Hello Kitty Cake.

Here is a cake that I really loved doing. It was for a little girl's 5th b'day and she loves Hello Kitty!

And here is how I made it!!!!!!!

First I covered a 5" square cake drum in yellow sugarpaste and used Earlene's mat with the dots to imprint it. Then I let it dry overnight. Then added three forget me not flowers towards bottom right hand corner. I also cutout a number 5 from some dark pink flowerpaste and let it dry too....

Then took a ball of white sugarpaste and make it to a cone shape and stood it upright to use it as the body.

Then took two more medium size balls and made two cones out of them and flatten a bit to get the shape of the paws and glued them to the body.

I used the lid of my pastry cutterset box to cutout a circle for the dress as I couldn't find a bigger circle cutter. All the cutters I have are small for the dress.

Then I glued it to the body like this.....

Then I glued the number 5 to the front of the body.

For the hands, again two balls of white sugarpaste, rolled into two sausages and roll a bit more from the middle of each suasage and then flat one end.

Placed the body on the sugarpasted drum and then glued them to the sides of the body, and place them to look like she is holding the number 5. I also inserted a toothpick from the top of the body to attach the head.

To make the head, I rolled out a oval shape white sugarpaste and pinched from top left and right to make the ears.

I used a small ball of yellow sugarpaste for the nose and two tiny black oval sugarpaste for the eyes. I painted the whiskers with black paste with vodka. I made a little bow to go on the right ear.

And attach the head to the body using some sugar glue. And here it is............

More sugar creations!!!!!!!!!

I made these characters from In The Night Garden children's programme.

I made them for a friend of mine who used these as a cake topper. I also made few heads of these characters to go on cupcakes. She kindly sent me a picture of it. Here is her lovely cupcake display....

And here is a closeup of the cupcakes...

Happy New everyone!!!!!

Hi my dear friends..... I know its a bit late to wish for the New Year but I still wanted to!!! So hope all of you had a great Christmas and New Holidays......

Ok, so here are some cakes which I have done last few weeks.........

This was for my second son't b'day. Unfortunately we couldn't have the party due to snow. But he is having the party next month. So he is going to have another cake!!!!

The customer bought all the toys to go on the cake. I attached them to the cake with some royal icing.

This was for a little boy's christening. I use Earlin's mat to imprint the diamond shapes and then piped over it with white royal icing! I followed Elain Thomas's video to make the baby blocks. If you want to have a look, please click here...

And here is a cutting cake to go with it.

This was for a little girl's 1st b'day. The figure is actualy a fairy. There are wings at the back. I should have made them a bit bigger. Will keep that in mind for next time!!!!!!!!
