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!
