I like making cakes, and decorating them too. But I seem to have a bit of a problem when it comes to decorating them - if you want a cake in the shape of a dessert island, a baby monster, a pirate ship or a pair of shoes, no problem. If you want something normal, like, oooh, sugar roses or something - forget it!
Anyway, on with the pictures. All of these were made with obscene quantities of butter cream icing and fondant. And boy did they taste good!
The first baby monster cake - complete with lollipop rattle.
This little monster had purple fur and a blue bow...boy or girl? Who knows with monsters?
This fella's nappy/diaper shifted a bit in transport - but hey, these things happen with small babies!
What's green and fights crime? SuperGherkin!
(I asked a friend what sort of cake he'd like for his birthday party and he said "well, I would say surprise me, but I'd be worried I'd end up with a gherkin flavoured cake in the shape of a superhero..." With a challenge like that, how could I resist?)
A pair of dancing clogs in cake form, as requested by a friend who's an avid clog dancer for her 30th birthday.
