I realized I haven't posted about my cakes in a while.  While I have been busy baking, I don't really take pictures anymore unless there are special decorations involved. Here are two of them.


I wish I could have done 3D figures.  That would have been challenging and really cool. But as I was only given a week's notice, 2D was the only way to go.  Lucky, I found a helpful tutorial here so the job became a lot easier.  I did change a few bits here and there.

See, I made the Hulk angry rather than cute and I gave Thor his long, blonde locks.

The cake was for a joint father and son birthday party.  The boy just turned 4 and barely had any idea who the Avengers were so I guess it was probably the dad who really wanted this cake...

There must be tons of Avengers-themed parties going around these days as these photos were viewed in my Flickr so many times in so short a time.  People were most likely searching for ideas. Who wouldn't want a theme like this anyway?


Just for the information of those who aren't Aussie, the Essendon Bombers is one of the most popular among the 18 Australian Rules Football teams.  We do live and breathe our footy over here, most especially in Victoria (where I am) so it's no surprise that someone would request a footy-themed cake.  If you were a star-struck 6-year old, you would certainly want to be portrayed wearing your hero's jersey and number, wouldn't you?

Making people figures has never been one of my strengths but I was quite happy with this cake topper.  And so was the boy's mom who was so excited when she saw the cake.

There is really nothing more gratifying than being told how you made a little child happy.  And of course, being told that you did a magnificent job too!  It makes all the hard work worthwhile and definitely gives you the inspiration for things yet to come.

I'm looking forward to making a Christening and also a simple wedding cake soon.  Can't wait.

Till next!


  1. Wow Corinne, you really outdid yourself with these two cakes! They are both just fabulous! Be sure to share pics of the christening and wedding cakes too!


  2. Thanks for sharing the photos of your wonderful cakes. I've missed seeing them. I can't wait to see the wedding and christening cakes.

  3. Hello. Found your blog via DIY bag lover. You have a really nice blog. Thanks for sharing patterns and tutorials.

  4. Hi, do you use cardboard at the center of your cake for your designs? or just a cut-out round fondant?

    1. Yes, there is a cardboard round covered with fondant. I do this so my decorations do not come directly in contact with the buttercream. Makes it also easier to take out when ready to slice the cake.
