Sorry to miss a post here and there...been having some technological difficulties with the blogging feature. Check out two new cakes this weekend: The first was an 80th birthday cake for a man who still plays bass fiddle in a string band! The cake, which was pound, chocolate chip and chocolate ganache, and chocolate/ganache, and buttercream was covered in white fondant with navy and yellow accents. The cake features a figure of the honoree and his instrument along with a custom fondant 80 topper. What a fun cake, and it matched the party's decor perfectly! Happy Birthday. The second cake of the weekend was for a retirement party of Radnor's Chief of Police. I truly enjoy honoring police, firefighters, military, and teachers who do so much for our country. In fact I offer discounts if this is who the cake is for so please let me know. The cake which was classic white with buttercream was made to resemble the chief's badge. It is accented with gold lustre, handpainting, and other details. Congratulations and best wishes. Check back next week for an awesome, huge, Cake-Boss esque scene cake!!!
Happy Valentines Day! New pictures in the Cupcakes and Cookie Favors picture gallery - lots of red, pink, and white goodies. I made alot of trays of holiday goodies, each tray with cupcakes, buttercream candies in heart shaped boxes, and Valentines themed sugar cookies. The cookies are shiny if you notice, because I have been implementing a new technique of steaming them quickly like the Cake Boss on tv does. The trays are plastic crystal and come wrapped in festive cellophane with ribbon. They start at $45 and would make a lovely addition to your next party. Give one as a gift or treat yourself and your family! Holiday trays of candy, cupcakes, and cookies will be available for St. Patricks Day, Mardi Gras, and Easter, so order yours now! Check back tomorrow for a few more variations of Valentine's treats. Enjoy!
Hi all! Unfortunately because of some website glitches I have been unable to blog. But plenty of new cake pics to check out. From last week: an Ohio State field hockey cake to commemorate a student athlete signing on to play there -- Congratulations!! The OSU cake is chocolate chip and details are fondant or painted with food coloring. Also, a penguin cake for a first grade teacher who loves/teaches penguins. The pictures are a little hard to tell, but the snow was covered in luster dust, sparkling sugar, and rock candy to look like the real thing. I think I have a new favorite arctic animal now! Also, a really cute order from today. The pirate cake and matching cookie favors were for a bridal shower with the theme of "Congratulations on your new crew member." This may be my favorite cake yet! Lots of little details that match the Babies-r-us linens in their nursery. The cake is chocolate chip, red velvet, and white. The cookies are sugar with icing and fondant and tied up with festive checked and striped ribbons to match. Check back next week for some Valentines Day goodies!
