It was my friend's birthday, and she -just like me - looooves burgers. So yours truly decided to take up the challenge and make her a burger cake. 

It was surprisingly easier and much more fun that I thought it would be. 

Ok, let's go back to the point.
I made two types of cakes: Yellow and Chocolate Cake.

It was really hard to find a 'bun' shaped baking pan. Mom helped me improvise :P but it turned out good in the end.

This special cupcake is for my old physics teacher. He loves making honey and actually has a bee hive that produces honey and all that (very cool stuff :P ) So yes, i made him a bee cupcake :P

It's actually a chocolate cupcake with a marshmallow fondant bee figure on top!

I know i know, bees are black and yellow, but I didn't have any yellow fondant tonight =( I'm going to have to make some tomorrow =D I just had to make/show you this.

Here it is:

Mini Rose Cupcake

This is a mini-post! Just thought its too cute not to share!

I just learnt this new fondant rose technique. So I thought I'd share. Something that good shouldn't be kept to oneself =D

I was baking my cupcakes for the Christmas baking marathon i got planned. But this was just too tempting not to try!

Ok, so 4 simple steps:

1) Take a small ball from your pre-colored fondant. (I use marshmallow fondant, I really should make a tutorial post about this awesome fondant, yalla SOON =) )

2) Roll out the ball into a thick rolled strip.

3) Flatten the strip using your rolling pin/hand.

4) Starting at one end of the strip, roll the fondant till you reach the end of the strip.

This is what you should get:

Oh NO! Pacdroid eats Apple...Cake!

This is a very special post about a very special cake! A friend of mine asked me to make her boyfriend a cake for his birthday.

Now, beware iPhone-lovers, this is not a cake you would like. (Don't get me wrong, the chocolate cake is yummy :P but its design is not so iPhone-friendly).

The idea behind the cake:
Pacdroid eating Apple-s

and yes you thought right, pacdroid is a combination of Android and our childhood game Pacman (That was such an awesome game, no?)

Well anyway, this cake was very fun to make, especially since I had a midterm that week but it helped me take my mind off it =D

The base was pretty simple to make, I made one circular cake and one large rectangular cake. Then I cut the shapes I needed and frosted the cakes. After that I colored my fondant and covered the cakes with it.

Aren't the apples so darn cute? Once I put the eyes I said: AWWWWWWWWW aint that cute!!!

The phone was the most challenging part. I cut out the outline from black fondant and left a 'window' for the blue fondant. Then I used my sugar pens to draw the apps and the writings.

Hope you like it =)

Happy Cake-ing

Arsenal Tshirt Cake

A very dear friend of mine is obsessed with football and everything Arsenal. AND it was his birthday this September, so your cake freak (aka ME!) rolled up her sleeves and got out her marshmallows and red food coloring...lots and lots of red food coloring and got down to business.

This was one of the most challenging cakes I had to do, color-wise. I did not have my Wilton Colors yet =( and had to do with the cheap liquid USE-LESS brands. I emtpied the entire bottle to reach the beautiful bright red I wanted. But turned out awesome-ly bright NO? =D

It was fairly easy to cut out the shape of tshirt, I just printed out a tshirt outline and traced out the cake. For the Fly Emirates and all the writing on the cake, I used melted white chocolate and piped it over the cake.
Logo and Details =D The one's I'm so proud of!

The logo was challenging to make. I made the base from red fondant and drew the details with some colored buttercream. Close enough, no?

I made some extra red fondant and placed them on the cake for the collar/sleeves.

Now for the finishing touches: I had to write Happy Birthday someplace, right? and I didn't want to ruin the tshirt and write on it SO i cut out a loooong strip from the leftover red fondant and rolled u its ends. Then I grabbed the ends and pulled them out in order to make it look like a banner. Then I wrote Happy Birthday with some white chocolate!

What do you think? Regardless of whether you like Arsenal or not :P

Oh and congratulations Arsenal on winning 4-0 against Wigan Athletic in the English Premier League today =D

(haha, gottcha!! You really thought I'd actually know anything football-related? :P My sister Lana is a football freak (in a good way :P) and she suggested I should mention this! (Thank you Lana!)
