Colourful Rainbow Cake

I made a very colourful cake for a lady in Exmouth this week, she wanted it for a friend who she described as being very colourful herself so thought this kind of cake would suit perfectly.

I did a tie dye effect on the outside and rainbow sponge on the inside, there is no white on this cake at all, it is all coloured, even the frosting between the layers are matching colours to the sponge! It is attention to detail like this that people love. I didn’t get to see it cut so I asked if she could send me some pictures which she did 🙂 I do have lovely customers!

So here are some pictures inside and out, can’t get more colourful than this!

A Nice Variety of Cakes This Week – Exmouth

These are some of this weeks cakes, I have had a range of designs which I love. The quilt effect I did on the Hello Kitty cake for someone in East Budleigh was my favourite! I think the cake would have looked lovely on it’s own just with the quilting.

The Bright coloured cake had six different coloured layers inside which I haven’t seen yet (she is going to send me a picture) and was decorated as colourfully as possible, with an added pig! I love how customers come up with their own quirky idea’s. This was for a lady in Exmouth.

The weird creepy doll cake was an idea inspired by a movie I’d seen, I Particularly like doing these cakes as I love all things weird, creepy and goth.

Here are the finished products 🙂

Halloween Werewolf Cupcake Tutorial

I made some fun cupcakes for Halloween last year. I chose a Spider, Bat, Pumpkin, Witches hat, Ghost and Werewolf. I thought I’d share how I made them and give you a tutorial.

Here’s what you will need for the Werewolf:

Werewolf
Chocolate frosting
Royal icing
Piping bag and nozzle
Red lace sweet for tongue
Smarties or M & M’s for eyes
Giant Marshmallows

Bake a batch of cupcakes, whichever recipe you prefer and leave them to cool.

For the werewolf – The trickiest of them all but one that are liked the most! You will need to cut a triangle from the middle of a giant marshmallow to make the shape of the snout and mouth, then line it with red lace sweet and put to one side. Cut two ear shapes from marshmallow for the ears, it doesn’t need to be perfect as it will all be covered. Now fill your piping bag with chocolate frosting, you can use butter cream or you can buy tubs of this. Attach the nozzle marked 67 depending on which ones you have! (shown in pic’s on left of others) stick the snout to the cupcake near the edge and the ears at the top the start working around then with the frosting moving in outward strokes. Lastly add the eyes and pipe the teeth with royal icing.

Tips

  • Keep chocolate warm.
  • Use royal icing quickly if it’s left out it will start to set.
  • When you put normal icing on the cupcakes make sure you add what ever you put on top quickly as it will set then crack when you put pressure on.
  • Put fondant into position then leave it as this will crack if you try to move it later.

I hope you enjoy making these and impress all your friends, if you have any questions please feel free to ask : ) Follow me for more cake tutorials

Cool Pumpkin Cupcake Tutorial for Halloween

I made some fun cupcakes for Halloween last year. I chose a Spider, Bat, Pumpkin, Witches hat, Ghost and Werewolf. I thought I’d share how I made them and give you a tutorial.

The parts marked in orange and the things you need to prepare the day before.

Here’s what you will need:

The Pumpkin
Butter cream frosting
Orange and lemon sprinkles
Royal Icing
Greaseproof paper
Piping bag and small round nozzle

Bake a batch of cupcakes, whichever recipe you prefer and leave them to cool.

For the Pumpkin – Right for this you need some greaseproof paper and a template of the pumpkin, you can draw this on paper then trace it onto the greaseproof paper. You will need orange royal icing in a piping bag with a small round nozzle, place the greaseproof paper over the drawing then pipe the shape onto it, make sure you don’t make any part to thin or it will snap when you try to take it off. Make lots of these, it’s easy enough and you will have backup ones just in case any do break, these should be made the day before so they set properly.
Spoon orange butter cream onto the cupcake then either cover with orange and lemon sprinkles by turning upside down into a bowl of them or you can just do round the edges the same way.
Place the dried pumpkin very carefully into the top.

Tips

  • Keep chocolate warm.
  • Use royal icing quickly if it’s left out it will start to set.
  • When you put normal icing on the cupcakes make sure you add what ever you put on top quickly as it will set then crack when you put pressure on.
  • Put fondant into position then leave it as this will crack if you try to move it later.

Witches Hat Cupcake Halloween Tutorial

I made some fun cupcakes for Halloween this year. I chose a Spider, Bat, Pumpkin, Witches hat, Ghost and Werewolf. I thought I’d share how I made them and give you a tutorial.

Here’s what you will need for the witch hat:

Witches hat
Sugar cones
Fondant
Chocolate
Round cutter
Icing
Food colouring

Bake a batch of cupcakes, whichever recipe you prefer and leave them to cool.

For the Witches hat – Melt chocolate into a bowl and dip the cones in, stand them up and leave to set. Using a round cutter pour melted chocolate into it over greaseproof paper, not too much you just need the base of the witches hat, these don’t take long to set but if you are making a few you will have to keep the chocolate waiting to be used warm over a bowl of hot water to stop it setting. When that’s all ready, put green icing onto the cupcakes and then place the base on, add the cone onto it by using a bit of frosting inside the cone or icing round the edges. Use fondant to make the buckle ect or you can use royal icing! but fondant is easier.

Tips

  • Keep chocolate warm.
  • Use royal icing quickly if it’s left out it will start to set.
  • When you put normal icing on the cupcakes make sure you add what ever you put on top quickly as it will set then crack when you put pressure on.
  • Put fondant into position then leave it as this will crack if you try to move it later.
