Never ones to turn down the chance to eat ice cream in the name of research, we naturally jumped at the chance to help the guys at Cornetto with this birthday gift for Perrie from Little Mix. This decadent beast of a cake, based on a Choc Caramel Crunch Cornetto, is two tiers of rich chocolate and caramel sponge, covered in caramel buttercream and ganache, piled high with all kinds of ice cream related trappings. Now that the work is done, we probably deserve another Cornetto… right?
If you don’t have a child (or you aren’t) under the age of 12, you probably don’t know who the Octonauts are…. but even if you don’t, you can’t deny that they’re pretty cool dudes. What’s not to love about anthropomorphic animals who live under the sea and go on rad adventures? Nothing! Here’s some super cute Octonauts themed cupcakes we did for a, you guessed it, Octonauts themed birthday party!
We’re no stranger to Dinosaur Cakes here at C&D Towers – we’ve had many requests for all things dinosaur, and for us, it never gets old. This birthday cake, for Jurassic enthusiast James, is our favourite yet! Each tier is hand-painted and adorned with cut-out, painted sugarpaste Dinos. We especially love the intrepid little Jeep, rather alarmingly positioned between an active volcano and a hungry T-Rex…
Everybody loves Minions, right? Well I don’t think anybody loves them more than Tristan, who may have broken a world record for “Most Minion Cakes at a Birthday Party” this weekend!
Here’s some fun American Football Cupcakes we did for Max and Matthieu’s 9th Birthday, complete with sugarpaste trophies, chocolate footballs and buttercream grass. Happy Birthday boys!
Here’s a closer look a very cool Marine Biology inspired cake we did this weekend! We’re not sure about you, but personally we find sharks a little more er… palatable, when they’re of the sugarpaste variety!
Here’s a look at a double-stacked version of our Ombré cake that we did for Anaya’s birthday, last week. With layers of Ombré Vanilla sponge, this buttercream cake is finished with cascading polka dots and a ridiculously cute hand-made tea set! Happy Birthday Anaya!
It’s no secret, we love Mini Cupcakes. Not just because you can eat at least four without feeling guilty. OK maybe that is the main reason, but we also love how great they look, however they’re decorated. Here’s a look at some of our favourite Mixed Mini selections from the last week…
Everybody loves our Ready to Order Piñata cake, but sometimes you need something a little more special than your garden-variety birthday cake! Here are a couple of fun manifestations of the humble Piñata that went out of C&D Towers this weekend. Whether you need a HUGE number 2 shaped piñata, or you’d prefer to whack him on top of a delicious, decadent Cookies & Cream cake, this versatile little guy can be whatever you want him to be!
The days are getting longer and Spring has finally er.. sprung! What better way to celebrate the Easter Weekend than with this beautiful Peter Rabbit Birthday cake we made for Maisie’s 2nd Birthday? This tiered cake is iced in smooth Vanilla buttercream, with layers of Lemon Sponge for the top tier, and Vanilla with jam and buttercream for the bottom tier, decorated with hand-made sugarpaste pieces. I am sure Peter Rabbit and Jemima Puddle-duck would be pretty pleased to find themselves in such a delicious garden.
…And we’re back! Sorry for the lack of posts over the last few weeks – who knew launching a recipe book was so much work eh? Of course we’ve been busy baking away as well as book-selling, so let’s catch up with one of our favourite cakes from the last couple of weeks (perhaps ever!) with a look at this 4-tier Mario Kart cake for Zamir. Four layers of edible Karting action including the Cocconut Mall, Maple treeway, Bowser’s Castle and Rainbow Road!
