Remember the Baby Shower Cake with the Cradle????

A while back I was asked to create this baby shower cake for a friend of my husband's. Well, I received a sweet thank you note from proud MOM and DAD.

"Thank you so much for the wonderful cake you made for Danie. It was very kind of you, alot of work must have gone into it. It looked beautiful and tasted so good!"

It's Half Over... Just a Little Bit Longer

Yup, wedding season is only half over and I still have August, September and October to go. Yes, I have wedding cakes even in October. Then a month to breathe and get ready for the Christmas rush.

RIGHT now, I am going to focus on this week, and then I'm outta here for a week off in Edmonton. When I say a "week off", it's just a week off from cak'n, but I'm going there to do my usual big FALL shopping trip and stock up on cake supplies, school stuff and do some early Christmas shopping.

Anyway, here are some of the recent cakes we have done here at JLG's.

I created this cake based on a design by a popular cake designer brought to me by the bride. Sorry, I don't know who it was. The bride opted for a 3 tier, instead of the original 4 tier design and we changed it to match her colors. My camera wasn't working properly, so Christina was kind enough to send me a picture of her wedding cake. Congratulations Christina and Tyrell!
She also sent me this lovely note:
Hi Tara! just wanted to say a huge thank you for doing such a great job on our cake! it looked amazing and everyone thought it was one of the best wedding cakes they'd ever seen.
and just so you know...all of it got eaten! I've never in my life seen a wedding cake get completely devoured. it was great!

This 3 tier square wedding cake was created this weekend. I loved the color combination of delphinuim blue and silver on this cake. The bride chose lfor her flavours: lemon cake filled with lemon curd and spice cake filled with white chocolate cream cheese.

This cake was created for a couple who were married abroad. They had a small reception when they got home and ordered this cute cake. The bride collects Mr and Mrs Potato Head stuff and asked if I could create a topper for her cake. Isn't that cute?

Lastly, we completed a cute baby shower cake for a baby girl. The client requested a "baby in a peapod" theme with polka dots. Butterflies were added as an extra touch.
