Made this dragon cake for Ern Xuan who was born in the year of 'The Dragon'.... This is 'Western' dragon, different from 'Chinese' dragon I made for CNY (click link her to view Chinese dragon made early this year)

Last year I made a Hello Kitty with Swan for Jazreel (Clicke here to view the picture). When she was 1, she had a PM theme castle (click here to view the picture). Wish to thank Jazreel's mom for the trust she has on me to leave overall design to me for all these years. I came out with the idea of having castle behind the princesses which the overall design will be something different from the 1st year old birthday cake. Princesses are toys provided by Jazreel's mom.

Remember there is a scene in the movie where Master Wugui talked to Shifu at the rock mountain and he later disappeared? Having that in mind and recall there was a tree... ta-da, this is what I came out with for this Kungfu Panda theme cake for Angus
Angus mom provided the Panda. She left the overall design to me, cake size is 10"+6" round cakes (I carved the cake to rock shape and slope as F left it to me to do anything I deem is fit for the design). After I received the Panda (glad that she gave me much earlier as the Panda toy was not able to stand on its own), and I added the freehand moulded Tigress and Shifu. Love how the moulded figurines especially Tigress and the tree. This is my first experience in moulding this theme figurines and coincidentally Angus's previous cake was also my first time moulding for Handy Mandy theme (click link here to view the previous cake picture).

Last year Tricia had a 'Sweet Pink Elmo cake' (click link here to view the picture), this year Tricia's mom requested for Barney theme cake. She leaves the design to me and mentioned that the cake need not be round shape (meaning I can do anything I feel is fit for the design). I tried to have the cake colour requested though she did say that leave that to me too :) Carving cake required more time to do, and more chocolate ganache and fondant needed..... that's why generally it will costs higher for carved/sculptured cakes.
Back to this cake, I got to see Tricia the sweet little girl again.... Happy Birthday Tricia!!!

Met Gloria and she pointed at the cake and said 'Barney!'. Am really happy that she can recognise the characters (it means a lot to me and confirm I didn't fail in making them, hehe)..... Gloria is such a cute and pretty girl. Thanks for making my day girl :) Hope you have great time in school. Happy Birthday!!!

I was not able to made Gabriel's cake last year due to other cake commitments, instead I made a moulded Barney for Gabriel's auntie to put on the cake (Gabriel's dad told me that the auntie agreed to make the cake later on), click here for the moulded Barney picture. Click here for Gabriel's 1 year old cake with Pocoyo theme (link to the cake).
This year I received email from Gabriel's dad few months ago and he told me those characters Gabriel likes .... I have invested many hours in preparing this cake, time spent is well worth it as I myself like this cake very very much especially the Buzz lightyear and Woody (my first time making them...very pleased with the outcome).

Last year Talia had Barney theme for her birthday (click here to view last year's cake picture). This year I was asked to make same Barney theme as Talia likes Barney very much.... I also noted that Talia likes swimming. Cake size is equivalent to 8"+6" round cakes (instead of made the cake round shapes, I carved the cake and made buckets using cake since Talia's mom leave design as well as cake colour to me....).

This is a mini two tier cake which I don't normally make (7"+4" round cakes). Wish to thank Vanessa's mom for her trust to leave everything to me, she is fine with any shape/tier cake and saying the theme can be Carebear or Doraemon or anything...(she leaves that to me).... Since I have time, I put in those extras as complimentary :)

Made this cake last week.... Did Disney car theme cake for Joshua's brother (ie Cayden) in May 2012 (click link here to view Cayden's cake). It's really nice of Joshua's mom to leave the entire design to me from cake colour to design (was only told that the theme should be F1 and Joshua likes Red Bull team). Since the brother's cake is red, I thought I shouldn't have the whole cake red then....

I enjoy making cakes for Lucius as his mom is really very easy going and encouraging.... always wanted to add extras for their cakes (this year I added extra Kailan and friend. Was requested for either Ferris Wheel or Kailan theme, I combined both themes). Lucius's 2nd birthday was Thomas theme (click here to view the picture & I volunteer to make 3D Thomas) and 1st birthday was Safari theme (click to view the picture).
Happy Birthday Lucius!!

This cake is specially decorated for my friend's daughter EDNA. I didn't bake the cakes. My friend sent her cakes over to my place. The rest (from covering the cakes, moulding figurines, added extra details) were all done by me. A very tall and heavy cakes when it's done. All I know is I spent many hours on all the details. Don't think I have the energy and time to do the same design again... by the time I finished the whole cake, I was tired and exhausted, haha... age is catching up.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY EDNA!!

Made Ryan Sister's cake a week before (click the link here to view her cake) and now is Ryan's 7th Birthday. All I was asked is to have a Lego City vehicle and Lego Men. Since I am free to do anything on the design and no restriction that the cake must be in one piece square/rectangle shaped, hence I decided to make a few lego blocks cakes. Now who wants to play lego with me :)

I was asked to make a Princess figurine on top tier cake with favorite colour pink/white/silver; also was told not to have castle nor garden theme for this cake. Since the overall design is left to me and I have time to make the extra princesses, (have added the two princesses on cake board). Initially I was thinking of carving the top tier to pillow shaped but on second thought since I do not have any green light to carve the cake, I did not go ahead with this thought. Overall I am happy with how the whole cake turns out :) and most importantly Kayleigh Mae's family likes it :)

Angry Birds, Thomas train & McQueen for twins Ryan and Sean. Cake size equivalent to 10"+8"+6" round cakes (for the cake below, I baked the cakes in different sizes but same amount of cakes used). Carved the cake a little. Can you see the 3D tunnel that Thomas train coming out from :)

Last year Zi Shan had Barney theme cake (click here to view the cake). This year she wanted an Angry Bird theme cake with either pink or purple colour and must have Rainbow. I carve the cake a little bit to have a higher ground for the pigs to sit on :) Met Zi Shan (a very shy and weet girl) last week when she came with daddy and mummy to collect the cake.

Zaahid's mom told me all she wanted is dinosaurs theme and she said I can do anything with the cake. I moulded the dinos bigger than usual size figurines. Instead of stacking up all three cakes I decided to carve the cakes and create a scene as if the dinosaurs are running away from the volcano. Cake size is supposed to be 10"+7"+5" round cakes but I upsized it to 10"+7"+6" round cakes. Thank you "R" for the butter cookies and chocolate :)

Eiffel's mom requested for Eiffel Tower on top tier cake (to represent the son's name) and a Thomas train to celebrate Eiffel's full month celebration. Made Piglet with Heart for Eiffel's sister, Adele, last year (click here to view the Piglet picture).

Anyone spotted something missing on this Thomas Tank? I didn't realised when I took the picture... I discovered this only after I looked at the cake picture again and oopss.... missed out the little details at the front of the thomas cake (ie on red stripe... guess it is so small that can go without notice, haha). I have added the details before Josiah's mom came to collect the cake this morning (sorry did not take a fresh picture to reflect the additional details added).
Forgot to mention, Josiah's mom wanted it like the previous 3D carve Thomas train I did for Lucius.

Honeypot and Tree Stump are cake. Figurines were freehand moulded. My friend was asking me why I starve Pooh..... (I shall feed Pooh more next time, hehe). Cake size equivalent to two 7" round cakes. Eeyore is my favourite, and I like to make him looks happier (unlike his usual look ....)

When I was told about this theme, I was totally clueless who they are until I did a search on internet..... I really enjoy myself when moulding those veggie characters, they are really cute. Have incorporated STARS on this cake as Ethan likes stars too :)
