Cut the Rope Cake for Miss E's Belated 8th Birthday Bash

Miss E's birthday is actually October 12th.  Given that October was a CRAZY month for us we moved out celebrating her party to this weekend.  She went back and forth on what she wanted for her cake.  She finally decided on a Cut the Rope Cake.

I was able to order online a cake kit that included Om-Nom (the funny green guy), a candy ring and the Cut the Rope sign.  This saved me a bit of time for sure.  My favourite thing about this cake is the "plate" I used.  I had Mr. T buy a 12" x 12" plain white ceramic tile from RONA for $4.00.  I picked up some felt pads and green ribbon from a Dollarama for an additional $2.00.  Glued the ribbon around the sides of the tile and VOILA, a really nice cake plate for $6.00.  Can't beat that!

The cake was a 10" two layer cookies and cream cake covered in butter cream icing and fondant decorations; all to Miss E's specifications.

Hosting a party for 21 kids is not for the weak!  Even though Mr. T and I super exhausted, it was a great time.  Miss. E had a blast and I think the kids did too.  We played some classic games like musical chairs, hot potato, and freeze dance.  The clear favourite was unraveling a roll of toilet paper as fast as you can.  Then later as we had lots of extra rolls, they wrapped themselves up as mummies.

Again this year Miss E asked for a donation instead of a gift.  This year the donations are going to SickKids in honour of her 8th birthday.

Thank you everyone for your support and sharing in celebrating her special day!


  1. Happy birthday Miss E! It was a fab party. You outdid yourself as always, with the cake and the entertainment.

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…
