These 2 sugar Bassets completely stole my heart and it was hard to let them go on their merry way to celebrate a wedding. This is another story where my client, Nicole, asked me to make a Basset Wedding Couple in sugar for her sister’s wedding. Not being a natural at creating animals, I was hesitant to accept the order and then not be able to capture the cute spirit of the 2 bassets in the photograph Nicole sent me. With my client’s faith in me, I hand modeled these 2 characters and finished the shy but pretty bride basset with her rose lace veil and her dashing groom with his top hat and jacket. Thanks Nicole for allowing me to breath some sugar life into your family bassets for such a beautiful wedding.
Natanya and her family have 2 gorgeous labradors and 5 beautiful cats that they not only adore, but that all had to fit onto one cake for her daughter, Kirsten’s 17th Birthday Cake. Thank you Natanya for sending through loads of photos of these furry friends. Luckily for me non of them are camera shy and I was able to try and represent each of them in sugar for Kirsten.
I am guessing that at times they cause chaos and mayhem in their household, but I have shown them here sitting peacefully together, all looking like butter wouldn’t melt in their mouths! It was great to make you all, Spock, Mac, Leo, Luna, Pixie, Bella and Astro! Happy 17th Birthday Kirsten and I am so pleased you loved your cakes and all your little sugar animal figurines!
Bella and Astro below looking as good as gold, but bet they are as mischievous as all labradors can be!
Pixie is a cute white kitten and I made her with Zeelandia Sugar Paste!
Happy Birthday Alicia, wishing you a wonderful 21st birthday and a year and lifetime ahead of adventure and amazing learning experiences. It was a pleasure to share in your celebration making these cute Bunny & Leaf Cupcakes for your party. I am grateful to have met you and hope that your quiet and intelligent personality and the extremely gentle footprint you leave wherever you go will charm everyone you meet in your friendship as well as in your working world.
What a cute way to start off 2017 with this Baby Animals Cake. As I blog, 2 year old twins, Christopher and Erin, are celebrating their birthday with family and friends. Jan and Sue decided on a Wild Baby Animal Theme for their cake and my only brief was that it needed to include 6 of their favourite wild animals.
Lording over the cake, in sweet golden yellow style, is a baby lion. He has made himself at home in the grass and looks on nonchalantly at the other animals. The zebra is Christopher’s favourite animal and he has the same sweet expression and curly hair tumbling onto his forehead as Christopher has. He is sitting close to the giraffe, Erin’s favourite animal. She is just as pretty as Erin and is peeping out inquisitively from her leafy tree. The hippo wallowing in his pool, the baby elephant looking sleepily at the rest of the gang and the impish monkey swinging from the tree complete the baby wildlife for the cake. Thank you again for your order Jan and Sue and enjoy the antics that Christopher and Erin are sure to get up to at their party!
