Easter Garden Cupcakes

Easter will soon be hopping upon us, so I have been thinking up what I want my cupcakes to look like on my Easter table.  Hmmm, sooooo I have come up with a garden trellis with little roses!  I made up some Royal Icing roses and decorated my cupcakes garden style.  I think all the pastel colors made it look so springy!

Decadent Yuletide Cakes

Yuletide logs or here in Québec, “Bûche de Noël” are an absolute tradition in my family.  I have made them every year now for quite some time.  I am most fond of the Vanilla cake with Mocha filling and a deep Chocolate frosting.  I think it’s really my favorite, especially if you like coffee.  I now bake a delicious Vanilla cake with a “Tutti-Frutti” filling (cherries and peaches, yummm!) with a Vanilla-Almond frosting and delectable White-Coconut Chocolate bark, oh my I can’t wait to eat it!!  

Village Sweets has our Specialty Yuletide Logs (Bûche de Noël) on our Menu for ordering in case anyone is interested…

Have your Skateboard & Eat it Too

Village Sweets worked on a special theme cake this week.  An all edible Skateboard for Gab. After figuring out the design, we were ready to create a cool looking skateboard complete with wheels and a ramp.  We added a checkerboard, flames and skull design to the top of the board. This skateboard was made of a Red Velvet cake with a Vanilla Butter-cream frosting covered in a cherry red fondant (Gab’s favorite color).  The ramp, also made with the red velvet cake and the wheels were fashioned out of Rice Krispie’s.  

Gab,  hope you enjoyed your cake and HaPpY BiRtHdAy!!

Sweet 16 Cake Artist Style

Just finished a cake for a girl’s Sweet 16 Birthday.  She is an artist, so a funky artsy style cake was the perfect theme.  Her favorite color is Pink, so beautiful colors of pink Fondant and frosting were used for the details of this luscious cake!  The perfect embellishments were gum paste paintbrushes, an easel (not all edible but kitchen grade), a paint board and a canvas with the birthday girl’s b-day announcement.  Thank you Micheal and HAPPY BIRTHDAY ANTONIA!!

Volkswagon Bus Cake Hippie Style

Even though this cake took quite some time to create, it was loads of fun making all the intricate edible details.  Red Velvet was the choice of cake flavor with and outside frosting of Vanilla Buttercream and an inside filling of Cream Cheese Frosting, then the cake was covered in the creamy white and blue colors of the Volkswagon bus in Fondant.  Cool colored flowers and of course a peace sign screams hippie style with a tye-dye surfboard atop the van…
