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…

Toilet Paper Roll Birthday Cake

This was a fun cake to do.  At first I really wasn't sure how it would turn out.  In the end I thought it was hilarious.


So, I started off with an 8" two layer square vanilla base tier.  The filling was raspberry mascarpone mousse.  It is so good!  Then I covered it using the grass tip to look like carpet with buttercream icing.  I would have used the filling but I didn't drain out the seeds and they would have clogged up the tip.  It wouldn't have been pretty.  Instead I dyed it to match the filling as close as possible to make pink shag carpet.
For the toilet paper roll I did a 6" 3 layer cake and covered it in fondant.  I added an extra piece of fondant to make it look like the paper was unraveling.  On the top I added a black circle of fondant to look like the empty space from the roll.  Lastly, I took a toothpick and spun the cake around to make the indentations of a "roll" of toilet paper.
The signs I made out of fondant.  In the picture I was sen…
