The Cake Chick

Why? Because life is sweeter with a little cake …

Heineken beer bottle cap August 17, 2012

The Heineken Beer Cap Cake was made for a co-worker’s dad who was celebrating the big 80 and the family wanted to get him a special cake. This cke is well suited for any age birthday celebration, or even St. Patrick’s Day!  This  is a chocolate cake with a vanilla buttercream and fondant finish. Happy 80th!

PS. When my hubby saw this, he quickly said he now wants a Guiness cake…hmmm, something to think about for October.


Angry birds and construction cakes August 10, 2012

These 2 cakes for these awesome little dudes were sooooo much fun to make.

First was Luka’s cake. Luka was turning 5 and like all other boys his age he requested an Angry birds cake. It seems that for the past two months or so an explosion of Angry Birds edibles have popped up. Everything from Angry Birds cakes, cupcakes, cookies, to whatever else these bake-savy minds have come up with are being featured everywhere. Here is my creation:

Next came Maxime’s cake, Luka’s brother who is turning 3. His mom send me this picture for inspiration:

So a construction theme it is! Here is creation #2:

And here are the boys with their cakes:

Happy birthday boys!


Emma’s Ladybug cake August 2, 2012

Filed under: Cakes — Connie @ 4:18 am

I can’t believe it’s taken me over 3 weeks to post this, but it has been THAT busy.

So the lady bug theme turns out to be quite a cute and popular party theme. Emma’s mom requested a 1 tier cake, red and black lady bug, lots of polka dots (as we all know I take every opportunity to add some polka dots to every cake ..LOL). The base was marble cake covered in buttercream icing and the lady bug was vanilla cake. Both were covered in fondant.

Here is what I came up with:

Happy 4th birthday Emma!
