Cakes cakes cakes

Yes, I've been slacking on updating my cake blog. Sorry. I just always put it off, and put it off, and then put it off some more. So here, I finally uploading pics of the cakes I made in the past month or so. You ready?

First one here, a SUPERMOM birthday cake. I was provided with the image, well the top half anyway, and he asked me to add the legs, make the cake in the shape of the image, and make the word "supermom." It was a total surprise for the wife. He came to pick up the cake the night before and left the cake in the car overnight to surprise her the following day. Aww... how sweet.

The same guy asked me to make some butterfly cupcakes for his daughter's 9th birthday. He asked for cupcakes with purple and lavender. I laughed at him because it's funny to hear a guy separate purple and lavender. He said that's just what the wife had told him to order. So then I asked if his daughter would want some pink with it. Oh no, she didn't want any pink, so just throw in some blue and yellow. Interesting that a 9-year-old girl doesn't like pink. She knows what she wants or doesn't want for sure.

I piped the frosting on the cupcakes to resemble flowers and then put fondant butterflies that were made ahead of time on them. I think they turned out rather cute for a little girl's birthday party.

This one is made for Christmas. A grandma wanted a cake for the kids table at her Christmas celebration. So this is what I came up with. I like the little gingerbread man and candy canes on the bottom tier. Christmas tree is fondant covered ice cream cone.

Then came an Xbox cake. I am not 100% happy with it coz I didn't really get the details right. The controller turned out very fat and chubby. We don't have an Xbox at home to copy so I just looked at picture online.

Made this for a 10-year-old birthday party. He's a big fan of the Norwich City Football club, so that's the color and logo of the team. I wanted to make a whole football (soccer) but they didn't need that much cake so I ended up making just half of a ball. Some of the pieces of the football didn't want to match up nicely but it was interesting how they went together. Not bad, not bad. The boy was very happy with it.

Ok, that's all for today. I will upload some other ones tomorrow or later. Thanks for looking. Have a great weekend.
