This was an exciting week for Heavenly Bites Cakes with orders for a christening and a 1st birthday for twins! It was a lot of work, but totally worth it...and good prep for next week, when I have THREE cakes due in one weekend!

The christening was for a sweet little angel named Andrew John - hence the fondant angels on the cake!  His mom is a three-peat customer! I had the honor of doing her wedding cake/cupcakes as well as her baby shower cupcakes, so to be doing the christening cake for her as well was awesome!

The bottom tier was devils food cake with white chocolate mousse filling and vanilla buttercream.  The top tier was yellow cake with chocolate ganache filling and chocolate buttercream. YUM.


Additionally, I made vanilla sugar cookies in the shape of an "A", for Andrew, for party favors - they were covered in blue royal icing and decorated with white sprinkles around the edges...

All wrapped up with a party to go to! :)

The second order for the weekend was for brother & sister fraternal twins, Laia & Max who turned 1 this weekend!  For their party, their mom ordered a smash cake for each child to enjoy and a larger cake for the guests!  I somehow neglected to take a picture of the larger cake :( but it was very similar to the smash cakes, but incorporated both the boy and girl color schemes with the Happy Birthday Banner, a fondant "1" and the ribbon around the base of the cake made in a light purple color as the in-between neutral color! :)

Here are pictures of the two smash cakes!

The smash cakes were vanilla cake & buttercream frosting, while the larger cake for the guests was vanilla cake, with chocolate buttercream filling and white chocolate mousse frosting.

Looking forward to next weekend where I'll be making a casino themed 95th birthday cake, an Elmo themed cake for a set of twins 1st birthday and baby shower baby in blanky cupcakes and yellow duck sugar cookie favors!

Text me!

As texting has become hugely popular, especially with the teenage set, I designed these cupcakes for my sweet cousin-in-law who turned 13 last week! 13!! I remember back in college when my husband (future husband, at that time) missed a swim meet to go home to her christening to be her godfather!!

I was thrilled to do these cupcakes for her party as she stepped into the teenage years!

Happy Birthday Jeana!!

Babies in Blankies

This week, I made cupcakes for a baby shower for a sweet mom-to-be.  Our families grew up together and it's so amazing to see her about to start her own family!!

Her mom requested baby in blankies cupcakes, which I had posted an example of on my blog about a month ago. I jazzed them up a little more for this occasion and everyone was very pleased with the result!

The cupcakes were a mixture of chocolate & vanilla cake and frosting - traditional and delicous!!  These baby toppers are pretty popular - I have another order for these in a few weeks! :)

Happy baking everyone!
