Ladybug birthday cake and cookie favors

Very excited every time one of our customers returns for a new birthday surprise! I made a chocolate fudge cake with Oreo cream filling carved into a ladybug. The red and black fondant creates a vibrant display.

We also baked and decorated individually wrapped cookie favors to match the cake.
Delivered to a 3rd birthday party at The Little Gym in Livingston NJ.

Santa Hat Elmo with Birthday Gift Cake

What better for a two year old on his same day as Christmas birthday, than an Elmo bursting from a gift box wearing a Santa hat? Maybe if inside is perennial favorite chocolate fudge cake with Madagascar vanilla bean filling.

The white fondant gift box is tied with a green bow and decorated with Elmo's goldfish, crayons and musical notes.

For a Christmas Day party in Livingston NJ.

I was called on by a customer whose wife loves Gucci, and he wanted to surprise her for a birthday party in Atlantic City NJ. He chose a handbag design with red, black and white colors, and the fondant is embossed with the Gucci logo. Inside is a white vanilla cake with strawberry cream filling, carved into a Gucci handbag.

Suzuki GXR Bike Groom's Cake

This was a tough one, a motorbike cake modeled on the groom's Suzuki GXR. How do you make enough cake to fit inside a motorbike, and keep it standing? I never even rode on motorbike!

Simon started out by building a wooden frame, that would allow us to build up to the seat and leave it overhanging the rear wheel, as well as supporting the front end. Sorry, I was so busy I didn't take a picture of the frame, will have to stay a secret!

Inside is red velvet cake with cream cheese filling. Then we built up the cake with the engine block, fuel tank and seats. A black leather jacket with the groom's personalized 007 logo lays across the seat.

We delivered the cake to a wedding reception at Sterling Gardens in Matawan NJ.
