Minnie Mouse Birthday Cake

Last week I made a Minnie Mouse cake for the 1st Happy birthday of Lujain. This cake was so cute. I'm still in love with the pink colours and ofcourse the Minnie mouse head Cake topper.


The cake topper is made of gumpaste. I made this cake topper 4 days before the delivery day. If you want to sculpt something you have to make them in advance so they can dry properly.



I used below drawing as a guide to make the cake topper. You can google any drawing that you want. Print your drawing out and use it as a guide like I did. I used a cutting tools. This tool is also available on my webshop.




The minnie mouse heads (see picture below) on the side of the cake are made with marzipan. Marzipan don't gets hard. So you can als made these in advance to spare you some time, the day that you need to bake an decorate the cakes.


The cake is a Red Velvet cake. For the recipe click here! The cake is filled with buttercream. You can make buttercream from scratch or you can buy the buttercream mi…

Recipe: How to make Profiteroles (recept di soesjes)

Like I promised in my last blog, I just upload the Youtube video on "how to make profiteroles". I know that many people have difficulty making and baking profiteroles. It's not an easy recipe, but if you keep practicing eventually you will be the best Profiteroles baker :-)
Below I will put the recipe and on the Youtube video you can see how I made the dough, pipe the dough and bake the profiteroles.
Take notice: Don't take your profiteroles immediately out of the oven when the baking time is over. Do your oven off and let them about 10 minutes in the oven and than take them out. 
You are wondering why.... Otherwise you will lose all the air in your profiteroles. And you will have flat profiteroles. Like I say practicing will help!
I filled my profiteroles with custard and garnish them with chocolate and confectioner sugar. If you want the custard recipe let me know.
