Why have a plain old party when you could have a Taste Bud Party. This Brown Butter Apple Pie Cake is the perfect cake to kick start this new series of cakes at Baked by Kirsty.


Brown Butter Cake Layers are stacked with a sweet layer of Apple Pie Filling, topped with a generous layer of salty Pie Crumbs, all pressed together and then covered with soft, fluffy Sour Cream Frosting. Repeat for extra Taste Bud action. The last Brown Butter Cake Layer provides a base for a final helping of Sour Cream Frosting adorned with the biggest Pie Crumbs in the batch, arranged in a crowning glory atop this truly decadent cake. Keeping the sides bare naked gives you a glimpse of the components that make up all Taste Bud Party Cakes, enticing you to dig in.



Small in stature but big on taste, Taste Bud Party Cakes are perfect for a small Birthday with a few friends, a special dessert after a Sunday braai, or even after a fancy dinner party. With layers of flavours that are all delicious on their own, but together will have your taste buds all-a-tingle. Rustic and delectable, a real taste sensation.


The Apple Pie Filling soaks into the soft Brown Butter layers giving the cake a spicy kick. The crunch from the Pie Crumbs adds a dimension of interest and along with the Sour Cream Frosting rounds of the bite into an eyes-closed mouthful of dreaminess.


Has to be tasted to be fully appreciated!

Rainbow Layer Cake

Rainbow Layers_Baked by Kirsty

Rainbows are colourful and so magical. And at Baked by Kirsty, Rainbow cakes are just as colourful and magical and they taste good too. When you first cut into a rainbow cake, its colourful layers will take your breath away, and may even bring your party to a standstill. But only for a short moment, because once the squeals of delight have died down and the slices are served, the party will be in full swing again. Whether you choose bright and bold tones like this one or you prefer soft pastel colours, a Rainbow Layer Cake will make your celebration an occasion to remember.

Chocolate Easter Cake

Chocolate Easter Cake with torn Buttercream_Baked by Kirsty

This delightful Chocolate Easter Cake was made with Chocolate Velvet Cake layers, sandwiched with Vanilla Condensed Milk Buttercream. To create this striking torn and broken buttercream effect, a layer of chocolate buttercream was covered top and bottom with a spring fresh lemon-yellow buttercream. The chocolate buttercream showing through was a perfect background for some buttercream grass with candy Easter Eggs nestled about and a chocolate Easter Bunny or three.

Signature Biscuit Box Cake – Oreo

Signature Biscuit Box Cake ft Oreos_Baked by Kirsty

The only problem with constructing a Signature Biscuit Box Cake featuring Oreo Cookies is when to stop adding Oreo’s. Boy are boy are these cookies delicious! It is possible to bake Oreo Cookie crumbs into the cake but for this one we exercised some restraint, we did, however add Oreo cookie crumbs to the buttercream and pressed the few left over crumbs onto the side for a delicious Oreo crumb skirt. We also used them to coat the Oreo cake truffles and to make Oreo Cake Crumbs that were hidden in the buttercream between the layers for a surprise crunch.

Taking inspiration from the Oreo Cookies themselves this cake was made from Velvet Chocolate cake layers sandwiched with white Vanilla Condensed Milk Buttercream and sprinkled with crunchy Oreo Cake Crumbs. Then we lovingly covered the cake with Oreo Buttercream frosting and went to town decorating with chocolate dipped Oreo Cookies, buttercream filled Oreo Cookies, chocolate shards with Oreo bits and Oreo buttercream swirls. Whilst a chocolate drip is optional we think it takes this cake to the next level of deliciousness as does the addition of Cake truffles. It is also possible that a few Lindt chocolate balls got in on the fun and found their way onto the top of this cake.

What would you include on your Signature Biscuit Box Cake? Or even inside? Include it all in your order if you dare!


