Alice In Wonderland inspired cakes!

We were commissioned to create this beautiful trio of cakes for a very special young lady named Madison for her Bat Mitzvah party which was held in El Paso, Texas on Saturday, February 21, 2015.
Madison wanted the colors of the cake to co-ordinate with the party so we only used the light blue, red, black, white & gold. All items on the cakes were made from sugar including the Cheshire cat, queen of hearts crown and mad hatter pocket watch. 
YES, we shipped all 3 cakes and their handmade accessories to El Paso, Texas and YES everything arrived intact and on time.
What so many of you don't know is that we DO ship our handmade creations all across the nation and have done so for many, many years now.

Eagle Scout Cake

Congratulations to Dorian for the awesome achievement of Eagle Scout. This was a really fun Eagle Scout Cake to create. All of the badges were edible and we made one for each of the badges that Dorian earned. The 3D Eagle was also edible and created out of modeling chocolate.

Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Cake

We recently had the pleasure of creating a wedding cake for a couple that have been customers for a while. Instead of a traditional wedding cake they wanted one that would reflect their shared interest in the video game Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. We created this cake by painting the map on the bottom tier, and a helmet and sword sculpted with sugar. As always, everything on our cake was edible, however, the bride wanted the hemlet and sword as a keepsake.

Adidas High Top Sneakers Cake

It's been a long time since I've had time to blog so I'm going to post a few updates on some of our favorite cakes that we have worked on over the past 6 months or so. I'll start with what is probably my favorite birthday cake to date. Not only because it was a cool replica of an Adidas High Top Hip Hop Sneaker but also because it was a birthday cake for our friend, the lovely CMT host Kourtney Hansen from her amazingly talented Jeremy McComb (check out

Everything on this cake, as with all of our cakes, was edible. The shoe was carved out of cake and the shoe box was cake. The biggest challenge we had with this cake was that it was difficult to find good pictures of the shoe and our only source was photo's Jeremy took with his cell phone which weren't the clearest but it was a huge surprise for Kourtney.

Jeremy & Madison Wedding @ Camp Dixie

We would like to congratulate Jeremy & Madison on their recent marriage. We thoroughly enjoyed making Madison's wedding cake. When we met with Madison to design her cake she had ideas about certain elements she liked on cakes but couldn't quite visualize how the final design would look in cake so it was a great treat for us to get to see Madison's reaction when we delivered the cake. It's not often we get to see the bride when we deliver cakes so it was awesome to see Madison's face light up as she looked over all the different elements we included in her cake. This 5 tier cake was's hard to tell the scale in the photo... it was 32" tall...The bride chose 3 tiers of Almond Cream Cake filled with fresh Organic Strawberry Coulis and Almond Italian Meringue Buttercream and 2 tiers of Dark Belgian Chocolate Cake with soft creamy Caramel and Caramel Buttercream.

Thomas The Tank Engine Cake

Last May for Devin's 2nd birthday we made a Thomas The Tank Engine themed cake which was designed like the train station with all the trains peeking out of the side. This year for Devin's 3rd birthday he decided he wanted another Thomas cake so to step it up from last year we decided to make him a 3d Thomas the Tank Engine cake. I think this is probably one of my favorite birthday cakes we have made and love how it turned out. We were worried that Devin might want to play with Thomas since he looked so real but instead he was fascinated by it and decided he needed to sit and guard the cake instead of playing outside on the bounce house with his friends! Devin was also quick to point out that Thomas is number 1 and not number 3...we knew that of course but thought since Devin was turning 3 it would be a good way to include it on the cake.
