For the Love of Twilight...

We thought we'd throw in this cake we did for a friend who absolutely adores the Twilight saga.

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!

Deliciously Yours,

Keira's First Birthday

Another cake, another adventure...

My goddaugher, Keira, celebrated her first birthday last week and to celebrate the princess that she is, we of course made her her very own castle cake!

Prep work for the cake started with piping over 250 royal icing flowers! Thank god we did that ahead of time!

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...

Up next came some prep work on the turrets...colored sugar is the key to the pretty sparkly feel like you're back in third grade doing arts and crafts as you dip the cones in "sparkles"...

Keep in mind that while all this fantastic meticulous work is going on, there's a happy one year old constantly at your feet trying her hardest to steal your attention away from the silly cake prepartations...look at me, I'm ONE! hee hee

Finally some assembly begins and you can finally start to see the castle come to's the first look after I got all the pillars on before all the piping work began:
Apparently at this point I really fell into my groove becuase in about an hour we were nearing completion...

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!
