For the wedding cake LeAnn wanted it to be very romantic so we did the garden rose petal cake with the petals being a subtle blush pink color.  They put a candy bar together as well and then placed it all under gorgeous hanging lights!

One of My Favorite Cakes!

Monday, June 20th, 2011

We get to make lots of wedding cakes during the year, but certain cakes come along and make me so inspired and this cake was one of them!  I loved designing the cake based off of a wedding dress from Anthropologie’s new wedding website BHLDN and then meshing it with the style of the bride’s wedding design.  They were a wonderful couple to work with and I think their wedding just turned out dream-like.  They got married at the gorgeous Rancho Las Lomas and of course has Found Vintage Rentals to deck out the whole venue with their amazing furniture pieces & rentals.  White Haute Photography snapped the stunning images and Larissa from, Inviting Occasions, did the lovely florals.  You can check out all the other great venues down below!

Like I said this has to be one of my favorite cake designs.  It has so much texture and design, but is still modern and clean looking.  I basically did all the sugar flowers and lace molds by hand and then accented some pieces with pewter silver.  Here is the dress from BHLDN that inspired me!

Dreamy Wedding in Newport Harbor

Wednesday, June 15th, 2011

This past weekend I was at Barnes & Noble bookstore and I happened to pick up The Knot Southern California Magazine.  As I went to look through it I was pleasantly surprised to see that we were featured not one, but FOUR times!!!  To say I was thrilled is an understatement!  We are so lucky to work with such amazing planners, photographers, florists, etc and because of them I am blessed to get in these kind of features!  Leila from Be Inspired PR got us this amazing feature below and I have to say a big THANK YOU to her!

This wedding was shot by the lovely Meg Perotti and the wonderful Courtney, from Joyful Weddings and Events, pulled the whole gorgeous day off!  I get to work with Carissa, from JL Designs, quite a bit and I have to say that this might be one of my favorite weddings she has done…the florals are just breathtaking!  Courtney took the concept of a “beach wedding” to a whole new level and I loved how it all turned out!

For the cakes we did a rustic trio of cakes and I have to say I just love this simple homespun look!  We accented them with fresh peonies and with the florals from Carissa and burlap backdrop it was a match made in Heaven.

Ace Hotel Photo Shoot

Monday, June 13th, 2011

Happy Monday!  I am so happy to share this next photo shoot with you…it might be one of my favorites of all time!!!  One of my best girlfriends, Jesi Haack, wanted to do a fun shoot at the Ace Hotel in Palm Springs and I knew I had to be in on it.  I love the fun pops of color everywhere and the florals that my sweet friend Carissa, from JL Designs, created are simply stunning! Gabriel Ryan Photography shot the fabulous photos!

For the cake I was really inspired by a chevron style pillow I saw online and wanted to mimic that on the cake, so Kyong hand painted the design in various color and then we accented the top of the cake with a vibrant sugar flower!
