I'm BACK!!!!

Yes... after several months of MIA, I am back again. No, I did not stop making cakes, just stop blogging. Been SUPER, INSANELY BUSY since March and finding time to write in a BLOG seemed just ONE MORE THING to do. Right?  Pretty sad excuse, huh??? Well, lately I have been thinking that I HAVE TO MAKE TIME to blog again. Another reason, is that to me my life seems pretty boring and redundant. Really, all I do is make cakes, look after my kids and hubby's business and take care of an acreage. Week AFTER week AFTER week AFTER week.. you get the picture. So here we go again. I am hoping to BLOG at least 1-2x a week.

This has to be ON RECORD one of the MOST BUSIEST'S years on record for me. The demand for cupcakes have taken off and I seem to do more of them than cakes. Unfortunately, with increased business I have had to turn down sooo many orders.  THERE IS ONLY ONE OF ME!!! Can't do everything, right?  The month of July was no exception.. Here are just a "few" of the cakes and cupcakes we did this month.

We created this square cake and cupcakes with dark purple blossoms for a wedding in Rolla, just outside Dawson Creek.  

This 3 tier all white cake was adorned with artificial flowers provided by the bride. The wedding day was EXTREMELY hot, with even hotter temperatures inside the wedding tent. I was very worried that it would melt after setting it up, however, I later received an email from the bride saying the cake had survived and she loved how it turned out.  The bride wrote,

``I just wanted to say that the cake was absolutely, amazingly couldn't ask for a more delicious gorgeous cake. Job well done you are truly an artist :) thank you so much very appreciated.``

Created this 4 tier all white wedding cake wrapped in black ribbon topped with a sugarpaste hot pink bow and draping ribbon. The bride provided a bling brooch to decorate the bow. We received these comments:
The bride wrote me: "Thank you, it looked beautiful and was delicious :)" . One of the guests even commented, "Yes this cake was incredible!!!!! Beautiful and tasted great!!"

This was the biggest cupcake wedding I have created yet. We created  300 cupcakes and a small round wedding cake. Each cupcake was decorated with a small sugarpaste plaque featuring the bride and groom's initials. I was a bit worried I wouldn't have enough room for all the cupcakes. As you can see, the cupcakes covered every inch of the table.

Every year for the past 5 years I have been making birthday cakes and cupcakes for a regular client. He calls every year and orders treats for his girlfriend. This year I created these birthday cupcakes with Dark Purple Sugarpaste Blossoms and Miniature Daisies.
