Peony Glitter Cake

This cake was for a couple who came back from UK.  The design looks normal on the outside...its the cake inside that is interesting.  Teal and peach color butter cake.

It was the first time I use edible glitter. It used to be more glittery but I guess after the controversy of it being non-edible they made it really edible this time but it came without that shine.  You win some you lose some.

- taste as good as it looks

Blush Pink Peony Wedding Cake

When it comes to color I am very inconsistent in my liking.  Today I can tell you its black black black.  Tomorrow I can totally throw you off balance when I say lilac!!!  Hehe....I am an emotional person and this emotion spreads to my color chart as well. 

But then...after finishing this cake I love it.  And after more than 2 months I am still in love with it.  In fact it has become one of my personal favorite.  Don't get me wrong...I have not crossed over to be all girlie and pretending to be young.  But I believe it is the subtleness of three shade of pinks together that is affecting my judgement.  It is calming yet flirtatious. I am weird?  But least it is my favorite for the time being.

Wafer Paper Anemone Cake

My latest craze is making wafer paper flower and I am proud to say that I have managed to find a way to vein and shape the petals like in sugar paste and even wire them.  Yay!!

These anemones are not the usual black and white but midnight blue and white.

Valentino Garavani Shoe cake

I was given the task to make this pair of shoes with sugar paste....change the color to white and gold (theme color) and to her size!!

The cake is in the shape of the shoe box complete with 'tissue paper' & cover and white sugar peony.

Chic-Rustic Chalkboard Anniversary cake

I have always wanted to make a rustic kind of cake and more so with chalkboard but unfortunately all customers cannot be convinced into it.  So when my auntie wanted to celebrate her 40th wedding anniversary I grabbed this opportunity to make her one.  The design was already in my head...rustically applied icing top tier and a  blackboard bottom tier which I can 'write' and life size sugar peonies against lots of different kinds of green herbs ....all on a tree trunk cake stand.  

Then I received an email from my auntie that my uncle would love to have a figurine of himself in uniform and her with long flowing hair with a tiara and wearing lots of jewellery.  Hmmm...a total opposite of rustic.  B..b..but...I do not want to let go of my ideas.  Hahaha...the little rebel in me said "why not!" cake there is no right and no wrong. I know, I know I am stabbing myself somewhere.  It is just not me, right?  But like I said it's the 'the little rebel in me'.  Chic and rustic can go hand in way!!!!!!!!!

The front chalkboard was free hand written ~

"17 May 1975
Love you then
Love you still
Always have, Always will
Patsy & Noel"
