Sweet Treat "Funny Faces" Cake For Some Special Kids!

I volunteered this cake for my son Ethan's year end class party on November 30th at The Learning Connection, a school for children with learning disabilities. The cake was decorated with six 2D sugar art  "funny faces" that resemble each child in Ethan's class. According to the class teacher, the cake was a hit, not only with the children but also with the teachers from other classes, who came over to Ethan's class to take photos of the cake! Also, each child got to take their "face" home!

The boys... Ethan and  Daniel,
Nick and Ilya!
The girls... Ashley and Lea!
All together... funny faces galore!
Last day of school... Happy Holdays!
Ethan's favorite... "Dolly Mixture" candy!
Sweet holiday treat!

Christmas 2011 "Snow Child" Figurines!

Fancy one of these angelic "Snow Child" sugar art figurines to grace the top of your Christmas cake this season? 

Each "Snow Child" figurine is wholly handcrafted without the use of any molds and therefore each one I make will be unique! Height is 4.5 inches to 5 inches. I put in a lot of attention to details and lovingly hand paint their facial features with high quality food colors and edible petal dust for that perfect look. Each figurine takes at least 3 days (including drying time) to complete.  It can be kept as a keepsake for many years if kept in a cool, dry place e.g. display cabinet. Of course, you can choose to eat it too!

During this short period till Christmas, I shall only be able to make five of these "Snow Children" figurines. Last commission date is December 20th. Collection date is December 24th.

Merry Christmas and Season Greetings 2011! : )

Sebastian's "No. 1" with Baby Tigger And New Friends!

Sebastian celebrated his first birthday with a number "1" shaped cake, commissioned by his mom Chermayne. She requested for a scene where Disney's Winnie the Pooh's Tigger, a pig and a chicken are sitting together amidst grass and flowers. Here's my interpretation!

For extra cuteness, I decided on the baby version of Tigger!
My own creation... "Hugging Piggie" in a red jumpsuit!
Made this "Cheeky Chick" instead of a chicken!
Original design of the "Cheeky Chick" is by renowned sugarcrafter, Lorraine McKay of Extra Icing On The Cake!.
Put them together and we have... Baby Tigger and his new friends!

Clarins "Sea Lily" Cupcakes

My version of the "Sea Lily"!
Hand crafted... no two lilies are the same!

Here Comes The "Bugatti Veyron"... Fastest Car In The World!

Commissioned by Chermayne who wanted to surprise her husband Marcus with a simple design birthday cake topped with a sugar art model of the sports car, Bugatti Veyron. Marcus loves high performance cars, and what better way to impress him than with the Bugatti Veyron, the  fastest car in the world with a top speed of over 400 km/h! 

She provided me these pics of a fiery red Bugatti Veyron which threw me into a state of panic as I have never modeled a "non cartoon" sports car before. 

Here's my version of the Bugatti Veyron, crafted in sugar!

With adjustable side mirrors and hand painted details!

Solo Barney

Yes, I do take commissions for sugar art figurines alone. This one was commissioned by Joey who wanted a "sitting down" Barney.


... the purple dino!

Goodbye Barney! Into the box you go and off to your new owner. I will miss you...
