Minnie Mouse and Friends

This is a Minnie and Friends themed cake similar to a tiered cake that we made a few months ago. The 10″ cake has Strawberry Surprise flavor. The figurines are non-edible and the other decorations are made with fondant, including the big bow on top of the cake.

Hello Kitty

Here’s a Hello Kitty cake that we made which is very similar to one of our previous designs. The cake was a 4-layer 10″ Strawberry Surprise cake with mousse and fresh strawberry filling and buttercream frosting. Hello Kitty was hand-painted with food coloring on a sheet of rolled fondant.

Mickey Mouse Clubhouse cake

Here is a Mickey Mouse Clubhouse themed birthday cake for a 2 year old girl. The two-tiered Bubbly Butterscotch cake had a smooth and light mousse filling, and was topped with a combination of edible and non-edible toppers. Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Daisy, Pluto and Goofy were non-edible toy figurines, and all the other decorations were made with fondant. The birthday girl’s name was spelled out in yellow fondant stars.

Solar System cake

The entire Solar System on a cake! how cool is that?

We got the chance to create this unique cake a couple of months ago. The cake was for a 3 year old boy who loves his Solar System puzzle. This two-tiered cake has a Bubbly Butterscotch flavor and mousse filling with crunchy caramelized nuts. We made the Sun and the bigger planets with styrofoam balls covered in fondant. The smaller planets were simply made with fondant. We also made a little space shuttle to go with the Solar System, since the birthday boy loved rocket ships as well. The major challenge was in creating the ring to go around Saturn. We tried various approaches, and finally settled on making the ring with sugar candy.

Enjoy the pictures!

Cow Print cake

This is a simple cow print cake that we made for a little boy’s 2nd birthday. The birthday boy’s mom planned to place her own topper on the patch of ‘grass’ in the center of the cake, and unfortunately we do not have any ‘after’ pics. This is a 12″ 4 layer cake with Mango Tango flavor and buttercream frosting.
