John Stamos Time!!!

Tuesday, September 28th, 2010

Well, at this very moment most of you are probably watching the fabulous John Stamos star on GLEE!  Lucky for us we had the pleasure of making John Stamos’ birthday cake last month!  To celebrate his special day he played with the Beach Boy’s for what I heard was a great concert.  His sweet girlfriend Leah requested we make a drum cake for him and sent us photos of his set so we could match it!  We had a fabulous time making it and we did hear that John was eating our red velvet cake for breakfast the next morning!!!

Smog Shoppe Wedding #2

Monday, September 20th, 2010

Round two of the Smog Shoppe weddings features the lovely couple Eileen & Roland!  They wanted an intricate style wedding cake with influence in design from Jonathan Adler & the Parker Palm Springs…they wanted a fun retro/lux looking cake & reception!  Caroline Tran took the gorgeous photos and I can’t thank her enough!

For the cake we did hand cut fondant pieces, fondant molds, hand painting, and piping to get this look.

Smog Shoppe Weddings!

Sunday, September 19th, 2010

One of my favorite venues for weddings & events is the Smog Shoppe!  The first time I went there for a delivery I literally fell in love with the whole vibe and look of it.  If I would’ve known about this venue back when I got married (and cut my guest count in half) I most definitely would’ve gotten married there!  I recently had two of my most creative wedding clients get married there and I loved getting their wedding photos!  First up a gorgeous wedding put on by Amber Events for Jen & Tim!  Natalie Moser took the most amazing photos and the florals done by Holly Flora were simply beautiful!  Jen got beautified by the lovely Fiore Beauty…and boy did she look great!  Of course I had to start off with my favorite photo!

French Inspired Photo Shoot

Wednesday, September 15th, 2010

I recently had the pleasure of working with Joy de Vivre, Florette Designs, & Michael & Anna Costa on a French inspired photo shoot that was featured on Style Me Pretty!  I was blown away when I saw the gorgeous photos and really loved how it all turned out!  It was great working with such talented vendors & I thought they did an amazing job.

For the wedding cake I was really inspired by a wedding dress that was completely covered in white lace & doilies with an underlying color.  I knew someday I wanted to recreate it in cake and this was the perfect opportunity.  We covered the base of the cake in a light peach color and then tediously cut out individual fondant lace pieces that were added to the cake.  It was definitely a labor of love, but I have to say I loved the finish product.

Utterly Engaged Hoedown!

Thursday, September 9th, 2010

Last month I had the pleasure of doing the dessert bar for Utterly Engaged’s 1 Year Anniversary Hoedown Party!  I had such a great time collaborating on the design and look for the table & overall I think it turned out pretty fun!  Lucia had the idea for the hanging ropes that was inspired from the Ace Hotel set up and instantly I was in love with it!  I also had the great pleasure of working with Summer from Grey Likes Weddings!  She made the whole backdrop come to life & even made me an adorable cake topper!  If you haven’t checked out her fantastic blog definitely stop by!  The lovely florals were done by Megan from Honey & Poppies…as always she created such gorgeous arrangements that complimented the table design so well! Jessica Claire was the main photographer for the party & you can check out all of her fabulous images in the current issue of Utterly Engaged!  Thanks so much Jessica!  Since this was an industry event I was lucky enough to have tons of photographers send me their photos as well so I wanted to post them as well. Check out the links at the bottom for their photography blogs!

Since I got to make the whole menu up myself I wanted to try a lot of new desserts. For the main cake I frosted it with meringue style frosting and torched it so it came out like a toasted smore’s!  The two side cakes were chocolate hazelnut nutella…yummy!

For the treats we made mini smore’s tarts, carrot cake whoopie pies, caramel nut brownies, blueberry crumble pies, my grandma’s caramel nut mix, & chocolate covered rice krispy treats!

And I love this photo I took with my iphone because you can see the fun tumbleweeds in front of the table.
