The Cake Chick

Why? Because life is sweeter with a little cake …

Minnie Mouse cake September 12, 2012

Filed under: Cakes — Connie @ 1:17 am

I recently baked and decorated a Minnie Mouse cake and cupcakes for a baby Lamees who was turning 1 and her cousin Rianna who also turning 1. The theme of the party was Minnie Mouse.

Lamees mother requested a vanilla cake with strawberry butter cream icing, covered in a light pink fondant with the quilted design (I was most nervous about this as it was my first time doing the quilted look), a pearl border at the bottom of the cake, Minnie Mouse black hat with ears and a polka dot bow as well as 6 matching cupcakes.

This is what I came up with:

I added circles of white fondant to the pink cake for Minnie’s spots, some lustre dust to the pearls and the little details around the “1”. The cupcakes turned out so cute. I love the tiny little bows.

Overall I was pleased with the cake and I have learned various new skills and techniques that I can use on this or similar cake again.

Happy birthday girls 🙂

 

Funky doll cake September 6, 2012

Lazy summer days = no blogging

All of a sudden at 11:30 pm tonight after a week of lazy beach vacationing, I started feeling pretty guilty that I haven’t blogged very much lately! I totally have the lazies this summer!

I’d like to share one of the funnest cakes I’ve made – the funky doll cake.

This was made for a co-worker’s daughter, Jenna, who turned 7. She wanted a funky pink, purple and lime green cake with some funky dolls, so that’s just what I did. Check it out:

Stay tuned for the next cake I am working on for this weekend – Minnie Mouse cake
