Seahorse Beach Cake

Seahorse Beach Cake

Who can resist a playful Seahorse Beach cake  for a celebration of love at the shore? And the ocean colors of coral and seagreen make this cake ‘break wave’ for the occasion.

After all, seahorses mate for life!

What makes this cake special in design? A splash of seaside colors on the buttercream. And the lower part of the cake has crumbs from shortbread cookies so as to resemble sand. Together with the above, the fondant seashells adds the final touch of ocean nostalgia

Most of all, the seahorses in the eel grass makes this cake worthy of standing alone. The cake is perfect for an intimate wedding or anniversary. It’s also an excellent choice for a top tier or a beach-themed wedding cake.

In addition, together with the How to Make Trendy Cakes video tutorial, it will be a piece of cake.

Intimate Wedding Anniversary Cake

Intimate Wedding Anniversary Cake

An intimate wedding anniversary cake. It’s perfect for a small wedding or to celebrate a milestone anniversary with friends. 

The design of this wedding anniversary cake can be changed and the heart (with or without) the bridal couple in the center and with this in mind, the doves are the main focal part of the design.

Anyhow, attach the doves to the heart with royal icing and allow the decoration to air dry on a cake dummy before placing onto the buttercream cake.

On the back of the heart, a dab of buttercream will adhere the design to a chilled cake.

Finally, long black hat pins for the eyes, adheres the doves onto the heart design. Last but not least, don’t forget to remove the pins before serving the cake.

Be sure to stop and watch the wedding anniversary video. You will be delightfully amazed on how easy the decorations are to make!

Fox Cake

Here’s how to make a Fox Cake for a Woodlands Theme party. Featuring a time lapse video and a *free* cake template.

 

Hi my name is Sylvester and I mind my Ps & Qs.  Walking in the woodlands is my favorite thing to do.

My favorite pastime is chasing fluttering butterflies and rolling in colorful falling leaves.  And my secret wish is to belong to a little boy to love and please. 

I’m not a sly fox, I’m clever as can be. I’ll brighten your day to celebrate and be a perfect woodlands theme.

And thanks so much in advance, for choosing me for your cake.

Love ,

Sylvester

The vanilla bean cake was filled with a caramel buttercream and covered in Dulce de Leche Ganache.

Ballerina Cake

Ballerina Cake

Little girls dream of being a ballerina and this dancing Ballerina Cake will keep you on pointe with a cake pattern and time lapse video.

Let’s meet a Ballerina named Florina and warmup at the barre.

Florina was a ballerina who loved to twirl. Even strangers on the streets asked, “Are you dizzy, girl?”

Spinning three times and ending with a plie, Florina told everyone who’d listen, “I’m going to be a ballerina on stage one day.”

Her favorite class was with the ballerina, Madame Trudeau. It was the day of the week she wore her pink hairbow.

Stretching at the barre and getting lots of praise, she reminded the class their first recital was in five days.

The music began and chill bumps dotted her arms. It was time to dance and show off her practiced charms.

Smiling brightly with her chin up slightly, she pranced onto the stage. For this was her moment to shine as she spun on a dime and judging by the  audience response, clearly amazed.

She was so excited after the show and her dad gifted her with a rose. Not knowing what her parents had in store, they led her into a room with balloons galore.

And to her surprise classmates were waiting, anticipating the look upon her face. Oh me. Oh my. She had completely forgotten, it was her sixth birthday.

Heart full of grace her eyes focused on the cake and she squealed with delight. Closing her eyes to blow out the candles, she whispered giddily, “I wish, I might, remember this night” and her eyes shone bright.

A ballerina on stage on her birthday and a ballerina cake, those three wishes had come true.

In her own little world Florina the ballerina began to twirl. She twirled and twirled…and twirled.

WITHOUT DANCE, WHAT’S THE POINTE?

Mermaid Cake

Mermaid Cake


A free template and time lapse video for this Mermaid Cake tutorial gives the ‘fins up‘ to customize the cake.

