Reptile Birthday Cake

I had less than a week to make a reptile-themed cake for a 6-year-old girl.  Yes, that's right, a GIRL!  I took the order because it was for someone I know plus I thought it was doable (it was finished 12 hours before the deadline... I am a hopeless procrastinator).

The party was being held at a reptile zoo (boy, was it busy for a Sunday!) and I delivered it using the worse roads ever, but the cake arrived intact.

The top tier was vanilla cake and bottom tier was chocolate cake, both filled with vanilla Swiss meringue buttercream.  All the decorations were fondant.  I thought it would be cute to have 6 things to represent her age, since she was going to have a number 6 for her candle.  My favourite item was the lizard dusted with gold.

Apparently, the cake was devoured and not even one reptile was left.  That's when you know you have satisfied everyone's belly. :)

Happy 6th Birthday, Victoria!

Summer is Over!

August has come and gone... September is upon us (Happy Labour Day!).  Back to school... but first, here are few orders created during the past week:

Three Little Pigs Birthday Cake

Little Joaquin turned 3, and the theme was The Three Little Pigs (obviously, lol!).  The fondant pigs were swimming atop of a chocolate ganache "mud" bucket cake.  The chocolate cakes were covered in chocolate fondant "wooden planks" and green fondant.  The filling was chocolate Swiss meringue buttercream (the family loves chocolate).  The evil wolf was made of fondant, with the wanted-poster invite as inspiration.  Little Joaquin savoured biting into the wolf, lol!

Happy 3rd Birthday, Joaquin!

60th Birthday Cookies

Our friend's in-laws were both turning 60 later this year.  They decided to throw them a surprise party, MONTHS before their actual birthday, lol.  So, I made these teal/white/disco dusted sugar cookies for their favours.

Happy 60th Birthday!

Sports Birthday Cake

My colleague ordered this cake for Japhet, who turned 13 this year.  He plays football and soccer, so the theme was sports-related.  One layer was chocolate, the other was vanilla, and the filling was chocolate ganache.
Happy 13th Birthday, Japhet!
