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!




Our next party was a baby shower. The gender was a surprise so the colours for the shower were of course, pink and blue! The family decided on cake pops for the shower favours so we got to work making 3 dozen baby shaped pops. We went with half chocolate and half vanilla. Each cake pop was dipped in white chocolate and then decorated half with pink soothers and adorable little bonnets for the girls, and the other half with blue soothers for the boys! And we finished all of them off with some cute little hair curls :).

Once they were all dry and ready to go, we packaged them up in clear bags and tied them off with some pink and blue ribbon. The perfect little baby shower treat!




And last but definitely not least, another baby shower! We went with our super cute monkey's and onesies again, but this time went with a yellow theme. We also added some adorable designs to the onesies with some polka-dots and stripes to tie in some greens, browns and ivories. We love these cookies and think they make a perfect shower favour!



It was a busy weekend...and we loved it! Check back soon for an upcoming Corona bottle cake, and the start of our MANY wedding cakes!!

  1. I truly loved reading this post on Tinkerbell and Baby Showers! I too would be hosting the baby shower for my sister at the local party venue. The theme is not decided yet but I am making the list of the colorful and girly parties. Might go with the sunflower theme!

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…

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…

Festive Cupcakes!

We've been making A LOT of cupcakes lately!! Which is fine with us since there's usually extras for us to snack on afterwards... ;)

First up was an order for some Christmas themed cupcakes for an annual Christmas party. We decided to do red velvet cupcakes with our delicious cream cheese icing. To go with the Christmas theme, we added a festive red stripe to the icing and topped them all off with some holly leaves and berries. We were thrilled with the way they turned out and can't wait to use this striped decorating technique on other themes throughout the year!



Next up were some 50th birthday cupcakes. These were our famous carrot cake recipe with cream cheese icing and we decided on a gold theme to go with the holiday season! We made some gold ball lined stars with '50' on them, and finished off the decorations with some different sized gold dragees on top of the icing. We also made some mini cupcakes for a quick little bite :) We think they turned out glamorous…
