Pops of Color

When I first met with the bride and her mother about 6 months ago for a consultation I automatically knew that I really wanted to book this wedding!  They were  fun, creative, and full of excitement for their big day and being from Texas and having a wedding here in California they had done their homework and found Courtney Toney, from Joyful Weddings & Events, to help plan for their wedding.  I can’t stress enough how important it is to have a fabulous planner, whether for the whole wedding process or at least just for the day of…they can make your wedding 10 times more enjoyable, creative, and memorable.  Courtney recommend Carissa, from JL Designs to our clients too and they fell in love (like they always do!).  So now I was really wanting the job and luckily they wanted me too!  This was such a fun wedding to plan for and was full of pops of color, fresh flowers, and cute details.  When I got to the venue I was blown away with the set-up that Courtney & Carissa had pulled off…it was just perfect! Here are some fabulous photos from Melissa Kelsey Photography of the day…enjoy!

I was so excited for my dessert display because I knew Courtney was making me a fabulous backdrop and Carissa blew me away with the wheat grass and fresh tulip display for my cake stand to sit on…how amazing it that!?!  I wanted to pull together all the fun pops of color and make this display delicious eye candy!  The bride loved the cake I designed while I was in Ron Ben Israel’s class last year, so since I don’t like copying exact cakes that I have done before we switched it up by changing around the color scheme, flowers, and details…I loved how it turned out and was so excited once I put it on the cake stand!

For the mini desserts we did monogram sugar cookies, mini key lime pies, passion fruit, coconut, macadamia nut tarts, mini cheesecakes with fresh raspberries, and cake lollipops.

Love these ladies…


And of course I had to snap a photo of my fabulous business partner, friend, and master cake lollipop maker…my wonderful mother!!!


I don’t know how I ever thought I could run a whole store/business without her! She, along with my whole family, has been more amazing than I could ever of hoped and dreamed for.  After pulling 36 hours straight last weekend without sleep (yes, I overbooked)  I was even more grateful for the immense amount of help my mother has been!

  16. Melody, I went to go visit my husband yesterday in L.B. He has a client off of Atlantic and the day ran longer then expected so we had dinner in town. We decided to drive to our old stomping grounds for dinner.. (we had lived in Los Altos close to the College)
    Fish and Chips.. I still think there some of the best I have ever had. :)
    While I was sitting in the car with the kids looking at some photo’s I had just taken
    I happened to glance up to see if he was close yet to bringing the food. When I saw the Sweet and Saucy Cake shop sign I immediately knew it had to be you. I remembered you living in L.B.. :) I quickly ran in hoping you where there but another darling gal was at the counter.. but she did say it was you who owned the store. “Congratulations”!!!
    What a beautiful store and display of all your gifted talents!! I haven’t been to your blog lately so I didn’t know you were now in a store front! What a fun surprise..
    Great location too!! All the success in the world to you and may His blessings abound!!

The most delicious red velvet I have ever had! I wish I had your talent. Your cakes are amazing. If only I had the money to take a class from you :( Best of luck to you. Congratulations on a wonderful business where you are able to share your amazing talents! I hope someday I get to have another taste of your red velvet cake ball lollipops.
