I love this guy they call Cookie Monster. What a funny fellow. As a child I used to watch Sesame Street and watch Cookie Monster and think, ” If he just slowed down a bit, he’d enjoy his cookies more”. You know, because he had all those bits flying everywhere he couldn’t have gotten very many down. At the time I failed to realize that puppets can’t swallow…..or anything for that matter. Anywho….
This likeness of cookie monster is totally gluten free, right down to his cookie=)
I often have the opportunity to make a lot of kid birthday cakes, due to the abundance of cute kids in my life=) This one was for a bug and flower themed party for an adorable little girl. So much fun to make!
I love the bee and his beady black eyes=)
I thought for today’s post I would put up a poppy. I made this flower that has become synonymous with Remembrance Day in honour of all who fought for freedom.
Here is a little number I made for a cake conference in Vancouver. There was a display room for people to come and show off their mad caking skills. It features purple Peonies and some glittery green scrolls (however the glittery magnificence was only to be beheld up close. Camera didn’t catch the effect so much). It even found itself on t.v! Not to bad for a happy Styrofoam cake=)
I sometimes find it difficult to make “man-cakes”. Wedding, sure. Kid’s birthday, great. Flowers galore, you betcha. No so much with the man-cakes. Well the hubs requested a Jawa (critter from Star Wars if you’re not in the know) cake a couple of years back and I thought, “Great!!”. A little chocolate cake, a dollop of hazelnut filling and a modeling chocolate robe and you’ve got yourself a birthday cake!
Last year my mother-in-law was getting married, so of course I had to make the cake! (I do so love making cake!). She wanted flowers, but something that was unique and meaningful to her. So she chose a passion flower. I did not know what this looked like. When I saw one the thought of attempting this in sugar was daunting to say the least, but I persevered. So, here is the result of my efforts….
Welcome to my blog. I am doing this as a way of displaying my interest in all things related to cake and, well sugar in general. I’ll start by adding a photo of a sugar cymbidium orchid I made.
Thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoy=)
