Sweet & Saucy Shop’s First Ever Demo Day!

March 10th, 2016

Last Sunday, Sweet & Saucy Shop’s team of cake instructors hosted a day of cake demos for a lovely group of ladies from all over SoCal. Though we have been hosting hands-on classes for years, this was the first time we have offered demos and overall it was a lovely day of caking, socializing and snacking. The day started in the morning with our head decorator, Kyong Bell, demonstrating how to hand-paint some Rifle Paper Co. inspired florals and faces on a 3-tiered cake topped with matching wafer paper flowers.





Kyong started with a blank 3-tiered canvas with a petal-shaped bottom tier. Next she expertly mixes edible paints and starts painting her florals.





The finished hand-painted cake complete with Rifle Paper Co. inspired wafer paper flowers. Can you guess who Kyong used as inspiration for her painted faces?


The next demo was by Frances Mencias, master buttercream decorator. She demoed how to apply petals to create Sweet & Saucy Shop’s signature garden rose cake.








Frances has completed dozens of garden rose cakes since she started working in our buttercream department. You can see her expertly place her petals to create the perfect garden rose.




Next, Kasey Loya demoed hand-lettering and calligraphy for cakes. Students learned how to paint in a variety of colors and metallics and how to transfer and paint some nearly perfect lettering.








As many of you already know, Sweet & Saucy Shop has recently launched a website devoted completely to cake and dessert classes both in-store and online, Sugar Schoolhouse (www.sugarschoolhouse.com). There are many PDF tutorials already listed for sale with more on the way. We will also be putting together a calendar of future classes and posting it on Sugar Schoolhouse’s website shortly. We hope to see you all in one of our future classes! Bye for now!


Heart Eyes for Our New Georgette Packaging Macaron Boxes

February 8th, 2016

As a business owner, I can’t stress exactly how important branding and packaging are. Not only does it represent your business and allow your personality to shine through, but it houses your products and keeps them safe, which is especially important from a bakery perspective.  We were COMPLETELY overjoyed when we came across Georgette Packaging on Instagram, since their products are the perfect marriage of beauty and functionality! I mean, would you just look at that rose gold foiling?

It’s even more gorgeous in person, and embodies Sweet and Saucy Shop perfectly! Their inventory isn’t limited to only custom macaron packaging, either.   They create beautiful, completely custom foiled or printed cupcake and cake boxes, and also insulated cups if you serve drinks! The possibilities are endless and quality is everything you would expect and more.

We have major heart eyes now that we’ve found our perfect macaron packaging and can’t wait for our customers to have these lovely boxes to give yummy macarons to their loved ones on this Valentine’s day.

Listen up men! We’re about to reveal how to earn some serious brownie points with your wife.  Let’s get real though, your husband is most likely not reading this… and in order to get the gift you really want from him, you’re going to need to “hint” at it, or basically just straight out tell him.   If you’re a mama with a sweet tooth, or know a mom who can’t get enough sweet treats,  we have some old favorites as well as some newer menu items that would be perfect for any loving mother in your life.  Don’t be afraid to treat yourself, either!  (All pricing info will be listed at the bottom of this post.)

If you’re looking for something similar, but of a smaller scale, our regular and mini buttercream rosette cupcakes are a great option.


Layered cake in a jar is always super popular around the holidays! It’s the only time you can really buy them individually without pre-ordering a batch.  They sell out quickly at our front counter, so if you aren’t adding them to your order, be sure to arrive early to get yours! Flavors shown here are chocolate salted caramel and funfetti.

Easter Desserts

March 25th, 2015

Can you believe it’s already that time of year again? Spring has sprung and we’ve got Easter treats hopping your way! We have tons of options no matter how many loved ones you want to get hopped up (get it?!) on sugar or what your budget is.  The best part is that our cute chick, bunny, and Easter egg desserts are absolutely perfect for any age group: put them in an Easter basket, take them to share at church or to your family’s Easter breakfast, brunch or dinner and I guarantee the only thing they will love more than the Sweet and Saucy treats is YOU for bringing them! It’s a win, win, right? This year in addition to the more traditionally decorated desserts that you’d expect to see, we’ve added some florals to the mix.  What I love about these is they would work for any sort of spring-time party and aren’t limited to just Easter, which is nice.  We have some gorgeous piped floral buttercream cupcakes, hand painted floral Macarons by our Macaron queen, Jess Marvel, and last but not least, a pretty, textured buttercream cake with hand piped springtime florals on top.  These would all make for a seriously beautiful Easter dessert spread! Side note: just in case you’re curious about prices, all Easter pre-order pricing will be listed at the bottom of this post.



Floral Easter Cake

How adorable are these hatching baby chick and gold leaf meringues made by our bakery manager, Jenn and cake decorator, Kasey? They come packaged in sets of four and tied with a pretty coral bow. Perfect for gifting!



Birds nest cupcakes, anyone? They come in both regular and mini sizes for momma birds and their baby birds.



Baby chick cake pops and their Easter egg siblings resting snug in their nest.  Crinkle paper in our pretty pink bowls is a cute nest-like display for these little guys.  If these pops don’t have something to prop them up they will lay flat on their backs.  Need to rent some cake stands or bowls for your Easter dessert table? Contact us at either of our two locations and we’ve got you covered!


Our classic cake pops with festive sprinkles and sanding sugar are always in season, no matter what holiday or time of the year


We will have two sizes of Rice Krispy Treats available for pre-order this year.  The mini eggs come in packs of four (great for little hands!), and the large flower and eggs are sold individually. Each one comes dipped in white chocolate and is then drizzled with more white chocolate and covered in sprinkles or sanding sugar. Who says Rice Krispy Treats are only for kids? That is a complete myth!



Here is a little piece of advice: you can never have too many macarons at a party.  One turns in to four and before you know it, they’re all gone. But hey, no one’s judging. Jess decorated a variety of macaron eggs for you to choose from in addition to the chicks!  They can be made any flavor your heart desires.



macarons-4 Not everyone is crazy about sugar cookies with royal icing– but have you tried ours?  If you’re not a believer, I think we can change your mind.  Even if you aren’t set on having them at your party, they’ll be sure to please your guests and sit extra pretty before they are devoured. 314-10-1

314-9     I wasn’t joking when I said we have tons of options.  This year’s pricelist is 3 pages of Easter goodness. Make sure you all put in your orders as soon as you possibly can, as we need time to prepare these special treats for you and that weekend will fill up super fast! Have you decided what to pick for your Easter get-together yet?  If you need help deciding, be sure to give us a ring at either our Long Beach or Newport Beach shop.  Don’t forget that Sweet and Saucy Shop Long Beach & Newport Beach is closed on Easter Sundays so get your orders in for pick up Saturday!EASTERpricelist1 pricing2 pricing32

Happy Easter everyone!!!  To order you can email us at info@sweetandsaucyshop.com OR call our LB location at 562.595.1100 and our NB location at 949.715.0920
