Rio Movie Themed Fondant Cake

Rio Movie Themed Fondant Cake is my very first official cake paid by a customer. It’s an 8-inch round chocolate cake with chocolate buttercream icing covered with fondant. The coloured fondant is store-bought. I chose to use store-bought fondant because I want this cake to be as colourful as seen in the picture above. 
My customer wanted Rio as it was her son’s current favorite movie. I was so excited to make this for her but I was stressed in a way that I might not be able to make the birds as beautiful as it should be. I asked help from my hubby. We tried it in playdough first. Thanks to my little daughter who lent us her playdough for this project. We thought to put Rio toys instead that comes with your Mcdonald’s happy meal. But unfortunately, we haven’t had any of those. We stopped buying happy meal since my first daughter is not little any more and we haven’t introduce happy meal to our little one or else she’ll ask for it like her big sister did when she was her age. 
So, we can’t think of other ways but to make Macaw birds out of fondant and so we did, I mean my hubby did hehe! He tried to make it as close as to the original Macaw birds; Blue and Jewel and we came up with those birds seen on the picture. 
Rio movie themed fondant cake would be my memorable cake ever as it was my very first project that made my cake more popular and had given me extra cash. 
Happy Birthday Kobi! (August 12, 2012) Thank you MD! 😀

Barbie Doll Fondant Cake

I made a Barbie Doll Fondant Cake for my 9 year old daughter. Originally, she wanted a Candyland Themed Fondant Cake inspired by Katy Perry’s California Girls music video. It didn’t happen, unfortunately, as I didn’t have enough time to make it. We were about to leave the town for a long vacation in Ohakune, New Zealand.

We celebrated her birthday in the snow of Mt. Ruapehu. She enjoyed it even it was cloudy and gusty up there. Although, the weather didn’t cooperate, the birthday celebrant assured that she’s going to make her special day, her best day ever.

Most of all, we enjoyed her chocolate cake with chocolate buttercream icing covered with fondant cake.

Fondant Bra Cake

This is my homemade fondant bra cake that I made for my friend, Ruth. She had her birthday on July 6 but I was able to give her this bra cake on the 9th because of a busy schedule.

This fondant bra cake is made of perfect chocolate cake with buttercream icing and covered with white fondant for the skin and red fondant for the bra. I also used 3 silver edible decor that I put on the center of the bra. This is a simple strapless bra that I made proudly.

I was supposed to do this on my birthday but I just thought of making 2 tier cake for a change because I haven’t tried doing 2 tier.

I’m so glad that Ruth appreciated this fondant bra cake that I made especially for her and oh, in return she gave me a special shirt from edaboc.

Angry Bird Fondant Cake

I made Angry Bird Fondant Cake for my nephew’s birthday on May 17. If only he can blow his own birthday candles? Sigh! My nephew, Migui is actually not here with us any more. He passed away when he was almost 3 years old. I don’t want to go over the details any more. I can’t accept the fact that he’s gone.

He’s supposed to be 14 years old now, and even if he’s in heaven already, we still celebrate his birthday every year. We know deep in our hearts that even he’s not physically around, he’s just here somewhere watching over us.

To you,  our dearest Igi Boy! Happy Birthday… This cake is for you! We love you so much! Mwuah! 🙂

And by the way, I don’t use pre-made fondant… I made my own fondant from scratch. 🙂

Dora Birthday Cake

I haven’t joined Food Friday for quite some time. I was so busy lately, sorry! Anyway, here is my entry for Food Friday this week. This is the Dora cake that I made for my daughter’s 2nd birthday. A super moist chocolate cake with butter  icing and fondant. 

Take note: I have no proper baking tools on hand… I just used whatever I find in my kitchen. Being resourceful is the trick 🙂 
God bless us all!
