Frozen Cupcakes

These Frozen cupcakes are perfect for a cold day in Toronto.  I used edible markers and food coloring to freehand draw the characters onto the fondant disc. 
The cupcakes were chocolate sour cream with vanilla bean buttercream and strawberry buttercream

CrossFit Cake

A cake for the CrossFitter, Powerlifter or weightlifter in your life.  I loved making this cake as it crosses over with my other career as a Personal Trainer.  I have to admit, last year I did focus a lot more on training and nutrition for clients.  This year, I do plan to do the same - but I do love this cake thing so you'll definitely see more creations from me.
I hope you had a great start to 2015 and I wish you all the best!

Fun Corporate Cakes and Cookies

Now here's a fun fun fun corporate cake order for the holiday.  I had so much fun with this one!  My client's corporate gifts were based off of one of her products, toenail fungus ointment.  She had a lot of fun delivering these cakes - which really were delicious!
How about these fondant-covered cookies?  Her clients loved it.   During one of her deliveries, she ended up with a flat tire.  A nice gentlemen helped her out and she thanked him with a package of cookies.  A good laugh for everyone :-)

The Shoebox Project

Christmas spirit is about giving and sharing.  It is always wonderful when there are organizations that make it easy for us to share or lend a helping hand. I was happy to participate in The Shoebox Project where a friend organized donations and a party to assemble shoeboxes.  These shoeboxes are filled with useful gifts and treats with a $50 value then donated to a local Women's shelter.

This is such an amazing project.  Last year, this group my friend organized had donated 75 boxes and this year was an amazing 178 boxes.  My daughter and I will definitely participate every year!  Here are some of the local shelters that we were able to contribute to: Robertson House, Nazareth House, The Open Door and St. Vincent de Paul - Elisa House.
The shoebox drive is currently over, but save your goodies and look out for things throughout the year that you can donate in a shoebox!

Where the Wild Things Are Party

Last week, I posted a cake based off of the book Where the Wild Things are.  I'm so excited to share with you the party that my client threw.  Just to be clear, I didn't put this party together - these details were all put together by my client.  I was so amazed by her details and she let me share her photos.
 She purchased some of the items from Etsy.  Now look how cute that birthday boy is!
 Those straws say "I'll drink you up" and I love the "Wild Eats"

Where the Wild Things Are Cake

Having a 3 year old, I thought I knew most of the kids books around.  Somehow, I had missed this lovely illustrated book, Where the Wild Things Are.  The characters are just so amazing so I had lots of fun creating the design of this cake.
 My client even surprised me and bought the book for my daughter to enjoy - how sweet is that! The cake was alternating layers of strawberry vanilla and vanilla bean cake with strawberry buttercream.
