Hannah’s first birthday

It’s been a hot minute since I’ve made macarons. The request was pastel for Hannah’s first birthday. Had to choose foliage to match!

The pink macarons are filled with a mixed berry ganache, green with dark chocolate and green tea, blue with dark chocolate and sea salt.

I love filling macarons with ganache much more than buttercream. It’s rich yet smooth and flavourful.

Baby Vera’s First Month

Embracing simplicity with this clean cake covered with yellow buttercream, and adorned with powder pink and white eustomas. Nothing too lavish, perfect for a little girl’s celebration.

The pink forest flavour (rose, raspberry and pistachio) is sitting under the yellow buttercream.  Would’ve loved to take some photos of it sliced. 

Edric & Xuezhen’s Pancake Stack

I asked them, “Why a pancake stack?”

Well cake is too heavy for a morning solemnization so a pancake stack it is!

This fluffy stack of pancakes is filled with vanilla creme patisserie and dark chocolate ganache. We made a strawberry and raspberry compote and filled a jar with honey to place on the side for guests to take however much they want. I personally like to drench my pancakes with syrup, but that’s just me!

  Deciding on the colors for the couple usually isn’t the easiest task. Everything that you can find on the net is usually pretty much a carbon copy of each other.

I really enjoy creating cakes with whatever I have and with whatever is in season! Many people don’t realize that depending on where you are, what season it is, whether it’s a busy holiday, will give you different flowers. The best possible way to work around this is to choose a colour scheme and not the type of flower, unless you’re willing to pay an exorbitant amount for choice.

That’s the pancake stack! Congratulations to the lovely couple again!
