Beeeeeautiful cake for beeeautiful people

A friend asked me if I could do a white choc mud cake with a blue theme for her sister’s birthday.. here’s the result.. they were super happy with the cake.. might have to look into making the cake/icing less sweet and had a tip about adding a citrus flavour to cut through the sweetness from another friend.. woohoo!!



An oceanside celebration..

So I was referred on by a friend to bake some cupcakes for friends of hers who were celebrating their commitment to each other. The theme was Oceanside and I came up with the cupcake concept and also decorated the cupcake tier myself. I hired the cupcake tier and bought most of the material from Spotlight (Navy blues and white rope). The venue was at The Victorian, Albert Park.

Ocean: Silver paper, Chocolate mud cake, Blue & White Vanilla icing and Belgian Chocolate seashell (white marbled)
Beach: Gold paper, Vanilla cake, Salted caramel icing, Toasted coconut and Belgian Chocolate seashell (cream marbled)

Thanks J&C for the honour and I had such a great time doing them for you.. wishing you all the happinness for years to come!

Down by the sea

So last month, I received a message from a friend and she had friends that wanted some cupcakes for a commitment ceremony. The theme ‘Oceanside’ was picked as the ceremony is going to be near Albert Park. So after much consultation, here is a sneak preview of what I gave J&C for a sample:

It was any combination of a Vanilla or Chocolate cupcake base, Vanilla (Blue) icing, Caramel icing, Toasted Coconut, Chocolate ganache and Chocolate seashell.


So, after much thought and sampling, J&C chose the two left most cupcakes; Chocolate base with Vanilla (Blue) icing and chocolate seashell and the Vanilla base with Caramel and Toasted Coconut and chocolate seashell for the ceremony. I am really looking forward to it in October, J&C were really nice and I wish them all the best.
