50th Birthday

This was a cake I was asked to make for a 50th birthday.    I was provided with a few pictures of the woman's house and dogs.  I only took the main features of the house trying to keep it simple and not take way from the dogs which were the main feature on the cake.  Therefore I left out all the greenery on the front of the fence so the dogs could still be seen.  We also added a 50 as the house number for her 50th birthday. 

This cake was a learning experience in many ways, but it was fun to see it coming to life.  

This is the photo I was given of the
Here are the dogs
 and here is the cake....

Monkey Business

This was a fun cake to make for my nephew's first birthday.    My brother and sister in law call him a little monkey so we went with the monkey theme.

Little more butter with your popcorn?

I was asked to make another popcorn cake for a customer.   This family goes to the local hockey games every week and have a running joke with the popcorn at the games.   When she seen this cake, she knew it would be perfect for a family gathering.  This one has a little more 'butter' then the original one I did, which makes it look nicer.

A Mother's Day Cake

This is a cake I did for Mother's Day.  I love how simple but elegant it is.   Taller cakes like these are harder to cover, but I am trying to get over my fear of them...he-he


This cake was for a little guy turning 4.   He seen a larger version I had done last year and told his Mom that was the cake he wanted.   We scaled it down in size, using less dinosaurs and a smaller volcano.   His Mom put sparklers in the volcano which gave it a nice effect of the volcano erupting. 

Cream coloured roses and a special cake for a young man

This was ordered to celebrate a variety of occasions.   Birthdays, Wedding Anniversary and a party with visiting family members from England.   The roses were a good match as it let guests pick away at the bouquet all evening.
 It was also their son's birthday, figuring he wouldn't like a rose bouquet as a cake they asked if I could just do a blue cupcake or something for them.   During that conversation I inquired about his interests to try and make the cupcake a little nicer for him.  Apparently he is saving all his pennies to buy his own big screen TV.  So keeping it simple like they requested this is what I came up with for him.   It's a 5"cake, which would also make a cute smash cake size for 1st birthdays.
