winter wedding cake

Just had to share this adorable winter wedding cake! This one was actually commissioned by my cousin who was getting married nearly 6 hours away from my shop! (no... I don't make that sort of delivery for just anyone!!!)

It was really fun to actually attend a wedding with my cake, and hear the reaction of all the guests!

Perhaps my favourite recent animal cake! This was for my son's 6th birthday... he was having a pirate themed party, then saw the movie G-Force and begged us for a guinea pig!

Well since rodents freak my hubby out, that's not going to happen. Instead, my son got this adorable cake (complete with a "wooden" peg leg at the back which you can't see in this photo!)

Props to my friend Debbie who did an incredible white guinea pig cake which inspired me to do this cake!

This cake always makes me grin. I love doing very personal cakes, even if they make no sense to anyone else!

This more than 2 foot tall jersey cow was created for the grandfather of a very dear friend. He was turning 90(!) and they were celebrating in style!

Though not privy to the whole story, I was told that he raised jersey cows for most of his adult life, loves he tv shows, and enjoys nothing more than a bowl of cheese curds and maple syrup. His nemesis has been a saucy squirrel who lost his tail but still manages to torment!

So we put all of those factors together and sat the saucy squirrel on the back of the cow; noshing on a bowl of Grandpa's favourite snack while hogging the TV remote!

Another non-carved, non-wedding cake (yes, we DO make those, sometimes!)

Everything on the cake is edible (except the handlebars!)
