This summer, I read the Hunger Games Trilogy back to back and have been eagerly waiting for the release of the movies! Finally, the Hollywood moment is upon us, and shockingly, Cranbrook has the movie for the premier week! Woo hoo!
To celebrate one of the best young adult novel series to be released since Harry Potter, and Twilight, I am having a Hunger Games party!
I just wanted to seem like I had an excuse for making Hunger Game CUPCAKES!
Easter is coming up quickly around the corner . . . why is it so early this year? Or is that just me thinking that it’s early? Regardless of when I “think” it’s supposed to happen, the Easter bunny has puked into the aisles of the local stores, and the Cadbury Cream Eggs are flying off the shelves!
I actually happen to love Easter . . . well, duh, who wouldn’t love a holiday where CHOCOLATE comes to town? Four days off, endless supplies of chocolate and a delicious ham dinner cooked by my Mom . . . BEST holiday ever!
To add to the Easter excitement in Cranbrook (and everywhere!), we have created a video that is a How-To video based on a cupcake design that we released last year for our 2011 Easter celebrations. If you are a beginning decorator, you will find this video completely within your comfort range!
Carrot cake cupcakes are the flavour that satisfy taste buds throughout the generations . . . the young, and the old and everyone in between. It’s traditional, it’s standard yet it can be fresh and unique with the right combination of spices!
Making carrot cake is a but more time intensive than say, a vanilla cake recipe, but it is well worth the mess of grating fresh carrots!
These cupcakes are inspired by the magical mystery of rainbows that brighten a day, just by appearing in the sky. It sounds like I’m on a fabulous LSD trip or something, but since us teachers are back to work tomorrow, I assure you, there are no psychedelics inspiring this post!

Basically, it is the monthly event that all us Cranbrookians wait excitedly for, knowing that there will be someone we know in the magazine . . . or even ourselves!
Constantly on the go, our family was alway driving back and forth to my sports events, or back and forth to my brother’s sporting events. Being that Cranbrook is realively in the middle of nowhere as far as sport competition sites, we had to drive, usually for hours, to play a quality game against quality competition.
We have spent the last year building an amazing bridal/wedding cake portfolio! We have done some amazing cakes (if I do say so myself) and I am extremely proud to show you the wedding cakes that we took with us to the St Eugene Bridal Show at the end of January. The St Eugene show is now the premier spot to showcase your wedding goods, and boy were we ever ready for the brides!
The following is an overview of the cakes that we took with us to the Bridal show . . . can you guess which one I made, and which ones Paul made??
This cake is a topsy turvy cake, with a completely edible love bird topper! Paul carved and sculpted these two cute love birds out of fondant and gum paste. The topsy turvy is covered in fondant, wrapped the the ribbon and twigs were applied to give it a sparsely wooded feel to it.
