Thulani is a gentle, quiet man who makes us ladies magic cappuccinos and smoothies when we visit The Den at Trinityhouse, Randpark Ridge. I was showing off a couple of pictures of my Baby Shower Cake Topper to Lisa and Thulani mentioned that his daughter was turning 3 and that he would like me to make a cake for her. What could be more perfect for Dineo, celebrating her 3rd birthday with her family, than a bright pink teddy in a pastel pink tutu adorned with lace flowers cut out from a Crystal Candy, Midnight Garden lace design. The separate butterflies from this same mat I added as tiny features to the completed cake.
Dineo’s tutu-ed teddy needed a beautiful cake to sit on and I covered a decadent chocolate cake in a white chocolate ganache before covering it in a the palest of pink fondant. I used my new Crystal Candy, Will-o-the-wisp, lace mat and wrapped the cake in these delicate lace patterns allowing some of the design to gently kiss the embossed pink cake board. Mini non-pareil centred blossoms were perfect flower centres to the pretty lace and made this cake perfect for a little girl’s birthday celebration. Happy Birthday Dineo!
For Rea’s 1st Birthday her mom, Welile, ordered this Hello Kitty Giant Cupcake Cake and Cupcakes. The colours were the traditional pink and white of the Hello Kitty we know and love. I iced the cupcakes in a soft pink buttercream and added sugar paste Hello Kittys and pink sugar pearls to the cupcakes. The cake was popped into a deep rose pink chocolate casing and then iced with buttercream rose swirls each encasing a tiny pink blossom. I am particularly proud of my sugar paste Hello Kitty with her bright pink embossed dress and pink sugar bow sitting proudly beside her Giant Cupcake Cake. I completed this special occasion cake for Rea by adding her name and a number 1 in yellow and then topped off the cake with a cute Hello Kitty bow. Thank you Welile for such a fun order for your daughter!
Michelle turned 12 a few weeks ago and she wanted a pretty girly cake to share with her friends at her party. I made the giant cupcake cake for her and iced it with a creamy vanilla icing before adding flowers and butterflies in pink and lime green. I added a few orange and yellow blossoms and lime green embossed leaves to make her cake really pretty. I wrapped a green ribbon with white polka dots around the middle of the giant cupcake cake and added some flowers around the base of the bow to complete the cake. Hope you had fun at your party Michelle!
