Baby Bump Cake

Before today, I had this silly notion. I told myself that I wouldn’t do one of those cakes-you know, the ones where the cake is part of a human body. I know, I’m strange. But it just didn’t seem right to me to be cutting a cake like that-like I was taking a slice of a person. Like faux cannibalism or something. Lol. Especially a baby bump cake.

However, there comes a time when every cakorator  is asked to make such a cake. I was asked to make a baby bump cake for today. I figured that I wasn’t going to be the one cutting into it-I wasn’t even going to be there. And I do so love making cakes, so why not? After all, I like to make the client happy. And seeing how much they loved it made me happy, too!  

After seeing their reaction, I would gladly make another human cake. They loved it! 

Congratulations to the momtobe!

Baby Reveal Party Cake

Baby Reveal parties are all the rage these days! I had heard of them-parents opening up boxes of either pink or blue balloons to show their guests which sex their baby would be. I had even heard of them cutting into a cake to reveal either pink or blue. However, I got a call one weekend to make a cake for a baby reveal party… with a twist! For this particular party, nobody (NOT EVEN THE PARENTS) would know the sex of their baby until they cut into their cake!!! How fun! I was so excited to be the only one (aside from the ultra sonographer) to know ahead of time! The parents-to-be went to their ultrasound appointment in the morning and then dropped off a sealed envelope! Once alone, I opened the envelope and read what was inside. I got right to work creating a vanilla cake with the proper coloring. Once baked off and cooled, I frosted it with a white buttercream and created a pond on top with some grass around it (the mom had given me some little rubber duckies to put on the pond). Then I piped on the wording they had asked for:

I sealed the envelope back up and mom came to pick up the cake when she was done with work that day. That evening, at their baby reveal party, everyone stood around the cake. The parents cut into it and put the first slice on a plate to reveal…

IT’S A GIRL!!!

I was truly honored to be a part of this special event! I can’t wait for the next baby reveal party!! Maybe I’ll get to make some cake pops!

Ariel Cake for Kendall

Kendall’s father and I went to school together… and we each have a little girl who was born on July 2, 2007! Although the girls will probably never go to the same school, they will always be birthday buddies! This year, I made Kendall an Ariel cake-a pink one, of course!

Happy Birthday, Kendall!!!

 

60 And Still Fabulous!!

When asked to do a cake for a surprise 60th birthday, I was given a sneak peek at the party decorations. There were pinks, big black polka dots, and zebra prints galore… with the phrase “60 and Still Fabulous!”. Her kids told me she loved high heels, hand bags, and shopping!

My daughter was impressed with the cake, but she was soooo excited that Mommy made “heel shoes”!!

A one-of-a-kind pair of sparkly pink kitten heels-complete with JoAnn’s name on them.

Happy Birthday, JoAnn!!

Princess Mina’s Pink Castle

Once upon a time, not so long ago and not so far away… there was a little girl named Mina. She had a love for castles, princesses, and all things pink! On Mina’s 5th birthday, she had a skating party. The party came alive with skaters; and when it was time, they all sang “Happy Birthday” and ate cake! A pink princess castle cake! (made by me, of course) For at least that one day, the little girl Mina became Princess Mina and she’s been happy ever after!

Pinkalicious!

To quote one of our favorite books: “Pink!” I said. “Pink, pink, pink!”. “More!” I cried. “More, more, more!”. I was asked to do a cake for a “Pink Princess Dance Party” and I was inspired by the book Pinkalicious. I wanted everything to be pink… and the more pink the better! Now, anyone that knows me (I mean, really KNOWS me), knows that I HATE pink!! However, I enjoy the book so much that I just had to use a lot of pink! I made a small

pink cake with pink frosting, pink trim, pink roses, and a pink tiara. I also made pink cupcakes with pink frosting, pink trim, and pink Runts candy hearts. I used metallic pink “Easter grass” as filler for the cupcake tree and sewed a pink paper heart with sheer pink trim that said “Happy Birthday Princess Giana!” It was pink overload! Maybe if the guests at the dance party ate enough dessert, they would have hair “the color of raspberry sorbet” in the morning! After all, it’s not my job as the baker to feed them “a steady diet of green food”! lol.
