Cookies as favors, anyone?

Aside from cakes, cake pops, and cupcakes, we love to make cookies. Cookies, just like cake pops, are versatile. They can be your favors, too. Whatever the occasion may be, we can make them to fit the theme.

We recently created several cookies for favors. Some are for weddings, tea parties, Christening, and baby showers. 

Check out our Cookies page for more choices.

Betty Boop Fondant Cake - Claire's 5th Month Cake - 02/18/12

In the month  of February, we made a cake for our littlest family member Claire. Once again, Claire's mom found the character and sent us photos for inspiration. We put our own twist to create a version that's unique. Since it's the love month and we're donating proceeds to American Heart Association this month, it is but fitting to make a cake that celebrates love. This cake is a double layered cookies and cream cake with cream cheese filling. All decorations are edible, including Bettty Boop.

Betty Boop is a beloved character that doesn't age. She's lovable and sexy. Portraying her in a fondant for baby Claire's 5th month cake is such a delight. There aren't many tutorial on making her figure, so we have decided to make our own. Please check our Tutorials page for the link on how we made this lovable character.

We made Betty Boop in a combination of gumpaste and fondant. We used fondant for the hair and dress. The cake has a checkerboard pattern with hearts wired to serve as backdrop for Betty Boop.

Time Flies When You're Having Fun!

Hi everyone, Jessica here. It's been a while since we posted a blog. It has been a very busy February...and, so far...March is turning out to be our busiest month ever.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your support. You don't know how happy you have made me. I think we are surpassing our goals and would be posting our donations made to the charities that I support. January is for ACS, February is for AHA, and March is for ADA.

I'm also going through some life-changing decisions right now. Aside from the daily responsibilities in the last few months of my high school senior year, JessiCakes Project, community, and church activities, I have been busy touring and applying to colleges and universities. It's been a very exciting journey for me and my parents. I'm happy to say also that out of 5 colleges that I have applied to, 3 of them already accepted me, the other remaining two universities are due to respond by end of March or early April. I am so overwhelmed with the kind words and congratulatory messages that people had been posting on my mom's Facebook wall. Some people sent me private messages since we're not FB friends, but I assure you that I got each one of them.

I did say busy several times haven't I? But, I have to say it Anyway, it's okay because time flies when you're having fun. I'm having fun.

In the following days, I will be switching gears. I need to mull over which school to choose. It's hard since I love them all. That's why I only chose to apply to 5 schools as opposed to the average number of schools ranging from 8 to 15...imagine how exhausting that would be!

I chose these five schools because I see that I can fit in and they share the same ideals of giving back to the community.Wish me luck you guys! I need it.

OK, I better stop blogging for now. I still have some cake pops to make that are due for delivery today.

Take care y'all...have a happy and enjoyable day!

:) <3 - Jessica
