Bees, bugs & baby shower

Long time no post. It’s been a particularly busy summer and fall for me and now I hope to get back to posting some pics of cakes I have been doing (the ones I have remembered to photograph anyway). Here is one I did for a baby shower waaaaay back in June. It was for a garden theme incorporating bees and ladybugs. This was the vision I had. I have tendency to default to rather cartoony cakes and I didn’t want to do that with this one. I liked the idea of pure gold bees and lots of different flowers. Enjoy=)

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away…

Star Wars wedding cake.

Well, some Star Wars, some flowers and a few polka dots and you got yourself a cake. This cake covered the grooms love of Star Wars (and Batman), the brides wish for something not-too-girlie and a mutual love of movies/photography. Throw in the wedding colours and what I ended up with was a cake dubbed, “Nerd-awesome” & “Nerdtastic”. High praise from the guests who love comic books and sci-fi.

Happy 60th Birthday, Mom

This here is a cake I put together for my mothers 60th birthday. It has pink roses, blue hydrangeas and white anemones. Wrapped in a periwinkle ribbon and sealed with sugar brooches to finish it off.

Fairytale Cake

This cake was for a fairytale themed party. So, I included some key characters Cinderella, Snow White, a dragon, a fairy godmother, the Gingerbread man and Little Red Riding Hood. The birthday girl requested the color lavender, so the cake color was born.

Backyardigans Robot Rampage Paint Splatter Cake

This cake had a very specific theme based on the party activities and the birthday boys favorite Backyardigans episode. I did my due diligence and watched said episode to get inspiration for the characters I was going to put on the cake. Super catchy songs involved;) The rest was, well, paint splatter. Enjoy=)

Professor Bug, mwah ha ha ha!!!

Man cakes can be difficult. No flowers. No pretty. No cutesy. No fuzzy wuzzy itty bitty wittle…*cough*. Anyway, what’s manlier than a zombie? Am I right, folks? Well, that is what the birthday man wanted, so this is what I dreamed up. It almost gave me nightmares.




A face only a mother could love. Zombie mother, that is;)




Today I am featuring some sugar cookies I recently made. It’s not all about cake all the time, I’m no one trick pony you see;) I was going for a wintery white on white and I do so love snowmen. The main guys were polar bears, but I didn’t get great pics of them, sad face. Well, it was 5:30 in the morning after all and I was a tad bleary eyed. Regardless, enjoy=)

It was requested of me to make a Tangled cake. Hmmmm…I thought to myself. I was a little wary of trying to recreate the main character herself, so I decided to make the tower and and surround it with the flowers that she had in her hair. As a finishing touch, I made the birthday girls name to look like Rapunzel’s hair.

Bill and Squeaks

I have a strange habit of naming (or renaming) things. I name fish I catch, fondant characters I make, random people I see and occasionally furniture. You get the picture. Anyway, I had an idea for a cake I wanted to make for my nieces second birthday that involved cute little rubber duckies. Her obliging mother let me do whatever I wanted and this is what resulted. After I created the duckies I decided they needed names. The large duck is Bill (get it?) and the little one is Squeaks=)

Lest we forget

I thought for today’s post I would put up a poppy. I made this flower that has become synonymous with Remembrance Day in honour of all who fought for freedom.

Thank You

The Passion Flower

Last year my mother-in-law was getting married, so of course I had to make the cake! (I do so love making cake!). She wanted flowers, but something that was unique and meaningfulĀ  to her. So she chose a passion flower. I did not know what this looked like. When I saw one the thought of attempting this in sugar was daunting to say the least, but I persevered. So, here is the result of my efforts….

Hello Blogosphere=)

Welcome to my blog. I am doing this as a way of displaying my interest in all things related to cake and, well sugar in general. I’ll start by adding a photo of a sugar cymbidium orchid I made.

Thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoy=)
