A lovely Tiffany box

For my cousin Tiffany's upcoming wedding, I decided to make her a cake to celebrate her bridal shower. It was only appropriate that I make a classic blue Tiffany box cake for her :) She loved it! It looked pretty darn good and tasted so yummy!

My last order of my busy week! Put together in a  couple hours :)

I both love and hate working with silver dust- so pretty yet
so hard to get the right coverage!
Proud of my creation!

Love is in the air

Yesterday I had a cake tasting with a couple whose wedding cake I'm making in May. They wanted carrot cake, so I made two different kinds, both layered with a fluffy, spiced Italian buttercream. I used Canadian Living's Best Carrot Cake and Cake Boss's Carrot Cake. Can you guess which one they chose? :)

Of course, it is Valentine's Day tomorrow. It's fun to do orders for this occasion because they're only meant for 2 people, so they're mini and cute! 

Red velvet cake with white chocolate buttercream and dark chocolate
covered strawberries

Happy Valentine's Day to everyone :) Hope your day is filled with love, whether you are in a relationship or not. Stay tuned for a Tiffany-themed bridal shower cake and an African inspired birthday cake!

Catching up

As you can tell by the lack of posts in January, it was quite a slow month for the cake business. I had a few projects here and there, but nothing big. Here are some pictures of my January baking :) 

Chocolate sheet cake with vanilla buttercream for an office function

AJ's second birthday- Red Sox cake. Vegan chocolate cake with
vanilla buttercream. 

Red velvet brownies with white chocolate buttercream- yum!
I'm currently working on a friend's birthday cake and a wedding shower cake. In about a month, I'll be working on a special wedding cake as well as some macarons wedding favours! Stay tuned for pictures :)
