Calculator Cake

This CALCULATOR CAKE is 8.5 inches x 6 inches cake. My client asked me to make a cake for a friend who is an accountant so I instantly thought of a calculator. A chocolate fudge cake with buttercream filling then covered with fondant icing. Everything is edible, including the keys and the numbers which are also made from fondant. Just a cute idea for a hardworking...

Topsy Turvy Cake

This is my first TOPSY TURVY CAKE for a my client’s 65th birthday. This cake is also called as whimsical or mad-hatter cake or slanted cake. It really was a challenge baking and designing this one. My client asked me to do the cake with about 3.5 feet height cake. Another challenge was on how to transport and deliver the cake from my production area to their event area which is about an hour drive. It will never fit in our car, so initially, I was planning to rent a mini cargo bus. But my team suggested that we rather rent a van and bring the cakes and set up the layers on the event area. I had 3 guys with me to help me bring and set up the cake for it was terribly heavy. After setting each layer up, I mumbled to myself, MISSION...

Fondant Wedding Cakes...

So many topics and photos I wish to post. It is just hard to find time to do so. And unfortunately I feel so terribly tired today. But I am gathering all my strength just for this one. I know I can get some pleasure after posting an entry. I did 5 FONDANT CAKES this week and 170 CUPCAKES. I will be posting the pictures soon. But for the meantime, I’m gonna share the first wedding cake. I made this wedding cake and cupcake for my friend Rowel and Juna who just got married last April. I feel that I really pulled this one as my pilot wedding cake. And I am really proud of it. The banquet manager of Leisure Coast Resort saw this picture at my facebook account, gave me a call and asked me if I can provide cakes for their weddings and events. It was a blast! It was like Christmas day! It really opened a big door of opportunity for me to earn and do what I want, which is baking. Now, this is a sample shot of the cake and cupcakes delivered to a wedding at LCR. It is a 5 tier wedding fondant cake and cupcakes. The cake is an 8-inch fondant chocolate cake and 70 chocolate fudgy cupcakes with whipped cream frosting placed on a tower. Even after standing 12 hours a day on my legs, I feel so grateful for every cake that I deliver to my clients. I get to work at home with my husband on the side. I can put my kids to nap while my cake is in the oven. I get to share my cakes to my family and friends. Nah, I will never feel tired of...

Fondant Cake

It has been a while since I posted last. But I have a nice reason, a great reason for not being in the netosphere lately. This time, I want your eyes to feast on what I’ve have been busying lately. But before anything else, let me start with this photo: This is my very FIRST FONDANT CAKE. I had no materials, cutters, rolling pins, mats at that time. I had no time and no extra money to get a formal training for fondant cakes but with much faith and hope, I was able to kill my experiment to be a good blend for the fondant icing. Then my Aunt asked me to do a cake for her birthday last March. It was a 16-hour process, tired and exhausted, and it was just an A-OK cake. The FONDANT BIRTHDAY CAKE was not supposed to be covered in plain white but I was terribly tired and sleepy that I forgot to tint the fondant. And since I had no cutters yet, I desperately settled with some royal icing flowers I bought from a local store. I expected it would not gain a WOW comment from friends and from my aunt but then they loved it! Maybe they was awed for I never made something like that before. But unbelievably, I had some inquiries for that cake. Then the fondant cake business started when my former high school classmate asked me to do a cake for her niece on her graduation day. So I swore to myself that I have to make it good this time so I can get more attention since I foresee a good business out of the passion that I have. This is the first paid fondant cake I made: I spent 2...
