Hi everyone, it's time for Bon Gâteau to take a little break from all the baking. The last 3 months had been quite busy and my oven needs a rest. I'll be away July 24 to Aug 2. You're still more than welcome to email me and I'll get back to you as soon as I'm back in town. See y'all in a week! Have a great summer!

Again, mother of the birthday girl didn't want to have any fondant. So I tried to ice the dress to mimic how tulle will look and added sparkles to it by flicking my brush. Can you see the bling?
Mother of the birthday girl didn't want to have to "cut" any cakes at the party so she went with 5 dozen mini's instead. The cupcake tower was made to match the color theme of the cupcakes. However, she did have a request to have 1 regular sized cupcake on the top tier for the birthday girl to blow out her candle.
Customer didn't want to have the cake covered in fondant, only buttercream. But I suggested to have just a little so I can put on some cute cute expressions for the birthday girl. Both mom and daughter were sooo happy with the result.
The time and date on the screen is the actual birthdate and birth time for the birthday girl. Her parents just gave her an iTouch as her Grade 7 graduation present and apparently she's on it 24/7. So mom decided to order an iTouch cake for her!
I had the opportunity to make 2 cakes for a double birthday party for 2 2-year-olds. A Waybuloo and a Ni Hao Kai Lan cake. It's amazing how time just flew right by. I made baby Izzy's 1 year old birthday cake last year and it felt like it was just yesterday! She had a Winnie the Pooh Honey Pot Cake last time and this time she wanted a Kai Lan cake. Just Kai Lan, no one else. When I heard I was to make a Waybuloo cake, I had no idea who Waybuloo were! I had to google!
