Chartreuse Stripes and SeaShells: CupCake Display

We created this CupCake Display for a Bridal Shower at the Halifax Country Club. Chartreuse green stripes covered the top cake while the cupcakes were simply frosted in pale green frosting and white buttercream.

The top cake featured a seashell topper, this time we used seashells straight from the beach so the bride could save them as a keepsake. Each cupcake was sprinkled with a tiny bit of turbinado sugar for a sandy look and the cupcake stand was decorated with a few shells and bit of sand as well.

Old Hollywood Wedding @ OceanCliff Hotel

This classic white fondant wedding cake featured an open peony which measured 6 1/2" in diameter. The bride asked for a simple white old hollywood theme. We also covered the board which the cake sat on in Navy Blue fondant and trimmed it our in black satin ribbon to match the Navy Blue and Black bridesmaid dresses.

The cake flavor was lemon buttermilk with alternating layers of seasonal berries and vanilla buttercream.

Here is what Nicole had to say about us on the wedding website Message Board for Rhode Island:

"Cake - The Artisan Kitchen Rochester, MA A+
Very affordable, beautiful and extremely delicious cake. Way better than any of the cakes I tasted while looking at the high-end RI bakeries."

Vintage 1969 Antique Rambler Car Cake

We created this cake for a "car collector" this was his favorite in his collection. Even the color was true to the original and many of the little details including the bumper, lights, and grill were pulled from the original pictures.

The cake featured our devilish chocolate flavor.

Couture Stripes

We created this cake for a fun and fanciful wedding reception at The Kinsale Inn in Mattapoisett.

This buttercream cake featured extra-tall tiers, each measuring 6 inches in height and was decorated in fun swirls and dots. The couture ribbon around each tier coordinated with the centerpieces and bride's flowers. The topper is a hand made paste bouquet in fushias, yellows, blues and greens. The flowers were ribbon roses, simple five petal azaleas, green tendrils, and buds.

An Evening at Great Hill: Farm to Table Dinner

We are fortunate enough to be involved in supporting many charitable causes in South Eastern Massachusetts- but the Farm To Table Dinner is one of our favorites which supports SEMAP (South Eastern Massachusetts Agricultural Partnership). Although the Buzzard's Bay winds blew and the unseasonable rain sheeted sideways into the tent, we enjoyed every moment of the evening, held at Great Hill Farm in Marion Massachusetts.

This photo courtesy of Chad Michael Peters, the official photographer of the 2009 Farm to Table Dinner, features our Herb & Roasted Potato Loaf served at each table. We also prepared an Arruda's Dairy Panna Cotta Parfait with Goat's Milk Strawberry Yogurt Bavarian and Orange- Cervelli's Roasted Strawberry Gelee for dessert, one of our best customers commented--"I was licking the cup, but my husband told me to stop!"

Check out How on Earth: The Store to purchase our Panna Cotta Parfaits and Herb & Roasted Potato Bread on Fridays & Saturdays.

Abby Cadabby Cake

We sculpted this Abby Cadabby figure for the top of a birthday cake using sugarpaste and modeling chocolate. Her coloring and dress were made to match the plates at the party. The three dimensional frigures are a great alternative to our flat-art cakes and trust us-- kids love to eat them too!
The cake included fun multicolored borders along with a sprinkling of fairy dust over the entire cake!

A Baby "Animal" Shower: CupCake Stand & Top Cake

We created this pastel baby animal cupcake display for a baby shower at Cranebrook Tea Room in Carver, Massachusetts.

The cupcake stand held 35 cupcakes while the top cake was saved for the new mom and dad to enjoy after the shower. These cupcakes are in our boutique-cupcake-line, each animal, wired letter and pearl decor are each made by hand.

50th Anniversary Classic Buttercream Design

We created this classically decorated buttercream cake for a 50th Wedding Anniversary. The decorations included buttercream sqags, rosettes and swirls reminiscent of the 1940's and 1950's. The topper, a beautiful display of ivy, white sugarpaste calla lillies, and pale green lily of the valley was made by hand.

One of my multi-talented employees, Melissa Bliss, took some fantastic photos while working yesterday morning, she is available for kid's parties, birthday, and small weddings and can be contacted by Email at:

Gecko Lizzard Grooms Cake

This colorful sugarpaste gecko caught everyone by surprise at Nick & Blaise's wedding in Poughkeepsie, NY. This groom's cake was created for a gecko-loving-groom as a gift from his bride. The house, rocks, sand, and lizzard are totally edible and realistic.

This cake would be a great centerpiece for a young boy's birthday party or as a gag gift if placed in an glass aquarium!

The cake flavor included devilish chocolate cake with vanilla Italian buttercream.

Seaside Classic in Little Compton Rhode Island

I always joke about how fortunate I am to be able to deliver beautiful cakes to beautiful vistas, each one is like a little vacation for me. From Southeastern Massachusetts, to Coastal Rhode Island to Cape Cod and the South Shore the views are fantastic. But beyond that- I love making cakes to match the views!

This classic cake with modern touches was delivered to a summer home on the Sakonnet River in Little Compton, Rhode Island. White and blue seasonal blossoms adorned the tables and this cake sat front and center on the buffet in front of the picture window. Cabbage roses handmade from sugarpaste sat atop the white fondant covered cake with a modern wave detail. We heard the bridal shower was a huge success and the ladies enjoyed the vanilla butter cake with vanilla Italian buttercream.

Tiny Rose CupCakes

Baby Showers have hit the bakery in the past few months and we do lots of baby shower cakes but I love cupcakes for a baby shower. We created 80 cupcakes for a Baby Shower for a little girl the tiny roses (only 1/2" in diameter) were in pink and also in white with a tiny sage green leaf. We sprinkled the cupcake with a tiny bit of sanding sugar for a little sparkle! The cupcakes were vanilla butter or devilish chocolate with vanilla bakery icing.

Callas & Pleats Wedding @ Oceancliff

The west coast bride met with me in December while home for the holidays she had a vision of pleats and calla lillies. After much sketching, we came up with the design with vertical pleated fondant on each tier. The cascading handmade sugarpaste calla lillies popped off of the pearlized white fondant. Danielle loved the idea of "a little bit of brown" somewhere on the cake. We decided on a dark chocolate covered cake drum, the rich chocolate color reminds me of leather, which is a great masculine play on a very feminine cake! We delivered this cake to the stunning Ocean Cliff Country Club in Plymouth, MA.

We know her guests enjoyed our signature Fiori di Sicilia Cake with Apricot Marmalade.

Twins Polka Dots Birthday Cake

We created these two birthday cakes for twins: a boy and a girl. One is a fan or chocolate cake, the other of vanilla. The mom who ordered the two cakes asked if they could match in style but have one in teals and blues and the other in girlie colors. Polka dots are a great design for all ages! The cakes were frosted in our Bakery Style Icing a much sweeter kid-friendly icing it is much much sweeter than our traditional Italian buttercream

Mod Blue Wave Cake for 50th Birthday

This 5oth Birthday Cake was created for a fisherman in New Bedford, his two children wanted something with a nautical theme but no an obvious nautical theme- so this mod design was it. Hand painted dark blue and silver deco patterns adorned the cake with overlays of blue waves.

This second cake was made specifically for candles to serve to the person of honor and was covered in marzpian.

We delivered this cake to The Sky Room at Hawthorne Place in New Bedford, am exquisitely restored mill, which has a great view of Buzzard's Bay and even out to the Elizabeth Islands, Martha's Vineyard and Cuttyhunk.
