“wedgewood blue…” was the colour the bride wanted for her croquembouche. I tried my best to match the exact shade of blue and I think it got pretty close. It’s not always easy to achieve a particular colour in pastry work since food colours are limited and sometimes the base is not white.
I like to work with pastel shades. Not only is the result elegant and pretty, it also uses less food colour. I get requests for strong colours occasionally. Like a black fondant cake or a red one. If you ever attend a party with a cake of such strong colours, I suggest you skip eating the fondant covering. The amount of food colouring that goes in there, hmm…

This cake was ordered as a gift for 2 little girls’ birthday – with a princess theme. And butterflies. Everything you see on this cake is handmade and edible. The tiara and butterflies are painstakingly made using piped royal icing left to harden. A few extras had to be made since they are extremely fragile. I don’t think the tiara made it to anyone’s head!
A variation of the popular Petite Bow Cake, this one is in a gorgeous blue topped with a pom pom bow. The sides of the cake has a fan like pattern with a sugared surface for an added sparkle effect. Simple and very pretty! I imagine this looking good for a wedding luncheon too.
I’ve always wanted to get a chance to make some fondant bees. They are soooo cute, don’t you think? I’m sure little Kate will like them too.
I was thinking, ladybugs should be cute too. What else? snails? Butterflies, maybe certain caterpillars. Though in real life, these insects cause me some grief. I thought the yellow butterflies in my garden were pretty until I found loads of green caterpillars on my plants and munching much of my plants away. Not so cute!
A two tier fondant chocolate cake fit for a princess!

My new creation – Cacao 55
Made with high quality Valrhona chocolate 55%. Layers of rich dark chocolate mousse with super moist chocolate sponge and a crunchy feuilletine praline layer. A must try for chocolate addicts.
Opt for Cacao 70 for a more intense chocolate flavour (made with 70% Valrhona chocolate).
17 cm square cake (~2kg) – SGD 60
A variation of the Charlotte – strawberry mousse with lemon mousse surrounded by sponge fingers and generously topped with mixed berries. It’s a lovely combination – light tart lemon with smooth strawberry and vanilla sponge in between. It’s my housemate’s favourite and I’m making 3 tiers of it for his wedding!
You can’t stop at 1 slice.
