Nerf Gun

The little boy was so into Nerf Gun that the games for his birthday all revolved around this gadget. When I sent the cake to them, I was caught by traps at the doorstep, alarm system, and saw a huge target board hanging on the wall. This brings back lots of memories – it’s been such a long time since I planned such parties for my own girls. How time flies!

When my friend first approached me to make a Nerf Gun cake, I honestly have no slightest clue what it is – what … nerf … gun? I thought it was a typo error in the sms, something I am guilty of when in a hurry. But I gave myself a good excuse .. this is boy’s toy, and I only have 2 girls ..

Anyway, using a technique of choclate transfer I just learnt in class, the following was born …

Nerf Gun

On the whole, I am quite happy with the outcome, except that I should have used a darker orange so as to allow the name stand out a little more. But I am glad that the little cupcakes were well received, and the mummy had no chance to eat any bullets nor the target board as those were the target of the little boys!

About justbakeit

I am a stay-at-home-mum, having the most supportive hubby and two lovely girls. I first started baking more than 10 years ago, with one of the first few attempts being a birthday cake for my elder daughter. It was a simple and amateurish looking one, but I will not forget her delight at seeing it! After that, I found a new me, a new passion. I have been baking with much gusto, attending classes, immersing myself in the internet and the world of culinary books. I absolutely love to bake, but after a while, baking is just not enough. I cannot stop marvelling at those beautifully decorated cakes in showcases and cake magazines. So from baking , I ventured into cake decorating. Entering the world of fondant and different icing, colours and dimensions are quickly added to my bakes. There is so much to learn, so much to explore in art of cake decorating. Every cake presents a new challenge. Would love to use this blog to share my experiences and make like-minded friends!
