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!

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…
