Mervyn's 2nd Pop Up Barney Dino With Star Bursts

Mervyn turns two on Boxing Day, with his favorite Barney the purple dinosaur popping up from this cake commissioned by his mom, Melissa. This is my second pop up Barney, the first being Evvah's Mini Cakes. Inspiration for this cake was from Pink Cake Box.
Bright and cheerful sky blue complimented by gumball colors!

Jonathan's 3rd "Thomas and Friends" Theme Cupcakes

My client Sylvia commissioned these cupcakes for her son Jonathan's 3rd birthday. Jonathan loves the show "Thomas and Friends" so the main focus of these cupcakes was a miniature sugar art model of Thomas the Engine. I also incorporated a couple of 2D faces of Thomas's friends which were really fun to make.

Thomas, the Little Engine!
In a cheerful mood
Complete with coal bunker, filled to the brim with coal
James (red), Thomas (blue) and Percy (green)

The whole set of 16 cupcakes
Happy Birthday to Jonathan and thanks for the order, Sylvia! : )

Saxophone for a Jazz Music Lover

I was commissioned by my client to design this cake for her colleague's birthday. He is an anesthesiologist but she didn't want any doctor themed cakes. She described him as a quiet and serious person who loves to listen to Jazz music.  We then decided upon a Jazz music themed cake with a sugar art saxophone for this Jazz music lover.

Much research was done the the anatomy of this elaborate musical instrument. I learned  the main parts , that is, the neck, the body, the bow and the bell. Also, different components like  mouthpiece, reed, octave key, octave pin, ligature, reed, neck cork, neck screw, tenon, keys, pads, key guard and the list goes on. At the end of the day, I was a confused cake artist albeit a very much educated one! ; )
