This cake was ordered for 1 year old Ethan.

It was a challenge to make Thomas(the shape and the details on the carriage). Enerything on the cake is made from edible materials except for the candle.  I wanted to include Thomas’s friends as well, Percy and James, both emerging from tunnels.

Blue skies, rolling green fields ,cow,birds ,railroad crossing sign and railway tracks complete the English countryside.

Coincidentally the birthday girl is also called Emma. Mummy requested for my previous cake, Emma’s Garden but with a few additional details. Added a playful giraffe to keep the birthday girl company, a cupcake candle holder,additional sunflower and birds to complete the look. Mummy Jaime provided me with the Precious Moment figurine and candle. Everything else is handmade fron edible flowerpaste.

“Come ride the carousel with me, enjoy yourself, smile ,giggle with glee. Miniature brass band, music playing, up and down motion gently swaying……..Spinning faster enjoying the ride, let out a laugh with your heart open wide. Around and around, up and down. Everyone smiling , no room for a frown.”~Karen Palumbo

A carousel just conjures up images of childhood and laughter filled carefree days. So what better cake to celebrate a birthday with then with a carousel cake.( Tent top and carousel base are both made out of cake.)

Happy Birthday Xuann!

Dione’s Castle September 6, 2010

Made this cake for a very nice lady whose daughter was turning one. The cake was to have a Princess theme and she provided me with the figurine.
Castle turrets and horse with long lashes were made a couple of days in advance to allow them to dry. They were then painted with an edible pearl lustre so as to match the figurine better. Castle doors were also given a woodgrain effect .
I now present you with Dione’s Castle .
