Unicorn time

unicornWhen my friend Anick told me that her daughter Famke was turning seven and she was having a unicorn-themed party to celebrate, I knew exactly what cake to make her. And…she loved it!

Oh Lord, won’t you buy me…

Mercedes Benz…a Mercedes Benz?
My friend Janet called and asked me to do a cake for her nephew who was celebrating his 65th birthday. Peter is the general manager of a Mercedes Benz dealership, so a cake with a car theme would suit.
I figured the best way to go would be to find a miniature car and make a road scene on the cake. I found a vintage-looking Mercedes online on Etsy. The wee car even has a hood and trunk that both open. Bonus! So after the cake is just a memory, Peter has a take away to remind him of his celebration.

Gone fishing

fishing cakeMarcel is lucky enough to live along the St. Lawrence River and goes fishing as often as he can. He fishes for perch, pickerel, bass, and occasionally he gets pike.
For his 50th birthday, his wife Lori thought a cake that showed his passion for fishing would be just the thing.
I hope Marcel got to go fishing on his birthday and that he snagged a big one!

Bike ride

bicycle cakeThis amazing fellow is turning 80 and is an avid bike rider. His daughter sent me a photo of his “Trek” bike and asked me to replicate it on top of his cake. A fun challenge for sure.
As well, the birthday boy is an avid gardener, so the row of flowers around the sides is a nod to his love of gardening.
I’m guessing 80 is the new 50. There’s hope for all of us. Just keep pedalling, right?

Birthday walk

walking cakeBev is an amazing gal! She celebrated her birthday on the same week she decided to challenge herself to walk from Ottawa to Montreal, walking “Chemin des Outaouais,” some 240 km (150 miles).
Upon her return from Montreal (I bet she got a lift back to Ottawa!) her sister Trice presented her with this cake as a surprise. Well done Bev!
