Not much posting lately – have been so busy work Full time and making cakes in the evening. This weeks cake was a bright fun cake for a friend who lives in Melbourne. Her darling boy Sam turned 1 and of course it was time to celebrate.
So Elmo came to party! Jumping out the cake to say HAPPY BIRTHDAY SAM!
I love making bright fun cakes like this – it makes me smile, and makes those who get the cake happy and cheery too. This was a half caramel mud cake, and half chocolate mud cake with Milk Chocolate ganache. 6 inches high and 9 inches in diameter – it was a huge cake!! But it looked awesome once it was complete.

This weeks cake was certainly a challenge, but I think it turned out quite well.
The brief was for a recycle wheelie bin for a 2yo that likes bins. A special request for the City of Mitcham logo on the front, and also to make it ‘fun’. After a bit of thinking, this is what I came up with
6 layers of a mix of chocolate mud and caramel mud cake with milk chocolate ganache, with a covering of fondant to get the great green colour. All the items were made my me, and included a cereal box, newspaper, milk carton, tin cans, wine bottle and book. Edible images were used for the Mitcham logo, as well as the recycle logo on the sides of the bin. A trail of ants crawling up the back of the bin finished it off.
Novelty cakes are lots of fun, especially when they can be personalised for the customer. I loved making this cake, I learnt lots of different techniques, and had a lot of fun making it.
