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 who's seen our past cakes knows how much we love doing cakes shaped like trucks, and this was no exception! We try to make all of our cakes different. So even though we've done several fire truck cakes in the past, we're constantly switching up the design of the truck to make every one unique :). Enjoy your retirement Jim!

Keeping with the theme of transportation, our next cake was a GO train cake! For all of you fellow Torontonians, you'll know exactly what we're talking about. For everyone else, think commuter train :). This cake was for a lucky guy who just recently became a licensed train operator. This design was a first for us but we loved how it turned out! Congratulations Brad!

Next up, baby shower cookies! We've made these onesie cookies several times now, but we always come up with new colours, patterns, designs and decorations to make them 'new'. These are quickly becoming a favourite amongst our clients and we love making them!

Our second last cake was a 50th birthday cake for a fitness buff! You all know how much we love theme cakes, so we had a ton of fun thinking of all of the different things you would find in a gym and recreating them in gumpaste. From dumbbells to medicine balls, water bottles to treadmills, we think we captured the fitness theme pretty good! :). Happy Birthday Sam!

And last but most definitely not least, we finished off with a wedding cake! We LOVED how this cake turned out. It's classic and simple and perfect for a summertime wedding. We made flowers of different shapes and colours and put them all together on this beautiful 2-tiered cake. The weather was perfect for this wedding and we hope the happy couple had an absolutely perfect day :)

Wow, that was a long one today! Looks like we'll need to keep on top of things this summer! We have several more busy weekends coming up and can't wait to share all of our new creations with everyone :).

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…

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 …
