Jordan's wigg-e-ly worms

Ever since my son, Jordan, saw Debbie Brown's worm cake, he has obssessed about having it as his 6th birthday cake.  This is my version, on cupcakes (ran out of time to make him a bigger cake). 

He was really excited when he saw his worm cupcakes and kept running up to me to tell me how much he loved his 'wigg-e-ly worms'.  This is the part I find most satisfying with children's birthday cakes - they fall in love with their cakes and bubble over with excitement.  

The worms would look really cute too as caterpillars.  Perhaps for a 'very hungry caterpillar' party?

Dragonfly Dreams

Custom birthday cake, cupcakes and cookie party favours for a 60th birthday party held at Sirromet Winery.  The designs were based on the party invitation from zazzle.com.au.  

Allegra's christening cake and cupcakes

I love it when a client comes to me and presents me with an invitation design that I can recreate on cakes; more so when I can see in my head exactly how it will all look. 

Allegra's christening cake is a replica of the birds, flowers and clouds on her invitation.  We kept the cupcakes simple, and merely carried over the colour scheme on the cupcake cases and sprinkles. 

"The cake and cupcakes were just delicious - thank you!  I have to make a special mention about that chocolate cake though; that was really outstanding and everyone enjoyed all of it.  The figurines were crafted in such likeness to the invitation - it was great."

Daniela's Kite Party

A kite birthday cake with matching cupcakes for a 4th birthday.  The kite party was held at a park a couple of weekends ago, on a beautifully sunny day.  I also made kite-shaped vanilla bean sugar cookies, and provided tubs and rolls of icing and sugarpaste for the kids to decorate their own cookie.
