I think this first photo describes exactly how I feel about this birthday party!  I really am so blown away every time one of my favorite customers, Sarah, throws a birthday party for her children.  She has such a gift for party planning and crafting that it should be her full time job!  All of the amazing details she dreamt up below for her son Finn and daughter Scarlett’s birthday party will for sure knock your socks off…enjoy!

And not only is she talented, but I have to say this is one of the cutest little families I’ve EVER seen!

I think every child should have a picture on a pony…I remember always loving looking at my photo of myself riding on a pony…too much fun!

Sarah basically dreamt up the dessert station and cakes all herself and just placed the order with us :)  I love the rentals that she chose to rent from us…the tin ones are new that we got in and I think they fit perfectly with this party!  The other two stands I made from spray painted candle sticks and flea market antique plates.

Well as most of you know my little Blake has arrived and I am SO in love with her!  I am now SO excited to share  my baby shower that was filled with so much love from all my girlfriends!  I was also lucky enough to have Jenn from Hostess with the Mostess feature my shower today as well on her blog…you can check out her amazing post here!

These last two years I have had the great pleasure to throw lots of baby showers for my girlfriends, specifically those in the wedding industry, and I have loved every minute of it…well, my turn came around and my sweet friends threw me the most gorgeous baby shower EVER!  I was so blessed the entire day and loved every second of it!  Karrie & Elizabeth, from Posh Paperie, designed me the most dreamy invitations a girl could ask for.  Karrie did so much work for my shower and I love her tons!

I have gotten to help throw two baby showers for my Jesi Haack within these past 2 year and boy did she go all out for my shower.  She designed the entire headband making station…what an amazing idea is that and also created the ruffle backdrops for the dessert bar and drink station!

Of course I had to get my hands in on the shower a little bit once I saw the adorable invitation design, so I designed this cake after the invitation and thought up some cute new twists on mini desserts for my little blake!  Kyong & Jenna made the cake for me and all the girls at the bakery made my desserts look so great…I have such a great team!

Desert Elopement Photo Shoot

Monday, April 16th, 2012

Well you if frequent wedding blogs a lot you most likely saw the lovely post that Style Me Pretty did on this gorgeous shoot I got to be a part of last Friday!  Abby called the shoot “Vintage Desert Chic” and I quite like the name she gave it!  Megan Hartley, who took all the beautiful photos, asked me to be a part of the shoot and I jumped at the chance.  The inspiration board that Whitney, from Whit Mitt Design & Events, had come up with was breathtaking and I knew the shoot would be gorgeous!  I actually went to school with both of these ladies and I even got to do the desserts for Whitney’s lovely wedding!  She had now gone into the wedding business as well and I think she has quite the talent for it!

For the cake I wanted to veer off of the traditional white wedding cake and do a subtle taupe color for the base.  Then we accented the cake with a sugar succulent and some tiny dogwood flowers.  For the topper I had Kyong make a ball of yarn and then a tiny spool as well with the bride & groom’s initials etched on it!  We also crimped the top of each tier to give it some texture and then wrapped some edible yarn around the base tier.

Since it was a smaller size cake I thought it would be fun to do some cupcakes as well and we accented them with tiny sugar flowers too!

Little J5′s Rocking Baby Shower

Wednesday, April 11th, 2012

Baby shower season for my friends and I is finally starting to slow down and most of us have our little bundles of joy at home with us now…yippee!  This next adorable shower was for my amazing friend Christina, from Simply Modern Weddings, and we couldn’t wait to shower her and her little future man, James the 5th, with lots of love and of course yummy dessert!  Little J5 is now 1 month old and he is more handsome than ever!

The look for the shower was Rock n Roll since the mommy to be and her hubby James love all things music!  She also is obsessed with the color turquoise (and who can blame her) so we definitely knew we wanted to incorporate that into the shower.  Courtney, from Joyful Joyful Designs, headed up most of the shower and created the adorable record signs & made some really delicious food.  Carissa, from JL Designs, hosted the shower at her fabulous house and of course did the gorgeous florals!  Carlie, from Gabriel Ryan Photographers, shot the whole day and like always her photos are perfection!

Recent Kid & Party Cakes

Monday, April 9th, 2012

We have been busy, busy at the shop making lots of fun cakes for kid’s birthday parties & baby showers and here are just a couple recent photos…

First up is an adorable Sesame Street Cake complete with a hand sculpted Elmo by Kyong!  Recently since I was pregnant and now have my little one I haven’t been working on many cakes, but rather getting ready for the new shop in Newport Beach and spending time with my little one, so Kyong, Jenna, & Irene have been doing all the cakes and I have to say I love seeing how they all turn out!

IMG_4844

IMG_4848

IMG_4845

Still sticking with the Sesame Street theme here is an adorable Big Bird cake!  Kyong did a fab job with this figurine too!

IMG_4833

IMG_4837

Kyong went on vacation for a week this month and Jenna & Irene really did a great job with lots of cakes!  This fun topsy turvy cake was for a 15th anniversary celebration and their love of Micky & Minnie Mouse was definitely on display as well!

IMG_4825

IMG_4826

IMG_4827

Gotta love a Super Hero Cake!

IMG_4798

I think this Dora cake is so simple and sweet…the flags/party hats are such a great little addition to the design!

IMG_4888

This is next cake is quite over the top and lots of fun!  The sweets theme is carried out perfectly on each tier I think and I love the color scheme as well!

IMG_4869

IMG_4871

IMG_4875

First birthday cakes are always a lot of fun to do and this next cake was no different.  It was for one of our best customers, Michelle from MiBelle!  Her little son Izzy turned one and she wanted a fun, modern cake that pulled in the “Brown Bear, Brown Bear” Book theme.  We did a play off of our popular hand painted wedding silhouette cake and instead did the words to the book!

IMG_4812

IMG_4810

One really popular style of cake these days at the bakery is our smooth ombre/color style cake.  Irene is a definite pro at it and I love these next two cakes she did…one for a birthday and one for a baby shower!

IMG_4914

523788_793953179546_24503226_36832429_2021127149_n

Baby Showers are such a great excuse to get a cute cake and this next cake has a serious cuteness factor to it!  I love the little saying…”Look Whoooo’s Having a Baby…”

IMG_4813

IMG_4814

IMG_4818

This next cake is a great twist on a popular baby shower cake we do, but they switched it up with the adorable sign and patterns on the cake.

IMG_4850

IMG_4851

This is a new design and I love it!  How cute is the little topper!?!

Thanks so much for stopping by the blog!  Definitely let us know what cake was your favorite!
