Love

But I do love The Nightmare Before Christmas. So when a customer of mine called, this is how the conversation went: 

Customer: "Can you do a Nightmare Before Christmas Cake?"

Me: "I can. I've done a few if you want to take a look at them." 

While all the while, screaming in my head, OF COURSE I CAN!!! It's only my favorite movie EVER! Want me to sing you every single song in the movie, right now, over the phone??!!! Because I CAN and WILL if you want me to!!

Because, you know, screaming things like that at my customers might scare them off. Gotta maintain some level of professionalism.

No Love

This babyshower cake was done for a co-worker. I have to say, I like how it turned out. But I don't love trying to add chevron stripes to buttercream. That's all I have to say about that. 


I also don't love cryptic orders taken by my co-workers when I'm not in the bakery. Orders like this: "She wants a liquor/party cake" 

Uh...

This is what I came up with it. She called later to say she loved it.


And lastly, I don't love Frozen. I love the movie, but I was hoping to avoid the Frozen themed cake trend. I didn't succeed. Disney needs to come out with a new princess movie. Quickly.

Tiki God Cake

I modeled this cake off the birthday invitations. Everything is edible, except for the bird, which was a souvenir for the birthday guy.


The invitation:


Alice in Wonderland Cake

I made this cake for a lovely friend of mine, for her baby shower. It is inspired by an Alma Pasteles cake, which you can see here.

I used a real teacup, so that my friend could keep it for the baby's room, which is decorated in an Alice in Wonderland theme.
