Thank you for saving our lives, incredible Premature baby Koala Bears

I was writing todays blog about Classikool animal cake & cupcake topper moulds, one of them being the cutest Koala when I received an amazing story & incredible photos, and had to pass them on to you all.

It is not common for a Koala to bear twins, and regrettably in this instance the Mum was struck and killed by a passing car. Fortunately, the driver stopped and took the mother to the local vet, not knowing she was dead; where it was discovered she had these twins in her pouch.

First photo - Premature koala being fed with a syringe - so very tiny.

Followed by a pictorial chronology of their growth & ending with a big thank you for saving my life Kiss.

 "Classikool tower stands are the only ones used by PJR. They are strong, reliable and very easy to adjust. This 7 tier maypole stand was used for an engagment ceremony on boxing day. A variety of cupcake flavours and designs were used. The couple complimented the top tier cucpakes with their engagment rings, a beautiful and original touch.

I have thousands more to load but that is all for today, my little linking fingers are tired and I would like to give everyone their own space without overcrowding my blog.

More tomorrow, oh and you have to see our newest range of our sugar craft topper moulds, they are being loaded as I type and once again we have thousands of designs to come. So easy to use, such great value, so super cute.

Flexible and soft, rip and tear resistant, cute to store away , no more big bulking moulds. I would never buy moulds with mixed toppers, you tend to  pay loads for the mould and then only use one out of the mould, with our Classikool ones you get exactly what you need at the right price.

All the cake love as always, Sam x

My cupcake Friends are simply the greatest, check out their skills.

A big thank you for all your emails and for taking the time to comment on my Classikool cupcake community blog, it means so much. I am passing on your wonderful photos and skills to the world.

I am looking forward to seeing all the photos from all our new friends and including them in each Cupcake community update

The age old saying, a picture paints a thousand words is so true. So here is my epic community special. Please post your comments, share this blog, these photos deserve worldwide acknowledgment.

I will let Helen tell you in her own words about the cakes and cupcake illuminated display.

"They are Vanilla with champagne buttercream & handmade Gerberas & glittery hearts! The light in the stand looked brilliant. I was very pleased with it, thanks"

 

 

Ivory and navy wedding cupcake tower display,  6 tiers of the Classikool 7 tier maypole stand by Dawn Boddy at Dotty about Cake.

Cupcake flavours are ginger, carrot, lemon and vanilla. Oh and can you believe Dawn forgot to mention Chocolate, how can anyone leave chocolate as an afterthought. ;)

Regarding the Maypole we had a Facebook chat and in Dawns own words

"I know how could I!! I't's my favourite stand and Im getting lots of use out of it, infact I need to order another plus a 5tier one so I'll be putting an order in soon!"

I then offered some great tips on the Maypole

"I love the Maypole too, have you tried missing a tier at the base then screw 2 pillars together and pop another tier on top and its a lovely tall traditional cake stand =) I have just emailed you too."

Adele and Dawn both thought that was a great idea and it no time at all Adele created the most wonderful Birthday party cake display below.

 Well done for using my little tip and thank you so much for posting the photo, it shows everyone there is so much that can be done with a Maypole cake stand tower.

 In Adele's own words -

 "A birthday cake displayed on a maypole stand using two pillars between two tiers, as you suggested last week! It worked really well!"

Molly was super lucky to have such a lovely music themed Birthday Cake display made by Adele Bellingham from The Village Cake Company

 Here are a couple of cupcake creations, not yet on our cake stands but ready for the big day.

Classikool Cupcake Community Party - Day 1 by Sam Mack (weight not disclosed & sure to increase)

You bring the cakes, we bring the cake stands.

This last 3 weeks has been the most exciting and entertaining time for me and all the team at Classikool, along with our Facebook friends and fans. Being new to Face book & Twitter I have found them both fun and full of inspirational people with inspirational skills and ideas which I plan to pass on in my blogs.

I feel like a ring master when I say  let me introduce you to some of the yummy creations from some of the loveliest people I have had the the pleasure talking too, sharing photos and hearing from. You all make my day a pleasure & your cakes with the Classikool cake stands are the perfect combination.

I would have started this blog 3 weeks ago but there have been technical issues that prevented this, I am now playing catch up and everyone that contributes on Facebook will be included in here, if not this part then the next and so forth. 

Working together we can create a cupcake community that will grow and evolve, swapping and sharing receipes, photos, ideas and feedback to help us all. 


I have the pleasure in sharing the following.

Yummy chocolate fudge cupcakes on a Classikool 7 tier cake stand.  The cakes look like they have their own section on the cake stand, framed perfectly by the clear cross pillar system.

Chocolate_fudge_cupcakes_on_a_classikool_cake_stand_cakes_by_cookes_cakes

Cupcakes created by Cookeís Cakes (Market Drayton, Shropshire)
Bekki Cooke created the cakes after inspiration from her local pub chocolate fudge. A caramel layer under chocolate butter cream, topped with fudge pieces.

The topping was created with a Wilton 2D (well thatís if Bekkiís memory serves her well) and the caramel recipe was from  http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Caramel-Frosting-I/Detail.aspx

I am sure you will agree it really is chocolate heaven.

Peppa Pig cupcakes for the girls and Ben 10 cupcakes for the boys, cakes made by Kazza Madkow

Peppa pig & Ben 10 cupcakes on a Classikool cupcake Cake stand

Cupcakes are perfect for birthday parties and childrenís celebrations. Displayed on a Classikool cake stand takes up a small amount of table space and the kids love it. You can then use your cake stand with less tiers to suit. I use my 7 tier Maypole cake stand for coffee mornings, using 3 tiers for sandwiches and 4 tier for cupcakes.

Talking about the Classikool Maypole cake stand, itís the cream of the crop. You can use any number of tiers in any combination. Leaving out tiers and making seperators for traditional cakes. Some super pictures will be coming tomorrow of the Classikool Maypole cupcake tower in action.

Ensuring you display your cakes correctly is the best way to increase orders, our cake stands pay for themselves over and over and I have been told are worth their weight in gold. Always look for Classikool by name, a trusted brand for quality, choice, service and of course price.

More to come tomorrow, if my pc allows me with the glitches but I keep being assured a new blog will be ready for me soon x
