Game of Thrones cake! the cake and bloodiness is all buttercream and the throne is a combo of gumpaste and fondant that is airbrushed silver.  Came out pretty snazzy if I do say so myself, however I have never seen the show or read the books.  Something I was curious to know was if this throne was made up of the swords of someones defeated enemies or if its made of all the allies who fought with these swords to raise this king/queen to their throne.  Perhaps its both…

Aspirations

Hoping to get some modelling chocolate made to try some figure making.  I planned to make a disgea cake for Dayboo’s birthday last weekend but ended up too busy and dave opted for hangouts over cake making haha.  Gonna get it up by the end of the month tho!

Carebear Countdown! 5! 4! 3! 2! 1!  quick cake at work.  the bears are just figurines.  Then the rainbows are fondant and the rest is buttercream.

SUPER MINIONS!!! this cake was pretty cute.  had to make super hero minions outta fondant/gumpaste.  I love the little curl on the superman one hahaha.  The rest of the cake is buttercream so its tasty too!  Also I guess the kid likes Robin better than the super heroes since he ended up on top!   Maybe a teen titans fan, cuz then robin is totes the leader!

Here’s a little photo dump of the nerdier cakes that cake been going on at work since my last posts since thats usually what I try and keep on this page haha.  Mostly superheroes, but kermit too :D  I am disappointed I can’t post an amazing tmnt cake…. I was asked about an order for a like 300 dollar one and was super pumped but it hasnt happened yet so I guess it didnt go through. Sadness because it would’ve been like my DREAM cake to make.  Anyway now that all my con pretp is done I should be doing some home baking and have a few cool things to post!

Well its time for some lame excuses for my lack of posting and my annual dump of anime north pics instead of cakes! whoooo! lol.  Here’s some progress pics on my weapon this year, a hunting horn from monster hunter.  I found this like corrugated plastic board at currys it was called plasticore or plasticrete or something.  So basically I made a base out of that and tons of glue gunning (like 3 bags o glue)  and then I decorated it all with craft foam layers and painted extra details with acrylic paint!

If Only Elsa had learned to let it go like Indy…

How to Make your own Mario Cupcake Toppers! pt. 2

Roll a string in brown fondant and cut a few short pieces.  Fold them in half.

once they are folden press them together lightly with your fingers.  This will be a sideburn. be sure to make one for each ear.

you will have to trim the sideburn to fit properly on the face, the important part is just to have the split at the end to look more like mario.

roll small balls and flatten them in your fingers for the eyes just like you did for the nose.   Try and make it thinner though so the eyes don’t look like they are bulging.  And for the eyebrows are cut from a string I rolled in black fondant like the sideburns were.  Remember use a little water to make it all stick.

For the hat, roll out red fondant and take your cutter you used for the face. DONT CUT WITH IT! just place it on top for a size reference and use and exacto knife above it to cut what looks like a good size hat above it.  then you can pick us the cutter and cut the bottom an amount that looks nice to overlap the forhead.

roll another string in red and cut it to be the brim of your hat.

make more balls and flatten them for the irises and the logo on the cap.  Then I painted the pupils so I didnt add any bulk to the eyes.  you can paint the M on the hat too or roll a string to fold into an M.

I added some shines in the eyes with royal icing but you can choose not to.  Then let it sit overnight to dry.  Then it will be nice and dry and easy to pick up for placing on cupcakes without damaging it.  Just swirl some buttercream and pop her on!

Tah Dah!!!

How to Make your own Mario Cupcake Toppers! pt. 1

So its been a while since I have internet but I have lots of pics! heres an easy tutorial for mario head toppers!

cut out a circle in flesh tone :D you can use a cookie cutter!

Trim the sides a bit to make it more face shaped. it doesn’t have to have the chin detail like mine, but cute the sides off to fit his sideburns and ears later.

Roll three balls in the same flesh colour.  Make sure one is big and two are of equal size and smaller.

flatten them w bit with your fingers to spread them out.

put the larger flattened ball as the nose.  Then cut the other two flattened ones off on one edge so the connect as ears.

Now to make the mustache! Take a circle cutter that is smaller than the one you used as the head. I put both to compare sizes.

once you cut out the circle in black, use that same cutter on the top of your circle to make a half moon.

Cut triangles out of the bottom of the crescent to make it a mustache shape!

Which should fit great with your nose :D

Here’s some more angles of the shark cake completed. This one came out really nice.  Its one of those times in your life where you are quite proud of your work hahaha.  Def my feelings on this cake, I loved it!