Personalize this celebration cake by changing the colors of her eyes, hair and skin tone to make this birthday cake just like her.

‘Cause little girls dream of being and seeing a mermaid.

Raindrops fell from the sky…

It was a rainy day and it wasn’t suppose to be. Tomorrow was her birthday and Sunday she would leave.

Lots of local trinkets glistened in the sand. Bright colored beads made into long seaworthy strands.

Gifts to the mermaids that were known to swim by the shore. Candies and chocolates even a few of her favorite s’mores.

A gust of wind blew the clouds away and on the nearest buoy she saw her first mermaid.

Bedazzled in splendor tapping her tail in rhythm. The lighthouse and the rocks turned into an amazing prism.

Enchanting folklore rode with the wave. The lure of the siren song lifted her heart to be brave.

Mesmerized to swim to the musical sway. Should she go to the mermaid or listen to her mother and stay?

A hypnotic tone came from a sandhill nearby. The mystical mermaid beckoned with a smile.

Dazzling in the mermaid’s hair a sea urchin strand of pearls. Ocean creatures swam around creating sandy swirls.

Relaxing on a pearly pillow inside an iridescent shell, lounged the fashionable diva who knew her so well.

All about the tokens on the beach given to her pods. How the merfolk queen had graciously given the birthday nod.

For the celebration expect a big surprise, the gift will be a trustworthy mermaid in human folk disguise.

The party started and she couldn’t find her mom. And where was the mermaid who promised to come?

Lights dimmed, candles blazed bright and her eyes blinked twice to see. Standing before her was the prettiest mermaid, this day was meant to be.

Gifting a replica Mermaid Cake her heart began to soar and never in her wildest dreams imagined this before.

For all this time she’d never guessed what life had in store. For her Mother was the mermaid, the one she’d always wished for.

Moral of the Story: Birthday wishes do come true and always trust your Mom to do what’s best for you.

Flamingo Shower Cake

Flamingo Shower Cake

Bella knew that she was a little too flamboyant, but she didn’t care. The dream of being on a Flamingo Shower Cake  was known everywhere.

Primping and styling her vibrant feathers took up most of her time.

And  the beauties in the colony kept telling her to eat more algae, plankton and brine.

One sunny day a purple ribbon waved to her in the shallows. She was destined to be here in the lagoon for the ground was hallow.

Wading closer to the bungalows a rain boot floated by the shore. On the beach she found a matching umbrella she simply adored.

To her surprise a golden necklace glistened half hidden in the sand.

And when a loving beak placed the beads around her neck Bella claimed Lingo, her flamingo man.

That’s when she heard the clicking noise coming from the pier. The sound was soothing she had no fear.

With a closer look, the camera came into view. The dream of being on a Flamingo Shower Cake was finally coming true.

Posing and twirling for just the right angle, when the session was over the human asked for her handle.

He loved her style, she was sure to make the cover. She was a flamboyant flamingo like no other.

Bella was enlightened that day.  A lesson she could relate. Looking for beauty in everyday things she became a beauty queen.

And to add to her joy and happiness she’d found Lingo, the flamingo mate of her dreams.

Moral of the story: Just be you. Life isn’t always as it seems. Always smile. And allow your inner beauty to glow. For this is life and it’s your show.

Stand tall. Admire someone else’s beauty without questioning your own.

