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 cupcakes in piped frosting and put them all together!
Next up was everybody's favourite garbage can dwelling grouch...Oscar! We went with a furry piping tip for him, added on the nose and mouth, and voila! He looks pretty happy for a grouch to us! :P
Then it was Big Bird's turn!! He was a bit more difficult than the others because of his marshmallow beak, but he turned out super cute and colourful and who wouldn't love an extra marshmallowy treat on top of their cupcake :)
And last but not least, one of the happiest monsters there is...Cookie Monster! We added on his googly eyes, some blue icing fur and of course, a cookie! He was a favourite and almost too cute to eat!
Finally we created the bright and fun mini cupcakes to go along with these silly creatures.
We packaged all of the cupcakes up for delivery, ready for Charlotte's Sesame Street themed birthday party. Happy Birthday Charlotte!! :)

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 …
