Super cute Mario Brothers cupcake toppers.
The Smurf House. This was cute at home, then came the ride down the bumpiest road and when I got to my friend's home, this is what the cake looked like. The bottom looked like it was about to collapse and the balcony was falling over. She still loved it and so did everyone else despite the complications.lol
"I so love smurfs............the best bday cake I ever had!"
Gumpaste Leaves Wedding cake. All real cake with way too many gumpaste leaves dusted with lustre dust. I do really love the chocolate brown fondant. It's a nice change than all the white wedding cakes we always see.
" Thank You, it was a fairytale come true for me :) Your cake was gorgeous, just like I had imagined it!! And it tastes great!it was delicious! And so thick :)Thank you again Andrea, it was perfect!!"
A super quick cake I made for my aunt's sister. I wanted this cake to be fantastic, but family circumstances came first and I was left with hardly any time. I still owe Teresa a naked man! lol
"everyone loved the taste of the cake. Lots of compliments were made"
Twilight Cakes. Very fun and I used edible images for the first time. I was a bit intimidated by them, but they are very easy to apply and look amazing when there is much detail, such as faces to be put on the cake. I will be using these again!
"Hey Andrea,the girls absolutely loved their cakes...It was a total fiasco when it came time to cut the cakes,they didn't want Jacob and Edward cut up LOL..Finally had to cut the heads off Jacob and Edward for the girls to eat and we were able to cut the cakes LMAO..Thanks so much for 2 more awesome cakes"
Side view, because I love this cute little 2-tier!
Wedding cake gone Birthday cake!
"She loved it. Everyone thought that it was so pretty. Thank you so much for making it on such a busy weekend! "
More pension cheque cakes!
LMAO!! I really don't know what to say about this one. I just laugh every time I see it! lol
"The cake, everyone loved it and it looked and tasted so good. Thank you again!!!!!! "
These topsy turvies are so much fun! As well as Toopy and Binoo!! We couldn't find figurines anywhere, so I molded these. I find they turned out pretty well. My daughter sculpted the little Patchy Patch. I wasn't going to make him, but she insisted and I had to add it to the finished cake!
"We all loved it! It was a hit with the kids, thanks so much!!"
Fall weddings are so beautiful! I love this simple white cake with all the flowers. The colors just make the cake stand out!
It's A Boy! I utilized my Cricut and made some cupcake sticks.
Austin wanted a cake for his french class at school. I stayed up late making this one for him. He said everyone loved it!

August was another busy one....as usual! lol. We did some camping, swimming and had my big boy's 9th birthday. August is a sign that summer is coming to an end. Take advantage of all the nice weather, even if it's raining a bit, soon the snow will be flying :( I booked a few to many cakes this month, which took away a bit of my time and I will know for next year to book at least one full week off in August.
A simple Transformers BumbleBee Cake. The client put a BumbleBee car on the top later on. All buttercream at request of the client.
"The boys Birthday cake!!! Thanks Andrea it was so yummy!!"
I was VERY nervous with this cake!! I cannot even describe what was going through my mind in creating and delivering this one. It was a first, a BIG first. I had never done a topsy turvy cake nevermind a topsy turvy wedding cake! I think it turned out absolutely amazing. I love the color choice of the bride as well as having the black tier to offset the white. The entire cake was cake...no styrofoam. This baby was heavy. I had to deliver it to Edmonton, which is about 2 hours south of where I live, on a very hot, humid August day! With my luck, my truck's air conditioning crapped out and I had to run to my sister for help. She drove me and the cake safely there. It was a nerve racking trip for sure! Once there and all set up, I was filled with pride of my accomplishment. I had to share a few more pics!
Here's me and my baby boy!
I didn't know what to say when I got this order. It was a bit interesting! LMAO!
More boobs. These have become quite popular! This request included a zebra print bra. lol
Wizards of Waverly Place. I've never actually heard of the show, but the client brought forth a picture of a cake she wanted me to replicate. I changed the picture to the birthday girl. Not sure who to credit for this... it's a cute idea.
"Hey Andrea,Amy loved the cake..She was so happy when she saw it.Everyone commented on what an awesome cake it was and what a great job you did on it.Thanks so much again Andrea"
No this is not a butt! My husband told me it looked like a butt. It's an apron for a bridal shower. Those are boobs and straps hunny! lol
"Everything went so good:) The cake was amazing!! I got so many complients!! Even both my Grandmas approved:) Anyways, I can't thank you enough. The cake was a hit and we ate the whole thing!! "
"Hey Andrea, Just wanted to say thank you for my gorgeous shower cake. You did such a wonderful job! Thank you!!"
The guitar cake was HUGE!! I was worried I couldn't get it to look well because I have never worked on such a large scale one layer cake, but I think it turned out well.
A replica of a wedding cake designed by someone else... again not sure who to credit. The pleated swags turned out perfect!! I found a great totorial which helped me to create the flawless look of swagging. When I first saw swags on a cake I thought they were ugly, but they have definatley grown on me. They make a simple cake look very elegant and I can't wait to use them on another cake in the future!
My son, Austin's 9th birthday cake. He couldn't decide for weeks on end what kind of cake to have. I could imagine being a kid with a mom who makes all sorts of cakes, trying to figure out exactly what to have and what will be the coolest. He finally, the day before his birthday decided on this. He handed me the smallest little lego figurine and asked my to replicate it for his cake. I excitedly took on the challenge and added a few Lego blocks around to add color. The cake was such a hit. My nephew said he couldn't stop starring at the cake, it was just so cool! lol
My handsome 9 year old. So proud of his cake!
Sea turtle cake with matching cuppies for a 1st birthday.
Thanks for looking, I will try to get up September's cake soon!!
