Fireman's Helmet

This custom fireman's helmet cake looks like the real thing, but trust us, it's cake!

Today's wedding cake features two different kinds of snowflakes: buttercream and pastillage.

The cake was frosted in our buttercream frosting, and our snowflake design was hand-piped onto the sides of the cake in buttercream. The cake was then finished with some pastillage snowflakes that had metallic gold accents.

We often create birthday cakes with Boston sports logos, since Boston sports are so popular here. But today's Featured Friday cake came out especially awesome!

Pink Ruffle Cascade

This display cake was inspired by an actual wedding cake that our chef created. With the pretty pink cascade, we thought it was appropriate with Valentine's Day coming up.

The tiers are square and slightly off-set. The cake features our champagne dot design in a pastel pink, and a pink rolled chocolate ruffle cascade.

Unraveling Ribbons

Ken & Andy were married recently and we were able to create their wedding cake for them!

Their cake was simply frosted in vanilla buttercream. The focus of the cake was the beautiful cascade of rolled chocolate roses, calla lilies and unraveling ribbons that were all hand-sculpted.
