Peacock Bridal Tea Cake

We were contacted a few weeks back by some of our dear friends about doing the Bridal Tea cake to feed 20 for our awesome friend, Amanda.  They left design and flavor up to us, but her sister suggested peacock theme/colors since she knew Amanda loved that.  We knew her wedding colors included a Tiffany Blue so we played that into the design of the cake.

We decided to go with a two layer 8″ round cake with a single layer 6″ round cake on top.  We went with a vanilla cake with strawberry filling, covered in buttercream as this is what her wedding cake will be.  We wanted to give her a taste of what’s to come.  We also covered the cake in Tiffany Blue colored marshmallow fondant with a luster dust shine.  After the cakes were stacked and the sparkle of the dust was added, we made a fondant ribbon to wrap around the base of each tier.  We then wrapped a silver band around the center of each ribbon.  We then added a fondant bow and the peacock feather to the bottom tier.  After 4 hours baking/decorating the cake was complete.

The excitement came when it was time to deliver.  As we arrived at the Bridal Tea destination, which so happened to be a local bakery with a dining room/party room, Ben went in the ask where to place the cake as we delivered thirty minutes before the Tea and none of the guests or hosts had arrived yet.  After they showed him the location, he came back out to get the cake and went in as the owner held the doors open.  It was then that Ben was asked if the cake had been made there. After Ben informed him we were in charge of the cake, he was told that it was not allowed on the premises.  So here came Ben back to the car with the cake as I called the Bridal Tea Hosts.  The heated Bride was immediately on the phone with the owner and succeeded with the argument.  (Way to go, Amanda!) Two minutes later our cake was on the cake table inside of the bakery, ready for the Bridal Tea.  Stressful moments have finally led to some giggles, as we have never delivered to a bakery before and will never forget this experience!

We love you, Amanda! We cannot wait to witness your special day!  God Bless you both.

Out of This World

Lindsay contact us a few weeks back, wanting a birthday cake for her son who was turning 3. She wanted an Orange Creamsicle Cake with Buttercream to feed 30 in the shape of a rocket.

We began by baking a football shaped pan and a 12″ square cake. We placed the football shaped cake on top of the square and cut away the same shape plus added the two “legs” if I can call them that (as I have no clue what the correct term is) and a slope that we would layer buttercream flames on. We put a layer of icing between the cakes and then covered the entire sculpted cake with buttercream. We piped a stripe, windows and stars, outlined in red and filled in the stripe and legs with dark blue buttercream. We then piped in the rest of the rocket with light blue buttercream. We mixed up red and orange buttercream and put them both in the icing bag at the same time and piped on the flames at the rear of the rocket. This caused the red and orange to swirl and blend together when piping. After four hours, it was complete.

Thank you, Lindsay, for allowing us the opportunity to create a special cake for your son! We hope he had a wonderful, exciting birthday.

Baby Bump Cake

Tana contacted us a few weeks ago regarding a baby shower cake. She wanted a marble flavored Pregnant Belly cake to feed 25 with the figure wearing a baby blue dress and zebra stripe accents to celebrate the little boy on the way.

We baked one soccer ball pan to form the belly and two small ball pans to form the well-endowed momma-to-be breasts. We covered with buttercream and then a layer of baby blue fondant to form the dress. We colored a small triangle piece of fondant tan and placed it on top to form the cleavage. Baby blue strips of fondant were cut and placed as the trim of the dress. Next, we used white fondant and created the bow, ribbons and trim around the top of the dress. We painted zebra stripes on the bow and ribbons. After four hours total, the cake was complete.

A Blue Birthday

Jannette booked a cake for her son, Cade, when she ordered the Hello Kitty cake back in February for her daughter, Kailyn. She wanted a chocolate Smurf cake to feed 20.

We baked a 12″ round chocolate cake and cut out the shape of the Smurfs face and hat. We covered the whole cake with blue buttercream, piped in the white hat with buttercream. We piped a black outline around the hat, ears, eyes, nose and mouth and piped in a red tongue and it was complete.

Happy Birthday, Cade! We hope you have a very special day and enjoy your cake! Get ready for blue mouth pictures and devour that cake! Gargamel would be proud!

Pink or Blue???

Darrick, our realtor, called us Friday evening and asked if we could make a surprise gender cake. They had received the gender of their baby in an envelope earlier that day and wanted us to create a cake that would reveal the sex of the baby when they cut into it. We had plans to be out of town for the weekend and were going to push the cake up to this week, but my heart went out to his wife and the anticipation to know what they were having so we called them back and told them to meet us with the envelope and we’d do it that evening. Within a few minutes, Darrick handed over the envelope with the surprise inside. As soon as they left, we immediately opened it. To be the first know the gender, even before the parents, felt amazing and so very special.

We ran home, baked two 6″ square vanilla cakes with the addition of food coloring to reveal the gender. We covered it in thick white buttercream to hide any of the cake that may show through and piped pink and blue pin stripes around the cake, followed by a white shell border. We piped “Sweet Baby Jackson” with alternating colors. Within two and a half hours, we baked and decorated, called Darrick back and delivered the cake. They waited until the next evening to cut it so that family could be there to take part in the special moment.

Congrats to the Jackson Family on your sweet baby boy! Thank you for allowing us to take part in such a special time in your lives. It meant the world to us!
