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.

Buttercream Roses for Mom!

Mom #2 (Ben’s Mom) celebrated her birthday on September 11th as well.  Since she is in love with our buttercream, we decided to do her a cake that used tons of it (we’ve been wanting to try our hand at this cake for a while now).

We baked 2 6″ round chocolate fudge cakes and covered in a layer of buttercream.  We then used the 1M enormous tip and created roses all over the cake.  This took us about 2 lbs of buttercream for this small cake.  To finish it off, we added sugar flakes all over the cake to make it sparkle.

Happy Birthday, Momma Terri!  We love you!

Purple Lace

Our dearest friend, Holly (whom we love more than cake) celebrated her 29th birthday September 11th.  We tossed around some ideas for the theme of her birthday cake, but decided upon a feminine, dainty design.  We went with a chocolate fudge cake covered in buttercream and purple fondant and decorated with lace/floral buttercream piping.

W baked two 6″ round cakes and covered them in buttercream.  We then colored some homemade marshmallow fondant purple (her favorite) and draped it over the cake.  We used white buttercream to freehand the lace/floral design around the cake.  We finished it up by added a bead border to the base.

We love you, Hols, more than anything!  Hope you had a perfect day!

Sweet Baby Cake

Mrs. Lynne contacted us a few months back for a baby shower cake for one of her co-workers.  She sent me the image of the invitation pictured below and wanted to go with a design that matched.

The cake was to feed 75 so we decided on a two tier design.  She wanted a vanilla cake with buttercream icing and blueberry filling.  To keep the cake uniform and not pick two of the three designs used on the invitation, we chose the bottom large polka dot design for both tiers.  She also wanted a baby blue base for the cake to sit on.

We baked two 12″ square and two 8″ square cakes.  We piped a buttercream border to act as a “dam” to keep the filling inside of the cake.  We then poured blueberry filling onto the cake.

We piped buttercream on top of the filling, placed the cake on top and covered with buttercream.  We repeated these steps for the 8″ top tier.  We then stacked the cakes, piped the brown polka dots and pearl borders.  We tied a brown/blue satin ribbon for the topper.  After six hours, the cake was complete.

Thank you, Mrs. Lynne, for the opportunity to make this cake and congrats to the mom and dad to be!  What a blessing.

Graduation Cake

Melinda wanted a Graduation Cake for her daughter Hollie. She said Hollie liked the Victoria’s Secret pink, sparkly silver which she wanted incorporated into the cake. She decided on a vanilla cake in the shape of an “H” with a graduation cap added as decor.

We baked a 12″ square, and cut out the H”. We covered it in hot pink buttercream and piped a pink bead border on top and bottom. To create the graduation cap, we wrapped a 5.5″ cardboard square with fondant, painted black and added the tassel holder piece on top. To form the tassel, we pushed fondant through my fondant pump to create the thin threads and painted it with silver luster dust. We rolled up white fondant to look like a diploma. We cut out stars from fondant, painted with silver luster dust and topped with silver sugar sparkles. We piped in the lettering and it was complete after 5 hours.

Congrats, Hollie!

Angry Cake!

Amanda contacted us last month about doing an Angry Birds cake for her mom’s birthday.  She said she loves the game and wanted to include the characters, especially the Mighty Eagle.  She wanted a vanilla cake to feed 8-10 people.

Ben is obsessed with this game and I have never played it so I was relying on his knowledge to get us through this cake.

We baked an 8″ square cake and covered it in buttercream.  We mixed up some green marshmallow fondant and covered the cake as the grass color.  We mixed what seems to be tons of different colors for each of the characters of the game as well as the rocks and wood.

One by one, we created the characters, starting with the body and adding the tiny details of the beaks, eyes, eyebrows and feather like hair on the tops and backs as well as the neat features of the pigs and the nest with eggs.  Then we created the prop pieces such as the rocks and wood a for the pig side and the slingshot for the birds side.  It took about 4-5 hours just forming all the figures.

After all the pieces were created, we built the scene of the Angry Birds setting out to destroy the Pigs for stealing their eggs.  Lastly, we piped “Turning 60 Makes Me Angry” as requested by Amanda.

After about 9 hours total, we had an Angry Birds cake.

Amanda, thank you for thinking of us to create this fun, challenging cake for your mom.  We hope she has a “Happy” Birthday!
