Unicorn Birthday Cake

Monday, July 16th, 2012

Character cakes are always a hit at a child’s birthday party. If you’re the parent of a little one then you already know this. This Unicorn Birthday Cake was inspired by Goldie, the pet unicorn from Goldilicious,  the follow-up to New York Times bestselling Pinkalicious and Purplicious picture books by award winning illustrator and author Victoria Kann. The books were inspired by Victoria’s real life daughters – two girls with vibrant imaginations who love cupcakes, dress up, playing princess, and all things pink.

The body of the unicorn was carved out of Vanilla Pound Cake and layered with Vanilla Buttercream. The head was modelled out of rice crispy treats and the hair and were piped with royal icing. The rest of the cake was draped with fondant and highlighted with pink pearl dust to give detail. Happy Birthday Sophie!

White and Silver Wedding Cake

Tuesday, July 5th, 2011


This Mini 3 Tier Wedding Cake travelled all the way to Ottawa for a winter wedding. It’s perfect for a smaller guest list while still maintaining that big wedding cake look. Each tier of this cake borrows from 3 separate cake designs. The different designs are tied together by the use of pearls accents on each tier, in the brooch and around the base of each tier. The entire cake is covered in off-white fondant with the accents ‘pearlized’ (dusted with pearl dust) and the bride’s silver wedding dress inspired the use of silver ribbon. The extra-large cake board and gathered fabric look of the fondant on the board creates more presence for this mini wedding cake.

The top tier of this cake features 3D sugar-flowers and leaves with vines piped on and accented with pearls. It was inspired by a cookie design that the couple found in a wedding cake magazine. On the top of this tier the initials of the bride and groom were piped on. The middle tier was done in a classic quilted pattern and the base tier was done in an equally classic Damask pattern.

Top Tier – 4 inch round Vanilla Raspberry Cake with Cointreau Buttercream

Middle Tier – 6 inch round Banana Chocolate Chip Cake with Light Chocolate Buttercream

Base Tier – 8 inch round Chocolate Cake with Semi-sweet Chocolate Buttercream and a middle layer of Snickers (chocolate bar) Chunks

This White and Silver Mini 3 Tier Wedding Cake provided 36-38 servings making it a great size for bridal showers and anniversaries as well.

For her outdoor summer wedding by the shores of Lake Ontario in Whitby, this bride wanted an elegant cake design with lots of ivory roses to match her wedding colours and flowers. This Ivory Rose Wedding Cake was covered with ivory fondant and had a quilted design on the top and bottom tiers. The design on the middle tier was piped with royal icing and painted with liquid pearl. The darker ivory piping on the base of the top and bottom tier and the row of roses on the middle tier were done in buttercream. Ivory sugar roses on top and our round silver cake stand completed the look.

Calla Lily Wedding Cake

Wednesday, June 29th, 2011

Fondant drapes are a beautiful, traditional design for wedding cakes that are made to look like folds and swags of fabric draped over or around the cake. For a modern touch, the white fondant drapes on this Calla Lily Wedding Cake were accented with clusters of dark purple sugar calla lilies. Sugar pearls on each tier finish the classic look.  The wedding reception was held at The Fairmont Royal York Hotel in downtown Toronto.
