Winnie the Pooh

Winnie the Pooh's body is a vanilla butter cake covered and filled with vanilla buttercream.  While his head  is made purely of  rice crispies treats covered with vanilla buttercream.  It is over 1 ft. tall and 1 ft wide.  This is a surprise birthday cake for a Pooh bear fan's sweet 16.  To avoid melting Winnie the Pooh was comfortably placed in a tall cake box as he makes his way home to his owner in Tofeild.  For now Pooh bear is hiding out in a neighbour's freezer anticipating the moment when he meets the birthday girl.  Bye Pooh Bear its been fun and nerve racking making you and I hope your birthday girl and her guests loves you!

Have a Cupcake Break

Cannot decide between vanilla or chocolate have both..

Have something healthy that is filled with carrots, apples, raisins, and pecan nuts.

Disney Princesses

This cake is half vanilla butter cake and half coffee chiffon cake.  6 different colours in total!  I filled the coffee cake with coffee buttercream and the rest is filled with vanilla buttercream.  Its a little frustrating to draw the three princesses because the image is so small and the star tip is too large for minute details like the hands and the face.  I used flesh colored fondant as base then I outlined the characters using a pointy gumpaste tool.  I used edible black markers to draw in the eyes, nose, face and red edible marker to draw in the lips. Happy Birthday Caicey hope you enjoy your birthday party.

Ella has a little lamb... Its fleece is white as snow.

This is a 6" round marble cake decorated in vanilla buttercream.  I usually cut the dome of the cake but this time I kept it.  Giving me a rounded top for the head of the lamb.  I pipped little rosettes for the lambs fleece.  The final touch is the lambs face.  I changed the lambs facial expression several times and finally I decided on the pouty look.

Happy Birthday Uncle Ferric!

My brother Ferric loves to travel.  I remember when we were little he got lost at SM Makati in the Philippines. Our parents went crazy looking for him.   He got out of our backyard in Marikina because he wanted to go exploring on his own.  Luckily a neighbour recognized him and brought him back home.  Yes, as a child he already been bitten by the travel bug.  For his birthday I made him coconut chiffon cake filled and frosted with coconut buttercream.  Palm trees and sandy beaches represents the sandy beaches he has been in his travel.





Happy Canada Day - Ohh Canada Breakfast

Eggs in Ameritte (French Toast) Basket

I never knew people eat eggs this way until I saw the movie "V for Vendetta".  The hero "V" served eggs in the basket for Natalie Portman's character Evey Hammond after saving her from the secret police.  I don't know the origin of eggie in the basket.  I assumed its British since "V for Vendetta" is set in London, England.  French toast known as "Ameritte" in France is of French origin.   Normally eggs in a basket is made with just plain buttered toast I changed it up and combined something French and something British together.  Canada's French and British history prompted me to make Eggie in ameritte Basket uniting two Canadian origin in one dish.  Thanks for viewing and please leave a comment.
