Planning ahead for Halloween


It's coming up to that time of the year so this year I'm planning ahead. At Kiwicakes we have a huge range of 125 Halloween items to view our range click here 



My personal favourite is the Haunted House cupcake stand  This would be great with adult cupcakes using these shot tops. Shot tops are a fun shaped Pipette that holds a sauce or liquor, that can be squirted in to the cupcake just before it's eaten. I'm thinking tequila would be nice, perhaps a margarita flavoured cupcake.


For the children how about some decorated cookies, we have cookie cutters and a large range of icings and colours.


Wilton have a good range of chocolate moulds for Halloween and where's just a small sample.


Glow in the dark cupcake rings. Witches and Cats its all here why not browse our Halloween items now

Fun Unicorn Chocolate Pops


These Unicorn Chocolate pops were such fun to make, and despite their look, are actually quick to make. I used the Wilton round cookie pop pans, to pour compound chocolate melts in to, positioning lollipop sticks in the cavity provided. These could also be made using cookies (however the particular sticks I used were not intended for oven use). As chocolate shrinks when it cools, metal pans make great chocolate moulds instead of the usual plastic moulds.


To the centre of the pop I added a 9cm white circle of fondant



Using a smaller diameter round cutter, I cut some pale pink fondant in to a circle, then used the same cutter, to cut away part of the circle, leaving the nose shape. I indented the nose and eyes with the back end of my paint brush.


To make the horn, I took two pieces of yellow fondant and twisted them together


Once twisted together I flattened the end that was to attach to the head and tucked it under the white fondant layer, and secured with edible glue 
I used a small piece of fondant to suppor the horn until it dried


 I painted the horn gold using edible gold lustre dust mixed with rose spirit



The mane was simply free form pieces of rolled fondant cut with the scissors


 I used a knife to indent lines on the pieces of mane. The small stars were cut using plunger cutters and were secured with edible glue. The eyes are tiny balls of fondant dropped in to the eye cavity, to which I'd added a dot of edible glue. The tiny white dots of fondant are added afterwards. The ears are cut free hand from fondant, they are so small, no pattern is really needed. This pan set can of course be used to make lots of other fun critters

So this is me


I recently had my portrait taken, wearing makeup no less!. And for anyone that knows me, will know this is likely a once a year occurrence. However this all came about when I was invited to an event "Celebrating Hardworking Woman" for business woman here in Whangarei. It was an event run by Nikita Parker with proceeds going to "Look Good Feel Better"And the gorgeous Minette took our photos.

So with this lovely photo in hand, I thought I would tell you a little bit about myself
I am a wife, mother, daughter, sister and furbaby owner.
I wear glasses and can't manage without them.
I am not a follower of fashion, I live in jeans - I do not enjoy shopping (unless it's for kitchen gadgets, cake toys or good food & wine, then I LOVE Shopping!)
I love to travel. My favourite places to visit are OLD, I love museums and galleries.
I live, breathe, eat and even dream about cake. When visiting new places my first stop is often to do with food or cake related.
I hear all too often "I just don't know how you do what you do - how do you have time". I could laughingly say it is due to not wearing makeup and not co-ordinating my outfits. But the truth is I have an amazing support network. My long suffering husband has at times been both mother and father to our children whilst I've travelled throughout NZ and overseas to cake shows and cake related events. And Grandma Kiwicakes, whom many of you know and love has been my rock not only in business, but with the family too. And here at Kiwicakes I have a great staff that have been with me for years - I'd be lost without them.
I read A LOT and if I have a good book in hand, I've been known to be unable to put it down. I don't have a favourite genre, if it's good I'll read it.
I love to cook and take great pleasure pottering about in the kitchen.
I love discovering new restaurants and eateries
I strive to shop locally, whilst I have been known to make an appearance at the supermarket, I am a regular at the local butcher, Bin Inn, Co-op and markets. I prefer old retro to new items.
My fitness regime is pretty much non existent, but I walk a few kilometres every day with our wee dog. The rest of the time you'll find me glued to my computer, doing everything behind the scenes that is needed to run Kiwicakes.
