Mother’s Day Menu

Monday, May 4th, 2015

Listen up men! We’re about to reveal how to earn some serious brownie points with your wife.  Let’s get real though, your husband is most likely not reading this… and in order to get the gift you really want from him, you’re going to need to “hint” at it, or basically just straight out tell him.   If you’re a mama with a sweet tooth, or know a mom who can’t get enough sweet treats,  we have some old favorites as well as some newer menu items that would be perfect for any loving mother in your life.  Don’t be afraid to treat yourself, either!  (All pricing info will be listed at the bottom of this post.)

 

First up on our list: this vibrant, swoon-worthy cake with gorgeous hand piped florals by our head buttercream decorator, Frances.  You simply can’t go wrong with this cake, and it conveniently comes in three different sizes for any size get-together.

If you’re looking for something similar, but of a smaller scale, our regular and mini buttercream rosette cupcakes are a great option.

Layered cake in a jar is always super popular around the holidays! It’s the only time you can really buy them individually without pre-ordering a batch.  They sell out quickly at our front counter, so if you aren’t adding them to your order, be sure to arrive early to get yours! Flavors shown here are chocolate salted caramel and funfetti.

Our signature cake pops get dressed up in flowers and drizzle for all of you special moms out there

Make it an entire gift by putting them in a cute little basket with crinkle paper and top it with a bow.

Easter Desserts

Wednesday, March 25th, 2015

Can you believe it’s already that time of year again? Spring has sprung and we’ve got Easter treats hopping your way! We have tons of options no matter how many loved ones you want to get hopped up (get it?!) on sugar or what your budget is.  The best part is that our cute chick, bunny, and Easter egg desserts are absolutely perfect for any age group: put them in an Easter basket, take them to share at church or to your family’s Easter breakfast, brunch or dinner and I guarantee the only thing they will love more than the Sweet and Saucy treats is YOU for bringing them! It’s a win, win, right? This year in addition to the more traditionally decorated desserts that you’d expect to see, we’ve added some florals to the mix.  What I love about these is they would work for any sort of spring-time party and aren’t limited to just Easter, which is nice.  We have some gorgeous piped floral buttercream cupcakes, hand painted floral Macarons by our Macaron queen, Jess Marvel, and last but not least, a pretty, textured buttercream cake with hand piped springtime florals on top.  These would all make for a seriously beautiful Easter dessert spread! Side note: just in case you’re curious about prices, all Easter pre-order pricing will be listed at the bottom of this post.

Baby chick cake pops and their Easter egg siblings resting snug in their nest.  Crinkle paper in our pretty pink bowls is a cute nest-like display for these little guys.  If these pops don’t have something to prop them up they will lay flat on their backs.  Need to rent some cake stands or bowls for your Easter dessert table? Contact us at either of our two locations and we’ve got you covered!

Our classic cake pops with festive sprinkles and sanding sugar are always in season, no matter what holiday or time of the year

We will have two sizes of Rice Krispy Treats available for pre-order this year.  The mini eggs come in packs of four (great for little hands!), and the large flower and eggs are sold individually. Each one comes dipped in white chocolate and is then drizzled with more white chocolate and covered in sprinkles or sanding sugar. Who says Rice Krispy Treats are only for kids? That is a complete myth!

Here is a little piece of advice: you can never have too many macarons at a party.  One turns in to four and before you know it, they’re all gone. But hey, no one’s judging. Jess decorated a variety of macaron eggs for you to choose from in addition to the chicks!  They can be made any flavor your heart desires.

macarons-4 Not everyone is crazy about sugar cookies with royal icing– but have you tried ours?  If you’re not a believer, I think we can change your mind.  Even if you aren’t set on having them at your party, they’ll be sure to please your guests and sit extra pretty before they are devoured. 314-10-1

314-9     I wasn’t joking when I said we have tons of options.  This year’s pricelist is 3 pages of Easter goodness. Make sure you all put in your orders as soon as you possibly can, as we need time to prepare these special treats for you and that weekend will fill up super fast! Have you decided what to pick for your Easter get-together yet?  If you need help deciding, be sure to give us a ring at either our Long Beach or Newport Beach shop.  Don’t forget that Sweet and Saucy Shop Long Beach & Newport Beach is closed on Easter Sundays so get your orders in for pick up Saturday!EASTERpricelist1 pricing2 pricing32

Easter Desserts

Wednesday, April 9th, 2014

Easter time is upon us and we always love coming up with cute treats for you to have at your celebrations!  Pricing on everything is at the bottom.  We will have some Easter desserts at the front counter the Wednesday before Easter and through the weekend, but we will be closed on Easter day.  We also recommend if you want a lot of desserts or anything in particular that you call ahead or email with an order since we do tend to sell out quickly of certain items!

