Week Ending 15 November 2009

Remember when I said 2 weeks ago that I wanted to take a weekend off to recharge and reconnect with my husband? Hmm, well, it didn't wuite turn out.

Oskar had to be Christened, and his parents became engaged, all in the one party. These are what we created to help the celebrations along:

The engagment cake is a 6" square, tiffany blue fondant cake with chocolate brown ribbon accents and some ivory butterflies.

The christening cupcakes were in two sizes, mini and full size. The minis had a buttercream swirl in tiffany blue with white non-pareils, and the full size had white fondant over buttercream with tiffany blue piping accents.

The comes this week's orders - my busiest weekend yet of this years pre-Christmas wedding season.

First up is a two tier pink and ivory confection.

The base tier is an 8" square, ivory fondant cake with quilting detail and pink cachou highlights. The top tier is a 6" round cristal pink with ivory satin ribbon and ivory sugarpaste plaque, with the bride and grooms first initials highlighted with pink lustre.

Next up is a stunning art deco cake and cupcakes, designed to mimic the couple's invitation. This wedding was held at the stunning Arthur's Seat Hotel Grand Ballroom (pictures below)... the view from the main windows over Westernport Bay is rather spectacular, to say the least.

The cake was baked by the groom's father, and is a traditional fruit cake. The cupcakes were all in black cases, with white fondant and royal icing piping in 3 designs with colour block accents.

Remember all those butterflies I told you about making? Well, here they are:

This cake is a three tier, 4 layer cake of blush pink fondant with chocolate brown ribbon accents. The entire cake was then wrapped in a kaleidoscope of butterflies, and topped with a pair of ivory sugarpaste butterflies highlighted with ivory lustre.

Christmas Gingerbread are here!

This is the first release of our Christmas 2009 gingerbread cookie range. Reindeer in two designs, with royal icing, sugarpaste and crystal sugar accents.

Well, that's this week wrapped up!
Next week, we have a 1st birthday for the gorgeous Sarah-Jane, whose Christening we did earlier this year... this party will be a doozy; there's a cake, and cupcakes, and cookies galore too... and yet another wedding with more butterflies!
See you next week, have a good one!
