Chef Fondant cake

Worked with my daughter to put together this chocolate cake for her friend's birthday.
The cake is a table filled with food specially for an aspiring chef.


I covered the cake with blue fondant and bordered with balls of similar colour.
I made a red&white checkered fondant for the table cloth.

My daughter and I then worked on all the items using fondant and gumpaste.

The Wilton Method of Cake Decorating

Just completed my Course 3- Gumpaste and Fondant.
It is an interesting and enriching experience, creating different types of flowers and creating the most perfect cake- the fondant cake.

For the graduation cake, I covered my cake white and topped with roses.

I quilted the side and covered it with silver beads.

Happy 80th Birthday, Mum

I wanted to bake something special for my mum's 80th birthday and so I decided to create something that is close to her heart-the sewing machine.
She has sewn the most beautiful dresses using her Singer sewing machine.
Thus, I decided to make her a Singer sewing machine cake.
The base cake is orange walnut cake.
The sewing machine model is made up of fondant.
This time, it is bonding time between mother and daughter as my daughter helped in moulding and shaping the various components for the cake.

Pink elephant and Blue whale

Assisted my son in baking and assembling this cute fondant cake.
White base with two lovely cut-outs of an elephant and a whale, designed and cut by my son.
A good bonding project between mother and son.

Pink elephant and ...

and the blue whale.
