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 tasty sugar cookie recipe and made all kinds of different Easter shapes. We love decorating cookies because no two ever turn out the same!



We hope everyone had a safe and happy Easter weekend!

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 …
