My 1st 2-tiered Birthday Cake!!!

This was ordered by Ing Ay last weekend for her bro's 21st bday :) According to her, he likes dogs alot, so it was decided that the cake would be of a doggie theme!! I suggested to her that i will make 21 dogs to be place all around the cake to signify his age. Other than that, the doggies will be wearing party hats & will pose differently. It was for a party of 50 ppl! :D As a doggie lover, i searched the net and decided to make different breed of dogs, as many as i could handle :)

And only a few days before the delivery date, i was told that the cake will be travelling back to Port Dickson for the party O_0 At that moment i was kinda worried the cake may topple of some of the deco may get destroyed in the journey... But, it's another achievement cos this is the furthest my creation has travelled so far & nothing happened to the cake thank goodness.. hehe

I made the cake in a bright yellow colour for a more cheerful overall look and so that the dogs will stand out :)

The cake, i love the colours!! :) Can u spot the different breeds of dogs??

The schnauzer on top with a hat pointing at the number 21 :D love this dog the best!!

The complementing cupcakes :)

The breed of dogs on the cakes were JRT, west highland terrier, min pin, dashound, huskie, poodle, schnauzer, dalmation! :) hehehe

I have never kneaded so much icing in my life... a total of 2.5kgs of fondant..... to turn white fondant into bright yellow wasnt easy.. lol

The bottom was a 10 inch round sugee almond with bailey's cake while the 6 inch was a chocolate cake with choc forsting. I finished the cakes at 6am on the day of the delivery. Nevertheless, im very happy with how it turned out :) Hope the bday boy liked it was well.

Center Stage Cake

Another quite last min cake! lol Im not complaining! I am happy that my business is slowly picking up :) sometimes it can really get out of hand, but i will somehow manage to pull through.

This cake was ordered by Chloe, for her cousin sis's birthday. She was very specific with wat she wanted, a cake which is a stage, with a girl, holding a throphy with a sash. & she also wanted 2 hand painted logos. The Allianz logo together with the MDRT logo.

The birthday girl works for Allianz, & i think she's one of the winners for the MDRT (Million Dollar Round Table) award, so Chloe wanted the cake to signify that :)

The dark burgundy swags were dusted with lustre powder for a more glam look ;)

Chloe collected the cake in the morning, and called me back after 20 minutes telling me the birthday girl loves the cake alot, and the figure kinda looks like her lol they had a good laugh :)

Of Roses & Bears

This cake was done quite long ago, a very last min order by my cousin, managed to squeeze in his order -_- Was very rushing & hectic, but heck, i love decorating :P He didn't say much about the person who's receiving the cake, & he just wanted something sweet & cute since it was for a girl. A banana cake with coffee buttercream under the deco. I actually wanted to do roses & some simple design for this cake, but cakes done by me wont be complete without any figure modeling! So i made 2 bears, and a present :)

simple, sweet & cute!

i used 2 shades of pink for the simple roses around the cake :)

The bears :)
