Gold and white wedding cake

Wow! It's been too long since I posted here :(.  I have been putting together material though but has been very, very busy.

I made this cake this weekend and was pleasantly surprised by the outcome - beautiful! The bride initially wanted pearls but we had a few a challenges so settled for gold which was part of her colour scheme.  I was initially skeptical and thought it would look gaudy but I was soo wrong!  I love this cake and hope you do too.

Chandelier wedding cake

In the evening of 9 March 2014 I received a call from a potential client wanting a wedding cake.  It was past 5pm and I had company so was debating whether to go meet up with this client immediately (my cake shop is not too far from my house) or fix an appointment for a later date.  Curiosity got the better part of me so I decided to meet with her that evening.  This meeting proved to be a turning point in my cake career :)!.  The request was for a 5 tiers upside down chandelier cake!!! My excitement knew no bounds, this was a first here in Ghana and also for me! :).  That evening and the next few nights I could hardly sleep from anticipation of the wedding date and it remained so for some days till gradually it all settled in. I designed the cake stand and internal structure and supervised it's construction and come 26 July 2014, all our dreams came to fruition and everybody involved was satisfied.  The cake was a HUGE hit as intended and the bridal party was full of praise for my work.  Am greatly humbled and thankful to God Almighty for this breakthrough.

A million dots wedding cake

Oh my, I wish I knew what I had let myself into when I accepted to do this design for a client! Anyway, the cake turned out beautiful and tasty and everybody had good things to say about it so my client is happy, am happy, everybody is happy!  That is why I make cakes :)!

High top shoe cake

I have always wanted to do a sneakers cake and so was planning to do one for my son when this order came in.  My excitement at doing this was almost dampened by the problems I was having with the fondant but in the end it all worked out good.  A few lessons learned to be carried forward to the next project :)!

Milo birthday cake

Milo happens to be a favourite chocolate drink for many in my part of the world (myself included).  I however never in my wildest thought imagined it as a cake!  I was approached by this young lady who wanted a birthday cake for her sister who had a great love for milo and shoes.  I have so wanted to do a shoe cake forever so my first thought was yes! But she wanted the cake done in a couple of days and that meant not enough time for a beautiful shoe cake :(.  I therefore decided to do a milo tin cake since I don't recall seeing any.  It came out beautiful and she was very happy with it :).

Enjoy your cup :)!

Pink and white wedding cake

I had the privilege of making a wedding cake for a secondary school mate recently!  This project was special to me because she is such a wonderful lady who has seen some challenges in her life but was able to set all that aside and help others.  She always has a smile and is willing to offer support.  She so deserves to be happy and me being part of it was a blessing.

Birthday month

I always look forward to the month of March since its my birthday month.  As always I will plan several weeks ahead the type of cakes I would make for myself and never make them :).  I always find myself booked down with orders and end up not making the cake of my dreams.  Last year I was too tired to even bother and prayed that someone will surprise me with a cake.  As it turned out no one did so there was no cake on my birthday!!!  This year I promised myself that no matter what the circumstance I will cut a cake on my birthday.  It so happened that I had cake orders to deliver but I still made me a cake which had two things I liked; Bethy Boop and hexagon.

I took the cake to my work place to share with colleagues and they loved it.  I even got a request to repeat the design for another's birthday. 

Cheers and happy birthday to me :)!
