I am so excited to share this gorgeous wedding from Bre, of Joyful Weddings & Events! It was held at the Fransiscan Gardens in San Juan Capistrano and the gorgeous photos are from Sarah of Frenzel Photography! I love the outdoor rustic elegance this wedding has…simply beautiful!
Of course all the gorgeous rentals were from Found Vintage Rentals…my favorite!
How amazing is this backdrop…I was so thrilled when I saw it! We did a trio of rustic cakes, which is one of my favorite wedding looks and then accented them with large dahlia flowers…can you say LOVELY!
And of course I can never pass up a good shoe shot! Best wishes Rachel & Jeff!

Recently Kyong and I had the chance to make a fun Toy Story themed cake. Now this was not your typical cake, but instead the client wanted a GIANT Woody Doll cake. It was a lot of work, but definitely worth it in the end…
And here is a fun sneak peak of what the cake looked like before we decorated it
Groom’s cakes are very popular these days and this next one was quite the challenge! The bride said her future husband loved the Transformer’s and so she wanted to surprise him with a giant Transformer. This cake took Kyong and I quite a long time to make, but we finished it & thankfully it was delivered safe & sound!
You never know what kind of crazy requests you are going to get when you own a bakery and this next cake was definitely up there in the interesting cake category! The bride said her future husband LOVED Elvis and specially “fat” Elvis, so that is what we gave her!
Thanks so much for stopping by and checking out our crazy cakes…definitely let us know which on is your favorite!

I absolutely LOVE these photos from this photo shoot I got to be a part of for a feature in Nonpareil Wedding Magazine! Jen, from Green Wedding Shoes, came up with the idea for the shoot and Cortnie, from Canvas & Canopy, brought it all to life with the help of Meg, from Le Partie Events, who did the breathtaking florals! You can check out the whole list of the fabulous vendors at the bottom of the post!
Of course the amazing Elizabeth Messina captured all the moments with her photos…can’t thank her enough!
I absolutely love the decor pieces…
For the first cake for the shoot I took a more masculine take on it and did a basic outline on the cake and then did a sugar succulent on top of the cake.
I also made two custom cupcakes with individual sugar flowers…
For this next cake I did a more feminine look it. I covered the cake in coral fondant and then did grey sugar lace and a whimsy sugar flower.
This next cake might be one of my favs…I love the mint green color, the cluster sugar flowers in three different colors, the sugar threads, and the white lace!
