Things are getting pretty busy, which is good! and bad too. Catching up on sleep has become a new priority. Plus I have been battling a cold for almost 2 weeks now. Yuck!

Anyway, wanted to post pics of a cake I just did for a birthday. A customer of Bliss loves my red velvet cupcakes so her husband came in and ordered her a red velvet cake for her birthday. I’ve been getting more and more requests for red velvet cakes. I think it’s because most grocery stores don’t do red velvet.

Queen of Hearts cake for birthday

Making cakes look professional is A LOT of work! Getting the icing smooth, piping decorations. Piping words!! OMG that is probably the most stressful part. I decorated with cake with fondant pink daisies and fondant purple butterflies. And I piped pink dots along the bottom border. It is a quarter sheet cake. I definitely prefer cupcakes.

For this weekend, I have a big order of mini cupcakes for a 80’s themed birthday party on Saturday in Santa Monica. I am going to decorate some of the cupcakes with custom work. The other cupcakes will be regularly decorated and decorated with some cool toppers I bought. Cabbage Patch Kids, My Little Pony, boom boxes, records, Pepsi cans, Care Bears, record players and more. I want to make the frostings and decorations very bright. I also found neon sign picks and I am going to write 80s words on them like – Totally, Rad, Gag Me With a Spoon… that’s all I can think of now. Do you have any suggestions for others?

Like, I’m totally spazzing!

  2. I hate piping words too! I have also been getting increasingly busy which is great but people always want full cakes which I find quite stressful.

    Give me a cupcake any day. Your cake is lovely!
