Hello Kitty cake for a 4 year old girl. The inside of the cake is chocolate cake with chocolate butter cream.
Made 2 cakes with designer stencils recently.
This double barrel cake was part of the gift entourage for a Malay wedding. The cake was first airbrushed with pink sheen and then stenciled with royal icing. I used Martha Stewart’s damask stencil set from Designer Stencils.
The second cake was for a birthday celebration. I decorated it with royal icing stencil using the lace set stencil from Designer Stencils too.
I am beginning to love using my airbrush to decorate my cakes. Firstly, it saves a lot of time and secondly, the effect created amazes me.
For this triathlon themed cake, I used my airbrush to spray gold sheen on the trophy and blue sheen on the cake. I just love how the white silhouette of the cyclist, runner and swimmer turned out on this blue cake.
I was asked by a friend to make black sesame biscotti and red bean biscotti to be served with ice cream in his Japanese restaurant.
After a few attempts, I managed to figure out how to blend the black sesame dough with the white dough. For those who knows how to make biscotti, you would know that biscotti dough is very soft and can be difficult to handle.
My attempt with red bean biscotti has not been that successful though. I tried using raw red beans, but the beans turned out to be harder than stone! When I used canned red beans in syrup, the biscotti turned out fine initially but would become soft after a few hours. This must be due to too much moisture. I’ll just have to figure out another way to make red bean biscotti to work.
These are my red bean biscotti. Aren’t they pretty? But then they became soft after a few hours Will just have to try again until I get it right!
I chanced upon this salted egg yolk cookie recipe on this blog messywitchen and decided to give it a try. I used butter instead of shortening. I found the cookies to be lacking in egg yolk flavour in my first attempt.
In my second try, I used 4 egg yolks and added salted egg white to the egg wash. The cookies tasted a lot more flavourful this time. I also tried mixing egg yolk with the egg wash but unfortunately they didn’t look that great.
These are the pretty ones which I like.
I was very fortunate to be able to attend Margie Carter’s Mystical Magical Unicorn cake class recently. Margie is from Margie Carter Cake World in Australia and she was also with Planet Cakes Australia prior to this.
Margie is a wonderful teacher and I enjoyed learning from her. Her attention to details is amazing and that explains how her cakes are so amazing and realistic I can’t think of another word other than ‘amazing’ to describe Margie. Check out her work at Margie Carter Cake World.
I still can’t believed that I actually turned this ordinary looking square cake into a unicorn cake!. The head is carved out of styrofoam to give it better support. I kind of over carved my styrofoam, hence my unicorn’s head was rather small and feminine looking
Here’s the completed unicorn cake after airbrushing and painted with edible gold paint.
I just love how realistic my unicorn’s eyes look!
Thank you Margie for a wonderful class.
