Ashtray Birthday Cake

 Happy Birthday Marios!!!
A chocolate fudge cake with a rich chocolate filling and orange buttercream on top, covered with homemade fondant
I tried to create the marble effect on the ashtray. I used a different recipe for the buttercream this time. Instead of using icing sugar I used sugar syrup and this time I used egg-yolks as well. The buttercream texture and the taste were perfect, but it was difficult for me to apply it on the cake, since it was too soft.
Yes!  The cigar was made of fondant, and the ash was  edible silver and pearl dust. It looks real, doesn't it?

Hello Kitty Birthday Cake

This cake was made for two cute sisters, Marissa and Korina.  The Hello Kitty figure was made with Fondant icing.  The rest of the cake was decorated with fresh cream. The actual cake was made with biscuits, butter, cocoa powder, icing sugar, milk, eggs and brandy.
Happy Birthday Girls!!!!

Date and Almond, Square Cake


It’s been ages since I last posted a cake recipe. Yesterday I had a million of things to do but I was feeling I had to do something for you as well. 
I decided to create a date/almond cake that would be easy to prepare, and perfect with a cup of tea!

It took me approximately 5’ minutes to gather all ingredients and 10’ minutes to prepare the cake. Very easy, isn't it?
