Carolyn was honoured when her brother and his fiance asked her to make their wedding cake. This cake is carrot cake with cream cheese frosting on the top and bottom layers and marble cake with buttercream frosting in the middle. The bride's mother made the beautiful beaded strands for the decoration around each layer and fresh flowers were added to finish this cake off. It was enjoyed by all!

Lex was asked to make a cake in the shape of a BlackBerry for someone at work who was celebrating 4 years with the company.  This is a comparison shot to the real deal.

Diva Mode!

Posted by If The Cake Fits at 7:32 PM 0 comments

We were asked to make a “girly” themed birthday cake with a handbag & shoes.  These cakes are always so much fun because we get to tap into our “diva” mode!

This was a 2 tiered marble cake, accented with lipstick, nailpolish, a black handbag & gumpaste shoes.

Rock Climbing!

Posted by If The Cake Fits at 2:33 PM 0 comments

Alexis was asked to make a large cupcake-cake for a special little girls’ 7th birthday.  The party was held at a local indoor rock climbing facility called Ground Zero so of course the theme of the cake had to match!

The cake was a marble fudge cake with buttercream frosting.

Baby Shower

Carolyn was asked to make a cake for a baby shower for one of her friends.  The baby has already arrived so the message on the cake was one to welcome him to the world.

It was a white cake frosted with real buttercream (so delicious!!).

P-p-p-poker cake

Posted by If The Cake Fits at 6:16 PM 0 comments

Poker is a favorite past time of our brother in law so we decided to make a poker cake for his 19th birthday.

He had no idea that we were doing a custom cake for him.  In fact, he just wanted “a cake with chocolate chips.”  We couldn’t just leave it at that of course, so we definitely whipped something more fun together.  He was so surprised and the words, “that is a sexy cake,” may have been said.

Homemade ice cream cake!!

Posted by If The Cake Fits at 6:10 PM 0 comments

For Carolyn’s husband’s birthday party she decided to go a new route and made a homemade ice cream cake!  So many people thought it was a Dairy Queen cake – it was that similar!

Instead of the Oreo base, she used a brownie topped with Skor bar.

This was definitely a hit and sure to be a repeat at many birthdays to come!

There’s an app for that…

Posted by If The Cake Fits at 6:06 PM 0 comments

At one of the latest birthdays a few of the boys had the age old debate:  BlackBerry vs iPhone.  Carolyn’s brother has an iPhone and loves it so it was the inspiration for his birthday cake.

The cake was frosted with black buttercream and the apps were made out of gumpaste.

Tinkerbell

Posted by If The Cake Fits at 12:48 PM 0 comments

Alexis was very excited when one of her friends asked her to make a Tinkerbell cake for his daughter who was turning 7.  (Finally – a “girly” cake hehe! – and who DOESN’T love Tinkerbell!??)

This was a two tiered Marble cake with chocolate frosting. 

The Tinkerbell topper wasn’t hand made – it was a candle purchased from Michaels

Alexis says:  “It was a lot of fun making this cake.  I didn’t get to see the birthday girl’s reaction when she saw it but I hope she loved it!!”

Rubiks Cube Birthday!

Posted by If The Cake Fits at 4:21 PM 0 comments

Alexis’s boyfriend is an avid Rubiks cuber so when Carolyn & Alexis were planning his birthday cake they knew it had to be a Rubik’s Cube!

Her boyfriend was especially happy to see that the “cake is even solvable” (meaning the tiles were strategically placed and the cake could be solved like a regular cube).

It was a hit!

XBOX 360

The big 3-0

Posted by If The Cake Fits at 4:15 PM 0 comments

Here are a couple of cakes the girls did for each of their friends’ 30th birthday.

The first cake was for Carolyn’s friend who loves anything girly!  We made sure to use funky colors and topped the cake with a shoe and a clutch.  When Carolyn delivered the cake, the birthday girl was ecstatic about it.  That kind of reaction is why we love making these cakes!

30birthday

The next cake was for Alexis’s friends’ 30th birthday.  Her husband loved the Mickey Mouse cake we did for their son so he asked Alexis to do his wife’s 30th birthday cake.  She knew Alexis would be making it but had no idea what it would be and was pleasantly surprised with the theme since the birthday girl is very much a Sex in the City fan!

The cake topper was a Strawberry Champagne Jello shot in a martini glass.  :)

Cupcakes!

Posted by If The Cake Fits at 3:54 PM 0 comments

Who doesn’t love cupcakes?   Cupcakes are what started the cake decorating trend for Alexis who had been decorating them before Carolyn had asked to do the cake decorating course.

Alexis figured the course could only help with the cupcake decorating and from there the rest was history!

These Christmas cupcakes are what started it all for Alexis:
