Put a cork in it...

This cake was for my cousin-in-law, Maddie, who just turned 18. I was given free reign on the design with the only real advice provided, Maddie isn't a girly girl. Hmmm, there goes the pink cake with a princess on top. I think I have been doing too many cakes for the under 5s!

After some thought, I came up with this idea...

It may be a little difficult to read the label, but the bottle is modeled after the Penfolds brand, but written as "Pikes" (her last name is Pike). The style of wine is "Madeleine" with a vintage of 1993. The message on the board was a little cheeky, but her Mum didn't mind.

The cake itself was dark chocolate mudcake with dark chocolate ganache. It was 13" x 4.5" x 4.5" high of chocolaty goodness. And to my non-alcoholic taste, it was a whole lot nicer than a glass of the red stuff.

Happy 18th Maddie!

Hooray for Hollywood...

A cake for Annika, who is celebrating her 13th birthday in Hollywood style...

The colour scheme requested was black, white, red and gold. And what screams Hollywood more than walking the red carpet.

And I couldn't help but style Annika's dress up a little with some frills...

The cake itself was a 7" egg-free chocolate cake with dark chocolate ganache.

Happy Birthday Annika!

Faster than lightening...

"They call him Flipper, Flipper..." Ok, so Sophie probably has no idea who Flipper is, but she likes dolphins. It seems 9 year old girls are less into TV characters, and more into straight animals (Hannah Montanna is soooo 8).

My daughter, Libby, said it looked like this cake had lots of blue rainbows all of it. Thanks for the constructive criticism there Darling Daughter.

Happy 9th birthday Sophie!


Many crowns for a princess...

Just a quick one. Some cute pink crown cookies for the gorgeous Abbie and her friends at Kindy.

Happy birthday Abbie!
