Featured!!!

Tuesday, February 19th, 2013

Something that is always sure to put a smile on my face is to see our work in print, online, or in a book!  We have been so blessed this past year to be featured in some great magazines, websites, and books and below are a couple recent ones!

A month ago I was asked by Martha Stewart Weddings to design a cake based on their color palette series they were bringing back for their blog The Bride’s Guide and of course I jumped at the chance!  The color palette they wanted me to focus on was shades of pink, which I have to say I was pretty happy about!  I love pink and with Valentine’s thoughts running through my head it was a perfect time to design!  I had recently noticed the Wedding Chicks amazing pattern on their website and thought it would be a great design for a cake one day and so when I got asked to do this cake I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to try it out!  Below is the cake, the inspiration, and the feature on The Bride’s Guide!  Thanks to my sister for the photos she snapped of the cake!

Our new addition to our fondant team, Kasey, headed up this project and I think she did an amazing job executing my design!

Another fun feature we recently got in was for Martha Stewart Destination Weddings!  This was a last minute request from the magazine for a couple who got married in Palm Springs!  They already had their wedding cake that came with their hotel package in Palm Springs, but the magazine wanted gorgeous sugar flowers to accent it so they asked us to create them!  My sister did an amazing job with the sugar flowers and it was so fun seeing them in print!

We were lucky enough to be featured in The Knot Southern California for a wedding too that we did with Constance Curtis Events and Aaron Young Photography took the great photos!

Lastly we got featured in the UK’s You & Your Wedding Magazine with Kristeen Labrot Events and Jose Villa!  Love getting to work with so many talented people!

I also wanted to mention we have a couple spots left for our sugar flower class this Sunday from 2-6pm at our LB Bakery.  The class will teach you how to master the sugar peony and sugar rose, which are our two most popular sugar flowers!  The class is $215. If you are interested email us asap at info@sweetandsaucyshop.com to get more info and reserve your spot.

The other class that we have on the books is the last buttercream techniques class I will be teaching for a while.  We have had 3 great classes so far and our students have mastered the rustic, line buttercream, sugar encrusting, dots, and of course the most exciting ombre buttercream.  This class is Sunday, March 24th from 3-6pm for $185.  Email us at info@sweetandsaucyshop.com to sign up!

Valentine’s Day Photoshoot

Monday, February 11th, 2013

I was so happy to be a part of this fun children’s Valentine’s Day photo shoot at Granola Babies!  Lyndsey from Jack & Lola Photography took all the great photos and my sister, Sara from SaraRaeShop provided all the headbands, and the cute bow ties are from Haddon Co.!

Sara’s headbands are basically to die for!

Gotta love little ones shoving their faces with treats!

Guess he liked it…

 

Martha Stewart Wedding Magazine: Leila & Tony’s Wedding

Friday, February 8th, 2013

I have been wanting to share this for some time now since the magazine has been out for a while now, but here is it…

Martha-Stewart-Weddings-Spring-2012-Cover

A couple years back I had the pleasure of doing the cakes for Leila & Tony’s wedding and I have to say it was a stunning day!  The whole wedding was featured in the Spring 2012 issue of Martha Stewart Weddings Magazine.  Leila is the head of Be Inspired PR and it was my pleasure to be a part of her wedding day!

Leila wanted six cakes, all with different textures in buttercream and fondant and then Carissa, from JL Designs added fresh florals & figs to the cakes!  I absolutely adore the set up of the cakes!

Baby Shower for Ashley & Parker Rose

Wednesday, February 6th, 2013

Get ready for a lot of PRETTY!  I am SO in love with this baby shower that we got to throw for the sweet & talented Ashley Rose and her little baby Parker London!  The team of ladies behind this special day made it a dream come true to put together….Jesi Haack – Jesi Haack Design, Carissa – JL Designs, Karrie & Elizabeth – Posh Paperie, and Ala – Love Ala who took the gorgeous photos!

