Like I said last week, here’s a nursery rhyme inspired cake! And yes, the baby is hanging on a tree ❤
When my client requested for a nursery rhyme cake, the first thing that came into my mind was a cow jumping over a moon. But then, she wanted specifically, Rock-a-bye, baby theme, and I LOVE that she said she wanted something for a baby girl, but not pink!
So there, no pink, but I tried to make it as girly as I possibly could. Well, I guess without pink, I had to focus on making it adorable 😀
And yes, I couldn’t stop at a baby on a cradle, so to add more life, I put these curious little critters to entertain the little baby! After all, it’s kinda boring when you’re hanging up on a tree.
So there 😀 This, I think stands as one of my favourites because it’s so simple ❤
Next week, I think we’ll rest from tree cakes. I’m still thinking of what to post, but I have a feeling, Imma choose something bippity boppity boo. 😀
’til next week!
Let me start by being frank. The next few cakes you will see will probably have a tree on it. It’s been something I’ve been so fondly practicing, and by for some reason, I’ve been blessed by cakes wherein I can incorporate them! Haha.
So here’s a Vintage Winnie the Pooh inspired cake set that I did. I personally don’t like doing character cakes because it somewhat limits the imagination, and though we get to put our own twists in the characters, it’s easier to get disappointed. But not this cake! When we first received this inquiry, I was a bit worried because I knew I had to stray from the usual shapes, but was excited because the colour palette was beautiful, don’t you agree?
One of the most difficult things to do when doing characters is making them come alive.
Piglet and Winnie the Pooh
And fortunately, I found an old Winnie the Pooh poetry book in Booksale which I already put in our decorating studio mini library. It had what my cake needed, but what I realised though, Tigger wasn’t in it! So I had to research and find a way to put him there simply because my client requested for it! I researched for the vintage Tigger, but saw that he wasn’t cute enough, hehe, so I just recreated a more modern one hoping it wouldn’t stand out too much!
So anyway, the cake design, we simply cascaded to the cookies and cupcakes 😀 Amazing what a couple of flowers can do for a cupcake!
So that’s it for this week! Next week, I’ll probably post another cake with a tree, inspired by a nursery rhyme!! Yay 😀
Can’t believe I forgot to post something last Friday, so here’s something to catch up to what I missed 😀
This chic mermaid-inspired set was again for Dreamscapes by Jac Lee Hao! I really loved how bolder colours were used instead of pastel colours usually requested for little girls. 😀
Diana, my client, requested the sea urchin to be on the cake, and since the theme is still mermaid-inspired, we did scales for the bottom tier 🙂
And what would be under the sea be without the colourful starfishies slowly crawling all over the sand?
And perhaps mermaid tails peeping above the water? 🙂
Well, this is certainly a unique concept for Valentines. As much as I’d like to post lovey dovey hearts for Valentines, I’d have to stick to this set! After all, we’re always after originality! 😀
And if you’re wondering what inspired this cake, watch this:
I get a lot of Safari cake inquiries, AND I LOVE IT! 🙂
Obviously, I really love making animals. This is just another variation of our safari cake! I wanted to do something more extreme than the previous ones, so what the heck, I put a cheeky, vine-swinging monkey!
Hope you enjoy this as much I enjoyed making it 😀
