What Are Edible Cake Images?

Order an edible image cake online today

All the new rage, edible images are becoming even more popular as our bakery allows customers to choose to add this customized detail to both cakes and cupcakes. There are many options to the designs we can create for your party and we’d love to make it extra special with a replicated photo for that special someone.

Cakes:
Edible images have been around for a while are a sure way to make an impression on the guests at your next party. Typically placed on sheet cakes, these extra designs are perfect for any square or circle cake and can be cut to any shape. Typically printed on a 8”x10” piece of edible sugar paper, this topper is a perfect addition to our delicious cakes.

Cupcakes:
More recently, we’ve printed edible images to be toppers on cupcakes. These “disk” like wafers sit comfortable on top of our fluffy buttercream and garnishes. They are typically presented as photos or logos for anniversaries or corporate events.

Cookies:
We’ve yet to met anyone to turn down one of our buttery sugar cookies, and many of our corporate clients in Columbus, Ohio request these treats to special executive meetings or events. These are also a great favor/treat to pass out at conventions with your company logo – everyone will remember your name after eating a tasty treat.

If you’ve still gone without trying a dessert with an edible image, here’s a little more detail about what to expect in terms of texture and flavor.

Taste:
Many customers claim there is no taste to an edible image. The image itself is printed using a specialized printer which only is for edible use, and has edible ink cartridges which are etched onto a edible paper – commonly known as sugar sheets. These pages are typically made up of various sugars and were once produced from rice paper.

Texture:
As the panels are being printed, they are stiffer in consistency but turn soft and almost have no texture after being applied to buttercream. The icing helps moisturize the paper giving it a seamless look, as if it was painted directly on top of the cake.

If your cake is covered in fondant, the edible image will keep most of its original texture, but is very pliable and can be molded around sharp edges and smooth corners.

If you have any questions about the speciality designs we can customize for your next party, give us a ring and we’ll be happy to answer all of your comments or concerns. Please contact one of our representatives at Fate Cakes (614-219-9429).

Super Bowl XLVIII Prep – Game themed food

The big game is less than a week away and if you’re hosting that annual party you’re probably looking for some inspiring game day food options. It’s no surprise that every guest will be expecting fun and innovative, but tasty treats all day long as you celebrate the most anticipated game of the year. No matter how many people you’re expecting at your house or venue, our bakery team has compiled a list of simple and delicious items to serve this Sunday!

We’re obsessed with Pinterest, just like every other person in the world. Enjoy these ideas taken from Pinterest. Check ’em out and find some new ideas online for your big party!

Appetizer Frenzy!
As a host, from the time your guests arrive you should have some small finger food available for everyone to snack on before the game starts – and of course while the game is on. It’s not rocket science to know most of the food you share during the game will be small items that everyone will be snaking on while they cheer on their favorite team. It’s actually not as important to have a sit down dinner menu, just have many small options and LOTS of adult beverages!

Super Bowl Queso Dip1. Glorious Glorious Cheese – every party needs a queso dip – we’re pretty sure it’s the law. The more cheese varieties you have in your queso the better. Don’t forget about the salsa which adds extra flavor and spice. Put it in a slow cooker for easy serving and to keep it warm. Yuummm!

Super Bowl Buffalo Chicken Bites2. Buffalo Chicken Bites – let’s face it, your party revolves around what food is appealing to a man. Well, add chicken, cheese, buffalo sauce, bake in a small pasty and serve – could it get any easier? We don’t think there is a simpler plan and you’ll have your guests (men) cheering with a mouth full!

Super Bowl Pizza 3. Pull Apart Pizza – does this really need a description. By the photo alone we expect instant drooling so just imagine what you’re guests will be thinking about when they see this tempting tempting pepperoniappetizer.

Super Bowl Chicken Tenders 4. Fried Chicken – again, need we say more. This list of items is a dead giveaway for any party where men will be present. But then again, what American doesn’t like fried chicken tenders? So easy to make and even more tasty. Think you can make this the talk of your party?

Super Bowl Desserts5. Dessert Appetizer? Looking for a little sweet and salty treat to switch up the menu. This simple but so savory chocolate dipped potato chip can be served at the beginning of the party, middle, or at the end. Just make sure to prepare double the batch and be prepared for doggie bag requests!

No matter how many guests you’re inviting this Sunday, sometimes you just want someone else to do all the work. Honestly, we’re sure everyone wants to give the reigns over to have a qualified team do all the decision making and slaving in the kitchen. If you’re like all of us who just wanna enjoy the game and hang out with your friends and family, give our team a call to order our gourmet cupcakes (614) 219.9429. We also have cake pops and cakes available for any party size.

5 Tips For The Perfect Baby Shower Cake

Baby Shower Ribbon Cake

Babies are a blessing and at Fate Cakes we’re happy to help celebrate special events within the Columbus, Ohio and surrounding area. We’re delivering gourmet cupcakes and cakes all day long to residential or a specific venue for special events, especially a baby shower.

