Lots of Cakes!

Friday, September 18th, 2009

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!






Thanks so much for taking the time to take a look at the photos…I’d love to hear which one you like the best!

Big Cake, Small Cake

Tuesday, June 10th, 2008

I thought I’d share some photos with you from two orders I had last week.  One order was for a topsy-turvy wedding cake.  The bride was having a very fun and colorful wedding and wanted a cake that expressed the same thing.  One thing that was especially fun about this cake was the flavor choice.  The bride and groom said they loved tiramisu, so I combined a couple different recipes together and came up with a great flavored tiramisu cake.  The cake layers were buttermilk cake that were soaked with a coffee-Kahlua syrup.  The fillings were a marsala wine cream cheese frosting and a mascarpone chocolate ganache…can you say decadent!  This was my first real attempt at a topsy-turvy cake and overall I was pretty happy with it.  There is a great tutorial on how to do these types of cakes at this link.  The colors for this cake matched the bridesmaid’s dresses exactly, which were from J. Crew.  The bride wanted a simple monogram with their last initial and for a personal touch she had me pipe on some of their favorite song lyrics, which was a surprise for her husband.   




Another order I did last week was for a small office party.  The client wanted to give one of her co-workers that was leaving some yummy and so she ordered a small 6″ cake and 4 sugar cookies. She said her co-worker loved Hawaii, so we went with a Hawaiian theme.  The cake was a buttermilk cake that was filled with pastry cream and fresh strawberries.  I used brown sugar to create edible sand and then added some Hawaiian theme fondant accents.  




Here is a shot of the pastry cream…just to make your taste buds salivate.  Look at those vanilla beans!


And here are the cookies!



I also wanted to say a couple thank you’s to some people…first I would like to thank Stephane at Chefs Gone Wild for the amazing food prize I won off of his blog.  I just received it in the mail and can’t wait to start munching on all of the goodies from around the world!  I would also like to thank Mindy at The Mommy Blog for choosing my blog as her “Site of the day”.
