Breathtaking Birthdays

Hello, everybody! These past few weeks have been filled with some amazing adventures in cakeland, so I hope you enjoy them!

As the title suggests, there were a lot of birthdays these past few weeks. Usually, there is, but there was a least more that stood out to me. Something I’d often cite in the past were these number cakes, or cakes that were carved out to look like the age which the person is turning. And in these past weekends, there were three! The first one I saw was a 30th birthday cake, showing a vibrant array of colors, which I just loved. Another one of these cakes was then for a 21st birthday. I thought the color scheme for this one was pretty as well; I think the peach and light green are a good mix. The last one of these ‘number cakes’ was technically for two kids for their 16th birthday, with the ‘One’ being designed for the one kid, and the ‘Six’ for the other! I hope you all had wonderful birthdays!

There were so many birthdays from these past weeks, I think I’ll have to split it up into two paragraphs just to mention a few! First off, there were two rocket or spaced themed birthday cakes that went out. The first one, a small, one-tier circle cake, was a simplistic one, but still pretty cute nevertheless, with a large rocket. The other with a rocket was also flying in space, with many stars and asteroids. There were also two doughnut-themed cakes! The first was a drip-cake one, that actually had the middle cut out of it to keep the doughnut shape! I also loved the pastel colors on this one. The other doughnut cake had actual doughnuts on it! It was a smaller cake, with a blue accent to it [and it featured the drip icing too!]. Another cake that was pretty cool featured a barbeque theme. It even had little hamburgers on the grill! One adorable cake was also a two-tier, designed like a cow! I loved the little pink and white swirls on the top.

From these birthdays, there were actually three different mermaid-themed cakes that I thought it’d be cool to mention. First, there was an interesting [in a good way, of course] mermaid cake, with the sides being a blue ombre, and a pink tail popping out of the top! Another one featured a much more prominent array of green and pink plants growing on the ocean flower, with two purple tails instead. Speaking of which, this final mermaid cake was completely purple and indigo, with purple and pink shells and swirls all around. It also showed two purple mermaid tails too.

Continuing on with the wonderful birthdays, one cake had a gracious pink theme to it. It was a one-tier, featuring different drinks and a high heel drawing on the top of it. There was also a 90th birthday cake from these past weeks! Although you can’t quite see it in the picture, it featured a beautiful array of purple flowers. Another cool cake was a two-tier, with the first being designed as a tractor tire, and the second showing a tractor design on it! One adorable cake was of Mickey Mouse, in a train! It also had this cute rainbow border around it. One cake I also saw was a wonderful woodpecker cake! I love birds, and this cake was so pretty! And what I believe is the last birthday cake of this blog post featured Mario and Luigi, high fiving each other. So, I hope you all had some amazing birthday celebrations!

And you cannot forget about cupcakes! There were also some neat cupcakes from the past two weekends as well. I actually thought this first one, a whiskey barrel, was a cake at first until I looked closer at it. These cupcake collages of sorts are pretty cool, where you take cupcakes and ice them all at once, creating one design. Another set of cupcakes had some great floral designs on them. They had a small, light grayish rose, and pink and purple flowers too. I loved these garden cupcakes as well. They had a crumb topping which representing soil and had little plants on them! Peter Rabbit was the theme. I think my favorite part of these though were the signs ‘showing’ the different veggies that could be grown in the garden, like radishes! I hope you all had great celebrations too!

Speaking of cupcakes, there was a selection of Easter ones from these past few weeks! It was Easter a few weeks ago, and there were a few easter-themed desserts that had gone out! This set of cupcakes featured a little bunny, with its paws and little cottontail visible. I thought these were so cute! Another Easter cake was a 1-tier, with a ‘nest’ of blue robin’s eggs on the top. I actually saw this morning a Robin making its nest near our house, so this is somewhat ironic! One other Easter cake I saw was one I see almost every year. It’s a one-tier, designed with a basket weave, with the candy eggs and icing flowers overflowing it. This is almost like a reminder of the Easter season for cakes, as I remember this design from when I was little. Although very, very late, I hope you all had wonderful Easter celebrations!

There were also some plain-out delightful cakes from these past few weeks. For one, there was an adorable cake to welcome a new baby to a family, with a little Winnie-the-Pooh! I grew up watching all of the different shorts of these characters, and this was just so nice. Another cake was very unique, which was seemingly ‘cut’ to show a rocky gemstone underneath. This was done with blue rock candy, and I loved the gold accent that went along with it.

Not this last weekend, but the weekend before, there was an event called Toast for TJ, to celebrate TJ’s life. We did cupcakes for this, and I am very happy that we were able to contribute to this celebration.

