What’s Bakin’? #4

Goshhh, I absolutely ADORE this set, I just had to show you guys the making of it!!!

Normally I don’t talk much about my bakes or how I do it anymore, coz well, I do it almost everyday and this isn’t all that new to my readers but this cake is really special. Hands down my #1 favourite creation because it was sooo much fun to decorate and because of the sheer difficulty and brilliance, lol!

Following few pics were taken with iphone as we only had 4 hours to complete this cake and 24 similar cupcakes thus the horrible quality, but we have awesome pictures later on in the post!

Frosting the naked 2 tier cake! The bottom tier looks really messy / crumby coz we had to cut it into half to put cream in the middle, and well let’s just say… most home made cakes are a NIGHTMARE to frost because of all the crumbs everywhere. e_e

Crumbs and melted / clumpy buttercream, my worst fears.

Sitting in the fridge so the cream takes shape and hardens up, easier for us to work with. This was actually so much fun to do, only took 10 minutes, usually when we frost cakes it’s METICULOUSLY difficult but this was a breeeeze thanks to the intentionally random patterns.

I wish all cakes were like this!! It may not look that impressive now but just you wait and see…

Adding sand!!!

Can you guess what it will be?! :D

Painstakingly handcrafted fondant decorations. Hai my little sea creatures fwends! *tickles*

Ready to see the final product???????

In other news…

Less impressive cupcakes and cakes that would probably pale in comparison to the epic cake above, but, still cute to look at nevertheless. :P

Winnie the pooh cut out cake! With Shiberty’s Sweets signature rainbow interior ^.^

It may only be about 8″ wide but it’s really tall!!!! Can you say value for money? Lol

Fondant flowers :)

As you know, I’m not a fan of fondant, but you can’t deny it’s unique texture and flair it adds to cakes, so I indulge in it once in awhile. (and ONLY once in awhile it’s a strict rule I will swear by!)

He said, “looks like something you’d find in a korean shop.”

Cat Physics!!!! Love this iphone game.

If you haven’t played it before you should download and try I think there’s a free version, kept me entertained for many nights. Nothing like some therapeutic iphone games before bedtime.

Used to think he was really annoying but I like him when he’s not talking or moving and sitting on top of a cupcake ready to be eaten. LOL


With love, from Shiberty’s Sweets!
