Cakes for All Occasions

Thursday, June 9th, 2011

I absolutely adore this first cake on today’s post!  I gave Kyong the design elements that needed to be incorporated on this Milk and Cookies themed cake and she knocked the design out of the park!  I love every detail she did on this cake!

Next up is Irene’s son’s Super Hero birthday party she put together.  She designed and made all the desserts for it.  I also love the background she made for the dessert table.  She took comic book pages and blew them up and framed them…what a great idea!

Custom cakes are a lot of fun making and this next poker themed birthday cake was no different.

We created an elegant 40th birthday cake based off the client’s invitation.

Wish I had more photos of this Guinness Beer cake Kyong did.  It looked so amazing in person!

This Fedora hat cake was a lot of fun to make.  I loved getting to carve it and how it came to life with the stitching and details.

Kyong recently made this adorable cake for a couple who loves beach camping in the VW Vanagon…too much fun!

Guy cakes are sometimes hard to master, but I think this muscle car cake came out pretty good!

Lastly, Kyong did a spot on hand painting of the Coppertone Kid label with a graduation twist on the theme.  The client loved the beach and was a free spirit at heart.

Graduation Cake

Friday, May 23rd, 2008

Well, graduation time is here and orders are coming in!  My mother-in-law ordered this cake for a good friend of hers who went back to school to finish her nursing degree.  I thought it would be nice to add a little girliness to the cake so I pulled in the color pink to spice it up.

I used my favorite chocolate cake recipe from Ina Garten and then added coffee whipped cream filling and covered the cake in chocolate mousse buttercream.

I used cookie cutters to cut out the diploma and graduation cap fondant accents and then used royal icing to pipe the borders around the shapes.

Congratulations to all the grads out there!
