Breaking Bad Cake, Mountain Cake and cupcake tower for a wedding.

Wow I don't think I have gone this long without blogging before and I am also beginning to sound like a broken record in my blogs with each one mentioning how I haven't blogged in a while. But that doesn't mean  I haven't been baking. Since my last blog there have been weddings, birthdays and a holiday to Prague as well as now and again, in between novelty cakes, having time to bake for myself.

So here are just a few of the things I have baked and decorated lately:

I  made a breaking bad cake for my fiance, he loves the show and it was the perfect birthday cake complete with 'fake blue crystal meth' made by boiling down clear boiled sweets with a little food colour then pouring onto a tray lined with grease proof paper and then smashing up when hardened. 

Now, Neil's birthday is also just a day before one of my best friends so I also had her cake to make on the same day. She loves hiking and also taking pictures so I made her a mountain cake complete with lake and mini camera. Here it is:

I really don't know why I haven't got better quality pictures of these on my computer. Any way this cake was huge the board itself is a super wide board and for the peak of the mountain I used the top half of my giant cupcake mould then carved into a round cake at the bottom with butter cream between layers at intervals.

In the same week as that I also made a cupcake tower for a wedding with a giant cupcake on top. There was a bit of drama surrounding this cake involving me injuring my hand just before icing, however a lot of pain killers and help from my friend Mandie helped me finish. Anyway here it is:

Another bad quality picture sorry haha.

Any way that's it for today, there are still a few cakes I have made recently, Including 3 very pink ones that I will update with soon. Until then, bye for now
