Fish Shaped Cake

I was given freedom to design what I wanted when asked to create a cake for Andrew's 40th birthday.  When I was told he liked fishing, I knew exactly what I would be making!'

After covering the cake board with fondant (something I always do to ensure a beautiful finish), I carved it to look like a wooden planks.  Next, I baked and layered a delicious strawberry cake; yellow cake with fresh strawberry slices, Swiss meringue buttercream and strawberry compote.  I shaped the cake to look like a chubby trout and covered it in fondant which I coloured silver and green and blue.  A special thank you to Merissa of Spring Lake Cake for her inspiring design.  I think this might be the yummiest fish ever!  Happy birthday, Andrew!

Pink Polka-Dot Cake with Smash Cake

Nicole wanted a special cake for Mya's first birthday and together we decided on a design to match the party decorations, pink on pink polka-dots. 

After the party, Nicole sent me some pictures of Mya as she enjoyed her own personal smash cake. 

I think she loved it!

Every time I look at this picture I have to laugh!!  What a sweetie!
