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!
To celebrate, here’s a cake we made last weekend for a sweet girl turning 16 TODAY! What better way to celebrate a Sweet 16 birthday party on Halloween than with a costume party!? Happy Birthday, Samantha!
We all know the old saying, “The way to a man’s heart is through his stomach.” And what Dad would turn down a yummy treat like a cake! Here’s a cake I created for my Dad with lots of hidden inside jokes. Don’t worry though, I’ll share all of them with you. *wink*

I’ve never been much of a fashionista. Heck, any spare change I have, I’d quickly spend on a new cake decorating toy or at Joann’s Fabrics so I can make something for my daughter. So when Kim asked me to make a Tory Burch handbag cake for her niece, Amanda, my first response was, “Who’s Tory Burch?”
Luckily there’s this great thing called a Google Image Search so I was no longer in the dark about what she was talking about. Together, Kim & I picked out this one to make a replica of:
But no purse is complete without all the crucial accessories!
As you already know, we participated in the Taste of New Tampa last weekend. We had a great time and met so many friendly & interesting people! And right in the middle of the event, we were approached by one of the event coordinators who told us that there was going to be a Taste competition. Surprise!!!
We were asked to provide a sample of our choice to the 2 judges. Since we figure you can best judge a cake vendor based on their basic flavors – chocolate and vanilla – that’s all we had with us. So we gave the judges a slice of our vanilla cake.
And the results were just announced. We came in 2nd place for the desserts category! Heck, for a surprise competition and only having basic cake flavors at the ready, we’re thrilled!
Last Thursday, we had our office party debut! Affiliated Engineers, Inc. has recently moved their office from North Tampa to Harbor Island and wanted to celebrate with an open house party. And no party is complete without a cake so they called us!
I won’t lie. It was hard to come up with a creative and fun cake design for an engineering firm. Engineering is full of straight lines, calculations, and precision. And, in the past, our cakes tend to be a little whimsical, fun, and colorful.
