The Soul Train

Apr 24th, 2012 by Gemma | Comments Off on The Soul Train

With a recipient moving to Georgia the theme of the party was of course “Leaving On A Midnight Train To Georgia” and what better cake fits that theme than the Soul Train. We started off with a quarter sheet amaretto cake (a relatively new flavour we’ve developed that seems to be gaining in popularity) filled […]

Keystone Light Beer Can

Apr 22nd, 2012 by Gemma | Comments Off on Keystone Light Beer Can

This cake stood at 13″ tall, that’s pretty hefty for it’s 8″ diameter even though it still wasn’t completely in proportion to perfectly match the 16oz can we were replicating. Any taller though and it would have been dying to teeter over during transportation. It was a little scary carrying this one about due to […]

No, the zombies aren’t here yet, but this brain is definitely the tastiest I’ve come across! It’s a butter cake with raspberry jam between the layers (perfect for that gory look). We covered the cake with a base layer of black fondant and then built up the brain design on top with coils of fondant. […]

Eat Or Eat Not, There Is No Try

Remember yesterday’s Wedding cake? This is the utterly awesome Groom’s cake that went with it. Red velvet with cream cheese icing he is what we’re calling a “character cake” mostly flat with some shape and relief built up, out of both cake and fondant.

We were asked to make a Guinness cake, in the shape of a wooden keg, it sounded like fun and let us try out new recipes to get it right! In the end we settled on the Nigella Lawson Guinness and chocolate cake, it was rich and flavourful, a definite winner! With the cream cheese […]

Moon Cake

Our good friends at the Austin Astronomical Society once more got their holiday party cake from us. It’s such a pleasure to get repeat customers like this, although it does mean we have to constantly strive to top last year’s cake! As before, they had a butter cake with our English buttercream, a nice simple […]

Spiders and Stripes

So, I know I’m about a week late in posting a Halloween cake, but lets just ignore that and carry on shall we? This cake was a personal one, I made it for our Halloween party which is always a good time to test out recipes on our guinea pigs *ahem* friends! I initially had […]

Firefly

Jul 18th, 2011 by Gemma | 2

Firefly has always been a favourite show of ours. Neither of us discovered it until it had sadly ended but it hooked us in and is a show we can happily re-watch (when we have that elusive thing known as free time). Apologies to anyone not familiar with the show Firefly, a lot of this […]

Peanut Butter Cup

Jun 6th, 2011 by Gemma | Comments Off on Peanut Butter Cup

We got a request for a peanut butter cup cake, it didn’t need to be huge, the shape and flavour were the important bits. We umm-ed and ahh-ed over trying to make a peanut butter flavoured cake but finally settled on a chocolate cake with a peanut butter flavoured icing. The cake had some mild […]
