Having Batman on his birthday cake was a must for Tate. I had to search a few stores to find the Batman decorations because I didn’t have time to order the edible image that I wanted. The cake is red velvet.
This is a smash cake for a birthday party. The cake is vanilla and the frosting is yummy vanilla flavored butter cream. The topper is not edible but it works for what I needed. The eyes and mouth are made of fondant and pearl candy.
This Moana cake was made for a birthday party. It’s made with 36 cupcakes, 12 each of red velvet, chocolate, and vanilla. The frosting is butter cream and the flowers and leaves are all hand made with butter cream frosting. The lettering is made of strawberry flavored candy melts.
Using blueberries is a natural way to get a beautiful color frosting. The blueberries also give a very flavorful and fruity taste to the frosting. To make the frosting- I placed about 1/2 cup of blueberries in a small saucepan on medium heat. I added 1 tablespoon of sugar and 1/2 tablespoon of cornstarch and let it simmer until it thickened. I let it cool while I mixed together 1 cup of softened butter, 1 teaspoon of vanilla and 2 cups of powdered sugar and beat until fluffy. I then put the cooled blueberries in a food processor to make a sauce. I added the sauce to the butter mixture and beat until blended. I had previously made the mini flowers and leaves and kept them frozen for use when needed.
These cupcakes were made to celebrate the birthday of a big fan of the warriors. They are vanilla and chocolate cupcakes topped with butter cream and chocolate frosting. I made the toppers using Avery labels and tooth picks.
This basket has red velvet and chocolate cupcakes. The toppers on the chocolate cupcakes were made using the Russian piping tips I purchased from Amazon after seeing them on Pinterest and YouTube. The hardest part is getting the frosting to the right consistency. Once that is achieved, the piping isn’t hard at all. I am still working to mastering the different types of flowers.
