Baptism Cupcake Tower

Blue Baptism Cupcake Tower

We created this cupcake tower for a baptism - the family was having all 3 children baptised and we put their initials on half the cupcakes and a simple white cross on the other half of the cupcakes. The topper cake was done in two shades of blue with a diamond pattern accented with pearls. They also rented our 4 tier cupcake tower stand - the past few weeks we have been booking more orders for cupcake towers than cakes! Its becoming so popular - it creates such a great display and easy to serve. We currently have 2 three tier towers, 3 four tier towers and 2 five tier towers available for rent but make sure to reserve these several weeks in advance of your party (at least!).

We made this pink and green two tier cake topped with a multicolored bow for a baby shower - bottom tier in a white and pink zebra print and top tier with pink and green polka dots, so fun!

We also made chocolate dipped fortune cookies with pink sprinkles, pink tags and green bows.

Two Tier Package Cake for a 40th Birthday Surprise Party

40th birthday two tier package cake black white and silver

We created this cake for a 40th birthday surprise party. Our package cake design always works great for any celebration and the two tier is a great way to incorporate more servings and create a more dramatic centerpiece. This party was held at their community club house and all the decorations were done in black and silver. We've done several cakes for this family's son and it was exciting to now create one for the parents.

Another family member who flew in for the party was also celebrating a party so a seperate special cake for ordered - pink and black zebra! always a hit.
