About

This blog will showcase a collection of images from different cake art, sugar art projects that I have done. Some have been for fun, competition and some are commissioned pieces for weddings, anniversaries, birthdays and special occasions.

One of my greatest pleasures is to dream up and create works of sugar art creating an original piece for whatever occasion the cake is created for. I enjoy the challenge of  different styles and ideas. I particularly enjoy creating beautiful cakes with dragons etc there are just so many possibilities. I you would like to commission a cake from me you can email me on dianecakedreamer@hotmail.com

All of the work that is my original design found on this site is copyright to me.

I live in NSW Australia.

I hope you enjoy my cakes.

    Hello Diane. Your cakes are just gorgeous. I found your blog while searching for inspiration for making blue-purple Singapore orchids from Air dry clay. Yours are the best I have seen and I love the way the cake graduates in colour. I wanted to ask if you would not mind sharing with me how you coloured the blue-purple orchids. Did you make them white and colour with two dusts or start with a colour and then dust with the other colour? Your help would be appreciated. Thanks 🙂

    • Hello Leeanne
      Thank you for the compliment on my work.I made them white, then first colored them with a light blue wash using food color diluted with alcohol.Not coloring all the white, then brushed with purple dust and some blue dust touch ups. I could of course done the first lot of blue with dust,but prefer the method I used for applying multiple layers of different colors. My flowers were all made with a sugar flower paste.
      I also find that when making flowers it helps to have a good look at the real thing, see how they are put together etc. pull one apart and so on. If that is not possible Google images of, in this case blue Singapore orchids, and see how the colors work on the flower, choose some you like and imitate them.
      I hope this has been helpful and that you enjoy making your flowers.
      Diane
