Shown below are a range of the various birthday cakes and cupcakes that I have made for both friends and family.
As an alternative, or even in addition to a large birthday cake, cupcakes are becoming increasingly popular.
Recently I have made Star Wars, Little Einsteins, Igam Ogam, Mario Kart Wii, Hello Kitty and Littlest Pet Shop cupcakes.
Whichever children's characters you require can be made into delicious cupcakes.
Little Einsteins Cake
A sponge rendition of the 'portal of power' with the 5 favourite Skylanders of Alex whose 8th Birthday this cake commemorated, the figures of 'Zook', 'Double Trouble',' Lightning Rod', 'Stealth Elf' and the incredibly difficult to make 'Ignitor'.
I was on a mission to create Ollie's 4th Birthday party cake with the Little Einsteins.
Rocket sat on top of the cake with Leo, Annie, June & Quincy all sat round the side.
This was a three-tiered affair consisting of the Mad Hatters hat, The Cheshire Cat and a teacup with White Rabbit, Mad Hatter & Alice inside.
Ben & Holly's Little Kingdom cake
The little kingdom provided Eleanor's 3rd Birthday cake theme. Fondant figures of Ben, Holly, King & Queen Thistle, Mrs Elf & Nanny Plum were on top of this sponge, not forgetting Gaston the ladybird.
Harry's 2nd Birthday party had a cake from the Night Garden. The Tombliboo bush and the tombliboos were joined by Makka Pakka and the HaaHoos, there was even Makka Pakkas stones in a number 2.
Meg & Mog
Sophie's favourite pink teddy and some alphabet blocks letters made her 1st Birthday cake a very pink occasion.
books meant that this was the only cake that she'd have for her 2nd Birthday, with Meg, Mog and Owl cup cake adornments.
Star Wars - Millennium Falcon & Darth Vader
My niece Lucy wanted a Star Wars cake, For her party I created some Star Wars characters cupcakes. Her main cake though was this rendition ofthe Millennium Falcon complete with Luke skywalker and R2D2 accompaniments., Her friend Ewan wanted Darth Vaders' Helmet.
Eleanor's 4th Birthday cake was a very pink & purple affair. Her favourite little LPS figures adorned the cake, the easier ones made out of icing, but some were just too intricate, it is the Littlest Pet Shop after all.
