Cake Decorating

A couple of new cakes that I have done recently...just my standard chocolate cake. I really should break out one of these days and work out a recipe for a different type of cake. Although I am not keen on all the testing that comes with it...what to you do with all the okay but not quite perfect cakes? 

A puppy dog cake for a friend's 3 year old, the paw prints were all individually cut out of fondant with 2 different sized piping nozzles. It was very hard to get them in place! 

A Christmas present cake for a recent Christmas party. I was pleased with how the bow turned out, although it could have been a bit thinner. Plus I didn't make it with enough time for it to dry properly so it deflated after a while, but not until after the party thankfully. 


  1. ooh lovely!
    I love the simplicity of the present ;-)

  2. Katren, love the look of your cakes and am keen to give your cake recipe a go. How do you think it would go in a 6 inch tin as that's all I have?

  3. Thanks Cathy.

    Anonymous, the 6 inch tin will be too small for the full mixture. If you have a second one I would do two. Or if you have a muffin tin the leftover mixture makes great cupcakes.

  4. They're absolutely beautiful! And I find bows really hard to do so I applaud your bow! :D
