I made a smaller cake for my daughters friends birthday a couple weeks ago. Nothing to fancy just a little fun. Her present was an actual iCarly Figurine that we incorporated into the Birthday Cake. The iCarly Colors are Purple, Blue, Pink, and a hint of yellow! So we created just that! We added little twists of color to the top of the cake. Sprinkled little Marshmallow Fondant dots all over to give it the little hint of yellow. Then accented the cake with a couple of cupcakes to sit around for added iCarly party decorations!
Here is a clip of the theme song from the show!
Vintage Circus themed Birthday Cake for a first birthday party. There is a small Baby’s Cake for the one year old to dig into and will also be used as the centerpiece for the Vintage Circus Birthday Party. The guests will each get one of the 4 dozen red velvet Cupcakes made to coordinate with the Vintage Circus theme! I will be posting pictures from the actual Birthday Party once the mother sends them to me, and I can’t wait to see how cute they looked decorated with her hand made vintage cupcake holders and little cupcake picks with a Vintage Circus Image at the top.
The Pictures below show the Elephant up close and the Invitaion that was sent to me to pull ideas from for the actual design of the cake. Charity is a previous customer who is great to work with! She gives me a round about idea of what she is looking for. In this case a smaller cake for her son and to be used as the centerpiece, 4 dozen red velvet cupcakes with an off white colored icing to give it that extra Vintage appeal, and the invites she sent out! The rest was left for me to create. The Elephant on top of the cake is my favorite! He looks sooo cute and was really fun to make. Another cake reminding me of why I love what I do!! You can see Charity’s previous comment about her experience with Bear Heart Baking Company here. It is the 8th Comment, the one with the pink and green polka dots!
Just thought I would share a Vintage Circus clip, LOL!! Dumbo sure is a classic image of a Vintage Circus. While it isn’t 100% Vintage this next Disney show featuring Dumbo sure is an older clip! How many of you even forgot about this show? I know I sure did until now! I hope you enjoy!
This may look like an ordinary Cake but it is what’s inside that truly matters! This is no ordinary Cake, the Traditional White Cake is dyed either Blue or Pink?? Which one is it you ask…..take a guess and we will reveal the answer shortly! What is a Gender Revealing Party? What is a Gender Revealing Cake??
A Gender Revealing Party is when a group of close family and friends come together to find out the sex of the expecting couples baby. There are many ways to do this. At Bear Heart Baking Company we were recently approached with the idea of making a cake to reveal the gender for couple who was expecting there first baby! How did we do this?? We dyed the inside of their Cake Blue or Pink depending on the sex of the baby! When all of there family and friends are standing around the couple cuts into the cake to reveal the Gender of the baby. Best part is dessert is on the table as well!
We will be posting what the sex of the baby was but first would love to hear some guesses at what you think the sex of the baby might be??
I think when you start a cake you never really know what to expect, sometimes things go wrong, and sometimes they are exactly what you envisioned. This particular 3 tier Cupcake Cake was beyond my expectations! When the Cupcake Cake Idea was first drawn out for Harlow’s Mother I thought it looked really cute. Making the Cake after the first 2 tiers I still was satisfied and thought it was coming together nicely. Then came the construction of the Cupcake. The Cupcake was by far my favorite part of the whole entire cake! The bright colors pulled all the tiers together and made the Cupcake Cake so fun! Perfect for a little Girl’s 1st Birthday Party! When I stacked all 3 tiers together I was amazed, the cupcake was bigger than I was thinking which was an added bonus. The bright colors on each tier looked great and seemed to flow through the whole cake. I can’t wait to make another one The perfect Cake for a First Birthday Party!
We don’t usually do plain buttercream cakes but this Godzilla Birthday Cake was for a friend of my son’s from Karate class. I thought the idea of Godzilla for a 6 year old was so unique!! I didn’t even know Godzilla was still around. I loved making each building and smashing the cars into it. This Godzilla Birthday Cake was the Ultimate Boys’s Birthday Cake. When I delivered it I asked the Birthday Boy if this cake was messy enough for him. With a huge smile on his face he said “YEEESSS” Shaking his head up and down. Priceless!!
