Rainbow Cake

“Life is like a rainbow, You need both sun and rain to make its colour appear” It turns out that I’m not the only one in love with rainbows! Every child below 10, that’s celebrating its birthday, regardless whether girl or boy, loves rainbows or rainbow cakes. I’ve made several of these rainbow tie-dye cakes…

Burger and Fries

Nope! This is not a recipe for making a burger and frying crinkle cut potato chips. I don’t teach you how to make mustard and home made tomato ketchup. Or even how to whip up sesame buns in half an hour. I just want to help you make it— in Cake! Yup….you heard me right….

Yo Ho Ho, and a Bottle of Rum!

A brand new client, a carved 3-dimensional cake and non stop rain in Singapore! A three fold challenge! I started by baking two rectangular chocolate cakes, and cut and stacked them to give me the height I required.

Bloom

This one was for a little girl who turned 8 last week! This cake was so many firsts for me! First time doing a pink ombrĂ© buttercream frosting. First time I heard of Winx Club and Bloom– can you believe it! She even has a Facebook page. I started with 4 layers of pink and…

A Little Mermaid

Of all the Disney princesses, I love the Little Mermaid the most! As, most little girls do, I guess. So when little Pavaani’s mom asked if I would make her a cake with a mermaid on top, I was super excited. Modeling the mermaid was fun but stressful. Fondant with just tylose, does not work…

Tinkerbelle and Pixie dust

Amaara’s mom wanted a fairy tale garden feel to her Birthday cake. She asked me to make a pale green cake covered with vines and trellises and an abundance of flowers. I had fun piping intricate scrolls on the top and sides of the cake. The cake was two pink and white marbled buttery layers,…

Somewhere over the rainbow!

I love my 1-2-3-4 cake. It tastes and smells divine. It does not crumble easily. It remains moist for days. Plus the recipe is easy to remember. Easy as 1-2-3. But I recently tried this recipe from Mel’s Kitchen Cafe and was blown away. It is delicious! It is tender and tasty. It freezes beautifully…

Wilton cake decorating class

For some time now, I’ve been debating doing a cake decorating course. I’ve always felt that my cakes look too home grown, too rustic. And so I finally embarked on my class at Wilton. On day one we torted cakes and filled piping bags, used couplers and made buttercream. In the second half of the…
