Hi! been quite some time since my last post.
This is cake I made last week for someone’s 60th birthday. I wasn’t sure what would be the best color for 60th birthday, after mixing red, pink, orange, and blue finally I got this color and love it. These peonies were the biggest buttercream flower I’ve ever made, I was afraid they would not hold their shapes after transporting.. fortunately all come out great and the customer was happy with it.
Hope this inspires you!
These are cakes I made during the month of may, hope it inspires you!
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!
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.
Happy New Year!
Feels like just last month I wrote 1st posting in 2015… and here I’m now writing my 1st posting for this year. Everything seems so fast and quick nowadays… well talking about quick, this is a quick snack you can make anytime effortlessly, Raspberry Pastry.
Cut the pastry sheet square about 2″x2″, fold the corners onto the center, top with sweetened and softened cream cheese, top with raspberry, brush with egg wash, bake until golden brown, dust with powdered sugar. Serve!
