Lavender Ombre Bat Mitzvah cake

We partnered with our client and Phyllis Skolnick from Extraordinary Productions to design this Bat Mitzvah cake. It includes an ombre color fade from light lavender at the top of the cake to a darker lavender at the base. The glittery swirls decorating each tier include a contrasting ombre pattern in the opposite direction.
Leaf wrapped Monogrammed Topper
The highlight of the cake is a standing gumpaste letter “E” which is wrapped in green leaf decorations and accents of leaves and cascading vines. Decorations include crystal butterflies and small bunches of ecru and lavender roses and hydrangea.

Flavors and fillings included purple velvet cake with vanilla buttercream and chocolate cake with raspberry chambord buttercream. We delivered the cake to Pure Teen Club in South Amboy, NJ.

Dear Anne,
How can I tell you what a central part of my Mom’s party your gorgeous cake played? So many pictures were taken of IT, my Mom with IT, and so many others next to IT. My sister-law from Iowa said she thought it was terrible to cut it up! The flowers were magnificent! The colors were so perfect and, of course, the taste was fabulous! I loved the blush color too!
Mom tried some of the vanilla layer, and some of the chocolate as well. She liked them both. We are all in awe of your artistry. Joan took the flowers to make an arrangement for Mom to keep. Thank you for sharing your talent and generosity in making such a beautiful work of art and a delicious dessert!
Love,
Pat

Sporty Snowman Cake

Sporting Snowman Birthday Cake
This weekend we celebrated my husband Jesse’s birthday. This was a particularly hard year to come up with a unique cake for his birthday as I’ve used up many of his favorite things in past cakes. (Past cakes included this laptop cake, Mr. Potato Head Cake and his blender cake)
Side profile of Sporty Snowman
So after much creative deliberation I came up with this sporty snowman cake that incorporates three of Jesse’s favorite sports – basketball, volleyball and tennis. You may also notice a wedding ring flying off the snowman’s left hand. Incidentally Jesse also lost his wedding ring this year – playing beach volleyball after work. (He rarely ever takes off his ring while playing sports, but has since learned his lesson after losing it this year…)
The cake flavor was peanut butter with peanut butter oreos and cream buttercream and chocolate Italian meringue. We shot at this video at our house at our Christmas party last night:
