MINECRAFT! MINECRAFT! It was a disaster for me!

Leave a comment

This is the vefy first time attempting to create a minecraft cake.

Has been sourcing the web for ideas and inspiration but since it was my first attempt, I had decided to go for some “simple” design.

It was what I expect. I had planned to use chocolate ganache as the filling for the cake as well as the coating.
However, my first attempt to “build” the cake with different tones of squares, was a failure. The ganache oozed out inbetween the “grid”! Take a close look:

But, that was not all. The nightmare came when I woke up in the morning! Everything slide off the cake!

The name, the squares… and the fondant seems to be melting and green “liquid” was dripping down the cake!

I had no choice, I was working on the cake till 5am the day before and all my effort went down the drain. I had to re-do the decoration in the morning before my customer collect the cake. Time was pressing.

I scraped off the ganache and created the “soil” effect for the bottom instead of giving a smooth finishing and re-create the green grid and have a white backing instead of directly placing the square on the cake. And thank God, it wasn’t that bad then oozing green fondant and melting wordings.

The grid was smaller and much neater than previous.

First rabbit theme cake

Leave a comment

This post has been out-dated as this cake was done 2 weeks ago.

It has been quite awhile since I last did a rabbit themed cake.

This time round I had decided to mould something different from the rabbit which I had done before. Love the cuteness of this cake.

I like the cleanliness and brightness of the cake.

As per request, rainbow and mushrooms are the birthday boy’s favorite, hence it was added to the cake.

The rainbow may seems easy, but it’s not! I spent quite a bit of time rolling out the string to equal thickness for each colour! As you can see, I still can seems to get them equal.

However, I do enjoy making this cake. Simple and nice.

Those who have been following me knows that I used to own a cafe. It’s close now. However, a year ago, the most popular cookies in my cafe was the Almond Cookies. Do you miss them?

I will be taking orders for these goodies again, however there will be a limited quantity as I have limited resources.

PM me for the price and orders now!

Frozen Theme

My 1st try on Frozen theme. The figurine was molded by me using fondant & gum paste and the cake was fresh cream cake. Simple design as I had limited time to prepare for it. Not perfect and not very fantastic but i think I am happy as I had learnt a new skill in the process of making. :)

Here’s the review for this huge log:
“Hi Vanessa, everyone likes your cake, my mother-in-law, even packed remainder for tomorrow breakfast. Thanks! Juliana”

The other special bake for this christmas will be this crepe cake. I decorated it to give it a little festive feel and had it for my Christmas gathering to replace the usual log cake.
