Boucakes galore!

I have been super busy with “Boucakes” or cupcake bouquets lately. They have been super popular with my clients which is great because I love creating them.

I have used both American buttercream and Swiss meringue buttercream for the bouquet. The ABC holds its shape really well and gives great definition in the petals while the Swiss tastes amazing but is not quite as sturdy.

I will have details on this site soon in regards to sizes available and pricing, until then just email me at fionapoole@fraap.com for more info.

Mixed Media “Art Cake”

I know I say it all the time but … I LOVED designing and creating this cake, and I think it’s my new favourite!

This was my first try at a cake in a standing frame and it worked a treat! This cake had an airbrushed first layer, then a buttercream palette knife petal layer, and on top of that some modelling chocolate petals. To give the flowers pop I added some sprinkles and gold leaf. Finally I added some cake lace leaves.

Yikes! So sorry I haven’t checked in here for a while. I have still been busy creating but haven’t found the time to post here. I have been fairly active on my Instagram and Facebook pages and you can pop over there and see what I have been up to.

Moving Rubik’s Cube Cake!

I was asked to make a Rubik’s Cube cake last week for a special 8 year old.

A picture of a cake was sent through to me, but I wanted a way to make it more special. Then I had a thought, let’s get it moving!!! I found some great instructions at Enna’s Cake Design and got started.

I was initially a little nervous, but very happy with the result as the cube was moving freely.
