Now, we've been tweeting like crazy about quiche which I'm sure have got all of you wondering. Before the night ended at the last event we catered for these guys, we wanted to make sure we had a moment to chat with Jackson to thank him for the incredible opportunity and also ensure that he had eaten some cupcakes or atleast taken a take out box full of them to enjoy later that night. To our surprise, he told us he doesn't even have a sweet tooth! We were absolutely shocked because of course as a cake business, you totally want to impress your potential clients and hear feedback about your work and his kind act just reaffirmed that there are some truly genuine people out there that believe in your work and want you to succeed.
It was my daughter Emma's 3rd birthday this October so for her preschool, we made mini chocolate cupcakes with pink icing and sprinkles and a milk chocolate "E" for Emma!
For her actual birthday party, since she's totally obsessed with Thomas the Train, it was only fitting that we make something Thomas related for her. She, of course, wanted a cake of every train that exists within the Island of Sodor, but knowing that our guest list wasn't too big, we decided on mini cupcakes of a couple of different characters and a small cake to blow out!
The cake and cupcakes were red velvet flavor with cream cheese icing. The train faces were made out of fondant dyed a light grey with white fondant circles for the eyes and I hand painted the faces onto them. (Thomas, Percy and James) Needless to say, they were an absolute hit with her and her party guests. Always fun to do themed cakes!
Next, we were lucky to make up a Tiffany & Co. themed birthday cake for a friend of ours. The cake was chocolate flavored with our ever popular hazelnut filling. We even used a Tiffany bag I had to ensure our blue was color correct! This one was definitely fun to make!
Finally, we made a wedding cake for two lovely people who had a really great idea. The cake flavor was vanilla with raspberry buttercream as the filling. We used green color to dye the fondant that was meant to be the color of mini green mums, then cut out flower designs and painted the indented part black as their wedding theme was green and black, an excellent idea, definitely a challenge but in the end lots of fun! The couple also requested that we put their initials on the back of the cake, so we freehanded an "old english" style script of their names!

Now I'm sure everyone's wondering, did Robert Pattinson get to enjoy your cupcakes, did you get to meet him? The answer to that one is a definite yes! Sara and I mustered up the courage to talk to him and I even brought a hamburger cupcake for him to sample and he enjoyed it very much! We had a nice chat with him along with Kellan Lutz, who made it very clear to us that he had taken a business card and wished we were international so he could get mini cupcakes from us in LA!

We replicated the "meadow" scene and changed the face of "Bella" to look somewhat more like our friend. Our Edward was a dazzling masterpiece complete with streaked hair and a 6 pack..
...and yes he did sparkle!

After the first experience making a castle cake, I was prepared for a long night, so I got started right away preping the layers of cake to be decorated. We decided with lots of small kids at the party, that we better go with a classic flavor, so I tried out a new white cake recipe, which turned out to be a big hit. Can't go wrong with the classics...
The next day was the birthday barbeque where the finalized masterpiece was revealed...and ta dah! A cake fit for a queen...or at least a one year old princess!

Then for the cupcakes, I thought I'd do yellow icing with black sprinkles..for that real bumble bee feel...
Oh and the cake was chocolate and the filling for both the cupcakes and cake was a chocolatey-hazelnut filling..yum!
We couldn't just leave the cupcakes without a special touch..so we melted down some yellow vanilla flavored candy disks into the shape of an autobot logo...
(ignore my flower patterned place mat hehe!) And the finished product looked like this:
It's always fun to put your twist on a themed birthday cake. Ethan's mom was super happy with the end result (she pretty much left it up to us!)..we've been doing Ethan's cake for the past couple years (our website shows the Spiderman cake and cupcakes from last year's birthday) and we look forward to many more themed birthdays!

Sara thankfully found some lavender pearl dusting powder so I brushed all 150 sugar flowers with it..what a lifesaver!
The ceremony and reception was held at the Olympic View Golf Club in Victoria, BC and boy did they ever luck out with the weather! Thanks to trusty dollar store bins, the cupcakes and cake made it all the way from Vancouver with no mishaps! The staff at the golf club were excellent and very accomodating for the 12 stacked bins I kept in their beer cooler, if I had one complaint, it was that the fondant on the cake itself got a little sweaty due to being in too cold of an area, but otherwise it worked out really well!
There were more cupcakes than there was room on the cupcake tier, so the fabulous head chef at the golf club found me a big glass serving platter that I used to place the other cupcakes onto. Perfecto!
A very fitting cake topper was placed on the cake, as the groom is a big golf buff!
