Vegas bound - Cake Camp 2011

Simply Sweets Cake Studio is closed this week so that we can attend Cake Camp in Las Vegas, NV. The California Cake Camp hosts a 'cake camp' every two years - several days of classes from top instructors from around the world plus an awesome vendor area with the latest cake toys. This is my 4th year attending and looking forward to enjoying the Green Valley Ranch Resort and Spa which is hosting this year's Cake Camp.

I'll be posting photos and updates of my classes on the Simply Sweets Facebook page along with some tweets. Updates on the rest of the trip I will be sharing on my personal blog, Sweet Shoppe Mom, Sweet Shoppe Mom facebook page and twitter account.

2009's Cake Camp blog wrap up

Simply Sweets Cake Studio will reopen Tuesday July 19th.

6th Birthday Cake for a Lego themed celebration {Children's Birthday Cakes}

building blocks cake for a Lego themed birthday party

We created this brightly colored toy building blocks cake for a Lego themed birthday party The blocks are made from fondant - we arranged some on top in the shape of a 6 and more on the cake board. This photo was taken after our customer added some of their Lego figures. When my son saw this photo he decided he wants the same cake for his 6th birthday but he wants to put his Ninjago figures on it.

Blue and Green Baby Shower Cupcake Tower with a From and Dragonfly {Baby Shower Cakes}

Blue and Green Baby Shower Cupcake Tower with Frog and Dragonfly

This cupcake tower was designed to coordinate with the nursery bedding which was blues and greens with frogs and dragonflies. Our customer loved our monkey baby shower cupcake tower so we changed the colors to coordinate and replaced the monkey with a frog and dragonfly. The topper cake is topped with fondant baby shoes and our customer displayed the cake and 20 sassy circle cupcakes on our 3 tier cupcake tower stand.
