Today I'm honored to be sending off two awesome cakes to the Champions of Courage auction being held at the Children's Hands on Museum in Olympia, hosted by South Sound Parent to Parent.
If you are interested in attending this fun auction it is free for children 18 and under and adults are $12.
You can purchase tickets online at www.ssp2p.org/6.html
I love being able to donate my cakes to causes that focus on our youth.
Pokémon cake is vanilla bean with marshmallow buttercream, marshmallow fondant, gum paste. Everything was hand cut and sculpted, no molds used.
The Seahawks cake is chocolate cake with buttercream filling, marshmallow fondant, gum paste, modeling chocolate.
I was trying to get a third cake made with a Harry Potter theme but I ran out of time.
Wow it's been a great football season when it comes to Seahawks themed cakes for their fans. Even though I do not get much of a opportunity to sit down and watch the game it's exciting to hear everyone cheer on their team while the house is filled with the smells of messy snack foods, burgers and of course cake.
With everyone heading into the new year with a fresh perspective and goal oriented list on hand I am diving hands first into bowls of sweet gooey goodness as I make fresh buttercreams in various flavors and test on my family and friends new cake flavors.
I have some awesome ideas I would like to lay down on paper as well as cake but i'm trying to catch up on all the first of the year orders!
As the year comes winding down to an end I think of all the things I coulda, shoulda and woulda done..and I think the one that comes close to mind is spend more quality time with my family and friends. Is this a New Year's resolution? It just might very well be!
However as business gets busier and busier I have been trying to purchase new equipment to make my business more efficient...weather it is something small or something big I am hoping to be able to create better cakes for my customers.
May your Holiday be merry and bright..sending warm light to you and yours.
I try my best to get back to customers as soon as I can. I have been getting swamped with orders and requests for qoutes which require me to customize designs...which I love to do!
If you are needing a qoute and would like me to sketch you out a design for approval please send me all the detail information you can..photos, color swatches, etc. All those help getting me to get YOU the cake of your dreams!
..and that means outdoor parties and especially garden weddings!
The sun is shining and the sky is blue...flowers are in bloom and so is love... children want to be more outside to explore and soon to be brides are deciding how they want their decorations to hang for invited guests.
As all that sounds so lovely please keep in mind that though we love those long warm summer days and nights...cakes normally dont :(
I have yet to have any cake collapse from heat trouble but horror stories abound all over the cake world about melting frosting, crumbling cakes, bugs crawling onto icing and uneven ground for cake tables..resulting in a fallen over cake!
Always be prepaired for the worse on hot days with your cakes...it is best to have them in a covered spot with shade if you REALLY need them to be outside.
With that being said please take a moment to read my "Terms" page as I am not responsable for damage done to any cake due to outside conditions.
