PJ Masks Cake for Christopher and Erin

PJ Masks Cake

This is the type of research for a cake that I absolutely relish.  Sitting down to watch PJ Masks on Disney Junior with my cup of coffee, I felt that I should be watching it sitting cross-legged on the floor with a cup of chocolate milk! This has to be one of the cutest children’s shows on TV at the moment and I loved the message conveyed in the first episode so much, that I was intrigued enough to watch another 2 episodes!  It was even more fun paying a visit to the toy store to buy the tiny figurines that would be my inspirational template for these 3 sugar paste figurines below; Gekko, Catboy and Owlette.

PJ Masks CakeIt has been fun to create cakes for Sue’s twins for her baby shower, their Christening and 1st and 2nd Birthdays so how brilliant to be asked to create yet another for their 3rd Birthday. Christopher fancies himself as Catboy and Erin sees herself as Owlette as they both love this show in which 3 friends are able to morph into their alter egos and go on the most amazing adventures.

To create the magical ‘night sky’ base for the cake, I covered it in a purple fondant and added first a spray of lavender then blue and finally white to the fondant. I diluted Rolkem Powder Dusts in the 3 colours using alcohol and then dipped hard bristled paint brushes into the colour before ‘spraying’ the cakes with my finger against the bristles. This was a very appropriate technique for a children’s birthday cake.

The 3 mini superheroes are all made using chocolate modelling paste. Catboy looking feisty and ready for action in blue and light blue stripe details, Gekko in bright leaf green (his suit textured, using a tool I use to create smiles on my tiny cupcake figurines) and then the pretty but strong & wise Owlette in a gorgeous pillar box red cat-suit trimmed with pink details. They stand awaiting their next adventure while along the bottom edge of the cake, the baddies, in 2-D, look on in the anticipation of action.

To complete the PJ Masks scenario for Christopher and Erin, I added buildings with edible paper windows and doors and highlighted accents. Twinkling stars and a full moon made for a bright night for all these characters to meet. Thank you Sue for allowing me to capture the sense of fun and adventure that Christopher and Erin must feel every time they watch their favourite TV show.

Baby Animals Cake

Baby Animals Cake

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!
