I am just in love with this next wedding that I got to be a part of! The couple are good friends of Carissa, from JL Designs, who did all the floral design and clearly you can tell that they are have fabulous taste! They wanted their wedding design to be early southern california history mixed with some masculine texan details. I love the rich color scheme and the rustic touches here and there. The talented Ashley Rose photographed the whole wedding and I love think the photos are dreamy! The Villa at San Juan Capistrano was the fantastic venue it was held at.
How cute are these next photos…
The bride, Wimberly, created the lovely invitations herself…
I love Carissa’s floral arrangements and decor…it fit the look perfectly!
For the mini dessert bar we used lots of cut glass and amber cake stands and I loved the look of it.
Some of gorgeous rentals, like this table for the dessert bar, were from Found Vintage Rentals…they are the best!
They had a special family recipe they wanted us to recreate which was a fun addition to the mini dessert bar.
For the cake we wanted to do something clean and modern, but also look rich and elegant. We stuck with the white and gold color scheme and I decided to paint fondant braids gold and use them to wrap around the cake tiers. Then we did a white ruffle sugar flower with a large gold center.
Looks like everyone at the wedding had a great time!

One thing I love about being in the wedding industry is all the amazing vendors I get to meet and sometimes even share in their families special day as well! These gorgeous photos were taken by the amazing photographer Chenin, from Boutwell Studios! Chenin put on this fabulous rainbow birthday party for her little girl Scout’s 1st birthday! We were lucky enough to be able to do the two cakes for her, but all the rest was Chenin’s magic
We based the cake design off of her invites and I just love how it turned out with the rainbow chevron pattern
We also did a little buttercream smash cake for the birthday girl!
How cute are the other desserts and food that Chenin made…
And of course this might be my favorite shot of the day…too cute!

One question that my mom and I are always asked by our customers at the bakery and our customers in other states is “When are you going to start shipping your cake lollipops?” Well we listened too all of your thoughts and suggestions and being someone who doesn’t jump into anything without thinking it through and coming up with some cute packaging to go along with it :), we decided last year to start the BIG endeavor of shipping desserts across the country and now finally it has come to fruition.
We of course enlisted the help of my talented friend Karrie Pyke, from Karrie Pyke Designs, to come up with package design and then the talented Kristin Eldridge shot some gorgeous photos of our product for us, and lastly my amazing husband Tim, from Skip Agency, brought it all to life through our new website…www.sweetandsaucypops.com!!!
We at Sweet & Saucy Shop couldn’t be happier to announce that you can now purchase our cake lollipops in boxes of 12 or 24 whenever you want, no matter where you are from in the United States. We would love for you to check out our new site and of course we think that our cake lollipops would be the perfect Christmas present under any tree this holiday season!
