Fire Station and Engine Birthday Cake

It was quite cool delivering this cake to the Princeton Junction Fire Company, a really exciting location for a small boy's birthday party. The perfectly clean building houses a dozen gleaming fire trucks and support vehicles.

We made a white vanilla cake with dulce de leche cream filling, the bottom tier decorated as a fire house, the second tier in traditional dalmation spots and with a fire engine on top! Complete with fire hyrants and fire hose.

Minnie Mouse Car Birthday Cake

The hardest thing with sculpting figurines is getting the right expression, especially with such well known characters as Disney ones! Minnie Mouse has a particular look, with her eyes close together just set above her nose. But I noticed that the nose is not round, it's oval and protrudes! Took me a few attempts to get it right!

Now inside the pink fondant exterior, carved into the shape of a special car is lemon coconut cake with dulce de leche cream filling. The Minnie Mouse figurine sits smiling at all the kids! Delivered to a first birthday party in North Arlington NJ.

Scrabble Board Groom's Cake

A bride came to me wanting to surprise her husband to be with Groom's Cake in the form of a Scrabble Board, his favorite game. An interesting touch, inside half is almond pound cake with amaretto moccha filling and the other half is apple cake with praline buttercream. I especially liked how the bride selected a series of words to reflect his interests. Served at a wedding rehearsal dinner in Woodbridge NJ.

Hello Kitty and Bows Bridal Shower Cake

Just made this three tier cake for a bridal shower. It was so hard deciding on a flavor that our customer picked a medley of red velvet cake, chocolate sponge with yellow cake and chocolate fudge cake with a selection of cream cheese filling, dulce de leche cream filling and dark chocolate cream.

The white and multi-colored fondant cake is decorated with sugar flowers and butterflies, as well as a cute touch, forks and spoons around the base of each tier. Hello Kitty sits a top the cake with a pink fondant bow to match the others.

Honda CR-Z Specialty Car Cake

I am so pleased when our customers come back to us again to celebrate a special family occasion. Simon and I were asked to carve a Honda CR-Z specialty car cake for a birthday party in Wayne NJ.

I think we captured the dimensions and key features pretty well, right down to the Honda logo. A pretty car!

Under the white and black fondant exterior is lemon coconut cake with passion fruit cream filling.
