Here’s one of the latest SweetElement creations I made for my cousin’s wife’s baby shower. Growing up my cousin Greg’s favorite character was Winnie the Pooh, so I thought it might be a cute idea to replicate a pooh cookie jar I had seen with him digging into his favorite treat – Hunny! In addition to the cake, I also made some cupcakes decorated with hunny bees and blue buttercream since they know they are having a baby boy!

Winnie the Pooh was made of alternating layers of devil’s food cake and yellow cake filled with cookies and cream buttercream and frosted in vanilla buttercream and fondant.
It’s been a happy cupcake time at SweetElement lately, can ya tell? These were ordered by one of my co-workers to celebrate one of her team member’s birthdays. The cupcakes were a mix of devil’s food cake and yellow cake topped with assorted colos of buttercream and decorated in chocolate.
Yet another SweetElement creation! A friend of my co-worker’s who planned the baby shower that I made my first jungle baby shower cake for wanted to order a similar cake with cupcakes for one of her co-workers, and here’s the result! I was fairly happy with the cupcake stand as well ~ even though it was made out of styrofoam, it was really easy to assemble and didn’t “shed” like a lot of other styrofoam products I’ve seen in the past.
The cake was a devil’s food cake filled and frosted with chocolate buttercream and decorated in chocolate and topped with fondant animals. The cupcakes were an assortment of devil’s food cake and yellow cake topped with multi-colored buttercreams.
Handmade fondant animals … too cute!
The client requested chocolate “dot” decorations that would work with the jungle theme on the cupcakes, which I think tied them together with the cake very nicely
