Aces & Spades, Rubber Duckies & Elmo

Last weekend, Heavenly Bites Cakes was super busy with 3 parties to deliver cakes for!

The first one was for a party for an amazing 95 year old woman - her family and friends threw her a casino party!

Next up was a baby shower where the mom-to-be's friends threw her a beautiful baby shower in the W hotel in Hoboken, NJ - they ordered cupcakes with blue babies in blankets toppers and rubber ducky sugar cookies for favors (funny story about these).

And last, but not Elmo cake ordered by a mom in Hoboken for her twins first birthday party! And away we go!

The casino cake was made for Rose who just turned 95 - that is amazing! Her friend that ordered the cake from me told me a little about her and she is a fun, energetic lady who keeps everyone laughing and amazed  by her energy! I was so excited to make the cake for her special occasion. Here are some pictures of the casino cake - inside each tier was vanilla cake with cannoli cream filling and vanilla whipped cream frosting.

Next up, the baby shower cupcakes and ducks delivered to the W hotel residences in Hoboken, NJ.  The party was planned and hosted by the mom-to-be's friends and sounded like it was amazing! The cupcakes were a mix of chocolate and vanilla cake with blue and white vanilla frosting swirls. Only some of the cupcakes were ordered with the babies in blankets on them. Here is a picture of the topper that was on the cupcakes.

The ducky cookies were really fun to make and definitely my best sugar cookie work to date - so excited with how the icing came out! They ordered 24 cookies to be packaged in clear cellophane bags with blue ribbons.  I had made 25 since there was an extra spot on the cookie sheet and it's always nice to have extra in case one breaks...and I saved the rest of the dough. (luckily!) See "The Cookie Bandit "post for the story of why it's always good to make extra!!

For the first birthday party of twins Madelyn and Zachary, their mom ordered a version of the Elmo cake I made a few months ago, but changed the base fondant color to yellow since the cake was for both a boy and a girl.  The bottom tier was white chocolate cake with cannoli cream filling and white chocolate buttercream and the top tier was devils food cake with strawberry filling and vanilla bean buttercream.  YUM!! 

Next up, an order for the St. Ann's of Fair Lawn, NJ "SEUSSICAL" cast party featuring the Cat in the Hat, Horton, Thing 1 and Thing 2, the Grinch and Jojo!!
