Leopard & Bling

All the drama a Diva could ask for…Leopard & Bling was the theme for this cake made for Lauren.  A Vanilla Cake with Swiss Meringue Buttercream and a Mocha Cream Filling between layers.  A hand painted Leopard print in tan’s blacks and a shiny gold.  I made this look like a pretty package topped off with black fondant ribbon and a gumpaste black bow and to add that final touch some edible sparkly gems!  Purrrrfect dahling!

60TH Anniversary

A special 60th Anniversary cake last weekend.  A White tiered cake with a Lemon Cream Filling and frosted entirely with a Swiss Butter-cream all in pretty roses large and small.  Glistening Gumpaste Snowflakes because they were married so close to Christmas… My mother’s father dropped their wedding cake (Oooops!), so I thought I would make them a special one for their 60th.

In celebration of a 70th birthday, Village Sweets made a “70” Birthday Cake.  One of the cakes,  vanilla flavored with an orange cream filling, the other a chocolate cake also filled with an orange cream and both were topped off with big round chocolate roses frosting…  Happy Birthday Roberta!

Love doing Theme Cakes !!

Village Sweets created their first “Make-Up” cake…  woohoooo!  First the cake, a vanilla cake with a Dulce de Leche filling plus a whipped cream filling and I frosted the cake with a smooth Vanilla Butter Cream frosting and topped it all off with a Pretty Pink Fondant covering.  A quilted look with silver Dragées just made it gorgeous, some gum paste make up accessories and voilà this cake was ready to get eaten!

Girly Girl Baptism Cake

It’s been a while since my last post.  Village Sweets created a Baptism Cake for a cutie pie “Lily-Rose”.  I made some Royal Icing Roses and painted them a soft iridescent Pink, roses to go with her name…  Gumpaste Bow and a Gumpaste Baby, I even added a cute ruffled diaper.  I draped a rosary across the cake as well.  Vanilla Cake and a Swiss Buttercream Icing, covered in an off-white Fondant.  

(This cake idea was from  Sophie Lacourciere, via Pinterest).

Cuckoo For Trains

Monday was “Train Cake” day.  Another theme cake for Village Sweets.  The plan was carefully thought out and all the little details were fashioned out of gum paste.  The cake flavor was chocolate and it was frosted with a vanilla buttercream.  We made the train in 3 cake pieces which were all covered with fondant.  We think it turned out pretty great for our first “Train Cake”.  (A little note, this cake was made with Splenda rather than the traditional white sugar). Thank you Caroline!

Village Sweets will soon be coming to YOUTUBE….Watch for us!!

Decadent Yuletide Cakes

Yuletide logs or here in Québec, “Bûche de Noël” are an absolute tradition in my family.  I have made them every year now for quite some time.  I am most fond of the Vanilla cake with Mocha filling and a deep Chocolate frosting.  I think it’s really my favorite, especially if you like coffee.  I now bake a delicious Vanilla cake with a “Tutti-Frutti” filling (cherries and peaches, yummm!) with a Vanilla-Almond frosting and delectable White-Coconut Chocolate bark, oh my I can’t wait to eat it!!  

Village Sweets has our Specialty Yuletide Logs (Bûche de Noël) on our Menu for ordering in case anyone is interested…
