TRP Cake Studio | Cake Set |Vintage Winnie the Pooh

Let me start by being frank. The next few cakes Β 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. ItΒ 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 πŸ˜€ 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 πŸ˜€

Love,

TRP Cake Studio | Cake Sets | Mermaid Chic

Can’t believe I forgot to post something last Friday, so here’s something to catch up to what I missed πŸ˜€

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. πŸ˜€

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 πŸ™‚

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? πŸ™‚

The Royal Piccadilly | Birthday Cake Set | Vrent’s Big Greek Birthday

How about another Dreamscapes cake? πŸ˜€

What I had to work with?

The Mood Board

I have to admit, it was a real challenge thinking how I was going to make this cake as vibrant as my other cakes, but it was refreshing to be working with a limited colour palette of white and blue. I had to infuse other colours to make it come alive, but yeah, I think that it turned pretty Greeky!

Greek Cake

When Jac forwarded me her moodboard, one thing popped into my mind- The Parthenon Frieze! Ironically, you won’t find it in Greece, but in the British Museum (to my advantage!) πŸ˜€ Allegedly, the British stole these goodies, but like I said, allegedly. On the walls of the museum, they said they were gifts from Greece. Hehe.

I loved looking through these walls because they told stories of life in the past, from parties, to simple day-to-day living activities. War stories, boring. Men drinking, drunk all over the floor- HILARIOUS! πŸ˜€

Whut, Balloons?!

How about the wise men of the greek world?!

Nutella Raspberry ❀

And Zeus’ thunder bolts!

Wutcho problem, Zues-man?

Zues πŸ™‚

Thunder in the clouds πŸ˜€

Sugar cookies πŸ™‚

So there, sorry for such a long post! But I remembered these photos, and yeah! That museum was awesome πŸ˜€ Hehe

Good Things like Easter and First Posts

Happy Easter, Piccadilly friends!

We love Easter (I’ve actually written about it before in my blog quite passionately) and as far as I can remember, this is the first time in a couple of years that we’re all in the same country—let alone the same continent even, to celebrate it.

Even though holidays are so rare for us cake-makers, we spent the entire Saturday baking Carrot Cupcakes (A TRP specialty!), bunny cookies, and Red Velvet Cakepops. While everything was baking, cooling or drying, we were stuffing plastic eggs with goodies, and cutting up flower straws for our ball jars for that extra Spring-feeling. Our mom even bought Wilton’s adorable Easter baking cups and stands for the occasion, and we couldn’t help but make everything extra-pretty for Sunday! (If you follow me on instagram, you’d know since I’ve been spamming everyone with Easter preparation photos)

Anyway, it was a great Sunday! We hid the eggs, and had our cousins find them, we had a pretty dessert bar, and our dad cooked up an awesome dinner spread. Of course we love Easter for more than its adorable bunnies and chicks, but for what it truly means. We felt very blessed to have had such a wonderful and blessed Sunday.

We thought it would be the perfect first post for our new blog, considering Easter’s all about birth and all that good stuff. We can’t wait to tell you about all our exciting projects and show you all our photos from our shoots. Like, share, and/or heart us. Comment or ask questions—-we’d love to hear what you think! We’re more than just Cake-Makers, we’re storytellers, and we’d also love to hear your TRP stories, so send them over!

Hope to hear from you guys soon!

Til our next post,
Lisane
