Cake Fiction Has Moved to a New Location in Long Valley NJ

Hello Cake Fiction blog fans, last year was so busy that we dropped the blog altogether, even while we turned out bigger and better designs every week! We also gave our website a total makeover! So in the end I am transferring all new posts to the relaunched website, click here to read the new blog.

On top of all that, we moved house and have restored a historic barn where we built a commercial kitchen to accommodate Cake Fiction. The barn has high ceilings with all the beams exposed, a mezzanine for consultations and large doors that open out to the garden letting in light and making it a delightful place to work and invite customers for tastings.

In the new blog I will modify the focus from just showcasing cakes, and will try and write some more extensive features on cake trends and also life in our fabulous new country setting Long Valley NJ.

Long Valley, Chester, Califon and the surrounding villages are a paradise year round. Walks in the State Parks, cycling on the Columbia Trail, petting animals and picking apples or other fruits at the local farms. We are 100 yeards from the heart of the village, where we have four restaurants to choose from.

Please come and visit us!

Stargazer Lily Wedding Cake with lace ribbon and sugar butterflies

It's wedding season, and sorry to say I don't have enough time to post all the cakes we've been doing, although I try to put some of them up on Facebook when I get a chance!

This four tier white wedding cake has fondant lace ribbons around each tier and piped swiss dots. Light yellow sugar hydrangeas form small bouquets with the Stargazer lilies. The bride also requested yellow/orange sugar butterflies to finish off the decoration.

Inside is white cake with dulce de leche cream filling.

We delivered the cake to Bambu Lounge in Elizabeth NJ.

Hello blog friends!

We've been incredibly busy over past two months moving house, so little time for blogging and social media, but always present at the cakery turning out surprises for our customers.

Here's one of my favorites from the last few weeks, an M&M birthday cake with real candy scattered around.

Yes I did have to eat far too many!!

Romeo y Julieta Cigar Box Retirement Cake

There's something special about cigars, the fact that they are all lovingly hand made, like specialty cake!

We were asked to create a cigar box for a retirement party, based on a box of Romeo y Julieta.

We carefully rolled our cigars from chocolate fondant. The cake was yellow vanilla with Callebaut Belgian chocolate cream filling.

I just love Jimmy Choo shoes! I created a silver high heel shoe with edible rhinestones to sit on top of a two tier ivory fondant cake. The white vanilla cake tiers have dulce de leche cream filling.

Castle Book and Flak Vest Grooms Cake

Castle is one of my favorite TV series, so I got really tied up in this Grooms cake! I carved a book with the cover of a Richard Castle novel (yes they actually published books now based on the series!) as well as a flak vest for our intrepid writer become sleuth.

The Groom was excited to arrive for his rehearsal dinner at Lorenzos Restaurant in Woodland Park NJ and find this cake waiting for him.
