Meet The Dragon

My friend Amelia told me that her daughter would like to have cupcakes for her birthday party, when I asked what birthday girl wants me to bake she said her daughter wants DRAGON cupcakes (!!!) Well, I’ve seen Planet Cake awesome Rainbow Dragon cupcakes in their book couple years back so I thought I’ll give it  a try.

Got the book out of the shelves, read all the instruction, bake the vanilla cupcakes and off I go assembling the dragon cupcakes from scratch. Nearly 10 hours later I’ve got my mighty but beautiful dragon cupcake staring at me, what an achievement!

Dragon 1

I LOVE IT!

My first swimmer pull apart cupcakes cake, thank you Tania for the challenge. I can picture this scene in my head vividly, our kids competing in the swim meet, the metallic blue swimming cap of BSM swimming squad member and their hand inches away from touching the wall. All that determination and self discipline paid off. One proud swimmer Mum to another, see you at the squad practice.

Happy birthday Alexander!

Pull apart cupcakes cake with 寿 Longevity (Shòu) Chinese character, Mariel’s order.

The cupcakes cake consists of Vanilla cupcakes and Oreo cupcakes with buttercream frosting, my second time around drawing the character on the cupcake, this is more masculine then the first one. Definitely my favourite project of the week, LOVE it!

Frozen

Hiroko’s order for her daughter birthday party, Vanilla cupcakes with Walt Disney movie Frozen theme and Lemon cupcakes with lemon curd filling & cream cheese frosting.

My daughter and I watched Frozen the movie so many times that I lost count, at some moment we’ve got the movie soundtrack playing in the car endlessly (like every other family I guess). I love all 3 main characters from the movie but Anna was my favourite, especially the part when she sing “Do you want to build a snowman…”

Happy birthday Eriko!

Golden Birthday

I’m a big fun of the giant cupcake, it’s huge, versatile and the possibility to decorate it is endless.

This was Dewi’s order for her husband birthday today. It’s Vanilla cupcake with Nutella filling and buttercream frosting. I’m using white chocolate to cover the bottom part of the cake, I like the neat cupcake paper liner look-a-like result. The stars were made from cut out fondant and I’m alternating it with golden dragées. Added golden luster dust on the number 50 to accentuate the celebrant golden birthday celebration and Voila, all is done.

My daughter was volunteering to deliver the cupcake, she was beaming with pride, too cute!

You-know-who baked these scrumptious cupcakes for Keya’s 9th birthday celebration recently.

It was vanilla cupcakes with buttercream frosting and sugar fondant topper. Some fictional items from one of my favourite book were transformed into edible treat, the wizard hat, Nimbus 2000, quidditch, Gryffindor scarf, Platform 9 3/4, book of spells and of course Harry Potter specs with the lightning strike mark, such a great fun!

Happy birthday Keya, wingardium leviosa!

My favourite project of the week!

These are vanilla cupcake with caramel filling, it’s really HUGE cupcake cake, one of the giant cupcake is enough to serve more than 20 people for sure. Vendra’s order for Yessi & Vonny’s birthday celebration. Theme requested was roses, butterfly & hearts in pink dominant. The most difficult part was transporting them, so many pot holes in Metro Manila and my driver has to drive in snail speed to keep them intact!
