2014 was such a whirlwind of sugary sweetness that I regret not blogging at least once a week to track the memories of what all I was able to accomplish. I was able to partake in and create some wonderful events, great parties and fun times which I will share pics of shortly.
2015 has came in fast as ever. I've at least started off the year so far having all the bakery area sorted and organized and ready for all the future cakes. I hope to get more cake dummies made and on display to offer a trendy up to date variety of what Party Cakes by Heather can offer. I also have been working on several varieties of specialties cakes that have proven to be crowd favorites. one being the Reese's peanut butter cake with peanut butter buttercream, chopped up Reese's in the center and on top along with peanut butter and chocolate chip morsels around the edges. Here's a pic of the layered up center:

Also another tasty creation is a carrot cake with cream cheese buttercream and adorned with toasted pecans.
 
 This one unfortunately I did not take a pic of the inside layers, but I call it an Island Dream Cake. I had to add an edible image to this particular one. It is layers of fresh banana and strawberry cake with coconut buttercream and rolled in toasted coconut.
 This one is a German chocolate with chocolate buttercream and traditional coconut pecan icing.

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year! 2013 has come and gone in a flash and along with that has been many exciting changes. First off, me and my hubby purchased a (new to us) home on 5 acres. The best part is that I am able to finally have a professional bakery space in our basement. It's still a work in progress, but I'm so thrilled to have this opportunity. I didn't make any resolutions this year as I usually don't stick to them, but I am looking forward to what 2014 will offer. At least I'm off to a good start. I have 2 cakes due on Friday and one on Saturday, so that's awesome. Pics will be uploaded this weekend.

Since I'm behind on blogging (hopefully that will get better in 2014) here are a few cake favs that have warranted a lot of "likes" on my PartyCakes By Heather Baggett fb page.

Camo girl and her hunting dogs

What to you make a little 9 yr old girl who loves hunting and dogs, a camo girl hunting cake.

This cake was alot of fun to make. I camoed the sides of the cake in buttecream and grass tipped the top. A fondant wooden sign on the front and sign post on the cake helped with the hunting theme. A few mushrooms and daisies completed the look.


Looking forward to posting all of this weeks cakes too!

Flower pot cake with hummingbird

I had the opportunity to create a super cute cake this past weekend for a lady's surprise 70th birthday. I was told she likes flowers, butterflies and if one humminbird could be on there. This is what I came up with.


Here were the step to make it. First I had to determine how many the cake needed to feed, in this case about 30.

The grass base was a single layer (2") tall  10" round cake & the pot was 2 (8") round cakes, filled in the center and trimmed to size.

the top stayed 8" around but I carved down to a base of about 6 1/2" . (excess is to the right)

then I covered in a crumb coat, then a final layer of buttercream, let it crust slightly and smoothed it with a viva. Next, I colored some fondant a clay pot color (Wilton gel color terra) and then covered the cake.

once I got the fondant smoothed, I cut out a portion at the top to expose just the buttercream underneath. This is where the "dirt" will go. (My dirt was oreo cookies). NOTE: I should have used chocolate buttercream or tinted the white buttercream brown and some of the white from the buttercream showed through, as well as the oreos were not smashed as well as they should have been.


I had already premade all of my fondant goodies, such as the butterflies, the hummingbird and all the flowers a few days before. They needed time to form & harden. I did add an inch stripe of fondant around the top to look like the lip of the pot  :( no pic). Then just assembled everything else.
