Magazines box


Boites magazines
By making it yourself you can fit it to your magazine.

Some cardboard and black vinyl.
I copied the magazine titles on the spine of the boxes with a holographic vinyl.

Monster cake


Gâteau monstre
Maybe you know the comic “Kid Paddle”.

As always, marzipan (green for the body, pink for the tong and white for the teeth and the eye).

Some pustule/smarties and you’ve got the monster.

Leopard box


Boite leopard
I tried decopatch craft, that didn’t please me.
I made this jewell box for my daughter.
A little piece of quilted fabric at the bottom, covered with satin (yes, I have never finished the back of the cover).

Celtic box


Boite celtique
Every child needs a mess box (for candy sticks, kinder toys, shells and stones).
This shoe box was clean and had a hinge.
I cut a celtic design, stucked a white paper under the cover and put a nice vynil : it’s unrecognizable.

Rolling party invitation


Invitation fleurs
A little bit fragile.
What a pity, I had made a cake with the same flowers but I can’t find anymore the picture of it (I told my man we have lost some datas but he doesn’t believe me…).

Genealogical house


Maison genealogique
For my mom’s birthday.
The hardest was to obtain a recent picture of everyone.
I went into a photocopy shop to print it onto a A2 paper (16.5″x23.6″).
I used an architecture software, I wish I knew  Photoshop…

My parent’s house has also shed dormers, but not so much windows !

Dragon cake


Gateau dragon
Again almond paste.
The dragon is drawn with melt chocolate (very useful to keep the Vahiné frosting pen when it’s finished : cut the bottom, clean it and use it with your own frosting).

For the drawing tuto click HERE.

Some chocolate powder spread with finger to highlight the dragon.

The little story of this cake : we ate it and then I realized I didn’t take a picture of it !!
My son was delighted, few days after I made another one and I didn’t forget the picture…

Film strip collage frame


Pele mele
For the 10th birthday of my daughter.
It looks like a film strip. Made with plexi, black and white adhesive vynils.
A quick glance to 10 years in a blink of an eye… (yes I know, there’s not the 10th picture, what does it mean Mr Psychologist ?).

Heart shaped cake


gateau coeur
The picture is very bad. I can’t find a better one.

The year I discovered liquid food coloring.
I had fun making coloured powder sugar. I use it to stripe the heart-shaped cake.
With the rest of the colored sugar it was funny to eat psychedelic yoghurts.

Dolphin cake


gateau dauphin
Nothing difficult but it’s my son’s favorite animal.
The cake remained small but the children weren’t many.
