No Cupcake Left Behind

Linar came to me with a vision: a cupcake “gift” for each of her guests! Some of the biggest fears I hear from clients is that their creation will go unnoticed or uneaten. The two things I recommend doing to avoid these tragedies are perfectly represented here: 1)  display the creation in a prominent place, and 2) leave […]

Joshua’s World

I’ve been busy these past two months working on some exciting magazine photo shoots; unfortunately, these cakes are top secret for now – and until they’re published in print! But here’s one I can definitely share with you – a cake that made me smile from ear to ear. Joshua is one lucky boy! Every […]

Say it with Cupcakes

This year, all of my corporate clients came up with very creative ways to communicate their message with cupcakes – for employee celebrations, marketing campaigns, or in this case, for the holidays. This client asked me to transfer their red logo to sugar cookies, which I placed atop some vanilla-chocolate cupcakes. The very festive boxes […]

Aristo’s Madagascar Cake

It’s been a busy week, but I just had to take a second here to post some photos of Aristo’s Madagascar-inspired cake. His awesome mom, Cary, told me that her son had just seen the Madagascar sequel and was a huge fan of the movie. So we came up with the idea of a cake […]

Frangipani Cupcakes

Frangipanis are such a perfect, Hawaiian flower. I made these ones out of sugar paste for a client’s house warming celebration. So pretty!

Snowflake Cupcakes

I love making individually-boxed cupcakes. I was asked to make these ones for a chic winter gala. A hundred of these boxes were arranged into a gorgeous pyramid at the venue, and each guest got to take one home at the end of the evening.

Spiral Cupcake Tree

I found this spiral cupcake tree last while shopping for new cupcake stands. It holds 12 cupcakes and I can just picture it as a wedding table centerpiece. I had to purchase one to see what it looked like with cupcakes, since it was used as a display for fruit in the showroom. What can […]

Joan’s Wedding Cupcakes

For wedding cupcakes, I especially love the look of “bulbed” buttercream. Buttercream swirls are great… but I just find the bulbs so elegant. They also really make the delicate decorations *pop*. Cupcakes are definitely here to stay… And these very modern cupcakes prove it! :) Roxy, I was delighted with the cupcakes you made for […]

Life imitates art…

I sorted through pictures of this week’s orders and I came upon this one — I really liked these cupcakes, but what caught my eye was the reflection of trees on the cellophane of my packaging. What a neat effect! The green of the trees is so similar to the green hue I used to […]

Know What I Mean?

Like many French-Canadians, I’m always expressing myself with my hands. Many people are visual and love to see ideas grow before their eyes, and so am I.That’s what inspired me to put together this box of sample cupcake decorations. I meet with clients and get ideas, pull out the box and start building cupcakes right […]

For the love of dogs…

My friend Rick loves dogs — he’s made a career of it with Tailwags, his doggy daycare facility at Eglinton & Spadina. I had some free time today, so I decided to make him some special doggy cupcakes. I made these little dogs out of gum paste and placed them on top of cupcakes piped […]

Golf, anyone?

A client of mine was celebrating the birthdays of two boys and their grandfather and ordered some custom cupcakes. Since these cupcakes were for boys, I wanted a concept that was a little more masculine, that would appeal to both young boys and their grandpa. When I found out they’re all big fans of golf, […]

On the schedule this week were some very fancy treats for a green-themed baby shower. This special client wanted a fun and delicious treat to give away to her shower guests. These baby jumpers were perfect! Also on the menu were some vanilla cupcakes with swiss-meringue buttercream and a medley of white flowers with green […]
