Quick Spring Themed Birthday Cake

I made this quick colourful cake for a lovely little girl. It was a last minute decision to make this cake, did this in a day, hence the flowers are not that perfect.

Easter Picnic

I made this cake for an online cake competition. I was in two minds about doing this. Initially I thought I might try this and made the mad mistake of mentioning it to my dear son. Then I decided I wasn't going to...... too busy, too scared( this would be the second time I would be entering a contest)!!!. Then just two days before the closing date my darling son started bugging me about the Easter cake I promised him I was going to make... why am I not making it, he wanted bunny on it, Easter eggs etc... I couldn't let him down, could I? No harm in trying.... So here is what I created in two days.

I have submitted my cake.... and the hopes of winning is very dim, slim, but the enjoyment and experience I got from making this cake is tremendous. There are about almost 150 lovely beautiful cakes to compete with :-). My actual headache starts tomorrow, 'cos I have to vote on the cakes and pick ONLY 5 out of the whole lot. which itself is so hard because they are all stunning creations and then grade the 5 that I have picked. Thank God it will be one less because I can't vote for my cake !!!;-)

Old Hollywood Bachelorette Party Cupcakes

Now I can write about my latest Mystery cupcakes. I wasn't sure whether I could write about it initially because it was a challenge and I wasn't too sure about the rules. Now the results are out and here goes.... This was the first time I have entered a contest of any sort.  These cupcakes was for an inspiration challenge based on a theme and set of colours. 

I didn't end up winning but gained loads of experience doing these. I can also proudly say that I can spot (or have the eye for)  a winning set of cupcakes miles away ???. Out of all the cupcakes there was one lot that I really liked and I actually did comment on it and clicked on the favourite for it ( it didn't win because I did that, It was the editor's choice).... And guess what those cupcakes  ended up winning!!!! WOW not bad huh for a first timer??? CONGRATULATIONS to the Winner of the challenge.
