To be honest, I've never watched the movie "Star Wars" so I had no clue who's who..
The cake made me study about characters of Star Wars & Star Wars Lego..
The character I made is Yoda, Darth Maul, Darth Vader & O Be Wan Kenobi. I had fun painting lego figurines.. As soon as I started painting each character, it looked more and more like lego figurines.
It's 8inch chocolate cake filled with chocolate ganache which is my favourite.
I hope James had lots of fun at his birthday party with his friends. Over the past few years, I've made his cakes and found his favourite characters always changing. His second birthday cake was Disney cars and he had the Toy story cake for his third birthday. Now, he's more into "Boy-ish stuff" How amazing!
My daughter's into Snow White lately and it's no surprise to see her changing her mind in a few weeks to Elsa(again!) or Sleeping beauty,etc. She wanted to have Frozen cake for her fifth birthday (still long way to go..) before but now she wants Snow White cake so I better be ready for every possible chance my daughter might feel like until her birthday next year. It's the beauty of kids..They love everything!
Happy 5th Birthday,James !!

My nephew turned 1 year-old and I made him this cute air plane cake. I found similar designs like mine and It looked very popular and so adorable & perfect for Myles' birthday. Besides, you can not go wrong with sky blue & red colours together. I love love love the colour combination..anything could be forgiven even if you make a little mistake;)
It's a 6-inch chocolate cake filled with citrus lemon butter cream. I extended the height of the cake a little bit more (added another layer of the cake) than usual.
I also made red velvet cupcakes for Myles. I love preparing cupcakes for any kind of dessert tables because my guests can take it home with them.
I was so glad that everybody loved the cake and cupcakes and by the time the party was over, they were gone!
People sometimes asked me, " How can I cut the cake? It's too cute to cut it!"
but trust me, it's even better after you cut it..
Happy 1st birthday, Myles;)

I was so excited to make this farm animal themed cake for Frederick's 1st birthday. It's always fun to try new theme like this farm animal cake especially when I have freedom to design it.
It's 9 inch dairy & soy free chocolate cake filled with vanilla dairy soy free cream. I made all sugar figurines (a little pony, duck, sheep, chicken and baby boy etc.) by hand.
I feel so blessed that I could create Frederick's 1st birthday cake which would stay with him forever in his photo album.
My daughter sometimes talks about her past birthdays by reminding cakes she had.
"I had Dora cake for my 4th birthday. Can I have Elsa cake next year,please? PLEASE?!"
One of my favourite things to do (since my beautiful daughter was born) is to scrapbook all of my kid's photos. I just don't want to miss this cute little face every day and she eventually will grow bigger and bigger...
I've been making her photo album(I guess it's a life project!) and make sure I have her birthday pictures with special cakes I made for her so she doesn't miss anything even though her memories might fade away over times as she grows up.
That's why I loooove what I do.. My cakes can be a part of someone's precious memories.
Happy 1st birthday, Frederick..
