Nothing makes me happier than having someone ask me to create a cake like this one. The best part was the look on the birthday boy's face as he asked me "Is it cake?" :D
I created this cake with handmade gumpaste succulents and cookie dirt. The birthday boy loves succulents and has so many flower pots in his house, he placed the cake next to the flower pots and no one ever knew that was his birthday cake!
He was kind enough to leave me a review and this is what he said;
We made this cake for a wonderful, repeat and loyal client! This cake was actually a gift to her son's friend who is proudly going to Cornell University.How exciting! Absolutely had fun with this graduation cake. Both our client and graduate loved the cake! Til next time :)
This week we had the pleasure to create the Jungle theme baby shower cake welcoming baby Matteo! The baby shower cake featured the edible baby lion, giraffe and Monkey!
We absloutly fell in love with this cake and so did the mom and dad to be!
Our favorite beauty from this past weekend was a stunning Bridal Shower Cake which was delivered to a beautiful bride in Riverdale, NJ. The theme for the shower was "Showers of Happiness".
The cake featured a life size, edible high heel shoe and purse! The bride was extremely happy and left us a wonderful review. Thank you Adriana, we wish you a happy and long loving marriage in your future!
This past weekend we made this superhero themed cake for a special young boy who is turning 4! He is absolutely in love with superheroes so we decided to make a model of him and place it on the top tier to make him the ultimate super hero himself!
He is super Gennaro! Hope he had the best 4th Birthday!!
We made this adorable Little Red Riding Hood cake for sweet Allie's 5th Birthday. The venue was so fitting as it was in the Swedish Cottage Marionette Theater in Central Park, NY.
The theater is a puppet theater and the show is Little Red Riding hood. The cake was such a hit and both the guests and our dear client were thrilled with the cake!
When offering fondant to our clients we are so use to hearing "Aghhhh I HATE FONDANT". Clients usually say it's thick and tastes like rubber. Most people love the look and versatility of fondant but have had a bad past experience that latterly left a bad taste in their mouth. :)
Here at Sweet Cake Fetish, want to tell you that not all fondants are created equal. We do not purchase processed fondant that we scoop out of containers. Our delicious fondant is homemade. We use just THREE quality ingredients and make a fresh batch for each cake. Our marshmallow fondant is made out of yummy marshmallows, sugar and vanilla! That's it!! We also roll our fondant as thin as possible, about 1/8 of an inch thick!
So don't fear fondant, especially not ours! Our cakes taste just as good as they look!
This week we created these adorable and delicious Christening Cake Pops for a special client of ours! The cake pops are french vanilla cake with cream cheese frosting and dipped in white chocolate. They featured a small chocolate pink cross and pink candy sprinkles.
Our client was very pleased and send us this message.
One of our absolute favorite things to do is Sugar flowers. We always aim for the most realistic look and details. We some times even add scent to the sugar roses to give you the best experience.
Sugar flowers are almost always made from Gumpaste. Gumpaste is an edible medium that dries very hard which helps the flowers hold their shape and secure firmly to cake. Gumpaste, although edible, is not very tasty and most likely never eaten. The good thing about these flowers and any figurines made with gumpaste is they can be kept forever! This is especially great because you can keep your flowers as keep sake reminder from your special event!
There is no limit for us when it comes to recreating beautiful sugar flowers! The sky is the limit! Check out some of our beautiful flowers that adorn our cakes here!
We recently created this stunning naked wedding cake for a lovely bride for her rustic wedding! The cake featured handmade sugar burlap flowers and accents. I must say, personally, I do love the organic look and feel of this cake. This style of cake is especially trendy for the 2016 wedding season.
In honor of this trend, here is a great article from The Knot describing everything there is to know about the lovely naked wedding cake trend!
