An Eventful Post

Well as you probably know these kind of posts come up every couple months when I have so many small events that I want to feature, so I cram them all together into one large, mega post!  There is a lot of eye candy coming up, so definitely let me know what’s your favorite!  First off I recently got to do a wedding with Jesi Haack Weddings & Sarah K Chen at The Marvimon House (which I LOVE).  I met Jessica, the bride, at The White Dress in Cornona Del Mar when we did a wedding showcase there and we definitely hit it off.  She told me her and her fiance, Curt, wanted to have an out-of-the-box kind of wedding cake.  The wanted sleek, modern, and rustic all at the same time and threw out the idea of a square cake that looked like a real block of wood, SO that is just what we did.  They had goodies on the dessert table from friends, family, and local bakeries, but we were really happy to do their special wedding cake.  Their wedding was to say the least AMAZING…it has been featured all over the wedding blog world, so I am pretty sure you have seen the photos already, but if not here is just a little sneak peak into their special day.  To see all the photos from their wedding check out this post! Thanks for the great photos Sarah!



Her bouquet is unbelievable!



Here is the fun dessert table…before and after the desserts were eaten!



A couple detail shots of the cake that I took at the bakery…




These next photos are from another recent weddings I did.  The cake is all buttercream with fresh raspberries on top.  Thanks to Bonnie Tsang for these beautiful shots.



This next cake was for a baby shower and they had an owl invitation they wanted me to grab inspiration from.  She wanted the cake to be simple and modern with some fun accents.  They were also kind enough to send me some personal photos that they took at the shower…thanks!

I also got the pleasure of providing mini desserts for Jessica Claire’s recent Shootsac party.  I loved how the set up turned out and of course I got some gorgeous photos from Jessica!



We always get lots of fun cookie orders, so here are some photos of some recent cookies we’ve done!





Now these two deadly cookies are my main addiction every day in the bakery!  My sole mission is trying to not grab one from the front of the store and eat it, but sadly I fail often!  Chocolate Chunk Cookies & White Chocolate Oatmeal Cranberry Cookies are in the shop daily, so if you are near by definitely stop in!



Well hopefully I didn’t tempt you guys too much and ruin your diet for the day…if I did, I apologize!
