Doug, the owner of Home Market Foods right here in Norwood, turned 50 recently. Since Home Market Foods is known for their meatballs, we were asked to create a spaghetti and meatball birthday cake for him!

The cake is covered with a red and white checkered table cloth made out of rolled chocolate. And the spaghetti and meatballs? Made out of chocolate too!

Brownie Delight

For Tasty Tuesday today, we're featuring another fairly new item to our retail store, the Brownie Delight. If just one of our super moist, chocolaty brownies isn't enough for you, then this is the dessert you want to try!

Queen of Hearts

Last weekend, we created a custom Queen of Hearts cake for an extravagant Alice in Wonderland birthday party!

Here she is, a work in progress, before her hair was added.
You can see that her skirt itself was the actual cake.

Here, Amy is pinning up her hair, as she is almost complete.
If you look closely at the gold part of her skirt, you can
see the imprinted pattern we added to the rolled chocolate,
to add texture to the skirt and make it look more luxurious.

Notice the ribbing and tiny hearts on her corset.
Her crown, face and torso were hand sculpted out of rolled chocolate.

And here she is complete, on display at the birthday party!
All the gold you see is hand painted and the applique
hearts on her skirt were individually cut and added by hand.

Purple Bow & Brooch

Katelyn & John got married this month. Congratulations to the two of you! When they originally came to us, they had a magazine picture of a cake that they were in LOVE with. Unfortunately, this cake that they loved was out of their budget. We worked closely with them, made a few minor adjustments, and were able to give them the cake they loved within their budget.

Katelyn and John's dream cake was covered in a rolled chocolate cover, had custom rolled chocolate floral applique spiraling around the cake, and was finished with a satin bow and a sparkly, pearl brooch!

Marcia and John had a tropical destination wedding in Mexico. So when they came back and had a reception for their family and friends who couldn't make it to the wedding, they wanted their cake to reflect their Mexican wedding ceremony.

The tropical pink and orange colored rolled chocolate bands brought a pop of color, and the hand-made, his and her, chocolate sombreros sat on top finishing the cake! Marcia and John received our complimentary, signature Honeymoon Cake, of course, as well, with matching bands and miniature sombreros on top to save for their first anniversary.

Marcia was so happy with her cake that she sent us this kind email:
Sara & Beth:
My cake was fabulous!!! Thank you so much. It was beautiful, tasty, and exactly what I wanted. Thank you thank you thank you!
My guests loved the cake so much. I will recommend you to EVERYONE I know!
Warmest Wishes,
- Marcia
You're more than welcome, Marcia! We wish you and John nothing but the best in your married life together!
