Zozo's tutu-and-ties-themed Birthday!

Here at Bims we don't just love making cakes.....we love being a part of your memories......

It always warms the heart when we get a return client. Uche, Zozo's mom, contacted us to make this cake, cupcakes and cookies for Zozo's tutu-and-ties themed birthday party this past weekend.

While delivering this cake, it hit me that we have been a part of Zozo's family celebrations for a long time. We made a tea-party cake for Uche's bridal shower in 2010, a bumble-bee themed cake and cupcakes for Uche's baby shower in 2011 and, if you recall, Zozo's ladybug 1st birthday cake in 2012. We also made Uche's birthday cake earlier this year!

Flavors included pink velvet with vanilla filling and white chocolate frosting, and a double chocolate cake with vanilla filling and chocolate ganache.

Uche sent us a picture of a cake she wanted replicated. While not originally designed by us, we found the cake and color scheme to be absolutely beautiful. Please let us know if you know the original designer of this cake.

Bowtie cookies were in attendance :o)

What's not to love about these adorable little tutu cookies??

We also made chocolate cupcakes with vanilla frosting.

Happy 2nd birthday to the adorable Zozo! Thank you for including us in your celebrations so far!

Harvard Grad Cake

It's graduation season!

My brother-in-law graduated from Harvard med school a few weeks ago. We are so proud of him and celebrated his achievement with a party with family and friends.

My sister asked me to make a cake and cupcakes commemorating the day.  The cake was topped with a version of the Harvard logo and a whimsical stethoscope.

He looooves carrot cake so.....the main cake was a carrot cake with vanilla bean swiss meringue buttercream.

The cupcakes were vanilla and red velvet topped with fondant pills, an EKG 'lines', etc.

Fondant graduation hats, diplomas and a version of the Harvard logo also topped some of the cupcakes.

Congratulations Uche and all the 2013 graduates!!!!

Zebra Birthday Cake and more from BimsFlavors

It's birthday season (Isn't it always? :o))!! Sometimes you just want a simple round cake to feed a few people.. Maybe you're having a get together or just a simple dinner. Today's post will feature a few simple cakes we've made in the past few weeks.
Bambie's friends ordered a cake for her for her birthday get-together (hint hint to all my good friends birthday is coming up---in 6 months lol).

                 They ordered a Zebra-themed red velvet cake with french vanilla swiss meringue filling.

They wanted something 'girly'. Funny enough I'm not a girl's-girl -not a tom boy either- but I'm somewhere in the middle. BUT I have to say that after having a daughter and baking cakes, I'm getting in touch with my inner girl :)

Uche celebrated the big 3-0 and had a small dinner with a few friends. She decided to surprise her sister Buife (who turned 25 a few weeks before) with a cake as well at the dinner. (hint hint again to my sisters lol).

Both cakes were red velvet (see a trend here?). Uche's cake had a vanilla filling with white chocolate ganache and Buife's was the same with chocolate ganache.

Happy Birthday ladies!
