stenciling 101

this week, we tried our luck at our first stencil cake for a damask-themed cake for Sarah and Mike's wedding

we're always happy to expand our repertoire and do something we've never tried before, so we were thrilled when Sarah approached us with the concept for her cake

the challenge with a stencil is that you pretty much only get one shot to get it right each time you do it, so you can imagine that there very first try (especially using black icing) was a bit of a nerve wracking experience

that said, here was the result of try number one:

not too shabby, eh? so with renewed confidence, we proceeded with the other layers...

...and ended up with this final product, which we loved!

Congratulations to Sarah and Mike on their big day and thanks for giving us the opportunity to do something new and fun!

Deliciously yours,

Jzabela and Sara

Fit for a Princess - or Two!

We received a request to create some cookies and cupcakes for twin girls turning 5 this weekend -twin princesses to be exact! All of the cupcakes were made a french vanilla flavor with purple and pink vanilla buttercream and the cookies were a delightful sugar cookie with royal icing and sprinkles.

Something special needed to be made for each of the birthday girls so we made them their own mini cakes complete with a birthday greeting wand!

Finally, some wand shaped cookies as parting gifts for the lovely guests! Tags were made by these girls' mum so we bagged up the cookies and attached the cutely phrased tag to each cookie.

Happy Birthday, Olivia & Savannah!

Deliciously Yours,

Jzabela & Sara
