Happy Valentine's Day!

The Groundhog has seen his shadow but it doesn't mean we have to suffer through the next 6 weeks!
There's a perfectly legitimate reason to celebrate in February, and I predict that you could fight off those winter chill with something sweet!

Oh who am I kidding? Living in Southern California is enough of a reason to "live, love, lax," as my son would say. Celebrate your love, your life and sunny days with a double dark chocolate raspberry cake!

For February only, The Clever Cake is offering a 6 inch double dark chocolate cake with fresh raspberry buttercream, chocolate ganache and fresh raspberries on top.

Order today!

Double Chocolate Raspberry Torte-$45

Holiday thank you gifts

I just finished 40 burnt almond tortes for a corporate client. The look so cute in the boxes! It's not too late to put in your order for a holiday hostess gift, a teacher appreciation gift or something sweet for your Christnas Eve supper with family.

Sweet Thanksgiving Desserts!

I'm so excited to offer s new creation just in time for Thanksgiving!
I'm calling this cake, "Pumpkin Spiced Praline Cake."

It combines two of my favorite holiday flavors, pumpkin and spicy, roasted pecans. Imagine a mouthful of sweet, buttery cake, tart cream cheese buttercream and crunchy, spicy pecans....YUM!

This is the dessert I'm making for myself this Thanksgiving. Can I make one for your family too?

It's available now thru Christmas, and I will be offering samples at Ladera Ranch's Christmas Tree Lighting on the Town Green, December 5.

The Clever Cake will be at Ladera's Christmas Tree lighting on December 5. Stop by our tent to try our delicious cake. We will be handing out samples until they are gone, so get there early!
I look forward to saying hello!

Mmmmmm Mini Cupcakes!

They say that everything small is big again, so why not the cupcake? Some people consider this two-bite treat to be the perfect balance of cake and buttercream.

But what are mini cupcakes really good for?

I've compiled a helpful list for you:

Low guilt diet splurge?
Toll-booth operator treat?
Summer reading list motivation (10 pages per cupcake, please).
Mid-day coffee klatch!
Date night dessert (look honey, no hands)!
Movie night sneak in (of course they fit in your purse)!
One serving of fruit (with fruit topper)!
Making friends at the playground!
"America's Got Talent" viewing party.
Shower desserts for all the people who don't eat sweets (be sure to get extra!)
A great way to say, "thanks" to someone who has done something special for you. Why not start a mini cupcake treat tree? No reason you can't celebrate your friends all year long!

Mini cupcakes are available for $15/$18 a dozen in orders of 2-dozen. One flavor per order please.

Birthday Season is Here!

There always seems to be a rise in the number of birthday cake orders right around the start of summer. If you have a summer birthday, you can enjoy the kind of outdoor fiesta that someone with a winter birthday can't consider!

The Clever Cake is booking now for birthdays coming in the next few weeks. Get your order on the calendar ASAP so that we have time to make something as special as your celebration!
