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!

One of Alexis’s coworkers asked for an XBOX 360 cake for her friends’ son and this is what transpired.

The buttercream frosting inside the cake was also XBOX green!

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:

Fishing Boat

Posted by If The Cake Fits at 4:55 PM 0 comments

This was a unique cake made for someone who has spent a lot of time on Fishing boats.  The cake was made using a bundt pan and the boat rested on the “dip” in the center. 

Alexis hand crafted the fishing boat while Carolyn made several crabs, fish and shells to accent the cake with.

Brown sugar was used to create a “sand” effect around the edge.

We learned the technique of Basketweaving in one of our classes.  It looks quite intricate but it was actually quite easy to do.

Both of us were pleased with our end results.