Vintage Cake Collection

Vintage Cake Collection Showcase-2_Baked by Kirsty

Once upon a time a birthday cake was a simple but exciting treat. All it needed was a few candles and maybe some Hundreds & Thousands. These cakes are my tribute to those simpler times. They are all about the cake, with simple and neat buttercream frosting, soft vintage colours, a blank canvas for you to add candles, a cake topper, bunting or balloons. And let us know if you would like sprinkles – we have great mixes that will compliment your cake.



Some flavour combinations to consider:

Vanilla on Vanilla

Chocolate on Chocolate

Lemon on Lemon or maybe with Vanilla Buttercream

Vanilla on Chocolate

Signature Cakes with Character – Merry Monster

Merry Monster Cake-Chocolate Orange_Baked by Kirsty




Hope I didn’t scare you but that’s my name, Boo!

I am a Stalk-Eyed Monster Cake that Baked by Kirsty made especially for Halloween.


My Orange Curd Condensed Milk Buttercream fur tastes really good with my three Chocolate Velvet Cake layers.


You can tell my age by the number of eyes I have. And in case you were wondering … they are made of marshmallows and candy sweets perched on handy lollipop stalks – so you can grab them and eat every bit! Except the lollipop sticks – please don’t eat those! Maybe I could join you for your next Halloween party and with a bit of luck you might get the hairy eyeball!


Signature Cakes with Character – Mystical Unicorn

Mystical Unicorn Cake-Vanilla Velvet_Baked by Kirsty

It seems appropriate that the first Signature Cakes with Characters at Baked by Kirsty was this glorious Mystical Unicorn Cake.


6 softly coloured layers of Vanilla Velvet cake sandwiched with Heritage Ermine Buttercream make up the body of this fantastic creature. Topped with a golden Unicorn Horn and Ears and piped buttercream mane swirls cascading over the top and down the side. This Unicorn cake sits patiently with her Unicorn cupcakes beside her and beautiful eyelashes just waiting to make your birthday dreams come true.


‌Signature Candyland Cake – Smarties‌

Signature Candyland Cake ft Smarties-Vanilla_Baked by Kirsty

They are colourful and filled with chocolate but that doesn’t mean you couldn’t have vanilla cake layers and vanilla buttercream with chocolate and Smarties decorations! This Signature Candyland Cake was made to order “Vanilla everything with Smarties on top”. Chocolate discs made with bits of Smarties and sprinkle dots sit on top of this glorious Vanilla Velvet Cake. 3 layers sandwiched with Condensed Milk Buttercream, pillowy swirls and chocolate drip all scattered with Smarties, bit and small and ditto on the colourful sprinkle dots and hundreds and thousands. It’s an all round wonder of colour and yumminess.

Signature Ice Cream Parlour Cake

Signature Ice-Cream Parlor Cake-Decor_Baked by Kirsty

We all know that dropping your ice-cream is the saddest thing of all time. But not if you drop it on your Ice Cream Parlour cake. This glorious cake can be any flavour you like, just like ice-cream. So choose vanilla or chocolate. Or maybe strawberry? How about mint? Baked by Kirsty will then bake up delicious Cake layers, and other Cake decorations and Cupcakes that all go into assembling your dropped and dripping Ice-cream Cone Cake, Cake Sundae and Cupcake Shake. All this is perched on top of your chosen cake layers sandwiched with your choice of buttercream, swirls and not forgetting that chocolate drip. Sprinkles and straws finish off the look with cherries, wafers and chocolate sauce or maybe marshmallows and strawberry sauce. It will be up to you to choose which bit you grab and eat first – we are sorry we cannot help you with that decision.

This is a fun party cake where ice-cream, shakes and sundaes are made of cake!


Besides being colourful and delicious we think that it would be extra fun to mix 4 Ice-Cream Parlour Flavours and Decorations. Maybe you want to try a …


Vanilla Cake with a Chocolate Ice Cream Cone Cake, a Strawberry Sundae and a Banana Shake. We think it will be a taste extravaganza!
