Tom and Jerry

Angie called to order a box of cupcakes for his son's birthday, she heard from Lynn that I had some new designs. :) There will always be new designs in here, and you should always request for a new design for yourself ^^. After going through ideas like cars and football, cartoon characters finally came into picture.

I used to watch cartoon a lot when I was a kid. Besides all the fairy tales (Cinderella, Snow White, Sleeping Beauty...) my other favorites were actually Tom and Jerry, Bugs Bunny, Mickey... Those short series. When my cousin brother came to stay with us when he was going to kindergarten (the one who celebrated his 21st birthday last year), he used to watch Tom and Jerry like everyday - we had these 3 video tapes (yes, was still tapes and not CD or DVD then) of Tom and Jerry which he recycled over and over again....

I'd to say, the cartoon is rather violence, but don't worry, we did not grow up being violent watching this cartoon haha... and it's always Tom who was defeated, poor thing. But one might say it's always Tom who started the chase and he is the big bully, so perhaps the moral of the story is - be kind to the little ones; or don't go being big bullies; or don't look down on small little things as they might possess great damaging power! Haha... Isn't it? Jerry can always lift huge heavy stuff like the hammer, to hit the big grey cat that was more than double it's size.

I didn't mean to make Tom looking defeated, but the cupcake box was not tall enough for Tom to be sitting upright. This position of Tom was in between lurking and lying almost flat defeated, haha... Again, there wasn't much space for Tom to be lying sprawling over so many cupcakes. Peeps... order a big cake for this theme the next time k? ;)

Here's my little Jerry...

Separated them enemies so they won't fight while we are not looking haha... Just kidding. It was purely for spacing arrangement.

Happy 4th birthday to Xin Wei, hope you'd enjoy the cupcakes as much as you enjoy the cartoon series :)

ps. yes, yes... I realized I left out putting toppers on the one behind Jerry. Had done that later by adding a chocolate ball. heh...

Hope it was a blast!

Jacklyn ordered this for her husband's birthday...

Instead of a fully fondant-covered, life size speaker cake, this will be a simpler alternative.

Miniature hifi speakers on cake semi-covered with fondant sugar floorboard.

The wire... which I wasn't sure of the connection, I couldn't get a picture of the back of the speaker on google :p

I saw a pair which looks like this. Why do speakers come in different appearance as such actually? Ohh... the brandname was given by Jacklyn :)

Jacklyn wanted a wood type of material for the speakers

The sugar speakers were on a chocolate cake with milk chocolate icing. The surface of the cake is covered with fondant which assembled wooden floor.

Happy birthday to you "Daddy", hope your birthday party was a blast!

My Precious Princess

Nicky ordered this from me after being recommended by Swee (thanks!!!). The cake was for Nicky's colleague, their princess in the office ^^

The requested toppers were princess tiara and scepter on pillow. Instead of the usual tiara we see now a days for the Miss Universe, I thought of making one that looked like those worn by the princesses in the cartoon, especially like those in the classic cartoons.

So here it is :). This design was also sturdier in terms of structure so definitely won't break when lifted up from the cake during cake cutting.

Tiara and scepter on cake.

The scepter up-close.

A butterfly

The pink and white "diamonds" were not edible. I supposed was okay since this was for the adults.

The tiara surrounded with edible silver balls with added disco dust for the bling bling effect.

My camera was not able to capture the brilliance of the silver and glittery dusts. Too bad :(

The pillow is made of chocolate cake with milk chocolate filling.

Happy birthday Peter! Hope you've had a great time celebrating your birthday with lots of laughter.
