Mad Scientist Cake

Last year, this birthday boy got a Crocodile Cake.  This year it is a Mad Scientist theme.  I had some amazing graphics and color palette as inspiration for this cake.
I painted the mad scientist with edible ink onto a sugarpaste background.
And when they cut inside.... isn't that fun?!!

Sesame Street Sweet Table

A follow-up from last week's Sesame Street cake for my daughter.  We had a small get-together with our family with this snack and dessert table.
The desserts included a neopolitan birthday cake and strawberry vanilla cupcakes.  We have some family members that follow a paleo diet so I also had paleo chocolate chunk cookies, paleo chocolate avocado brownies and lots of fruits and veggies.
Happy 2nd Birthday to my sweet girl!
 Another photo of the fun Sesame Street ideas - thanks to Pinterest for all the ideas!

2nd Birthday Cake: Sesame Street Cake

I hope everyone is enjoying their summer.  Earlier this month, my daughter Sidney celebrated her 2nd birthday.  I knew for a long time that it would be a Sesame Street theme but she kept changing her favorite character every month.

For this design, I was able to incorporate all the characters. 

And here is the back of the cake.  I got the lettering idea from an Instagram Photo that SugarBaking posted.  She said the idea came from an Amy Atlas post of a Muppet Dessert Table.
Similar to Sidney's 1st birthday, I created a dessert table.  Here is a little sneak peak of some of the decorations. I will post all the photos of the sweet table next week.

Pink and Gold Wedding Cake

I had the pleasure of creating this wedding cake for one of my dearest friends and her wonderful husband.  She was very easy going and not picky about the design.  I was also her bridesmaid so she wanted me to do whatever was easiest.  She gave me a color palette of her flowers and said she liked square cake tiers.  
The wedding was at the lovely, Graydon Hall Manor in Toronto.  It was a perfect wedding weekend of events.  I loved how the handmade sugarpaste flowers and final design turned out.
As I said in my Instagram post, each petal was worth it!
