Cakes Galore

Monday, August 20th, 2012

Get ready for a slew of cakes!  I have definitely been behind on my blogging this summer…wedding season, my little blake, and the two bakeries are definitely keeping this mommy busy, but I finally have some posts ready and this first one is filled with lots of special occasion cakes that we have done recently!

I am so blessed to have such a fabulous staff…my cake team of Kyong, Jenna, Irene, and Kasey really make some amazing cakes…at least in my opinion…every week!  And of course they couldn’t do it without my whole team who bakes all the delicious stuff day in and day out!

First up is one of my favorites…how cool is this buttercream space themed cake!

Keeping with the science theme we have a cute birthday cake full of brainiac stuff!

Train cakes are definitely popular among the toddler ages and this one turned out really fun I think!

Another fun tiny train cake…

Cat in the Hat anyone?

This next cake is one of my favorites too.  I think the camera turned out fabulous and the modern design of the cake (the client requested it) turned out great!

Angry birds is also a very popular cake for kids and this one is full of action and movement!

Gotta love this construction cake…

Topsy turvy cakes are a big hit at birthday parties for little ones too and this one is full of bright colors and patterns.

A lot of clients love looking at our previous designed cakes and putting their own spin on them so for this baby shower cake the client wanted to add another tier and then a fun rainbow on top too!

IMG_4987

How adorable is this baby shower cake…love the tiny clothes!

IMG_5154

Sweet and simply gets me all the time…ruffle buttercream cakes get me every time.

IMG_5240

I love this modern twist on a Hello Kitty cake…the strips and large bow are too much fun!

IMG_5246

IMG_5247

Of course Disney theme cakes get requested a lot too!  This Mickey and Minnie Mouse cake is the perfect accent for any Disney party.

Sprinkles, sprinkles, sprinkles…

Adding course sanding sugar to any buttercream or fondant cake really gives it such a fun sparkle.  This communion cake is sweet and simple, but completely girlie!

IMG_5220

Just had to add in these fun sugar cookies…love how the mermaid turned out!  My Aunt Rosie, who works with us is a pro at cookies!

IMG_5211

This next cake is such a boy cake…love every aspect of it!

Just this week we had the scary chance to create this crazy cake…you ask what it is…it’s a Spider Mastermind Cake :)  The cake was sent over to G4TV.com and it had quite the reaction!  You can check out the whole video here!

Kyong and I had a great time making this cake and my wonderful brother-in-law made the awesome stand for us!

Circus Themed 1st Birthday Party

Wednesday, June 22nd, 2011

I was so happy to find that we were featured on On to Baby, one of my favorite new sites!  We get so many creative parents coming into our shops looking to put together fabulous birthday parties for this children and this mom did a fabulous job!  I love every detail of this circus themed dessert table we got to do and all of the party details are just to die for :)  Thanks so much to Krista Mason for the gorgeous photos!

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.

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.

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.

Fun, Girlie Celebration Cakes

Monday, March 28th, 2011

So sorry for the lack of posts lately!  I had the amazing opportunity to visit New York last week with my mother as I was invited for an interview with Carly Roney, the editor of The Knot Magazine, for their LIVE weekly web episode!  It was such a pleasure meeting all of the wonderful ladies at The Knot and they really made my time in New York even sweeter!  You can check out my web episode if you click here and then clink on “The Knot LIVE” and I am episode #6!  I am about 19 minutes in and I don’t think you can scroll forward, but all the other guests they have featured and tips they give are great so I would recommend watching the whole thing!

Screen shot 2011-03-28 at 8.59.50 PM

It was quite an experience shipping a fully decorated dummy cake, cake stands, and desserts across the country and then having to prep it all for TV…I did survive it, but barely :)  Of course I loved seeing it all set up and I have to say a big thank you to my fav girlfriend and uber talented wedding designer friend, Jesi Haack, who made me this gorgeous back drop!  You are the best!

I was so happy to see Anja from The Knot and of course she is just as cute as her Twitter picture!

A sneak peak into the fabulous studio where it all happened…

IMG_9029

Sadly the New York weather wasn’t the nicest too us while we were there (and I even got my iphone stolen the first night), but we did have an amazing time seeing Mama Mia & eating tons of yummy food!

IMG_9024

I was so happy to have my mom there with me the whole time…I am definitely blessed!

Well enough talking, I of course have lots of fun photos of cakes we’ve done lately at the shop!  We’ve done so many more specialty cakes this year, compared to last year and these next ones were really fun!  First up this Louis Vuitton purse was a collaboration between Kyong and I (we like to work together on projects a lot)!

I definitely think the devil is in the details, so with purses you want to make it as realistic as possible.

This cake below was a sweet, girlie birthday cake…all pink please!

IMG_8586

IMG_8592

Our “favorite things” cakes are becoming more and more popular with people these days as many of them really want to personalize their cake and can’t hone it down to one theme/design, so instead we take all of their favorite things and put it onto one cake!

IMG_7872

Kyong is great at small, detailed fondant pieces!

This wine bottle cake was a fun request from a regular client of ours.  He wanted to surprise his wife with a exciting cake for her birthday which they were celebrating at a wine bar.  He digitally made the wine label and we printed it with edible ink so that it had all of his wife’s info instead of an actual wine bottle’s info.  He also loves the french macaroons we make at the shop, so he wanted us to make a grape cluster out of french macaroons as well.

Lastly this blinged out cake was for a fabulous 40th birthday party.  She wanted it to be fun, girlie, and with lots of bling!  We had a great time making it and I especially enjoyed making this new style sugar flower!

Interesting Custom Cakes

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!
