Sandcastles

What little girl wouldn't love to build sand castles on her birthday. Well that was the intention of this party, however the weather didn't cooperate so our Hula Girl party was indoors and instead of sand castles in the back yard, the birthday girl requested a sand castle cake.

I will be the first to admit, the photo does not do the cake any justice at all, infact I was reluctant to put the photo up, because it just doesn't look great. All the detail is lost and it just looks like a mound of sugar. Yes, there was a lot of delicious tasting sugars on this cake, but in real life, this looked like a very cool sand castle that everyone oooh'd and ahhh'd over, and it tasted amazing too.

So Happy 6th Birthday my sweet sweet girl, I hope this party was everything you imagined it to be.

Happy Birthday

Although not quite 1 yet, we had my son's birthday party today, a John Deere themed party. What a hoot that was, all the kids loved the party goodies, and of course the cake. I loved how it turned out, and it tasted pretty darn good too....






Happy Birthday my Sweet Sweet Boy!!!!

Ranch Wedding

This cake was so delicious and turned out fabulous. I was a bit nervous when making it, especially when my cousins mother in law thought it was a YAK when she entered the house while we were in the middle of creating. Once we added the top hay bales and put it inside the wagon, it all looked as it should and the bride and groom were very happy with it, as was the Mother of the bride. They even made special note of it, and asked me to stand, I was slightly embarrassed (I don't do well in the spot light), and I think the best thing for me, is how everyone came over to take photos of the cake and compliment me on how it. I must say it is definitely an original!!!

Congratulations Marisa and Chris, the wedding was fabulous and we had a great time!!!

New Cakes

I have created a couple of new cakes in the last couple of weeks.

The first is Lightening McQueen, great little cake for the boys. 3 little boys to be specific. There are 3 boys in my daughter's kindergarten class that all celebrated their birthday together, so this was just perfect and despite the food allergies and the changes to my cake recipe, it turned out great and the kids loved it.






The second cake I created, for this past Sat. was a baby shower cake for good friends of mine. We hosted the baby shower, and naturally I was going to do the cake. This is a pre-baby shower, so we didn't know if they are having a boy or a girl, so the cake was created in pink and blue. I really enjoyed making this cake for them, making the little outfits was very fun.

Cinderella

My girlfriend's brother got married yesterday, and his bride to be and I conspired to create this amazing Cinderella Castle Cake. She supplied the castle and the horses, but all the other pieces were my creations. It was a lot of work and I was happy to drop the cake off at the reception hall, but it was a lot of fun. My husband and I stayed up late Friday night to finish all the minute details and ensure the carriage cake was stable as it was propped up on a small block.

Congratulations Meb and Harj, I hope you and your guests enjoyed the cake and it met your expectations.

My newest Addition....

My gf, who was also Alexis preschool teacher, is getting married end of June, and she and her Mom contacted me to make a cake for her Wedding Shower / Engagement Party this past Monday. She has moved to Calgary now, so this was a combined event for her friends and family back here. Her wedding is going to be a Western Theme on a Ranch, so the Cowgirl Hat was perfect!!!

Please Pick Your Favorites

Ok, I am working on making a gift certificate for my daughter's school gala. I am offering up one (or maybe two) of my cake creations for auction and I want to put together an image of say 8-12 photos to demonstrate the types of cakes I have made. So I need your help.... please scroll through this post and pick your favorites so I can narrow down the selections. There is a RAK envolved for 2 lucky people for helping me out!!!!


Editted to add
Ok just to clarify things a little and make it easier, since I am looking to put 8-12 photos on the photo card, perhaps choosing your top 2 or 3 favorites from each of the categories would be more helpful.
