea of inverted cupcakes. I love it.
