An activity that is always a big hit at my girls' birthday parties is decorating cupcakes or cookies. Every child I have ever met loves the messy, sweet fun of smearing on the icing, tasting the sweet goodness and eating the end results! This Halloween make the celebrating easy for your kids by getting one of my Halloween cupcake kits. 6 delicious cupcakes (chocolate, vanilla or both), 3 bags of Swiss Meringue Buttercream in Halloween colours and a generous selection of eyeballs and creepy, cavity-filled teeth. Be sure to sneak a decorated cupcake for yourself!! Contact me for pricing.

Horse themed cake week continues. Unlike the passing fancy of a doll or a favourite tv show, a child's love of horses can continue for a lifetime. What might have originally started out as a love of ponies could eventually lead to a more serious dedication to show jumping, dressage and competition. In that frame of mind, here is a cake for the more serious rider or for someone who aspires to be.
This cake can be any flavour you choose. The cake is filled, stacked and then carved into a helmet shape. It can be covered in fondant of any colour and comes complete with a fondant riding crop. This is one "sweet" cake. For your rider's next birthday, consider a party at Foxwood Farm, a wonderful riding facility just north of Bradford (http://www.foxwood.ca/). Their beautiful rural location is home to more than a dozen horses and a brand new indoor arena and tack room that is perfect for parties!

Foxwood Farm is located on 25 acres just north of Bradford, Ontario (http://www.foxwood.ca/). Along with large grass pastures and a renovated 1900's bank barn, they just constructed a 62X150' coverall building which has an indoor arena and a large insulated and heated viewing/tack room. This wonderful new facility allows the owner, Robyn, to teach riding rain or snow or shine and she now has the ability to host birthday parties! If you are looking for a horse themed party, consider one of my cakes and consider Foxwood Farm.
This is a replica of the cake I made for the grand opening of their new indoor arena. Gum paste fencing and a winner's ribbon make this cake a winner!
