Cakes and Cupcakes and Cake Pops! Oh My!

It was another busy weekend at Sugarbird! Wedding season is in full swing and we were excited to to not only be making the wedding couple's cake pop favours, but also their cupcake wedding display! First stop, cake pops!

These little guys are small, but actually take quite a bit of preparation. The end product is a perfect delicious little ball of cake on a stick! We started by creating a whole bunch of these little cake bites (205 to be exact!), then got to work dipping them in chocolate and covering them in decorations. We went with pink and white to match the wedding colour scheme.

After they were all dipped, it was wrapping time! Every cake pop was wrapped in an individual bag and tied with a ribbon. Luckily for us we enlisted some help to give us a hand with the wrapping process!  Then it was off to the reception where they were placed on each person's plate :)

But it didn't end there! Also on the menu were 100 cupcakes, plus a small cake for the official cake cutting. The bride and groom chose apple cinnamon with maple cream cheese, vanilla with buttercream and banana with cream cheese icing for their cupcake flavours. And seeing as these are three of my favourite flavours, and we just happened to have leftovers, I wasn't complaining whatsoever ;)

Again, we went with the pink and white colour scheme. After baking all of the cupcakes and covering with icing and decorations, they were ready to be packaged up and transported to the reception :)

Finally it was time to set everything up! We organized all of the cupcakes on the gorgeous front table, and put our small cake on top, finishing it with a beautiful peony to complete the display. The finished product was a truly elegant pink and white cupcake tower and a fabulous alternative to a traditional wedding cake.

Congrats to the newlyweds! We hope they had a fantastic wedding :)

Themed Cakes!

We LOVE making themed cakes! Any excuse to be able to make fun little characters/decorations/creatures works for us. And we'll be the first to admit, sometimes it's too easy to get carried away making item after item to go on the cakes! There's just so many ideas that come out once we start creating things to go with the theme! This week there were two themed cakes on the books. One was a super fun handy-man/bicycle themed birthday cake, and the second was an outdoorsy/fishing retirement cake.

First up was the birthday cake. We were told that the birthday boy was a handyman who loved cycling.  So many directions to go in! We decided on a workbench shaped cake, complete with all the tools one would need to work on, what else, a bicycle! And of course, what workshop would be complete without a gumpaste box of band-aids!

Next up was the retirement cake! We were told that the lucky retiree enjoyed the outdoors, nature and fishing. Luckily so do we! We took inspiration from num…

Little Bit of Everything!

So it looks like we've been slacking with our blog posts again! We must be into the busy wedding and party season :). We've had a VERY busy few weeks with some super fun (and delicious) results! First, we'll start with all of the fun party cakes that we've been making recently.

First up, Bubble Guppies! Now we have to admit, before this order, we had absolutely no clue who or what the Bubble Guppies were. Luckily after doing some research, we were excited to find out that they were super cute ocean characters. We couldn't wait to get started making all of the fun characters and decorations to go with this theme! For this party we made Bubble Guppies cake pops, cupcakes and of course, a cake! We made this lucky two-year old's first birthday cake a year ago and couldn't believe that it had been a year already! We hope she liked her special birthday treats and can't wait for her third birthday! :)

Next up was a retirement cake for a local fireman. Anyone w…

Retirements and Birthdays!

Happy Sunday everyone! Today's post features some of our recent retirement and birthday cakes. We LOVE doing these types of cakes as we're able to bring in elements of each person to truly personalize each cake. These cakes are a lot of work and take hours to complete all of the little handmade decorations but we absolutely love seeing the finished products and seeing and hearing reactions from our clients :).

The first cake up is a retirement cake for a lucky guy who just bought a new truck. We recreated the truck out of cake and filled it to the brim with items that he loves. From golf clubs to guitars, spaghetti to baseball, this cake is truly a reflection of all of his favourites! We even included a garbage can full of work related items he'll no longer need :P

Next up is a retirement cake for for an employee who plays bass guitar in a band. We created an almost life-size replica of his guitar in cake and included a passport and boarding pass to represent his upcoming …
