Beatles Birthday Cake!

Once again, my dad's Birthday rolled around but this time, I knew exactly what I wanted to do for his special cake!

I've already made motorcycle, barbecue and magic themed creations for his Birthdays and Father's Day. This time, I would tackle another one of my dad's interests - The Beatles!

Here was his Yellow Submarine Birthday cake!

He absolutely loved his Beatles cake! Not to mention it was cookies'n'cream cake with cookies'n'cream frosting! YUM!

I'm slowly running out of ideas now that I've made 4 special (cup)cake designs! It's a good thing Birthdays only come once a year! :P

Engagement Sugar Cookies!

I can't even tell you how long I've been waiting for the opportunity to branch out into sugar cookies!!

When my mom's friend's niece got engaged (hard to follow, I know!), she wanted to send something sweet to the newly engaged couple to help celebrate such a special occasion! She wasn't sure what exactly she wanted to send, so that's when I seized the opportunity and suggested sugar cookies! Once she gave me the green light, I went crazy with ideas!

Here's the final product!

I had SO much fun putting these adorable cookies together, especially all of the little details (the best part!)!

My mom's friend absolutely loved them when she saw them, and I'm sure the happy couple did too!

Finally, a time for sugar cookies!! :)

Pretty, Pretty Cuppies!

I was asked to make some cupcakes in honour of TWO 50th Birthdays - a husband and a wife!

Such a special occasion calls for equally special cupcakes!

Here they are!

These batch of beauties became an instant fave of mine! Classy and understated - perfect for any special celebration!

Hello Kitty Cupcakes!

When I was asked to make Hello Kitty cupcakes for a little girl's 5th Birthday, I was both excited and nervous! I can't tell you how long I've been waiting for a Hello Kitty order to come along, but at the same time, her little precious face is so simple, yet so easy to mess up! If her features aren't just right, she will NOT be Hello Kitty anymore!!

Here's my rendition of HK in cupcake form!

Silver lined cupcakes topped with light pink frosting, sprinkled with bright pink sugar and topped with Hello Kitty faces made the perfect sweet treat for a little girls' big day!

I was so happy that the faces turned out well and I was even happier with how adorable these cupcakes looked once they were all put together!

Another cake success! :)

Scrabble Cake and Boxers Cake!

When a Scrabble fanatic sells boxers for a living, THESE are the cakes he receives in honour of his Birthday!

Both cakes were a blast to make, although you can imagine how time consuming the Scrabble cake was!

All in all, there's no better (or funnier!) way to celebrate a boxer-selling-Scrabble-addict's birthday!!
