Izzie's 2nd Birthday - Barney

I guess Barney is still pretty popular with the little ones. Izzie who was turning 2 last Sunday adores Barney, so her mom Kasia asked if we could make her a Barney cake to help celebrate.

This 2 tiered chocolate fudge cake is filled with a raspberry curd and vanilla mousse filling.
All details on this cake are made with fondant including Barney who is jumping out of the top tier to surprise Izzie. 

We gave Izzie a garden of bright flowers under a cheerful sun with blue skies, fluffy white clouds and a bright rainbow.

Happy 2nd Birthday Izzie!

Anitha & Sathies wedding

Well it's back to work after my wonderful vacation. Seems like we just got back but it's almost a week.  And tonight hubby and I are attending a friend's wedding reception and I was delighted to be able to make their wedding cake for them.

The Canadian reception is tonight but they actually had their formal vows and Indian reception last week which Aldo and I were not here to attend which is a shame as I have never attended an Indian
 wedding before. But we heard from friends that it was superbly done.

Anitha requested a simple 3 tiered cake in her choice of colours, white, turquoise and black. The cake is vanilla cake filled with white chocolate mousse for all 3 layers.

The flowers are all done in gum paste and the vines are done in black fondant.
We are looking forward to a wonderful evening in helping Anitha and Sathies celebrate a new wonderful life together.

Polo shirt double birthdays

This cake was requested on a last minute through a friend who recommended us. The day this cake was required was the day we were leaving on vacation. I decided to go ahead and make this cake since they agreed to pick the cake up the night before I left. Plans don't always work out......the cake wasn't picked up the night before but thanks to a terrific neighbor who stepped in and greeted my customer for the pick up while we were on our way.

The cake requested was a vanilla slab filled with vanilla mousse and made to look like a Polo shirt. All details are done in fondant.  Due to the short notice I didn't get a chance to get the Polo insignia printed on edible paper so the shape of the insignia was cut out of fondant.

Happy Birthday Boys! Hope you had a fantastic day!

Peek a Boo Mia!

This next cake was done for Martha's daughter who is expecting a little bundle soon. Knowing that the new little addition is going to be a girl the happy parents have named her "Mia".

This cute little cake is done in vanilla cake filled with vanilla mousse and fresh strawberries.  All details done in fondant.  The animal print is painted on with edible food colours.

Congratulations to the Mommy-to-be, we wish you all the happiness
Motherhood can bring!

Oh Lordy Look Who's 40!

This next cake was also for the 16th of August for my BFF's son, who my hubby also confirmed, who turned 40. My time flies! A few friends and family gathered to help Fred celebrate in 80's fashion. Marisa, Fred's mom, requested the cake to be in the shape of Fred's favourite drink.

The slab cake is in our favourite flavor, chocolate Guinness filled with white chocolate mousse, and shaped to look like a bottle of Crown Royal.  Which seems a little funny cause it probably should have tasted like Crown Royal......oh well. All details are done in fondant with the label being an edible print.

Happy 40th Fred!

Happy 60th!

Ok time to catch up. Had a little trouble with up loading my pictures and the next few pictures are of cakes I had done before going away on our vacation. This pretty cake was requested by a friend of one of our loyal customers and friends.  A surprise party for Melissa's mom's 60th birthday on the 16th of August. 

Melissa requested an ombre ruffled cake in turquoise as it is her mom's favourite colour.  This 2 tiered caked is made up of vanilla cake with the top tier filled with raspberry curd and lemon mousse and the bottom tier is filled with a strawberry curd and French vanilla mousse.

Ruffles done in fondant, the top tier is boarded with edible water colours. The # 60 and flower are done in gumpaste.


We wish Melissa's Mom all the best wishes for a fabulous birthday!
