Skittles cake


gateau bowling
We took children to the bowling and went back home for pizzas.

One year too late : I had to put the 11th candy onto the bowling ball.

The hardest was to cut 10 skittle in the cake.
Fortunately there were 10 children.

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…).

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…

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…

Detective party invitation


invitation detective
For kids born at the end of the year : I had a cutted phone book for 6 months !
I was caught at my own game, the children didn’t understand why the birthday cake was on the table.
It had not disappeared?

(The agency is hiring new detectives.
Come on saturday the 21th for a mystery : Yves birthday cake disappearance)

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).
