Box of Chocolates Cake

Box of Chocolates Cake for SPCA Fundraiser Raffle

I've made various "Box of Chocolates" cakes, and they are always well-received.  I used a Choco-Pan around the edges for the "box" which really compliments the already chocolatey flavour of this cake.  Simple, yet elegant (or at least that's the look I was going for!)

Nanaimo Clippers Hockey Jersey Cake

Go Nanaimo Clippers!

This cake was requested by the lovely and thoughtful Volunteer Coordinator of the Nanaimo Clippers hockey team.  I had a lot of fun making this cake - as simple as it looks, it took a fair bit of planning (and over thinking and re-thinking and so on!) to get it just right!

Retirement Cake

John Montie Lawn & Garden Cake

Requested for the retiring owner, by his family.  This cake travelled several miles, including a ferry ride, to get to it's destination.  The roof line and small details of the building gave me a fun challenge to work with!  7 layers of cake at the heighest point!
