...a Mercedes Benz? Always been one of my favourite tunes.
Peter, who is general manager of a Mercedes Benz dealership, was celebrating a milestone birthday, so a road scene with a wee vehicle seemed to be the thing to do. (The car is a vintage model with a hood and trunk that actually open. It's not edible.)
Happy birthday to Peter. Hope he loved his birthday cake!
Lucky Marcel lives near the St. Lawrence River and goes fishing as often as he likes. For his birthday, his wife Lori asked me to make him a fish cake. And so, here it is. I hope Marcel got to go fishing on his special day.
To celebrate Canada's 150th birthday, I made a strawberry rhubarb (both locally sourced, natch) pie, and am celebrating with my sis who's joining me from the U.S.A. It will be a Happy Canada Day indeed!
My friend Mandy's grandma was celebrating her 90th birthday and I was asked to do her cake. Mandy told me that Joyce loves cats and flowers and I could do whatever I liked designing the cake. I had so much fun! The cake was half chocolate, half vanilla, the kitten was made with Rice Krispy treats, covered with fondant, the butterfly was made of gumpaste and the daisies were fondant.
Apparently Joyce was delighted with the cake and it fed 50 or so guests celebrating her big day. Happy birthday Joyce!
My friend Peter gave me a set of "Russian tips." I had seen them on various websites and figured it was time to give them a try. What fun. I love working in buttercream and if you stripe the bag with different colours, the tulips are striped too. I thought this cake covered with beautiful tulips was a perfect statement now that spring is finally here.
Marthe called the other day to say that hubby Robert was celebrating a big birthday. He's a deer hunter and she wanted a cake in the shape of a deer. I sent her some other ideas that might be fun and we both decided this was the way to go. A hunter and a deer, sitting side-by-side roasting marshmallows. How fun is that?
A friend of mine is having a granddaughter and was hosting a baby shower for her daughter. Since it's going to be a girl, we concentrated on using pink. And since her daughter calls her husband "Bear," the baby is called "Baby Bear." Here's the cake for the shower.
As a takeaway, sugar cookies decorated as sleeping baby girls were given as thank you gifts.
The cookies were individually wrapped and were waiting at the door as you left.
And here's the adorable mom-to-be Jennifer with the cake I made for her shower. Best of luck to Jen and her new arrival.
