This last cake was created for a very special person, my daughter Elizabeth. She celebrated her 6th birthday this weekend. She chose a picture of a cake she wanted from a cake magazine and I added a purple brooch, purple ribbon and flowers. I even topped the cake with a purple chocolate crown. The cake was tuxedo flavour with chocolate truffle filling, and Italian Meringue buttercream. Happy Birthday Missie!

This past week was full of cupcakes (200 and counting) with the usual wedding cake orders to boot. I was busy baking 240 chocolate and vanilla cupcakes topped with our newest frosting, Orange Cream Cheese. Yummy! This frosting has been so popular this year that over 1/3 of my brides have requested it as filling for their wedding cakes. Unfortunately, I didn't get a picture since the bride picked up all the cupcakes the day before her wedding.
To make it short and sweet, here are the recent round of wedding cakes:
A small and simple wedding cake for a bride getting married at home. Sweet and simple...Another Camoflauge wedding cake created at Just Like Gram's this summer. This was for a created for a couple from Tumbler Ridge, BC who enjoyed the outdoors, hunting and fishing and all that fun stuff! Congratulations, Stephanie and Roger!

Well, seeing how school is fast approaching. OMG, is it tomorrow already? I had thought I had better whip up some goodies for school lunches. So, I actually spent some of the day baking for my family. I made some oatmeal chocolate chip cookies and used up some bananas and made some banana bread.
What - NO CAKE? Yep, my family doesn't really like cake anymore. After trying out so many recipes on my family, they are sick of cake. So if I have to try something new, I usually wait until we have company over and I make a new cake flavour and then send the rest home with them.
So, there my guilt trip is over and I actually did some baking for "us". I got my daughter into helping me and she stirred, poured and mixed - my son though preferred to be taster, trying to steal cookie dough. We had a fun and relaxing afternoon.
Now, back to "baking for people". Hapy Labour Day!

With so few supplies in Fort St. John, I have to order most of my supplies from either Edmonton, Vancouver, Ontario and even sometimes overseas. I try not to order too much from the US since duties can be quite costly. Plus, you can find such a better selection in the big cities. So my vehicle was packed to top with cake boards, drums, colors, chocolate moulds, chocolates, a new turntable, a few new cake pans, plus a trip to Costco to stock up on baking supplies. My most treasured purchase was 3 silver plated scroll work cake stands. I have been wanting some for so long, but couldn't find any locally. I did the happy dance when I saw them and had to buy them on the spot.
Now, not only did I buy cake supplies, but I also did the usual spring shopping for my family, like shorts, t shirts, sandals and stuff. I even managed to snag myself some cool new jeans, capris, a brand new purse and some really cool new Cake books.
So now my cupboards (and closets) are bulging and ready for the upcoming wedding season!

We had lots of visitors who stopped by and visited our booth. Around 15,000 people attended the fair that weekend. I made over 1100 cupcakes for sampling and over 75% of them were gone by the end of the weekend. It was also neat to meet so many vendors from the community and also those who attended from Alberta and to do some networking. I even got the chance to do some Father's Day shopping. Sorry, can't say, since my hubby likes to "surf" and do some sneaking.
I want to say THANK YOU to all those who came by and visited our booth and had a chance to have a cupcake. I really enjoyed meeting and talking with you and I look forward to working with you in the future.

I was approached by one of my regular clients, Diane who asked me to design her son's birthday cake. He loved bowling and requested an orange creamsicle flavored cake. Little did Diane know, but I was also asked to design her birthday cake at the same time by a close friend. Diane loves to shop at IKEA (who doesn't???), so I came up with an IKEA shopping bag cake for her. Happy Birthday Diane!!!
