Party Cakes, Inc. created a larger-than-life sized bottle of Vodka with glasses and olives to showcase their talents at the Second Annual Vodka Vodka event sponsored by Metro Times at the Royal Oak Farmer’s Market on January 28, 2011. The free tastings featured Chocolate cake truffles infused with Raspberry vodka and Vanilla cake truffles infused with Vanilla vodka. Proceeds from the invitation-only party benefitted Forgotten Harvest.
Here are the photos from the first fondant class held at Party Cakes on Saturday, January 8, 2011. Eight 12-year-old girls learned that it’s not as easy as it looks. Cable shows like The Cake Boss or Ace of Cakes only show the highlights of decorating their cakes. These girls got dirty and had fun learning how to cut out fondant flowers, cover a little cake with a sheet of fondant, trim it and finish it with butter cream icing. Then they applied their freshly formed flowers and designs to what they wanted and each walked out with their own 4″ cake…2 1/2 hours later.
The class was a huge success and I would definitely do it again. Everyone learned something, including the teacher.
If you want more information on how to arrange a class of your own, please call Party Cakes at 248-541-2253 and speak with Valerie Jackett.
You’re having a baby! And you want the cake to be extra special. Party Cakes can do that! These tiered cakes show off two very different designs. Each non-traditional cake could be designed with your budget in mind but these moms-to-be wanted a more dramatic effect.
This cake shows a camouflage design in blue topped with a “package” cake on top finished with a fondant bow. The baby blocks that spell out the name are made from cereal treats covered in fondant. Hours of work with spectacular results.
The baby clothesline is a fun design that incorporates all the colors for baby and not just pink and blue. What is truly unique about this cake is the baby on top: created with fondant, hand painted and wrapped in a blanket! Here is a close-up photo:

Just because the air is cool and the daylight is less, it’s always wedding season in Michigan. The designs can be more unique based on current trends or whatever the bride and groom want. Mixing colors with flowers provides many different ideas for each cake. Here are a few examples.
The next bride chose a dramatic contrast between the base icing and the flowers. The results were fabulous!

The title may say “fall” yet these wedding cakes could be for any season. Many photos to browse here and most need no explanation. The “groom’s cake” is multi-themed and is very unique!

From anchors to palm trees, the brides want it all and with their own personal touches. Sometimes I even get a say in the design!
Elegance was the final word for this next design with 100′s of tiny fondant flowers all over the three tiers. Here is a close-up view:
Of course this would look entirely different if I would have based iced the cake in a pastel color OR the flowers were created in a BOLD color. Maybe in the fall….
Every bride is unique and their wedding cake is no exception. Here are some of the unique wedding cake designs that Party Cakes created this past month. This first photo is from a cake that was delivered to the 71st floor of the Renaissance Center in downtown Detroit.
The next two photos are similar but different. With the change of a ribbon and no flowers on the cake, the look is totally unique.
This groom designed his cake without any input from his bride. And it was beautiful with every detail.
This final wedding cake design started with an email from a groom writing from New York. The cake design was completed in the spring and delivered on June 25, 2010.
These photos represent some of the wedding cakes that were created by Party Cakes in June. I have posted just a few of the more memorable ones. For more information, please call us at 248-541-CAKE (2253) to schedule your personal consultation for your wedding cake design.

Stacked four layers high and constructed like a wedding cake with dowels and support boards, this popcorn box will serve 30-40 hungry children easily. Yes, that’s real popcorn overflowing from the top! Party Cakes likes to use real food items whenever possible.
This cake can stand on it’s own–literally! The wheels are oreos covered with fondant icing but everything else is sculpted butter cream. You CAN eat every bit of this car!
In May, 2010, Party Cakes was asked to create a very special display cake for Forgotten Harvest, a Michigan charity specializing in distribution of free food throughout the Detroit area. The event was a birthday party for Forgotten Harvest. “Harvey” was their first delivery vehicle and the working photo is a cartoon-type van with eyes for headlights and the grill work is his smile. With such a great image to work with, it was a labor of love to create Harvey. Using four quarter sheet cakes, Harvey was carved down to the van’s shape. His wheels were Oreo cookies covered with black fondant. All the detail work was done with fondant icing including covering the board with “grass”, the road and the flowers along the way. Harvey could feed 100 people but they never cut into him at the party. Nobody wanted to because he was just too cute!
