Jad says "This cake was made for my niece when she was 8. The tigger was made by colouring with edible paste on to rice paper as was piglet on the back of the cake. The cake was chocolate with chocolate butter cream, covered in fondant. The big piglet with the balloon was made from fondant and the name painted in the balloon with coloured gel. Unfortunately, I made the piped icing a little too soft so it didn't hold its shape. But she loved the decoration and loved the cake. "
Of course she loved it! And here is a back view showing little Piglet and a heart-shaped balloon.
Doesn't he look cute in this close-up!
Vodka and Cigarettes
Jad says "My dad loves vodka and cigarettes. This cake was a chocolate victoria sponge with chocolate butter cream. Covered with fondant coloured blue and the cigarettes, hearts and vodka bottle made from fondant." If I was awarding prizes this would have to win the 'cake for the oldest person' category! I haven't seen any others for octogenarians - has anyone made one for someone who is 100? Please send it in!
Jad says "My mum loves walnut cake. This cake is two walnut whisked sponges and two plain whisked sponges (eggs, sugar, flour) sandwiched with a vanilla ganache butter cream. Covered with ready to roll fondant. The roses were hand made using the left over ready to roll fondant. Pink colouring gel was added to the white fondant to make the pink roses. The leaves were made using green fondant and cut using a rose leaf cutter."
Mr Blobby Cake
Jad says "Hope you enjoy the Mr. Blobby cake. I made this last year. James' mum wanted him to have a Mr. Blobby cake for his 18th as he wouldn't cut his cake on his 3rd birthday."
She says " I made a large rectangular victoria sponge and a small one. Cut the large one to shape, and filled it with butter cream and strawberry jam. The small size sponge was cut to make the arms and legs and was also sandwiched with butter cream and strawberry jam. These were then put into place. Then covered with pink coloured fondant. The face details and the yellow blobs were also from fondant. The lettering were cut outs using gum paste."
"The first Mr. Blobby cake was a trial run, 'cause his mum wanted his name on the cake only. After she saw it she decided she wanted to have the words 'Happy Birthday James'. It was delicious."
Jad says "I made this cake this January for my grandson's 5th birthday. He loves chocolate cake and is good at making homemade chocolate cupcakes with his wooden spoon. He is very good at breaking the eggs into the mixture. His cupcakes usually come out better than mine that are mixed in my Kenwood! This is a chocolate victoria sponge sandwiched with chocolate butter cream. Then covered with very pale blue fondant so that the white egg shell will stand out, and coloured shapes cut out of fondant to make Yoshi and his broken egg shell and touched up with edible inks. I would have liked to have had the same coloured candles on the cake, but didn't have 5 of the same colour."
Jad says "This is a Fifi cake made for my granddaughter for her 3rd birthday in 2009. It is a chocolate victoria sponge with chocolate butter cream."
"The covering and decorations are all made from fondant icing. Fifi's face colour was made using white fondant with paprika/flesh colour paste to get the right shade. The inside of the ears and cheeks were brushed in using rose edible dusting colour. The eyebrows and lashes, lips and details on the trousers flower and details under the shoes were painted in using edible colours."
Jad says "I made this cake for my niece Emma. She loves purple. This is a chocolate victoria sponge sandwiched with chocolate butter cream. The cake and decorations are made from fondant and I also used dragees. The edge of the board has a pink ribbon round it. The first cake was decorated without flowers on the top and bottom. I thought it lacked something, so then added the flowers on the bottom of the cake, still wasn't quite happy and then added the final row of flowers on the top. I decided to break up the purple with the pink."
" It was not an easy task to get that purple shade. It was made by colouring white fondant with blue and red colour paste and African violet edible dusting colour. The paler shade of purple was achieved by adding white fondant to the dark purple. Didn't have enough of the same coloured candles and candle holders."
Tatty Teddybear Cake
"This Tatty Teddybear cake was made for my niece for her 9th birthday. It is victoria chocolate sponge with chocolate butter cream, covered in white fondant. All the decorations are made from different coloured fondant and I used dragees for the centres of the flowers. I made the grey for the teddybears by mixing black and white fondant until I was happy with the shade, and used water to attach the arms, legs and head. I made the rough edge on the teddys by using a fork and the details were then painted on, as was "me to you" on the foot after the teddys dried overnight."
She says: "I made this for my father for Father's Day. He loves voldka so I made his cake in a shape of a bottle and decorated it "vodka" style. It is a victoria chocolate sponge with chocolate butter cream, covered and decorated using fondant icing with little red hearts all around the bottom."
