May 25th, 2015 by Gemma | Comments Off on Alice In Wonderland Baby Shower

There’s nothing more fun than being our own clients! We usually use it as an excuse to test out new recipes and go a little overboard. Our baby shower cake was no exception. We had an Alice in Wonderland theme so finally decided on the Caterpillar atop his mushroom asking “whooo are youuu?” as the […]

Being vendors at HOPE Farmers Market we were thrilled when asked to make their 4th birthday cake. We decided to use Mon as the inspiration.
