Ivory & Pink Butterfly Wedding Cake

This weekend we created this 3 tier square cake for Kara. Her colors were ivory and pink. She wanted a pale ivory cake wrapped with soft pink ribbon adorned with silk butterflies. The butterflies were a personal touch since Kara loves tattoos, and all her tattoos are butterflies. For flavours, Kara chose chocolate and classic white tuxedo cake filled with rich chocolate truffle filling and iced in Italian Meringue Buttercream. Congratulations Kara!

Let's Take a Walk Down Memory Lane

Back in December, I received a phone call from a former groom whose wedding cake I did 2 years ago. He phoned me to say that he was planning a surprise birthday party for his wife and if I could create a cake for her. He said that they loved their wedding cake so much (the bride cried for joy when she saw it) and if I could recreate a smaller version for her birthday. Oh my, I was so touched, plus, I LOVE it when guys phone and order cakes for their sweeties. Happy Birthday Mandy!

This week was my son's 9th birthday. Unlike my daughter who has a passion for creative things and is always asking me to make really "fancy" cakes for her birthday, my son really doesn't care. Much to my horror, he likes to pick out the cakes from the grocery store and says "I like that cake, can I have it?" So, when I asked him this year what he wanted for his birthday cake he said he wanted a picture of the movie character "BLADE" with lots of blood on it. Hmmm, okay not really what I wanted to create, but that's what he asked for so that's what he got.

I am often asked to create wedding display cakes for the bridal and florist shops here in Fort St John. Tasha from The Copper Moon Flowers and Rental asked me to create a "springy" themed pink cake for her store display. So I quickly came up with this design of pink daisies cascading down.

The beginning of another season...

Well, another wedding season is open us, it officially began this weekend. Also, it was Mother's Day too. Here are just a few of the cakes we completed here at Just Like Gram's.

These adorable cupcakes were ordered all the way from Toronto. Darcey emailed me and wanted to do something special for his mom who lives here in Fort St. John, so he ordered some of our Gourmet Filled Cupcakes. Isn't that sweet? Flavours chosen were Icy Mint Blast and Autumn Twist.

This humorous moustache cake was requested by a client for her father-in-law's 65th birthday.

The wedding season started off this year with this simple 2 tier cake adorned with white and gold ribbon.
