Flower 21st Cake

Flower 21st Cake

Sadie celebrated her 21st Birthday earlier this year ….. yes much earlier …. I have been away too long from my blogging!  This layered cake was a huge trend in the cake world this year and it is always difficult to make a trendy cake original.  When Di ordered this particular design for her daughter, I was so delighted to take part in this 2018 trend.

Flower 21st Cake

Di’s brief was a citrus flavoured cake and pink decorations, so I opted for 1 delicious orange sponge cake & the other a naughty naartjie flavour with puffs of zesty lemon buttercream between the 2 sponge layers and on top. If you look closely you will see I piped the meringue kisses in different styled swirls and combinations of soft and vibrant pinks & sprinkled them with tiny white beads. What you can’t see is that these tiny sweet kisses were a delicious passion fruit flavour. Flavour Nation made 2018 just the most delicious year ever as they introduced us to over 70 gorgeous water-based flavours.  I will admit here that my collection is growing weekly and many of the fruit flavours have been used to enhance 1 or 2 G&T’s this year!!!!

Roses tinged with bright pink and perfectly pert strawberries were all I needed to complete this delicious ensemble and I an embossed white fondant board just added the extra elegance.

Thank you Di and Sadie for another Cupcakes2Delite order and for allowing me to play with one of the sweet trends of 2018.

Bo’s 21st Cake

21st Birthday Hat Box Cake

What a pleasure it was to create this cake for Bo for her 21st.  The photos Stephanie, her mom, sent to me showed a beautiful, poised and elegant young woman and it was fun to translate these characteristics into a sugar paste figurine for her 21st Cake.  I had to create long eyelashes, silky brunette hair and a gorgeous curvaceous figure dressed in a sexy deep coral dress.  Bo’s sister, Amy, also wanted me to add on pretty jewelry.  It is all this love and understanding that my clients show for the person who is celebrating that make me want to create the perfect cake for them.

Stephanie and Amy’s idea was to have a Hat Box Cake with their beautiful Bo sitting on the box. As Bo was completing her course in BConsumer Science in Clothing and Retail Management, I thought it would be great to add details reflecting her passions. The cake board I covered in embossed sugar paste with movement on the board to reflect fabric. I added my favourite Crystal Candy Lace I made using Crystal Candy Midnight Garden Lace mat, which I dusted a soft gold.  Gold and silver antique scissors, gold buttons and rolled ‘fabric’ coral roses, a coral rose and a name tag completed Bo’s Coral and Gold Hat Box Cake.

Not only was this cake delectable looking but inside revealed a chocolate cake, layered with raspberry buttercream and coated in chocolate ganache. On collecting the cake, Stephanie and Amy loved the cake and I was delighted that they had trusted me with their order.

Stephanie … ” Thank you Lisa for this beautiful cake, we loved it. “

Purple Fairy Cake

Last Saturday Bianca celebrated her 21st Birthday with her family and friends and Sophie trusted me with her special cake for the evening. This cake had to be extra special for a number of reasons. Sophie wanted Bianca to have everything she had been looking for in a cake; her favourite colour purple, a bit of bling and something feminine and beautiful. This particular 2 tiered cake is based on an exquisite cake from Kek Couture and as Sophie loved the picture I adapted it to fit with Bianca’s celebration. The sugar modelling work of Kek Couture is inspirational in itself and I had to be able to do justice to this beautiful idea. The Purple Fairy had to be beautiful as Sophie sent me pictures of Bianca for me to use as a model for this pretty fairy and I was so delighted to hear that Bianca loved her fairy. When I delivered the cake, this little fairy with her painted rice paper wings looked so content sitting on her bejeweled and flowered cake in an exquisitely decorated room for the evening.

Finally Bianca’s cake had to be just that extra special as Sophie was my son’s primary school teacher 18 year’s ago and Teigh not only adored her but thrived in her class. Sophie was then and is still an inspiration to the young children she teaches. Bianca clearly has a special place in Sophie’s heart and in creating this cake I knew it would bring a smile to Bianca’s face and also say a huge thank you to another beautiful, caring and loving woman in my life.
