The proper order should be the other way around, don't you think???? Funny.
This was actually the order in which the occasions for my cakes happened within the last 10 days. The cakes were for different people of course!
YOSHI-THEMED BIRTHDAY CAKE
This cake was for my son's friend. It was sort of a rush job but I couldn't say no because the boy seemed so excited about it. I stared at Yoshi pictures for hours and hours, not knowing how to begin. Then at 11pm, while waiting for my older son to come home from work, I decided to sit down and make an attempt. I finished it an hour later and was just amazed at how I miraculously managed to do it!
I know it looks quite simple but the pressure point here (at least for me) was the head. Look at how big that nose is!
I made baby booties at first then trashed it. And I'm happy that I did because I reckon the whole thing turned out much better.
The angel tutorial can be found here - Part I, Part II and Part III. It is very easy to do and the resulting angel is very cute, complete with beaded halo. I used a butterfly cutter for the wings instead of a template. As for the baby, I totally just winged it. Simple but adorable, yeah?
BABY SHOWER CAKE
Anyway, I was invited to a baby shower today but unfortunately, was not able to make it because of another commitment. As much as I wanted to sew something, I couldn't as I was also busy throughout the week. I promised the mom to-be that I'd make a cake for her though, so that I did.
Again, the teddy bear is quite simple to do. Something anyone can finish in one sitting.
Thank goodness my friend requested for a single-tiered wedding cake for her cousin. Wedding cakes are just not my kind of thing. They are daunting.
The wedding colour was purple, so naturally, the bride and groom wanted a purple yam (ube) cake. I was very happy with how this cake turned out. It is not elaborate as most wedding cakes are, but I really think keeping things simple is the right way to go.
So that's about everything for now. Next weekend, my husband is a wedding sponsor and you know what? As his present to the bride and groom, he offered to provide the wedding cake/cupcakes. Guess who's going to do all the hard labour? Sigh.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
