Can't believe the summer is almost gone! YAYYYY!!!! I know, I know lots of people love summer. Not me! (Although, I do LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the beach). Give me crisp, autumn weather or cold, winter weather. I even love rainstorms! Something about it gets the creative juices flowing.
Anyhoots, back to cakes. We have some wonderful fall flavors we offer in the summer: Pumpkin Pie Cake, Carrot Cake, Apple Cake, Butter Pecan, etc. There are so many combinations to try!
Stop by and see us and see what we come with for the cupcake case.
Have a crisp and wonderful fall!

I love baking cakes, decorating cakes and most of all EATING cakes!
I also like feedback from my customers. We received two thank you cards from brides who loved their cakes and two emails from two other customers.
The cake above was for our bride Ally. There was a bit of drama when the venue we were working with decided to bad mouth us to all the brides we had coming up at their location (ummm, venue doesn't pay then tell brides we have low quality work and are always late lol) I was so bummed out that they did that to us. Well a few of the brides insisted we still do their cake.
That is totally awesome. So to all my customers I say Thank You for all your support, encouragement and feedback.
A special shout out to Chuck who always makes me laugh and to Fred who brings us lunch!

Isn't it cute? I have a special fondness for frog princes. Frogs in general. We had claw frogs as pets which are great, because they are underwater frogs and come up for air every few minutes. Our much loved claw frog was named FROGZILLA. She was adorable and huge!
When I would get sick, my husband would tell me a story about a frog prince (not the original frog prince story, but his own made up story). It always made me feel better.
When thinking of a name for my business, I immediately thought about the frog and how I loved Grimm's Fairytales tales, hence...ONCE UPON A CAKE and my frog prince logo.
Cake IS The Happy Ending!

I love keeping up with trends in wedding cakes but I find most brides still want traditional cakes.
A lot of brides that meet with us want square cakes, with traditional designs such as dots or scrolls or plain sides with ribbon and flowers.
The cake above seems to be popular: square cakes, 1/4 turned with cascading flowers. Traditional with a slight twist (pun intended)!
This weekend we are doing our second topsy turvy cake. The first one we did was a "traditional" design with scrolls and ribbon and flowers. The one for this weekend is way untraditional!
Orange, green, blue and purple with peacock feathers and bright colored feathers!
Stay tuned for the result!

This is my daughter's high school graduation cake. She designed and sketched it herself. Can you imagine what she'll come up with for her wedding cake one day? YIKES!
The New Year has come in with a BANG! We scheduled a weekend getaway and BAM that's when Atlanta got hit with the storm. We caught the only flight back on Monday, then it took us three and half hours to get home! Perilous roads!
A few days later we find out my teen has a belly button hernia. What?! Yep! But, I bake and the smell of the almond cake filling the kitchen makes everything better!
I have lots of ideas for new cake flavor combos brewing in my mind, but I still hate to cook.
