2 jungle animal themed baby shower cakes

Both of these cakes were designed to coordinate with the nursery theme and were inspired by our previous jungle themed baby shower cakes. The 2 tier cake was created to coordinate with the quilt. The second cake was made for a couples BBQ shower and was done to coordinate with a giraffe and purple themed nursery.

A Pink and Green CupKate Celebration

pink and green first birthday cupcake tower

This 1st birthday cupcake tower was created for a pink and green cupcake themed celebration. The little one's name is Kate and her nickname is cupcake or cupKate so this were the perfect design for her 1st birthday. The jumbo cake was used as her smash cake which she definately enjoyed and made a big mess with chocolate cake everywhere. The mom requested pink, green and sparkly so to get the cupcakes extra sparkly we dipped them in crystal sugar - so girly!

The party favors were white chocolate dipped marshmallow pops sprinkled with pink nonpareils. The custom tags were made to coordinate with the adorable party invitations that were handmade by a local crafter.

Chocolate Baby Blocks Baby Shower Sheet Cake

The 1/2 sheet cake (12 inches by 16 inches) was ordered for a recent baby shower with a blocks and baby feet theme. The baby blocks that we make are very popular - each block is made from 6 pieces of molded chocolate and we have the option of using 4 blocks to spell BABY or 3 blocks for ABC (or any name that you spell with the letters ABCY such as ABBY).

Here's a few other baby shower cakes we've done in the past incorporating the chocolate baby blocks:

I love this cake - the colors and the design. This cake was ordered by a customer who I had created her baby shower cake for her (the very popular pink and black ladybug baby shower cake) and when it was her turn to host a shower she contacted us to create a design to coordinate with the partyware and invitation for a couples shower. The cake is white sourcream cake with 2 layers of chocolate mousse filling and a center layer of raspberry mousse and iced with chocolate buttercream.

3rd Birthday Construction Themed Cupcake Cake

Brendans construction 3rd birthday cupcake cake

I created this cupcake cake for our family party for my son's 3rd birthday. I've already posted his dinosaur cupcakes that I sent to school and I still have to post his big birthday party that was dinosaur themed. Because he has a December birthday we had a small party on his birthday with family and then a larger party with his friends in mid January. He's a typical boy and loves construction trucks and has learned the names of all the different types. The road is made from fondant and the dirt is Oreo cookie crumbs. I purchased the vehicles from Toys R Us.

Packaged Dinosaur Birthday Cupcakes

I created these packaged cupcakes for my son's birthday celebration at his preschool. The cupcakes were done in a bright blue, green and orange topped with a stegosaurous or triceratops on each with a note that read "Happy 3rd Birthday Brendan". They send the treats home with the kids so I packaged the cupcakes in bags with custom tags. The cupcake are iced with fondant so that they wouldn't get messy in the bags.

Sleeping Bear themed baby shower cake

This baby shower cake was designed to coordinate with the nursery theme of bears, paw prints and plaid in a muted red, brown and tan. This cake is a 12 inch round which serves approximately 45 - we decided against a two tiered version because the customer was transporting this cake several hours north.

We love to hear from our customers and received 2 great emails right after the shower from our customers who ordered this cake:

I know my mom sent you an email regarding the cake. I too want to thank you for working with us and really making it a big hit! We did pass out cards and people thought it was delicious! I hate to say this, but I was really nervous that people wouldn't stick around for the cake and/or not want a piece thinking it would be too much. But some people came back for seconds. We of course, had a piece and it was great! Everyone couldn't say enough about the taste and the presentation of it. I'm sure you get a ton of compliments on your work, but we really wanted to express our thanks and the feedback. S.

the second email

Hello this is D., S.'s mom. You delivered the absolutely most cutest bear cake to us Friday. We delivered it with no problems up to Chino Valley and it was in good shape. I'd like to thank you for making it and going way above what we expected. I know you put a lot of work into it, to make it to our color specs etc. Its obvious you do good work by your website, but to see it in person, was so much more unbelieveable...Everyone was very impressed with it, and the taste was wonderful. We had plenty for everyone, including all the men we anticipated taking home pieces. your suggestions on how to cut it and to take the little bear off really helped. it worked out perfect. he came off all in 1 piece, including the Brady ribbon in front to save for the parents. thank you again for everything, it was delicious. Good luck with your future baking!! D.

Dinosaur 3rd Birthday Cake

3rd Birthday Dinosaur Volcano Cake

This is the dinosaur volcano cake I created for my son's 3rd birthday party. This year he got 3 Simply Sweets creations - dinosaur cupcakes for school, construction themed cupcake cake for our family party and this cake for his big party.

The themed of the party was dinosaurs - you can read more about all the details on the Desert Parties Blog - Real Parties: 3rd Birthday Dinosaur Themed Celebration. I chose a volcano because my son loves volcanos first learning about them from Little Einstein's Hawaii episode and he thinks the mountains near our house are volcanos. The volcano part of the cake is double chocolate sourcream cake with chocolate buttercream. The base of the cake is white sourcream with strawberry mousse filling.

I also made chocolate dinosaur suckers for favors.

Here's his 1st and 2nd birthday cakes - both have become very popular with our Simply Sweets customes and we have repeated the designs multiple times!
