Splish, splash - it's a cake

Friday, February 19, 2010

Been a bit of a busy week, So much so that I've managed to procrastinate again with my letter S post for EOWTTA. Ah well.

How about we look at some cake instead? I do apologise for the quality of the photos, I did all of the photos very, very quickly and in terrible light, but hopefully you can make out enough detail.

 


The mermaid cake was for a little friend who was having a pool party and the other cakes were for a joint birthday celebration. Each child had something they liked as a topper - kittycats, ballet tutu etc.

 


I had so much fun making mermaids, I wish I had a job just making fairytale cakes all day...




Have a great weekend and I'll see if I can scrounge up letter S soon.

Thanks 3T

Oh Hungry Dog - I really wish I could, I'd love to. We could collaborate long distance though - I'll send you tips and tricks :)

Ha ha thanks Grace - I was very proud of my pearl

Thanks Trissa, very kind. I don't know about my own shop but if Planet Cake offered me an apprenticeship I'd be there in a flash(*ahem* hoping Planet Cake people read this ;P)

Thanks Love! Hope you're enjoying your weekend too.

Wow, Shaz these cakes are awesome! So, you made a cake for each girl going to the party. That beats a party bag any day. Fantastic work!

Cristie said...

What darling cakes! I love how each cake is individulized.

shaz said...

Thanks Pierre :)

Thanks Marcellina - it wasn't actually a replacement for party bag, it was a joint birthday party (they all had birthdays around the same time, give or take a month). But I have done the cake giveaway before, for my youngest's first birthday everyone took home cupcakes and biscuits instead of lollies.

Thanks Christie - I really enjoyed making each one "fit" the recipient
