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:
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:
Happy Valentines Day! While many people (myself included) think that this holiday is over-commercialized, it is still a day set aside to remind us to love each other. So if you do nothing else today, make an effort to love others and tell your friends and family how special they are to you.
Ok…*stepping off my soapbox*…last weekend, I was able to help sprinkle a friend with love. She is having her 2nd baby and, while she doesn’t need a full baby SHOWER, we gathered to “sprinkle her & the new baby with love.” The cake was a giant cupcake carved out of 4 layers of 6-inch round cakes. It was covered with fondant and decorated with fondant rainbow sprinkles and fondant hearts. And the flavors – white almond with Bavarian Cream filling.
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.
Did you see the latest Gender Reveal Cake we posted on Facebook? One of Mel’s good friends just announced her pregnancy and wanted to reveal the gender of the baby among a small group of friends. While she wants to remain anonymous until she can contact all her friends and family, we just can’t leave you hanging. Here’s the big reveal moment!!!
Blue! It’s a boy!
We decorated a very special birthday cake this week. Well, all our cakes are special in their own way, but this one stood out because this is the 3rd cake we’ve made for this family.
Vivian’s birthday was quickly approaching and she was browsing our website with her Mom. Vivian said, “Mom, there’s Kyle’s cake (the Graffiti cake under “Graduations”) and there’s Ava’s cake. I’m the only one without a cake on their website!”
Well, that just won’t do! Vivian’s only request for her birthday cake was that it include their family pets – an American Bulldog and a Pug. No problem!
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.
Mel’s having another baby! She already knows the gender of Baby #2, but do you??? Guess the gender and post your suggestion for a name on our Facebook Page for a chance to win a $15 gift certificate from Ph.D.-serts & Cakes! Everyone who comments will be entered to win.
We’ll reveal both the gender AND the winner on Sunday, December 9, 2012. Good luck!
