Dora & Boots Halloween birthday

This past weekend we also made a cake that came by request from Brigitte for her little girl's 3rd birthday.  Brigitte happened to be at the party the weekend before when we made the FCB soccer jersey cake and loved it.  Brigitte sent me a picture of Dora and Boots dressed up for Halloween and asked if we could put them on Audrina's cake as she loves Dora.

This cake is a 9"x13" double layer chocolate vegan cake filled with vegan buttercream and sprinkled with a little oreo cookie crumbs.  We took the picture that was sent to us and traced Dora and boots and recreated them in fondant for our cake topper.

And in keeping with the Halloween theme we added a few ghostly details around the cake and used black & orange for the lettering, trim and pumpkins.

We wish Audrina a very happy 3rd Birthday!

Wendy's birthday

This past weekend a dear friend and neighbour celebrated her 58th birthday and her partner Kim asked if we could make her a cake since a few of their friends were coming to help celebrate. 

Kim was playing around with the # 58 and sent me an email with what she wanted on the cake. Pretty clever huh? Except that 5 - 8 actually equals -3 but who's counting. The cake is an 8" square vanilla cake filled with white chocolate mousse & fresh strawberries.

We added blue fondant flowers since blue happens to be Wendy's favourite and since the lettering was done in a navy blue we thought covering the cake in yellow complimented the blue.

Happy Birthday Wendy!
and many more, just remember it's only a number.

FCB Birthday

This past Saturday we delivered a cake for a 40th Birthday. Josie, a friend of one of my close friends asked if we could make a cake for her hubby's 40th after the cake she had already ordered else where cancelled on her. Josie sent a picture of a cake she already had in mind for her hubby who for obvious reasons is an FC Barcelona fan.

When recreating a team logo and colours it is always a challenge but I think we did okay here. Mel mixed the colours of the fondant perfectly to the team colours of burgundy, navy and gold.  All details including the team crest were made with fondant.  The cake requested was our deliciously moist red velvet cake with a cream cheese filling.

Happy 40th Birthday Zyad!
All the best wishes for many more happy years!

Adriana's 3rd Birthday!

Well back from vacation and it's back to work. Our 1st cake back is for our little sweet Adriana, Jackson's little friend who turned 3.  Her mom Steph sent us a photo of a cake done by PinkCakeBox in NJ and asked if we could make it for Adriana. We thank Anne from PinkCakeBox for the inspiration, she is a very talented cake artist and we hope we made her proud with our adaption.

Though this is a 3 tiered cake the top tier is only a dummy cake as they did not require so much cake for the party. The 2 bottom tiers are vegan chocolate cake filled with an Oreo butter cream made with vegan butter.

The # 3 topper is made from gum paste where as all the flowers, monkeys and trim are made from fondant.


We wish Adriana a wonderful fun filled year with lots of love.

Happy 3rd Birthday Adriana!
