Fig & Ruby Sweet #3 is awarded to:
I had originally planned on making both the truck and the digger out of cake but I came to my senses and convinced myself that my 2 year old would be thrilled with "only" a digger made out of cake :) He was thrilled. He enjoyed eating the "dirt" out of the back of the truck most of all.
This cake opened up my mind to how fun cakes for boys can be!!

The Poodle on the Pillow Cake!
This cake stretched me in a lot of ways...I had never made a "shaped cake", I had never used fondant...and I had never experienced a "cake disaster" when I opened the fridge the morning of a party!
Our little pink poodle's entire head fell off overnight and sent me into a panic in the morning! Because this was my first disaster, I was not prepared...I did not have extra icing. I had to whip up a whole extra batch, tint it the correct shade of poodle pink, and repair Miss Poodle in time for the party. It all worked out and I learned a lot along the way.
Fig & Ruby Favorite Sweet #8 is....
I loved how funky these guys looked perched on top of the light teal icing! They had so much personality with their wiggly legs and sprinkles on their heads. They were also really really fragile so it was an extra big accomplishment when they were safely placed on their cupcakes!
My favorite cakes might end up being a bit memory-biased because for me, most of my favorites have personal significance as well :) This particular cake I made for a woman who called me out of the blue, she was so excited for her sister and she wanted her to have the perfect cake for her new baby boy. The proud Grandpa came to pick up the cake and even showed me pictures of his precious Grandchildren. What a sweet and loving family, I had thought at the time. 4 months later, the principal of my girls' school came up to me and told me that I had made his son's baby shower cake! Such a small world!
Stay tuned for my #8 favorite tomorrow!!!
Check out their cool "display" too... We are always happy to work with you and provide a super cool way to present your Fig & Ruby treats.

Let's be honest, not everyone loves cake. That is okay, they don't have to, there's more for the rest of us!! If you have someone special in your life who is a non-cake eater, we can accommodate!
Each wine glass was filled with cheesecake and the table was full of topping options. The "cake" still donned candles for the big "Happy Birthday" song and it made quite the statement.
Do not be discouraged by the "non cakers" in your life, you may not be able to understand their cake issues, but we can definitely help you come up with a way to acknowledge them on their special day with something other than cake!

Although I LOVE creating cool and unique cakes, sometimes classic is just as enjoyable! This cake order for a classic 50th anniversary wedding cake was so fun to make and it reminded me that the originality of the cake is not what is most important, it is the sentiment behind it!

The way I see it, cake is art! As much as I love the classic looking birthday cakes, sometimes it's fun to mix it up a little bit! Today I was in the mood for preppy stripes. I hope the birthday girl loved it!

Cakes are such a great sentiment. This cake was purchased by one sister to congratulate the other on her new baby.

How sweet it is to order a custom cake for your loved ones as opposed to the average sheet cake. Order yours today!!
