Top Ten Cakes of 2008 (2008)

As we close out 2008, we have one last best-of list. This list is a best-of compilation across all cakes and cupcakes we posted in 2008. The cakes were chosen based on a combination number of views and number of comments.

We want to thank our families, friends, employees, customers and visitors to this blog for helping make 2008 a great success. There were many highlights in 2008 and my favorite moments would have to be the two Food Network challenges we competed in and our appearance on Martha Stewart Wedding Cake special. All in all it was a successful year for Pink Cake Box and I want to thank everyone for their support!

#10 Pink & Brown Baby Shower

“Ezekiel” the Sheep returns as number #10 in our top 10 cakes of 2008.

#7 Bar Mitzvah Cake

I was really impressed with the entire setup for this Bar Mitzvah at the Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, NJ. The event’s theme was “pen & ink” and we hand painted panels on the cake with designs and numbers to resemble a calligrapher’s work.

#6 Butterfly Wedding Cupcake Tower

    I love your site, love your cakes they are simply magnificent! I especially love your Fall cake and the Tim Burton Nightmare Groomsman cake. If my son were to get married now, he’d probably try to talk his fiance into getting that one as a wedding cake. I love them all!!

    I’m sending you best wishes for 2009 to be an even bigger year than the last for you and your business.
    Thanks for all your work on this blog to keep us updated with your beautiful creations, it truely inspires me and gives me strength each time I have a family wedding cake to make since I don’t do it on a regular basis. I’ll be doing 1 for July this year with a scottish theme.
