sTORIbook Weddings Episode Tonight: A Marie Antoinette Wedding

Tuesday, December 27th, 2011

A couple months back we had the pleasure of doing two of the weddings for Tori & Dean’s new show sTORIbook Weddings and we are excited to announce that the final wedding we worked on with them is airing for the first time TONIGHT December 27th at 10/9c on the Oxygen Network.  I have to say that this is my favorite wedding yet that we got to be a part of and we made a TON of desserts and cakes for it! The theme was Marie Antoinette and we pulled out all the stops for it.  I even had a fun time filming a private cake tasting at Tori & Dean’s house for the bride and groom, which will be on the show tonight too.

We created a 5 tier dusty blue cake with lots of gold accents that was set on a table all by itself…

Heavenly Blooms created the over-the-top gorgeous flowers for the big wedding day!

Like I said, we pulled out all the stops for the grand mini dessert table that had multiple single tier decorated cakes as well.

I loved the color scheme for this wedding and it was so fun to incorporate it into our desserts…the blue and gold worked perfectly for this french macaron tower.

A Gorgeous Rustic, Elegant Wedding at The Villa!

Thursday, December 22nd, 2011

I am just in love with this next wedding that I got to be a part of!  The couple are good friends of Carissa, from JL Designs, who did all the floral design and clearly you can tell that they are have fabulous taste!  They wanted their wedding design to be early southern california history mixed with some masculine texan details.  I love the rich color scheme and the rustic touches here and there.  The talented Ashley Rose photographed the whole wedding and I love think the photos are dreamy!  The Villa at San Juan Capistrano was the fantastic venue it was held at.

For the mini dessert bar we used lots of cut glass and amber cake stands and I loved the look of it.

Some of gorgeous rentals, like this table for the dessert bar, were from Found Vintage Rentals…they are the best!

They had a special family recipe they wanted us to recreate which was a fun addition to the mini dessert bar.

For the cake we wanted to do something clean and modern, but also look rich and elegant.  We stuck with the white and gold color scheme and I decided to paint fondant braids gold and use them to wrap around the cake tiers.  Then we did a white ruffle sugar flower with a large gold center.

Scout’s 1st Birthday Party

Friday, December 9th, 2011

One thing I love about being in the wedding industry is all the amazing vendors I get to meet and sometimes even share in their families special day as well!  These gorgeous photos were taken by the amazing photographer Chenin, from Boutwell Studios! Chenin put on this fabulous rainbow birthday party for her little girl Scout’s 1st birthday!  We were lucky enough to be able to do the two cakes for her, but all the rest was Chenin’s magic :)

We based the cake design off of her invites and I just love how it turned out with the rainbow chevron pattern :)

Big Announcement: Now Shipping Sweet & Saucy Cake Lollipops

Monday, December 5th, 2011

One question that my mom and I are always asked by our customers at the bakery and our customers in other states is “When are you going to start shipping your cake lollipops?”  Well we listened too all of your thoughts and suggestions and being someone who doesn’t jump into anything without thinking it through and coming up with some cute packaging to go along with it :), we decided last year to start the BIG endeavor of shipping desserts across the country and now finally it has come to fruition.

IMG_9166

We of course enlisted the help of my talented friend Karrie Pyke, from Karrie Pyke Designs, to come up with package design and then the talented Kristin Eldridge shot some gorgeous photos of our product for us, and lastly my amazing husband Tim, from Skip Agency, brought it all to life through our new website…www.sweetandsaucypops.com!!!
