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!

Mother’s Day Cupcakes

It’s Mother’s Day today!  Or at least it is if you are in the UK.  I’m always confused in Hong Kong as to which day to celebrate it on, the US or the UK date?

Anyway, in honour of (UK) Mother’s Day, I made these pretty pastel pink Carnation Cupcakes.  They were for a friend’s mother who kindly cooked us all a huge feast for lunch today.

The cupcakes are made of vanilla sponge, but filled with freshly-made strawberry compote.  Yummy.  They were then iced with a silky smooth swiss meringue buttercream to create a frilled carnation on top.  Aren’t they pretty?

These cupcakes would also be perfect for a baby shower or a special afternoon tea party.
