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…

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. I sandwiched them with chocolate buttercream and covered the structure with buttercream. Mistake number one 🙂 Carved…

A Birthday Blast!

The birthday boy wanted a Volcano. I wanted to create the best, smoking, spewing, exploding Etna. I researched dry ice and its merits and drawbacks. How to beg, borrow or steal it! Or simply to buy it. How to store and handle it. How to get it to smoke, effectively! But it wasn’t to be!…

At the Stroke of Midnight!

This was a cake for 5 year old Anika. Anika had three requests- a pink cake, Cinderella and a “glass” slipper! This was a 61/2″, three layered chocolate cake with pink vanilla flavoured buttercream frosting. I decided to cover the sides with ruffles, and used a petal nozzle to make them. Cinderella started out with…

Bloom

Arabian Nights

I have no excuses! None at all. But I’m back to posting now, and you are going to hear a lot from me! On my travel, on cakes and of course our wonderful Study Group on the Silk route, that just came to a close. For the finale, I wanted to surprise my friends with…

A little Ballerina

Move over George Clooney. There’s a new man in my life! Lischetti. Carlos Lischetti. He is super talented and a sugar artist to boot. And has a super talented twin brother who designs the most beautiful cakes that Carlos crafts into reality. Here is what I made for the lovely Miss Molly who turned 3…

Jake and the Neverland Pirates

J.M. Barrie wrote Peter Pan in 1911. A much loved classic about the boy who wouldn’t grow up. Walt Disney who loved the story, wanted to make an eponymous movie on the story. His plan was that Peter Pan would be his second full length animated movie, after Snow White and the Seven Dwarves. After…
