Playing Catch-up!

Yikes! To say we're a bit behind in our blog would be an understatement. It's been a crazy few months, but we're super excited to get back into posting updates of our work, and sharing everything that we've done over the past year. This post will be a quick look into some of our favourite cakes and treats that we've finished lately. And stay tuned for a very busy spring and summer!

This first cake was a super cute heart-shaped quilting cake. This was quite a difficult and time-consuming cake, but we LOVED the way it turned out. It was definitely like building and putting together a puzzle from scratch :)



These next two cakes are two of our most recent tiered cakes. They're both so unique and elegant and we're always so excited to see how the final product comes together. Both of these cakes required the use of new techniques and we love any excuse to practice new and creative ways of creating the requested designs :).

This first cake was a beautiful 3-tiered cake with a middle pleated tier. We added a hand-made flower to tie everything together.


This second cake is a smaller 2-tiered cake using chevrons and a simple monogram. The sunflowers brought everything together and we absolutely loved how it turned out.


And finally, we recently started making and selling traditional french macarons. After quite a bit of practice (macarons are sure temperamental!), we finally mastered the art and created some colourful and deliciously delicate treats :). The macarons pictured below are pistachio, salted caramel and strawberry buttercream. Yum!!



We hope you enjoyed today's blog. Stay tuned for more cakes coming soon!

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…
