Yummy Treats For Charity!!

From time to time I get requests to whip up some yummy treats for various charity events locally. It’s always an honor when I’m asked and I love being able to use my talents to help raise money for a charity.

This weekend I had the chance to make some treats for an auction benefiting the Relay for Life which raises money for the American Cancer Society.

Check out the baskets of treats & cupcakes I made for the auction!!

And here are some of the other yummy treats I’ve made for a few different charities over the past year or so!!

If you have a charity event that you’d like the bakeshop to participate in please contact me with the details.

This Weekend’s Orders 5/10/14 – Red Carpet, Dr.Who, & Naughty Toppers!!

One of the great things about doing what I do is being able to make stuff for my family & friends. This weekend was my cousin’s daughter 13th birthday & she gave her a surprise red carpet themed party. When she had told me about the party I immediately said I would make the cake & it would be my gift to her.

This was the first time doing a red carpet themed cake & took a few sketches before finally deciding on a design for it especially since I wanted it to be perfect & amazing for the birthday girl.

Even though it was a red carpet themed I wanted to incorporate something special into the cake design, something I knew the birthday girl would squee over so it was an easy decision as to what to do…..I created some edible images of a few of her favorite fandom’s (Dr.Who, Supernatural, & Sherlock) & put them on the film reel topper for the cake.

Check out the pics below of her red carpet cake!!

In addition to the big cake I also made her a very special personal cake. She had asked me on Friday if I would please make her a TARDIS cake. Though I didn’t tell her yes, I told her I was sorry and wouldn’t be able to this weekend….little did she know she would be getting a surprise at her party.

I couldn’t wait to give her the TARDIS cake & when I did I never could’ve imagined her reaction. She was so happy to get it & loved it so much that she actually cried and that right there made all the hard work worth it.

Check out the pics below of her TARDIS cake!!

In addition to the cakes I made this weekend I also received an order from an old friend for some cake & cupcake toppers for her sons’s birthday’s. She decided she wanted to do a boob cake & cupcakes and enlisted me with the task of making a set of boob cake and cupcake toppers. I really did have fun making them & decorating them in different ways like tattoo’s, piercing’s.

Check out the pics below of the toppers!!

This Weekend’s Cakes 4/26/14- Camo Baby Shower and Dr.Suess

I always love when I get to do a baby shower cake and my favorite is the baby bottom cake. No matter what the design or theme they are always fun to make.

This particular baby bottom cake’s theme was camouflage/hunting, a design that always seems to give me a hard time. Despite that I met it head on and I conquered the camo. I also made cupcakes to match topped with camo onesies and little deer antlers.

Check out the pics below of the camo baby bottom cake and cupcakes!

The other cake I made this weekend was a Dr.Suess 1st Birthday Cake. I’ve made many Suess themed cake/cupcake toppers but until now never had the chance to make a Suess themed cake so I was super excited to do this cake. It was a simple design but turned out so cute.

Check out the pics below of the Dr.Suess 1st Birthday cake and smash cake!

Client Creations!! – Hockey Stick Toppers

It’s always such a delight when someone orders toppers from me to use on a cake or cupcakes they are creating. I’m always so excited to see what they’ve created.

This week as you recall I made two very large hockey stick toppers as well as 50 small hockey sticks and pucks cupcake toppers for fellow caker & friend Brenda. While she placed the small sticks & pucks on her cupcakes, she took the two large hockey stick toppers and wrote happy birthday and turned them into centerpieces that later on the cupcakes were placed around. Isn’t that such a brilliant idea?!? Toppers can be centerpieces too!!

Check out the pics below of her awesome creations!!

This Weekend’s Cakes 3/1/14- Smurfette and Disney Car’s

The most wonderful compliment you can receive as a caker is when a client comes back to order again…..or at least that’s how I feel. Nothing makes me happier then having a client come back, it’s like a big pat on the back & saying job well done.

This weekends cakes were ordered by a client who just a few weeks ago ordered a set of baby shower cakes from the bakeshop & was so thrilled that she came back to place another order.

Though it was only a week’s notice I was more then happy to take the order especially when I was told one of the cakes would be a Smurfette themed cake….I’ve made lots of Smurf toppers but never had the chance till now to make a Smurf themed cake so I was excited! The other cake would be a Disney Car’s themed cake and she wanted me to recreate one of my past Car cakes which was a huge delight & compliment.

Check out the pics below of the Disney Car’s birthday cake and smash cake and the Smurfette birthday cake!!
