It’s been super busy here lately because Sweet Escapes is having a BAKE SALE this SATURDAY!!! We’re introducing ALL NEW FLAVOURS and bringing back some classic favourites. I’m super, super super BEYOND excited because this is the first-ever bake sale and it will definitely not be the last one!
All the proceeds will be going to AFC (Ambassadors for Christ’s) missions team going to Prince Edward Island at the end of June. The team consists of passionate, young adults who are so on fire for God and restoring His kingdom here on earth. They will be holding a gospel camp for middle schoolers who are immigrants. It is going to an amazing cause and I’m so fortunate to be a part of this process.
One of the bestsellers this year is the MAPLE BACON CUPCAKES! These are so hot right now I’m thinking about taking out all the other flavours because this bacon one is KICKING THEIR BUTTS!!! I made these this week and they were so good I had 4 that night. AND I’M PROUD OF THAT!! Moist vanilla cupcakes are studded with smoked bacon topped with silky maple buttercream finished with crispy maple bacon. Oh my gosh! I think I will make some tonight
These guys have gone VIRAL and my pictures are being posted everywhere and everyone wants to get in on it… which is AWESOME! It’s almost cult-like in a way. Who knew I could start something like this!
If I had thought to make these THREE years ago, I’d be retired and enjoying my bacon-smelling money already. Sigh… it’s okay though, it’s never too late to chase a dream!
Pre-orders are strongly recommended to ensure you get the baked good that you want. Feel free to e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line: I WANT MY BACON!! All orders are to be picked up at 70 Gibson Drive, Unit 12 which is at Warden/Steeles behind the T&T plaza. You can’t miss it. There’s going to be a huge carnival even that day.
I’m so so so excited. Now… back to bacon cupcakes!
Hope to see you all there!
Remember the Angry Birds cake I did a few weeks ago for Damien? I got to make a birthday cake for his dad this weekend. When Damien’s mom presented me with the idea of a “Sons of Anarchy” cake, my first response was, “Sons of… whaa?”. She sent me tons of photos and wanted her husband to be sculpted on the cake along with 4 of his buddies in SOA leather jackets, in true biker gang form. *insert rapid heartbeat here*
I’ve never done a cake covered in black fondant with motorcycles and fire on it but I thought… this could be fun! It was completely out of my comfort zone and the mere thought of not meeting her expectations and FAILING terrified me. I’ve been trying to create my own design styles because every cake designer I admire have their own “style”. I think I know what my style is now — sculpting cute characters!
I know I’ve been quiet for the past few weeks but that means I’m SUPER BUSY! New site will be live soon so stay tuned for that! In the meantime, follow me on Instagram (missjennchao) or Facebook to get updates!
This past weekend was CRAZY BUSY with tons of birthday celebrations, 4 CAKES (!!!) and a trip to the states tomorrow for (yep!)– another celebration. That will be cake #5.
I gifted myself with a CANDY CRUSH cake this year because… I’m a nerd like that.
My heart gasped when I cut it. Will post more details later. Have an amazing long weekend! xo
Passion Fruit Twinkie Cupcake
Vanilla cupcake with twinkie cream topped with pucker-up passion fruit buttercream — SO. ADDICTIVE!
This hungry dinosaur is attacking Eason’s cake even before the birthday boy gets to see it! This dinosaur guy took me SO long to sculpt but it was definitely worth it because that was Eason’s one request (to have a T-Rex on it!). He looks more like Puff the Magic Dragon, don’t you think? I should stop thinking about him or his song will be playing in my head the whole night!
Noah’s communion cake from last week. The blue + custard yellow colours were made to match the colours on his invitation.
