Country chic and vintage is in! I think the only way you might have missed that is if you’ve been living under a rock. Just teasing. But lace details, rustic elegance, shabby chic…they’re all the rage right now.
Last month, I created a cake for my birthday buddy! Hadley was born on March 13th just like me….only 31 years later… Anyway, we will forever be birthday buddies!
Her Mommy planned this super fun Pancakes & Pajama Party and gave me complete free reign to design the cake. The only request was that I use pink and yellow. Hadley’s Mommy is very crafty and loves to sew so I definitely wanted to incorporate some fabric effects onto the cake. I also happen to know that she loves chevron prints so that was a must too.
Be sure to check out all the details of the party on the Tampa Bay Mom’s Blog. So cute and so do-able!
Here’s another fun party we came across while going through old cake photos. Back in June, we created a full spread for Raigan’s 1st birthday.
The ombre effect is so popular in cakes right now! The most common way to use it is with ombre ruffles, and it creates such a whimsical, girly feel. Love it!
A couple of weeks ago, we created Aariya’s 5th birthday cake using the ombre ruffles. Her entire birthday party was like purple overload! The decorations were amazing!
Going through some old cake photos, and we just found this one! Can’t believe we never posted it, but here is Gwenan’s 3rd birthday cake.
It was Princess Belle-inspired with baby pink, true pink, and pale yellow fondant. We used a little bit of stripes, dots, quilting, and flowers to make this cake elegant and feminine. And we topped the whole thing with an edible tiara airbrushed gold.
A few weeks ago, we were asked to make a cake for a young boy’s motorcycle-themed birthday party. We were given full artistic license to do whatever we wanted so we began doing some Google image searches to gather ideas. There are SOOOO many adult motorcycle cakes but very, very few cakes for children. And sometimes, flames & tires are just not what you need for a two-year-old boy’s party.
So we decided to go with a checkered flag theme:
All too often, adults don’t celebrate their birthdays with cake. This is a big problem (at least if you ask us)! But when we adults do celebrate, we celebrate in a big way! 30th, 40th, and 50th birthdays are huge!
We recently sat down with Brenda to design her own 50th birthday cake. She hadn’t had a birthday party in…well, a loooooooong time…so she fully sketched out her cake before we even met to design it!
She wanted fun, funky, colorful, and sparkly! And here’s what she got:
