4-tier Pink and Cream Baby Shower Cake

Another baby shower shower cake based on a little wagon design.  The theme of this baby shower cake was "little angel" and the colors were pale pink and cream.   2 of the tiers were Chocolate Sour Cream cake and 2 of the tiers were Strawberry Vanilla cake.
I love how the little sugarpaste angel turned out.
Here is a few from above the 4-tier cake.

1st Birthday Cake

This is definitely one of my favourite cakes of 2011 so far.  The elevated tier is one of the most popular cake inquiries that I received. 

Here is the first version I posted,  the next one with a cute giraffe on top, a Baby Einstein version,  with animals and ladybugs and also inspired this cake for Gail Vaz Oxlade of the TV show Til Debt Do Us Part.   I have also made them with Sesame Street chracters and BabyTV Peek-a-boo characters - I will be sure to post!
I love how this cake turned out and so happy with the lion cake topper.  The top tier was chocolate sour cream cake and bottom tier was vanilla butter cake.

New Years Eve Sweet Table

2010 was a wonderful, fun and successful year at SweetThings.  So many celebration cakes, fabulous clients, challenging cake designs, wonderful people I have met over Twitter and the blog world...  I am so thankful.

My last cake for 2010 was this New Years Eve Sweet Table.  The photos are a little fuzzy, but there was a flashing disco ball in the room and I have no idea how to shoot that type of photo.  :-)
The Dessert Table included rice krispie squares dipped in milk chocolate, cranberry white chocolate biscotti, mini strawberry vanilla cupcakes, triple chocolate brownies with swiss meringue buttercream, chocolate cream cheese sandwiches and a small candy station of treats.
The disco ball and its stand was vanilla butter cake with vanilla swiss meringue buttercream.  I was inspired by the disco ball cake made by Baker's Cakes in NC - I loved her idea to color each little fondant square and add each one to the ball.  A very realistic look, worth the effort!

Blundstone Boot Cake

Happy New Year everyone!  As we give "the boot to 2010" and welcome 2011, I thought this cake would be appropriate...

These two vanilla butter cakes were for a birthday for a gentleman who loves all his different pairs of Blundstone boots.  We all know someone or have these boots ourselves... they seem to last forever!
