Farewell, 2009...

I admit it, I totally got Christmas-brain! I completely forget I had a blog for awhile. Before this year is up I think I should just upload a whole lot of pix I haven't had a chance to share here. It doesn't seem right to leave these hanging till the new year. Here are a collection of cupcakes...

A run for the Hills

I love it when customers want to be a little adventurous. There are numerous Hollywood themed cakes out there but I haven't come across any that have made the Hollywood Hills and paparazzi into a 3D diorama cake. This took a little creativity to visualise but we got there in the end. I particularly like the fact you can see 'around' and 'in between' the cakes, complete with waiting limousine!

Love And Christmas

This week has been THE scariest cake week of my life - 2 wedding cakes, 5 birthday cakes, a couple of Christmas orders... *eek*! But it's all done and iced and all customers are happy as am I! Now on to the edible Christmas gifts for this year... everyone I know is goin to get fat. This is where the Christmas fun starts!! As you can probably guess I love Christmas and look forward to it with open arms, holding rolling pins and piping bags. Here are some I prepared earlier ;) Please have a peek at Love And Cake's Christmas catalogue.

Most importantly, there are so many who won't see a smile or a present this Christmas day and the real spirit of Christmas means doing what little (or a lot) we can to make their situation just a little bit better - sharing the love we have been blessed with. 10% of all proceeds from the Christmas cakes and cookies will go to the Salvation Army who DO do that - every day of the year. That's one small way Love and Christmas goes hand in hand!

Formula for a muscle cake

One of the muscliest cakes I've done, this Formula One racing car belonging to Mark Weber (yes that is his head in that lil white helmet there) was for an F1 fanatic.
Vroom vroom!

The accountant wears Prada

Yet another friend in accounting, I seem to attract them! This accountant loves her Prada handbag so in this collaboration with the girls again, we decided a posh designer + corporate numbers theme would be most fitting. The good thing about having mini cakes is that the main cake can be saved for a later date while we munched on the mini ones that night. The birthday girl was nicely surprised so our job was done. She even showed it to the restaurant owner and left my business card with him! Nice work, BDM!
