Vroom Vroom…Yum Yum

Recently I just completed making a Volkswagon Bus Cake Hippie Style.  This bus was so much fun to make!  The cake, a Red Velvet with 4 layers of delicious Cream Cheese Frosting for the inside, for the outside a not too sweet Vanilla Butter-cream, which is covered in a tinted Fondant to mimic the 70’s style bus.  Adding all the colorful flowers, the radical surfboard and the candy windows make this a real grooooovy cake.   Peace out man!

Pretty Accessories for your Desserts


My sister and I recently embarked on starting a new venture called “Village Sweets”.   I have been so busy with this project that my blog has been temporarily neglected, (not to mention my gardens  😦  Oooops!).   Once things  get ironed out,  I can start getting back on track with my routine again, but new things always keep me busy and being busy means business… I hope.

We have been taking classes since the spring and we will soon finish them, knowledge is power right?   So what is Village Sweets?  It’s a cake and dessert business.  We are focusing on weddings, parties and special events and of course our favorite, children’s parties.  Creating unique cakes, cupcakes, cake pops,  favors and flavors  are what we specialize in.  We have also been creating beautiful edible Royal Icing flowers to decorate those special desserts. What I love about these flowers is they can last forever if you store them properly in an air-tight container away from light and heat.  They come in amazing styles, colors, and sizes.  They make beautiful accents to your wedding favors and wedding cakes.   Adding a pretty sugar flower to your dessert just makes it pop, makes it special.  How is this any different from when you go out?  You throw on a scarf?  Jewelry?  well my motto is,  I want my desserts or cupcakes to walk the runway (or your dining room table) looking as divine as ever!  You can visit our Etsy shop!
