Soccer anyone?

Had a crazy last few weeks, where I had a deadline in my day job, plus this cake due at the same time! Also, with a set of 30 cupcakes, for a large birthday party. Tons of work, but got through it with no disasters. I hope they enjoy it! Time for a break!

Special thanks to the folks at Edible Images for the Spanish team logo!

Baby Shower cupcakes!

I won't lie to you, these toppers are totally inspired by/copied from a pin on my Pinterest board. Done by Lynlee's Petite Cakes, check out her work because she is a master at teeny tiny toppers!

I hope my toppers are somewhat comparable in cuteness levels.

Under Pressure

We artists put a lot of pressure on ourselves!
Take for instance, a gluten free cake for a boy's birthday, a boy who is only 3 years old but already knows what power tools are and how to use them.

Well I'd better make those power tools look as realistic as I possibly can! They'd better be a realistic size too!

C'mon they've got to be as real as possible! Just because I draw cartoons doesn't mean they have to look cartoony!

And that wood grain detail had better be perfect!!

*Sigh* Alas, the ego is never satisfied. But as long as the kids eating it are. It's cool. Really. I'll get over it... :P

Sketches to Final

For a while I've wanted to do a post showing my rough sketchs before the cake is done. I pretty much always do a sketch of some kind, just to have an idea of what I want. I'm not always the best at following it to a T, but I'm trying hard not to change things on the fly... I like being experimental and sometimes my ideas run away with me, lol. Here are a few examples!

Fit For a Princess Cake

When someone asks me to do a Disney Princess cake I can't say no!

As someone who works in animation and still has a secret lifelong dream of someday working on a Disney film, I really wanted to do something awesome.

I wanted to do a cake that somehow represented all of the princesses, without actually having to mold each one. So I decided to take something that represents each one and make that instead.

And well, I'm an animator, so instead of printing each princess image and sticking them on I thought I'd draw little sketches of them, and make them like vintage cameos.

And have them going all around the cake.  The birthday girl's favourite princess is Mulan, so I put her picture on top.

The cake itself is a victoria sponge with pink almond buttercream icing.


Here's a view of the top. Hopefully people can have fun guessing which thing belongs to which princess! ^_^
