Sweet MAC Attack

She’s turning 18 and is a make up queen, a MAC make up queen to be exact! You’ve probably guessed it… a MAC inspired cake is on order. She likes to play with make up and I like to play with sugar – in any form. For this cake I used a mix of fondant and gumpaste. After several hours here’s what my sugar play created. Happy Birthday Tayler!

Trent & Toni’s Engagement

In the first weeks of school during a break Toni and I met.  We started chatting and I shared with her with what I do for work – create cakes!  Then she bubbled over with excitement asking if I were the same person that sells cupcakes at the markets.  Yes, I’m her!!  She further explained that her fiancé, Trent, just loves the Chocolate cupcake.  A few weeks later Trent and Toni had a wonderful Engagement party at the Picnic Bay Surf Lifesaving Club which I enjoyed being a one of their guests.

For some reason I’m on the ruffle binge… Buttercream with ruffles (click here) and now fondant with ruffles.  This took a lot longer than I expected as each strip around the cake had to be done individually so the fondant wouldn’t dry out.  For the ruffling edge I had to use a small tea scoop!  😦  I can hardly wait until I get all of my decorating tools from New York, it would surely make the job a whole lot faster.  🙂

Toni’s guest invitations were Black, White and Avocado Green which inspired this cake, with the beautiful fresh flowers from Townsville Flower Market.
