Cake decorations, clivia

This decoration was inspired by Mema's beautiful flower, which I really liked, so I tried to make it out of rubber. Amaryllis can be made in a similar way, there is only a small difference in the shape of the petals, for amaryllis they are more silty. And of course the colors are different.

Preparation steps

  • For the buds, shape the bud, put it on a wire bent into a hook, make three notches like petals, and wrap the wire and the lower part of the bud with green floral ribbon. Allow to dry.
  • For the flowers, attach the anthers and pestle to the green flower wire (it should protrude slightly above the anthers, and both should be thin and bent) with yellow floral tape. Shape a bowl of creamy gum, hollow out the middle, spread the lower part with your fingers and put it on a non-stick mat, cut three petals and separate them. Separately, roll out a little gummy and cut three more petals, and place them over the previously prepared three so that they do not match, and press in the middle. Put it on the wire with the anthers, fix the shape of the flower a bit and wrap the lower part and the wire with green floral tape. Let it dry, I usually stab everything into a marzipan ball, like this
  • Then paint the flowers with powder paint, yellow inside and the outer edges of the petals and the underside of the flower orange. I didn't have orange, so I mixed yellow and red from different manufacturers, and that approach, as you can see, doesn't give a very even color. When mixing colors from the same manufacturer, it is mostly OK because the grains are similar in size and mix well. For the buds, paint everything orange except the lines you have indented which should be lighter. Pass the finished flowers through steam (from a teapot or over a sickle) and let them dry, like this.
  • When the flowers are dry, bend the wires at an angle close to 90 degrees and connect one by one with a floral ribbon to get a thick stem.
  • For the base, first roll out and cut out a shape of white fondant, then mix white and blue but so that they do not merge completely, then shape some oval abstract shape in which you will stick the flower. Stick the clivia, then tuck the satin bruises on the wire and bend a few more blue wires into the bows above the flower.

Bloody witch eyes

Witches have their hands full for Halloween so due to long sawing at night or windy broom rides (they don’t like glasses), their eyes become bloodshot. And hungry at the same time, and this is a great dessert for them.

Who wouldn’t fall in love with them at first sight, because chocolate muffins rounded with LOLS have something irresistibly pink and too sweet in them. ******************************************** We thank the Magnolia patisserie for the idea.

Eggs punks

Simple eggs with a punk stick hairstyle will brighten up an imaginative menu for a child’s birthday. You can also leave the "haircut" of the eggs to the kids, let them be messy and disheveled, and there can be a bald man here and there.

Green caterpillar sandwich

It's no secret that kids need a little visual motivation to clean a plate of "healthy food". We used cunning and turned the cucumber, cheese spread and wholemeal bread into a cool green caterpillar.

Juicy bread

If you love bread so much that you want to make it the main dish, be sure to try this "concrete", dry meat, cheese and eggs refined roll. We especially recommend it in the spring (maybe for Easter!), When we can serve it with horseradish and spring onions.

Pistachio cake

Pistachio, a beautiful evergreen plant, is a favorite throughout the Mediterranean because of its bright green olive-like nut, sweet taste and pleasant aroma, which is used as a spice in cooking, and especially in confectionery.
