You've patiently waited while I teased you with things to come..... and now your patience has paid off.

I have been spending the last few months practicing and perfecting our Cake Bites recipe and look. While my waistline isn't appreciative, I'm sure you will be!

As you can see, Cake Bites are delicious little bites of cake that are covered in chocolate. Check out our flavors page for a list of what we have to offer. It seems as though every flavor is a pretty big hit, so I'd suggest a variety box for your first order.

Cake Bites are a great way to announce the gender of a new baby too! All you have to do is ask us to color the chocolate striping blue or pink (or a combo if you are having multiples!).

Cake Bites are also available for shipping to out of town friends and family. Your favorite solider might enjoy some delicious Cake Bites as well. As of now, we are using USPS flat rate shipping to keep costs down. The cost to ship a box of 1 dozen, the shipping cost is $5.00, however we can ship anywhere from 2 dozen up to 6 dozen for $10.00 shipping cost.

Not only is this a delicious treat, but it is also something that you will only find here at Indy Cakes. Call or email us today with your order. We will be open on Tuesday Jan 5th and can have your Cake Bites order ready for pickup that day.

After you've had your first taste, please let me know if it was worth the wait.

Happy New Year!!

Happy New Year!!

2010 is almost here, and so is our 1 year anniversary! We are enjoying our time off, but you might notice that there have been a few more pages of cake photos added to the website. We have added 2 more pages of occasion cakes and one more page of wedding cakes.

We are also preparing for the Here Comes the Bride Bridal show at the Crowne Plaza on Jan 31st. We are creating a few more display cakes as well as getting our photos organized.

Next week's post will contain info and pictures of our new product, so stay tuned!! We have offered samples to a few customers, family members and friends, and all are eagerly awaiting more.

Three weeks in a row!

It's been three weeks now since I decided to post every week, and I'm still going strong.

We are now closed for the remainder of the year, but I promise you I am working hard on several updates and our new product launch.

For those of you looking ahead to planning a wedding in 2010, we will be participating in the Here Comes the Bride bridal show at the Crowne Plaza in Union Station on Sunday January 31st from 12-4. This is the link to the website to allow you to purchase tickets in advance:

We will have samples of our cake, several displays, and information to take home. We will also be on hand to answer any questions and set up appointments, if you'd like.

We would also like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. We are looking forward to helping make all of your family occasions a little more special with a tasty treat from Indy Cakes.

Indy Cakes is making a few updates

While we will be closed for the last two weeks of the year, rest assured we will be hard at work. We will be making a few updates to the website, fine tuning some of the new items that we will have after the first of the year, re-doing a few of our display cakes, preparing for the upcoming bridal show, and planning our 1 year annivesary celebration! We will not be returning phone messages, but we will be able to review and respond to emails. However, be patient as it may take us a few days to respond.

We would also like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Pre-New Year's resolution

Ok folks, here it is. My pre-New Year's resolution is to post one new post each week. I am setting aside and hour of time every Wednesday, so hopefully I can keep everyone updated on the goings-on inside of Indy Cakes.

I will try to have a photo or two in each post, but might not be able to on busy weeks (aren't they all busy weeks?)!

We have several new things that we are working on for the next year. Don't worry, I'm sure you will love them.

Also, we will be celebrating our one year anniversary in February (YEAH INDY CAKES!!). We are planning a minor celebration at the shop with some coupons and some freebies!!

Hopefully you will hear from me soon. If not, feel free to email and remind me to post.

We're still getting used to blogging, so we appreciate your patience. Rest assured, this post is worth the wait.

We were recently asked to help make a memorable 21st birthday cake. The request was for a 3D Ice Dragon. With a picture of the dragon in mind, we set to work. First, we practiced, then we practiced some more, then we bought a new airbrush and practiced a little bit more. We, as well as the birthday gent, were very pleased with the result.

All about the butterflies

One of the things that we love here at Indy Cakes is getting to try new and exciting techniques. One recent request was to make a wedding cake with butterflies, specifically pastel butterflies. We also try to make as much of the cake edible as possible, so we knew that we didn't want to use plastic or acrylic butterflies from a craft store. After a little practice and research, we were able to make some very realistic butterflies that were not only pretty, but also edible.

What about when my princess grows up?

Now I know that it hasn't been years since my last post, but let's fast forward to your little princess's sweet 16, shall we? Wait, you mean it seems like only yesterday when you were putting her in tiara's and tutu's and now you're trying to find a discount on her auto insurance? While I can't help you with the auto discounts, I can help you with a cake to make her sweet 16 a success. Whether you are planning a party worthy of the reality show, or just a fun night for her and her friends, we've got something for you.

If she's a fan of the zebra print, we've done several different designs that incorporated these wildly popular prints.

Or maybe she's more of a romantic, girly-girl and wants to have everything flowery and pink. We can do that too.

Lastly, if she's got her heart set on being the star for the evening, why not throw a Hollywood themed party? This cake would be the centerpiece of the night.

You're little princess....

Anyone with a young daughter, granddaughter or niece will tell you that most little girls, at some point, have visions of being a princess. Many times, these little darlings will want to have a their birthday party to have a princess theme. What princess party would be complete without a princess cake. We have many cakes for many little princesses. Here are just a few:

This little princess wanted her very own unicorn as a birthday present. While the unicorns were on backorder, a unicorn cake was more feasible option. This wonderful unicorn provides for 12 servings.

This little princess got to keep the crown, ring and earrings. This "mini-tier" cake provides for 20 servings.
While this isn't necessarily princess themed, many princesses host tea parties. You certainly can't have a tea party with a tea kettle. This pink and purple kettle has 15 servings and is covered in our delicious marshmallow fondant.

Every princess needs a crown. This pink beauty has 12 servings and can be customized in a variety of colors.

An of course, what princess party would be complete without a castle! This cake features fondant walls that can be cut and served with the cake, or you can peel them away to reveal a buttercream iced cake inside! This particular cake had 20 servings, but we can make them larger to provide additional slices.

Welcome to our blog!!!

With the launch of our retail storefront in February, we've been VERY busy. To keep everyone updated on the latest and greatest in the cake world (yes, we have our own world!!), we've decided to start a blog. This will allow us to share new techniques, creations, ideas and options available to our customers.
We hope to highlight some of our favorite cake requests as well as what we are working on that is new and exciting in the shop.

Since all blog posts are better with pictures, I'll share with you one of our most unique wedding cakes to date.

This cake was for a couple that had a Dr Seuss themed wedding/reception. Instead of your standard wedding attire, the happy couple were dressed as Thing One and Thing Two from the Cat in The Hat. The entire cake was edible, with the exception of the hand, which was styrofoam. The topper was a Lorax Tree made from gum paste.
