Curious George Cake

My next cake was for a 1st Birthday party and was to be in the design of Curious George. The yellow and red colours go very well together and make for an eye-catching cake.

I changed the name on the side of the cake to suit the Birthday boy - Bobby. This was a nice way of personalising the cake whilst still keeping the theme of the cake.

The party hat was made from a strip of regal icing cut into a triangle and then painted with green and purple. I think it turned out well and is quite effective, not to mention much easier than cutting out strips of green and purple icing!

New York Wedding

I was asked to make a Wedding cake for a sister of one of my good friends. As a couple they love New York and decided to spend their big day over there with close family and friends. As a result they decided to have a party back in England for those that could not make it to America. They chose a New York theme including an American Police car.

They chose to use the unmistakable logo on their cupcakes and have the variation that was used on their invites with both their names on it for the cake.

This was a simple but effective design which really stands out when you see all the cupcakes together! They chose a mix of chocolate and vanilla flavours for the cupcakes with vanilla sponge and raspberry jam for the cake.

I enjoyed making these cakes, not just because it was for a friend but because it was fun to do. I haven't done many cupcakes over the years but I would certainly love to do something like this again.
