Good Morning!

Dreaming of the spring... A breakfast cupcake!  It was done using the rosettes from Wilton Course 1, and adding some leaves and edible pearls.  Pearls for breakfast???

Happy Birthday, Danielle!!!

When people ask me how long I have been making cakes, I always answer "for a long, long time"... Well, now I can tell you I have been making cakes for more than 9 years! 
Danielle's first birthday was one of my first cakes.  Very pretty cake in orange and yellow, 2 tiers, with butterflies... Unfortunately, I didn't have a good camera then, so I don't have a picture of that one.  And then, I kept on making her cakes: through princesses, pirates, and now this: an electric guitar!!!   It's been fun to see her grow through all her cakes... All I can say now is: Danielle, you ROCK!!!

Con sabor a chocolate...

Chocolate pudding!  The best comfort food for these long rainy days... It makes a great cake filling, but I like it just like this... some cream on top... Mmmm... So good!

Robert's Birthday...

I think I lost count of how many cakes I have made for Robert... It has always been a sports related cake... Except last year...!  But one thing is for certain:  I have always enjoyed making them.  So, here it is again... Happy belated birthday, Robert!!!

Have I told you I love my job...?

I love cakes, I love my students, I love to teach... but I also love what I learn from my students... It's all part of the fun!!!  These photos were taken during our Tall Cakes workshop last Saturday... Enjoy them!

Lara and Trevor...

I never got to post these pictures before... They were with those tons and tons of pictures that I save in order to organize later (procrastination!)...
Anyhow, I was just reading this post at Style Me Pretty Canada about Lara and Trevor's very special wedding... admiring all those photos of some pretty awesome details, and that reminded me I had some of those photos somewhere... so here they are!

The cake was a 4 tier hexagon shaped cake, all covered in buttercream, with fondant lace and chocolate ribbon.  The flowers on the top tier included white roses and fondant succulents!
It was a pleasure to work with LeLe Chan, from Lé Soirées Weddings & Events  who helped to make this wedding what it was: a very unique day!
