busy week with tons of fun variety

It's May - finally!  All the April showers better bring some May flowers!

I have a fun filled week full of interesting orders everything from Cupcakes with business logos, Cake Pops (the new trend has suckered me in - get it 'sucker' and 'cake pops' - and this is why I'm not a comedian but a Pastry Chef instead!), two Wedding Cakes: a super contemporary three tier square wedding cake design and a five tier round wedding cake done in shades of lilac and lavender, Mother's Day cakes and last but definitely not least an Elmo birthday cake for a little boy turning 2!

Let the week begin!

R2-D2 will attend a birthday party tomorrow

I have the honour of feeling like George Lucas himself tomorrow...when I get to deliver a lifesize R2-D2 cake for a lucky boys birthday party.  I can't wait to see the reaction when I walk through the door cake in hand.  Happy 6th Birthday Jed!  Enjoy your android full of chocolate cake and cream cheese icing!

Anatomy cakes

I find it a little bizarre that I am making three (3)....carved custom cakes all with the 'male anatomy' - YES!  you got it!  as the subject matter this week...not quite sure what to think of that!  So my work studio will be rather x-rated this weekend.  Looking forward to a week full of cute baby shower cakes with rubber duckies and frilly bibs and rattles next week just so that I can recover!!!

Kicking off the wedding cake-a-thon!

Two wedding cakes for this weekend - 4 Tier round cake with peacock feather theme in colours and design and a 3 Tier round elegant ivory cake with hints of small gold brushed blossoms and one striking coral rose...time to get started!

my Gluten-free cakes are so tasty!

I have mastered the art of moist, soft, 'can't believe it's gluten-free' cakes...I'll often bring gluten-free samples to large tasting groups to see if someone can point out a difference....but I trick them everytime!  and for those that have eaten a lot of gluten-free cake - know what a big deal it is to NOT be able to taste a difference in flavour and especially texture!!!  So I'm a proud to say I CAN!

from crawling to RUNNING!!!

...."I'm a big kid now!" the song goes!  I'm all grown website...tweeting...facebooking (ha ha ha - I just totally had a Dairy Queen commercial flashback in my head "did I just use bacon as a verb?!" - that ones for you honey XO

New Website...wooohooo!!! I ready for this - a new website!!!  Just a tad different from what I had before...ha ha ha - that was for my web designer as he so nicely put it when he first saw my old webpage "I don’t think that site is doing anything for you at the present time"

Exciting...yet scary...though launching a website is nothing quite like launching to the moon I shouldn't panic?!?

Stayed tuned...countdown about to begin...
