My Nephew’s Special Day

This is Caleb and Caianna Guarino’s wedding cake. He’s like a son to me. It was a privilege to do their cake and welcome Caianna into our family.😍 The bottom layer of this cake is strawberry with coconut filling, Caiannas favorite flavors!😄 The top is chocolate with chocolate fudge filling. They had a beautiful small Justice of the Peace wedding. After a couple of weeks they will have a group of their friends celebrate with them in Scottsdale Arizona. Congratulations Caleb and Caianna!!

C’est le gĂąteau de mariage de Caleb et Caianna Guarino. Il est comme un fils pour moi. C’Ă©tait un privilĂšge de faire leur gĂąteau et d’accueillir Caianna dans notre famille.😍 La couche infĂ©rieure de ce gĂąteau est la fraise avec remplissage de noix de coco, les saveurs prĂ©fĂ©rĂ©es de Caiannas! 😄 Le top est le chocolat avec fudge au chocolat. Ils ont eu un beau petit mariage Ă  le Justice de la Paix. AprĂšs quelques semaines, un groupe de leurs amis fĂȘtera  Scottsdale Arizona. FĂ©licitations Caleb et Caianna !!



Macarons et Compagnons

Is there anything better than great Macarons? Maybe great friends!

Our little baker has made her first Macarons!

She struggled a little with the folding in of the whipped meringue/egg whites and the almond flour/powdered sugar…sorry no pictures of that…mom was too excited watching grammy show her how to properly “fold” the ingredients! These beauties are vanilla with chocolate and strawberry filling. You can see that the 1st batch did not crack! She is becoming a master of the pipe bag, (I say generously as it is much more fun to squeeze then stop.) Kait has filled them and topped them. Tell me what you think?? Beautiful or what??!!


Y a-t-il quelque chose de mieux que de incroyables Macarons? Peut-ĂȘtre des amis incroyables!

Notre petit boulanger a fait ses premiers Macarons!

Elle a luttĂ© un peu avec le pliage de la fouettĂ©e meringue / blancs d’oeufs et la farine d’amande / sucre en poudre … dĂ©solĂ© pas de photos de cela … maman Ă©tait trop intĂ©ressĂ© en regardant grand mĂ©re lui montrer comment correctement “plier” les ingrĂ©dients! Ces beautĂ©s sont vanille avec chocolat et fraise remplissage.

Vous pouvez voir que le premier lot ne s’est pas fissurĂ©! Elle est devenue un maĂźtre du sac Ă  pipe, (je dis gĂ©nĂ©reusement car il est beaucoup plus amusant de presser et pas s’arrĂȘter.) Kait les a remplis et les a recouvrir. Dis-moi ce que tu penses?? Beau ou quoi ?? !!

A beautiful couple, and a beautiful cake!

Last weekend our amazing friends got married.  Because they are such a beautiful couple we thought they needed an equally gorgeous cake. They requested this lovely floral naked cake for the reception. We think you might like it as much as we did. Take a peek!


Ewok Engagement Cake

This one’s for all of our readers who are Star Wars fans.  A friend of ours recently asked us to make her an Ewok cake for her engagement. He said yes! So we got to make their wedding cupcakes also.

Pumpkin Everything!

As the fall quickly approaches, so does pumpkin flavored everything. Everything that is, from coffee and scones to ice cream and scented candles. So in that glorious tradition, I thought I would give you a friendly reminder to check out our cake flavors tab and just maybe you will see our favorite fall flavor. Wink wink. 😉

Congratulations on your baby girl!

Billy at west valley glass is having a little girl!

Yes aside from being on the PTSO board of my daughter’s school Oakwood Elementary, working for my Papas Vintage Yamaha Motorcycle company KDI Reproductions and being the Baker of all Bakers…I am an insurance agent for OHL Insurance agency.
Billy and I go back at least 6 years and while taking care of a broken window, he told me they were having a little girl! I was so excited for them, they are the nicest couple.
Billy did me the hugest solid and repaired my window for well below what he should have so I jumped at the chance to make this little gem of a cake for their last minute baby shower thrown by their sister.
Is it possible for birds to be any cuter?! The cake is adorned with a hand crafted peony and hand painted bird.
I just love being able to hand paint. Fondant is the best canvas!  (Take that art majors!)
Tell us what you think is your favorite canvas?
