Minions!!

My sons love the Minion movie, so for my youngest son Luke's 6th birthday this year I decided to tackle the minion cake.

Oh what fun I had creating this cute little guy.  Stuart is his name.





Filming underway

Earlier this month I spent two busy days with Hing and Esther (videographers) filming tutorials.

I prepared ten tutorials which will be available for your viewing from my website.



I asked my followers on instagram what they would like to learn and I got some great feedback.

I decided on a few videos to help you get started and also some more detailed videos to help you create stunning finishes on your cake.

I started with the recipe and step by step instructions on my secret chocolate mud cake which is my tried and tested recipe that I work with regularly. It is delicious and extremely reliable.

Then I have shown you how to make ganache, ganache your cake so that you get a beautiful smooth finish and straight edges.

I have also filmed step by step instructions on how to cover your cake with icing, stack two tiers together add stunning gold leaf to one tier and rustic and delicate ruffles to another tier.

I think one of the most exciting videos is my quick sugar peony, Its so much easier than it looks and it looks breathtaking.

I have also included a tips and tricks video to show you the important little things I like to do to ensure my cakes have a professional finish. (those little details you wont find in a book)

I am so excited to release these to you and hope that they will inspire you to create your own cake works of art. I look forward to seeing what you create also and hearing your feedback on the videos.

At this point I they will be available mid may, if you would like to receive email notification of when they are available sign up for my regular email and notification of what is happening at Sunny Girl Cakes.

Cheers Skye

I had fun creating this cake with soft ruffles and a rustic finish to the middle tier with the distressed silver leaf and twine.

Hi Skye

Thank-you for your kind email!
Jamin and I had the most amazing day, and couldn’t have asked for any more!
The cake was absolutely stunning, and fit the theme of our wedding beautifully. You are truly very very talented!

Thank-you so much for all of our professional touches, such as the gorgeous and yummy sample box (a BIG surprise and delightful!), your advice on the cake bags, 3 different flavoured tiers, the shimmer dust on each sugar flower, and most importantly, delivery and setup on the day. You made it so easy to work with you, and the beautiful cake was such a great surprise for us on the day! It really added a stunning feature next to our bridal table, and the guests kept going back for more!

You are very welcome to use any of the photos in your marketing, and I have attached a few more photos of the cake and matching d├ęcor if you would like them for your marketing.
Thank-you again for your enormous effort in the lead up to our big day, and we will certainly be happy to recommend you to any of our family and friends. In fact – we look forward to seeing your next creation at Tristan and Jess Hamson’s big day in September!
All the best for a very bright future.

Warm Wishes

Mr & Mrs Fryer!
