Challenge Week

Let me begin with how thankful I am for this dear friend, W.P. He has been the most supportive of me and my cake adventure. I am thankful and grateful for his supports and his encouragement.
He challenged me by asking me of making a cake for his friend, who likes to play piano. W told me that he'd like to include a few of her favorite things in the cake: her daily starbucks coffee, her love for Louis Vuitton bags, and her favorite flowers, daffodils. At first, I was just about to settle for an upright piano, since in construction, I know that it should be easier than a grand piano. But of course, W requested for a black grand piano. I was flipping through all of my sources, trying to figure out how am I going to make this grand piano. Then I stumbled into this lady who did this UNBELIEVABLY AMAZING CAKE (I'll post later all about her).
To make the piano, I have to cut several gumpaste pieces for the base, the cover, the keys, and the feet. Then you have to wait for all the gumpaste dry out. At the end, the piano was too heavy to be just supported by three piano feet. I opted for a support in the middle as I didn't want it to collapse. Bonnae did an AMAZING job with the piano keys. She plays the piano, so making those keys came quite easily for her, though it was not easy as she had to painstakingly score each and every key, making sure they are even as believable as a real piano.
At the end we're happy with the piano, I think it looks quite amazing. I am proud of that cake. Thanks W., for giving us a chance and challenge us in making this cake and being a part of the celebration.

After many "how about this" and "how about that"...we are proud to debut our BRAND NEW LOGO!!!!

It is everything that we wanted. Soft, playful, CUTE, and appeals to all ages. This logo will be the new face of our company and hopefully you'll see it a lot more!

I am sure you guys have all seen the newest cake: bubble bath bear! This was not our own design but definitely good to challenge ourselves in new techniques - which as you know are endless!
What we are working on right now:
* New cupcake designs well-priced at $3 - $5 each that are great for any occasion!
* Mother's Day designs!

Brand Names Galore!

GUCCI...! Calvin Klein...! Giorgio Armani....! Prada....! Burberry...!

These brand names came to mind when we have our 'cake challenge' this week. We have to create a cake that would show how fond this brother is of the brand name fashion.
Bonnae and I brain-stormed and we came out with this concept for the cake: a bear wearing brand name t-shirt, in this case, Giorgio Armani, wear a trendy Prada sunglasses. Then we put some shopping bags. For the longest time, we can't come up with Calvin Klein, until my husband showed up with his CK tshirt!
Then we stacked some more tshirts for this trendy bear.
We kept the design fairly simply to showcase the fashionable bear.

Aunt Jo and Baby Thea!

Ivone and I created a cake to celebrate my sister (Jo) and niece's birthday. We had to come up with a scene that captured a special moment for an aunt and a niece. We thought it would be so sweet if we had Jo reading to Thea on a couch. The couch and the automan was to resemble the same one in Thea's home. It was our very first time making a couch and it's amazing what the anticipation of making edible furniture can do to two cake lovers! We were giddy for days just thinking about it!

As you can see, we pulled it off! We gave Thea a pigtail with a pink bow because her mommy always gives her the craziest hair! We had a purple throw draped over the chocolate automan in case the bears need to get cozy. Jo has always loved reading so we added more books around their "living room."

So much fun making this cake. I think it probably took Ivone and I about 5+ hours to make this cake. That's only decorating...baking time not included. It really is a labor of love. But so worth it!

The Dogs Did It....

We are so fortunate to know this wonderful young lady, C.T., in our company. She is brilliant and absolutely beautiful inside and outside. She was the first person to place an order as we start our venture. She encourages us and we value her input toward the business.
She just celebrated a birthday and her husband wanted to get a cake for her birthday party. The husband wanted to have their beloved dogs, Murray and Nugget to be on the cake.
It was not easy to design a cake with dogs on it and making sure that it's CT's birthday, and not the two doggies. For the longest time, I can't get my head on the designs of how the cake should look like. One of the afternoon, it just hit me... I can blame it on the dogs!
So, I came up with the design of a very lovely, pretty cake, with ribbons and flowers, then I'll put some paw prints and some 'dirts' all over the cake, as of they were stepping all over the cake! Brilliant!

Here's the picture of the 'boys' on the cake. The boys are made from gumpaste and the dirt are from the cocoa petal dusts. As for the details, I put dirty tennis ball and a dog bowl, filled with dog biscuits, also made of gumpaste.
