This Smurfette cake uses a bas relief style–being 3D and 2D at the same time. A custom purse as well as tiara were added to the popular image of Smurfette from the current theatrical release of “The Smurfs”.

Sweet and simple, the client wanted to capture the essence of receiving love letters in the mail. The mail box is actually a mini cake.

Lightning McQueen Tire Cake

Just thought I’d share this simple rendition of Lightning McQueen on top of a tire cake. I wasn’t too particularly concerned with getting the correct contours of the car, although of course, I needed to capture the likeness as this was a very small version of Lightning.

Big Wig Cupcakes

With not much time or visual reference, these cupcakes were created inspired by the big wig cupcakes that appeared in Shrek 4, during Rumpelstiltskin’s cupcake dinner with his witches. I made these for a friend’s daughter birthday get together as a rendition on a more conventional type of princess cupcake.

Tiger Birthday Cake

The tiger figure on top of this cake was custom designed for the client. The client wanted to mix two ideas of a white tiger doll and the characters of the Vancouver Olympics. A custom hibiscus pattern was also applied to the cake using the brush embroidery technique.

Liverpool Soccer Ball Grooms cake

Posted in Cakes on October 20th, 2011 by Brooklyn Cake – Be the first to comment

Often brides want to surprise their fiances with a grooms cake, a cake that has largely fallen out of tradition. The wedding cake is traditionally seen as the bride’s cake although these days we certainly see a lot of grooms partaking in the wedding cake selection process. A popular subject of grooms cake is not surprisingly sports. This is surely not the first time I have been asked to make a soccer (or “football”) cake for an English groom, and it probably won’t be the last.

Ivory Rose Wedding Cake

I had the pleasure of designing and making this wedding cake for a close friend. The cake features cross-hatch patterned tiers alternating with fabric textured tiers. This cake had a little bit of everything the bride and groom were looking for. And of course, it’s always nice to see your work on site.
