Children's Book Cake

The Very Hungry Caterpillar Cake. "On Monday, he ate through one apple. On Tuesday, he ate through one pear. . ." One of my favorite children's books! So cute, so simple, so hungry! Here's a huge version of that book that we created for a special first birthday. We handpainted the caterpillar and fruit to give it the same look as the book. Inside was moist red velvet cake with cream cheese frosting.

Travel Suitcase Cake

We created this special cake for our client Vicki's Aunt Margaret's 70th birthday. Margaret is an avid traveler and a very special aunt to Vicki: she moved in with Vicki and helped take care of Vicki's children while she was on bedrest for several months during her last pregnancy! Now, I'm sure Margaret was in dire need of a vacation after that!

Topsy Turvy Butterfly Themed Cake

After a lazy summer, we are back to posting on our blog. (Don't get me wrong, we were busy making cakes, just lazy about posting them!) Every cake is so unique and really takes on the personality of the event. This one is colorful, fanciful and glittery. The perfect cake for the stylish little girl turning one. Serves 40.