Unicorn Princess Cake

Unicorn Princess Cake

Everyone has a unicorn, it’s just the matter of tracking her down and this Unicorn Princess Cake comes with a magical GPS. Folklore reveals that only the pure at heart can catch a unicorn. And since you’ve landed here on this page, you meet the qualifications. Featuring a time lapse video this Unicorn Princess will materialize right before your eyes.
The day began as a normal day…. It turned into a magical morning the moment candy sprinkles began falling from the sky. Twirling around with excitement, tasting the sweetness on my tongue, the soothing sounds of  wind chimes flowed though the vibrant leaves nearby. And as I gazed into the crystal clear water, precious gemstones twinkled back at me like stars.  A ruby here, an emerald there and faceted diamonds were everywhere. Entranced in the babbling brook, a meadow came into view.  Lollipops grew big as trees and gumdrops dotted the ground. And when the Unicorn Princess raised her head I didn’t make a sound
I took a step towards her and my feet began to glow and that’s when I noticed over my head was a brilliant rainbow. Keeping time with the chimes the Unicorn Princess began to prance and when the musical beat grew stronger she performed the unicorn dance. When the sound of music stopped she took a graceful curtsey. Stifling  a loud giggle, oh me oh my, she looked so girlie.
The brightness of the day began to fade and all colors turned to grey. And as I watched the Unicorn Princess slowly vanish, my heart filled with dismay. Did she leave because of me? I so wanted her to stay. Oh please, oh please come back to me, it’s my birthday.
With a shake and a hug, a soft voice said, ‘Good morning, it’s time to celebrate.’ But I was in a bad mood, my dreams were smashed and I didn’t want to play. If I didn’t have a Unicorn Princess my friends could come another day.
Walking into the room to oohs and ahs I couldn’t believe my eyes. Bedazzled in all her glory was the biggest surprise. My birthday wish had been granted, the Unicorn Princess was true. I’d been gifted a treasure and I knew just what to do. I’d take lots of photos and share them for years to come. For I’d been blessed on my birthday to see two unicorns. And I’d caught one.

Imagine. Dream. Believe.

The Perfect Cake Hack

The Perfect Cake Hack


My cake life spiraled 180 degrees upon discovering  The Perfect Cake Hack. I’ve discarded the old ways to torte and level a cake.

No more long nights of baking, filling and crumb coating a cake. No more frustrations to achieve sharp edges on a cake. And anxiety wrecking the kitchen, nevermore.

My cake baking life is simply a cake walk journey.

And perfecting a Naked Cake is as simple as 1..2..3.

I’ll let you in on a  little sugar secret. I’ve gone over to Kristen’s Cake Side. She’s super wicked.

Wicked as can be!

Kristen is Wicked Goodies.

Perfect Cake Hack(Click-on to see inside Kristen’s book.)

There are times when God places someone special in your life.

Kristen is one of those amazing people living in the universe. She’s encouraged my sugar art journey and I cannot be more thankful for her guidance.

And once again, Kristen came to my rescue.

Stressed with a five-layered wedding cake, an email arrived into my inbox. A remedy to halt long sleepless nights appeared right before my eyes.

The Perfect Cake Hack!

In that instance, my cake life changed for the better.

My cake life changed FOREVER!

Time spent applying buttercream onto a cake has been reduced. No more cake worries about straight and even sides. And side bulges on cakes covered with fondant and modeling chocolate, nevermore.

Now it’s a relaxing time spent to decorate a cake.

No stress. And it’s easy as 1..2..3.

 The Perfect Cake Hack – Equipment Required

You didn’t think I’d spill all of Kristen’s secrets? Now mosey on over to Wicked Goodies and watch the, ‘New Layer Cake Video Series – Part 2 – Filling and Depanning.’

Here’s the link:

Note: Kristen uses a torch instead of a heat gun to depan cakes. She’s a professional chef with 17+ years of experience in the baking industry.

I stared at the torch for days and never got up the nerve to flick the switch.

Visions of the kitchen going up in smoke. Bangs being crispy fried. And the worse possible scenario flittered around my thinking process.

When I opened the Wagner Heat Gun, I knew that it was the solution to my fear issue.

The heat gun works like a charm.  Easy to use with a high and low heat switch. And the cake depans like a dream.

Thanks for dropping by! The Perfect Cake Hack method will make your life sweeter, one cake at a time. Mosey on over and checkout the Perfect Cake Board Hack.
