Getting Inspired

Where do you go to get inspiration for cakes, cookies, cake pops, and cupcakes? I have always turned to Pinterest! It’s probably why my pinterest account has soo many pins! I have been an avid Pinterest user for years!

Most of my clients send pictures of what they want their cakes to look like when they place their orders. Which takes a lot of the creativity out of planning the cake. I do have quite a few loyal customers who will send multiple pictures of cakes. They have one detail from each photo that they want me to incorporate into one cake.

Those type of requests are fun to me. I get to be more creative with the cake, cupcake, cake pop, or cookie.

I wouldn’t know what to do without Pinterest! I get a lot of my inspiration from there.

Where do you get your inspiration from?

Pricing

Here I will outline the general starting prices for cakes, cookies, cupcakes, and cake pops. Please keep in mind that depending on the amount of detail that is needed for your order and the amount of fondant used on each cake will make prices vary. Please message me directly via email or on my business Facebook page for further details.

Thank you and don’t hesitate to message me with any questions or concerns. I look forward to hearing from you!

Rapunzel and Steph Curry Cakes

Here are the cakes that I was priviledged to make this week!

The Rapunzel cake looks simple enough right! That hair though. lol. I had to concentrate and make sure it went the right way. I had to scrape it off a few times because it wasn’t turning out the way I wanted it to! It turned out fantastic. The birthday girl LOVED it!

The Steph Curry inspired cake has a basketball as the sides of the cake and the Golden State Warriors logo on the top. The Entire cake was made with colored buttercream icing!

If you have a design in mind for a special cake please message me via email or on my Facebook Business Page.

Cakes of all sorts!

Here are the cakes that I just finished up Friday night! Loved how they turned out. Not happy about how the towers started fall before the client was even out of my driveway. They are super top heavy since the roofs are covered in buttercream icing and sprinkles. I sent her with some buttercream icing, royal icing, and sprinkles just in case. The other 2 cakes where for a pair of sisters celebrating their birthdays with a joint party. The inside of the scroll work cake was rainbow with sprinkles that spewed out when it was cut into. The mermaid inspired cake was strawberry cake colored to do a pink ombre’ affect and it also had sprinkles on the inside that spewed out when cut into! They LOVED their cakes. Next time I receive an order for the princess castle cake it will be delivered. That way I can fix any issues that come from traveling with it. I hope it wasn’t to big of a disaster when she arrived home. Fingers crossed. I have been trying to upload the inside of the 2 cakes but for some reason it won’t allow me to. Once I get that figured out I’ll update the post.

Cakes, cakes, and more cakes…………

This is what I have been up to the past few weeks.  I am definitely getting better and starting to enjoy making them since I have a system set up to where I am not doing everything all in one day.

I’m Back……………

I have been so super busy!  I have been trying to get my 3 year old ready for preschool, my 6 year old ready for 2nd grade, and apparently this month is the hot month for me to make cakes!  I am just now starting to get back into the groove with sales starting up for the winter months!  I am always super busy during the colder months.  I have a lot of new things that I have been trying to spread out and keep everyone interacting with my Facebook page as possible!  As a Mad Mad Maker one of the biggest things for me to keep up on is having my present year round.  With 3 kids it is really hard when all they want to do it play outside.  I have had to get creative this year so that I could keep crocheting while they played.    I have been debating with myself whether or not to enter into the local craft shows.  I found a website that allowed me to have the contact info for the 3 biggest ones around Northern Kentucky area.  I am scared to go ahead and enter myself into these craft shows one is because shoppers like instant gratification.  I don’t feel that I have enough merchandise ready to be shipped and out the door for 5000 + shoppers for that fair.  I think that I will be ready for sure next year.  But I have also been looking at the smaller craft shows that are not so local.  I am just so torn on what to do.  If all else fails there is always next year right?!

Anyways here is a few pictures of what I have been up to lately.  Enjoy!
