Harry Potter cupcakes

A friend ordered a HarryPotter cupcakes for her son who is a big fan of the series.  12 pieces of chocolate fudge cupcakes with chocolate ganache.  This was my first theme cupcakes and I had great time doing this.  To be honest, I am not fond of red fondant, after adding so much gel, it tends to be a bit more softer than the other colours.  But nevertheless I was happy how the red came out.  Now I have to think of ways to use up the balance coloured fondant :D

Mosque Cake for a wedding gift exchange

My aunty called me about a week before her wedding and asked me if I can make her a cake as a gift exchange.  Of course I was delighted and took the chance to play with fondant again *LOL* She didn't say what she wanted and left everything to me to decide.  After much thought, I decided to do a mosque cake which I think was the most appropriate to give to her then husband to be.  I like things that are simple and so came up with this.  This is not entirely my creation as I got the inspiration from a box that is shaped as a mosque.  I scaled it down and finally end up with this.  As I was running out of time, I used styrofoam for the dome :-P  Overall I was pretty pleased and glad that they loved it... including the cake *LOL*

My youngest daugther's tiara cake

This cake was done November last year. The initial plan was to order a Rapunzel cake from a friend so that I can be relief of some baking. However, my youngest decided to change her plan and wanted a tiara cake badly. She kept insisting until I had to say yes. This is a simple chocolate cream cake with peace filling. The tiara and all the other decors were made of chocolate/candy melt so that her friends can eat them. The tiara was the most tedious part as it broke when I was putting it on the cake. Fortunately, I had some melted chocolate left and fix it nicely. To hide the imperfection of the tiara, I had it covered with lustre dust *phew*
