Comin' at ya live, 3-D CAKES! (No silly glasses required)

Hello again, loyal Sugarlips fans! Today I thought we'd show off a few of our more recent 3-D cakes! These cakes take a lot of time to plan out, sculpt and finish, so they are among the most laborious cakes we make. They are also a super-fun addition to any special occasion!

It's in the bag!!
This cute-as-can-be purse cake was ordered for a bridal shower, and the wedding colors were taupe and raspberry, with gerber daisies. Other than that, the design of the purse was left up to us! Notice the metallic hardware, and even the "sewn" seam edging. The strap fell casually along the back. Everything you see is edible! It's a shame you have to cut it!

Welcoming a new little princess
This gorgeous 3-D tiered castle cake was ordered for a huge lavish baby shower, to welcome a much anticipated little sweetheart! This full-view pic fails to show the close-up detail, but the castle has diamond-paned windows with wooden shutters, gothic door, and ivy/vines with well over 100 cupped pink flowers. The castle surface was a variegated silver-painted fondant with piped brick-work and gumpaste turrets. Whew! A lot of work!!

You can't help but wonder what's in the bag???
Get your mind out of the gutter, this bag is full of delicious CAKE! We love to make 3-D shopping bags! They turn out so darn cute. Even the tissue paper is an edible rice paper, airbrushed with edible color and luster dust. We also make an edible receipt, totaling up the goods, and adding your special message, often with a pun or two!

Who doesn't LOVE to get a present?
Presents are welcome at ANY special occasion, especially when they contain something tasty. We can take your party's theme colors and produce an elegant, whimsical, or even masculine present cake design, complete with an edible bow and tag. Partygoers can hardly wait for the guest of honor to unwrap this one!!

Aren't you hungry for Sugarlips now?
Making a cheeseburger cake is a blast, however I always go home hungry for a burger. This cake is all buttercream iced, with fondant "cheese", for Leeah's 12th b-day. Don't like onions? Hold the pickles? Hold the lettuce? Special orders don't upset us!!
Ahhhhh, Sugarlips... I'm lovin' it.
