Hollywood Birthday Cake for Darren

We were asked to make this very special cake by a friend's friend, for her nephew's 21st birthday.

This cake has a lot of details and we spent a lot of time preparing each of the elements 
with care and technical competence.
  We used chocolate cake for each film reel, and used food safe edible luster dust 
to create realistic metal surfaces. 
Popcorn is made piece by piece, complete with a coating of "butter". 
Clapperboard has dainty lettering to spell the birthday message and name.

Many hours went into it's creation and we are so proud of this cake!

Frozen Design 4 - Frozen Rainbow Rosette Cake for Gwyen

If you know the Queen Bee, you will know that she loves piping! 
Yes, that's me! :)

Once in a while, I will get a request for a buttercream cake. I get very excited!
I do love piping work, it refreshes my skills and I love how I can create pretty swirls and flowers with every stroke. 

My favourite piped item is the swirl rosette, and I call it 
the Baking Bees Perfect Swirl.
When I get a order for a rosette cake, my eyes will light up 
and there's almost a happy dance! ^-^
This rosette cake is our 7th Frozen cake order.

My friend ordered this cake for her daughter Gwyen, this is the 2nd year 
I'm making a birthday cake for her. 
It's always a pleasure to see the young ones growing up.

Happy 6th birthday, Gywen! :)

Such a joy to see the young and old, all enjoying my cake!
Great suggestion, mommi! ^_^

Thomas the Train Cake for Caleb

Indeed, every cake tells a story. We will never forget this order. 

Caleb's mom messaged me while we were on holiday 
in Hong Kong in Nov 2014. 
The most memorable thing is that the order was confirmed 
on our Baking Bees 3rd Anniversary on 29th Nov 2014! :)

Caleb's birthday falls on Christmas Day, so it seems that it is difficult to get bakers to commit to an order on a major holiday. 
I'm a mom of 4, I can understand how important it is to get 
that perfect cake for your child!

We used light blue fondant to cover the cake, made train tracks out of fondant and made Caleb's name in colourful letters. 
Thomas & Friends logo is printed on edible icing sheet. We even loaned the Thomas toy used to decorate the cake.

As the order was confirmed on our anniversary, we decided to celebrate by giving a 10% discount on the cake. 
Instead of telling Caleb's mom up front, we gave her a surprise by packing the refund money into an ang pow (lucky red packet) and passed it to her when she returned the Thomas toy.

A handwritten note accompanied the cash refund.

Happy 3rd birthday, Caleb!
