Cirque du Madagascar... The Circus Comes To Town!

My biggest commission to date… This Madagascar Circus themed cake was commissioned by Sennie for her daughter Davina’s first birthday bash! Little Davina’s mom wanted all the main animal characters of the Madagascar movie, replicated in sugar on a 3 tiered cake with the emphasis that the cake must be colorful and happening. She gave me full reign over the design and so I came up with this colorful circus themed cake with eleven Madagascar animals performing their best circus acts!
  • Gloria the Hippo balancing on tip toe at the pinnacle of the circus tent and with parasol in hand!
  • Alex the Lion in his role as the “Ring Master”!
  • The penguins with their acrobatic act where we have Kowalski balancing on Private’s head and Rico balancing on Skipper’s head! Both Private and Skipper are also balancing on one leg at the edge of the cake!
  • The lemurs King Julien in his bejeweled feather headdress, right hand man Maurice and cute Mort presenting the circus plaque with the birthday girl’s name on it!
  • Marty the zebra and Melman the giraffe in their roles as the “Animal Cannon Balls”, about to be shot out of the cannons!
To give the cake a vintage feel, I painted the scrolls on Davina’s circus plaque and the tip of the circus flag pole with edible 24K gold.

Twinkle Star & Owl Balancing Act!

This “Twinkle Star & Owl” cake was commissioned by Lynn for her son Timothy’s first birthday celebration in May. Little Timmy is a very much loved baby because his parents traveled interstate from Melaka (3 hours journey to and fro), braving heavy traffic and rain to collect his cake!

As this is my second cake of the same theme, I wanted it to be significantly different and more challenging than the first one I did. So here they are, as never seen before… Twinkle Star balancing on top of the Owl! Woohoo! I can’t help it! I seem to be addicted to balancing acts for my sugar figures at the moment! The cake was also air brushed and tooth brushed for the starry night effect.

The Twinkle Star and Owl is from Super Simple Learning’s “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star” YouTube video. The story is about a lonely owl who wants to play and is looking for a friend to laugh and have fun with.He raises his eyes and see a twinkle star in the sky and decides to fly up, up, up…above the clouds and closer to the star.He meets the star and asks:“Do you want to play?”.
