My daughter’s birthday became on a competition event Sunday.
I took the club logo.
For the technic you can see the tuto HERE.
They ate it in record time !
For my daughter’s birthday (her nickname is “the mouse”).
White chocolate icing with a little bit of yellow food colouring.
To make gruyere hold : index and little fingers !
Homemade marzipan mices (green like the french song !).

When you buy it, there’s only 30% of almond powder and doesn’t have a good taste.
Though it’s easy and quick to make it.
50 % almond powder + 50 % icing sugar (5.3/7 oz of each).

For my son who likes poker (as all teenagers).
Green marzipan for the mat, pink for the poker chips and white for cards.
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.
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.
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…
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.
Nothing difficult but it’s my son’s favorite animal.
The cake remained small but the children weren’t many.
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.
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).
I loved the pastel sugar confettis.
Almond paste and some smarties.
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).
