Tardis Cake 2016

I was very excited to be asked to make a Tardis Cake again.  Even with my cousin's wedding last night I was able to squeeze in the time to do the cake. I baked the cake the day before.  I did two 8" square pans of a flourless chocolate cake.  It's very dense and very chocolatey!

First thing in the morning I decorated the board to make it look like space.  It was fun to do but I didn't realise I was out of white dye so I had to wake Mr. T up early to go out to the Bulk Barn for me to get it.


This cake was not as daunting as the first one I made given that I had been through it before.  Also, this one was 8 layers for 4 x 4 squares instead of 6 x 6.  It went together fairly quickly.  The windows were the most tedious to do.


I don't have a fancy printer with edible ink to print on rice paper so I just regular paper and ink for the "Police Public Call Box", the sign and the logo.  These are the only parts that are not edible in the cake.

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!
