Andrew's Birthday Cake

My nephew Andrew turned 6 years old on Friday, and we celebrated yesterday.  He's obsessed with bats right now and wanted a bat cake, not batman, and he wanted carrot cake (turns out, that's what daddy wanted), so that's what he got.  This is a carrot cake with cinnamon cream cheese filling and vanilla buttercream.  The bats are all made from fondant.  Happy Birthday, big guy!  We love you so much!!

Amy and Dennis's Wedding

We had the opportunity to make the wedding cake for a girl I grew up with.  Their wedding was in Vallejo, CA at The Hiddenbrooke Golf Club.  Everything was milk chocolate cake with strawberry filling and vanilla buttercream, and all the flowers are handmade from gumpaste.  The grooms cake had an image of Zelda and Link on it.  We had a great time doing these cakes, and a great time at their wedding!!  Thanks so much Amy and Dennis for having us be a part of your big day!!

A 25th Wedding Anniversary

I made cupcakes for a clients 25th wedding anniversary party today.  They were Triple chocolate and vanilla velvet with a vanilla velvet with raspberry filling cutting cake.  The cupcakes had silver edible glitter on them, but all in all, we kept everything fairly simple.

Janine and Ken's Wedding

We delivered a cake to Los Gatos this morning (that was a long delivery) for the wedding of a good friend of ours. Janine and Ken's wedding was lovely, despite the heat, and we had a wonderful time. I'm very pleased with how their cake turned out, possibly one of my favorite wedding cakes we've done so far. The bottom tier was Chocolate fudge cake with vanilla cream bavarian cream filling, middle tier was mocha fudge cake with mocha mousse filling, and the top tier was vanilla velvet cake with strawberry filling all frosted with vanilla buttercream. All the flowers are handmade gerbera daisies. Congratulations Ken and Janine Tinsley, we're very happy for you!!

it's been a while

From the blog readers point of view, it may seem like I haven't had any orders for a while, but I've just been so busy with work, teaching, and orders that I haven't had a chance to post anything (and I was on vacation too).  We've had a lot of kids cakes these past weeks and they've all been quite cute.  I'm just going to put this out there...the Mickey Mouse cake was made for my nephew and I was at my parents house when I made it which means that I didn't have any of my normal supplies.  Obviously it wasn't the best cake I've made, but it was still quite cute!!

Our latest yummy things

In the past two weeks we've had a few orders.  First, last weekend we had wedding dress cookies for a bridal shower: vanilla sugar cookies with vanilla royal icing. This weekend we had two cakes, a small 6" cake for a one year old's birthday party (Vanilla velvet cake with vanilla buttercream), and a three tier for a going away party for a guy that is going into the Air Force (triple chocolate fudge with cookies n' cream filling and vanilla buttercream).

A few cupcakes

This week I had the privilege of teaching a cupcake class for the first time at the store because the normal instructor was unable to.  I had never taken the class before, so I was a little unsure of how it would go.  They all said they really enjoyed it and the cupcakes turned out really are the ones I demoed in class and then the students took my example and did their own:

Also, this weekend I had an order for a lady from my church for cupcakes for a bridal shower she was hosting for her niece.  The brides colors are raspberry and teal, and the flavors she chose for the cupcakes were triple chocolate cake with cookies n' cream filling and vanilla velvet cake with raspberry filling.  The raspberry filling was wonderful...we absolutely loved it!  Kathy, I hope you enjoyed the shower and the cupcakes were loved by all!

a massive amount of cupcakes!!

We had three events this weekend for a total of 484 cupcakes. 54 cupcakes went to a women's brunch Saturday morning, 120 mini cupcakes were delivered to a wedding reception in Walnut Creek, and 300 were delivered to a wedding in Oakdale. The first cupcakes were triple chocolate with cookies n' cream filling, and vanilla with strawberry filling and both frosted with vanilla buttercream, and I made lavender and pink fondant daisies to go on each. The second order had 4 different flavors: german chocolate, strawberry lemonade, carrot, and vanilla. All were frosted with vanilla buttercream, except the german chocolate, and they each had a gumpaste flower on top. The final batch were half triple chocolate and half vanilla, frosted with vanilla buttercream and each one had a crystalized viola on top.

Super Chocolatey Goodness and a Cake Tasting

I made a cake for a bakery located nearby my place of employment this past weekend, because they make pies and the owner didn't want a pie, he wanted a cake...a chocolate cake.  The cake I made for him was triple chocolate fudge with chocolate mousse filling, chocolate buttercream and chocolate ganache on top with chocolate roses.  I haven't talked to him yet, so I hoped he liked it.  The other thing we had this weekend was a cake tasting for a brides wedding cake we're doing in July.  The flavors she chose were apple cinnamon, chocolate, vanilla, mocha and peanut butter chocolate chip.  We had a lot of fun, and ate a lot of cake.  Congratulations Janine and Ken, we can't wait to make your wedding cake!!

We made these cakes this past weekend for a 60th birthday and a 9th birthday.  The first cake for the 60 year old was Chocolate with strawberry filling and vanilla with strawberry filling.  The birthday girl loves to Salsa and she loves gardenias, so I made a sugar gardenia for the front of the cake and hand painted the faux-spanish design around the border.  The jewels are made from chocolate.  The second cake was chocolate with chocolate chunk cream filling and vanilla buttercream.  Happy Birthday!!

Caleb and Jason

We celebrated my nephew's 9th birthday and my brother in law's 30th birthday this weekend and I made the cakes..are we surprised at all...I didn't think so. My nephew, Caleb, loves Star Wars, so I made a Star Wars cake for him, and Jason, my B-I-L is a General Contractor, so I made a tool cake for him. They both LOVED their cakes (Caleb had the best reaction when he saw his), and they tasted yummy too. Tool cake was triple chocolate with strawberry filling and Star Wars cake was triple chocolate with cookie's n' cream filling, and both were frosted with vanilla buttercream.

My 25th Birthday Party

So, March 8th was my 25th birthday, so I had a birthday party on Saturday, and yes I made my own cake. My birthday party had an owl theme, and if you know me a little bit, you know that I love owls. It was a tea party and I had some fun desserts/favors to go with the theme. Thanks for checking it out.

I made sugar cookies and printed the owls on edible paper, the cake was triple chocolate with cookies and cream filling and vanilla buttercream, owl lollipops were amaretto dark chocolate, and the theme owls were on the invitation also
