Sweet 16

We were invited to an amazing young lady's Sweet 16 celebration yesterday, and were asked to bring along a cake too! We were only too happy to oblige. The colours were based on the bithday girl's invitations and her dress colour. The first tier was all chocolate, the second all vanilla and the top tier was vanilla cake with oreos 'n cream buttercream. The cake is shown before and after the topper was added.

Amy and Aleks

Our good friends were married in a romantic, winter wonderland setting in December. Everything was glittery and refined...a truly memorable event! This cake was designed by the beatiful bride, and her lovely daughter, with some help from me. The entire confection was covered in creamy fondant and decorated with icey blue flowers and leaves. I then brushed royal icing on the flowers to give them an icey, just snowed on appearance. The bride added white fresh flowers with seasonal greenery at the venue, but I unfortunately did not bring along my camera. Inside was lemon cake with lemon curd buttercream and chocolate and vanilla cake with alternating layers of oreos and cream buttercream and whipped chocolate ganache. Congratulations Amy and Aleks.

Gingerbread House Cake

My eldest daughter turned 6 right before Christmas. We had a gingerbread themed birthday party where her friends put on Christmas aprons and chef hats and decorated their own cookies to take home. They later decorated a cake that they devoured! Later in the evening, we had a "family' birthday party, where this cake was served. All decorations are fondant. Inside was frecked chocolate orange cake with orange scented buttercream.

Poodles in Paris

I LOVE this theme! A little girl celebrated her first birthday in style!!! This design borrows heavily from pink cake box. All decorations are handmade from fondant. Inside was vanilla cake with vanilla buttercream.

Motorcycle Birthday Cake

I made this cake for a little guy who loves motorcycles. The banana and nutella cake was covered in fondant and hand made fondant decorations.

Halloween Cupcakes

My daughters' school held a Halloween party and these cupcakes were my contribution.

Halloween Cookies

I'm catching up on blogging! These were created to be given as take away treats for the guests of a Halloween themed birthday party. They are all decorated with royal icing and accented with edible markers and sanding sugar.
