LEGO cake

hi there!!! how I missed blogging here! It has been really looooong since I last posted. I am still baking and decorating, the usual stuff, nothing to fancy yet not too shabby..heheh..been working on a few projects here n there..the kids are growing, 2 toddlers in the house ~ means hand are full, schedules are tight, lots of stuff to do and learn πŸ˜‰

here’s a LEGO inspired cake complete with a lego man stick. this is the usual rainbow cake, with all 6 colourful layers in it πŸ˜‰



have u guys watched the LEGO Movie? we have and I just loved it! “everything is awesome!” <– can’t get this tune out of my head for weeks…LOL

Pink Ombre

I’ve planned on doing ombre cakes for a long time but as usual haven’t got a chance to do so..this time when I got a request from cute Ras on making a mini rainbow cake, I requested to make her a pink ombre cake instead πŸ˜‰ luckily she says yes and here we have my very first pink ombre cakeΒ 

and Ras being a dear, shared the photos of the cut cake with me πŸ˜€ (which I really appreciate a lot! )

initially I planned on naming the cake Rainbow Uno, but the cake is better known as ombre cakes…but guess what, maybe I WILL call this cake Rainbow Uno, as rainbow cakes are what we do best πŸ˜‰

Thinking of some variations of colors for the Rainbow Uno series ~ and this one is “Pretty in Pink”

Cake Project: Jersey Cake ~ SPAIN

I made two spain jersey cakes in one day..guess there’s a lot of spain fans out there..especially when they won euro 2012 πŸ˜€ Β just moist chocolate cake with buttercream and edible images for the logos (I just know I cannot endure drawing the logo :p LOL)

Since I made two cakes at one go, I baked 3 batches of chocolate cakes, 2 in a 13×19 pan and 1 in an 8×8 pan. Split the cake in the 13×9 pan in two to make the ‘body’ and cut out some from the 8×8 pan for the sleeves and ‘glued’ them together with buttercream πŸ™‚

decorate em..and’s my version of Spain’s Jersey Cake πŸ˜‰

Rainbow Cake Baking: Done!

Done baking the rainbow cakes – one regular sized and one small πŸ™‚

I always stack them before sandwiching and decorating, and a parchment paper between every layer helps – not only it keeps the cakesΒ separated (and the color too), it also peels off the excess top layer of each cake, so you’d have a smooth surface of each cake – no need to level your (thin and harder to doΒ leveling :D) cakes! handy eh? πŸ˜‰

Early Morning Baking

Woke up early this morning to bake some cupcakes for hubby to bring to his office today πŸ™‚ they’re having a potluck πŸ˜€ I miss potlucks!! 😦

baked 16 pcs of choc cuppies, topped with vanilla buttercream n sprinkled some chocolate rice on top…yummy! (too bad the cupcakes sunk after cooling :(..*wonders what went wrong* 😐

why 16 pieces? well, only 16 could fit in theΒ Tupperware! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€


Rainbow Cake byproduct of the day: Bread Pudding

Finished baking another rainbow cake, and the byproduct of today is: Bread Pudding! πŸ˜€

I’m having this for lunch πŸ˜‰ It’s fresh from the oven, can’t wait for it to cool off a bit so that I could EAT it! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

when making rainbow cakes, I only used the egg whites, so I’m left with egg yolks to work on..usually it ends up being another meal for the family – we call it our “rainbow cake byproduct of the day” πŸ˜‰ most common meal I’d make is French Toast for tea (this is when laziness creeps in..LOL :D)

Angry Bird cake – the whole gang!

made this cake a while ago, but haven’t got the time to post it here πŸ˜‰

the big cake in the middle is 2kilos, and the smaller birds are cupcakes – all cakes are strawberry flavoured em! πŸ˜€ I didn’t have any special dome cake pan, so I just used my round pans and carved the head of the red bird πŸ˜‰ all birds were carved and covered with buttercream, the red butter cream however is strawberry flavoured too (my customer really loves strawberries :D) and yeah, I sandwiched the cake layers with strawberry jam..this is one STRAWBERRYLICIOUS cake! πŸ˜€ I’ve posted the strawberry cake recipe earlier, really simple to try πŸ˜‰

for the big cake / the red bird I used the piping technique to cover the cake (usually I just smooth my buttercream on the cake, but it doesn’t hurt to try something new ;), Β the smaller cakes – 5 of them all together: blue bird, white bird, black bird, yellow bird and green bird are also covered in butter cream (just vanilla flavoured) πŸ˜‰ all the birds’ beaks are done with candy stripes cut to desired shape πŸ™‚

I had great fun making this cake πŸ˜‰ the customer, Nur from Pekan also loves the cake πŸ™‚ YAY!

funny thing: after crumb coating the big red bird, my son have a peek and was angry at me, saying I should make a bird, not “oink oink”…haha πŸ˜€

a happy family of angry birds πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

a friend commented that my angry bird doesn’t look angry enough, and it looks “manja” (sweet)..I agree πŸ˜€ well, it IS for a birthday after all, so we would want happiness and cheerfulness, not ‘angriness’, rite πŸ˜‰ hehehe πŸ˜€

Cheesecake + choc cake

inspired by the Crumb Boss‘s Red Velvet Cheese Cake, I made this chocolate cake + cheesecake = Chocolate Cheese Cake πŸ™‚

it has two layers:

+ bottom layer: moist chocolate cake

+ top layer: vanilla cheese cake with choc cake crumbs

and I covered the whole cake with butter cream πŸ™‚

I sure hope Habsah from Cherating likes the cake she ordered, and a happy birthday to her sweet daughter Humaira πŸ˜‰ thanks for ordering πŸ™‚

experimenting piping patterns on the sides πŸ˜‰
