Damask details, pale blue and an air of style were the elements that brought Jacob’s Christening together – that and the touch of stylist Melissa of The Sweet Society.
A sweet celebration designed around a gorgeous colour palette of blue, latte and white. A hand cut quatrefoil pattern features around the bottom tier and a hand made pair of sugar converse sneakers adorn the top of the cake.
A towering creation for a peacock themed wedding featuring hand painted peacock plumes.
I loved, loved, loved making this cake! This cake was created for my gorgeous little nephew George for his christening.
It’s always lovely to be asked ‘back’ to make another cake for a client… this cake was created for little Jesse’s first birthday. I recently made his Train christening cake and was excited to be part of his special birthday too..
This cake was designed around the invitations sourced from Australian company “Imprintables”.They have a gorgeous collection of stylish invitations for all occasions and this birthday invitation was no exception.
This cake was created for my cousin’s little girl’s 1st birthday celebration which took place in a local park.
In coming up with a concept for the cake, I was told that little Christina loved birds. So, putting these two elements together, this design was born.
I was contacted to create a christening cake for a little boy… the brief was to use blue, white, keep it simple with a train on the top. So that’s what I did!
My sister in law is expecting her first baby in November and didnt want a baby shower. So, of course, her husband’s sister and I organised a surprise baby shower. We wanted one!!! So, in between the lies (white lies), the scheming, the stealing her friend’s phone numbers from her phone, emailing invitations and swearing all guests to secrecy we managed to get everyone in the same room, on time and she had absolutely no idea.
It was fabulous.
This christening cake was designed with the soft hues of blue for a baby boy in mind, something simple and elegant but suitable for an infant at the same time.
The blossoms were hand made and individually painted / dusted with lustre dust to achieve the graduated colours on top.
The height of the tiers was kind of un-intentional (!!) I didn’t realise how ridiculously high they were until it came time to cover them with fondant. Luckily I was quick and it all went well (phew!). Kind of ironic as many times I wish I had those extra few ever elusive centimeters!!
There is a gorgeous special occassion gift and bomboniere business in Melbourne called “Annabella Bomboniere” that has a fantastic selection of modern peices – not your usual crystal figurine kind of stuff. I designed this cake around one of the wooden china dolls they offer as a christening favour and owners Anna and Theo were kind enough to display it in their store…
She comes in all sorts of colours but I was particularly taken by the blue one and so created a cake around her. They loved it and I hope their clients love it too!
The flowers around the bottom tier are another version of the whimsical blossoms that feature on a few of my christening designs.. this time a little more sophisticated with pearl lustre dust giving them depth of colour and some stamens in the middle – just for something different!
