Sculpted Cake: Model T Engine Cake

We created this car engine cake for an 80th Birthday this weekend. The cake replica of a Ford Model T Engine was sculpted in full size to match the original engine. The best part of the story: the customers brought the actual engine to the bakery rather than supplying us with photos. It was such fun perfecting the lettering, cylinders, and other engine parts.

A fan was sculpted from sugarpaste, and then sugar bolts & screws were added - just like the real thing.

The spark plugs to the engine were sculpted out of gumpaste with a flame on top to represent candles.

Our final product measured 20" long by 16" wide and 16" tall.

The car engine cake was delivered to a party in Acushnet, Massachusetts.

The cake flavor included alternating layers of chocolate and vanilla cake with a vanilla buttercream filling.

Baby Shower Cake: Lambs & Ivy Team Safari

We created this "Lambs & Ivy Team Safari" cake based off of a Baby's R' Us line of bedding, furniture, and clothes. The lion which we created out of sugarpaste and sat on the ledge of the cake. We found the picture of the lion on this lamp below.

Blue and brown color schemes have become very popular for baby showers and create an elegant look, we really enjoy creating cakes around browns and blues.

The cake flavor was alternating layers of chocolate and vanilla, and was delivered to a home in Attleboro Massachusetts.

We received this note from Melinda:


The cake was perfect and so were the cookies. I was so proud to have provided them. One thing would be good – next time include your cards so interested people can take one.

Baby Shower Cake: Safari Monkey

This monkey cake was made especially for a baby shower in Boston, Massachusetts. The brown and blue shower was accented with a moneky theme.

This cake was used as a centerpiece for the main shower dessert: cupcakes.
The idea was based on our popular giraffe baby shower cake which can be seen HERE

The cake flavor included devilish chocolate with vanilla buttercream and cupcakes included vanilla butter or devilish chocolate with assorted vanilla and chocolate ganache buttercream.

Tiered Bridal Shower Cake: Gerbera Daisy Cake

We created this three tiered buttercream cake for a "his & hers" bridal shower in Fall River Massachusetts.

The buttercream cake featured handmade sugarpaste gerbera daisies in white with both pale blue and royal blue centers along with daisy vines and stems "growing" up the sides of each tier.

This fun and whimsical cake design is great for baby showers with tiny booties on the top of the cake, for birthdays frosted in bright pink with custom brightly colored daisies or for weddings with white daisies with pale yellow centers topped with a silver monogram.

The cake flavor included alternating layers of chocolate and vanilla cake with our signature bakery icing.

Seashore Themed Cake

We created these cakes for a party at The Bay Club in Mattapoisett, Massachusetts.

Dual parties for three teenagers with a theme of the sea shore with pale seafoams, shades of blue and ocean greens were on the table for the color scheme. We created a round three tiered whimsical wave cake design with a pale seafoam background and dark "tiffany blue" wave pattern around the circumference of each tier. The topper included three real starfish each representative of the three girls.

The second cake is a mod circle design also in ocean and sea colors to match the decor and floral centerpieces at the event.

These two cakes show the diversity of color and shape and how similar yet different cakes in the same color scheme can be.

A Novel Idea! Skeleton Justice: It's Dr. Baden's Birthday

Mrs. Baden came into the bakery about a month ago with she and Dr. Baden's new novel Skeleton Justice and asked us to recreate the book out of cake. What fun! Here is the final product.

I recieved a signed copy as a gift as well, and what a thrilling read! You can buy Dr. and Mrs. Baden's book HERE on Amazon

Wedding Cupcake Display @ Tabor Academy

We delivered this simple cupcake display yesterday to a wedding at Tabor Academy in Marion, Massachusetts. The color scheme was set in shades of pale pinks, and the bride had requested a simple cupcake display with only scattered flowers. Azaleas were her flower of choice and each had a sugarpaste pearl center.

The cupcake stand was custom trimmed in a pale pink grosgrain ribbon to match the decor of the event. We can customize any cupcake stand in any ribbon color or have the stands painted to match the decor of the event.

The cupcakes included vanilla butter and devilish chocolate with vanilla buttercream.

Wedding Cake: Red Roses, Ribbons, and Shimmer

We delivered this glittery wedding cake to the Marion Social Club for Christine and Hart's big wedding celebration. Christine came to us with two requests: she loves bling, and she loved red roses. Not a problem! We designed this glitter covered cake topped with a lush bouquet of red roses with crystals placed in the center of each flower, the top tier of the cake is wrapped in a grosgrain ribbon with a pearl and crystal brooch as the focal point.

A huge thank you to A Wareham Florist for the beautiful rose topper for this cake!

The cake flavors included: Spice Cake with Calvados Apples and Vanilla Butter Cake with Strawberry Marmalade

We created this cake for a baby shower held at Cranebrook Tea Room & Restaurant in Carver, Massachusetts.

The theme was giraffes and jungles for the new baby girl. The cake flavor was chocolate with vanilla buttercream and we copied the sugarpaste giraffe from the invitation. A ring of 30 cupcakes surrounded the cake at the restaurant which made for a beautiful presentation without having to worry about our cupcake stands!
