Ruffle Cake

I was fascinated when I first saw the Buttercream Ruffle Cake at Call me cupcake! I was very much eager to have my own version. This is an 8 inches dummy cake. It actually looks pretty, I'm just using the worst camera ever. The ruffles on the side are not that difficult, you just need to have your buttercream well formed and set. In here I used Italian Buttercream Meringue, you can find a tutorial in here. The top part is a little bit hard, but I think the cake pulled it off.


I grew up loving pastries, breads and anything sweet. My mom loves to bake, though she never had any formal education (like me). I remember that the first cake she baked is for my birthday. We don't have an oven at that time, so she steamed the cake. But it is was one of the most delicious cake I've ever tasted. My mom learned baking from books and a lot of trials and errors, and I learned a lot from her. However, the world of sweets are so fascinating there are still millions of things I need to try and to learn. Taking into consideration that i just started baking this year. I don't know, I just recently got into baking. But I've always been into cake decorating, the first cake I decorated is when I was 17 years old. I used boiled icing, and the first design I was taught is Wilton's basket weave design.

Anyway, so I started this blog to keep track of my baking and cake decorating. And also because I want to follow my favorite food/cake blogs that are very very helpful and I'm learning a lot from them. Some of my favorites are here. Blogs, books and my mom are the sources of my baking education.

Happy Caking!!

Tinkle Bell Cupcake Tower

Here are some of the picture of my recent creation. A Tinkle Bell themed birthday cake. Each cupcake has the celebrant's picture. The picture lolly (as what I call it) is not edible. I decorated the cake using boiled icing. And I use royal icing for the flowers.

And here are some of the pictures.

My Five Tier Cupcake Tower

My five tier cupcake tower decorated with cute little butterflies.

Transformers Cupcake Tower

I made this cake last December. My friend asked me to do her son's first birthday cake. She specifically wants a five tier cupcake tower. I'm glad that there is a ready made cupcake tower in Divisoria, that place is such a life saver! I covered each cupcakes with chocolate ganache and decorated each with the Transformer's logo using fondant.

Attack tiny Turtles!

I made these really cute turtle toppers for a friend's order. The turtle is made of gumpaste and I use pen with edible ink for the details.

Let's bring in the Chocolate Cupcakes... drool..

To be extra special, let's add some Chocolate Buttercream swirl on top. yum..

And cover everything with white fondant.

Attack Turtles!

Cute right? :) Hope you like it!

Barbie Cake

This is my second attempt in making a Barbie Cake. I think I over designed her gown. Oh well, I enjoyed piping all the details, and I have all the time I need for this one. Everything is edible, except for Barbie. The icing is made off Boiled Icing, we often use this kind of icing because it is the cheapest and one of the most delicious. It also compliments well homemade chiffon cakes with filling.

Here is my first attempt, my mom is the one who shaped the cake here.

Next Barbie project would be Fondant Barbie Cake. I'm exited already!

Spongebob Cupcakes

I made these Spongebob Cupcakes for a little boy's first birthday. For the face I used boiled icing in various color. The teeth are made of gumpaste that I cut rectangularly. But I think I made it a little bigger, my mom even told me that if wasn't yellow it will totally look like Bugs Bunny.

And together with the cupcakes is this 2 layered Spongebob Cake. Also made of boiled icing, the octopus, star fishes, snail and corals are made of gumpaste. Spongebob, Patrick and Squidward are all figurines, so they are not edible, but they are really good for keeps and souvenirs! Hope you like it!

Hello Kitty First Birthday Cake

This Hello Kitty cake is for a little girl's 1st birthday. The cute Hello Kitty character on top is a stuff toy that my mother bought in a department store. The original plan is for me to make a Hello Kitty fondant figure, lying on a stack of pillow with a little girl on her side, I've already imagined what it will look like. But then my mom got me this really cute stuff toy, and I don't want it to go to waste. (Ok well honestly, I thought using the stuffy will be a lot easier. :))

The flowers are made out of gumpaste, same as with the hello kitty heads that are on the top of the cupcakes. And yes, I forgot the whiskers.

I baked the cake myself. It is actually my first time to bake a cake, because my mom usually bake for me. It is a chocolate chiffon cake with chocolate fudge filling. I was really happy with the baking result for it was a success!

I was very bakintusiastic at that time so I also made a small cake and some extra cupcakes for my friends.

Hope you like it!

Happy Caking!


My First DIY Cupcake Stand

I got the idea from This is a project that I'm currently working on. It is for a Hello Kitty cake with some cupcakes on the side. It is for a little girl's 1st birthday. I thought that it would be extra special if the sweet treats are on a pretty and girly cake stand. And I've been really wanting to have this kind of project. It is really easy to make. I'm happy with the result. Hope you like it too!
