Classic, Elegant Rose Cake - Gumpaste Rose

Though this cake was little, only a 6", it took me hours to make! All the petals on the outside of the cake are made from gumpaste. They were cut, then using an impression mat, veined and then each edge of every petal was rolled to make them look realistic. I had to make the pedals a few days in advance as the cake had to be refrigerated and I didn't want the pedals to go limp from any moisture in the fridge.
 
The gumpaste rose topper was made the same way as the petals on the sides of the cake. I had to make each petal individually and then bend and attach it to the rose.
 
 

Minion Birthday Cake

This cake was massive!! It was made from 4, 8" cakes stacked and carved! It was then covered in buttercream, then fondant and then decorated to look like a happy minion :)

Bubble Guppies Birthday Cake

My Niece just turned two!!! It's crazy how fast the time goes once you have kids!
Her FAVORITE show is Bubble Guppies so her Aunty Tor had to make her a special bubble guppies cake and matching outfit!
 

All Bubble Guppies were cut by hand and hand painted...which took hours!!
 




Love the way it turned out though!!
 
AND......
 
Of course I had to make the birthday girl a special outfit!! Outfit details can be found at Little Birds Tutus & Boutique

30th Birthday Hunting Cake

This cake took FOREVER!! All the black fondant pieces had to be cut by hand which took me a few hours :/
The cake is painted to give it that 'sunset' glow. There is so much going on but I love how it all comes together!! I especially love who it is a reflection of the birthday boy :) Fishing, hunting and atv'ing!
 





Elsa Frozen Cake

ELSA!!!!!!!!!!!!!! FROZEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I'm SURE I'm not the only parents who knows all the words to ALL the songs from the movie Frozen.
I was asked to make a frozen cake and this is what I came up with. It is covered in buttercream.
 
 
 


What better way to cap off a Frozen birthday party then with a frozen outfit! Both outfits were created by Little Birds Tutus & Boutique


 

Spiderman Cake

Love this cake. Spiderman was hand sculpted and the skyline was hand cut from fondant.

Buttercream Painted Nature Cake

I was so scared to try painting on buttercream icing! I had painted on fondant before but NEVER buttercream.

I was asked to make a Nature cake and had free reign on the design. I love to paint so I thought I would try to paint a scene on this cake.


The chairs on top are made from fondant. These are the first 'Muskoka Chairs' I have made from fondant they were a little tricky BUT they turned out!


 All side of the cake were painted by hand using vodka and food gels.
