Butterfly Cake

Last weekend we created a cake for a special Sweet Sixteen birthday. Such a milestone birthday definitely deserves a spectacular cake to mark the occasion. The birthday girl picked one of our favourites cakes ever – our Rainbow Butterfly Cake!  I truly loved making this cake, it’s just such a pretty and happy cake and never fails to bring a smile to my face.

The cake is a riot of colour with hues from the whole rainbow spectrum!  The butterflies are just so pretty with their delicate wings caught in mid-flutter as they rest on the cake.  The whole cake is edible as the butterflies are made of vanilla flavoured rice-paper.

One bonus of having a two-tier cake is not only does it provide extra drama and height (and of course more yummy cake!), you can pick multiple flavours too!  This particular cake had  a bottom tier of red velvet cake with tangy lemon buttercream and a top tier of vanilla cake with with strawberry buttercream.

Here are a couple more pics of the cake.  Enjoy!

Bridal Cupcakes

A couple of weeks ago I was asked to create some bridal inspired cupcakes for Hong Kong based designer Vivian Luk.  Vivian designs some truly gorgeous bridal and evening dresses, check out her dreamy creations here.  Plus she previously worked in New York with the queen of bridal design herself – Vera Wang.  If I were a bride-to-be I’d definitely head over to her atelier!

I wanted to create some cupcakes based on Vivian’s gorgeous dresses, so went with a white on white theme.   I kept things simple, clean and modern, with sculpted bows, delicate lace and a sprinkling of pretty flowers.

The cupcakes were lemon flavoured with a delicate limoncello buttercream frosting.  Just enough to add a grown up hint of alcohol but not enough to be overpowering.

These would also be perfect for a bridal shower or wedding event!

Calendar Cookies

Calendar cookies

I came across this idea for Calendar Cookies and I thought they were just fabulous!  They’d be perfect as favours for a wedding, or bridal shower – what a great way to remind people of the special date.  Or if you are feeling particularly brave, perhaps as favours for a baby shower.  You never know, the baby might surprise everyone and pop out right on time!
