A Monkey, Ice Age and Spongebob!

My weekend has been filled with baking and decorating cakes! First to be finished was a white chocolate mudcake with butter cream and fondant decorations. This cake was for a lady who has always wanted a monkey!! I am making her daughter's wedding cake in a couple of months, so she decided to order a special cake for her mum's birthday.

One of my nephew's was celebrating his 6th birthday this weekend and requested an Ice Age 3 themed cake. Normally I make all of the decorations for my cakes, but this one stumped me! I attempted to make the figurines but they were disastrous, so I ended up buying a set of Ice Age figurines (they were actually from the series from the McDonald's Happy Meals). The cake still turned out ok and Luca was happy with it, which is all that matters.

It was dark chocolate mudcake with dark chocolate ganache and fondant covering.

There were also matching vanilla sugar cookies, simple circles with a number 6 embossed on them.

The third cake for the weekend was for Keira who was turning 9 this weekend. She requested a Spongebob Squarepants cake. 

This was also dark chocolate mudcake with dark chocolate ganache and fondant covering. 

So it was a mixed bag of cakes this weekend. They were all a lot of fun to create. 

The coming week is all about Lego, a bowling alley and star wars so be sure to drop by later in the week to see what I create.

Enjoy your week!
