March cakes, a mixed lot!

One of the cakes I had to make this month is for twin boys with the theme MEXICAN. Instead of making both cakes identical I made them similar but different in colours and pattern. One cake was a white mud with vanilla and white choc buttercream filling, the other was a coconut cake with coconut buttercream.

A simple yet effective cake for a 2yr old, customer wanted something basic and not over the top for her little boy who loves trains.
21st birthday celebration for a young man, the client wanted lime green, red and navy. I custom matched the wrappers and cake stand.
Moroccan cake pops for a bridal shower, colour scheme orange, hot pink and aqua.
Matching Moroccan cupcakes.
and Moroccan cookies.
Then it was time for another ice cream party, so ice cream cookies were on the menu
and this boy version of my ice cream cake.

  2. Busy, busy! Lovely work as usual. xx

  3. I've been lurking as a novice for some time admiring your beautiful designs, but how on earth do you get the patterns on the cookies like the absolutely stunning Moroccan cookie design.

    Again, I am a complete novice, so I would love to start practising this technique for m little boy's birthday

    Any tips gratefully received :-))


  4. Hi Kay, here is the instructions on how to make those cookies, these are Easter but the Moroccan ones were made the same way.

  5. Hi Martha, my name is Sandy and I came across your blog while looking for inspiration for a Mexican themed cake for tomorrow Tuesday! Your cakes are beautiful and I would like to have permission to use your Mexican cakes as my inspiration. Of course I would give you credit for the design once I post my pictures. If it's okay with you and its not too much to ask can you also share with me the technique you used to do the different border on one of your Mexican themed cakes..I can tell that the red stripe is ribbon but how did you do the rest? I hope I'm not asking you for too much...Thanks.
