Bing Bunny birthday cake for a special 2 year old’s birthday

I was asked to make a Bing Bunny cake which meant it was time to tune in the telly and watch an episode or two – with us not having children I’m not always up to date with the current favourite programmes and love it when a cake theme comes along which I need to research!

This cake was made from a 10″ square vanilla sponge cake with a jam and buttercream filling.  The cake was carved into a shape of bunny, with pieces of icing rolled out and cut to size to create Bing.  I used a piece of netting I have in my cake kit to give texture to Bing’s dungarees.  I love making cakes like this, it would be my preference to shape the cake rather than model something for the top of the cake.

Homemade bunting – made to order any colour, design or theme

We have made lots of bunting to order whether it be green and white congratulations bunting, pink and purple butterfly bunting or square flagged minecraft bunting.  We made lots of Christmas bunting with super cute reindeer on and gold bells.

Hours of Fun can design and make the perfect bunting for your room or occasion. We can personalise the bunting with names or messages and make it extra-long or to fit a particular length.
Our standard bunting it approximately 12 flags which equals a length of approximately 2 metres (sometimes varies slightly depending on the design). It can be single sided bunting or double-sided and comes with hoops at each end ready for easy display.
The bunting can be made from material or thick paper/card, with embellishments made from material, felt, buttons, ribbons and much more.

Why not order a matching lampshade to go with the bunting for the perfect gift idea.

 

A special birthday cake for a Justin Bieber fan

This was my first Justin Bieber cake and I wasn’t too sure at the start how it would be done.  I didn’t really fancy modelling him and so I ventured into the world of google and had a look at what others had done.  The most popular choice for decoration was printed rice paper.  Edible, yet its printed – fantastic!  I have long fancied buying a cake printer to then be able to print onto edible paper and then include it in the design.  They are not super expensive but they still cost and I haven’t been able to justify the purchase yet.

However, this was not a problem as you can buy all sorts of printed designs, profiles, messages and pictures on the internet and they were all reasonable in price.  Having never tried this method of decoration I purchased a fantastic, personalised Justin Bieber cake topper for the cake.

Once the cake was iced I placed the topper in position and cut out purple stars to decorate the edge.  Apparently Justin Bieber’s favourite colour is purple so that was the only colour to be used on the cake!   I then decorated the cake with purple musical notes.  I have done musical notes on a cake a few times now which means I can justify purchasing cutters for them, yeay!  I still have a little way to go before I can say yes to the cake printer though!

Happy Birthday Tia.  Hope you had a fantastic birthday and enjoyed eating your chocolate cake.
