Ninja cake pops and cookies

Ninja cake pops

Ninja cake pops

One of the first character cake pops I did was Ninjago cake pops. My eldest was a big Ninjago fan then, and it was the craze around school. Strangely enough, I’ve never done a traditional ninja till now, a good 6 years later. I decided to do the ninja as a pure cake pop, sans fondant.

Ninja ‘stars’ aka shuriken cookies were also requested. These were hand-piped, then painted with edible silver paint.

Mario and Luigi cake pops at Playtime Chatswood

A brand new Playtime at Chatswood Westfield celebrated its opening by having a special VIP night. Stormtroopers were striding around and playing table hockey – it was very cool, I tell you.

It was also uber cool *ahem* because they served Mario and Luigi and Mushrooms and Star cake pops.

We made a lot. You’d be surprised how long it takes. I was surprised how long it takes.

Unicorn cookies and cake pops

Pastel unicorn cake pops

If you have seen those endless pictures of tall double-barrel unicorn cakes with the golden horn and black lashes, I’ve finally made the cake pop version.

The client ordered unicorn cake pops, cookies and cupcakes all in the same matching pastel theme.

Construction cake pops and cookies

This theme appears very popular – Bob the Builder must be still going strong! It isn’t the first time I’ve done these safety hat and safety cone cake pops.

I send off hammer cookies in fear though. Any cookie with a narrow long stem is at risk of breakage. Flamingos are another notoriously fragile one when their long necks are. Although every cookie is at risk of breakage during transport, I find it personally affronting when any of my products fail to arrive in the condition they were sent off in!

To reduce the risk, I suggested reducing the amount of hammers in the mix, and I also sent off a few extra hammers. She reported only one broke, so that happily means all cookies were accounted for!

Kakamora cake pops from Moana

When someone called up and said they wanted the coconuts from Moana, I was like, “Huh?” I loved Moana, I thought it was one of the best animations I’d seen in a while. But of the life of me, I could not recall any coconuts. After the client showed me a picture, still nothing rang a bell!

My memory must be going because apparently these coconut pirates are really popular.

Dr Seuss cookies and cake pops

Dr Seuss Cat in the Hat cookies and cake pops

Dr Seuss Cat in the Hat cookies and cake pops

Oh, how I loved making this set! I am a huge fan of Dr Seuss. Okay, maybe I got a bit tired of the Sleep Book after reading it zillions of times to my kids and secretly wished the book would disappear for a bit (hey, that is one loooong bedtime book!) but he is still very close to my heart. The backdrops to the cookie and cake pops are well-worn books pulled from my library.

The challenge here was making them look ‘drawn’, just like on the book covers. Also, because there are no Cat in the Hat shaped cookie cutters in the market, the cookies had to be hand-cut.

Rainbow unicorn cookies and cake pops

 Rainbow Unicorn cake pops

I love rainbows, they are so unique and speak of the promise of brighter things around the corner.  The challenging thing about the rainbow theme to produce, is the number of colours involved. Whipping up 6-7 colours of anything (in 6-7 bags, bowls, piping tips)  is rather time-consuming. But as an added bonus, colours make your feel happy, they really do! When I make a rainbow theme, I’m smiling from end to end when the whole set is done because the colours just brighten up my day!

These were made for the beautiful Nicole O’Neil, of the Real Housewives of Sydney, for her daughter Neve’s birthday party.

Troll cake pops

 

My son asked me, “Is that hair fondant, or is it cake underneath?”

I’m a bit of a purist where cake pops are concerned. Firstly, I don’t like eating fondant, or at least too much of it. Secondly,it’s not a cake pop if half the thing is fondant. So yes, it’s cake underneath the hair.

These took me practically the whole day to make. Characters are incredibly time consuming to make if you want to make them right, and I’m a tad OCD! I got a bit hug from the client for my efforts though! She was so excited to see them!

SK-II cookies

The beauty of anything custom-made is that you can have it your way. Sometimes, I have to remind clients that they can change the colour, the shape, it’s made to order anyway.

These cookies were made to fit the SK-II bottles.

And then there was a reprise for the launch of these beautiful edition bottles.

So I love a challenge, and here I was given the signature lips by the Kiss Goodbye to MS campaign. I think we matched it to a T, don’t you?
