Hockey Stick Toppers!!

Over the past few years I’ve been able to make all sorts of different themed cake & cupcake toppers in all sorts of sizes but this week I was really handed a challenge by my longtime client & cakey friend Brenda…..make 20in. long hockey stick toppers!!

They were so big that I almost didn’t find a box they’d fit in to ship them! But luckily I did find one. I didn’t know if I’d be able to pull off a topper on such a large scale but the fondant gods were shining on me and I managed to pull it off.

Check out the pics below of the hockey sticks and pucks cupcake toppers and the very large hockey stick toppers!

This Weekend’s Cake 2/21/14- Christening Cross

This weekend’s cake (and cookies) was for a christening for a pair of siblings. I don’t get a lot of chances to do shaped cakes so I was really excited to do this one even if it was just a simple cross (though I can assure you even a cross shape is never that simple…lol). It also gave me another chance to flex my cookie decorating skills which I’ve found I do much better at when using fondant instead of royal icing.

My first hurtle was trying to decide how I would make the cross shape which I decided using a 1/2 sheet cake and cutting it would work perfect. While I had to do a little filling in here and there for a few gaps it did work well.

In the end it all came together and turned out really nice, my client was totally in love with it so my mission was accomplished. Check out some pics below of the christening cake and decorated cookies!!

This Weekend’s Cakes 2/14/14- Minnie Mouse, Construction and a Turtle

This weekend was very busy with 4 cakes & 40 decorated cookies booked to make. The first 2 cakes were for 2 little brother’s birthdays who were turning 1 & 4. They celebrated with a construction themed sheet cake & a turtle smash cake I created for them.

The second set of cakes & cookies were for a Minnie Mouse themed baby shower. I made a baby bottom cake as well as a 2-tiered cake. The decorated cookies I made in onsie, bow & square shapes and decorated them with fondant.

It was a very long & busy weekend as you can see but so enjoyed making these cakes & the cookies.

This Weekend’s Cake 1/31/14- Ipod

Pink Zebra Print Ipod Bieber Cake

Pink Zebra Print Ipod Bieber Cake

This weekend’s cake was a last minute order from a good friend & regular client. She contacted me on Wednesday evening in hopes of getting a cake to surprise her young cousin with & I was more then happy to help.

She wanted a ipod cake in pink with zebra print & because the birthday girl is a huge Justin Bieber fan she asked that the writing say “Happy Birthday Mrs.Bieber” and to add a little something special to really tickle her she asked if I’d make a little fondant diamond ring to put next to the wording.

And with little time to spare I whipped up this cute little 1/2 sheet cake which she totally loved.

Diaper Bag Cake Toppers

If you’ve visited my shop you know that I not only do cakes & other treats locally but I also offer some of my treats and fondant toppers online to purchase and ship all over the world.

Since opening the shop I’ve been lucky enough to meet some amazing fellow cakers who’ve become not just frequent clients but really great friends. One of those wonderful cakers is Brenda, whose been getting toppers from me for over 2 years now.

She does some fantastic cakes & it’s always an honor when she asks me to make a topper for one of them. Recently she asked me to make some baby shower themed toppers for a diaper bag cake she had to make. Here’s a few pics of the cake she created using my toppers (baby bottle, bib, pacifier, baby shoes, buttons, & butterflies). Didn’t she do an amazing job?!?!

*If you’re ever in the area of Allegany, NY or live in that area and need a cake definitely look Brenda up. She does amazing cakes & is a wonderful lady.*

TMNT/Batman Cake Design Ideas

I’ve been trying to get into the habit of sketching out my cake designs before beginning work on it which I’ve found really does help. It helps me not only to visualize the ideas I have in my head but also narrow the ideas down because I generally have about a million design ideas all competing in my head at one time.

So last night I decided to sketch out a few ideas for an upcoming TMNT/Batman birthday cake I’ll be making. These are just a few ideas that made it to paper. (I swear I really do draw much better then this, these were just quick sketches & wasn’t really worrying about neatness.)

Which one do you like best??

From Baby Shower to 3rd Birthday…

Birthday Cakes

Birthday Cakes

I totally love this picture (click to enlarge) that was created by one of my client’s, Heather (whose also now a good friend). It shows all the cakes & cupcakes I’ve made for her son Adrain, from his baby shower to his 1st and 2nd birthday.

I’ve actually been doing cakes, cupcakes & other treats for Heather & her family for over 3 years now and it’s such an honor to be part of their special days and watch everyone grow. It’s also fun seeing how my skills have progressed over the last few years.

This year for Adrain’s birthday I’ll be creating a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle/Batman themed cake & treats. I’m so super excited about it & can’t wait to make it!!
