These are our cookie designs for this year, we will also be listing Christmas themed macarons and cake pops shortly.
I’ve never quite seen the staying power of unicorns when it comes to unicorn cakes, cake pops and cookies. Pastels and flower embellishments seem to be the rage and the signature gold horn is a must. I must admit, I fall in love repeatedly with the pastel combination of pink, purple and blue.
The brief was the Mockingbird logo, flames and gold crusted flames cake pops. The first two were easy enough, but I’ll admit the gold crusted flames threw me for a bit. I came up with using gold crystal sugars amid sprinkled on after teasing the chocolate to mimic flames.
Wings, or anything that juts out, can be tricky on cake pops. If you join them to the main body, they will appear seamless but the shape will run once they are all coated in choc. If you attach say, a fondant piece to the main body, these become brittle and can snap. Aeroplanes with broken wings would not be a good look for a party! So these wings were carefully designed to be of the same colour and texture as the body, but to be tough enough to press on and not break.
These planes were made for Mont Blanc, in celebration of their Le Petit Prince classique ballpoint pen, on the Sydney Glass Island. Those who have read or seen the movie, would know why the red plane.
Any show that features kickass girl heroes gets my vote and when Cartoon Network called to get their famous girls in cake pops, I was eager to give it a go. Bubbles, Blossom and Buttercup are rather painstaking to do – the eyes are made layer upon layer, and the hair and pony tails all hand-shaped and applied in stages. The trick to them is really getting the eyes right, and this means the dimensions and proportion of each section. Trust me, I initially made the black circles a little bigger than they should be, and they looked wrong.
These celebrated the launch of Power Puff girls pajamas at Peter Alexander.
