A friend of mine requested that I make a cake and some cuppies for her little girl's birthday. She specifically wanted a tri-coloured kitten with blue eyes.
The cake and cuppies are American chocolate cake, a favourite for kids. The cuppies were frosted with large fresh cream swirls and topped with sprinkles and gumpaste daisies. I do enjoy doing cuppies, they're more fun and stress free compared to cakes.
Anyway, the cake was filled and crumb coated with a chocolate buttercream before being covered in fondant. I made the kitty and ball of wool ahead of time using gumpaste. They were placed on the cake on the day of the party.
I absolutely love food and I adore all things beautiful! So what else could possibly surpass gorgeously decorated cakes, cookies, pastries and such? They're beautiful, and even better, they're edible! Therefore, I have decided to teach myself baking and cake decorating and I shall document my attempts on this, my humble blog. Wish me luck!
