My sister first made all sorts of requests for her fiance’s birthday. It started with a basketball cake and then she changed her mind and asked for a wine bottle cake. Basketball and wine are his passions and she wanted to incorporate it into his cake.
In the end she decided on a simple vanilla cake and left it up to me to design it. I made two layered 8 inch vanilla bean cake and frosted with a vanilla bean coffee scented buttercream. Drizzled chocolate ganache completed the look.
Judging from the look on his face he was a very happy boy!
I love it when clients make it easy for me. This particular lady wanted to deliver six dozen cupcakes to her fellow colleagues and her only request was chocolate and red velvet with cream cheese and everything else was left up to me.
The greeting card was designed and made by me personally. I just love Memories Suite!
Simple and chic can never go wrong. 🙂
Since its two hours to go till Thursday on this side of the world, I thought I throwback to March of last year when I made this gorgeous cake for my bestie’s birthday. Lilac and Roses go so well together don’t they? 🙂
I can’t wait to make your wedding cake this year Irene! xxx
I absolutely adore this cake! When I first saw it on I Am Baker’s blog I fell instantly in love. Its simple, easy and so gorgeous to look at. This was an 8 inch three layered cake made out of chocolate, strawberry and vanilla. Piping roses couldn’t be any easier and the result is so elegant. Perfect for a birthday, a bridal shower or just to surprise someone you love. 🙂
This was by far the most interesting order I ever had. My client wanted to surprise his wife for her 30th birthday and came up with a very unique idea for a cake. They are huge fans of Breaking Bad and you guessed it, he wanted a cake with stuff that resembled the ‘stuff’ from the show. He wanted it messy and textured and most importantly a very fun and unconventional cake.
It was a simple two layered 6 inch vanilla cake tinted blue and frosted with a textured vanilla buttercream. I finished off the cake with some sugar blue crystals that I found at the baking shop and voila!
His wife was absolutely ecstatic about the cake! They even dressed up as the characters from the show but I won’t show you that out of respect for their privacy. 😉
A client of mine approached me not long after I had posted up my blog entry on the ombre blue ruffle cake. Linda wanted to celebrate her son’s full moon celebration with the same beautiful cake but with some slight changes.
Like the previous one, it was an 8 inch four layered checkerboard lemon and chocolate cake frosted with cream cheese in between with a lemon buttercream icing. For a slight twist we added a blue elephant to the bottom of the cake and swapped the ombre from light to dark instead of dark to light.
I’m dying to make a pink baby shower cake! Any takers out there?? 🙂
Months ago, my regular client Petrina requested for a lovely birthday cake for her dad. As usual we didn’t want anything too pretty and girly hence I chose the royal blue colour which went pretty well with the ruffles.
It was a 6 inch 3 layered chocolate cake covered in royal blue vanilla buttercream.
Perfect for a very well loved dad. 🙂
Hello everyone! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
Apologies for the long overdue updates! Seraphina’s has been quite busy during the last quarter of this year and together with my mama role I’ve been busy with end of year school concerts and schedules and yada yada yada. I also recently acquired a gorgeous new camera so my pictures are going to be bigger and better then ever before.
Here’s to more more beautiful creations! Thanks to all for supporting Seraphina’s!
This was for a client of mine who wanted cupcakes for one of dearest friend’s birthday. It was a very simple request of one dozen cupcakes with chocolate and lemon flavour and the important part of the order…….nothing too girlish or pink!
I decided to frost the cupcakes with chocolate buttercream and an army green lemon buttercream finished off with pearl dragees on top. They had also requested for a tier to display the cupcakes and so I made my own tier once again with an 8 Inch and 6 inch cake circle with pretty wrapping paper.

I know they said nothing girly but I couldn’t help but throw in a pretty greeting topper and a pink polka dot candle! Seraphina’s always needs a touch of girly. 😉
Happy Birthday once again Sisca! xx
