Coffee Cake, Anyone?

    Hello, everyone! This week, many different cakes were shown. Particularly, though, there were many birthday cakes. For this week’s selection, here are my personal top three, and, a small adventure related, in a way, to one of these amazing cakes. 

    For this week, one small cake that I liked was a 16th birthday cake. Usually, a lot of the 16th birthday cakes that I see are for sweet 16s and such. But this one was a bit different. This cake was driving-themed, with a simple road sign, and a streetlight. I thought this was a pretty cool cake, and simple as well. I hope you had a good birthday!

    Usually once or twice a month, these large birthday cakes are done, which still amaze me everytime. This time, it was an 80th birthday cake. The best part about these cakes though, are that they are shaped like numbers. This cake was beautiful, with blue and yellow flowers, and green banners. I thought this cake was peaceful and pretty good for these different and unique cakes. Another thing that was great about this celebration, was that it was for two.

Another cake was done for the man’s daughter, who was turning 50. This cake was a bit simpler, with purple and chocolate icing, but still beautiful. Well, I hope you both had an amazing birthday celebration!

    The final cake is one that I really liked [and my mom pointed out to me several times due to this] was a Starbucks cake. Usually, on the occasions that I go on deliveries with my mom, we usually end up going to Starbucks, which I love. I usually just get a Chocolate Chip Frappuccino, and this cake was pretty neat for me. It had the Starbucks color scheme, and then a Starbucks drink on the top, 3D. Overall, I thought it was pretty cool, and it was a birthday cake as well, so, I hope you had an amazing birthday!

    Well, I hope you enjoyed this little insight from this week, of our small adventures in cakeland. 

Checking Out Cookies

   Well, welcome to my new blog, The Adventures in Cakeland! We have been trying to get this set up for sooo long, and we have finally did it!

   This week, my mom got to go down to the Centre Hall Library for these Out of this World cookies! We got to make the cookies, and then the kids got to come and decorate them! I love the library, so when I got this chance to go there, I was THRILLED! We got to help all the kids with cookies, and I was able to find books to read as well! This was just one of the many Adventures in Cakeland.

The Cake Lady’s Daughter

Hi! I’m Isabella Luse, or, ‘The Cake Lady’s Daughter’. I live in the world of cake, cupcakes and sweet treats with my crazy family. With going into 7th grade this year that just adds on to my crazy life.

Guided by old-fashioned baking wisdom, she takes the science of baking and combines it with the artistry of decorating and brings it all together to coordinate and beautifully compliment your wedding, party or event theme!

Delectable Delights by Heather is a family business. Everyone pitches in wherever they are needed.  A small business…
Life is complicated enough, we’re not about to make the business complicated, too. Our small business approach keeps everything on a one-to-one basis, whether by phone or by email. And we don’t “overbook.”

We don’t have “office hours” nor do we have a showroom so “just walking in” is not a good idea. Our home business is a business, oddly enough, based in our home. In order to keep home life and business separate, we prefer to set up meetings with clients at a time that is convenient for you and for us so we can relax and concentrate on the cake at hand. This is especially true for wedding cakes. A sit-down discussion is necessary for a wedding cake, but not so much for Uncle Charlie’s birthday cake.  So plan accordingly.
