This house cake will forever be my favourite! You can see it is quite amateur, but the story that goes with it is priceless! I made this cake when I lived in England, before I had kat's cakes. A young boy (one of 7 children) told his mom that he wanted a "chocolate house cake" for his birthday. That was the only present he asked for. His mother approached me, knowing that cake making was my hobby. I asked her to have her son to draw a picture of the cake he wanted. He drew a stick drawing of a house, just like you see with the cake. There were two "things" drawn in the side yard that I could not make out. When I asked him what they were, he said (in his cute English accent) "That is 2 petrol tankers". With his drawing and verbal description in mind, I created this cake. When I delivered it, I was surrounded by 7 very excited children jumping everywhere and cheering. The little boy led me to the dining room and asked me to put the cake on the table, he then closed the door, locking all his hooting siblings out of the room. He proceeded to pace around the table, very seriously, his hand on his chin, examining the cake from all angles, not speaking a word. Finally, he sat down with en ever so slight smile on his face, he leaned back in the chair and proclaimed, "Yes, this is EXACTLY what I hoped for. Maybe next time I will add a garage." This was by far and wide the best reaction I have ever received from a cake that I made!
"I was so impressed with Kat's Christmas baking and gingerbread houses that I just knew I had to ask her to create a birthday cake for my brother's 50th birthday party. The theme for my brother's birthday was Hawaii 5-0 and I had an image in mind of a small hawaiian island with a volcano, huts and palm trees. I did a quick pen drawing sketch (very basic), scanned and emailed it to Kat asking her if this was something that she could create for me. We had a few emails back and forth and I told her I trusted her artistic creativity for the volcano cake design. Well, when she delivered the cake to us on the afternoon of the party we were all blown away with the superb quality of her design, it was everything and more than I had imagined! I just can't say enough about Kat's creativity, professionalism, and great cake flavour. My husband said she gives the "Cake Boss" a run for his money for sure! Yummy for the eyes and taste buds!" -Cathy - a very satisfied customer.
Kat, You out did yourself! Not only was Brady's Spongebob cake awesome to look at, it tasted fabulous! (I am a true sucker for buttercream-then again, who isn't?) We had more comments on that cake than anything! It was the hit of the party. I can't thank you enough for all of the hard work that I know you put into this "masterpiece"! Everyone was amazed at how the cake was such an amazing replication of Sponge Bob-- with some true extra thought to details. There is not one single thing I would have changed with our cake! You have an unbelievable talent! Thank you so much for sharing that talent with us! You truly are my "cake master"! -Karin Ashworth
Feedback about personalized gingerbread houses:
I just wanted to say “Thank you!” one more time for the gingerbread house. I love, love it. It is my favourite Christmas present this year. It might even be next year's Christmas Card.
Just wanted to let you know the houses went over with a huge success!!! I think you can be expecting a ton of new clients next year and triple the order from me : )
Everyone loved the gingerbread houses we gave this year. Our house was a main attraction for visitors to our home. It was also the focal point of many conversations. Thank you so much.
Kat, you were first on my list to contact after the wedding. The cake was AMAZING, lots of compliments. That cake plate could tell some interesting stories over its 100 year old family history. Everyone loved the cupcakes and your display was beautiful. The little skirts you made really set them off. Over the course of the evening guests were able to help themselves to a second, or in some cases , including me. more!! So thank you for the all extras you made for us, we really appreciate it. The fun part was that I kept having interesting conversations around the display as people came back for more and were curious about them.
Thanks again! I will continue to sing your praises and look for excuses to get more cupcakes from you!
Sincerely, Mother of the Bride and new Mother in Law
