Buttercream Decorating Class @ Sweet & Saucy Shop

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 info@sweetandsaucyshop.com

Mr. Haack Turns 30!!!

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!

Style Me Pretty Book

December 22nd, 2012

Well I have been waiting for this day for a while…Style Me Pretty’s new book just came out on Decemeber 18th and I couldn’t be more overjoyed!  Last year Abby asked if I could be the contributing cake designer for the whole book and of course I said yes after pinching myself a million times!  I had the privilege and pleasure of working with Jose Villa, Lisa Vorce, Kate Holdt, and Rebecca Schmidt Ruebensaal on the books six styled photo shoots and I have to say they turned out pretty amazing!  Below is one peek from a shoot we did with them that was a bonus chapter that Abby recently featured on her blog!  You can buy the book at any major bookstore or online through Amazon.

I have to say this might be one of my favorite cakes!  I have fallen in love with gold this past year and I love to add it to anything and everything when it comes to cake and desserts!  I love simplicity as well and I think that is cake is very simple, yet just my style!

From the paintings to the gold encrusted silverware…I am in love with everything!

Thanks so much for stopping by and I will definitely be posting more about the features we have in the book coming up soon!

Christmas Time @ Sweet & Saucy Shop

December 4th, 2012

Well time sure does fly when you are busy with two shops and have a new baby!  I really can’t believe it is Christmas time already, but I have to say that I am thrilled!  I absolutely love this time of year for so many reasons and I am thrilled to share it with my little Blake this year! Our team at Sweet & Saucy Shop have had some fun coming up with some new (and of course some tried and true) holiday desserts and we hope you love them as much as we do!  All prices will be up on the website and of course you can always call, email, pop into the shop to place your order for holiday treats! First up my favorite…gold sugar and mini gingerbread men!

I always love me some good character pops!

I am definitely into washi tape this year and love adding it to anything for an extra pop of color!

Christmas sugar cookies and mason jar desserts are always popular among our clients!

We love our new macaron boxes!  We have both sizes in kraft and red and you pick what kind of washi tape you want to add to it!  The large fits 8-9 macarons and the same 4-5 macarons.

Some new delicious macaron flavors have been coming out of Sweet & Saucy thanks to Jess!  The flavors we have daily (until they get sold out) are Mexian Hot Chocolate, Pistachio, Salted Caramel, Eggnog, and White Chocolate Peppermint!

We can add these cute fondant accents to the mini or regular size cupcakes for you!

We also have gift baskets we can fill macarons, peppermint brownies, sugar cookies, cake pops, and everything else you love of ours!  We can ship baskets too

We are so excited to also be a part of a fun pop up shop this weekend in Santa Ana so if you are in the area definitely stop by as some of the top socal wedding vendors will be making and selling Christmas stuff!  Here is a sneak peek at an adorable new product we will be selling at both bakeries and the pop up shop…Santa & his sleigh of cake pops!

**All pricing is on the website…check it out here!
