Bridal Shower Cake

I was asked to make this cake similar to the one I made for Pat's retirement only a bit smaller for a bridal shower.  This was an 8" 2 layer lemon cake with cream cheese filling.


I never tire doing flowers.  We're still in the middle of recovering from the renovations in the kitchen that I can't find my regular backdrop or my new piece I got for Christmas.  The new counter and back-splash will have to do.

Birch Bark Wedding Cake with Cupcakes

After watching several YouTube videos I used a different technique for the look of birch bark and was really happy with how it turned out.  This cake was for the top of the cupcake stand.  It was a 6" two layer chocolate cake with buttercream filling.


First I covered the cake in white fondant and when the edible dyes mixed with vodka painted on the rings to make it look like a stump.  I used a darker brown for the "carving" of the heart and initials.

I also did 16 dozen cupcakes for the wedding in chocolate, vanilla, lemon and carrot; four dozens of each!

Dentist Cake

One of Mr. T's coworkers asked me to do this cake for her sister that had graduated to be a dentist.  She asked that it has a dentist theme with money on it.


This was a 6" chocolate cake covered in vanilla buttercream.  You can tell how humid the day was with the shine on the lettering.  The tooth, toothbrush and bills were made from fondant.

Zebra Cake for Molly

Today we celebrated welcoming Molly to the community.  We had a party in my parents' yard with friends and family to get to meet Molly for the first time and to congratulate Hannah and Andrew with their new daughter.


Molly loves zebras so I had to decorate the cake in a zebra theme.  Her parents love chocolate cake  so of course I made chocolate with chocolate filling.


Molly liked her cake.  She was ready to dive in. :)

Congratulations Hannah and Andrew.  Enjoy the ride of parenting.

Star Wars Cake

Today I went to a MegaCrop for my other hobby, scrapbooking.  It was a lot fun.  Lots of amazing woman, great food and fun prizes.  It was also the chef's birthday and I was asked to make him a cake.  I was so honoured to do so.  The theme was to be Star Wars.


This was a 9 x 13 cookies and cream cake filled with buttercream icing.  I had just ordered the Star Wars cookie cutter set before I was asked to do this cake and it worked out perfectly.


I had to check with my brother to make sure I had the symbols and the colour of the light sabers correct as I had no idea what anything meant!
