Flower Bouquet Valentine Cake

I’m definitely in cake decorating mood, as you can see this is my 3rd post in a row… well I just started learn about it and find out that decorating with buttercream is so much fun.

The church community I involve in had a valentine luncheon last sunday, and I brought this cake as part of the celebration. Since the very beginning this cake was all about its decoration, I focused mostly on how it looked like than how it tasted like 🙂 … I wanted to use this cake as my learning canvas for some buttercream flower techniques I saw in pinterest. As you will see, there are variation of flowers and colors.

For the decoration portion alone I spent almost 4hours, major part was in mixing and testing the color. What can I say, I really enjoyed it.. didn’t feel that long when you did something that you like.

I’m pretty happy with the look 🙂

Happy Valentine, hope this inspires you!

Ladybug Birthday Cake

As I said before, I don’t have many occasions to make a cake that I can experiment with the cake decoration… so making this cake for my little one 3rd birthday was a big deal to me, not only because I got the chance to decorate it but also because this was the 1st time for me to make her birthday cake. For her 3rd birthday cake, the theme is ladybug… I also made her dress with ladybug theme, I will post it later.

This was my 1st time to make fondant figure, ladybug… got the idea from pinterest. Lesson: wear gloves when mixing the color, it’s hard to clean once it stains our hands especially with red and black color.

The buttercream I used was American buttercream which is mixture of butter, powdered sugar, and vanilla. I’m happy with the final result, more important I’m happy that my daughter loved it.
