Pokemon Ball Cake

This is the 3rd time I've got to make Logan's birthday cake and the first time that he didn't have Pablo from Backyardigans on his cake.  He's moved on.  Poor Pablo!  For this birthday Logan's request was a Pokemon Ball.  I really don't know much about Pokemon.  Miss E has a Piplup stuffy that she picked on an excursion with Mr. T to the Pacific Mall.  That's all I know, or rather did know.  Making cakes for boys is certainly educational for me.

For this cake I made a vanilla cake with sprinkles in it, covered it in buttercream icing then fondant.  The characters Logan's bought for me to add.  I wouldn't even attempt to try and make these.  Besides this way Logan gets to have a toy out of the cake too.  The orange and black rabbit like thing is called Tepig, the pig, Munna and the bird Drilbur.  I have no idea what they do, I don't even know what Piplup does, and it looks like a penguin. However, a lot of kids at the party knew exactly who they were.

I'd originally taken the picture of the cake that I would post on here with my standard black background.  But when I saw this table cloth at the party I had to take a picture of the cake on it to post on here instead.  I even got Piplup in (bottom left) as homage to Miss E's favourite character.

  1. That is really cool that kids are still into pokemon. I loved them in university. My favourite was psyduck because everyone made fun of him.

Baby Shower Cake

One of the teams on my floor had me make a cake for one of their co-workers going on off on mat leave earlier this month.  She doesn't know the sex of the baby so I made it as neutral as possible.  This was an 8" two layer chocolate cake.  I just used some circle cutters to make the polka dots and the lettering.


The unofficial shot of the cake I caught Willow trying to get at the cake. She got pretty close before I shooed her away.

Owl in Tree for Lindsay

Shocking that inspiration for this cake came from Pinterest which in turn came from the blog the Bitten Word which in turn came from the November 2011 issue of Martha Stewart Living.  I'm sure that in the baking world you could play Six Degrees of Martha Stewart no problem.  One day I might actually make this cake, but the only part of this recipe I used was the caramel, and it was only half the recipe. I used the Perfect Chocolate Cake recipe for the cake.  You really can't go wrong with this recipe and I have no desire to deviate.


This is part II of Lindsay's birthday celebration.  She is an amazing friend, well, the best friend a girl could ask for, so naturally she deserves the best cake.  I knew that chocolate and caramel would be a winning combination for her.  Then for the decorating I didn't want to cover it in fondant as I still think covering this icing is a crime against nature!  On the other hand I find decorating chocolate a challenge.  Fortunately I found…

Superhero Cake for Keaton

Keaton's request this year was for a superhero cake.  I am so glad I bought the superhero cutters from Etsy.  They have been a great investment.  They save me so much time for decorating.


This was a two layer 10" chocolate layer cake with chocolate filling.  To cover seems between the different colours for the background I added the black stripes and some stars.  Orange is Keaton's favourite colour, so I couldn't leave it out and added it in with the sentiment.

Putting the cake together took a little longer than I expected, so we were a half an hour late to the party.  I had the best intentions to be on time for a change.  Oh well!
