Me to You Bear Birthday Cake

This birthday cake was made for Paris, a two year old adorable boy, who celebrated his second birthday yesterday.  His mum, my friend Alexia, wanted to decorate his birthday cake with a clay Me to You bear, an idea which was unacceptable by me...(I am sure you understand why...). 
It took me approximately 4 hours to make the second cake layer (with the bear) and a total of 6 hours to make the whole cake. You can see the end result in this photo.

The only "problem" was that the bear was a bit heavy, and the only way it could be placed on a cake was laying down.


 I used rolled fondant for the cake decoration and a double chocolate fudge recipe for the cake. I will only tell you that my secret ingredient to the fudge cake was Greek yogurt. A magic ingredient according to my point of view :-)

  45. Spectacular! This must have taken a lot of patience and time. Both of which I have never been good at, but after viewing your post it has definitely changed my outlook. Your cake looks wonderfully divine, and yummy. Who would've ever thought something as simple as this, could change your perspective on life? It most certainly have changed mine, because I'm going to take the time and patience it needs to do something as similar as this, and who knows? Maybe something more...

    to your blog. Is that this a paid theme or did you customize it
    your self? Either way keep up the excellent high quality writing,
    it's uncommon to see a great weblog like this one
    these days..

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!!!
