Beaker from the Muppets Birthday Cake!

We made a Beaker from the Muppets Cake for this past Sunday the 27th of December.  I think it turned out really cute.  We hand molded Beaker from Marshmallow Fondant.  His hair we used a reddish orange icing for.  The cake was a marble cake with chocolate icing and Marshmallow Fondant on top.  It looked Yummy and smelled sooo good!  I just love the way Beaker turned out.  Sooo proud of him!  It only took us until 4:30 in the morning to finish.  We had a three tier Winnie th ePooh cake to make for Sunday as well.  Not to mention the Christmas Party at my house that didn't end until 7:30.  Oh the joys of running a home bakery  :)

3 Tier Winnie The Pooh Birthday Cake!

So this weekend we had the chance to make a three tier Winnie the Pooh Cake.  It was for a little boys 2nd Birthday Party.  The color scheme was yellow, blue, and green.  The top tier was a "hunny" pot.  The middle tier she wanted a banner being held up by bees.  Also the writing "Happy 2nd Birthday Super Sleuth Jayden"

The bottom tier was an argyle pattern going the whole way around and since we were going with the Super Sleuth theme.  What would be more appropriate than the Upside down triangle with the question mark inside!  I think the cake turned out great and almost everyone loves Pooh so I have a feeling this will be just the beginning of our Pooh cake making journey.    :)

This is the picture sent to us by the boys mother.  Thanks Jennifer!!

The comment she left was so wonderful.  It really makes you feel like you are doing a great job when you actually hear back about a cake.  The times that you don't only leave you questioning everything??  I do love making cakes and I think this one is right at the top of my favorites!

Here was her comment:

Dear Amy,

The cake was wonderful and my son absolutely loved it. The cake was yummy and decorated

perfectly! Jayden has been running up to it for 2 days now picking off the fondant balls and eating

them.Everyone at the party couldn't stop talking about how beautiful it was. I have enclosed some

pics of Jayden with the cake. Everyone who has seen the pics on facebook has commented on the

cake and how amazing it is. Can't wait to have you create another masterpiece for our next

special occassion!

Thanks again!

Jennifer and Jayden

These were the pictures of the cake I took before they got here.  As you can see Pooh and Tigger weren't on the top of the Birthday cake in her picture.  They just wouldn't stay up there  :)  I think they look much better at the bottom of the cake.  The candle looked so cute on the top as well!

Delivered Cookies, Brownies, and Zucchini Bread to East York!

Had a big delivery on Wednesday night.  I had to deliver 4 mini loaves of Zucchini bread, 1 dozen chocolate Chip Cookies, and 8 Fudgy Brownies with Red and Green Chocolate drizzle, to East York.  I wish I could say this was a quick and easy order but it took alot of time to individually wrap and seal each cookie, brownie, and quick bread.  I am thinking I will have to work on the packaging process in the future to make it more efficient.  I never even made it to drop off the package until a little after 7.  It was to a home in East York out by the York Galleria Mall.  Being in Dover it took some time to get out there with all of the Christmas traffic.

Well another hectic day in the life of a Baker  :)  Really though it isn't that bad.  I bake cookies, brownies, breads, and cakes for living.  I can think of a few more painful things in life.  Can you?  LOL!!

All of our treats can be ordered online by visiting our store.

If you need something to be delivered or have a special request you can contact me directly to discuss your needs.  You can contact me by visiting us on the web at

Hannah Montana Guitar Cakes I can make!

I have made two guitar cakes in the past 4 months.  It seems to be every little Hannah Montana Birthday Girls Dream.  So here I am the Cake Fairy making all there guitar cake wishes come true ;)  I mean if the Princess wants a Hannah Montana Guitar Cake, then the Princess needs a Hannah Montana Guitar Cake!

Ok so this next one isn't a guitar cake and it doesn't have any true signs of being a Hannah Montana Cake except for the colors, I know.  However it was my first Birthday Cake made back in September for my cousins daughter's birthday and the Birthday Party was a Hannah Montana Theme.  So I am including it here.

Joe Live Show Celebrates 20th Anniversary! I make the Cake!

I just made a cake for the Joe Live Show in York, PA!  It was alot of fun.  If you watch the show Joe sits in front of an American Flag most of the time.  Which is why the American Flag theme was requested. 

Since it was there 20th Anniversary I made a big "2-0" to go on top.  Made some red stripes to represent those found on a flag.  I used marshmallow fondant for all the decorations and to completely cover everything but the sheet cake.  This cake was to feed 200 people!!  This was my biggest order so far.  I think it turned out great!  Congratulations "Joe Live" on your 20th Anniversary!

Red Velvet Cake...Yummy!

I just love everything about Red Velvet cake.  Especially around this time of year.  The color Red just feels like Christmas!  The Cream Cheese Icing is by far my favorite icing ever.  So it makes perfect sense to pair it with my favorite Cake.....right!?! 

This slice inpaticular was made for a client who setup an appointment for a Wedding Cake Taste Testing.  There were a total of 3 clients for the day.  One client called the night before at 12:30 to reschedule.  They just happened to be the couple who requested the Red Velvet Cake.  The other two cakes made for the day were a Chocolate Cake with Peanut Butter Icing.   The second Cake was a White Almond Cake with Lemon Filling and Buttercream icing!  My mouth is watering just thinking about them!

Back to the Red Velvet, there is a point to my rambling, the two clients I had that day that did not request Red Velvet Cake actually went with the Red Velvet!  It's just that good!!

Owning a Bakery in York, PA takes Super Powers!

Owning a baking company can be challenging at times. When you have a husband and three kids who need your time and attention focusing on anything else is pretty diffucult. Somehow I manage to step into my magic phone booth and come out Superwoman. Or at least I wish it was that easy.

Luckily for me I have a huge passion for anything artistic and creative which is my secret super power. I really don't think I could run this Bakery without them. Oh yeah and being able to actually Bake and be good at it really helps as well. There is a trade off however. After all no Super hero has it all. (i have a tiny little secret that pertains to cooking) Can't do it, maybe some day, but for now I will Bake :)

Owning a Bakery in York, PA isn't really the hard part. There are lots of people in York, and one thing that comes with everyone, no matter who you are, is a Birthday! Luckily for me that is what I do I make Cake. Cake for Weddings, Cake for Birthdays, Cake for any reason really. So I am extremely fortunate to live in a town where there are people. Because with people come Birthdays.... I know I said it already. Just wanted to point it out again. The magic thing about people with birthdays is tey usually grow up to have weddings, babies, and eventually you have a snowball effect. If my cakes are good. I now have a business setup for lot's of success in the future!

To sum it all up I am very Thankful for what I do and for being good at what I do. Most importantly I am Thankful to everyone who believes in me and Bear Heart Baking Company!
