Weddings and Birthdays!

Another busy August weekend at Sugarbird! First up, a 3-tiered flowery summer wedding cake. This bride chose three different flavours for her cake. The bottom tier was our classic vanilla cake with vanilla buttercream. Perfect for a warm summer day! The middle tier was our super popular red velvet cake with cream cheese icing. And the top tier (a special choice chosen just for the bride's father) was yummy chocolate cake with chocolate buttercream.

After we got all three tiers baked, frosted and covered in a white fondant, it was on to the flowers :). For this cake the bride chose a royal blue and a baby blue for her colours. We made gerber daisies in several different sizes ready to go on the cake. Just like with all of our cakes, we sit and stare at the cake, trying out different placements for the flowers, moving things around, staring some more until we finally find a design we like, lol. We loved the finished product however! And after a bit of a stressful Saturday afternoon cottage-traffic drive to the reception, the cake was set up and ready to go :). Congrats to the happy couple!

Next up was a last minute birthday cake! We decided on our delicious banana cake with cream cheese icing (not to mention one of our personal favourites when we're making cakes for our family and friends ;) ). We didn't have much to go on with this cake. In fact I think we just had "she likes orange and jewelry", lol. Luckily we love being able to put our own personal touches on cakes, so we decided on a peachy coloured cake with some elegant sugar lace, edible jewelry and some shiny rhinestone ribbon. The client was thrilled with the result, and so were we!

Last, but most certainly not least, because we missed updating our blog last week, here are some wedding cupcakes that we created for some close friends. The happy couple chose lemon cupcakes with vanilla buttercream. We also added a delicious limoncello syrup to the cupcakes to make them extra moist and to give an extra kick of lemon flavour.

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 …
