Thanksgiving Turkey Cupcakes

These little little chaps were made for a friend of mine whose daughter is returning home from the states for thanksgiving.

Only my second attempt at figurative modelling - great fun!

Supporting Breast Cancer Research

I made 48 of these to sell at work on the 'Wear it Pink' day to raise money for Breast Cancer Research.

Vanilla sponge with rose buttercream and fondant.

Sold out by lunchtime!

Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera

What do you give your boss, the man who has everything (including a beautiful Lamborghini Gallardo) for his birthday?

A cake replica of his car of course!

The cake inside is madeira. Carved to shape, covered with vanilla buttercream then draped in orange fondant and brushed all over with yellow lustre dust to replicate the pearlescence of the real car. Then detailed in fondant and colouring paste.

Finished cake was approx 14" long and was a resounding success!
