3tiers - Modern Cake Design » Cakes

I L-O-V-E…

…Valentine’s Day.  A time for telling those we care for how much they mean to us, sharing extra hugs, kisses and a little Red Velvet cake.

valentines-blog

With a little help from my ’special someone’, we made red velvet cupcakes with buttercream icing.  R’s special friend Caitlin came over and they enjoyed a little snack together!  A few crumbs, red tongues and red-stained lips later they both had their sugar fix!

 

Happy Valentine’s Day Everyone!


Three Times The Fun!

Three Girls Turning Three, One Word = Triplets!

TripletsEach girl had a ‘favourite’. A favourite Winnie, a favourite Ladybug, a favourite Panda. Each ‘favourite’ came true with this forest of creatures. I wanted to keep all the cakes similar in design to avoid any sibling rivalry.

Flavours:

  • 5″ round marble cake with purple vanilla buttercream icing

Elmo Loves You!

My son turned *2* this year and has a l-o-v-e of all things Elmo.

roston-2nd-final
What a better sweet treat to share with his friends than personal Elmo cupcakes! I think they liked them, well at least the icing.  It was the first thing to get licked off! A boy after my own heart.


Pink Princess

Every little girl wants to be a Princess….

princess-1-final1princess-2-final1
This little darling is no exception!  I did get a special message from her Mom, “Make sure she knows I like pink AND purple!” Request fulfilled.  Especially with the pink buttercream filling and purple sparkly tiara! How fun! Now, let’s hope she finds her ‘Prince’ one day!


The Talia Cake

A modern couple, a modern cake.

talia-opt2When given creative license on the design of a cake, it is a Designer’s dream.  These friends of ours are a super modern, creative pair.  I based the design of their cake on one of my favourite textile designers, Amy Butler’s, ‘Midwest Modern’ pattern called ‘Martini’.  I thought the colours would also compliment their purple colour scheme.

The reception was held at a swanky venue overlooking the Rideau Canal, the night and the Bride and Groom were so beautiful.  And the cake fit right in!


The Tesia Cake

A tailored and classic Black and White wedding, what could be more beautiful?

tesia-final

Well, the Bride of course!  She is a lovely friend, whose friendship dates back to Elementary School.  She married the love of her life and requested a white cake with black detailing for the event, which was held at an Ottawa heritage establishment.

Handmade, edible black anemone sugar flowers adorned the top tier and gave this beauty its finishing touch.

Flavours:

  • Bottom tier: Marble cake with Chocolate Buttercream
  • Middle tier: Vanilla cake with Fresh Lemon Curd
  • Top tier: Marble cake with Chocolate Buttercream

The Bella Cake

An ode to New Moon, from The Twilight Saga.

bella-final

I will admit, I am in my thirties and I am in love with The Twilight Saga.  Sure, call me what you wish, however there are a whole team of women (you know who you are) who love the Series as much as I do.  So much, in fact, that we chat about it at length. When it came time for a good friend to celebrate her 30-something-ish birthday, I thought this cake would be fitting for the occasion.

It is a replica of Bella’s Birthday cake from the movie. See a picture of the real one here Of course, I replaced Bella’s name with the Birthday Girl’s!

Flavours:

  • Bottom tier: Red Velvet cake (fitting for a vampire) with Chocolate Ganache Buttercream
  • Middle and Top tiers: Vanilla cake with Vanilla Buttercream

The Katrina Cake

A dear friend married her sweetheart and I was lucky enough to design her cake, Carte Blanche. It was an outdoor wedding at her family cottage therefore the ‘Homage to Cottage’ which this cake became. They are both artful people, and I knew I could do something a little out of the ordinary for them.

Enter ‘The Katrina Cake’.

katrina-final

A ‘Cottage Blue’ background with Monarch Orange flowers.  Trina and I used to hunt for Monarch butterflies in the summer at the Cottage as children, and it still, to this day, is one of my fondest summer childhood memories.

Flavours:

  • Bottom tier: Chocolate cake with Chocolate Buttercream
  • Top tier: Vanilla cake with Vanilla Buttercream

The Melissa Cake

Such a simple yet gorgeous cake! One of my favourites, for sure.

I loved working with this bride and groom! The bride is a long-time friend who is very crafty and creative. Their wedding conveyed their whimsical style. My first “out-of’-town” cake took me 3.5 hours to Peterborough, ON.

melissa-final

I incorporated the design from the RSVP card into the piped Juniper Green royal icing on the cake with a few leaves to tie in the wedding invitation design. The purple ribbon adds in their accent colour nicely. A perfect harmony of the wedding colours and graphic design! The fluted silver cup is a family heirloom which is usually a cake topper, we decided to change things up a bit!

Flavours:

  • Top, middle and bottom tiers: Marble cake with vanilla buttercream



It’s a Jungle in here!
A baby shower cake for my good friend Catherine.

  • Vanilla cake with caramel filling.
