Under the sea cakes!

 Under the sea we off the hook
          We got no troubles
           Life is the bubbles
               Under the sea

Ok so some of you I'm sure know where those lyrics are from...While these cupcakes are Under the sea themed, they are NOT mermaid BUUUUUUT I love that song..and its rather fitting!! :)
They're so colourful and fun!! They were a HUGE hit at work today :)!

                                                     Under the sea!!!! Under the sea!
                                                               Darling it's better
                                                           Down where it's wetter
                                                             Take it from me ! :)

It's already been a year of blogging!!

 A whole year has passed since my first blog!! + 2 days...hehe and I thought maybe I'd share with you, (even though you've been with me the entire way) how things have changed in these 367 days of sugary fun :)

 My first pops were so very messy and frustrating! Now pops are a breeze, and they take a lot less time. I've started experimenting with different designs on pops and am so excited with the outcome!! There will be plenty more to come :)

The year has been full of cupcakes. Some good, some bad...some melty ahah

While there has only been a small number of cakes I am most proud of how my cakes have developed!! I look so forward to cakes to come and cakes that are already in the planning stages!!

Thank you everyone for joining me on this journey :) It's so much fun and so rewarding! I really look forward to working with my best friend on cakes and cake design in future projects!! And I look forward to the challenges to come in the next year. :)

Happy birthday flowers

 Usually when  people ask for baked goods, they give me full creative reign. This time the lady who asked for these knew exactly what she wanted, and I must say, I really really like her colour choice for these ones :) They turned out beautifully <3

Party Time! 19+

Tree Top Trekking!

 I had NEVER heard of tree top trekking. Then one day a friend of mine took her boyfriend out to climb around for his birthday and she told me all about it. It sounds SO cool! Other than that I had never heard anyone talk about it! And after a few weeks I was asked if I could make a cake with tree top trekking as a theme.... OK!

I was SO SO excited to tackle this project. I did as I always do and searched around the good old internet for some reference ideas of what others have done...nothing! So I researched tree top trekking further..and the wheels started turning! Trees, zip lines, ropes, swings! There is just so much that can be done with this!

I got to work assembling trees and wires...but..I missed a important step...structural reinforcement!! I should have taken photos of the disaster that was this cake at 4am! Sadly because I didn't reinforce my trees they all began to fall into one another. And I tried, and  tired, and tried to keep them up right. The more I tried the worse it seemed to look. So after a meltdown...I went to bed a sad lady, and started fresh a few hours later. This time...with reinforcements!! :) And I am pleased to say that everything turned out wonderfully!!

It was a double birthday for an adventurous father/son duo! And I am told they LOVED their custom tree top trekking cake!!! :)
