Cupcake decorating parties for birthdays

Children's birthday party ideas

I read a quote today, that said creativity requires courage. Well, children have lots of courage. They are fearless and intense when creating, and that’s what I love about seeing kids decorate. They also aren’t afraid to go to new places – for the party, I had put up some sample images of what they could achieve with what they have, but no one copied what was on the board.

This one reminded me of a Degas watercolour painting.

Unicorn cakes

custom cakes Hornsby

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.

I’ve made loads of unicorn cake pops and unicorn cookies, but this one popped my “unicorn cake” cherry. The client also ordered unicorn image biscuits along with them, and I took joy in finding the perfect image and adding a little detail to create more depth to the cookie.

The mum sent me a few pictures of naval teddy bear cookies, but also wanted the name printed across the teddy. This teddy couldn’t quite wear a striped sailor shirt, because that would have been too busy visually. So we rejigged the design, and printed Theo’s name across a blue sailor outfit.

Aeroplane cake pops

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.

 

 

 

Personalised stamped cookies

Technology is a beautiful thing. We can now print custom cookie cutters inhouse, in any shape and size, and a wide variety of fonts. The great thing about custom cookie cutter stamps is that it makes the embossing consistent every single time. The beautiful fonts fill up the cookie and are made to fit the shape and size of the cookie.

The cookies below are made with a standard cookie stamp. These offer a great alternative, but you can’t adjust the size, so you’d need to pick the right sized cookie.

PowerPuff girls cake pops

Power Puff Girls cake pops Cartoon Network

Power Puff Girls cake pops Cartoon Network

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.

Mexican Fiesta cookies and cake pops

Mexican fiesta cookies

Another theme that has been perenially popular is the fiesta.

These cookies and cake pops were made for a bright and colourful Mexican themed desserts display for the Sweet Expo in Sydney, styled by Pumpkin Carriage Events.I was chuffed to be a part of an A-list of vendors, and to have my cookies and cake pops at the Sydney expo.

Here is my own shot of the cookies. Had so much fun with this one, the colours are just so snazzy! There is a gold finish to the sombrero and the pineapples. The fiesta wording on the cookie, in case you didn’t catch it, is a replica of the sign. (Yes, Lopa the stylist sent me the artwork for inspiration)

These two were made for Stephanie of El Evento. I think the toughest part of these were the little jalapenos on the top of the sombrero cake pops. They were tiny!
