Our Sophia The First inspired cake. One of the many different cakes we did this weekend.
We love being creative and finding different ways to do similar themes. Here is another version of a Lego cake.
Our first wedding cake. Three layers of chocolate vanilla and strawberry.
"The King in Yellow". The latest in our line of cakes based on the role playing game Arkham Horror. This cake was a cherry cake with cherry frosting filling and vanilla frosting.
Our latest work of art in sugar and flour. We were given a picture of a shoe and had to make a cake of it. I think it turned out great. I am sure it smelled much better than the original shoe. These are the projects we love at Sweetly Wild.
This is what happens when you try to mix Phantom of the Opera with Dr. Who. Cthulhu becomes angry. Cthulhu and Dr. Who are popular themes at Sweetly Wild. This would be our third cake for each. This is our first Phantom of the Opera cake. The Mask turned out great.
The Doctor wishes you a happy birthday. This cake includes a Cyberman, The Ood, a Dalek and the sonic screwdriver.
Our latest birthday cake. This one was for an Enchanted Forest themed birthday party.
I was listening to the radio the other day, and the commentators were talking about the new food flavor trend going around. It was not some exotic flavor like jasmine, corriander or cardamon. It was not some crazy combination like chocolate covered bacon, which I need to try, or deep fried twinkies, which are overrated. No, it is something we all know and love, the birthday cake, and, more specifically, birthday cake flavored products.
A whole glut of products have recently hit the market branded as birthday cake flavor. Birthday cake oreo, Good Humor birthday cake bars, Pinnacle Cake Vodka and, just in time for Easter 2014, Party Cake Peeps. These products are being sold as your basic vanilla birthday cake. How do you turn the vanilla ice cream in a Good Humor bar into a birthday cake? Branding, that’s how! Make a vanilla flavored vodka and call it cake. Let them drink cake.
What really puzzles us at Sweetly Wild is the question, what exactly is “Birthday Cake” flavor? You would think we would know. I mean, we have made a few birthday cakes, right? The difficulty lies in the fact that ANY flavor can be labeled birthday cake flavor as long as it’s one the birthday girl or boy likes! For example, my favorite cake flavor is “strawberry”, my husband’s is “pumpkin spice”, my daughter’s is “lemon blueberry” and my son’s is “chocolate.” So, following my previous line of reasoning, ALL of these flavors could be considered “birthday cake flavor!” Whether it is the “traditional” yellow cake, red velvet, chocolate jalepeno or lemon cake with lemon buttercream, there is nothing traditional about our cakes. We keep experimenting with non-traditional flavors like the latest in our Sweetly Wild After Dark Line, the Jack and Cake.
It really doesn’t matter what you consider “Birthday Cake” flavor. At Sweetly Wild the one flavor you won’t get is the boxed cake flavor. Our cakes are made from scratch and are as individual as the birthday boy or girl.
Our totally rad 80s themed cake. It turned out pretty gnarley.
