Shhh! Want to know a secret about party cakes??? March 27, 2009

I LOVE to do children’s birthday cakes!  I have so much fun imagining how excited the child will be when they see their special birthday cake.  I love the bright colors and fun designs that are incorporated into children’s cakes.   I am always honored to be asked to participate in a couples’ wedding, but childrens’ birthdays hold a special place in my heart!


A couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure of making a cake for Ellie who turned 3.  Ellie was having a pizza party and wanted a pink cake.  Her mom asked if I could make anything out of that…Sure! I said.  Here is what I came up with for little Ellie…a Pretty in Pink Pizza Party.


The cake is a delicious dark chocolate cake covered in ruffled buttercream and a fondant tablecloth.  Each of the little plates and pieces of pizza were handmade by yours truly.  The mozzarella pieces were individually cut and applied with tweezers just so. 





The birthday cake was dusted with a shimmery pink edible color and painted with a edible gold.  Everything you see on this cake is edible, although the pieces may get a little hard during the drying process.  If you choose not to eat the molded pieces you can keep them for a very long time….









I also made a cute soccer cake for McKenzie….the soccer ball on top is covered with marshmallow fondant and the grass is buttercream.  This soccer ball can be made into an complete 3D soccer ball that would serve aproximately 10 children.  Inside McKenzie asked for a moist butter cake, our most popular flavor. 









An afternoon baby shower was the perfect scene for this stacked box cake.   The cake is our moist butter cake and they are filled with freshly made seedless raspberry buttercream.  The cakes are covered with buttercream and topped with fondant lids and bow.  The baby booties are made from gumpaste.