More recently, there was also Mother’s Day! One set of cupcakes that went out featured little hearts with the word ‘Mom’ on them, and pink and red sprinkles. And to all the moms out there, I hope you had a great Mother’s Day! And to my mom, I love you so much, and thank you for all that you do! With that, I hope you enjoyed this insight into our recent adventures in cakeland.

Final Days of Halloween

Hello, everyone! Once again, there was some great cakes that were created this weekend that I would love to talk about! I hope you enjoy them!

Now, most of the cakes this weekend were Halloween, but I want to make sure we mention the other ones first! And don’t worry, there will more focuses next week, and I am hoping that we will start on some of the Christmas themes soon! The music is already playing here. Anyways, there was two beautiful wedding cakes that were done this weekend. Both featured some colorful flowers. The first was a naked cake with many bright flowers, and the other showed off an autumn look. I don’t know which one I like better, I think they are both great! I hope you had wonderful celebrations!

There was also two different occasion cakes that I particularly liked. One of which was this tractor cake. I thought this one was simplistic, and I loved the icing flower accents on the edges. Another cake was one of a cheese plate [as I am told it is called]. I just thought the details on this cake were so intricate, and it looked old-fashioned. I hope you both had wonderful celebrations as well!

And now we have reached the amazing Halloween cakes. This theme, along with autumn ones as well, have been going out all month, and these were some great ones to sum this season up. The autumn ones may stick around for a bit longer, though! To start, there were some awesome cupcakes. The first was very festive, featuring bright colors of green and purple, mummies, and some jack-o’-lanterns. The other ones, though, were very witchy, with items such as broomsticks and witch’s hats. There was also this baby shower cake that was very spooky. This one featured a wolf howling, and a creepy design that resembled the old fence gates. And to sum it up, there was some birthday cakes that were adorable as well. The one was, well, a 1st birthday cake, saying “Spooky One”. I loved the color scheme of this one, and the little bats & ghosts! Speaking of these ghosts, I loved the little arms they had, looking as if they were ‘haunting’, and this was on the 2nd birthday cake as well! I loved the fence and tree on this orange-themed cake on top of the cute ghosts. So, other than that, those were the wonderful cakes we had on this Halloween weekend. I hope you enjoyed these adventures in cakeland!

Wonderful Colors of Fall

Hello, everyone! I am sorry I was not able to write a blog post last weekend, but this week, there are a ton of great cakes to talk about! There seems to be a large amount [not just because it’s been two weeks], so this should be a bit of a longer one! I hope you enjoy it!

This weekend, there were two pretty cool cupcakes that had to be mentioned. The first were these amazing Minecraft cupcakes. I liked these in particular, because of the unique faces that were featured. Another pretty neat cupcake was these bee cupcakes! And, I got to make the little bees on top, which was pretty fun! So, overall, so awesome cupcakes were made in these past two weeks. I hope you enjoyed them, and had a great celebration!

Speaking of Minecraft, along with those Minecraft cupcakes, there was also a Minecraft cake later in the week! This cake had three pretty cool tiers, featuring 3 different characters from the game: An Enderman, Ghast, and Creeper. There was also another pretty neat cake this week that, at first, I actually thought it was a birthday cake due to its amazing theme. This was a Harry Potter cake to welcome a baby! I thought the color scheme of this cake was beautiful. Another great birthday cake from this weekend though featured bowling. I loved the colors featured in this cake, and I don’t remember actually seeing a bowling cake in a long time. I hope you both had wonderful celebrations in these past weekends!

There were also some great cakes these past two weekends that featured some great color arrangements. Two of which, were actually almost identical. Both birthdays, these cakes featured an amazing kind of flower: Sunflowers. I just thought these were so pretty, and the petals were nicely detailed. Another great flower cake, a wedding, featured some amazing purple flowers, not light, but normal purple, which I do not see as often. As well, this cake had featured some dark greens and beautiful reds. Another wedding cake also featured these amazing dark greens, as well as some pastel roses and other flowers. I think my favorite though was a small, two-tier wedding cake. It didn’t feature these dark greens, but pastel pink roses, as well as some interesting golden ribbons that adding a lovely touch. And, once again, I hope you had a wonderful celebration!

And finally, to top it all off, we have some amazing fall cakes. Most of these cake pictures are from our picnic table, in which has been covered with pumpkins my dad found on sale about a week ago. Anyway, that sets a great background for these two fall-themed cakes that were done this weekend. The first, features a pumpkin! Yes, on the top of the cake, there is a pumpkin, with wonderful fall leaves on it. The second features these beautiful, dark flowers that just remind me of the autumn wreaths. These cakes just seem to fit perfectly with this season, and I hope that you both had wonderful celebrations!

So, in totality, these cakes brought together a great beginning [in a sense] to the fall season, which is a great time in these adventures in cakeland.

