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!

Book and ball were this sweet little girl’s first words and they (and the colours from the dress she wore to her party) were used as the inspiration for her 1st birthday cake. This banana nut chocolate chip cake filled with nutella buttercream was covered with a soft brown fondant accented with white and pink dots and circles. On top of the cake is a small fondant book with an edible image of the little girl and a verse written by her parents. Also on top is a large white chocolate “A” and three little pink basketballs and a number “1″. The cupcakes are topped with pink basketballs and tennis balls and pink initials. Flavours include chocolate cake with chocolate buttercream, lemon coconut cake with vanilla buttercream and red velvet cake with cream cheese frosting.

Sports Birthday Cake

Saturday, February 12th, 2011

To create a 60th Birthday Cake for the ultimate sports fan we drew inspiration from his two favourite sports; baseball and hockey, and covered the cake in fondant in his favourite colour; blue. Among the handmade edible toppers are baseballs, bats, helmets and a baseball glove, a hockey jersey, pucks and a hockey stick, and a trophy for the champ! We replicated the logos from a few of his favourite hockey teams; the Philadelphia Flyers, the Boston Bruins and the Montreal Canadiens, to create edible decals in sugar. The cake was wrapped with a baseball inspired ribbon. This carrot cake is particularly special with the addition of coconut, pineapple and pecans, which are the main ingredients in our hummingbird cake.
