shameless

If you've come here for fabulous cake stories, I'm sorry (more soon I promise!)

If you've come here for DA RULZ on our fabulous Geeky Cake Design Contest... see below!

And if you've come here to randomly help my cousin win a car... WOOO HOOOO!!! Have I got the post for you!!! LOL

My cousin Andrew Capyk is one of the finalists in a contest to win a Nissan Cube. If you like voting for stuff, or have 2 minutes to spare, you can vote daily from now until the end of the month. Andrew is getting married in the new year (yes, I am making the cake... details to follow!!) and having a new car would certainly help out this young couple!

Want to know more? Andrew did a quick video on youTube, and has a group on FB (go on... join up and ask Andrew to do something goofy for your vote!) and probably a few other things I've forgotten! If you just want to get on with voting already... go to www.hypercube.ca

and search for CAPYK then vote for him*

* you do have to register to be able to vote. If you are cool with that, GREAT!! If not, then no problem... thanks for reading!

Geeky Cake Contest

Wild Cakes loves a challenge. We also love theme cakes!
You love our Corpse Bride wedding cake.
We all love Cake Wrecks and the Great White Snark. They love geeky cakes.

So... inspired by all this love, Wild Cakes is running a contest for all you closet geeks who have fabulous cake ideas, and nobody to make 'em.

Wild Cakes' first ever Geeky Cake Design Contest starts now and will close April 30, 2009.So how do you enter? Just hop on over to GWS's blog and comment on the contest post! Tell us what you think would be the ULTIMATE geeky cake!

Winner will be chosen based on feasibility (hey, we're good, but gravity still applies!) and just general geeky goodness. It can be based on wildly popular or more esoteric geek pop culture. We love cake sculpting and figure modelling, but wedding cake ideas are welcome too.

Describe your cake idea in general terms in a comment on the blog, and you can then submit additional details and/or a sketch via e-mail to contest@wildcakes.ca (but please post on the blog first and refer to your comment number in the e-mail*)

Winner will get to see their idea produced in cakey goodness. the cake will be added to our web site gallery, and will be on display at all the shows we do in the next season. It may also be featured on a Sunday Sweets on Cake Wrecks and Geeky Cake of the Week on the GWS (if Jen & Mike decide that it is up to their high standards of sweet geeky cake-ness! LOL)

And if all that internet fame is not enough, you also get a custom t-shirt based on your cake design, a copy of Wild Cakes' design sketch and a signed copy of a photo of your finished design!

* note that we reserve the right to adjust or modify the design in whatever way we feel is necesary to produce the best possible cake. If a particular detail is critical to the design, tell us why!
**in the case where more than one version of the same design is submitted, the first one recieved will be considered the winner. If multiple similar (yet substantially different) designs are received, the one that is best described will win.
*** enter as many times as you wish, but each entry must be a different design. Entering the same design 10 times will just annoy us; this is not a raffle where more entries = more chances to win!

Turning 40... with STYLE!

This cake was the result of several phone calls and e-mails! Mr. C's lovely fashionista wife was having a 40th birthday party so he wanted something special to celebrate!!
He also wanted to poke gentle fun at the fact that she had reached this amazing milestone. And pay homage to her planned trip to New York City with her fashionista "girls"
In the end, we decided a Louis Vuitton (her fave designer) purse made of raspberry chocolate fudge cake with certain accoutrements of getting older spilling out would be just the ticket!



Then we added a set of lemon cupcakes with large apples (for the Big Apple) and clock faces (Times Square anyone? Time flies by? All sorts of fun meanings here!)





Fun order, lovely client with a sense of humour... I LOVE MY JOB!!!
