Disney Cars Cake Lightning McQueen and Mater Route 66

Disney Cars Cake Lightning McQueen and Mater

This cake was made with the Disney Cars theme in mind.  We made the sides of the cake look like a scene from the movie and Korbin’s mother provided the Lightning McQueen and Mater cars for on top.  The cake was a yellow cake with buttercream icing.  The decorations were all made out of marshmallow fondant.  We actually marbled the blue fondant with white making it look like clouds whisping through the sky.  This was a first for us and it was really fun!  I think we will be marblizing fondant a little more when appropriate  🙂

Notre Dame Fan Birthday Cake!

We made this cake yesterday for a husband’s birthday.  He went to Notre Dame and is obviously still a huge fan  🙂  She found us on the internet and gave us a call requesting a smaller cake with fondant for his Birthday.   We joked around about not being able to make the cake because we are Penn State Fans.  We both got a laugh out of that.  The cake pick up went well and we hope they loved the cake!!

Cookie Monster and Elmo Birthday Cake!

Elmo and Cookie Monster Cake!

This Elmo and Cookie Monster inspired Birthday Cake was a combination of the two characters!  The big Cookie Tier being the best part of course.  The Elmo and Cookie Monster Characters were hand molded out of marshmallow fondant and the  placed on the top of the cookie tier.  The blocks have a 2 and a “B” for Bryce.  It was a 2nd birthday party and the decorations complimented the cake so well!  I heard the peanut butter icing was a huge hit!  A square bottom tier and round top tier was also something new for us.  I think it turned out great!  Perfect Elmo and Cookie Monster Cake for a 2 Year old’s Birthday Party! 

If you take notice poor Elmo is clinging to his Cookie.  Cookie Monster is gobbling two cookies!  Something he does best!

Dr. Seuss Birthday Cake Cat in the Hat

Finished Dr. Seuss Cake!

We don’t usually post a step by step how to instruction post on making cakes but this one was just too fun!  We figured we would share how we made it for anyone who was curious about how or even someone adventurous enough to attempt it themselves.  The Cat in the Hat and One Fish, Two fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish are right up there with some of my favorite Dr. Seuss Books Ever.  Next to Hop on Pop, of course!  So you can imagine how extremely excited I was when I got the call for a 1st Birthday Cake with a Dr. Seuss theme! 

I am going to break the construction down into steps.  Maybe leaving out some things so if there are any questions at all feel free to ask! 

Step One:

Dr. Seuss Cake Step By Step instructions *Step 1*

Dr. Seuss Cake Step By Step instructions *Step 1*

I have already attached the Dowel Rod to the board with a screw, placed the 8″ square Chocolate double layer cake on the board lowering it down onto the dowel rod first.  (Be very careful to center it exact, you won’t be able to move it around once it is on the board and through the dowel rod.)  The buttercream was then placed around the cake and down the sides to prepare it for the fondant.  I rolled out an aqua blue marshmallow fondant that was made in advance.  I centered it over the dowel rod, pushed it through the center and lowered it onto the cake

Step 2:

Next I took my Pampered Chef Pizza Cutter ( I love this thing, especially for cutting my fondant) and cut along the edge of the cake to remove the excess fondant.  I did this to each side. 

Step 3:

Dr. Seuss Cake Step By Step Instructions *Step 3*

Dr. Seuss Cake Step By Step Instructions *Step 3*

In this step it is very important to get a nice clean cut that you use sharp scissors and cut very straight.  I like to pinch the fondant as close to the cake as I can.  Be careful not to pinch too far or icing will get between the layers causing your cut to ooze icing.  If this happens take a little water on your finger tip and run it down the cut to smooth the icing away and help seal the fondant.

Step 4:

For this step I rolled out White Marshmallow Fondant that was made ahead of time.  I used an 8″ circle board to cut out the white circle which will be the brim of my “Cat in The Hat” Hat!  I centered it and slide it down the dowel rod, laying it flat on the cake.

Step 5:

This next step is very impotant if skipped, you will crush the cake.  You will need to insert 4 dowel rods around the center.  This gives the support to the top cake so it doesn’t crush your bottom cake.  Ooozing Icing everywhere.  Place the dowel rods in 4 positions and make sure to cut them all even or one end of your cake will stick up higher than the others making it look like it is leaning. 

Step 6:

Dr. Seuss Cake Step By Step Instructions *Step 6*

Dr. Seuss Cake Step By Step Instructions *Step 6*

This step was the trickiest and took the most thought and planning for me.  I cut the center out of two 6″ round boards, just big enough for the dowel rod to fit through.  I took one round board and stacked my double layer 6″ yellow cakes with the icing already in the middle onto the dowel rod.  (this step was only to have the hole there)  I then removed the cake and sat it on my turn table.  I put a layer of icing down and placed the next board on top. 

I stuck the cake back on the dowel rod.  I them placed a 7″ round cake slightly off centered so more of the cake was sticking off of the edge but flush with the cakes underneath on the opposite side.  Iced the middle and stacked another 7″ round on top.  I removed the 4 stacked yellow cake rounds and placed them on the turntable, (You will then have to carve the cake for it to take the shape of the “Cat in the Hat” Hat) and iced the sides and top in preperation for the fondant! 

Step 7:

Roll out the white fondant and cover the cake.  Put the cake onto the dowel rod so it is sitting on top of the square!  Now it is time to decorate!  I used Red fondant to accent the hat and an edible black marker to add the detail to the stripes on the hat.  I free handed a One Fish on white fondant and then cut it out and stuck it on the side of the bottom tier.  Rolled the lettering for “One Fish” because the little boy was turning one.  Then cut out “Ben” for the top of the hat.   The Cutest First Birthday Cake!

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

The iCarly cake was Chocolate Cake with Chocolate Icing!  Every little girls favorite!  For more iCarly Birthday Party ideas check out this site http://www.birthday-parties-for-kids.com/?p=124

Vintage Circus

Vintage Circus Birthday Cake

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!

Cupcake Cake for a 1st Birthday Party

3 tier Cupcake Cake

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!

Godzilla Cake Mecha Godzilla

Godzilla Cake

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.

Boston Terrier Birthday Cake York College Delivery

Boston Terrier Birthday Cake Delivery to York College in PA

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”

Jungle 1st Birthday Cake

Jungle themed 1st Birthday Cake

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!
