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:

Retro 1960s Birthday Cake

Today, we’re going to take a trip back in time.  This is a retro cake we made in October so let’s take a walk down memory lane while the birthday girl remembers the fun of her youth!

Shannon asked us to make a mod, retro cake from the 1960s for her 50th birthday party.  She was going all out and even asked the guests to arrive in costume!  The ultimate flashback party!

We designed the cake with Shannon by using components she’d seen on other cakes and patterns taken off her party decor.

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???

Gabby’s Mermaid Birthday Party

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.

Gabby's sand castle birthday cake iced in buttercream with brown sugar sand, edible sea shells, and edible drift wood.

Mikaela’s 1st Birthday Party!

We’ve been a little quiet on the blog lately because September and October are big months for us!  But right in the middle of September, Mel’s baby girl turned 1 so we have to share a few photos.

We went with a rainbow themed party because color makes Mel happy, and Mikaela isn’t old enough to express any opinions yet. Although, we’re pretty sure she enjoyed herself. *wink*

Here’s the cake table set-up with Mikaela’s personalized birthday banner, cookie favors, goodie bags, and of course the cake!
