Have your Skateboard & Eat it Too

Village Sweets worked on a special theme cake this week.  An all edible Skateboard for Gab. After figuring out the design, we were ready to create a cool looking skateboard complete with wheels and a ramp.  We added a checkerboard, flames and skull design to the top of the board. This skateboard was made of a Red Velvet cake with a Vanilla Butter-cream frosting covered in a cherry red fondant (Gab’s favorite color).  The ramp, also made with the red velvet cake and the wheels were fashioned out of Rice Krispie’s.  

Gab,  hope you enjoyed your cake and HaPpY BiRtHdAy!!

The Fruitcakes Are Coming…The Fruitcakes Are Coming

Yes!  The time is here, Village sweets wants everyone to know that Fruitcakes should not get such a bad rap… I mean hello?  What is so bad about them?  They are great looking, Festive, filled with delicious fruits and nuts.  A slice with tea or coffee, PERFECT!  So why is Fruitcake always getting the low down?  Because you have not had a Village Sweets Fruitcake of course!  

Now is the time to get your orders placed for our wonderful fruitcakes.  We are offering a large 6″ fruitcake (over 3″ high) or an individual Fruitcake 4″ (2″ high).  Both these cakes are being offered in a Rum or Brandy and also a med-light or dark cake.  The choice is yours. 

For gift giving and immediate consumption.  Village Sweets Fruitcakes can be elegantly covered in Fondant for a beautiful presentation to your guests or host (hostess).  Please note the fondant covered cakes should be consumed within one week.

Pretty in Pink

This cake was fashioned in  “3” and a “0” for a woman who is turning, you got it, 30!  tons of big roses in soft pink decorated both the numbers and a pennant banner was something different for the mention of the birthday girl.  Deep delicious and moist chocolate cake with butter-cream frosting, and just a few pearlesscent beads (edible) to add a little special detail to the cake.  We think,  so Pretty in Pink!  Bonne Fête Wilnie !!

‘A Metal Heads Dream Cake’

Another day of baking…This time a dream cake for a Metal Head.  Although the gum-paste fist should have dried for a longer period of time, the cake turned out awesome. This was a rush order and my daughter loved it!  Who wouldn’t want a fiery pit cake from hell?  Hmmmm
