Okay I am not to sure what you call this type of cake but I called it a tear apart cupcake cake, and this was my first one and it was pretty easy with some guided online tutorials. :) (Thank goodness for online tutorials!!!)
This is how i did mine. For this cake I used 19 cupcakes and tightly positioned them on my board with some buttercream on the bottom of the cupcake so that they don't move around. I filled in any holes where the cupcakes came together with buttercream. I then covered the tops of them with an even layer of pink buttercream (the evening out did take some time). After the buttercream was dry to the touch I traced the hello kitty face with a toothpick then outlined it with black buttercream. Then after outlining I filled it in with more colored buttercream. I used fondant for the whiskers. And tada my hello kitty tear apart cupcake cake. :)
I am definitely going to do more of these.
I wanted to congratulate everyone who graduated, may it be a step closer towards reaching your goal.
So being graduation week I had a few cakes to do. One of the people celebrating a graduations was my beautiful sister, Sarah. She graduated from UTA with her masters and of course I had to do it big! This cake was only one of my gifts to her for this great accomplishment in her life. I love you sister and know you will do great things in the work. Your touching people one life at a time. Congratulations again Sarah!
This one is a cake I got asked to do for a graduate from UTD. The parents wanted a round cake and since his fraternity nickname is Mad Hatter I saw this as an opportunity to make it into a mad hatter hat.
And last but not least was the boyfriends graduation cake. Okay on this cake I was a little strapped for time and decorated it in 20 minutes prior to his graduation party. I still loved the way it came out! Congratulations Boyfriend!
Okay, this was my first go at a fairy cake. My mom used to do this type of cake for my sister and I when we were younger but with buttercream so she guided me though this one. I started off by cutting a hole in the cake where the doll would fit. Then, wrapping the bottom half of the fairy doll in plastic wrap as to not get it dirty in the cake. Decorated her top in fondant and let it dry. I then covered the cake in fondant and made a hole and stuck her in the cake. I finished it up with some decorations and tada my very first fairy doll cake.
This was my first time every playing with isomalt. This has been something I have been wanting to do for a very long time, and at the cake show I recently went to they had hands on demos. I was super excited for this!
I got to blow sugar! I ended up making 2 blown sugar balls and the first one broke while I put it in my box to take home and the second one broke on the way home. I was upset but glad I got to experience it! As for my flower it did take some technique but I got it. The isomalt wasn't as hot as I though it was gong to be when working with it but then I was double gloved. Oh and I did break out a sweat. The heat lamps that keeps the isomalt pliable but out a lot of heat and the area was hot. If you got the right equipment I say give it a try. I did end up buying isomalt sticks and a mould but I still need to get my heat lamp and area to work in to really get down and dirty with the sugar.
This is my pulled flower from isomalt.
This is to the wonderful lady who has put up with me for so long and who has been there at my every beck and call and who introduced me to baking and was there to help me through every project I had that lead late into the night. Your the best mother and hope you enjoy your birthday and birthday cake which was made into the wee morning and hecho con mucho amor!
Happy Birthday Mommy!
My first cake show and I didn't want it to end. There were beautiful cakes everywhere and demos galore. I even got to blow and pull sugar! I absolutely loved it!!!
