Summertime Cupcake Towers

Hello again!  It’s been quite a while since I’ve gotten a chance to get over here to the blog … so as you might imagine, there are a LOT of cakes to update everyone on!  To start out here are a few of the cupcake towers we delivered last month.  I’ll be posting a bunch of wedding cakes soon!

This first cupcake tower was made for a Sex and the City themed bridal shower at the Marina Grand in Staten Island, NY.  The cupcakes were chai cake with cinnamon honey buttercream, devil’s food cake with vanilla buttercream & almond cake with chocolate buttercream.  The top cake was a vanilla cake, filled with raspberry preserves, frosted in vanilla buttercream and decorated in fondant.  This was the first time I was able to use Bella Cupcake Couture cupcake wraps as well, which I think fit into the theme perfectly!


This was my favorite view of the top cake city skyline 😀

This next cake & cupcake tower combo was made for a Christening at the Brick House in Wycoff, NJ.  The cupcakes were devil’s food & vanilla frosted in either chocolate or vanilla buttercream and red velvet frosted in cream cheese frosting.  The cake was all vanilla, filled & frosted in vanilla buttercream and decorated in fondant.


NY Sports 50th Birthday & Christening Cakes

Here’s a few shots of the latest Sweet Element cakes that were made for a dual christening & 50th birthday party at La Prete’s in Belleville, NJ this past Sunday.  The initial request for the first 50th birthday cake was to incorporate the NY Knicks, Giants & Yankees with a beach theme, which inspired the design below.  The cakes inside the basketball & football were made up of chocolate cake, filled with peanut butter mousse & frosted in chocolate buttercream, and the baseball was made of rice krispy treats frosted in chocolate buttercream.  All the balls were decorated in fondant.  To incorporate the beach theme, we decorated the board in one of my favorite things – cookie sand!

The christening cake was based off the invitation to the party & was made up of yellow cake, filled with whipped cream, peaches & strawberries and frosted in vanilla buttercream.  The decorative plate & polka dots on the side are all chocolate.
