Split screen

It is getting more common and fancy to split a cake for two birthdays or occasions celebrated at the same time. We think the days of having more than one cake for same day functions are possibly numbered. We did a split cake for Nana’s two kids last week. The idea of different themes on one cake seems quite strange but when done properly can…

Ombre Cake

We decided to mess around this past week to bring on some innovation as well as indulge in some of the old school cake designs.
