Bacian Feast Wedding

I delivered this wedding today to Erlowest in Lake George. I was given some basic design information from the bride and groom during our consultation. But she left most of the design up to me. I was to create a "Baccian Feast" themed wedding cake, with green and red being the predominant colors. I was surprised to see when i entered the room, that the cake matched the room and decor perfectly, it looked as if i made the cake in that room! All sugar work was made by me, including every little grape, and leaf. David from Renaissance floral design was there capturing my every move setting up the cake- i can't wait to see his shots. This was the last delivery of a hectic weekend, I really wanted to sit down at the amazingly decorated tables and have a drink, but instead i have to get back to the bakery and get ready for 6 more weddings next weekend!

oh- shea

Shea stadium still stands! This customer is an avid ace of cakes fan and wanted to surprise her new husband with the best grooms cake ever! So when the ace can't deliver- i can! Well Chad delivered it for me- but i  made it! (thanks Chad)

fall wedding season

This one is my favorite wedding cake i have ever done. I combined single a double layer tiers with an elegant white on white design. Gumpaste flower topper is just perfect, and cute budgies honor the bride and grooms beloved pets.

another grooms hat

but this one has a miniature fishing acdc fan with it

Sweet 16

I love this sweet sixteen. Classy and sweet!

Kaki Ball

The Navy honors new Chiefs! The hat was a 3d cake sculpted out of cake and fondant/gumpaste, and is totally edible!

edible images done right

There have been many times when a customer has asked for edible images on the cake. Although we do not have the equipment to make them, some customers order them online, or go to price chopper, get the image for me to put on a Bread Basket cake. In this case- a loyal BB customer purchased images for me to create a fantastic birthday cake for her dad. These images were printed on rice paper which I adhered to gumpaste discs I made earlier in the week. Placed in chronological order, these edible images are perfect to celebrate and honor 90- years.

Yes, John Deere does come in yellow

Her soon to be husband has this dream of owning a John Deere 440 industrial tractor. So what is better than the real thing? CAKE!

A Gift 4 U

Just a few package cakes, cute idea for just about any occasion. 

Bon Voyage Hubby

Cute idea- give your finance a cake to celebrate his departure from upstate ny to Alaska to be a pilot. She provided me with pics of the exact plane he will be flying. I wonder if they will get married in Alaska or here?

Hello.... Is it me you're looking for?

i think this was my favorite cake this summer. The customer called to place a cake order, then when i said "And how would you like it decorated?" She laughed and said, "Any chance you could put Lionel Ritchie on it?" OMG YES!!!  Musical cake themes, with bands, singers, etc. can create quite a buz around the bakery. In the past when I made the Bon Jovi cake, we rocked out, loud to some hair rock, including BJ. You see... it helps the mood. I asked her if it was alright if i played with the greeting to include a song lyric or something, not just plain happy birthday. She was open to the idea, so i jumped on the computer to listen to some lionel, to get my cake groove on.
say you... say me.... say it together......

just a cake update

WANTED: Dead or Alive

Yep- It's Jon Bon himself, singing away atop a birthday cake. I even used "Bon Jovi" font to make the song titles.
Because what else do you give a Jovi fan for their birthday?

Themes in Nature Art exhibit at the Round Lake Auditorium

It was a GREAT night in Round Lake Saturday. Many local artists displayed their works and proved just how talented this village is! I made a cake titled, "Stumped". All the flowers were made by hand over the weeks preceding the event. Everything was edible in this piece, except the wires used for the flower stems. Photos do not give it justice! you had to see it in person! the cake was cut and eaten the opening night of the exhibit to celebrate what is turning out to be a fantastic season at the Round Lake Auditorium.

50 years strong

I was asked to recreate a 50 yr old wedding cake for this couple, and then as a surprise, a grooms cake! An homage to a great couple, their chairs and the party barge!
