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 🙂

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.
