Four Celebrations and a Wedding

Birthday cakes for men always pose a problem, we want to make them exciting and creative, but sometimes it`s not as easy as it sounds!  This time we were asked to make a country/guitar themed cake for an out door birthday party.  We came up with this guitar cake which we are told was a huge hit at the party. 

For an intimate wedding often not very much cake is required but it's still fun to have a cake that fulfills all the criteria for an elegant and stylish wedding cake that fits in with the theme of the day.  This bride chose blush and gold for this timeless cake and we added the couples initials "S" and a little pink heart which appeared on their wedding invitation. 

We don't often make cakes with a Disney theme (for copyright reasons which we have blogged about in the past).  What we are allowed to do is to take ready made copyrighted items and put them onto a matching cake.  Above is an example of that.  Dressed up with dots and bows, this makes such a cute cake for a little girl or even a grown up princess!

A hand painted cake for Mother's Day.  Imagine this Mom's surprise when she walked in to our tea room on Mother's Day to find this cake waiting for her along with a delicious high tea.

Miniature cakes are often ideal for a small celebration of less than 4 people, or something at the last minute when there isn't time to order a fully custom designed cake.  This little cake was made for a little boys first birthday when he was going to be dressed as a strawberry for a photo shoot because his favourite food is strawberries!
