Woof Woof

Everyone gets to indulge in sweet treats, but what about your four legged friend? I have four dogs and love to bake for them too! They deserve something delicious to snack on, and my dogs LOVE my homemade dog biscuits, especially when they have peanut butter in them! Check out Shiloh, Tucker, Sadie, and Keller lounging around after a yummy treat! The biscuits can be cut out in any shape.

The First of Many

Today, September 25, 2010, I delivered my very first wedding cake. I was asked about a month ago to make a wedding cake for a friend's sister. Of course I was ecstatic! This has been my dream since I began making cakes. The bottom tier is pound cake with buttercream, the middle tier is yellow cake with lemon buttercream, and the top tier is pound cake with peanut butter buttercream. All tiers were covered in cream cheese icing. A chocolate brown ribbon was wrapped around each tier and then handmade chocolate brown gum paste flowers were placed on the tiers. An "S" topped the cake! I would say SUCCESS for my first of hopefully many!

Sponge Bob Lives in a Pineapple Under the Sea!

Sponge Bob really does live under the sea! Jase will be celebrating his 4th birthday with the coolest beach cake with Sponge Bob sitting in the sand on his own little island with some shells and pineapples! This yellow cake is covered in blue buttercream to look like the ocean and the waves. There is fondant coral and chocolate shells. Sponge Bob is made from marshmallow fondant and is hanging out on the brown sugar sand!

Always a Princess

Every girl should have her special day where she can be a princess. Eva Joy has her day today! She will be celebrating her 5th birthday in full princess style! Her chocolate fudge cake is filled with cream cheese icing and covered in pale purple cream cheese icing. A pale pink fondant ribbon and bow adorn the bottom of the cake and it is topped with a sparkly tiara! Perfect fit for a princess!!!

I have finally remembered to blog about my new website. A few weeks ago I sat down and created a website for Firehouse Sweets. Don't worry, I will still keep blogging, however, I will definitely need the website as the business grows. I can't believe I am coming up on my one year anniversary already. I began making the cake balls back in October 2009 but didn't get my first official order until November 2009. (Stay tuned for November Anniversary Specials) Now almost a year later, it was time to begin an actual website. It includes the menu of all baked goods, general information about Firehouse Sweets, photographs of the yummy goodies, comments and guestbook pages (so please leave me your comments), and a calendar which includes all of my upcoming orders! Please take a minute to check it out! You wont regret it and it may cause you to drool, so place your orders now!

Keep your eyes out for changes to Firehouse Sweets! New flavors and ideas are among us!

Happy 3rd Birthday Samantha!!! It was my pleasure to create a Ladybug themed birthday cake for the sweetest 3 year old that I know! My wonderful co-worker Jenn asked me to make her daughters birthday cake. Samantha is in love with ladybugs and the color pink. The bottom tier was chocolate fudge cake and yellow cake with Oreo butter cream and marshmallow fondant ladybugs. The top tier was yellow cake with hot pink marshmallow fondant made into a ladybug. A chocolate fudge, lime green ladybug joined the party as well!
