Star Wars, Buzz Lightyear and A Ten Pin Bowling Alley!

Last weekend along with Lachlan's 7th Birthday Party, I had a couple of other cakes to create. My nephew's 8th birthday falls the day after Lachlan's, and he chose a Star War's themed cake. He had a whole set of figurines and chose his favourites to be placed on the cake.

The two tier cake was dark chocolate mudcake with dark chocolate ganache and fondant covering.

The next cake was for a lovely lady who was turning 40, Simone. She enjoys playing ten pin bowling. Her grandmother contacted me a few weeks ago and asked me to make a ten pin bowling alley for her.

I created a huge cake for the party. It was a moist buttercake with white chocolate ganache and fondant covering. The pins and bowling ball were made from modelling paste.

The last cake was for a young man turning 19. His mum contacted me and requested a Buzz Lightyear themed cake! This one was a lot of fun to make.

The cake was dark chocolate mudcake with dark chocolate ganache and fondant covering.

That brings to an end my mammoth August of cakes! I have a little break now until my little girl's first birthday in a few weeks.

Happy father's day to all the dad's out there today.

  1. Love the buzz cake they are all really good as always :)

  2. Awesome cakes KT!!! Funny story - I was looking at the pics when my middle man walked into the office and exclaimed, "Oh wow! A Buzz cake!" I think you have another fan : )

    By the way, can I ask where you get your candles from? I have been searching for those candles endlessly and can't find them anywhere.

  3. Thanks Mira :)

    I purchase these candles from Cake Decorating Central, they are called bullet candles, and they have a large range of colours.

  4. WOW Katena, you have been extremely busy, they all look incredible!!!
