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 cupcakes with lemon buttercream.

Then it was off to the reception to set up the display. We decided to add in some hand-made sugar calla lilies to match the brides bouquet. We also decided to decorate the cupcake stand with a matching black ribbon complete with rhinestone accents.  We LOVED how it tied the whole display together. We were thrilled with the finished product and hope the bride and groom were as well! :)

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 …
