Claire's "No.1" With Butterflies And Garden Vines!


Claire celebrated her first birthday with a number "1" shaped cake, commissioned by her parents Raymond and Sophia. They  requested for a sugar art figurine of a little girl, resembling Claire, wearing her white party dress with pink sash, to be the cake topper. The rest of the design was left to me.

I decided upon a bright and cheerful garden theme with lots of colorful butterflies, flowers, leaves, vines and even ladybugs! The cake was covered in sky blue fondant with a green vine border around the base.

Yo Ho Mateys!

My first cake for the year 2012 and it's a butter cream iced cake! To be honest, I haven't made one of these (butter cream cakes) for a while... the last one I did was probably two years ago. : o

This cake was commissioned by my client for her four year old son Kyle's "pirate" themed birthday party. Kyle loves "Jake And The Never Land Pirates", a relatively new show on the Disney channel. The original request was for a simple design fondant iced cake with four 2D sugar art faces of the main characters. However, Kyle's mom later requested for the pirate ship to be incorporated into the design.

All aboard!
