Baby shower cakes are always fun to make, and they can vary widely in style, color, and theme. Here’s one we did a few weeks ago where they wanted it classy and elegant, but still clearly for a baby shower. We adorned the cake with edible, hand-made whimsical flowers and topped the whole thing with hand-made, edible baby sneakers. Who doesn’t love baby shoes?!
These days, wedding cakes don’t have to be iced with white buttercream and adorned with white ruffles, flowers, etc. You can go bonkers with the decorations! Here’s a great example of a wedding cake that’s totally out-of-the-box.
But just because you don’t HAVE to have the traditional white wedding cake doesn’t mean you can’t if you want to. A couple of weeks ago, we created a cake for Kristina and Rich for their wedding at the Bilmar Beach Resort on Treasure Island, FL.
Here’s another adorable birthday party idea – a pajama party! But if your girls are young like Reese (turning 5) and Hadley (turning 2), have an afternoon pajama party! Get the kids hyped up on cake and goodies and then send them HOME to bed. Genius!
Reese’s and Hadley’s mom knew she wanted a pink cake with ombre ruffles, a princess crown topper, and bunny slippers. So this is what we created for them:
Last weekend, Mel baked her own Gender Reveal Cake to break the news to the family. Was the cake pink or blue? Watch this YouTube video of the cake cutting to find out!
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.
Camryn decided to celebrate her 5th birthday with a Garden Tea Party so we created a girly, elegant cake for her. The cake was iced in light blue buttercream with buttercream grass, leaves & stems. The flowers themselves were made of fondant, and we topped the whole thing with a miniature edible tea set.
Happy 5th Birthday, Camryn!
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!
Living in the Sunshine State, it’s hard to avoid beach-themed cakes and parties. But we’re not complaining! We love the beach! For Gabby’s 7th birthday, she chose a mermaid-themed party and wanted a sand castle birthday cake.
Another of my daughter’s friends has turned 1! Jude’s parents are big Beatles fans (hence his name) so they threw him a Yellow Submarine-themed 1st birthday party. How fun and adorable!
Another friend of my daughter’s turned 1 this weekend! AJ’s parents both coach baseball and softball so AJ has spent much of his young life on the field. And the kid loves to throw! He throws anything and everything. He even pretends to throw when there’s nothing around for him to get his hands on. And he’s got a good arm too!
