Beaches and Bagpipes!

We had SO much fun with our two cakes this weekend! As we've mentioned, we looove making themed cakes, so we were in heaven with our projects the past few days! Both cakes below were lemon cakes with one layer of lemon curd and one layer of lemon buttercream. Think lemon meringue pie in cake form! Yum!!

First up was a beach themed cake. The lucky recipients were being surprised with a big trip to celebrate their anniversary! So what better way to announce the generous gift then with a cake full of edible seashells, sandcastles, a lighthouse and some yummy sand! The whole cake is totally edible and we're in love with the pretty summery colour scheme! The sign on the front of the cake is a replica of the town's welcome sign. We hope the happy couple enjoys their cake, and their big trip!

The front!
And the back of the cake!
Next up was a retirement cake! Since this cake was for the patriarch of our Sugarbird family, we were pretty prepared for what he would enjoy during his retirement years! We started with a suitcase to celebrate his love of travel and to celebrate an upcoming trip. Next we added a camera to go with his love of photography and a set of bagpipes as he's become quite the piper in the past few years! And of course, we had to add the 'Honey Do' list. Which somehow has ended up in an edible garbage can ;). The camera and bagpipes are both made out of rice krispie treats and all of the other little details were made out of fondant/gumpaste. We were SO happy with the finished product, and even though it took a bit of convincing for him to cut into it, we're happy to say it tasted delicious as well! :)
The Honey Do List! :P
And finally, because we got busy last weekend and couldn't update our blog, here's our cakes from a few days ago! :)

First, a fun 60th birthday cake! This was a vanilla cake with chocolate buttercream!
And last but not least, a small wedding cake with some pretty gumpaste flowers on top and an elegant damask style stencil design :). For this one the couple went with a carrot cake with cream cheese icing.
Until next week! :). Thanks for dropping by!

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 …
