Fondant Cigars Birthday Cake

This was my husband's birthday cake.
-------------------------------------------------------
This sugar cigar case was made tonight, and it is going to be used as a decoration theme for  my husband's birthday cake. I have to admit that photos do not show all the details on the cigars, but I think they are good enough to show the end result.

 



I used icing fondant and gum paste which I made from scratch (you can find this recipe and instructions in a previous post). I also used fondant colour paste, and edible pens.  



Although my husband does not smoke any more, this cake was a pleasant surprise for him!
His birthday is on the 21/03/11.

  33. This cake shows a great way to creatively capture something that is incredibly unhealthy (cigars) with something that is... well.. less unhealthy (cake). It's a great idea for adults, but it's a good thing this cake isn't marketed to kids. There are already enough ad campaigns directed toward promoting tobacco products to kids in order to draw in life-long customers from a young age, as tobacco has proven to be extremely habit-forming.

ΑΦΗΣΤΕ ΤΟ ΣΧΟΛΙΟ ΣΑΣ ΚΑΙ ΜΠΕΙΤΕ ΣΕ ΚΛΗΡΩΣΗ ΓΙΑ ΤΟ ΒΙΒΛΙΟ! -------------------------------------

Ήδη μαγείρεψα πάρα πολλές συνταγές και οφείλω να ομολογήσω ότι καμία δεν με απογοήτευσε.
Εάν έχετε συγγενείς και φίλους, Έλληνες, Κύπριους ή γνώστες της Ελληνικής γλώσσας που θέλουν να μάθουν την Κυπριακή κουζίνα, σίγουρα ένα τέτοιο βιβλίο θα εκτιμηθεί δεόντως. Κάντε το δώρο στον εαυτό σας ή στα παιδιά σας που είναι φοιτητές και θέλουν να μάθουν να μαγειρεύουν, ή ακόμη κάντε το δώρο στους φίλους σας αυτά τα Χριστούγεννα. Στοιχίζει όσο δύο καφέδες!! Μόνο 6 Ευρώ από το μπλογκ της, σε μορφή pdf, αλλά εάν το θέλετε σε άλλη μο…

Mickey Mouse Birthday Cake

This cake was made for Demetris, an adorable two year old boy!  I hope he likes it. His mother told me that he likes Mickey Mouse very much!
Here you can see the cake decoration steps.  I used buttercream, in order to make the surface of the cake smooth.

This cake took me 3 hours to decorate it. The black part was the hardest to finish. I used wilton's black decoratcing icing. Happy Birthday Demetri!!!
