September Roundup

September started out slowly so I had a chance to play around with different cookie designs, bake a birthday cake and enjoy the beginning of football season.  It was a nice end to summer.  Then fall rolled in and so did the requests.  Now, I normally try not to take on too much work, but it seems like everyone was having their party the last weekend of September and I decided to pull an all week bake session.  It had been so long since I had one that I was a bit nervous.  Luckily my old organization skills kicked in and I managed to get everything done on time and was really happy with the way it all turned out.  I hope you enjoy the pictures!

Here are some of my favorite cookie designs that I worked on during some downtime.

My husband’s birthday is in September so I made a cake that I spotted a while back on Pinterest.  I love the way it came out.  I used my favorite chocolate cake recipe and filled it with espresso flavored diplomat cream.  My 5 year old helped with the piggies.  My kids said that the three with their bottoms up were them and I was the one laying down and my husband was the one hanging on the side.  they had the biggest smiles on their faces when they saw it.

Ninja turtle cake pops!  I love the expressions.

Minion cupcakes.

I had a few themed party dessert orders.  I put the photos together to keep this post shorter.  These are great examples of how you can build an awesome custom dessert table on a budget with mini desserts.  A few of these clients were supplementing their tables with some homemade and store bought goodies as well.

Cal Baseball themed desserts for a graduation party.  We incorporated the Cal logo and the graduate’s baseball number into the treats.

A Hawaiian themed birthday party(top picture) and a meet and greet baby shower with the color scheme of teal, baby blue, purple and navy blue.  She wanted swirls and flowers. 

A windmills and pinwheels party for a 6 year old little boy.  We worked the windmills into the cupcake fondant toppers and put the pinwheels on the cake pops.  We also made a jumbo cupcake just for the birthday boy.

August Dessert Roundup

There were so many fun themes in August.  I also got to celebrate my birthday as well as many other wonderful celebrations with family and friends.  Here are a few of my favorites from this month.

Star wars cake pops and cupcakes.  I made these fondant toppers for all the cupcakes.  The characters were on top of our double chocolate cupcakes and the light sabers were on vanilla bean cupcakes.

Baseball was a popular theme for August.  Here is a cake pop basket I put together for a baseball themed family birthday party.  I love how it all looked together and everyone went crazy over them.

I had the great pleasure of taking part of a gender reveal party for a long time client.  The mom to be wanted to find out what the sex of the baby was at the party so the doctor called her brother to reveal the news to him.  Her brother sent me a text with “Its a girl!”.   The color scheme of the party was yellow and green so I made the inside of the cake pops pink and  also made some mini banana cupcakes(her favorite) with yellow frosting and green pearls for the party.  What a fun and special way to find out what your having while surrounded by family and friends.  I can’t wait for the baby shower!

I had a lot of fun with these character cake pops that I made for an engagement party.  I love it when couples find a way to incorporate themselves into their wedding celebrations.  After all, it is all about them.

Speaking of weddings, I somehow managed two weddings in August also.  One was a very last minute wedding that I set up a cake pop “cake” for.  I got the call just one week before the wedding because their cake pop person cancelled on them.  Yikes!  I told myself that I wasn’t going to do weddings this year, but I just had to help them out.  We met two days later for a quick tasting and finalizing of the details and this is what we came up with.  They held the wedding at a beautiful Mexican restaurant in Sunnyvale.  I wish them all the happiness in the world.

The second wedding was a last minute thing as well.  My sister was helping to plan a wedding on a budget for her assistant.  They were going with Costco cake and weren’t going to have any favors.  When I heard that I just had to step in.  I love her assistant.  She is an amazingly sweet lady and I couldn’t have her cutting into a Costco cake at the reception.  Since I was gifting the cake, I didn’t feel any pressure and was able to just bake.  I think it turned out beautiful.  It was my second time making sugar flowers so I went with simple ruffle flowers.  I also made these adorable wedding cake cookies as the favors for the guests.  It was a beautiful wedding that many people helped put together.  I definitely felt the love for this couple.

I hope you enjoy all the pictures!

Sporty Dessert Table

I had the pleasure of designing this dessert table for my nephew who was turning 6.  He loves all sports but mostly football so I wanted to integrate that into the table.  His favorite color is blue so I made that the main color and added green and brown as accent colors since they were going to be used in the other party decorations.  My sister did an amazing job with the food and décor of the party.  Since the party was for family, I decided to get creative with one of the cupcake flavors and add brownies.  Unfortunately I cannot offer this new flavor or the brownies for sale at this time(health department limitations), but I may add it next year.  Here are the pics.
