Little Man Cake

Image
I am just too excited about today’s post!  Over time, I’ve been dreaming of making a cake like this. This theme works great with baby showers, 1st birthday’s and even an older boys birthday party. 




So to follow the theme we made a Little Man mustache & bow tie cake. We iced this 2 tier cake with teal and white fondant to great with a bow tie and also added mustache on the top tier with the boys name just above it. The birthday boy’s age (ONE having a hat on the 'O' and mustache on the 'E') was used has a topper for this cute themed cake that everyone would love.




This adorable Little Man cake is perfect for your little gentleman (complete with future mustache)! Are you having a gender reveal party, pregnancy reveal party, birthday party, or baby shower? This cake will add that extra dapper touch to your party! With such character, everyone will comment on how cute the cake is. A perfect decoration for your special event!

Vanilla Buttercream Frosting Tutorial

Image
So I decided to share this buttercream frosting tutorial.
Buttercream is a classic frosting recipe most commonly used to frost cakes. It is creamy, buttery and easy to use. 


INGREDIENTS (By Terry Adido of Grated Nutmeg):
(1) 113 Grams Unsalted Butter (1/2 Cup)
(2) 113 Grams Shortening (1/2 Cup) (See Note 1)
(3) 460 Grams Confectioners Sugar (4 Cups)
(4) 2 to 4 Tablespoons of Milk. (See Note 2)
(5) 1 Teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract
(6) Food Colour (Optional)

NOTES:
(1)  You can use all butter, all shortening, or any combination of both. If using butter, it should be at room temperature. Take it out of the fridge at least 30 minutes before you intend to make the frosting. While the butter gives this frosting a creamy buttery taste, the shortening provides the structure it needs to stay at room temperature.
(2) The quantity of milk you use will ultimately depend on how firm you want the frosting to be. It is best to start with 2 tablespoons and add more if you need to. You can use whipping cream in p…

DRY FONDANT PANELING

Image
This post is the summarized tips on how to make dry fondant panels

As the name implies, dry fondant panelling is the method in which the sides of cakes are covered with dry fondant panels. The dry panelling method is used for cakes with sharp angles like boxes or cubes. It involves making the fondant panels ahead of time, leaving them to dry and then sticking them to the sides of the frosted cake. The dry fondant panels could be stuck directly on the frosting or you could drape the cake with a layer of fondant before placing the panels.

Below are a few tips for successful dry fondant paneling: i. The panels need to be made ahead of time ii. Before cutting the panels, you must have an idea of the measurement of your cake tier, especially the sides and height of the cake. iii. The panels should always be bigger than the cake tier. iv.
