Cake Catch Up!

It's cake time! Last post we shared the cookies that we've worked on the past few months, now it's time for lots and lots of cakes! We've definitely been keeping busy with all kinds pretty, funny, cute and of course, yummy cakes! Here's a sample of some of the projects we've been working on...

First up, a colourful cupcake tower and elegant mini cake, complete with some adorable penguins! This was for a fall wedding and we loved all of the fun colours and flavours that went into this display.

Next up was another fall wedding cake. For this cake, the bride decided to go in a different direction and chose a slab cake for her reception. This was a delicious carrot cake covered in cream cheese icing, a beautiful quote and some festive autumn edible leaves. Definitely a great alternative to the traditional tiered cake!

As the wedding season winded down, the birthday season picked up! We had SO much fun coming up with ideas for these playful cakes. Many hours were spent building all of the fun details on all of the cakes, mostly because we kept coming up with more and more things we wanted to put on top! Here's a few of our themed birthday cakes that have kept us so busy the last few months!

First up, a super cute camouflage themed first birthday cake.

Next, a Gotham City inspired Batman cake!

This was a fun one. A beer keg and soccer ball cake!

And finally, an 80's themed cake! We had so much fun coming up with ideas for this one!

Stay tuned for a festive Christmas post coming up, full of cupcakes, cookies and of course...cakes!

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 …
