30th August Cakes

This weekend was just enough work to keep me happy. Again a few cup cake towers and two stacked wedding cakes plus I also had a few Holy communion cakes.

This tower will be made up of 120 bite size cup cakes or what we like to call them petites. The flavours were our nice Chocolate Mud, Butter cake, Vanilla Syrup and Choc Pear. Half were iced in white frosting with a small lime heart and the other half were iced in lime green frosting and a small white heart.

I had two white Holy Communion cakes which were iced in white RTR with a bridal white satin ribbon around the cake with a few icing butterflies over the cake. The butterflies were white dusted with a white luster dust just so they looked more special.

*~Keep an eye out as sometime this weekend I will post up my all time favourite cup cake recipe~*

Friday the 22nd - Saturday the 23rd

First of all I would like to say sorry about not writing a blog about my cakes last weekend. I did have some nice wedding cakes that turned out beautiful! but I just got a new phone and I delete the photos by accident not only that I also lost my memory card from my old phone which had over 200 pictures of cakes that I have done in the past. So I'm back at square one with my photo albums. Not too worry...
That week I had a lot of cup cake orders as well as other wedding and birthday cakes but these two orders were my favourite for the week.

Cup cake towers are so much fun! and they do look so good once they are all decorated and on the stand.
I had 45 cup cakes for picked up Friday morning. these were decorated in a mixture of white, light pink and pink frosting with alternate rolled RTR icing rose. The cutting cake was iced in white frosting and had the roses scattered in the different shades all over. I hope they take a photo for me as I'm sure it would look stunning once put together. The mother had decorated noodle boxes for the cup cakes to go into with the pink, light pink and chocolate brown ribbon and a nice label of the bride and groom's name and date of the wedding.

The other order that was my favourite for this week was another cup cake order but of 80 cup cakes and a cutting cake. This order wasn't for a wedding but for a birthday down at a nice cafe situated along the swan river. These cup cakes were iced in a soft pink RTR with chocolate pipe all over with a darker pink blossom with a silver cashou ball as he centre. She brought back the stand and was so delighted on how her birthday cake look and also how good it tasted! All her birthday guests were very impressed and had never seen anything like it. *~mind you she did have our 7 tier cup cake tower! so it would have been a big impression~*

8th-10th August

!What a Weekend!
I had a few cakes that weekend as well as a good mates 30th birthday, a wedding open day at the Mercure Hotel and my normal weekend amount of rugby.

Friday the 8th was pretty busy with weddings for August. I had a few birthday cakes as well as the wedding cakes.

One of the wedding cakes was a cup cake tower of about 80 with the cutting cake on top and custom made icing figurines. Each cup cake had the silver case iced with white frosting piped on using a large star nozzle. The cutting cake was just iced with white RTR (Plastic icing). A 23mm black satin ribbon and a 3mm bridal white satin through the middle with a cute little bow at the front. The icing figurines on top just finished off the cutting cake nicely.

After the setup and delivery of the cup cake tower I then had another cake to deliver which was a small two tier covered in ivory RTR with baby pink satin 9mm ribbon around each tier. I then finished the cake off with some ivory icing drapes with small pink Singapore icing orchids. This cake turned out so beautiful!

Saturday I had another Cup Cake tower to set up and deliver in Fremantle before my rugby game. This bride did'nt want a cutting cake on top, she just wanted a tower of cup cakes. She had about 80 cup cakes with gold cases, iced with white RTR and a rolled icing orange rose on top. The room was half set up when I arrived and once the tower was complete it really looked the part with what was already set up in the room! Wish I could of seen the room finished.

After a nice win at rugby I then had to go back to work and pack my car up with my showroom cakes to go set up the table for the CakeBox at the Mercure Hotel. I only could take 5 of my cakes as we only had a small table. I needed some room on the table as I wanted a tower of our petites for wedding customers to sample cake flavours.

After the setup I then had to head off to a great mates 30th birthday. I made him a Chocolate Mud slab cake with Chocolate Ganache with Chocolate shards around the edge tied with a bright blue ribbon. His partner email me a great picture of him which I then printed out on icing and had that on top along with some nice pipe work with the Chocolate Ganache. They all loved the cake so the CakeBox will be getting some more orders soon hehe.

Sunday after turning up to my Jr girls game in a dress and skate shoes I had to rush off to Perth for the open day. It went so well! Everyone loved a cake samples and also the cakes we had on display. *~Big Thanks to Hayley the business manager and Julia the Head Chef for helping me~* oh and i changed my shoes to heals once i got to the hotel haha.
