Owen & Julian's 2nd birthday

Howdy! There are 2 new sheriffs in town. This year we had the pleasure of making Owen & Julian's 2nd birthday cake and this years theme "Cowboys". 

The boy's mom gave us a few ideas on what she wanted the cake to be. She supplied us with the flags for the top of the cake. This is what we came up with. The cakes are vanilla cakes with vanilla mousse filling though we coloured up the dough for a little fun using the same colours we used on the outside of the cake.


The gold stars and the belt buckle are made from gum paste, all other details are made from fondant.

Mom and Dad were thrilled with the cake when I dropped it off before the party and we received great reviews from guests at the party and we were told the boys loved their cake.
Happy 2nd Birthday Owen and Julian!

"60" is a time for celebrating!

Also on the 29th of December we had another milestone birthday of "60" years young. The theme colours for this special day is black/silver/white.

This 2 tier cake is our ever popular vegan chocolate cake filled with a vegan oreo buttercream. Stars and # 60 is made from gum paste, all other details are fondant.

We added a couple of champagne glasses filled with the bubbly to toast Tony on his birthday.
Many Happy Returns!

Minnie Mouse Birthday

The weekend between Christmas and New Years proved to be a busy weekend. First we had a special little girl turning 1 year old. This special little girl is Senya, and we had the pleasure of making her baby shower cake and her Christening cake and now this milestone birthday of "1".
The theme for Senya's birthday is our beloved "Minnie Mouse".  A cake, cupcakes and cookies were requested.

This 10" round vanilla cake is filled with our yummy cookies & cream and covered in pink butter cream. The 6" vanilla 1/2 round making up Minnie's head is covered in black fondant as are the ears. Bow & # 1 are made from gum paste, all other details are fondant.

Vanilla cupcakes with pink butter cream icing with fondant details. The cookies are our yummy sugar cookies also decorated with fondant, and each little guest received a cookie with their loot bags.

We wish Senya a very Happy 1st Birthday!
