3tiers - Modern Cake Design

A School of Fish

I happened across of a school of fish in my kitchen one day….except these ones are tasty!

Margaritaville

I had a bit of extra dough and icing (heaven forbid any of this goodness gets wasted), so I whipped these cookies up for my hubby’s colleagues. These Margaritas wouldn’t be complete without a salted rim ( sugar actually….although it disguised itself as salt)!

Happy *1st* Birthday!

When my son turned ONE, of course we celebrated with CAKE! It turned out to be a jungle theme! He had so much fun and sure loved his first taste of Mommy’s sweet confection!  Perhaps it will run in the genes!rostonbday-1-final


Sarah’s Baby Shower

This post is more of a ’show piece’ than it is anything.  I had nothing to do with the below decorating or cookie making.  It was all the work of my Mom, and best friend who happens to be a Graphic Designer by trade.  The final result, the most luxurious Baby Shower a girl could ask for!

I suppose I must get my love of fine baking from somewhere.  My Mom and Dad (yes, it was a joint venture) created the lovely ‘take-home’ Teddy Bear cookie favours.  They were Tequila flavoured cookies with chocolate icing.  Delcicious! My friend did all the conceptual and Graphic Design work.  Truly amazing.  There were numerous other people involved in this day, including my wonderful Husband who did all the photography and coordination.

The KATHY Cake

A beautiful cake for a beautiful bride. This 3-tier white fondant draped cake with teal satin ribbon was topped with fresh white roses and pearl sprays. I added a handmade subtle wire heart to reaffirm the days message of everlasting love.

The LAURA Cake


I had so much fun with this cake! The bride was an energetic and creative friend who gave me pretty much free reign on the design. Wow, what a compliment!

Chocolate fondant with iridescent sugarpaste flowers piled high to the sky! This 4-tier beauty coordinated well with decor and was stunning in the Grand Hall at the Museum of Civilization in Ottawa.

    Flavours:

  • Upper top tier: 4″ vanilla cake with vanilla buttercream
  • Top tier: 6″ vanilla cake with vanilla buttercream
  • Middle tier: 10″ vanilla cake with fresh strawberries and strawberry truffle filling
  • Bottom tier: 14″ vanilla cake with chocolate truffle filling

Tasty Tasters

I usually don’t do tastings.  Reason?  I don’t bake cakes every week and for me to do a tasting, it would take forever. However, when a friend and Client was coming up especially from Bermuda to plan her wedding, it was a special circumstance which warranted a special cake.

trial-final

Flavour:

6″ tier: Chocolate cake with chocolate ganache filling


The LEANNE Cake

An all buttercream “fluffy” cake for one of my longest friends. Sparkles were a request, you may notice the shimmer on all three tiers! All handmade sugar flowers painted with edible pearl dust.

Flavours:

  • Top tier 6″ - vanilla with fresh lemon curd
  • Middle tier 10″ - chocolate with rich chocolate buttercream
  • Bottom tier 14″ - vanilla with fresh lemon curd

The KAT Cake

The theme was daisies!

I came up with this 3-tier beauty incorporating the theme in fresh white wired daisies as well as the wedding colour in a satin ribbon. The ribbon broke up the white with a jazz of colour. A perfect combination for “tying the knot”!

kat-final

Flavours:

  • Top Tier: 6″ marble cake with vanilla buttercream
  • Middle Tier: 10″ chocolate cake with vanilla buttercream
  • Bottom Tier: 14″ vanilla cake with vanilla buttercream

  • The Shower Cake

    For Leanne’s bridal shower, she deserved the best!  The best came in the form of this perfectly pink delicious cake with a perfect bride cake topper, all edible I may add! (Pink and brown were her wedding colours)
