What We've Been Up To!

Spring has sprung and our week has reflected that quite well! It's been a week of bright, cheerful cakes and we are loving it!

Pickle turned 1 this week! We do not know Pickle personally, but we (Joshua in particular) really enjoyed making her birthday cake. Pickle has to be one of the cutest baby nicknames to date!

Cookies were a huge hit this week! Heidi hand painted the Tulips and Bumble Bees. If you have not yet tried our brown sugar cookies, you have no clue what you're missing! They are incredible.

Easter Egg cookies, made by Karen and Heidi. What a pretty edition to an Easter basket... or Easter brunch hostess gift!

Happy Easter from all of us at Highland Bakery!

Look What We've Been Up To!

We want to start doing a weekly post to show you what cool cakes we've made recently. We'll tell you a little bit about the cake and let you know who made it. Enjoy!

Wedding dress cookies, made by Joshua. These were sent to local wedding dress boutiques by a local magazine. Each cookie was a little different and they were all worthy of a walk down the aisle.
Staley the Bear groom's cake, made by Heidi! The bride surprised her new husband with the cake at their reception.
Fairy and Mushroom cake for a little girl's 4th birthday, made by Karen. We love how it sparkles!
Bollywood Corset, made by Karen. This was for a 30th birthday party. The birthday girl had recently traveled to India and fell in love with the beautiful fabrics and clothes!

Chinese Dragon head, made by Karen out of fondant and modeling chocolate. The bride used to work at Highland Bakery and instead of a traditional tiered cake, she made little individual cakes that snaked back behind the dragon to mimic the shape of its body.
