After having a week of all things pink in the lead up to Claire's birthday, my baking this week has been all things boys.
The first cake was for a 40th birthday. This cake was cherry ripe mudcake filled with dark chocolate ganache and fondant covering. The electric guitar was hand modeled from modeling paste. All was going well with the cake until I went to place the guitar on top and the end broke off! I panicked for a moment, but luckily I could fix it with a little sugar glue.
My eldest son's kindergarten teacher welcomed her new baby boy into the world last week, so I baked some cookies for her. Vanilla sugar cookies with fondant icing and a little message!
An aeroplane theme was the request for the next birthday. Oliver is turning 2 and his dad is a pilot. Chocolate cupcakes with buttercream swirls and hand modeled aeroplanes, also hand cut vanilla sugar cookies with fondant icing.
The last cake was for another little boy turning 2. His request was a Chuggington theme. White chocolate mudcake with white chocolate filling and fondant covering. The trains were hand modeled from modelling paste.
Next week involves some more fun cakes including a groovy 70's theme and Mickey Mouse, so be sure to come back later in the week to check them out. Enjoy your week.
