Kick Back Island Style

5 Apr

I can never get enough of these “scene” styled cakes. This particular 8″ pina colada cake was for a tropical themed engagement party. The happy couple was island-bound for their honeymoon, so their friends decided to kick things off with a luau type get-together. Incidentally, this cake was ordered along with the “Booty Biscuits”.

Most of the picture is done with colored buttercream with only the palms, hammock, flip flops and hearts being made out of fondant. This cake always makes me smile!

Booty Biscuits

So, these were done for a special Caribbean-themed bridal shower for one of my favorite Brooklyn designers. They are made with a citrus infused sugar cookie and decorated with vanilla royal icing. They were just as delicious as they were cute!

They were booty-delicious!

Don’t you just miss traditional buttercream wedding cakes? I know I do! Here’s a very sweet and understated 3-teir cake for the beautiful bride Toni and her husband Gary. It’s a mocha cake with mocha buttercream filling covered in an almond white buttercream, decorated with cornelli lace and fresh tulips.

And here is that awesome moment when they cut the cake! I love this part! =)

Sugar and Ice and Everything Nice

15 Feb

My cousin-in-law has been wanting a make-up cake since he and my cousin were married nearly 2 and a half years ago. The top tier of their wedding cake (the one people save and freeze for their 1st anniversary) was jacked and eaten by relatives and it was a sore point with this awesome couple. Since they have gone on their annual anniversary vacation the last couple of years, I’ve had a hard time making them their make-up cake.

Bryan ordered this cake weeks and weeks ago! He wanted to surprise my cousin Lauren in a way she wouldn’t expect. Vday was perfect! I hoped they enjoyed it!!

The inside is vanilla cake and orange infused cannoli filling with mini chocolate chips. The outside is white vanilla frosting, decorated with lilac & silver dragees and clear sanding sugar up top.

Gift Box & Roses

19 Apr

Very understated gift box-shaped cake. What I loved about this order was a new recipe I was able to try out. Butter cake filled with maple and walnut buttercream. It was a rich, maple flavored buttercream with chopped walnuts scattered throughout. It got rave reviews.

On the Way to the Ball

I’ve been going through old photos. This is a Sweet 16 cake I did for a teenager, who was killed a year later. I had so much positive feedback from her family and friends about this  cake. Although the celadon / lime green color was not my choice, I tried to make her cake look like the  Cinderella fantasy she wanted. I think it came out well, and I’m looking forward to future orders for a similar theme.

Vanilla cake filled with marzipan and almond butter cream. Coverd in almond buttercream and royal icing.

Glass Slipper- What's a Cinderella cake without the kicks?!

Full Table View- I think you can see a bit of the "Free" cake the hall threw in for free for their party. No wonder they wanted one of mine! 😉

Grooms Cakes

8 Mar

These cakes were actually for a “Groom’s Shower” at work. (Rather than a Bridal Shower.) The Red & Black cake is made of red velvet cake, strawberry filling, and chocolate ganache frosting on the outside. The strawberries are chocolate dip in a tuxedo motif. The Black & White cake is made of vanilla cake, chocolate ganache filling, and vanilla whipped frosting on the outside, and is also topped with chocolate dipped strawberries in a tuxedo motif.
