Slightly odds & ends

We get some interesting cake requests sometimes whether it be for a shaped cake or something with an unusual theme.
Most of them, we can play around with and make it work as a cake-others we say no to.
Note: We don't do erotic cakes though severed limbs may be an option.

Which reminds me, I need to track down the pictures of the Pyramid head in a dress and the Zombie birthday cakes...or was that last one a wedding cake?...

Most of the time, the order revolves around a favorite object.
Sometimes, it's all about work.
I am totally of the opinion that people should have a little fun
with their cakes,
even if it's just something a little different
for a Wedding cake topper.I had a couple in a little while ago who really wanted to have a
Wedding cake with their favorite comic book figurines as cake toppers.
They weren't sure if that was an appropriate thing to do.

I always tell people that it's your Wedding,
make it something that you will be happy with
though I might draw the line at plush animals.
You have no idea how hard it is to get buttercream out of fake fur...

Then there's the cakes of parties past.
Must have been one heck of a shindig.

There's the in joke.
"Hi Matt!"

The "You want that for a birthday cake?
Okay, will do."
(mmmm, fondant eyeballs)The random weirdness in the office moment.
"See, the printer cartridges really DO have faces.
This so proves that printers are alive and out to mess with us."And for the last moment of the slightly odd...
This is a combo birthday cake for a thirty something and a 4 year old.
I'll let you decide for yourselves which is which. Either way, this mash up = Awesome!
And let me tell you, the Snow White figure had really, really scary eyes.
By that I mean, the type of eyes that say,
"I do this for a living and then I roast the remains at my barbeque."
Seriously, her eyes were that creepy.

Cake Perspective

Same cake, two views.

I enjoy having multiple flower options to play with.
Beautiful, no matter which side one gazes upon.
