Shirt & Tie Cake!

What do you get when you mix a custom cake with a co-worker who a) ALWAYS wears a tie, b) loves the Habs and c) is leaving for a new job?


No farewell is complete without a yummy cake and this thoughtful and specially designed cake was the perfect send-off!

Christmas in June Cake!

At the end of every school year, my friend's mom and her co-workers have a themed luncheon. Last year was the picnic theme! This year's theme? Christmas in June!

We have a summery blue sky and grass, a santa sun, palm tree with Christmas lights, and of course presents!

That's what EVERY Christmas should look like! :P

Rose Cake!

Family birthday's are always extra special to me! I love being able to give the gift of cake to help celebrate!

With our cousin's birthday coming up, it was the perfect occasion to get creative and have some cake fun!

I had so much fun making the flowers! And the best part of all is that the Birthday girl (and all of the party guests too!) absolutely LOVED the cake!

Another success! :)

Baptism Cake & Cupcakes!

For this baptism, I was able to recreate the adorable decorations I made a while back for a 5th Birthday celebration! This time I made the fun cupcakes AND a matching cake!

When I first made these cupcakes a while ago, I didn't think it was possible to love them more! But paired with this adorable matching cake, the whole set is just too cute for words!

The perfect sweet treat to help celebrate a special day! :)

Graduation Cake!

A high school graduation is a big deal! And what better way to celebrate this milestone occasion than with a cake specially made by me??

Here's a graduation cake I made featuring the graduate's high school logo!

Upward and onward!

Fashion Cake Take 2!

When I was asked to recreate the same cake I made last spring, I couldn't wait to get started! I just love that design! Between the painting and the big beautiful flower, it's such a blast to make!

Here it is, new and improved!

Another instant classic!

Reading Cake!

When I was asked to make a cake for a reading enthusiast, I was so excited about the idea! A mini pair of glasses that matched the Birthday girl's actual glasses and an open book, what could be cuter?!

I even matched the bookmark to the actual bookmark that would be given to the Birthday girl as her gift!

A perfect ending to a special day! :)

Zebra Cake!

If I haven't already said it a million times, I'll say it again: I LOOOOOVE the zebra print cake! It's fun, girly, whimsical and stylish!

Here it is in all it's glory for an 18th Birthday bash!

It might be an old favourite, but it's always a crowd pleaser! :)

Skiing Cake!

When I was asked to make a skiing cake, I was so excited (and a little nervous!) because it was something I had never done before! New cake designs are always filled with mixed emotions; I'm always excited to try something different, but I never know how it'll turn out until the end!

This cake was no different! Filled with ups and downs, it was definitely not a smooth run! But the end result was better than I imagined!

I was given a picture of the skier in all their winter gear so what you see on the cake is what the birthday boy looks like when he's hitting the slopes! A sprinkling of icing sugar for more of a snowy feel and voila! A skiing cake! :)

Birthday Cupcakes!

This next week is going to be a CRAZY one for me! With 8 cakes to make I'm already feeling super swamped! Even though I've got a lot on my plate right now, I knew I still wanted to do something special for my friend Amanda's 26th Birthday!

On top of these delish little cupcakes, we have a book being written, a film reel and a movie clapper! These represent Amanda's creative side! Not only did she study film, but she is also a very talented writer! On the other cupcakes we have every girl's favourite things: a shoe, purse, lipstick, flower and of course, some martinis!

Not only did Amanda loooove her Birthday cupcakes, but we all had an awesome time celebrating her special day!!

Happy early Birthday Spags! <3

50th Anniversary Cake & Celebration Cupcakes!

What do you get when you mix a Golden anniversary with 2 Birthdays?

Answer: A lot of cake!

The tulip cake returns AGAIN to help celebrate a 50th anniversary!

Only this time, the tulips are white with gold highlights to emphasize the Golden anniversary!

And what woman wouldn't LOVE cupcakes like this to help celebrate her Birthday??

Shoes, purses and lipstick...What else does one need??

And for a Hockey lover...

With so much to celebrate it's no wonder there's so much cake!

(Go Canucks!!) :D

25th Anniversary Cake!

Anniversaries are always a special occasion to celebrate, but when you get to the Silver anniversary, no celebration is complete without an equally special cake!

Here is a Silver anniversary cake!

This light blue cake was topped off with darker blue roses and green leaves, while a silver "25" is front and centre to emphasize that milestone anniversary!

Here's to love! <3
