I have been waiting for what seems forever to finally be able to say that my dream of sharing my love of gorgeous cake stands, platters, domes, etc has finally come true with the opening of our new online store SWEET & SAUCY SUPPLY!  I have received hundreds and hundreds of emails over the years asking where I find all of my lovely dessert displays and now I am able to share that with you!  You too can now have fabulous additions to your dessert tables with the click of a button…I know what’s going to be on your Christmas List this year!  Thanks to Ashley Rose for the beautiful photos below!

I teamed up with the talented Jeni from Found Vintage Rentals for a recent photo shoot!  I absolutely LOVE working with Jeni on weddings and events because the way that she styles her rentals is to die for!  When I was at her studio I literally was drooling over everything!  I was so lucky the Jeni’s husband Joel, owner of Studio EMP, said he would shoot it for me…how lucky was I! I can’t thank them enough for collaborating on this shoot with me and I hope that next time you are in need of fabulous rentals or photography you check them out!

Miley Cyrus’ 18th Birthday Party

Monday, November 22nd, 2010

Well as most of you know Miley Cyrus did an amazing job at the AMA’s last night and then went off to a huge 18th Birthday Celebration at Le Trousdale in West Hollywood!  We were beyond excited to be able to do the dessert spread and birthday cake for her!!!

We were told that she loves dream catchers and the bohemian style, so we focused the whole dessert table around that.  We did a tier birthday cake with hand carved dream catchers, sugar feathers, and sugar turquoise beads.  I wanted to stick with the color scheme of brown, gold, white, and turquoise and I loved the final outcome.  Not only did we do a giant cake, but we also did a custom dessert bar with over 500 desserts!  It was quite a spread!  I have to thank my dear friend and the fabulously talented Jesi Haack, from Jesi Haack Weddings, for the perfect backdrop she created for me!  She hand made all of the golden dream catchers and made the backdrop with ivory burlap and lace…I LOVED it!!!  Of course my wonderful girls, Elizabeth and Karrie, from Posh Paperie created the dessert cards that fit flawlessly with the whole look!

Well enough talking…here are the photos that are already all over the internet!

At the shop my mom, who is also the co-owner of Sweet & Saucy Shop with me, is know for being the Queen of Cake Lollipops so she did Red Velvet and Vanilla Pops and dusted some with golden shimmer!

This was such a fun experience and I’m so glad all of us ladies at Sweet & Saucy Shop got to be a part of it!  Happy Birthday Miley!

Modern Photo Shoot

Thursday, November 18th, 2010

I absolutely love getting to do photo shoots with talented people and this shoot was definitely one of them!  I teamed up with my dear friends Courtney, from Joyful Weddings & Events, Carissa, from JL Designs, and Elizabeth & Karrie, from Posh Paperie for this amazing opportunity!  The fabulous wedding photographer, Jessica Claire, asked us to do a mock wedding set up for one of her photo workshops and I have to say that I think we went to town!  I absolutely love this modern, bold look for a wedding!  I thought it would be fun to start out with dessert photos for a chance, so here they are!

Featured in Southern Weddings Magazine

Tuesday, November 16th, 2010

I am so excited to share with you the shoot we did for Southern Weddings Magazine!  This magazine is definitely one of the most stunning wedding magazine out there and I was so honored to be featured in it.  The team of people I worked with was nothing short of a dream team!  The talented Nancy, from So Happi Together, and Melissa from, The Loveliest Day, planned, designed, and put together the whole shoot!  Jeni, from Found Vintage Rentals, brought all of her fabulous vintage furniture and props…she makes me so jealous with her collection!  I was so into all the paper goods that Mae Mae Paperie designed for the shoot! The simply lovely Megan from Honey & Poppies did the luscious florals and Justin & Amelia, the amazing husband and wife team from Amelia Lyons Photography, simply blew me away with the photos!

I absolutely loved the color scheme for the shoot and we had fun pulling in lots of design detail with the desserts.  We did a main center cake with white on white lace and then two side cakes in chocolate ganache frosting.  I adored all the signage that Mae Mae Paperie made for me and thought it looked so cute on my desserts!

This next cake is a completely different style…modern, bold, and very unique!  We based the cake off the design of the bride & groom’s invitation and I was very excited to see it come to life.  Did I mention that is was HUGE!

This dahlia sugar flower that my sister made has to be one of my favorites ever and the sugar threads that we made brought the design full circle.

Lastly, this mustard yellow vintage lace cake was a pleasure to make.  Kyong and I loved the look of this cake and placing it on a wooden log pulled it all together!
