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.
