Carissa’s Space Invader Baby Shower

Thursday, September 29th, 2011

I am so excited to share this next baby shower with you since it is for one of my sweet wedding girlfriend’s, Carissa of JL Designs!  I am beyond happy for Carissa and Brian as they start this next chapter in their lives and to celebrate we did an over-the-top baby shower for them!  Carissa is having a little boy and loved the idea of a space invader themed shower so that is just what we gave her.  I teamed up with a bunch of my talented wedding friends to put the shower together and you can check them all out at the end of the post!

Up first the dessert bar!  We created robot cake pops, cupcakes with robot toppers, “asteroids” (white chocolate dipped donut holes), “flying saucers” (custom sugar cookies), and Kyong did a great Space Invader themed cake.

Custom Kid’s Cakes

Monday, September 19th, 2011

Well the kid’s cakes in my iphoto gallery have been stacking up so I thought I would share some recent ones we’ve done with you!  Kyong mainly heads up the kid’s cake section and I have to say she does an amazing job bringing the cake designs to life!  First up a 1st birthday party for a little rocker boy :)

This was a fun project we did recently for a 1st birthday party.  They had a whole dessert bar set up too, but I don’t have those photos yet.  We created three baby tigers for them and then a bunch of adorable baby tiger cake lollipops!

Irene is getting flawless at piped buttercream cakes and this next cake is one of my favorites…

This Mickey Mouse Clubhouse cake is a great way to pull off the theme on only a one tier cake; simple, but fun!

A Glamourous Affair

Monday, September 12th, 2011

This next wedding is pure beauty!  The couple is gorgeous, the location is divine, and the vendors they picked for their wedding pulled out all the stops!  Emily Faulknor Photography captured this lovely San Diego wedding and I even got to partner and work with my best girlfriends Karrie & Elizabeth from Posh Paperie who did all the fabulous invitations and paper design!

For the desserts and cake we were really excited to create something amazing!  The client loved a previous backdrop that Jesi Haack Design had created for us, so she actually had her father recreate it and I think it turned out great!

I loved working on this new cake design that we did…it was bold, yet elegant!

It took me quite a lot of time to do so much detail on it, but the final product was definitely worth it!

For the dessert bar we wanted it to be homestyle, but still have a touch of elegance so we went with all cut glass clear stands and even added in some fun domes too!
