My customer sent me a pic of a cake to replicate. It was a two tier cake and the pic was a low resolution and it blurred when I zoomed in to see the details on the bunting flags. So I googled to find a larger image of the cake and I discovered that the originator of this cake was someone from Chef Duff's staff at Charm City Cakes! The cake was originally designed based on a party invitation for a little girl's birthday. Her cake and party was featured on the Hostess With The Mostess blog. You can see it here.
This cake that I made was for a baby shower welcoming a little boy. =)
This cake was made to match the baby shower invitation. The cake was really cute in person, but for some reason, it didn't photograph well at all. So the "best" pic that I have of it is this less than desirable iPhone pic. The recipients were thrilled with it so that's all that matters! =)
I made this cake a couple of months ago and I just realized that I never posted it on here! I don't know how I missed it! Anyway, the request was for a cake similar to a Valentine's Day cake that I made for my family a couple of years ago but to change the colors and make it look like a baby shower cake. So this is what I came up with! You can see the cake that she wanted me to use for inspiration here. The Valentine's cake was the first open lid gift box cake that I had made and it had waaaaaay too much "tissue paper" on it! So I toned it way down for this cake and I liked it much better. =)
These cakes are both 3"-4". I call them my "super minis" since I have two other cake sizes that I call minis as well. They were made as a surprise for my mom's best friend's daughter and grandson for their birthdays. Here is a size comparison picture so you can see how small they are.
My teeny tiny little ducky...
And her is the handsome Mr. Chance with his cake...=)
So...I usually don't like when I have to make people figures out of fondant because I never like the way they turn out. This is the first time that I've made one that I loved! I made her tutu out of tulle and it was so teeny tiny! Hopefully my next people figures will turn out cute too. =)
This cake was made for an adorable little girl named Tiffany. We delivered the cake an hour away and I got to use my Cake Safe for the first time. I LOVE my Cake Safe! It made my delivery stress free! =) This is my mom and I about to load the cake into the car...
I made these fun little cakes for my mom, her best friend and 2 of my sisters for Valentine's Day. They were so tiny and I loved decorating them so much! I picked a color scheme and wanted them to look like they were sort of a "set" of cakes that you would buy together! Haha
Here is a picture that shows just how small the cakes were...
I put them next to a 26 oz can of salt for comparison. If you were to take away the topper and the cake base, they would be the same height as the salt can. =)
All 4 cakes are white chocolate macadamia nut cake with white chocolate buttercream filling. I chose that flavor because last year for our summer vacation, I made white chocolate macadamia nut cupcakes with the white chocolate frosting and they were a big hit with my family. =)
