Minions and Hockey

Created a Despicable Me Minion cake for a Minion & hockey lover, a Montreal Habs hockey lover at that!  At least she has good taste lol!  First time making a minion, hopefully won’t be the last.  They are so adorable, I just wanted to hug him, but I guess that would not be such a good idea, so I guess you could say I just wanted to EAT him!

60TH Anniversary

A special 60th Anniversary cake last weekend.  A White tiered cake with a Lemon Cream Filling and frosted entirely with a Swiss Butter-cream all in pretty roses large and small.  Glistening Gumpaste Snowflakes because they were married so close to Christmas… My mother’s father dropped their wedding cake (Oooops!), so I thought I would make them a special one for their 60th.

Love doing Theme Cakes !!

Village Sweets created their first “Make-Up” cake…  woohoooo!  First the cake, a vanilla cake with a Dulce de Leche filling plus a whipped cream filling and I frosted the cake with a smooth Vanilla Butter Cream frosting and topped it all off with a Pretty Pink Fondant covering.  A quilted look with silver Dragées just made it gorgeous, some gum paste make up accessories and voilà this cake was ready to get eaten!

Girly Girl Baptism Cake

It’s been a while since my last post.  Village Sweets created a Baptism Cake for a cutie pie “Lily-Rose”.  I made some Royal Icing Roses and painted them a soft iridescent Pink, roses to go with her name…  Gumpaste Bow and a Gumpaste Baby, I even added a cute ruffled diaper.  I draped a rosary across the cake as well.  Vanilla Cake and a Swiss Buttercream Icing, covered in an off-white Fondant.  

(This cake idea was from  Sophie Lacourciere, via Pinterest).
