Carnival Cake

I created this cute carnival cake for a little boy's first birthday this weekend. I had a lot of fun creating the clown from sugarpaste.

Fort St John Trade Show

Last weekend I attended Fort St John's CKNL Trade show. It is the largest trade show in the Peace area with approximately 12,000 people attending. I had a wonderful time, even though my feet were getting pretty sore from standing by the third day. We handed out over 1200 cake samples. Our booth was so busy that we ran out of cake samples hours before the show closed for the day. I just want to say a BIG "Thank you" to all those who came by and visited our booth. I really enjoyed meeting you and look forward to working with you in the future.

Here are a couple of display cakes we took to the trade show.

Baby shower cake complete with butterflies and flowers.

My favorite - Red Dragon Wedding Cake.

A Rocketship cake - perfect for a boy who is into rocketships and outer space.

What little girl would love to have a fairy castle for her birthday!

Lastly, a Hard Hat cake with custom corporate logo ideal for promoting your business.

Feast or Famine?

One thing about the cake business is either it's really quiet and you go for a week or so having few orders and you wonder "HUH, What's going on?" and then all of a sudden, "WHAM!" you get hit with customers ordering cakes all at once and wanting them all on the SAME day. That's just the way it is! This week at Just Like Gram's we had one of those crazy weeks. We completed 2 wedding cakes, a whimsical tilted cake and a last minute "work farewell" cake. Enjoy!

"Alice in Wonderland" theme bridal shower cake done in colors of black, red and white. Cake was decorated with sugarpaste playing cards and clock.

We received only 48 hours notice for this last minute small wedding cake. Cake was adorned with gumpaste butterflies and gumpaste purple blossoms.

Another small wedding cake created for this weekend. Simple and elegant with the dark navy blue bow and gumpaste flowers.

Another last minute cake order. We completed this cake in 48 hours too. Cake was created for a work farewell party. Springtime yellow with gumpaste butterflies and blossoms.
