Comments Anyone?

I love receiving comments on my work: both constructive and flattering. Who doesn't? However, my BLOG has been under attack by those who seem to want to write comments that contain info that I can't even comprehend to understand. Basically, the content is largely filth in my opinion. SO, I have had to change the way comments are received. If you want to leave a comment, then you must FOLLOW my BLOG.

Black Wedding Cake

I love it when the occasional bride walks through my door requesting a design that is "outside-the-box". When I met with Amanda last year, she presented me a picture of a wedding cake she liked but wanted me to use her colors: black, red and white. Her wedding dress even had black accents. So we opted for an all-black cake with white fondant stems and leaves accented with deep red roses. She chose carrot and red velvet cake for her flavours filled with white chocolate cream cheese. I absolutely loved how the cake turned out and is so far one of my favorites. Congratulations Amanda!

Wedding Cake Season is in Full Swing

Well, it's that time of year again and wedding cake season is upon us in full swing. Can't you tell from the recent lack of post's lately? Sorry!!! Anyway, here is a quick run down of some of the few we have done recently here at Just Like Gram's.

3 Tier vanilla cake filled with raspberry buttercream and covered in fondant. We added sage green ribbon and artificial calla lilies and grass. Simple, yet beautiful.

This 4 tier wedding cake was delivered to a wedding in Tumbler Ridge last weekend. Cake was covered in pale ivory fondant wrapped in brown ribbon and filled with fresh pink roses.
Cupcakes are still in demand these days as an alternative to wedding cake. The bride chose vanilla and chocolate cupcakes iced in traditional buttercream and raspberry buttercream and then each one was topped with a fuchsia gumpaste flower. The top cake was iced in ivory fondant with a simple monogram topped with fresh flowers.

It's time to step out into the BIG world now!

This week was filled with creating graduation cakes. Here are just a few of them. First one was created for a client's nephew who was into sports. He loved baseball, fishing and his favorite hockey team was the Calgary Flames. He was also the lucky recipient of a wining a full scholarship for post-secondary education. Congradulations!

Here is another cake I created for a client's daughter. She played volleyball.

We created this 4 tier square wedding cake this weekend. Bride's colors were dark blue and deep pink. Since she was having gerber daisies on top of her cake, we created gumpaste daisies to adorn the ribbon.
