A cornflour blue, scalloped buttercream cake featuring a fondant flamingo cake topper. We love the simplicity of this one, and how it's been put together on this gorgeous dessert table by Mon Tresor.
A simple baptism cake for Jacob, featuring a pearl crucifix cake topper and little booties. This cake is an extended 7 inch cake and serves approximately 40 coffee/ 20 dessert size portions.
Another take on our 'Aidan' cake, this time in shades of blue and green for Mason's 1st Birthday. Featuring a 3-tier chevron cake and matching cupcakes and cookies in the classic chevron and bow tie theme.
We had a bit of a mixed bag this week: First up we have the 'Eva' Minnie Mouse cake for CJ, including matching cupcakes and cookies (not pictured). Next, yet another version of our 'Isabella' cake, featuring a ruffled bottom tier for Lucia. And finally we finished off with a custom school bus cake and matching cookies for Paris' 2nd birthday. Couture Cupcakes & Cookies hopes that you all had an enjoyable celebration, and we hope you enjoyed your sweet treats as much as we loved making them!

A 3-tier nautical themed cake based on Couture Cupcakes & Cookes 'James' design. This time we've added ombre 'waves' to the bottom tier and a bunting to the top tier in coordinating colours. Keepsake clay figurine by Figurines by Niki, made to match Lachlan's baptism invitation.
A sweet and simple sprinkle cake for a client that is a huge fan of 100s and 1000s! The bottom tier was an double-barrel 8" cake covered in silver leaf, and finally we used a simple white bow to finish it off.
Two of our most popular come together for this creation: Chevron is by far the most requested design, and Leo seems to be the boy's name of choice at the moment! So here we have Leo's chevron christening cake, featuring colours that I didn't think would work that well together but am glad to have been proven wrong :-) Custom lion cake topper by Figurines by Niki x
Couture Cupcakes & Cookies had the pleasure of designing and creating this 4-tier christening cake for little Aidan. Featuring a grey and mustard yellow chevron pattern and a stand-out red bow tie on Aidan's initial, it's the first square cake I've covered to date and definitely won't be the last!
The chevron design made popular by Missoni is still proving to be extremely popular, as is the mix of gold and silver together! Justin's christening cake features three tiers of cake with a fourth floating tier iced in black fondant. The top tier is hand painted in antique gold lustre, and the chevron pattern colours include mustard yellow, grey and an accent strip in latte. Made to match a dessert table styled by Mon Tresor, please click here for more gorgeous images x
Our most popular cake by far! We have made much of the same of this design, along with many other different versions. This particular design features 4 sugar peonies and another of Top This Designs beautifully crafted cake toppers, a pearl encrusted crucifix.
