Before and After

This is most definitely the tallest cakes I’ve ever made. It stood about 40″ high including the figurine and it served 200 people. It was for a wedding in Chinatown.  Below you’ll see the sketch and the finished product. And the finished product.

Fall/Halloween cakes

This is probably one of the cutest things I’ve ever made (besides the red sox golden retriever of course).  It was for a 5yr old who had a halloween bday and loves Batman, which is why the middle monster is wearing a batman costume.  I couldn’t look at the monsters with out smiling, I half… Read more »

Sweet 16, ride the waves

Two girls had their sweet 16 birthdays on a party boat in Boston Harbor.  Their invite had a cute picture of the two of them screaming/laughing on an inner tube being pulled behind a motor boat.  As always, I replicated this in sugar.  Dolphins added just for fun : )

Sept. 09 Sculpted Cakes

A guitar student of my husband’s had her bat mitzvah recently and I made her cake.  Her theme was travel and she had decorations and food from many different countries so suitcases were very fitting. A surprise cake for a steam engine enthusiast.  It was his 75th birthday.

Painted Cakes

This was one of the most fun cakes I’ve done.  I got to use the white fondant as canvas and paint the entire cake (with food coloring of course).  This was for a boyfriend’s birthday, and yes, blink 182 is his favorite band.  I created the figurine to look like the guy,  he came along… Read more »

Cute Penguin Alert!!

You’ve been warned. This little guy was a groom’s cake for a wedding I did last week at the Four Seasons.  As is tradition with adorable cakes, he needed a name, so we decided to call him Gus.  Since his head was made of rice crispy he’s a little more slender then was our last… Read more »
