Cakes for the Kiddies!

Today's blog post is featuring some of our recent cakes that we created for children-related events. From birthday parties to Christenings, baby showers to gender reveal parties, every cake was so much fun to make and we hope just as much fun to eat!

First up are three birthday cakes. Each one is so different but we loved each and every one of them! We love doing children's birthday cakes because we can use tons of bright colours and lots of adorable little decorations.

The first cake is a second birthday cake for a lucky little boy who LOVES trucks. We made his first birthday cake last year (a super cute dump truck!) so this year we went with a construction truck, filled to the brim with chocolate brownies. We also included an adorable little fondant moose, who may or may not have stolen a bite of brownie ;)

The second cake was for a Cookie Monster themed first birthday party. And, of course, you can't have a cookie monster cake without fresh baked chocolate chip cookies!

The third birthday cake was actually two cakes, as they were for twins! We created two first birthday doggie cakes, one for each child :). We also made some matching cupcakes, with handmade doggie fondant faces on each one. Thanks so much to Jennifer van Son Photography for the amazing pictures of our treats!

The next cake we're featuring was for a baby shower. We decorated this confetti flavoured cake with a beautiful sky coloured fondant and then covered it with tiny fondant baby clothes, trees, flowers, and some gumpaste baby booties. This was a perfect cake for a summertime baby shower and we were thrilled with the way it turned out :)

Next up was another cake for twins :). This one was a Christening cake and we absolutely loved the result. We went with a purple ombre swirl design which created an elegant and beautiful cake.

Last up for this post is a gender reveal cake! These parties are becoming more and more popular. The excited mom gave us the gender and we dyed the inside of the cake and the icing either blue or pink. It's a fantastic way to surprise your friends and family with the exciting announcement!

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…
