The Cake Chick

Why? Because life is sweeter with a little cake …

Engagement cake April 30, 2013

Filed under: Cakes — Connie @ 11:22 pm

My little brother is finally engaged … About a month ago they went to New York for a little long weekend getaway and he proposed. I am thrilled to have a sister in law … This past weekend her family threw an engagement party to celebrate Italian style. We had an amazing Italian feast, only thing missing was the cake. Nona Maria asked me to make the cake, so I jumped at the chance to make something special for them. I’ve been wanting to try the fondant ruffles on a cake, as well as the anemone sugar flower, so this was the perfect time to try it. Time consuming, I must say, but I was happy with the turn out…. What do you think ?

Go bananas Curious George birthday cake April 25, 2013

Filed under: Cakes — Connie @ 3:18 am

This last weekend I was asked to make a 2nd birthday cake for my super fantastic friend Catherine’s son Callum.

She had mentioned that they were wanting to have a Curious George party and send along this fun birthday invite:

I was thrilled to have the opportunity to help once again (last year Callum had the Animal playing drums cake),plus… Hello Curious George!! I love this little monkey and so do my boys.

Cal’s mom sported a monkey mask like a champ and Cal’s dad was dressed as the Man in the yellow Hat. They even died the shirt and pants themselves and used a cowboy hat and some black felt to come up with the famous yellow hat.

They had a bouncy castle in the backyard, a ton of treats, awesome loot bags, even a movie full of milestones going back to Cal’s birth.

This was a swingin’ good time party and if you’re looking for a fantastic Curious George birthday Cake, this is the perfect cake to “Go Bananas” over!

Happy 2nd birthday Cal!

Rapunzel cake April 11, 2013

Let down your hair and check out this super cute Rapunzel cake I made last weekend.

I made this cake for my super awesome daycare provider’s daughter, Madison. She really loves the movie Tangled and is especially a big fan of Pascal, Rapunzel’s sidekick and adorable color-changing chameleon.

Ashley is super creative, innovative and fun, especially when it comes to all the daily crafts she makes with my boys. They are thrilled and so proud to show me their creations every day. So, no wonder, when it came to her own princess’s birthday time, she had Rapunzel come and visit in person and play sing along songs, play themed games, interactive story time, dress up time and cake ceremony time.

I was told there was a lot of ‘ooohing’ and ‘ahhhhing’ from the other 7 year old girls, and even Rapunzel herself was impressed.

Happy 7th Birthday Madison!
