Vegan Lego Cake (2 Tiers)

I don’t know about you, but I have always loved to play with Legos. First when I was younger and then later when I was older with my little brother. In fact, that was the theme of my brother’s 6th birthday cake I made for him last year.

I was so ecstatic when I got a cake order for making a Lego themed cake for a friend of my brother’s.

Frozen Themed Elsa Cake

Here’s a cake that will cool you off this summer….

This cake is based on the character from the Disney movie that brought the song that is on every radio station these days.  Yup, you guessed it, the ever so popular song is “Let It Go” from Disney’s FROZEN!

This movie was so lovely and adorable that I just couldn’t stop thinking of ways to turn this movie into a cake. When my mom’s co-worker requested a Frozen themed cake for her daughter’s birthday, I was ecstatic! Continue reading

Graduation Day Cake Pops

Congratulations to all those who are graduating! I myself do not graduate from junior high until next year, but I made these cake pops anyway for our neighbors’ college graduation party.

I found this cute idea on this blog and decided to try it out.

If you haven’t figured it out already, these cake pops are supposed to look like little blue graduation day hats.

For the bottom portion of these cake pops, I used cupcake shaped chocolate molds and I filled the mold with blue candy melts and a cake ball in the center. Then I placed a lollipop stick into the center of the cake ball and I let it harden in the freezer. For directions on how to make cake balls, please look below.

Then for the top part of the hat, I didn’t find any square chocolate molds, so instead I improvised. I placed a square cookie cutter on top of a parchment lined tray and I filled the cutter with the blue candy melts. Then I placed the tray into the freezer until the chocolate hardened. I took the tray out and when I picked the cutter up, the chocolate easily slipped out.

For decorations, I used a mini yellow M&M and I used an Air Heads Extremes candy for the yellow tail of the hat.

Our neighbors really enjoyed them and I hope you do too!

Game Wheel Cake

A couple of weeks ago I made a cake for a surprise birthday party for my dad’s friend’s 40th birthday party! This cake was a really fun cake to make and the end result got many smiles at the party. I was asked to make the cake that looked like a game wheel with a spinner, so after some research, I finalized my cake design.

This cake took me awhile to make and I faced some challenges with fondant. I decided to go with a white and blue color theme with a bit of brown.

I figured out how to get the spinner to really spin and everyone was spinning it to see what they got! The wheel and border decorations were all made with fondant.

I also dusted the top of the cake with lots of silver dust (maybe a little too much :/)

This cake was a 4 layer red velvet cake with a cream cheese icing for the filling. All the adults and the kids at the party really liked how the cake looked and tasted and I got lots of encouraging comments and compliments.

I also have YouTube tutorials on how to make red velvet cake and cream cheese icing up on my tutorials page!

Cookie Monster Cake

Last Thursday, on the Thanksgiving day, it was my brother’s 6th birthday. I decided to surprise him with  every kids’ favorite character: The Cookie monster! Making this cake was really fun and super easy. I did not use any fondant; only icing, a marshmallow, and a yummy chocolate chip cookie of course! All I did to make this cake was pipe on royal blue icing with a #21 star tip on the sides and top of the cake. I also left some space on the top of the cake for the mouth. For the mouth, I used black chocolate icing and just spread the icing where I wanted the mouth to be. For the eyes, I took one normal sized marshmallow and cut it in half. I placed each half of marshmallow on the cake and used two brown M&Ms as the pupils. Then I used a mini chocolate chip cookie and stuck it into the mouth with a trail of cookie crumbs.

My brother really enjoyed eating this cake and so did our thanksgiving guests!
