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.

Inverted invitation


Invitation inversee
I used a twisted font to make it illegible.
Despite, kids succeeded without a mirror.
I think that was more difficult for their parent…

Football cake


gateau foot
At this moment I realized that pieces of a soccer ball are not so simple (especially in flat).
The finishes are far from being perfect, I had to be in a hurry that day.

Garden cake


gateau jardin
The advantage of decorating a cake with almond paste is that children who don’t like the taste can take it off .
They like pecking sugar balls or smarties (which help to cut the cake in equal shares).

School cake


Gateau ecole
The first one of a (very ) long run of decorated cakes with almond paste.

In that time I found moldings alphabet and numbers in chocolate (I wish I kept those molds).

Doll made with baby’s clothe


grosse poupée
Handmade/Heartmade by my mom.
She took rompers (that she had knit for my son).

My daughter was enthralled by this doll as tall as her.
For a long time « big doll » took away nightmare from my daughter (as she took its « hand » she thought she was not alone in her bed).

Thank mom, she is wonderfull and avoided us a lot of night-awakenings.