If you’re planning a baby shower or you are the lucky mom-to-be, we’ve got the perfect desserts for your special day. Our team is here all week long to discuss your themed party and any special requests. Below are some tips our creative folks have compiled to help you choose the perfect baby shower cake.

Theme: First of all it’s important to plan for the most perfect theme. This will be the foundation of your party and will help you coordinate decorations, invitations, party favors, food and most importantly the dessert. We find social media engines are usually the best resource to find a good theme. Keep in mind the season that you’re planning on giving birthday; as well as, what month you’d like the party to happen. (If you’re giving birth in winter it might be nice to have seasonal items for colder weather to allow you to use these belongs once your little bundle of joy is brought back from the hospital).

Cake Flavor: After you’ve picked a custom theme, the next item on the list of what type of cake you’d like to showcase for your special occasion. The style of the cake should be determined by the theme you’ve chosen in the previous step, but at Fate Cakes we offer countless flavors. We can even customize the colors of the cake to be personalized for the sex of your child. If you’re surprising your guests and telling everyone the sex of your child at the time of the baby shower, we can even customize special cupcakes which will feature color coated inside of the cake. This will allow everyone to bite into the cake and be surprised to see if the center is either blue or pink!

Size Of Cake: The most common question we get at Fate Cakes is “How big should my cake be?”. We recommend to always order a larger cake allowing for guests to take more than one piece and even take extra pieces home. We also like to think it’s better to have more than enough than a few attendants who walk away without any cake at all. The size of your cake will also be dependent on the style of your cake. If you’d like a custom shape (Non square / circle) then our team will have to discuss your project in more detail to determine the actual size. Give us a call (614) 219.9429 to talk to our lead designers about a custom cake style.

Fondant / Buttercream: It’s not surprising that most people have never heard of fondant. If you’re one of the average, don’t worry, this is another common question we are asked at our bakery. (To read more about fondant, read our previously posted article HERE). Deciding on if you’d like your cake to be a traditional buttercream or modern cake with fondant is a fairly easy decision. What we tend to tell customers is if you’re looking for a cake with sleek sides and sharp edges and are most worried about the presentation of the cake, then fondant is for you!

Cake Topper: Most cakes do not have a topper. Some themes will need the added presentation of a cake topper and in that event our team can discuss edible and non-edible options which can be included in the cake quote. While making your order mention that you’d like more information about our toppers and a lead designer will give you all the details needed to determine if a topper is the best choice for your cake.

To order your cake please give us a call. Our design team can be reached by calling (614) 219.9429. Don’t forget that we have a designated team who will deliver your order directly to any venue or event. Ask about our delivery services today!

Local women hit sweet spot riding the cupcake craze

TIFFANY L. PARKS | Daily Reporter Published: 12/20/2013

Marie O’Stroske was working as a full time senior project manager in the Short North and doing freelance web design and web development when she decided to go full throttle with her bakery, Fate Cakes, in March.

Cupcakes are the star at Fate Cakes, a direct delivery company based out of Columbus, which also specializes in cake pops, cakes and will soon unveil a cookie line.

“Our cupcake menu has definitely put us on the map,” O’Stroske said, highlighting her red velvet, chocolate lovers and buckeye-inspired flavors as fan favorites. “We offer a variety of items including specialty cakes but people can’t get enough of the simplicity of cupcakes.”

O’Stroske, who offers delivery services six days a week to the greater Columbus area, said cupcakes make up the lion’s share — 75 percent — of products coming from her bakery.

“I think popular shows like TLC’s Cupcake Wars and other cupcake shows have really helped our industry grow into a fun and creative art which people are excited to embrace,” she said. “You can customize cupcakes and have the option of many flavors per dozen. You don’t have that much flexibility with cakes. Plus, cupcakes are cute.”

….

O’Stroske also expressed optimism about consumer demand for cupcakes.

“I can’t tell the future, that’d be an amazing superpower though, therefore, I can’t speak about if we’re living in a cupcake fad. What I can predict is Columbus will always need a specialty dessert shop and cupcakes will always be tasty,” she said.

“No matter the outcome of the supposed cupcake craze, I am willing to bet on those superpowers that Fate Cakes will continue to deliver our gourmet desserts all around Columbus. We’re not going anywhere.”

Big 10 Championship Cake Giveaway – WTTE Fox 28

Big 10 Championship Cake

Good Day Columbus Weekend show contacted our team AGAIN to give away another cake for a lucky viewer of the morning shower. During the month of November, our bakery had the opportunity to showcase our OSU vs Michigan cake on the GDC show and the phones were ringing off the hook!

This specific cake was a custom design focused on the Big 10 Championship themed show in December. We were contacted for the second week in a row because viewers just could not get enough of our custom cake designs. We were even more excited to create this special fun design and happy to celebrate our Buckeyes traveling to Indiana for the Big 10 Championship.

Unfortunately, our “cake powers” were not strong enough to give the Buckeyes all the luck to come out with a win in the Lucas Oil Stadium, but they put up a fight against the Michigan State Spartans.
