Happy New Year

It's hard to believe that 2010 will come to an end tonight.  

Smashing Cake Designs would like to say thank you to all of you that made 2010 a great year for us.   Several cakes were created allowing us to take part in your special celebrations by designing the cake for you to remember.

We are looking forward to 2011 and all the exciting news it will bring.

Here is a small review of a few personal favorites in 2010.
Happy New Year!

Santa got stuck!

This cake was made for a Christmas Party today at a daycare.    I didn't make the delivery so I didn't get to see the reactions, but I hear everyone loved it.   

The chimney is cake and Santa is made from Rice Crispy treats.

Ginger Bread House 2010

After making a Gingerbread house last year my son has been asking to make one for about 2 months now so we finally broke open the box this weekend and made this years house.

I helped him with most of the icing work as this icing was to thick for him to deal with.   He had the fun job of placing all the candies on and sprinkling lots of icing sugar and coconut every where for the snow effect.

Melting Snowman Cookie Tutorial

Well, this has been one very busy month.   I have had a few cake orders (which I still need to post some pictures of), workshops and tons and tons of bark orders to fill.

So with all the work in the kitchen this month I fell behind on getting a Christmas Tutorial ready for you.   So I am going to forward you to the blog of an amazing cake decorator in the States.    She has a tutorial on her site for making these cute melting snowman cookies.   You could also turn these cookies into cupcakes which I did last year.

So hop on over to Truely Custom Cakery

Here are the cupcakes I made last year.

Princess Cupcakes

This order was for 50 cupcakes with Princess for a little girl turning 1.   Loved the colours, her mother requested.  They are so bright and pretty.

Christmas Cookie Decorating Workshop

Join us Tuesday December 14th at 80 Bradford Street in Barrie to learn how to decorate cookies like a pro.   Workshop times will be 11:30am-2:30pm OR 7:00pm – 9:30pm.

During the workshop you will decorate about 2 dozen cookies using 6 different cookie designs.  I will teach you about working with cookie icing and how to get the perfect consistency each time!

Each participant will receive 4 icing tips and 4 couplers to take home and continue creating.

Pre-payment of $30 must be submitted via e-mail transfers or cheques (at least one week before workshop) to   Upon receipt of payment you will receive my favorite cookie and icing recipes so you can pre-make them before class.

I am suggesting all participants buy the Wilton Cookie Cutter 12 or 18 piece set from Wal-Mart which retails for $4.97. This will ensure we are all decorating the same cookies during the workshop.

I only have 6 spots for each workshop so sign up early.   Please be sure to indicate if you are signing up for the day or evening session.
