Sofia the First Cupcake



I was inspired by doll cakes that is so popular right now.  I thought it would nice to make miniature versions of them in the form of cupcakes.  The little Sofia dolls are made with fondant.  Her eyes are hand painted using black gel food colouring. The white dot details on her dress are painted on with toothpicks using white gel food colouring.   Sofia's tiara are just 3 silver sugar pearls that I attached using clear pipping gel.

Decorated my cupcakes with a classic swirl pattern and sprinkled it with
white sprinkles or white sugar peals.
Used BBQ skewers to hold the head and torso together for added support and
anchors figurines in the cupcake.  Make sure stick goes all the way down
to the bottom of the cupcake.  Dried the whole set up overnight for easy hair
installation.

The Sofias are ready for their make up.

Using pink pearl dust on Sofia's cheeks to add a bit of colour on her cheeks.
I also brushed a bit of pink pearl dust on her hair, arms and dress.

After painting her cheeks I draw on her eyes using toothpicks.  I like using
toothpicks because it creates thinner lines than edible markers.

then her mouth

I also added some dots on her bodice.

Finished!

LEGO brick cake

Red LEGO brick covered in red buttercream.  Used two 9" square cake pans.   Four nodes are made with cake cut out into 3" circles using 3" cookie cutter.  They are then set on 3" cardboard circles.  Ice all 4 circles. Prepare the square cake and smooth on red butter cream.  Once this is done place the mini round cakes on top of the square cake.

My Bigbang MADE KPOP 40th birthday cake

I don't normally bake my own cake but since I am hitting the big 4-0 milestone I just went ahead and did it.  It was suppose to be a reenactment of the black low riders scene in Bigbang's video Bang Bang Bang well as you can see it never materialized.  I didn't have time to make the black low rider (booOO) so this is my shortcut version.  Maybe next year...
Never too old to be a FANGIRL!!! #vipforever
My inspiration...
Bigbang's "Bang Bang Bang"





Thomas and Percy at Thidmouth Shed

This is Caleb Chase's Thomas and Percy.  The whole things is covered in sky blue buttercream.  Decorated the side of the cake to create a 3D effect.


I find it challenging to create Thomas and Percy's face.  It took me
a couple of tries to get the face that I wanted.  Even at this point their
faces needed a little more tweeking.