Purple Posies

Hello, everyone! These past two weeks, some great cakes were created, and some great memories were made. Although a short introduction, I hope you enjoy a lookback of these past few weeks!

While looking at these pictures, I noticed that a few of the cakes featured one common color: purple! I usually don’t see as many dominantly purple, or violet, cakes, so I thought this was pretty neat. This one purple cake featured a lot of this color. The top half of the cake featured a deep purple icing, and the bottom was in white. And, there was a little graduation hat! The next cake had a beautiful array of dark & light purple flowers, streaming down the side. I especially liked this one since it seemed to be so simple. These two cakes were actually from last weekend, but this last purple color was from this weekend. This was a wedding cake, with more of a light purple, featuring a fondant 2nd tier and white 1st & 3rd tier. The first two cakes were a graduation cake, and the other wedding cake, so I hope you had wonderful celebrations!

Speaking of more themes, trucks were also used a bit in these past two weeks. These two cakes were pretty cool. From last weekend, there was a neat green truck. For a birthday cake, this cake was small, but detailed, and picking up a little 2. As for this weekend, this one cake was to welcome a newborn. This two-tier featured an old-fashioned blue truck, with pumpkins all around the cake. There was even a little text, “Welcome Little Pumpkin”. I thought this cake was pretty adorable. I hope you also had wonderful celebrations!

As always, there were also some awesome animal cakes. In our most recent relations, we had another chicken! I just think this one is pretty cute. My favorite part of this cake is the gray accent on each of the feathers. These animal faces, as I like to call them, are becoming more popular recently. In the past two weeks, two of these were done: a unicorn pig (very creative!), and a fox, which I have not seen before. I hope you all had wonderful celebrations!

Although not related to Delectable Delights, my mom at her job at Penn State this week made the College GameDay cake for the WhiteOut game! I thought the little mascots on the top were pretty cute. 

And finally, we also had a wonderful celebration this weekend that we just had to celebrate: Elliot’s 7th birthday! Almost every time we look on his tablet, he is playing Christmas music (he absolutely loves it!), so my mom made a several-tiered Christmas tree cake for him! I think he liked it a lot. I hope he had a good birthday, we love you buddy!

Overall, some great memories were made in these past two weekends, from trucks to trees, that made for amazing adventures in cakeland for the record books.

Building Memories

Hello, everyone! These past two weekends, we did a good number of cakes, which I thought would be great to put together into one post to sum up the end of the summer, which, unlike the seasonal schedule, will be tomorrow for me. I hope you enjoy this!

From the prior weekend, there were still a few cakes that had to be mentioned. Or, more or less, cupcakes. From looking at the pictures from last weekend, there were a number of unique cupcakes done. The first was actually done earlier in the week, which was celebrating the 3-year anniversary of Good Day Cafe, which is a local coffee shop that employs people with special needs, featuring little green 3s! I am happy we were able to help celebrate this amazing cafe. Another one that was done were ombre-type seashells, featuring beautiful blue and purple hues with sprinkles on top. As for the other cupcakes, there was also little orange slices put on cupcakes as well, celebrating their new “cutie”! I thought this was very vibrant, and I thought it was a unique change from the typical peanut butter cups or raspberries (those are still great though!) I hope you all had wonderful celebrations last weekend!

As for this weekend, some great and unique cakes were created as well. One thing I particularly noticed was the number of fondant-based cakes that were done this weekend, 3 actually. One of which (or two, really), was featuring the Bluey characters from the Disney Junior show, which Alex absolutely loves. I’m pretty sure he loved these cakes as much as I did! Another fondant-based cake was actually a three-tier (which is not seen too much, with fondant at least), featuring a farming theme. This cake’s first layer showed a tire, and the third was based on a haybale, with a tractor on top! I just thought this cake was so cute. The final fondant cake was pretty unique as well. It was, in fact, one of those large number-sized cakes, but what made this great was that it featured different marvel characters, 5 in fact, on different parts of the 5. I don’t know too much about the Marvel movies, but I do like the movies that I have watched, but this was pretty neat. These were all birthdays, so I hope you all had a wonderful birthday celebration!

One wedding cake was done this weekend that I thought was completely different and unique. This wedding cake was definitely full of color, with its base color being a bright blue instead of a simple white. It then featured gold ribbon and designs, with very colorful flowers all over the cake. I hope you had a wonderful wedding celebration!

I think one cake though is one of my favorites of all time: a lego wedding cake! This cake is very unique, and was built, in a sense, perfectly! Lego bakers and builders are “creating” this little cake, which is seemingly built out of legos (or in this case, fondant). And then, on the top, there is a lego-built wedding cake topper, which even has its own wedding cake too! I hope you also had a wonderful wedding celebration!

Although there weren’t as many cakes as usual, there were many intricate and detailed ones that helped finish out a wonderful summer of adventures in cakeland.
