2nd Birthday Cake: Hello Kitty Cake

I love when I have the freedom to design cakes.  I have many regular clients that I work with year after year and they will give me a theme and trust my design style.  A few years back, it started with this baby shower cake and then Lola's 1st birthday cake.

This year, the birthday girl turned 2 and wanted Hello Kitty!  I wanted to experiment with some edible ink painting and I loved it!

70th Birthday: Luggage Cake

Many years back, I made a fun Safari-themed retirement cake and this time around, the couple celebrated their 70th birthdays.  They have pretty much traveled everywhere,  so a luggage cake was definitely appropriate.

Blue Whale Cake

One of the first cakes that I posted on my blog was a big blue whale so I had a lot of fun creating another one this past weekend.  This cake was many many layers of blueberry swirl cake (made by the client) with lemon zest swiss meringue buttercream.

Frozen Cupcakes

These Frozen cupcakes are perfect for a cold day in Toronto.  I used edible markers and food coloring to freehand draw the characters onto the fondant disc. 
The cupcakes were chocolate sour cream with vanilla bean buttercream and strawberry buttercream

CrossFit Cake

A cake for the CrossFitter, Powerlifter or weightlifter in your life.  I loved making this cake as it crosses over with my other career as a Personal Trainer.  I have to admit, last year I did focus a lot more on training and nutrition for clients.  This year, I do plan to do the same - but I do love this cake thing so you'll definitely see more creations from me.
I hope you had a great start to 2015 and I wish you all the best!

Fun Corporate Cakes and Cookies

Now here's a fun fun fun corporate cake order for the holiday.  I had so much fun with this one!  My client's corporate gifts were based off of one of her products, toenail fungus ointment.  She had a lot of fun delivering these cakes - which really were delicious!
How about these fondant-covered cookies?  Her clients loved it.   During one of her deliveries, she ended up with a flat tire.  A nice gentlemen helped her out and she thanked him with a package of cookies.  A good laugh for everyone :-)

The Shoebox Project

Christmas spirit is about giving and sharing.  It is always wonderful when there are organizations that make it easy for us to share or lend a helping hand. I was happy to participate in The Shoebox Project where a friend organized donations and a party to assemble shoeboxes.  These shoeboxes are filled with useful gifts and treats with a $50 value then donated to a local Women's shelter.
This is such an amazing project.  Last year, this group my friend organized had donated 75 boxes and this year was an amazing 178 boxes.  My daughter and I will definitely participate every year!  Here are some of the local shelters that we were able to contribute to: Robertson House, Nazareth House, The Open Door and St. Vincent de Paul - Elisa House.
The shoebox drive is currently over, but save your goodies and look out for things throughout the year that you can donate in a shoebox!
