An Almost-Year full of cakes

The year is almost coming to an end and what better way than to show how thankful I am then to
re-visit some of my favourite cakes I created this year. Although I only started in May of this year I have been blessed to have amazing customers who have allowed me to create edible works of art.

These are some of my personal favourites in no particular order.

Thank you all for an amazing first year!! Hope you all have an amazing New Year!

Iron Cupcake Christmas!

Iron Cupcake Christmas which was put on by For The Love of Cake, was just as fun this time around as it was for Halloween. For this contest, I created Santa's Bake Shop with a mini oven (with a working in it). I received many compliments about my design, however the lack of support I had there compared to other competitors was unmeasurable. (However, Thank you so much to the six of you who did come out to support me! It was greatly appreciated!!!)

There were amazing competitiors once again, so here is what the day looked like...
Since competitor #1 was a no-show...we started with #2 (which was me!)

Competitor #2:
My set-up included hardwood floors, an oven (with a working red light bulb to make it seem as if the cupcakes were baking), a conveyer belt which displayed 4 cupcakes "waiting" to go in the oven, a cooling station, and a packing station. Everything Santa would need in his bake shoppe! My competing flavour was chocolate candy cane.

BSS Cookies @ Deck the Hall

This weekend BSS was hosting their annual Deck the Hall event at the school and my cookies made an appearance at the Bel Ami Headbands table this year. We designed the cookies around the amazing designs of the headbands created for BSS girls by Bel Ami.

Mini Holiday Cupcakes

These mini cupcakes were donated to a Peace by Peace bake sale at UFT downtown. And since the holidays are fast approaching, these cupcakes would be a great idea for holiday parties and corporate parties. (These are mini chocolate cupcakes with vanilla buttercream)

Please e-mail or call if interested in ordering these or something similar for the holidays!

Pink Sneaker Baby Shower Cake

Halloween Dessert Table {Madison's First Birthday}

This dessert table was created for baby Madison's first birthday and since it was a halloween themed party, we decided for that to be the basis of the table. We wanted to convey a girlie feel to the table so the colour palette chosen was Purple, Black and White, with hints of Green.

I included a two tier cake with bats and a sparkly number one on the top tier. The flavours included tuxedo cake with vanilla buttercream.

Both vanilla and chocolate cupcakes with vanilla buttercream and purple and black fondant dots were placed on either side of the table, along with chocolate cake lollipos covered in purple chocolate.

The entire table was DIY including the tissue paper pom poms courtesy of the one and only Martha Stewart, and the cookie hanging trees made by collecting branches from outside and placing them in black baskets.

The cookies hanging from the trees had three different designs and were alternated on two trees.

These were the cookies in their packaging before getting boxed and ready to go that day.

This is the chalkboard pumpkin that made its appearance half way through the party. It was made by painting chalkboard paint on the pumpkin and letting it dry according to the package directions.

Happy First Birthday Madison!!
