Rainbow Velvet Cupcake

The theme of my neice's 2nd birthday is rainbow (March 16,2012).  So I made her my very own rainbow velvet cupcake.  This is a lemon cupcake frosted with lemon cream cheese icing.  On the outside its not a flashy cake but as soon as you cut into the cake a rainbow full of colours is revealed.

Divide cake batter into 5 bowls.  Dyed each bowl with
different colour using liquid food colouring.
Spoon each colour into the prepared cupcake tin.

Charisma and I are the only ones that are healthy enough to attend Sierra's birthday.  Earlier that day I got a phone call from SAB informing me that Bronze is not feeling well.  Its a good thing that I have the car that day and I was able to quickly pick up Bronze from school.  Turns out Bronze had an upset stomach from his antibiotics.  Chris had a bad cough. Cough plus restaurant is not a good combination so Chris just stayed home with Bronze.

Minion Cupcake Cake

This is how I made my Ube (purple yam) Minion cupcake..  Enjoy! Come see how I made it in this youtube video.  Don't forget to subscribe for more updates! Used Wilton tip 1M to create the rose pattern on the cupcake.  Start pipping from middle cupcake and out. To create the eyes...  You will need 3 different sizes of round cookie cutter (3", 2.5, 1 inches, white fondant, grey fondant (goggle frame), light brown fondant (iris), and black fondant, large ball tool, and piping gel.  Cut out a 3" circle out of grey and white fondant.  Set aside in large ziplock bag.  Cut out a 2.5" circle in the middle of the grey circle.  This will be the frames for the minions goggles. With a small brush apply a small amount of water along the perimeter of the white circle.  Lay down the grey frames on top of the white circle.  Using a ball tool (See pic bellow) make an indent on the bottom centre of the white circle.  Place the brown 1" circle in the di

Hello Kitty Cupcake Cake

 This is my favourite.  I put together 37 cupcakes to create this cute hello Kitty cake. Buttercream Recipe: 1 cup butter at room temperature 4 cups sifted icing sugar 1 tablespoon vanilla extract 3 tablespoon milk The amount of icing sugar, vanilla extract, and milk can be modified to suit your taste.  Beat the butter until smooth then add the rest of the ingredients beat everything on medium speed on electric beater until smooth.  Enjoy! Hello Kitty in her turtle.  Baby its cold out here. -31 with -40 windchill. Pipped roses on individual cupcakes using Wilton tip #1M.  Cover gaps with more icing. This is how I arranged the ube cupcakes.  31 all together.

3 Dimensional Elmo Cake

I made this Elmo cake for my cousin's daughter, Jayla who turned 3 a few weeks ago for her Sesame Street Themed birthday party.  The cake was a marble chiffon cake crumb coated and filled with chocolate buttercream.  For Elmo's fur I used Wilton's "grass tip" to pipe out red vanilla buttercream.  Elmo's eyes and nose are made with fondant which I secured using toothpicks. Used Wilton Doll Cake Mould for the body. Sports ball cake pan for Elmo's head. Inserted straw for structure support. Filled each layer with chocolate buttercream. Normally I trim the tops of cake to create an even surface here I kept the dome and turned it into Elmo's slightly open mouth.  Make sure the top half of the circle is smaller than the bottom half.   Important note:  Elmo's unique qualities are his big wide upward smile, his football shaped head, and the top half of his head is smaller than the bottom.  Its hard to achieve
