Cakes! Glorious Cakes! _ Despicable Me 2, A Pot of Flower, Engagement Cake, Mickey Mouse Clubhouse

I have probably made hundreds of cakes in my lifetime but I still get a little nervous whenever someone orders a cake because my goal has always been to exceed my own and my customer’s expectations. And that’s tough. It’s tough to meet customers expectations, let alone exceed them thats why my brain usually end up overused and overtired and my computer overused and overheating after every cake project.

Nightly before I retire I usually sit with my daughter in front of the telly pretending to watch Disney Junior.   Just pretending because all I can actually see are cakes after cakes and never ending cakes.  Anyways just last week I realized that I forgot to tell you about (or actually brag about ) some of the cakes I have made since a few months back.  My lazy self kept procrastinating on writing a post until I forgot all about it.  Heck this just doesn’t do justice to my overused brain.

Hence this is a post exclusively for the forgotten cakes. So without further ado here are some of the cakes I have made that I believe I haven’t had the time to post when they were made.

Despicable Me 2 

This cake is for my husband.  I rarely make cakes for him because he’s not much of a cake or pastry eater.

I mean if he had a choice between pigging out on a delicious cake or dimsums he will definitely choose the dimsums.  But recently he’s on a diet and you know what dieters crave for the most? SUGAR!  (so I had an evil plan to make him a cake for his birthday. Wahaha! ) So I made him a low fat and low sugar banana cake for his birthday.  I decided on a Despicable Me theme because he loves the humor of that movie.

Chocolate Flower Pot

The truth is I hate making flowers because I find it super boring to make the petals.   That’s mostly the reason why I don’t like making wedding cakes but last month was my truly amazing mother-in-law’s birthday who truly loves flowers so I have to say I really don’t have any choice but to make flowers.

I had to make 10 flowers and that’s equivalent to 220 petals for this small chocolate cake pot.  And believe me if I were to explain how each petals were made it will take a whole post, so lets just skip that part.  I’m glad everyone loves this cake and I was actually surprised on how beautiful this turned out, it definitely exceeded my own expectation.

A Romantic Engagement Cake

I have nothing to say about this cake except that it’s perfectly romantic especially the first picture.  I love it to the max!  The soon to be bride, Cherry, allowed me to post their photo here to show you guys.  Thank you so much Cherry! It’s picture perfect!

Mickey Mouse Clubhouse

I was a baker at age 12 but I was a painter since I was 7.   I have to say I enjoyed making this cake the most because it involves both form of art, painting and cake decorating.

The painted and fondant-ed background really adds up nicely to the entire look of the cake.  The mom who ordered this wanted the cake to be mostly marshmallow buttercream frosted so instead of covering the entire cake with 100% fondant I only covered it 30%. The Mickey Mouse figure is entirely edible.

Ayayayayay! More flowers! I can’t tell you anything else.  You’ll have to see it when it’s done 🙂

  1. Your flowers are beautiful, but I can’t imagine the work that goes into them. They’re too pretty to eat! Lovely cakes, all of them. So nice of you to go easy on the sugar for your hubby’s diet.

    • Edible flowers usually takes the longest time ti make but the result is always Wow. Eating less sugar is always better to prevent diabetes. Thanks Patti. 😄

  2. You are an amazing pastry artisan! I cannot imagine how much time it took to even make one flower and so perfectly! And I am jealous of how you effortlessly spread that frosting!

    • Thanks you for complementing and watching the video. Spreading frosting on cakes gets easy the more you do it and it could get quite therapeutic as well. ☺
