Summer Wedding Cakes Part II

Wednesday, January 23rd, 2013

Well I am COMPLETELY behind on blogging cakes from last year, so here are some from last summer!  Time sure does fly when you have a 10 month old and two bakeries!  Shout out to my team of cake girls who consistently make gorgeous cakes all year round: Kyong, Irene, Kasey, & Frances, plus Jenna who isn’t with us anymore, but worked on a lot of these lovely cakes!! First up sugar flowers and dot lace…




Gold definitely is one of my favorite colors on cakes these days!


Coral peony anyone…swoon!


Simple, smooth buttercream with flower cluster accent.



One of our most requested vintage lace cakes with sugar peonies.


We did this cake for Utterly Engaged Magazine and based the design off a Vera Wang wedding dress!



Rosette buttercream cake!


Client requested and we delivered..lots and lots of sugar flowers!



I do love square rustic cakes…so modern and cute!


Vintage flower lace with sugar ranunculus!


Probably our most requested design this last year…ombre buttercream!  This time we accented it with a sugar cabbage rose!


Here is another ombre design, but this time in rustic form…sooo pretty!  Love the gold heart accent too!


Thanks so much for stopping by!

Buttercream Decorating Class @ Sweet & Saucy Shop

Monday, January 7th, 2013

Well you have spoken and we have listened!  One of the most often requests I get from people is if  I can offer a class that teaches our buttercream techniques.  This past year has left me with little time as we opened our new bakery and then I welcomed my sweet Blake into the world, but now with wedding season past and the holidays over I have found a little time to offer one or two classes!  These are definitely last minute classes so I apologize for the late notice, but to be honest I didn’t know if I would have the energy to teach this month, but I do!

In this class you will learn how to…

- Make smooth swiss meringue buttercream

- Smooth a cake and what tools are must haves

- Do the ombre design…one of our most popular designs this year!

- Do the rustic design that is perfect for all types of events

- Add a sugar sparkle coat to your buttrecream

- Pipe dots on your cake in an even pattern

- Add straight lines to your smooth buttercream cake

*** You don’t need to bring any supplies.  All tools, cake dummies, etc will be provided.  Just bring a camera (if you want), a note pad & pen, and apron!

The class will be on Sunday, January 27th at the Long Beach Bakery Location (6400 Stearns Street, LB 90815) from 3pm-6pm.  The cost is $185 and we only have 10 spots available so email asap to sign up and we will contact you for the 50% deposit.  You can email

Mr. Haack Turns 30!!!

Sunday, January 6th, 2013

I absolutely love the true life long friends I have made since starting in the wedding industry!  I have to say the Haack’s are some of the best people around and I was so blessed to be able to be a part of the surprise 30th birthday party for Ryan!  His wife Jesi Haack, the amazing wedding designer, threw a killer party for him complete with every manly detail you could ask for! Thanks to Aaron Young for the fab photos as always!

I love when I get to pull out the clear plexi stands as they have a fun look that no other stands can create I feel!

S’mores cupcake…oh so good!

The surprise reaction was SO good!

Chocolate Salted Caramel Tart!
