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…

Beer, Wine, Golf and Ombre!

Talk about a mish-mash title for this post! But that's what our last couple of weeks has been like, a little bit of everything! It's been a crazy few days and we LOVED it! Our most recent cakes are some of our favourites that we've ever made. And we think it's fair to say that wedding and Summer party season has officially started!

Speaking of summer, first up was a cake PERFECT for the sunny, hot, bbqing, party weather. The birthday boy is a huge fan of Corona beer, so when his wife was planning his party, she knew that the cake HAD to incorporate details of his favourite beer. We were allowed to get super creative with this cake so we decided on a fondant covered ice bucket carrot cake, complete with sugar Corona bottles, and lots of adorable edible sugar limes, ice cubes, beer caps and of course, a bottle opener! We were so happy with how this cake turned out and were thrilled that clients loved it as much as we did :)


Next up, we switched gears from beer...to wine!…

Tinkerbell and Baby Showers!

We've said it before, but we LOVE making treats for children's parties! It's so much fun getting to incorporate our own twist on to the theme of the party. And when that theme is Tinkerbell, we get to bring out the super bright colours, glitter, and of course...magic!

We had so much fun with this first party. It was for a first birthday party. The proud mom chose cupcakes for the occasion which meant we got to come up with all kinds of fun designs! For Tinkerbell we of course had to tie in the mischievous little fairy herself. We also created some sparkly magic wands, dainty little flowers and butterflies, glittery stars and of course, her cute little pom-pommed shoes! We started with our lemon cupcakes and chocolate cupcakes and covered them all in our deliciously sweet vanilla buttercream, tinted in all of Tinkerbell's favourite colours. Then we added on all of our magical little decorations and voila! Tinkerbell cupcakes ready for the birthday girl!

Fun with Themes!

You all know how much we LOVE themed cakes (and cookies, and cupcakes) so the last few weeks have been a blast! From a moustache themed baby shower, to a Croods themed birthday party, our latest four projects have kept us very busy, and we loved it!

First up was a weekend of birthday cakes. The lucky birthday girl was actually having TWO parties and therefore, got two cakes! First, to go with the party plan of viewing the new movie 'The Croods', we created a cake in the spirit of the movie. We started with our yummy chocolate cake with chocolate fudge buttercream, covered it in fondant and then created all of the fun characters from the movie. We then covered the cake in some fondant and rice krispie square caves and finished the cake off with some colourful plants. We hope the Croods, and the birthday girl, loved the cake as much as we did!


For the second birthday cake, the theme was the birthday girl's favourite Disney princess...Belle! We created a skirt made out of lem…

Easter and a Fruit Basket!

Well, once again we're behind with our blog! We took a bit of break while we were undergoing some kitchen renovations, but we've been back at it for a couple of weeks and are excited to share our latest creations! :)

First up...a fruit basket! But not just any fruit basket of course. This one was made of a cake basket and hand formed fruits! We love detailed cakes because we can let our creativity go crazy, which is what we did creating all of the fun little pieces of fruit on this cake. The cake was a vanilla bean cake with lemon custard and fresh blueberry filling. It was covered in vanilla bean buttercream in the basket weave pattern. We were so happy with the finished product and hope the birthday girl was as well! :)



Next up...Easter!! We had orders for cupcakes and cookies over the holiday weekend. For the cupcakes, we went with three different flavours: carrot, vanilla and banana. Yummy and fresh, perfect for Easter dessert!


And finally, the cookies! We started with our…

Black and White and Bling!

It was another cupcake wedding at Sugarbird last weekend! And this one was pure elegance and glamour :). The couple was going with a black and white theme, complete with glittery, sparkly rhinestone accents. So of course we had to make the cupcakes match as perfectly as possible :).

We started with the top of the cupcake tower, which was a small cake for the ceremonial cake cutting. The flavour choice for this was chocolate cake with peanut butter buttercream. A favourite for the groom! We went with a classic white fondant, and then stenciled on a black damask pattern out of icing. We used a black ribbon and some gorgeous rhinestones and finished it off with some black and white flowers on top. Very classy :)

Then it was on to the cupcakes! The couple chose three different flavours for their treats. First up was our famous banana cupcakes with a delicious fudgy chocolate buttercream. Next up was our classic red velvet and cream cheese, and last but certainly not least, our lemon cupca…

Can You Tell Me How To Get To...

Sesame Street!! I think we've all grown up with this fabulous show, and in honour of a certain little two year old's birthday party, what better way to celebrate than with some familiar characters!

Charlotte LOVES Elmo so he was top on her list for her birthday party. We decided to bring in a few more fun and colourful characters as well! In fact, this order was all about fun and colour! We had so much fun playing around with the character's faces, making sure they were just right and recognizable as the characters we all love!

Because this was a cupcake order, we got to be extra creative since there were so many individual little cakes to play with. We started with regular size cupcakes and dressed these guys up as the main attractions, then added in some super colourful mini cupcakes for those that just wanted a quick bite :).

First up was of course, the star player...Elmo. We started with some big eyes, a happy fondant mouth and his big round orange nose. We covered the…
