Ph.D.-serts | My Sunshine Birthday Cake | Tampa Wedding Bakery

A few weeks ago, I were asked to create a cake with the theme “You Are My Sunshine.”  I love the design Cora’s Mommy came up with!

You Are My Sunshine Birthday Cake

The 2-tier cake was iced in buttercream and decorated with fondant dots and diagonal stripes.  I topped the cake with a smiling sun with gum paste rays.  And the flavors?  Vanilla cake with fudge filling and red velvet cake with cream cheese filling.  Sure to be crowd pleasers!

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:

Whimsical 50th Birthday Cake

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:

Rubber Ducky Bubble Bath Cake

Here’s a fun cake we made for a little girl turning 1!  Most kids carry around their favorite blanket or teddy bear, but not Lulu!  She carries around her favorite rubber ducky!  So we designed her birthday cake around it and even topped it with a new rubber ducky for bathtime.

Lulu's rubber ducky birthday cake!

The bottom tier was iced in blue buttercream and accented with darker blue and yellow polka dots.  The top tier was decorated with fondant “wooden” planks to make a wooden bathtub.  And the whole cake was covered with buttercream “bubbles.”  The rubber ducky topper is an actual rubber ducky that Lulu was able to play with when the party was over and the cake was eaten.

Hungry Caterpillar Cake for Icing Smiles

We are proud supporters of Icing Smiles, a nonprofit organization that provides custom celebration cakes and other treats to families impacted by the critical illness of a child.  Basically, a family applies to receive a special celebration cake, and bakers volunteer to do the cake for FREE!  It’s really an amazing program – especially considering how many bakers willingly devote their time and resources to make others smile.

We have had the opportunity to bake 2 cakes for Icing Smiles and the most recent one was for an Hungry Caterpillar party. Fun!  The family asked for vanilla cake with strawberry cream filling, but left the design completely up to us.  Here’s what we created for baby Eleanor who was turning 1:
