The greatest show on earth... it's about to begin!

This cake was so much fun to make!  I know the feather is not edible, but this little fondant elephant looked so cute with it... !

Soccer cake

Well, April has been the month for boys' birthdays. This soccer cake for Marko was a chocolate cake, covered with green buttercream, using the grass tip. The ball was baked in the Wilton soccer pan, and was covered in fondant. Quite fun to make!

Simnel Cake

Where was this cake hiding? It's absolutely out of this world...! Baked with marzipan inside... So good!

360 gr. cake flour
1/2 ts salt
1 ts mixed spice
1 ts ground cinnamon
1 cup of butter
270 gr brown sugar
5 eggs
rind of 1 lemon, grated
1/2 cup raisins
1 cup of dried cherries and candied fruit peel
60 gr of almonds, chopped
4 tb milk
2 tb apricot jam
300 gr marzipan

1. Grease and line a 9" cake pan (3" high). Sift flour, salt, spice and cinnamon together.
2. Cream butter and sugar until pale and creamy, add lemon rind.
3. Add eggs one by one. Add 3 tb of flour towards end to prevent mixture from curdling.
4. Fold in the rest of the flour, fruit, and milk.
5. Spoon half mixture into pan and spread evenly.
6. Roll half of marzipan to a 9" circle. Place on top of mixture.
7. Spoon rest of mixture and hollow centre slightly.
8. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes, then at 300 degrees for an hour.
9. Cool in pan for 15 mts. Turn out on to cooling rack.
10. Brush centre and edge of cake with apricot jam. Roll remaining marzipan to decorate.

* I could not find marzipan in the supermarket (they only bring it for Christmas), so I make my own with 2 egg whites, 1 1/2 cup of ground almond, 2 or 3 cups of icing sugar + 1 ts of vanilla extract and 1 ts of almond extract. Put everything in Kitchenaid and mix until desired consistency.

How to make a Fondant Bunny Rabbit

 Ready for the Easter Bunny?

We will start with the shape of an egg, any colour you like...

And then, you will need 5 white fondant balls: 4 pea size balls and 1 bigger ball for the head

So, with 2 of the white pea size balls, form feet and attach with edible glue

Now you will have the feet attached, you need to form the head with the bigger white fondant ball, and add a very small pink fondant ball for nose and mouth. Attach head with glue and you could add a fine spaghetti just in case. Add ears with edible glue and paint eyes with edible marker...

And now it is time to attach the arms which have been done out of 2 of the white pea size balls, as shown in picture 2.

You will probably will get carried away and add a little chick, too... Or a carrot...

Whatever you do, just have fun! And have a great Easter weekend!

Fondant bunny rabbit

Isn't she adorable? Tomorrow, I will be posting the photos to show you how to make this cute bunny rabbit with fondant. She is small enough to sit on a cupcake or small cake. I love her tiny fondant carrot! See you tomorrow!

And we welcome the bunny rabbit!

In the same way we embrace the spring, we welcome the bunny rabbit! During this week, I will be posting some ideas on how to decorate cakes or cupcakes with the bunny rabbit. This is an 8" cake, iced with vanilla buttercream, and the border done with a grass tip. Ears, face features, and flowers done with fondant.

Eating Daffodils!

When spring arrives, I feel like eating Daffodils! At least Daffodils made with royal icing. The icing on this cupcake is a "Vanilla Frosting Mix", made with natural ingredients. I had to try this icing I found at Whole Foods, among the Pamela's Products. It works quite well for piping. A little bit too sweet for me, but you might want to try it. The only thing you add is butter and water. See if it works for you!

 A beautiful day here in Vancouver! Perfect to showcase this Hawaiian cake done for Danielle for her 10th birthday. I am so proud of the fact that I have done all her birthday cakes! This year she wanted something with surfboards and a Hawaiian theme. I used Graham crackers for edible sand... So, there you have it: I have been making cakes for 10 years now! Happy Anniversary to me!!! ;)

Graduation Day!

Have I told you how much I love graduation day? THIS much! It has always been a very special day to me because when each cake is already finished, this is what you see... Absolutely lovely! It was graduation day at Michaels, Vancouver (the Broadway store), and these cakes you see here belong to Anne, Valerie, Edith, Tom (who kindly sent me all these pictures), Sandra, Barb, and Anna.
Congratulations to all of you!!! :)

"Breast Friends"

I wanted to share these photos of Amita's beautiful heart cake and cupcakes. She made them, on Valentine's Day, for a breast cancer fundraiser organized by a team called "breast friends". I heard that the cake and cupcakes were delicious! Way to go, Amita!

Happy Valentine's Day!

It's a Gingerbread kind of love...! Remember those candy hearts? When I bought them at the supermarket the other day, the girl at the cash register told me they are called "Conversational Hearts'... I don't know how that works, but I like that name! Have a very lovely day!!!

End of hibernation...

I just realised I haven't written anything in this blog since last year! Wow! I think I was just hibernating... Caught up in a white sweet dream... Not that I haven't been doing things... Like this beautiful and delicate wedding cake: All buttercream and white chocolate shavings on top! Love it!
Well, this is the end of hibernation for me. Back to reality! And also, some kind of celebration. I just realise I have been making cakes for 10 years now. Isn't that neat? So, Happy Anniversary to me!!!
