Marriage proposal on the top of a mountain

Getting engage on the top of a mountain is surely romantic and for the engagement party I wanted to see if I could replicate the moment with a cake. The mountain was called Three tops and is located in Slovenia. Congratulations to my sister and her fiance.

Filling was chocolate and cranberry mousse.

Planes cake

My son wanted a Dusty cake with some of the other Planes characters for his 7th birthday cake. A more difficult challenge than the Cars characters but challenge taken and this was the result. Filling was banana and chocolate mousse.

Ella’s candy cake

The birthday girl gave me a drawing of what kind of cake she wanted for her birthday and it included different candy and a chocolate fountain! I wasn’t able to fulfill all her wishes but her school rucksack and a lot of candy did get included in this chocolate cake.

Lightning McQueen version 2

Ruben had his birthday and a favourite at the moment is Lightning McQueen and so that was to be the cake. He through in the wish for The King as well, so it was two cakes on one.

Another wish was a cake that tasted like Coca Cola, so that was anew challenge. The cars were made of chocolate cake with strawberry filling as you need a drier cake to make the car cakes.

The bottom, or the street and grass was then the  coca cola cake. I found a great recipe for that and it was a very moist cake with just enough flavour of the coke not to overpower it all.

And as for every birthday for Ruben I made Runeberg pastries, or as Ruben now called it Rubenberg pastries. I tried a new method this year, no cupcake forms but a big cake and cutting out the individual cakes. I think that gives a much better end result.

Snow White for Ava

A was very happy for being asked to make the birthday cake for Ava, a 4 year old girl who likes Snow White and purple. So no big surprise what was the theme for the cake.

I made a flat princess for a change, but as always the face is the biggest challenge to get right. Not sure that this Snow White looks as sweet as the Disney version :-)

image

The cake was a chocolate cake, with chocolate mousse filling and raspberry filling. Decorations made from sugar paste and marsipane.

A different one

With a bit of  time pressure to do a fun cake, but not using sugarpaste, I did a fudge cake with whipped cream decoration.

The filling was pear and chocolate and as the birthday boy liked Donald Duck I manages to makes some from sugar paste to decorate the cake with.

Ella’s every girls dream cake

Ella was having her 6th birthday and as a girl that loves pink, princesses, glitter and is a keen ballerina the theme for her cake was given.

So I made Ella into a ballerina and a princess on the cake and added loads of girly things: crowns, flowers, diamonds, pearls and just shiny stuff.

Sebastian’s football cake

Sebastian turned 10 and as a keen football player this year he had wished for a football cake. It should be him with a ball standing against the football net.

The net turned out to be the biggest challenge. I tried to do it with sugarpaste but as I feared it all crumbled to pieces when it was time to out the pieces together. So it became a cake where Sebastian stands against pillars of footballs and a net tossed in a pile. Sebastian was very sweet and said that actually this was really good as it showed him having such a fierce football kick that he broke the net :)

The cake was Sebastian’s favorite. Chocolate cake with dark and white chocolate mousse filling, raspberry jam and fresh kiwi pieces.

It was covered with chocolate butter cream and marsipan and sugarepaste.