We decided to go all out girlie for Ashley’s shower and did lots of gold and pink and SPARKLE, SPARKLE, SPARKLE!!!

Love the backdrop Jesi made for the dessert station!

To add a little extra cuteness to these rice krispy treats we hand painted little arrows & parker’s initials on them!

Karrie & Elizabeth always blow me away with their invitation and paper design!  Love dreaming up my dessert bars after I see their designs!

How amazing are Carissa’s florals!?!  And gold, sparkle dinos…I die!

Giant balloons are one trend that I am still in love with and think forever will be…

This might be one of my fav dessert spreads yet for a party!  I just loved getting to add all the girlie details to it!

Of course we had to do some ice cream cone cake pops, “P” sugar cookies and sparkle macarons!

Don’t you just love Ashley’s dress too!  She is such a beautiful mommy!

Simple, cute and modern is what we went with for the cake and I love how it turned out!

Ashley I am so blessed by your friendship and think little Parker London is just the sweetest baby ever…besides Blake of course :)  Congrats!

 

Valentine’s Day Shippable Treats + Our New LB Location

Tuesday, February 5th, 2013

Well as much as I wish that everyone lived close by to us so we could swoon you with our local Valentine’s Day treats I know that isn’t possible so we tried to create some treats that will be great for shipping as well!  These treats below would be the perfect Valentine’s Day treats to ship to your loved one, friend, family member, or business associates!  We of course are smitten with our custom Sweet & Saucy Shop boxes that hold 12 and 24 cake pops and can be shipped all across the US (except Hawaii…sorry).

We have two different Valentine’s Day options for you below with flavors like Strawberry, Vanilla, Brownie, etc how could you go wrong!  The 12 pack box is $32 & the 24 pack box is $60 plus S&H.  Place your order today on www.sweetandsaucypops.com and just specify when you want it to arrive!

We can also ship our mason jar desserts which are SO cute and very tasty!  Below is Red Velvet with cream cheese frosting, but we can do tons of flavors from Candy Bar to Chocolate Espresso to Oreo!  These items and the ones below can be ordered through email at info@sweetandsaucyshop.com

If you haven’t had our homemade rice krispy treats you are missing out…seriously addicting!  And of course I am pretty in love with the hearts and XO design!

Lastly these little heart sugar cookies would be a special treat to arrive in the mail as well!  Email us to order and get full pricing with shipping at info@sweetandsaucyshop.com

We are also so excited to share with you our new custom liners that we had made for our Sweet & Saucy Shop boxes.  Now not only do our boxes hold our cake pops, but they can fit our mini and regular cupcakes as well.  Sadly we can’t ship these, but if you are local to Long Beach or Orange County then definitely stop in for these customer favorites and have them all tied up in our pretty boxes for only $3 extra!  The large boxes hold 6 regular cupcakes or 15 mini cupcakes and the small boxes hold 4 regular cupcakes or 9 mini cupcakes!

Last, but not least if you follow us on instagram, twitter, or facebook you might have seen that we are very excited to announce we are moving our current LB bakery to a new location in Long Beach…Bixby Knolls!  We will still be very close off the 405 Freeway off of Atlantic now and our new bakery will be our permanent home since we will own the building!  It will be 2 1/2 times the size of our current location and will have 15 parking spots just for our customers…now isn’t that music to your ears!  We will also have a refrigerated case and more sit down tables in front like we have in our NB bakery so you will be able to taste more of our treats on a daily basis!  Some other very exciting news is that this location has a back building behind it that will be exclusively for dessert decorating classes, so we will now have monthly classes and teach everything from buttercream cakes, to sugar cookies, cupcake decorating, sugar flowers, fondant cakes, and more!

Thanks so much for all your support through these last 6 years or so…I would never of imaged we would have two bakeries and so many wonderful customers!

We start this week tearing down everything that was in the building before and we are starting from scratch and building it how we want it…yippee!  A big thanks to my amazing parents and co-owers…without them and the Lord this would never be possible!
