A combination of royal icing floodwork and fondant.

All I can say is - CUTE!

Thea's Rapunzel Tower

The picture for this was given to me by the parents and I had a lot of fun making it. I love the twirly silver thingies.

Manaia's Monkey

Not a flattering picture of the monkey - he wasn't this fat! The cake looked great though.

Bill's Mt Taranaki

Trying for a bit of sunset effect. Everything is edible except the wire on the fence.

Jakson's Scooby Doo

I was happy with this cake. To start with I didn't know quite what to do after making the big Scooby Doo model. Then I decided to decorate the smaller tier with dog bones and the bottom tier with bats, ghosts and the Scooby-mobile (or whatever it's called).

Sandra's My Little Ponies

I made this cake for a lovely little girl, well my little girl anyway. Sandra has always been mad on horses and has a large collection of My Little Ponies, so I thought what a good cake to make even though she was turning 34. She loved it and it did turn out quite magical. Happy birthday baby girl.

Josh's "Wicked" Wizard of Oz

This cake was so much fun to do as Josh wanted so may details depicted on his cake. He had been to see the musical "Wicked" and wanted a cake around those likes. You can't see it in the photo but there is even a little Toto in the basket beside Dorothy. I hope he liked this one and happy 21st Josh.

Sean's Road Sweeping Truck

Isn't it funny what kids get fixated on. My brother's grandson absolutely adores washing machines! He would spin my washing machine barrel around all day if he was allowed. Well here's a little boy who is in love with road sweeping trucks and wants to drive one when he grows up. The road sweeping man has the same colouring of Sean and I heard back that he loved the cake (Sean not the gum paste man).

Russ's Bookworm

I don't know if I've mentioned it, but my husband, Russ, does volunteer work down at Hutt Central School. One of his jobs is to co-ordinate the Reading For Life programme. They have two intakes a year and at the end of each year the children and their reading buddies have a little party in the staff lunchroom and I supply a cake. Here is one of the cakes for this year.
