I do feel terrible for you... just try to
hang in there!
Nobody panic... they don't sting! Handmade fondant monogram pieces top buttercream-iced cupcakes for a modern bridal shower. Very cool!

This was a teeny-tiny order, but one I couldn't resist due to it's extreme cuteness. These were prepared for a 1st birithday; cupcakes iced in pink buttercream and trimmed with white non-pareils, with a pink flower piped in the center. Awwwww.

For just $2.50 a piece, both of these custom cupcake styles are a major score!


Caryn and Tim had a Pool Party style wedding reception, and wanted something fun, modern and whimsical in a wedding cake. I think they hit the nail on the head with this design! Iced in white buttercream, and covered with random fondant dots and circles in hot pink, bright blue and black, this one was a real eye-catcher! We finished it off with a black and white polka-dot trim, to really make it pop!

Want something different for your wedding? Want to go classic-traditional? Hey man, we don't judge! Get in here and browse thru our albums; you're sure to see something that floats your boat! If not, we'll design a cake just for you.

Until next blog!

Next up, is a really cool cake for an Engagement party. Kristyn and Brandon met in San Francisco, so it was a no-brainer to theme their cake accordingly! We started out with a hand-made trolley sculpted in edible fondant sugar dough, and placed it upon a buttercream-iced cake. The cake was hand-piped on every surface with assorted San Francisco scenery. Here we show the front and back view, highlighting the bridge (of course!) and assorted other landmarks, including Chinatown, Pier 39, Fishermans Wharf, and a little hippie action with peace signs and Ashbury & Haight Street signs.

Welcome to our New Blog!

Hello, and WELCOME to our new blog for
Sugarlips Cakery, "The Latest Licks"!

We'll be blogging about what's going on in the custom cake world, and what we're up to as far as events/bridal shows, our favorite businesses and party/wedding vendors, and of course, THE CAKES!!
Every week, we'll feature some of the fun/outrageous/sentimental cakes we've designed for our lovely customers, and occasionally, the stories that accompany them. If you love those crazy cake shows, you'll love our blog.
And we love feedback, so let us know what you'd like to see more of.....AND AWAY WE GO!!!

First up, is a mention of The East Valley Bridal Show, held at the Mesa
Convention Center, which we participated in this past Sunday the 16th. The show had a wonderful turn-out; we met a lot of beautiful blushing brides-to-be, and a great time was had by all. We prepared the blue wedding cake to display, and we also handed out
samples of our awesome Pink Champagne cake to 200 lucky tasters.

And BTW, "We DO" sell the mirrored care topper ornaments that spell out "I Do", as shown on our display cake, as well as one that says "Mr. & Mrs", and also a Chinese character for Double Happiness. These are a beautiful and unique way to crown your wedding cake.
