We delivered this mermaid cake to Warren NJ for a baby shower. The lower tier is a vanilla cake with orange chocolate buttercream filling. The second tier is a red velvet cake with cream cheese filling. Sugar paste decorations include fishes, coral, starfish, seaweed and not forgetting a treasure chest. Our pretty mermaid is happily pregnant!

Roses and Pearls Birthday Cake

This 40th birthday cake was delivered to Montclair NJ. It is a square 3-tier design with lavender colored fondant topped with white roses and a string of sugar pearls, our customer's favorite piece of jewelry. The top tier was lemon coconut cake with lemon curd. The lower tiers had alternating chocolate and vanilla layers with amaretto moccha buttercream.

My Little Cupcake

Who dosn't love a cupcake? We made a giant cupcake with red velvet cake and cream cheese filling for the adults. For the kids we made a choice of vanilla or almond chocolate cupcakes, all covered with a swirl of vanilla buttercream and fondant flower decorations to match the big one!

Busy with cake tastings

We have been getting lots of inquiries in June for Summer parties and Fall Weddings. I think that one of the most enjoyable parts of my work is meeting the customers and sitting down together to create a new cake design. I especially love to introduce new flavors and fillings and see how people react to these. It's certainly busy and we do our best to fit in cake tasting during the weekends or evenings in between our decorating schedule.
