King Pig and Angry Birds Cupcake

My friend Myra and I made this cake together for her son's birthday.  She did the hard part which is baking.  I did the fun part which is decorating (with some help from Myra).  Myra also made matching Angry Birds cupcake to go with the King Pig.  This is how we made Mathew's King Pig cake and Angry Birds cupcake. Myra used Wilton's "4-Tier Stacked Desert Tower " to display the cake and cupcakes.  The cupcakes are decorated with Angry Birds gummies that were purchased at Claires in WEM and with round rainbow sprinkles purchased at Bulk Barn. These are Wilton's 6" round ball cake pan (Bulk Barn for $9.99).   It needed 1 box of cake mix or 1 cake recipe. See cake pan insert for baking instruction.  It is important to brush the cake pans with shortening then dusted with all-purpose flour  for easy removal of the cake. Keep the cake cool in the pan for 10 minutes.  Remove cakefrom the pan and let it cool on the wire  rack for 6 hours.  Wr

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

Happy Birthday Canada, Elaine, and Ferric

This year's Canada Day we celebrated my brother Ferric and cousin Elaine's birthday.  It was held in Tita Beth's place.  Even if it there was a brief monsoon type of rain in the morning mother nature made nice by giving us perfect sunny weather in the afternoon.  Can you say AWESOME! Cake for my Brother Ferric.  His actual birthday is July 2. Celebrated it on Canada Day hence the Canadiana themed cake. Cousin Elaine's birthday cake.  Her party is 1 month overdue. She has exams and not able to party (Go figure). Bronze. Kids feeding the ducks with grass.   Goofy shot
