Effective February 28, 2013 -- BABYCAKES will no longer be accepting orders. Shannon has moved on to pursue her career as a pastry chef which unfortunately leaves little time for other work. Orders - IE. weddings, and other events booked previous to February 28th will (of course) be fulfilled.  
I'd like to personally thank everyone that has helped jump start a passion for something that will be my life long profession. Your business, support and love has been and always will be appreciated beyond explanation. 
Spread the Sugar!

buried in buttercream and babies...

It's been a scrabillion years since I've updated this thing. It's been so long that I'm having a difficult time figuring out the new Blogger layout. 
Obviously, things have been a little bit hectic for lots of reasons. The first, being the birth of our third baby(cake); albeit he's not truly edible, he's certainly delicious. He makes it difficult to get anything accomplished other than was is absolutely necessary because you just want to stare at him all day and kiss his sweet face. See?

BABYCAKES also picked up a sponsorship of our local baseball team, The Southern MD BlueCrabs and that's taken up a large chunk of our weekends. Baseball cupcakes and custom cakes with their logos have been fun to make. 

Spring and Summer Weddings as well as several large events with a great amount of creative liberties have kept things interesting and helped me grow quite a bit. I love the clients that just say -- go with it. Do what you think will look awesome. Don't get me wrong. I love all of our clients, but it's a ton of fun to be able to really dig deep into those creative hallways and see what comes out. I'm working on an awesome wedding cake topper for a wedding sweets tower this weekend. Fingers crossed the vision in my brain and on the paper come to fruition. 

The website has finally been updated, and will soon have new photography as we've booked a sweets shoot with BB Shots Photography. She's pretty much perfection in her art form. I can't wait to see what comes out of the shoot and I'm racking my brain for some out of the box ideas. I also edited the cupcake flavors on the site. I created a baker's dozen of flavors that I thought could satisfy the large majority of our clients. The choice to have something custom will always be available, I think that's what sets us apart from most of the other confectionery's, however, the huge amount of choices in frosting, cake, etc overwhelmed a lot of people. I'm hope the response is good to the change, so far it seems so... 

I'll follow up with a photo post this afternoon.. Cheers SugarWhores!

spring fling!

I know that it's been ages since the blog has been updated! Apologies! Between Valentine's Day and baby number 3's impending arrival - things have been quite bananas. You can expect lots of super exciting things from us this Spring. We're sponsoring the Southern MD Blue Crabs and we'll be making all of the birthday/celebration cakes for their fans -- so, if you're planning a birthday or party at the stadium you can look forward to some BABYCAKES! And, of course -- it's almost time for ice cream. I can't wait to finalize May's flavors of the month!

Unfortunately, at this point we aren't currently taking any new orders until May 15th.. please keep us in mind for your spring sugar needs and we'll look forward to fresh berries and ice cream season!

I hope that your New Year is going well SugarWhores and I'll post later in the week w/ details regarding lots of upcoming awesome BABYCAKES endeavours.
