Cake-Topper Designer Shoe Collection

Posted in: Cake-Toppers
Cake-Topper Designer Shoe Collection

Cinderella had her glass slipper, Dorothy had her ruby slippers, and Sex in the City’s Carrie Bradshaw had a closet full, but they’ve got nothing on Oteri’s Italian Bakery.  Oteri’s is now featuring handcrafted custom, designer shoes made of fondant icing, but they’re not for your feet, they are for the top of your cake!  Trust me when I say, they look so authentic, if they fit you would wear them.

 A customer asked if we could make a high-heeled shoe to match the 3D Specialty Designer Handbag cake that she ordered.  Our fondant designer got to work – and a new cake-topper category was born.  Now we have a case full of designer shoe cake-toppers that entice the shopper and collector – each one a custom work of (mostly) edible art.  People aren’t ordering them just for their cakes, they are buying them to display in their home.

 We love our customers’ smiles when they see our designer shoe collection for the first time!  Each one is custom designed – everything from leopard skin and black patent leather with silver spikes, to pale pink lace and shoe boots with fringe.  If a shoe designer can create it, we can recreate it in miniature form, out of fondant.  Our fondant designers can custom handcraft a cake-topper shoe of your own design.

Pastry and Cookie Trays

Posted in: Specialty Trays

Can you believe it’s November already? Thanksgiving, of course – even Christmas is right around the corner. Next week we’ll be blogging about Thanksgiving-themed cakes and treats, but today we want to jump ahead and mention that our cookie and specialty trays are perfect for the entire holiday season. Christmas already? Yes. People are already asking us so we’re answering – and the orders are coming in.

We are always amazed at how popular our pastry tray is. Well, actually we’re not amazed – we love our pastries, too – mmmmm! Oh, sorry, we just closed our eyes and imagined a mini cream puff melting on our tongue. Woo – okay, let’s concentrate here (lol). And the kids – they go crazy for the éclairs and cannoli. Sticky hands and faces, shining eyes and happy hearts!

How it happens – we bake as we were taught in the family. Our original recipes, hand rolled from hand-mixed doughs. Pastries as fresh, flaky (it’s the butter!) and mouth-watering as we remember them growing up.

Our cannoli shell is a family recipe, too. 100 years young – crisp and flaky. Filled with sweet ricotta cheese and chocolate chips. All our pastries and cookies are made with real butter, eggs, sugar, flour and chocolate. Good enough for our great grandparents, good enough for us!

When we host Christmas Eve or Christmas Day and visit friends and family everyone loves our pastry trays. Oh, and our cookie trays! Not going to forget about those. The tray is so festive – colorful butter-cookies and traditional Italian cookies. And of course some biscotti as well. You can choose which cookies or we can – whatever’s easier for you.

Cookie tray or pastry tray, they come in three sizes. We help you bring the sweetness to any holiday gathering from “a few good friends” to “the gang’s all here!”

Our cookie and pastry trays are great for corporate holiday events, too. Who says you can’t have fun at work?
