Partying kitties

cats-and-woolMy friend Scott’s mum’s birthday is Christmas Eve and this year she turned 70, so he wanted to celebrate that milestone.
She loves her two cats, Lucky and Angel, and asked that they were on the cake. Here they are, already celebrating her special day, playing with green and red wool (a nod to the season), and donning party hats.
Happy birthday to the pre-Christmas baby!

Horse-lover’s cupcakes

horsey-cupcakesThese cupcakes, I thought, were perfect for a young lady who loves horses. A few funny little fondant ponies, fondant horse shoes (for luck!) and some pink roses made up the complement of a dozen cupcakes.
When I can, I try to make 12 cupcakes with varying designs to kinda mix it up a bit. The horsey theme was a fun one to play with.
I hope Kelly galloped her way to a really fun birthday. Neigh!

Calico cat

Cat for Famke's 6th bday 1Little Famke was turning six and asked me to do a cake for her that looked like her calico cat Liko. I have a sweet calico named Nutmeg and she sat at my feet most of the time while I was making this cake. She’s a great little model.

Cat for Famke's 6th bdayThe cake body was vanilla and fed about 20 people. I decided to make the head and balls of yarn from Rice Krispie treats. Fun to work with and easy to shape.
Famke loved it and at the end of the party, the only bits left were the head and a ball of wool.
