Lots of Cakes!

Well, since there has been a lack of blogging these last couple months that only has to mean one thing…lots and lots of cakes!!! Here are just a couple cakes that I thought I would share with you…we’ve had a lot of fun special occasion cakes lately, some small and some large, but all of the clients behind the cakes were a blast to work with and hopefully enjoyed the cakes we made them!

First up is the flip flop cake that we made for a recent 50th birthday party that was hawaiian themed.  It was a ton of fun to make and the hibiscus flower that my sister made was the perfect accent to the cake!

Then next couple photos are of a recent wedding cake with sugar flowers, a baby shower cake with sugar booties, and a birthday cake with a motorcycle that was printed on our edible frosting sheets.

This next cake was a replica of part of a couple’s new home they purchased.  They wanted to celebrate their birthdays at their open house and thought what better way to do it then with a custom cake!  I have to give a shout out to my new employee Susie and intern Danielle who helped a ton on this cake…thanks ladies!

These next photos are from a recent 50th birthday celebration for two ladies.  Gervel has been a fabulous client of mine and I was so happy to get the chance to help her and her best friend out with cakes and mini cupcakes for their special day!

Another cake that was a lot of fun to make was for Bonnie Tsang, who is a fabulous photographer and friend of mine.  She wanted to get her sister a fun birthday cake that had her favorite theme throughout it…Anchors/Sailing!  The front of the cake had a cute anchor on it too!

And last, but not least is a Roulette cake we did for a recent birthday party!  One of my previous brides sent me a client of hers who wanted a fun birthday cake that celebrated her husband’s favorite hobby.  It was a TON of work, but I was quite happy with how it turned out!

    The polka dot one is so classic and pretty!

    But I love the roulette…I just found out how easy it was to play on my last trip to Vegas!

    Those are amazing. I think my favourites are the ones with the sugar flowers. Where did your sister learn or is she self taught?

    Hi, Melody! You’ve really taken off! Congrats!

    I was wondering if I could ask you a question……How do you keep cream cheese frosting from going soft and losing those pretty swirls after sitting out for an hour or so? ( I know you do alot of outside setups) I’m using 2 sticks butter/ 1 8oz block of cream cheese and about 5 cups of powdered sugar (vanilla, etc.). Anymore powder sugar and it’s WAAAAY to sweet. Do you use some kind of stabilizer? Thank you!

    Oh Melody, those are all wonderful. LOVE the hibiscus flower on the flip flop cake….it really makes it pop. And my favorite, most stunning look is still the tall cake, with the tallest tower in the center. I did that cake for my daughter’s friends wedding, and it turned out so great! Love your work…you continue to inspire!!!!

    The fondant flip flops are adorable! Also, I like the size of the layers on the black white polka dot & red-themed wedding cake. The red flowers are beautiful.

    Hi Melody. I’ve been having trouble with making black royal icing. I can’t seem to be able to get the color dark enough. Do you use a special dye for dyeing royal icing? Thanks!
