As we approach the last hours of 2011 I thought it would be a nice trip down memory lane if I looked back at all the cakes I did this year and picked out my top 10 favourite ones. Much like how the news channels will do the ‘year in summary’ segment, I present to you my cake year in summary…
Number 10 – This 3D bear was created for teaching… I wanted to make something challenging and all out of cake. I can’t wait to teach this next year 🙂
Number 9 – I just love the colours on this topper, it was based off the invite and is such a fresh approach to the traditional Noah’s Ark theme.
Number 8 – This is one of my favourite wedding cake toppers. It’s so cute and personalised. The couple both met while studying dentistry and I can only assume the bunnies represent a personal sentiment. So, so sweet 🙂
Number 7 – One of the grandest wedding cakes I made this year. I’m personally not a fan of gold but when this cake came together I absolutely loved it!
Number 6 – This cake is one of my favourite wedding cakes. I loved it so much I have it blown up on a canvas 🙂
Number 5 – Because I can’t have a puppy, I decided to make one for my first entry into the Sydney Royal Easter Show. It was just a bonus that I got second prize… I was very flattered!
Number 4 – One of my favourite kids cakes this year. This was made to match the invite and although the design was simple, I just loved how cute it was.
Number 3 – I’m pretty proud of the piping on this cake… mainly because it took me a good 6 hours + to pipe all that detail through a 00 tip. Ouch! It really taught me a thing or two about perseverance.
Number 2 – This cake is just so sweet, cute and romantic! I also think it best represents my caking style. I made so many of those birds this year but somehow I think they work best on this cake.
Number 1 – And finally… The last cake of the year and my current love 🙂 Hours and days went into just the creations and colouring of the flowers. A blog post about the challenge of this cake is coming up soon.
That’s it, my top 10! I had so many more I loved but I had to cut them all out or else this list would have been 3 times as long.
Hope you all are enjoying the last hours of 2011 and are as excited about 2012 as I am. There is so much I want to do and share with all of you. So for now, thank you for your continued support and enjoy ringing in the new year with some bubbly and yummy food!
