Happy Valentines Day! While many people (myself included) think that this holiday is over-commercialized, it is still a day set aside to remind us to love each other. So if you do nothing else today, make an effort to love others and tell your friends and family how special they are to you.
Ok…*stepping off my soapbox*…last weekend, I was able to help sprinkle a friend with love. She is having her 2nd baby and, while she doesn’t need a full baby SHOWER, we gathered to “sprinkle her & the new baby with love.” The cake was a giant cupcake carved out of 4 layers of 6-inch round cakes. It was covered with fondant and decorated with fondant rainbow sprinkles and fondant hearts. And the flavors – white almond with Bavarian Cream filling.
It’s Monday! Let’s freshen the new work week with a gorgeous, elegant cake. Later this month, we’ll be making Andrea’s & Anthony’s wedding cake (It is TOTALLY different from this one. We can’t wait to show you!), but Andrea’s mom & sister wanted to surprise her with a bridal shower cake as well.
So we met in secret (Have we mentioned how much Mel loves sweet secrets?? Gender reveal cakes, surprise cakes, etc!) and designed this beauty:

We are thrilled to share this cake with you! Vinny Lecavalier, captain of the Tampa Bay Lightning NHL team, just played in his 1000th game. That is quite an achievement! So to celebrate, the team held an after-game reception in his honor last Friday night.
When Vinny’s wife asked us to make the cake for the celebration, we were elated…and honored…and a little nervous…all at the same time. For such a special celebration, this cake had to be perfect!
After designing the cake with Caroline, we got right to work. The flavors were red velvet cake with cream cheese filling, chocolate cake with Bavarian cream filling, and white almond cake with raspberry cream filling. Yum!
Did you see the latest Gender Reveal Cake we posted on Facebook? One of Mel’s good friends just announced her pregnancy and wanted to reveal the gender of the baby among a small group of friends. While she wants to remain anonymous until she can contact all her friends and family, we just can’t leave you hanging. Here’s the big reveal moment!!!
We decorated a very special birthday cake this week. Well, all our cakes are special in their own way, but this one stood out because this is the 3rd cake we’ve made for this family.
Vivian’s birthday was quickly approaching and she was browsing our website with her Mom. Vivian said, “Mom, there’s Kyle’s cake (the Graffiti cake under “Graduations”) and there’s Ava’s cake. I’m the only one without a cake on their website!”
Well, that just won’t do! Vivian’s only request for her birthday cake was that it include their family pets – an American Bulldog and a Pug. No problem!
Super hero-themed birthday parties are so IN! We’ve been dying to try our hands on a super hero cake, and the opportunity finally arrived when Kenneth’s Mom (aka Katy at Birdie Baby Boutique) asked us to make his cake. Yes!
Mel also had a giveaway on her Facebook page, and the winner of the $15 gift certificate was….*drum roll please*…Sheryl Aman! Sheryl, check your Facebook Messages because we sent you the instructions for claiming your gift certificate.
