Royal Icing Flowers

I also tried these Chrysanthemums,Apple blossoms,Primrose ,Violets & Daffodils.Making the other flowers were a lot more easier than making the Chrysanthemums.The Bird is made using Color Flow Technique.

Pansies made of Royal Icing

It happens to be my first attempt at making flowers out of Royal Icing.I tried these on my own & I'm pretty pleased with the result. Initially I was too intimidated by Royal icing, but I've realized that as long as you get the right consistency & angle the piping bag in the right position it works great, also its less messier than Butter Cream Icing. I guess I'll try more of these soon .

Baby Shower Cake Toppers

These are the toppers I used on my baby shower cake.I had fun doing the detailing on the bassinet & all of the other accessories.

Baby Shower Cushion Cake

This was a practise Baby Shower Cake. I carved a cushion out of a Devil's Food cake covered with Marshmallow fondant (MMF) & gave it a quilted effect .I made the Cake toppers well in advance. This was the first time I used Gumpaste.The bassinet was made out of Gumpaste & all of the other stuff on the cake is made of Fondant. I enjoyed making all of the stuff , the buttons, the baby bottle,baby bootie,the bib,heart shaped pillow , rattle & the Baby bassinet.

3D Red convertible Car cake

I made this cake especially for my Hubby.He wanted me to try my hands at cake carving.I had this tiny Red car at home & I tried to replicate it into a cake.I had fun doing the interiors of the car.The car seats & all accessories within the car are self made . I finally added a cool tag at the rear end of the car which gave it a Kool look.Later I realized maybe I shud have pushed the tyres a little inside coz they were almost out.But anyways there's always a next time ;-)

Homemade MMF Fondant 2 Tier Rose Cake

This was a cake I made for my 2nd Marriage Anniversary as a Gift for my Husband .It was the first time I tried making Marshmallow Fondant.I made almost 40 Fondant roses (small, medium & large) in advance & enjoyed every moment of it. I also tried using the ribbon technique which I happened to see in a Cake decorating book at a bookstore (at Borders) . I loved the way the cake finally turned out.I also added a Fondant lace frill to the edges which made it look elegant.The Roses are made of Rolled fondant with Gumtex added to it.

Gift Box Cake

This cake was my first Fondant Cake .It was shaped as a Gift Box.It was a task to get the corners smooth but it was kinda satisfactory.I tried making the bow for the first time.Maybe I shud have let it dry for a day so that they wud remain stiff ,as they sank after a while.But I learned a lot on how to handle fondant with this cake, which helped me in my future cakes.

Chocolate Ganache Cake coated with walnuts

I made this cake as a Birthday Gift for a family friend. They love Chocolate & so I decided on making a chocolate cake with Choco Ganache filling & coated the sides with crushed walnuts. It was made at a very short notice which is y I didn't have much time to decorate it as expected.Though the cake turned out very delicious.

Pineapple Buttercream Princess Peach Cake

This was the first time I made a cake this big.It was for a common friend's daughter's First Birthday.It was a Pineapple flavoured cake with Pineapple filling.I was glad that the image of Princess Peach came out Perfect in spite of it being done freehand, & everyone loved the pastel colors.I was glad it looked presentable.

Chocolate Ganache Cake with Butter Cream Roses

I tried making chocolate Ganache watching a Youtube Video & it turned out yummy!!! I decorated this Devil's Food cake with Chocolate Butter Cream filling & iced it with Chocolate Ganache made of Hershey's Dark Chocolate .This was the first time I tried making the BC Roses....which is why they resemble a cabbage ;-)
