Heavenly Bites goes to a Wedding!

The day after the mini-cakes were due, I had a 3 tier wedding cake and 130 cupcakes due! Needless to say, there were some late nights last week getting all the decorations prepared, but it was well-worth all the hard work, getting to see the finished projects (and then crawling into bed!)

The wedding cake was a 3 tier Devils Food cake with cannoli cream filling (YUM) and vanilla buttercream frosting. It was covered in sage green fondant, each tier wrapped with a darker green ribbon and decorated with several eye-popping orange tiger lilies (to match the wedding flowers) and pearl dragees in a swirly design...I was so excited with the end result!

The cupcakes were a delicious mixture of flavors...apple cake with cream cheese frosting, banana cake with vanilla frosting and vanilla cake with chocolate frosting...each was topped with a decadent swirl of frosting and either three tiny flowers or one large flower with a pearl dragee center.

Just Finished!

The wedding took place at the beautiful Liberty House in Jersey City, NJ in view of the NYC skyline and turned out to be a beautiful day - so happy for the bride and groom!

Heavenly Bites gets Angelic

This past weekend was a crazy one! By far my busiest yet, with the largest orders I've ever had. First up were mini-cakes for a baptism. The angels on top were made out of fondant. I started making them 2 weeks prior to the event! There were 2 different types of mini-cakes...one was vanilla cake, vanilla filling and vanilla frosting...the other was chocolate cake, white chocolate filling and vanilla frosting. All were covered with fondant, with a ribbon around the base, polka-dotted and marked with the initial "R" for the adorable baby boy being baptized that day.

Next up...a wedding cake and cupcakes!

1960's Style Record Player

Hi everyone! Last weekend, at the request of a client, I made a 1960's style record player for her parent's 60th birthday party - she had a really fun idea of having the record on the player say 1960's Classics, copywright 1949. The cake was a chocolate-lovers dream! Chocolate expresso cake, chocolate filling and chocolate ganache frosting. The whole thing was covered in Chocolate Fondant and handpainted to have a wood-grain look.

It was so much fun making this cake! I received a wonderful email from the client after the party which is the best part of cake decorating - hearing that the cake was a hit! :)
