Interesting Custom Cakes

Tuesday, December 21st, 2010

As this year comes to a close I look back on some of the cakes that we’ve made at the bakery and we have had quite the fun requests! Here are some recent cakes…first up a baptism cake that we designed after the little girl’s dress.  This was a really time intensive cake, but I loved the end result!

I love getting the chance to do desserts for some of my friends…this next dessert table we put together for Michelle, of MiBelle Photography, little boy’s first birthday.  It was right at Halloween time & we had a lot of fun with it!  Thanks for the fun photos Michelle!

The Ace Hotel

Wednesday, October 6th, 2010

I had the pleasure of being a guest at the Ace Hotel in Palm Springs this last summer for my good friend’s Molly & Donovan’s wedding at the O’Donnell Golf Club!  The whole weekend was tons of fun and a weekend that I’ll remember for a long time!  My husband was in the wedding and my good girlfriend’s Ashlyn and Heather from Carter & Cook Event Co did the wedding planning and design.  The lovely Windy Dougall shot the gorgeous photos and The Floral Lab did an amazing job with the flowers!  I was especially in love with Molly’s bouquet!  This wedding was lucky enough to be featured on Style Me Pretty today as well, so make sure and check it out to see all the fun details!

Halloween Photos: Part II

Sunday, November 1st, 2009

I hope all of you had a Happy Halloween!  I had way too many cute photos of my family that I thought I had to share them with you!  Plus I got the chance to make a fun 3D Pumpkin cake for a client of mine.  Her daughter was turning 4 years old and she wanted a fun cake that pulled in both occasions!  

IMG_3955.JPG

The cake was quite yummy inside!  The bottom tier was chocolate cake with whipped cream, strawberries & chocolate ganache. The middle tier was pumpkin cake with cinnamon cream cheese frosting & salted caramel. And lastly the top tier was banana cake with chocolate ganache and peanut butter cream cheese frosting.  

I hand sculpted each pumpkin and then airbrushed them to make them look more realistic.  Next I stacked them and created lots of vines and stems to fill in the gaps.  Here are some more close-ups of the cake…unfortunately I didn’t realize they weren’t in perfect focus under I was done with the cake, but at least they show you more details.

Aren’t they too cute for words!  Well, those aren’t the only Halloween photos I have for you…I just had to include these next few photos.  All I have to say is “How awesome is my staff!!!”  Now sadly, I had a wedding delivery that day and couldn’t dress up or else I would’ve strapped the pirate belt on and jumped in the photo!

I think we can all agree that Octo-mom gets the best costume award!  Can you believe how great Louisa looks!

Trick or Treat! It’s Halloween Time!

Wednesday, October 28th, 2009

Well, I thought I would quick try to get out a little post on some yummy treats that might inspire you for Halloween!  I meant to try and create some new cupcakes for this Halloween, but sadly all of my time got zapped up and so I thought I would show last year’s cupcakes along with some new sugar cookies.  Hope you enjoy!
