There's a Snake in my Boot!

Here at polkadots we love making children's theme cakes and last week we made one from the movie Toy Story! Standing about 15 inches tall each of the three tiers is inspired from the movie. The bottom tier also has the popular etch-a-sketch which was sculpted out of colored fondant.

Every Little Thing We Do Is Magic

It's that perfect time of year for every little girl and boy to enjoy the magic and mystery that shines like mystic fairy lights on a warm summer's night. One, much loved little girl received an extra dash of magic in her Fairy Princess Birthday Cake.

The cake was colored to serve as a whimsical stage for an enchanted castle home to fairies. Cheery flowers and butterflies surround the castle in curly vines all under a veil of sparkling silver stars. The ruler is a purple haired princess with a glittery flower petal dress, a silver crown adorning her head and silver fairy wand to match.

The fairy princess was built with a wire frame that was then covered in various layers of fondant to form her body and dress. The curly "4" on top was hand carved to match the whimsical theme throughout the three tiers of the cake. Generous amounts of edible glitter and pixie dust were added to enhance little Kayla's big day.

This three cake tiered serves 60 adults with our 6", 8", and 10" cakes. All the cakes were iced in butter cream rather than fondant in green, blue, and purple that were blended by hand to achieve the graduated coloring. Once again the Polkadots Team achieved confectionery magic!

Let's Go Fishing!

Summer is finally here and boy is it going to be a hot one! Since it's the perfect time to do a little fishing this week, our team made a life size speckled trout fish for a groomsman cake. Why not enjoy a little fish on the side of a cake? Sounds a little fishy to me...

One of our sugar artists, started off with a square piece of styrofoam.  She started carving the styrofoam and added rice krispie treats to make an easier fish shape. Then, it is covered with fondant  and airbrushed detail to make the fish look as if it had just hoped out of the water! But no fresh fish can go without a little ice; therefore, we made ice cube shapes out of isomalt which is a melted form of sugar that solidifies into any shape you mold it into.

The Trout sits on top of a life size wooden tackle box made out of our popular Black Bottom cake. Black Bottom is a Chocolate cake with cream cheese and chocolate chip filling topped with cream cheese buttercream! YUM!