Up first our naked carrot cake with cute little embellishments.

French macarons are super popular and so we made lots of different adorable designs for you to choose from!

We can package up your macarons too…

Our sugar cookies are some of my favorite and I love the shapes for Easter.  We can personalize them too if you want!

Our newest dessert items, our petit fours, are turning out to be quite popular so we decided to decorate a couple for Easter.  Below are our Matcha Lemon flavor and our Passion Fruit Vanilla Flavor.

Cute rice krispy treat eggs can come all packaged pretty in sets of four if you like or individual.  We can do large size as well.

For cupcakes we have some fun options below…carrot tops, roses, nests with eggs, and baby chicks.

Thanks for checking out the blog and we hope all of your have a Happy Easter!

 

Bows for Blake – Part 2

Wednesday, June 5th, 2013

I have to say that I felt a little bit of pressure to pull off quite a dessert extravaganza for Blake’s 1st birthday party, but once we came up with a theme and my mind started going it became a lot of fun to dream up what I wanted for my little girl’s special day!  My amazing sister made the fabulous bow backdrop (with help from my cousin Kandyce too) and I have to say I was in love with it!  I added some gold dots and a golden “B” and that was the backdrop!  I also added plain and glitter gold dots to accent the table as well.   I have to thank my amazing team at Sweet & Saucy Shop since they literally brought all of my ideas to life and blew me away as always!

I tried to incorporate the bow theme into most of the desserts so for the salted caramel macarons we hand painted a gold bow on top.

I love tiny details so we added mini bows to the round rice krispy treats.

I had too many ideas for her cake and couldn’t commit to just one main cake design so I decided to do three cakes instead…I guess that is one perk of owning a bakeshop!  For the first one we did a gold glitter fondant with a mint and white polka dot large bow!

Next we did mini salted caramel tarts and accented them with mini pink chocolate bows!

I have a love affair with panna cotta so we did vanilla panna cotta shot glasses with a raspberry coulis on top!  Love these little spoons I believe I got from Shop Sweet Lulu too!

A customer fav and mini too are our Red Velvet cake lollipops that we dipped in white chocolate, add mint green modeling chocolate dots and a pink bow.  I also had fun using a variety of pink and gold stands as well from our collection and a lot of them are up for sale on our supply store Sweet & Saucy Supply!

I am so excited about my recent collaboration with Little Cat Design Co as she creates the cutest cake and dessert toppers out there!  She crafted this fabulous topper for Blake, as well as the mini wooden bows on the large cupcakes and the #1 on her smash cake!  We can’t wait until we start selling Katherine’s designs in our stores as well as online, which hopefully should be done in the next month or two.

For the main cake I wanted to keep it not too busy since the topper was the main show stopper so we did a simple pretty pink bow, large gold dot garland, and also crimped the edges of the tiers to add a little more detail.

One of my favorite parts of the whole table was the cake below!  I dreamed up the idea of having these bows painted all over the cake once I saw a print like it on pinterest and Kyong brought it to life perfectly!

We made some large strawberry cupcakes with chocolate ganache filling and dressed them up with ruffle frosting, bow toppers and gold cupcake holders.

At almost all my friend’s parties they always request our sugar cookies so I knew I needed to have some cute bow cookies on the menu for the party…

Last, but not least our ever popular mini key lime pies…cute as ever!

We are so blessed to live life with such a great community of people and so many of our friends have kiddos around Blake’s same age which always proves to be loads of fun when we get together!

My sweet sister made these adorable headband favors for the little girls at the party.  You can check out her shop on etsy at SaraRaeShop 

Love my girlfriends!!!

Of course Blake needed a smash cake as well.  We did a simple mint buttercream cake with a cute little bow, polka dots, and another adorable topper from Little Cat Design Co

I had a feeling my little girl would attack the cake (she is a girl after my own heart) and she did exactly that!  She got right in there and we all loved every moment!

Of course she got to the moment of cake overload and clearly was DONE!

This is such a sweet photo below since both Angel and Christina had their sweet babies in March as well with me and we have enjoyed sharing so many precious moments of motherhood together.

This is the best photo we could get of all the kids…this day was clearly tons of fun and we were so blessed by everyone that came!
