Vanilla Cupcakes

A friend asked me to make cupcakes with bright flowers. They were vanilla cupcakes with vanilla buttercream. The flowers were made out of fondant and some dusted with gold luster dust.

Lots of flowers....

It was a vanilla cake filled with whipped cream and a home made jam that Wendy provided. The jam and the whipped cream together was amazing, i can only imagine how well it tasted with the vanilla cake. It was covered in vanilla buttercream and then fondant. The flowers are made out of half fondant/half gum paste.

The Big Book

I was asked to make a cake in the shape of a book as her daughter was going to University in Ottawa. It's a chocolate cake that had a chocolate ganache frosting in the middle. Vanilla buttercream and covered in fondant. The writing is gold luster dust with a hint of vanilla.

Cupcakes for the Office

I decided last week to make cupcakes for the office. So i decided to make a batch of chocolate and vanilla cupcakes with a fruit filling. The icing was a cream cheese icing tinted to be orange but came out peach. Apparently they were good but i wouldn't know i don't like cream cheese. :D

Black or White

I was asked to make a cake as a friend was holding a Michael Tribute Party and needed an MJ cake for it.

The bottom layer is a chocolate cake with home made cherry filling and then fresh cut up cherries. The top layer is a vanilla cake with a banana cream filling and fresh bananas. Both covered in Buttercream and covered in Fondant. The MJ glove is made out of Rice Crispy squares covered in buttercream and then with fondant mixed with modeling chocolate. Added the silver balls as an added touch. (All edible)

Michael Jackson's Glove has been Found!

Not really but i thought the Title was cool. I have a cake this weekend and it's a Michael Jackson Themed cake. This is a sneek peek at the Glove. I was going to hold off until the cake was done but i might not get a good picture of it once it's on the cake.

The Glove is rice crispy squares covered with a thin layer of Buttercream and then with Fondant and Modeling Chocolate mixed together.

I painted it with vodka and silver luster dust, it wasn't as sparkly as i had hoped. Then i pressed each of these little silver balls into the glove. In the end it looks pretty cool!

Happy 4th Anniversary

So i was late in wishing my sister and brother in law for their 4th Anniversary. They were coming down a weekend in July so i decided very last minute to make them a cake. As you can tell it's last minute as i didn't get much of a chance to decorate it nicely. The cake was vanilla cake w/ chocolate ganache for the middle and then vanilla buttercream w/ Fondant. The accents are also fondant.

The happy couple!

First Wedding Consultation!

A really good friend of mine is getting married this October and i said i would make her wedding cake at a really reasonable price. Their colors are Teal and Silver, great colors for a fall wedding. So we came up with a great looking cake. 3 Tiered Square cake, bottom layer will be in teal quilted with silver balls. The middle layer will be in white fondant with teal gerber daisies. The final top tier will be in teal with a strip of silver fabric at the top and then their initials as cake toppers. Each layer will be airbrushed with a sheen satin look to give it that extra bling on the cake.

The flavoring will be Lemon w/ Fruit Filling w/ Lemon buttercream, Red Velvet cake w/ Raspberry Buttercream and possibly fresh raspberries in the middle. Then Vanilla cake w/ Chocolate Ganache and vanilla buttercream.

I am so excited as this is my first wedding cake! Here is a color of the bridesmaids dress.
