Wedding Season has Begun!!!

Boy have we been busy, busy, busy at the shop!  Two weeks ago I had 8 weddings in one weekend, this weekend we have 6, and next weekend we have 8 again!  With that being said, I have LOTS of fun photos to share with you and I hope you enjoy them!

This first cake might be one of my favorites yet!  I recently hired on a new employee, Kyong, who interned with us at the shop for 2 months & right from the start I saw how talented she was at cake decorating.  She paints flawlessly & it truly has become one of my favorite touches to add to wedding cakes!

We decided to add sugar orchids to the top of the cake and Sara did an amazing job with them!

I made a large sugar ruffle at the bottom and it was all finished!

The next wedding cake I took inspiration from their wedding invitation and did the circle pattern all over the cake!  I loved it!

We then accented the cake with ruffly style anenome flowers!  Overall I loved the color combo and design!

They also wanted a lot of fun mini desserts & I have to say that their dessert tags the bride got were beyond adorable!

I have also had the pleasure of doing a lot of fun groom’s cakes lately.  This next cake was my first football helmet & I was pleasantly surprised with how it turned out!  The whole thing is cake & then we used bendable pipe to make the front of the mask.

The wedding cake that went with this groom’s cake was equally fun!  She wanted to incorporate her color scheme of copper & sage, her damask pattern, and the orchid’s & butterflies that were going to be at her wedding…and this is what we came up with!

Everything on the cake is made out of sugar!

Lastly we had the pleasure of doing another small, yet intricate cake for a recent wedding in which I just fell in love with the design.  The handpainting & sugar flower definitely make it one of a kind!  The pattern was taken off of the ring bearer pillow & I think it transferred beautifully onto the cake.

    WOW! Your wedding cakes are just awesome! So stunning and elegant! The purple sugar orchids rocks! I thought they were fresh flowers at first till i read “sugar”-orchid!

  2. Allie says:

    I cannot wait for the online store! I have always loved all your cake stands, etc!

    Absolutely gorgeous as usual! I think it is hard to choose a favorite. The circle cake is so cute…..but the hand painted cakes are gorgeous. I cannot wait for your online store. I have a cake pedestal addiction and am always looking for new ones!

    PS: what kind of material did your assistant use to paint on the cake? It looks thick, like royal icing. Did she have to outline in royal icing first and then paint with something else? Did she use some kind of stencil? They are gorgeous!!!!

    Can’t wait till the end of the month for the grand opening of your online store!

    Wonderful and dazzling. I’m not a bride, but I stalk bridal blogs and the like.
