Children’s Motorcycle Birthday Cake

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:

Pink Pirate Birthday Party

We love when parents approach us with adorable birthday party themes.  We’ve got a couple of super cute ones to share with you this week, but we’ll start with this one for a little girl who was born on Valentine’s Day!

Savannah celebrated her 5th birthday with a pink pirate party and asked all party-goers to wear their best pirate gear.  How fun!  Her mom gave us free reign to design the birthday cake so we used the party invitation (made by Party So Perfect) as inspiration:

Black & Teal Damask Bridal Shower Cake

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:

Vinny Lecavalier’s 1000th NHL Game Cake!

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!

Pink & Black Minnie Mouse Birthday Cake

Ok, it’s official (…well, not really).  The most popular theme for a 1st birthday party in 2012 is Mickey or Minnie Mouse!  And while it’s easy to recreate a design over and over, we also love when people bring us a new design to try!

Last weekend, we made TWO Minnie Mouse cakes!  The first one was based on the cake with the edible convertible and Minnie Mouse topper, but they wanted to replace the car with a set of ears and a bow.  Done!

A sweet Minnie Mouse-themed 1st birthday cake iced with buttercream and decorated with fondant stripes, polka dots, and bows.The second was a totally new design to us.  A pink & black cake with the same ears and bow topper.  Super cute!  Pink & black Minnie Mouse birthday cake decorated with fondant.Which one is your favorite???
