Baby Cakes, shower cakes and birthday cakes! :)

It was a weekend full of baby cakes at Sugarbird! Which meant we got to have fun with pretty pastels and cute little decorations :)

First up was a Christening cake. The cake of choice was our most popular flavour, red velvet with cream cheese icing. For this cake with went with a 2-tiered damask style stenciled cake and were so happy with the way it turned out! We went with pretty pinks for the colours and finished it off with a message for the baby girl :)

Next up was a baby shower cake! We had lots of fun with this cake making it twinkle and shine like the night sky :). Again we started with our red velvet cake with cream cheese icing. Then we covered it in sky blue fondant and added on some pretty stars and soft fluffy clouds. Next up was a tiny fondant baby, fast asleep under a cozy blue baby quilt. To finish off the cake, we made the stars glitter and sparkle! We loved the finished product and hope the soon-to-be-mommy loved it as well :)

Finally, because we didn't get the blog updated last weekend, here are our previous two projects :). First up was a gorgeous and elegant purple bridal shower cake, complete with edible lace and beautiful ivory flowers.

And last but not least, a super bright and cheerful 60th birthday cake. We went with a present shape with edible ribbon and chose fun summery colours for the birthday girl :).

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 …
