Surprise Coloured Birthday Cake for Alex

Every year I always like to make my work colleagues a special cake or cupcakes for their birthday (or when I fancy baking)! It is normally travel themed due to the area I work in.

This year was no different and I made a super funky coloured birthday cake that had a range of colours inside – blue, pink and cream colour. I then covered the it in the best butter icing I think I’ve ever made with my lovely kitchenaid.

I’ve been baking a bit recently

For some reason, I’ve been in a baking mood lately – this has ranged from cupcakes to bread.  I think it must be the fact it’s starting to get a bit chilly over here makes you want to eat lots of nice warm things and baking reminds me of home!

Below are some pictures of the things I’ve been baking… I have shared most of what I have been baking with work, although the bagels were too good to share!

All I can say is that my flat has been smelling amazing these last few weeks – the time and effort is totally worth it!

I made a Bulldog toy!

I’m not great at keeping up to date with writing posts, however this is something I’m definitely going to work on this year! I have lots of crafty things to share and new projects starting all the time, that I should be able to post at least once every two weeks! I will also be working on my photography skills to take better pictures of my crafts.

The bulldog toys are something I made way before Christmas  2014 as presents for a friend and my brother, however I didn’t give my brother his until I went back to the UK in January. When I saw the pattern for this at a quilt trade show, I knew I just had to get it! My brother and my cousin are always talking about getting a bulldog so knew I could put it to good use!

Cake Pop Course

I went on another cake pop course at The Classic Cupcake Company with my friend to make Cake Pops that we found on one of those voucher sites. I had made cake pops ages ago but they weren’t the best and now know how to make them properly! Cake pops are simply to make and can use left over cake with some buttercream. You roll them into balls and cover in chocolate or icing.

Buttercream Flower Piping Course

A few picture from the Buttercream Flower piping course I went on with my friend at the Classic Cupcake Company in Mosman ages ago! It was a great day and we are doing another course is a couple of weeks to learn how to decorate cake pops.

We learnt about how using different iciy tips create different effects, however wasn’t the easiest thing to learn and something that would take lots of practice before being any good at it (anyone want to be a taste tester? :-p). Continue reading Buttercream Flower Piping Course
