Hot hot hot!!

No doubt that the heat is killing me and the girls in the kitchen. My hubby even put a portable AC! I can feel the buttercream and fondant screaming in front of my face, " It's hot and sticky!"

It was a space shuttle for Taryn, the second we put the fondant on the cake... There you go fondant acted up! It looks like fondant has been running two miles with me outside in 100F!  I couldn't wait for nice cool fall weather.

The cake was devils food cake with chocolate buttercream. I just love the color combination. Taryn, we hope you had a great birthday!

Toys, Animals, and Sea Shells!

Well July 4th is over, we had a nice one day break and back to making fun birthday cakes! The first cake was for Hudson. It's a toy story theme, and he specifically requested for woody, buzz, slinky dog and pig. We didn't use fondant for these character, but we used the edible sugar paper instead to get the exact same look for the character - of course it's more economical and less labor intensive. Here is what the cake look like:

We absolutely love making first birthday cakes!  Both clients wanted somewhat elegant/modern cakes, but still with a fun animal  theme!

The next cake was for Maddy. It's a lady bug theme, an 8" round cake and a mini 2" round cake. We've been getting so many request for this tiny cake. Just come and ask us, we'll make it one very special cake for you son/daughter!

Next, a summer theme/beach birthday cake:

Last but not least a surprise birthday cake for one of our client! sssh she's going to be 87! Happy Birthday!!

Thank you for stopping by!

Stripes and Stars!

Happy 4th of July! Hope all of you got some fun time with family and enjoyed all the festivities this past week. We celebrate this week at work with little festive red, white, and blue birthday cakes and cookies.

The first one was a birthday cake for Deleon. It's a vanilla cake with chocolate buttercream and covered with red vanilla buttercream. It's accent with white and blue stars and ribbon. I finished the cake with the red, white, and blue dots around the cake.

Next, a simple red, white, and blue stars cake for Angelica:

Some festive red velvet cupcakes  with stars, flag, and fire work fondant decorations.

We also delivered Britton and Austin's wedding cake to Villa Antonia, Jamestown -TX. Three tiered simple cakes, the flavors from top to bottom: vanilla, red velvet, and our signature blackbottom cake. We decorated with simple dots border and stacked them with fresh red roses. Congratulations Britton and Austin! Thank you for letting us to be a part of your special day!
