Goodies Galore!

Well get ready for another random post full of lots of photos!  After a couple weeks at the shop I always have plenty of random orders that I photography (with my new camera of course!), so I thought today would be a good day to show them off! Hope you enjoy!

First up an adorable communion cake I did for a little girl.  I love how the clouds turned out! We used an edible frosting sheet to print the angels and verse and then piped a pearl border around it.

Since the clouds were just too much fun I thought I would show a quick tutorial on how we made them.  First roll random size balls of fondant and stick them together with a little dab of water or egg whites.  Then roll a thin sheet of fondant and cover the balls.  Next sculpt around the balls to form one large cloud.  And finally I airbrushed the whole cake with pearl luster dust to give it a shimmer.

Next we did a gorgeous homespun style cake and cupcakes for the sweetest bride! They LOVED our red velvet, so they got a small two tier cake and lots of yummy cupcakes for their guests.  I love when my clients are so much fun to work with!  I also had to snap some photos of the beautiful flowers they had…I love the rustic, wildflower look!

Another fun cake I got to make recently was a Lego style cake for a cute little boy who turned 4 years old!  They wanted a little Lego firefighter on the cake as well, so I sculpted one for them.  I thought it would be fun to incorporate the Lego style with the wording too, so Tim designed the graphics for his name and age…I thought they turned out great!

We love doing custom orders too, so these next photos are some special orders we did for our clients.  First up are some custom decorated cake lollipops for a recent baby shower.

Next we did some logo style brownies for a recent birthday party.

I love when our clients come to us with fun ideas!  Our client wanted to surprise her boyfriend for his birthday with custom cupcakes that had his face on it…how great are these!

Another fun surprise was when I was asked by Tiffany’s in South Coast Plaza to make a cake for one of their client’s anniversary.  They wanted lots of sugar peonies and pearls!

    You are amazing :) I loved the Lego cake. So creative and fun! I’m sure the little boy loved it. Hah, it would have been so cute if he thought it was made of REAL legos and tried taking it apart :p The Tiffany’s cake is gorgeous! I can’t believe you made those flowers by hand! They look so real!

    Beautiful! Those clouds are too cute.
    I have a question. I know you’re a professional baker and professional bakers do not reveal their recipes or secrets, but PLEASE tell me how you made the frosting on those red velvet cupcakes! And how do you pipe it like that? Thanks!

  17. Pam says:

    Your creations never cease to amaze me!! I love love love your work :D
    Thank you so much for sharing it all with us. I am always excited to click on your blog to find a new post.
    You’ve inspired me to take my skills to the next level. I’m teaching myself how to work with fondant & gum paste and I’m finding it’s a lot of fun to create my own little (beginner) works of art. I step back and can’t believe that “hey, I made that!”… and it’s all because of you & other bloggers who share their knowledge & experience.
    Thank you again!!
