A few weekends ago we had the pleasure of creating a "Tangled" themed birthday cake for a special little princess. The cake turned out wonderful, and when we heard the birthday girl ate the castle, we couldn't have been happier!

We made a vanilla cake with pink cream cheese frosting. The tower was quite an undertaking! It was huge and heavy! We made it out of rice krispie treats and cake, and then covered it in fondant. 

Need a custom cake for you next event? Let Simply Sweet create one for you!

Baking For Bastrop

Last weekend Simply Sweet donated over $250 worth of baked goods for Austin Bakes for Bastrop. Together with other bakers, bloggers, volunteers, professional chefs, and business owners we helped raise $12,765 for the Central Texas Wildfire Fund. It was so wonderful to be a part of this group and help out in any way we could. 

One touching moment from the bake sale was when a young girl walked up to me (Jenn) and said, "Thank you so much for what you are doing. You don't know how much this means to me. My father's house burnt down in the fire." I was so touched by her, as were the others at our table. It made what we were there doing so much more meaningful. 

We want to thank all our family and friends who came out to support us as well! We hope you enjoyed your cookies and cupcakes!

About our Confections

Did you know that some baking establishments (specifically grocery store bakeries) use boxed mixes that contain questionable ingredients like partially hydrogenated oils, high fructose corn syrup, artificial flavors and chemical preservatives?  We firmly believe that using the best available ingredients produces the best-tasting results.  That is why we make all of our confections from scratch using the the highest quality ingredients such as unbleached flours, rBGH-free dairy, cage-free eggs, and 100% pure extracts.  We think that you'll be able to taste the difference!

All of our confections are custom-made to our clients' specifications, making every creation truly one-of-a-kind.  Here is a unique example in a cake we recently completed, that replicated the 7 year-old birthday boy's artwork out of fondant:

Tyler's solar system collage cake consists of a double layer vanilla butter cake with raspberry filling and vanilla cream cheese frosting covered in black fondant with fondant/royal icing details.  We tried to stay as true to Tyler's original collage as possible.

The birthday boy was quite pleased with the result, which is always our ultimate goal.  Happy birthday, Tyler!

40th Birthday Cake

Last week we were asked to create a small birthday cake for a 40th birthday. Our client was surprising his wife with the cake, so we knew it had to be special! The only request were a white cake, cream cheese frosting, and fondant detailing incorporating the number 40. 

We couldn't be happier with how the cake turned out! We decided to go with a classic white, grey, and pink color palette to keep it chic and classy, just like the birthday girl.

We also created coordinating cupcakes for this cake which would be beautiful on any dessert table. This design can be re-created in any color scheme!
