Chandelier Cake with Dangling Crystals

It was an amazing engineering feat for our little company to build a structure that would hang a cake upside down, much less 178 servings of cake! We shouldn't say "our little company," actually as it took several companies working together to make it happen. Max and Livie provided the hook, Elite Entertainment provided the pin spot lighting and actually ended up not only letting us use their taller latter (and lent us some muscle to hold the cake in place while we fastened it(, the old guys at Ace Hardware up the street (who always put up with my crazy structure needs well), and my plastics guys at PlasticCare who go above and beyond because I bring them cookies... All in all, the clients were ecstatic and even got entertainment as we painstakingly disassembled it to take it back to the kitchen to be cut. [...]

Cake encompasses all 5 love languages

Dez, The President of The  Makery Cake Co, dives deep inside herself to attempt to explain what her business means to her, and what she is trying to help people achieve with her products. She says: Have you ever ordered something, or had something made for someone... and when you presented it to them, they cried? My business is Cake. We make people happy. We spread the cheer. We spread the love. How can I tell people you need it? You need it in your life. It's not like gas. It's not like insurance? As a small business owner, we know right now things are super, super tough. My business, in particular, is to make high-end specialty and custom cakes. I have 9 employees that count on me to make sure their rents are paid and their babies are fed. And I am having the hardest time [...]

Flowers on Cakes: Fresh vs. Sugar

Many many couples have asked for advice on whether to have fresh or sugar flowers on their wedding cake. The answer is convelluted. There aren't very many prettier things than fresh flowers for a cake, though there are many ways to achieve it incorrectly. You really do not want to give your closest friends and family gastroenteritis or worse, cancer.Here are some considerations and cautions for a safe and beautiful cake:Pesticides: The pesticide doses and types used to grow flowers are not the same as vegetable pesticides, and in some cases cause cancer when ingested. Flowers are not grown with the consideration of human consumption. Therefore, we recommend that the flowers being used for cake decoration be doused with something like a "FIT" Fruit Spray, then submerged in cool water for 30 minutes. The submersion allows for the dessolution of the chemicals as well as gets any little bugs living [...]

What’s a groom’s cake anyway?

To Groom's Cake, Or Not To Groom's Cake? So many of our couples come in and ask if they need a groom's cake, and what is it, and do they really need it?? So much of a wedding is traditional, and done just because that is "how it has always been." But traditions vary from region to region and change over time. We've found that here in Denver Groom's Cakes are fun and done in about 10% of the weddings we create. Now whether this number is skewed as we have the skill to carry out fun groom's cakes or not is a good question...? According to Wikipedia,      "a groom's cake is a wedding tradition originating in Victorian England,[1] but observed more often in the modern age in the American South. While a wedding cake may often be decorated in white and light in texture or color, the groom's cake can take a variety [...]

Great dessert/cake for health nuts!

We have the perfect dessert for those people that "don't normally eat sweets." You could even argue that it is a "healthy dessert!" OK, it's made entirely of decadent cake and frosting, but how fun is this? You have to do it!! It's really a must. Especially if it's a special occasion! It's a salad, ain't it? I can't remember where that line came from originally... but it still applies, and a party without a cake is just a meeting!! (that quote is from Julia Childs)

Amazing cake by amazing people!

Every once in a while we make a cake that is just short of a miracle. Bobby, Blake and Nicole all worked on this architectural feat to help Regis University raise funds for it's new building, The Anderson College of Business.

History of Gingerbread: During the 13th century, gingerbread was brought to Sweden by German immigrants. In 15th-century Germany, a gingerbread guild controlled production. Early references from the Vadstena Abbey show how the Swedish nuns were baking gingerbread to ease indigestion in 1444. It was the custom to bake white biscuits and paint them as window decorations. The first documented trade of gingerbread biscuits dates to the 17th century, where they were sold in monasteries, pharmacies, and town square farmers' markets. In Medieval England gingerbread was thought to have medicinal properties. One hundred years later, [...]

Honoring Our Veterans… Makery Cake Co

The Makery Cake Co wants to express our gratitude to the approximately 21 million military Veterans in the United States. In case you may not know, here are some interesting facts: In 1954, President Eisenhower officially changed the name of the holiday from Armistice Day to Veterans Day. In 1968, the Uniform Holidays Bill was passed by Congress, which moved the celebration of Veterans Day to the fourth Monday in October. The law went into effect in 1971, but in 1975 President Ford returned Veterans Day to November 11, due to the important historical significance of the date. Britain, France, Australia and Canada also commemorate the veterans of World Wars I and II on or near November 11th: Canada has Remembrance Day, while Britain has Remembrance Sunday (the second Sunday of November). In Europe, Britain and the Commonwealth countries it is common to observe two minutes of silence at 11 [...]
