Fun Week

I had such a fun week this week.  I did a cake that I think is my new favorite!  Even the little smash cake was so much fun to do.  The base cake is our white almond sour cream with chocolate ganache filling.  The ladybug cake is our white almond sour cream with strawberry filling.  Two of my favorite combinations!  Have a wonderful 1st birthday, Evey!

And Julia is turning 13, so her mom ordered cupcakes to bring to the event.  I matched the stand to the cupcakes.

And a baptism cake for Samuel....

My mom was down for a visit a few weeks ago.  We came over to visit the Westerville shop, as she hadn't seen it yet.  Here is the prettiest picture of my mom with her great-granddaughter, Emma!

Have a great week!!!

We're now on Facebook!

I finally, finally broke down and made a Facebook page for the business.  So please, check it out and click on "Like".  We're looking a little sad with only our 50 Likes!  :)!/pages/Brendas-Cakes/188659154490650

Lots of Cupcakes

We've been working on some new flavors, for when we eventually get the shop opened!  Let me know what you think!

First off, raspberry swirl cake with raspberry icing.

And Smores Cupcakes - we did this one with white cake with marshmallows and chunks of Hershey's chocolate baked into the batter.  Topped with marshmallow icing and graham cracker crumbs.  It was excellent, but I'm thinking we'll try a version with chocolate cake to compare.  We love taste testing!  :)

We also had an order for some wedding cupcakes.  Congratulations Amelia!!!

And of course, my favorite little cupcake got her newborn pictures back, so I have to throw a few of those in!  :)

Have a good one!!!!

Long time, no post!

I sincerely apologize for how behind I've gotten with updating the website and the blog!  This is a busy time of year with specialty cakes and wedding cakes, plus we're attempting to get the shop in Westerville opened by the end of October.  And of course, I have my beautiful new granddaughter, Emma, who requires lots of snuggle time with her grandma!  But I'll save my excuses and get onto the cakes!

This was a unique one for me.  Generally I make "cute" cakes, so to make something look more realistic and fierce was a challenge for me.  My wonderful daughter, Chelsey, helped alot with sculpting and painting various pieces on this one.  Everything on the entire cake is edible, including the dice and the figurine.

We also did an adorable "baby album" cake for this past weekend, with cupcakes to match.

And some Lego cupcakes....

We've also been doing some experimenting with new cupcake flavors for the shop, but I'll save those for another post!  And of course, I can't go without giving everyone an Emma update!  My adorable granddaughter is doing fantastic!  She's up to 6lbs, 9ozs, and we are so proud of our big girl!  She is SUCH a joy to have around!!!!!

Have a great week!!!!!
