My Neighbor Totoro Cake

This cake was inspired from the animation film My Neighbor Totoro...I hadn't actually heard of the film so once more the internet was extremely useful and I ended up loving the graphics I found!

Here are a couple of the film posters:

And the cake!

I was unsure at first but I ended up loving it!

Book Cake

Last year I made a book cake for the lovely Hayley at Nook Interiors.  Her dad was turning 65 and, as he is an entrepreneur and loves 'self help' books, Hayley modified a book cover to create a unique one just for him!

Here is the original cover:

And the cake!

What do you think of my airbrushed 'light' effect?

Caterpillar Birthday Cake...

...for my little niece Ella.  Ella turned 1 at the end of January and I, of course, wanted to make the cake! 

Her Uncle David and I had bought her some wall stickers for Christmas (I know it's not exciting but they're really nice stickers!) from a fab company called Supernice.  This is what the stickers look like:

Here are the stickers in Ella's room:
And this is the cake I made:

I was starting to feel a little unwell as I finished the cake as you may be able to tell....the feet of the caterpillar are facing the wrong way!

Do you like my caterpillar interpretation?
