Polka dot and pinwheel cake July 19, 2013

I LOVE how this cake turned out! This cake was for a little boy, Evan, who turned 1 last weekend.

I also love polka dots, it’s a well known fact, and I pin wheels – something about that screams “happy”- I’m also obsessed with lime green and aqua blue colour combination. So, when I was asked to make a cake to match this super cute first birthday invitation, I was delighted:

It’s always nice to design a cake that you love yourself or one that I can see making for my boys. I was also asked to make 48 mini cupcakes to match the theme.

Et voila:

I loved making this cake and was pleased that so did little Evan and his parents. This is what Evan’s mom said:

Hi Connie ,

I just wanted to send you a big thank you for the amazing cake and cupcakes. You exceeded my expectations. The cake wasn’t only beautiful but it was super moist and delicious too. All of our guests were thrilled with it as was the birthday boy.

I’ve attached a couple of pictures of Evan enjoying his cake.

Thanks again for the wonderful cake that will be part of our memories for a long time.

Butterfly cake July 4, 2013

Filed under: Cakes — Connie @ 2:00 am

I was delighted when i was asked to make Brianne’s 3rd birthday cake this past weekend. This would be my third cake for the little Miss, and I am always so excited to see what the birthday theme will be.

This year, I was asked to make a girly butterfly 2 tier vanilla cake with chocolate buttercream icing. I wanted it to be a little bit different than just the butterflies and decided to incorporate my fascination with polka dots as well.

This is the final product:

I also received this super nice e-mail from Brianne’s mommy i thought i’d share: “Thank you so much once again for delivering such an amazing birthday
cake. Everyone commented on how beautiful the cake was and even though
you don’t love the baking part of cake-making, it sure is worth it
because everyone thought the cake was delicious and I couldn’t agree
more. And of course, the birthday girl was thrilled to have a
butterfly cake! Here are a few pictures.”
