Durian Cake for MIL

Now is the durian season, my mother in law bought a lot of durian and she even peel off all the durian meat for me to make durian cake. Since her birthday is round the corner, I made a durian cake for her.

Chocolate Banana Cake

After the durian basket weave cake, I did another similar cake but in different flavour, it's chocolate banana cake. This time the cake was for my husband's lady boss. Hope she like it.

Durian Cake for My Mum

Finally got enough durian to make the durian cake for my Mum this weekend. Decided to practise my basket weave and roses this time. This is the first time I'm using whipped cream to do the roses. As I have a warm hands, I really have to work fast if not the cream will start to melt.

New Year Cake

This year, we had a count down party at my husband's friend house. So I decided to make a black forest cake for the party. A very simple cake and everybody enjoyed it.

Basketweave Cake

After eating the cake that I made for my daughters' birthday, my husband's friend order a small cake for his wife birthday. Since it's for his wife, I decided to make a basket weave cake for her. At the same time, also practise my skill.

Mini Tier Cake

A lot of my friends can't make it to attend my daughters' birthday party. But we don't want to miss the chance of having a gathering. So on the following weekend, we had another celebration for my elder daughter, which is her actual birthday.

I made a mini tier cake for that day, a 6" and 4" cake. Can't remember the flavour but overall everybody like it.
Note : This is the cake that I did last year. Now have to start thinking for this year cake.

Princess Cake for my 2 daughters

After attending the Cake Decorating Course last year, I decided to make the birthday cake myself for my daughters. Saw the Debbie Brown's book in the library. so decided to make something like it for their birthday. However, I need to do some practise before the actual one.  Bought the small Barbie doll and make a trial cake.

Of course on the actual day, can't have this small little cake for all my guests. Below is the actual one and much bigger version of birthday cake for them in last year.

Princess Cake

Last weekend, I promise my Mum to make her a durian cake. However, I didn't have enough durian. Instead, there are 3 mangoes in my fridge. So change to make a mango cake.

Initially, I wanted to decorate the durian cake as a durian but since now I change to make mango cake, it's not logical to decorate it to look like a durian. So I decided to make a princess cake. The idea came from Debbie Brown's book.

Here, the picture of my princess cake.

Wilton Cake Decorating Course 4

In Course 4,  a new icing was introduced to me. It's called gumpaste. Both fondant and gumpaste are similar, except the later one will turn hard after drying. Thus it is very suitable to use to mould figurine or flowers.

Below is a picture of my cake decorated in Course 4.

Wilton Cake Decorating Course 3

In Cake Decorating Course 3, I have learn to use fondant to decorate cake. Cake decorated with fondant is very fun and the effect is beautiful. It's like playing playdough, but of course fondant is edible. Again my husband don't like it cos it's super sweet also. Though, people always feel off the fondant before eating. But he just don't like it. Sigh......

Beside using fondant to decorate cake, I have also learnt to make tier cakes. You cake used pillars, or use dowel rods to make tier cake. It's really interesting to know how to construct the tier cake like what outside cake shop do.

Below is the cake that I had decorated in Course 3.

Wilton Cake Decorating Course 2

In Course 2, I get to know what is Royal Icing and how was it made. It's really easy to make, except it's super sweet. We can use royal icing to pipe different type of flowers, then dry it and keep it for future use. It may come in handy when decorating cakes.

Since royal icing is mainly use to pipe flowers and dry it, thus the final cake is really a basket with full of flowers. Below is a pictuure of my final cake.

Wilton Cake Decorating Course 1

All along I like to bake and decorate cake myself. Last year, I have seek my husband permission to relief myself for some time off to go for the Wilton Cake Decorating Course. I am so happy that he agreed to it and even sponsor me to the course.

Below is the cake that I have decorated for my Wilton Cake Decorating Course 1. A pity is my husband don't like the frosting. It is super sweet buttercream. After taking the pictures, I have actually scrape off all the frosting and re-do it using whipped cream.