The Mechagodzilla action figure was provided by his mother as were the cars. The Mechagodzilla action figure was a toy he had been wanting for awhile so he was extra excited when he realized that there was a Mechagodzilla on the Birthday Cake. It was so fun making this Birthday Cake and then being able to see his reaction was so Priceless! It really made me love doing do this all the more.
We recently made a Birthday Cake for a student attending York College of Pennsylvania! Her mother called our bakery and wanted to do something for her daughter who was away at York College. Since she wasn’t close enough to bake a cake for her she trusted our bakery to make a custom birthday cake for her daughter. She requested Hot Pink Fondant on the Birthday Cake. Also that a Boston Terrier, since they owned a Boston Terrier, be put on the Birthday Cake. She needed it delivered to York College of Pennsylvania on March 12 at 1:00 p.m.
We are so happy that Connie found us on the web and that we were able to share in her daughter’s Birthday Cake Surprise! We were even more thrilled when we sent her an e-mail asking about her experience and she sent us this wonderful comment!
“Bear Heart Baking delivered a beautiful, custom made birthday cake to my daughter at York College. We wanted to include our family dog on the cake, and Amy called for a picture so she could mold it to look just like our pet. The delivery was timely and the cake was unique and beautiful in addition to being delicious. We will definitely call Bear Heart again. Thanks, Amy”
We made a Jungle themed Birthday Cake for a 1st Birthday Party today. The two tier birthday cake was chocolate and yellow cake with buttercream icing. The cupcakes were a mixture of yellow and chocolate cake with Buttercream icing as well. The grass detailing going around the cake was made with Buttercream icing using a special tip. I think it looks very Jungle like with all the different lengths. The animals hiding behind bushes is the look we were going for with each tier. We wanted to create the feel of all the animals sort of peeking out of the bushes like a curious one year old would do!
The zebra print on the cupcakes with the letters B E N was a last minute detail we thought of. His mother pretty much left the whole design up to us and we hope we hit her vision dead on!
Bear Heart Baking Company made a Red Velvet Cake with Cream Cheese Icing for a first Birthday Party with a Mod Monkey theme in, February 2010, this year. The cake was covered in Marshmallow Fondant and then decorated with Brown Marshmallow Fondant for the Mod Monkey’s face. The Yellow and Blue Polka Dots were made using Marshmallow Fondant as well. The Cupcakes were White Cake with Black Raspberry Filling and Yellow and Blue Buttercream topping. The alternating colors of polka dots accented the tops giving these cupcakes a modern feel. We love how both the Mod Monkey Cake and Cupcakes turned out!
We received great feedback on this cake and don’t like to brag….but….our Red Velvet cake is super moist and delicious!! Check out the Comment Kristy left about her Mod Monkey Cake here at the post Bear Heart Baking Company Feedback.

This Welcome to the Nest Baby Shower Cake was so much fun to make! The nest with the Robin Eggs which are (Mini Easter Whoppers) was made out of modeling chocolate, a first for us at Bear Heart Baking Company! The tree branch was also made out of modeling chocolate as well. The flowers were marshmallow fondant painted pink at the tips for the baby girl! The cake itself was an almond flavored white cake with a black raspberry filling and cream cheese icing with a hint of almond flavoring. We wrote “Welcome to the Nest” on the cake in pink of course!
The cupcakes…..Oh the Cupcakes!! The Cupcakes were our amazingly moist carrot cake with chunks of glazed pecans and plump moist raisins mixed throughout. We added a cream cheese icing that is to die for and sprinkled toasted coconut over the tops of the cake! In house toasted coconut which was another first for Bear Heart Baking Company. The little birds were made using our marshmallow fondant, pink because It’s a Girl, and then little yellow icing beaks were added and little eyes dotted on with black edible marker.
