Leopard & Bling

All the drama a Diva could ask for…Leopard & Bling was the theme for this cake made for Lauren.  A Vanilla Cake with Swiss Meringue Buttercream and a Mocha Cream Filling between layers.  A hand painted Leopard print in tan’s blacks and a shiny gold.  I made this look like a pretty package topped off with black fondant ribbon and a gumpaste black bow and to add that final touch some edible sparkly gems!  Purrrrfect dahling!

Minions and Hockey

Created a Despicable Me Minion cake for a Minion & hockey lover, a Montreal Habs hockey lover at that!  At least she has good taste lol!  First time making a minion, hopefully won’t be the last.  They are so adorable, I just wanted to hug him, but I guess that would not be such a good idea, so I guess you could say I just wanted to EAT him!  

Vanilla cake with a Mocha Cream Filling and a Mocha Cream Frosting, entirely covered in fondant.

Go Habs Go!

Macarons

Trying out some Macarons today, practice makes perfect right??  Made a Pistachio Macarons with a Chocolate Filling and a Blue Macarons with a Cherry Filling.  Could have been higher but they still tasted pretty awesome  🙂

Candy Cane Lollipops

First post for 2015!   !! HaPpY NeW YeAr  from Village Sweets !!

Haven’t had much time for blogging…Oooops!

Christmas is over (already!) and after all the buches, the cakes, the cookies, I think one of my favorite things was making the Candy Cane Lollipops.  I was asked to donate some sweets for a fund raiser (The Children’s Wish Foundation) and I happily agreed, and decided to make some colorful red and green candied popcorn in cello bags with festive Christmas ribbon.  I also made these Candy Cane Lollipops in Chocolate and White Chocolate.  In my haste to finish things on time, I forgot my camera for the popcorn, but I did get a picture of the lollipops.
