First Birthday Cakes – Fun to Eat and Fun to Smash…

There is something special about a child’s first birthday – it’s a fun celebration of all of the little milestones that children make in that first year of life – they go from a tiny little miracle to a little person who smiles, coos, sits up, crawls, walks and even for many – talk! All in one single year!  While these little ones often don’t remember their first birthday – their parents and families do!  This is why I take special pride when creating a first birthday cake – and offer a free smash cupcake or cake with each first birthday cake order.  This birthday is all about making the memories for years to come.  Here are a few of the first birthday cakes, and moments I’ve been able to create over the past few months.

When looking for that special first birthday cake in Grand Cayman – look no further than Cayke!

No Birthday Is Complete Without Cake!

Children’s birthday cakes are always fun and are a staple at almost every birthday party but what about when you leave those kiddie years behind you?  I find so many adults neglect their own birthday cake fantasies – sometimes it’s due to being so busy, sometimes people assume that one doesn’t want a cake for their birthday – whatever the reason one should ALWAYS have a lovely slice of cake to enjoy for their birthday festivities.  Here are a few of my favourite adult birthday cakes that I’ve created this year…take a look and be inspired to give a friend, loved one or even yourself a spectacular birthday cake in both looks and taste!

A Chicago Bulls themed quarter sheet cake with all buttercream decor

A simple, yet elegant two tier square shaped birthday. 6″ square on an 8″ square with fondant icing and decor.

A whimsical two tier square shaped birthday cake. 6″ square on a 10″ square. All fondant icing and decor.

A fun, and bright zebra gift box cake. 6″ square with buttercream icing and fondant accents. Accompanied with colourful, coordinating cupcakes.

A modern take on a traditional birthday cake! 8″ round with buttercream icing and buttercream/fondant decor.

A two tier gift box cake. 6″ square on 8″ square.  Buttercream icing and fondant accents.

A two tier heart shaped cake decorated very traditionally.  9″ heart on a 12″ heart with buttercream basketweave technique, buttercream decor and a few fondant flowers. The perfect way to show someone how much you love them on their birthday!

 

A fun way to celebrate the individuality of the birthday lady/man!  This was an 15″x22″ sheet cake with a 3D car cake on top.  Done for a woman who LOVES driving her car, and listening to music while driving.

A quarter sheet cake decorated to look like a coach purse.  Buttercream icing, buttercream decor with few fondant accents.

Don’t delay – celebrate your next birthday the “Cayke” way!

The Stork Has Visited & Gender Reveal!

It’s been such a long time since I’ve posted and I’m sorry for neglecting all of my lovely readers!  The reason I’ve been so off from my postings is that the Stork has paid me and my husband a visit and we’re expecting our first little “cupcake” at the end of the year :D.

Needless to say, that this new addition has resulted in me cutting my time down in the kitchen significantly.  But it also gave me the opportunity to do something that I’ve wanted to do for MONTHS and do a gender reveal cake! 

Gender Reveal cakes are a fun way for the parents-to-be, extended family and friends to find out what gender the baby (or babies) are! Traditionally, the ultrasound results are delivered to the baker, who will bake a pink or blue cake and ice it in a very gender neutral way.  The only way to find out what gender baby is – is to slice the cake!  It’s a fun surprise for everyone involved.  I was a little unconventional because I was my own baker.  So my husband and I knew the results but we waited for a few days and announced the big reveal at a family gathering. 

It was so much fun to experience all of the Old Wives Tales, having people feel the baby bump, inspect the shape, ask about cravings and other pregnancy things to figure out if they could accurately guess what gender this baby is!

I LOVE Bee themed baby shower ideas and thought it would be fun to do a bee themed gender reveal cake.  This is the cake I made:

And “Babee” is a…..

GIRL!!!

This was such a fun experience, I really hope that this trend picks up on island so I can do many more of these fun cakes!
