Happy Birthday!

Todays post is children's birthday cakes. These are probably what i spend most of my time doing. Most of the time it's elmo, thomas the train, dora, or cars. However these were all a little different than what people normally get. 

This first cake was my hands down favorite, as it was one of my favorite tv shows growing up. Richard Scary's busy busy town. I had no idea they still played it. (all decorations made of fondant) This is the top view of the cake

Heres the side view, there's ants,worms, butterflies, ladybugs, blueberries, and magnifying glasses. I was a little confused about the blueberries but she requested them so hey as they say the customer is always right.  

I really liked this next one too, they were having a pirate themed birthday party and this is what the invite looked like, i don't think you can see it in the picture but the fish in the treasure chest has an eye patch. (all decorations made of fondant)

I have to be honest with you i was a little leery about this next cake. It's a character olivia the pig, now some people find her very cute. However i am not one of those people, in fact i found her very creepy at first when i was looking up pictures of her. So anyway i got over my fears and made the cake, and was actually pleased with the way it came, and think she does look quite cute. (all decorations made of fondant)

This last one is bugs bunny if you didn't know :] They wanted him fishing on a beach, bugs and the fish are made of fondant, and the sand is cookie crumbs. 

Well that's all folks !

Bridal Shower cakes

We've been getting a lot of orders for bridal shower cakes recently. I guess it's wedding season :] 
There seems to be a trend of people having simple color schemes then having these brightly colored, very fun elaborate napkins, and then they want us to coordinate the cake with the napkin. I really love the way these cakes turn out so i hope this is a trend that will stick. So here's a couple that I've done recently. 

This first one was actually a friend of a previous client, and was at her birthday party. Her friend had done the whole matching napkin cake thing and she really liked it so asked if we could do the same for her. I posted that cake previously, you can see it here it's the 3rd cake down the flower one.

This cake is iced with buttercream with fondant flowers, and buttercream piping.

This one was for a wedding shower as well, The napkin was this peacock with the "feathers" swirling. They got cupcakes too, with the peacock feathers on them too, i forgot to take a picture of those though. I liked the colors of this one a lot.

The cake is iced with vanilla icing, and the decorations are made of fondant. 

I'll try to have another post tomorow :]
