Thank You Everyone!

It is with mixed emotions that Frostings by Judy will be closing as of January 2017. It has been such a joy getting a chance to create beautiful memories with so many wonderful clients over the years. But all good things must come to an end... or at least for a long pause to sit back and reflect on such an amazing journey.

Sweet Regards,
Judy

Our Cake Walk Cake!

Introducing....our Winning Cake, "The Cake of Life"!!  

Here's a bit about our special couple, Katie and Jamie's story and how our cake design came to be.

They met in London as flatmates, fell in love and then moved to Canada.  They love playing sports and games, including cycling, golf, tennis, to name a few.  They wanted the story of their life to be embodied into their cake so we figured we'd start off with where they came from and have landscapes of the key London attractions around the base of the cake.  Our next tier tied the British and Canadian flags together.  Then our most fun tier was the story of their life, from the door of their flat to their hobbies, followed by their flight to Canada all the way to their wedding.  The top of that tier which is hard to see here is a golf club with the greens moulded in the shape of KJ (their initials) with a path circling the golf course and a miniature white chocolate bicycle on the path.

I wanted to display some wedding romance since it is a wedding cake after all, so using their wedding colours of navy and yellow, I designed the upper portion of the cake to be a  wedding cake for their gardenesque, golf club wedding.  I used a trellis styled design with yellow and white flowers topped by their monogram.  

What you may not know is that the couple planned to play a match of soccer after their reception.  She was going to wear yellow running shoes, and he soccer cleats.  I tied their laces to signify the tying of the knot on top of the soccer ball topper.

The couple loved our cake and the representation of their lives.  The 360 degrees of viewing around the cake was surely going to make it a discussion piece at the wedding.

Thanks Katie and Jamie for letting us design your special wedding day cake!

Frostings by Judy Takes the Cake!

After a long and exhausting, but none the less exciting competition, Judy won over the judges with her elaborate cake design and took home the top prize last night on Cake Walk: Wedding Cake Edition. The show aired on October 12th at 9pm on Slice™, but if you missed the episode it re-airs today and you can also check www.slice.ca for additional air dates and to watch clips from the show online. The episode is #1007 : Cake of Life.

Internationally adored comedienne and actress Caroline Rhea returned to Canada to host the show — a new high-stakes cake design competition series, where Canadian cake designers race against the clock to create a dream wedding cake for one lucky couple. Joining her is a panel of expert judges to determine the winner each week.

The all-star judging panel features Toronto cake designer to the stars Alexandria Pellegrino, owner of Cake Opera Co., who recently designed Nicole Ritchie’s wedding cake; David MacCarfrae, owner of David Cakes of Distinction, and a pioneer in the art of cake decorating with high profile royal clients such as Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson; and Gordon Bailey, executive chef and owner of Lot 30 in PEI with a stellar record in the restaurant industry, a keen eye for detail and a biker personality.

Each cake designer works to meet the couple’s desires and wedding theme. With a sweet $5,000 up for grabs and the chance to have their work showcased on the couple’s big day, these professional designers, who hail from across the nation, are pushing cake boundaries in a way Canada has never seen before.

"Thanks to everyone who watched our WINNING episode of Cake Walk tonight (WOO HOO!). Thanks to my amazing assistant Vik the Chef and to our families and friends who helped throughout the whole process. We couldn't have done it without you!"
LOVE, JUDY FAUTEUX-GIBSON
