tom and jerry cake

oh boy, oh boy!
this was a tricky one, and I redid a few of the things, but it was only my first attempt at this one. next time I'll do it better:))
Never the less, I am quite pleased with the result.

The cake was inspired from a book by Debbie Brown, I'll post the instructions some time next week, when I'll have more free time.

sleeping beauty cake

Another doll cake, only this time the sleeping beauty.
I made it for a friend's daughter. I'm told she loved it!
Happy birthday Jemima!

kids cakes

Lots of detailed work went into this one, but not into my camera shots:)
I was in a hurry and did not take detailed pictures, unfortunately. Maybe there will be a next time for this one.

and this was a cake designed by the little one herself. I was given the most specific instructions of how to make this cake, from colors to shapes, therefore she should get credit for this cake. I just made it happen for her, no input of my own into this one.
Happy birthday Alessia!

coffe mug cake

My friend and neighbor, Samira, took this cake as a gift to a friend's birthday party. She asked me to make a coffee cup. I like how it turned out. The writing was also as per her request. Wish I had a plane orange plate to put the cake on, would have looked a lot better. Next time I get a similar request I'll be sure to shop for the same color as the cup plate. It will make it look more real.

16th year old cake

This is the cake I did this Wednesday, for a 16 year old.

And this is the final version with a "diva like" feather boa around the base of the cake.

two special cakes

Last Saturday two long time friends of ours celebrated their wedding and the Christening of their handsome son.
As you can imagine, my gifts were THE CAKES!

This is the cake I did for their wedding. The bride chose the filling, which was wild berries yogurt mousse, and gave me total freedom with the design. How often do you see that? I kept it a total surprise, just told her it wouldn't be something classic.

It took me 7 hours to decorate it. The cake had 4 tiers and I used 4.5 kg of white chocolate to make all those chocolate fans,but seeing the the bride's eyes when they brought the cake, made it all worth it. She was a lovely bride and she deserved a lovely cake.
Congratulations Norina & Vali!

I am going to post more pics from the wedding itself once I get the pics. I left my camera in the car:)) boy am I lazy!!! right?

For their son, DARIUS, I made this cute two tire, chocolate and fondant decorated, cake.

check out this cutie!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is CARINA, the beautiful daughter of a good friend of ours. I made her 3 cakes for her birthday and I just received some adorable pics with her and the cakes, that I immediately wanted to share with all of you.
Isn't she gorgeous? I'm missing a cake, but these will do just fine.
Please enjoy!

Aceasta este CARINA, frumoasa fetita a unor vechi si buni prieteni. I-am facut 3 torturi anul acesta pentru ziua ei, si am primit poze adorabile cu ea si torturile, pe care vreau sa vi le arat si voua, cu permisiunea parintilor bineinteles. Nu m-ai gasesc o poza dar e bine si asa:).

Christening cake for a little girl

cakes for girls

As you can see it's all about girls with me. I love doing cakes for them. Pretty scared of boy's cakes:) Can't do them right. Next week I have to do my first spider man cake !!! ... and I am already trembling.
Stay tuned for more cakes for girls from this weekend. I'll post some more later on.

Dupa cum se vede, din nou torturi pentru fetite. Ador sa fac torturi pentru fete. In schimb mi-e cam frica de cele pentru baieti. Nu prea imi ies cum mi-ar place. Weekendul viitor am de facut primul meu tort spiderman! si deja incep sa tremur:)
Mai reveniti si pentru alte torturi de fete din weekendul acesta. O sa mai pun cateva poze mai tarziu.

caterpillar cake

This is my first caterpillar cake. It came out huge! I had to use two boards for it.
The result was a very colorful and cute caterpillar, fit for a 4 year old sweet girl.

Primul meu tort omida. A iesit foarte mare. A trebuit sa folosesc doua platouri pentru acest tort.
Rezultatul a fost foarte colorat si dulce, potrivit pentru o micuta de 4 anisori.

pirate bear cake

I was given this photo and asked to make a cake in the same shape.
Weekendul trecut am trebuit sa fac un tort dupa aceasta poza.

This is how I did it. I chose to do only the head out of cake, since only 20 slices were need. I was very happy with the result.
Si acesta este tortul care l-am facut eu. Am facut doar capul tort, doar 20 de portii erau necesare. Sunt incantata de rezultat. Sper sa va placa si voua.

high school musical cake

Another High school musical cake. Girls seem to love this theme. My daughter too. I had to print the photos twice, so that she could have them as well.
Un alt tort cu tema High school musical. Fetelor le plac mult. Inclusiv fetitei mele, care m-a facut sa mai scot o data pozele la imprimanta ca sa le aiba si ea.

snow white cake

This cake was bitter cherry yogurt mousse, decorated in fondant. The mummy wanted snow white on a flat cake. So this is what I came up with. I printed out a snow white coloring page and guided myself with it.
The birthday girl and her kinder garden friends loved it. Happy birthday CARINA!

Acest tort a fost un mousse de iaurt cu visine, decorat in fondant. Mamica a vrut tortul plan. Am scos la imprimanta o pagina de colorat cu alba ca zapada si m-am ghidat dupa ea.
Sarbatorita a dus acest tort la gardinita. A placut tuturor copiilor. LA MULTI ANI CARINA!!!

chocolate decorating how to

Bueno chicas, finalmente tengo tiempo para sentarme y escribir.
Esto es para todas vosotras, las que me seguiis y hablais el espanol.

Angeles me pedia receta para la tarta decorada en chocolate y despues de contestarle ad ella en los comentarios pense de compartir con todas vosotras unas paginas de un libro de decoracion en chocolate, que es mi unica fuente para aprender trabajar el chocolate. El libro esta in ingles,espero que os aclarareis y que os ayude igual que me ayudo a mi. Si teneis algunas preguntas me podeis esbribir.

I finally have time to sit down and write. I had 3 very busy weeks, work, cakes my daughter so I did not spend much time on my computer. But today I have time, although i have two more cakes to finish.
Because Angeles asked for a recipe after seeing my chocolate decorated cake, I wanted to share with you a few pages from a chocolate decorating book so that you can see how I make my chocolate decorations. This book was my only source for learning this technique. I hope it helps you like it helped me.
