Sweet Design Company: Happy Mother's Day

By Catherine McCulloch

I grew up with a wonderful mom who loved to bake. She was famous in her community for her chocolate chip cookies (see earlier post for recipe) but she could whip up anything from a buttercream frosted marble birthday cake, delicate lemon squares, ooey gooey carmel squares, flakey scones to my all time favorite, Hello Dollies stuffed full of chocolate, pecans and coconut. The first time I stepped into Bake Sale I felt like I was back in my mom's kitchen.

The aroma of just baked treats greets you at the door. An assortment of pretty cupcakes in 7 different flavours, decadent bars, delicious cookies and lovely cakes call your name. Their products are fresh, made from scratch and you really can taste the difference. The only dilemma for me is the choice between coconut and chocolate. And don't even get me started on the tart lemon drop cake!

It was certainly our pleasure to design dessert tables for the windows in both of Bake Sale's Toronto locations to showcase their gorgeous occasion cakes and wonderful desserts. The theme for this sweet table was a floral Mother's Day display in pink, orange and yellow.

The centerpiece is a 3 tiered Blossom Cake in ombre shades of pink and orange. To continue the floral theme, Bake Sale created daisy and dahlia sugar cookies as well as rose and hydrangea topped cupcakes. They also made buttercream swirl cupcakes decorated with tiny dragees to repeat the tiny white dot pattern on the middle layer of the cake. We added floral cupcake toppers for a little more punch and to send a message of Mother's Day love. To provide a little salty counterpoint to all the sweet treats there were white chocolate dipped pretzels with colorful candy drizzle. Cakepops in the same color palate were decorated with bright straw flags and coordinating ribbon.

To all the fabulous moms who put in so much time, effort, committment and most of all love - Happy Mother's Day!
