I think I might have posted this Girl Scout Cookie Cake I did a while back, but here is the whole set up which I just had to show! Since the bride works for Girl Scouts she wanted to incorporate the cookies into her cake, but in a elegant way.  I painted them with edible gold and then had them cascading down the cake.

Then we created four side cakes with our rustic cream cheese frosting and accented them with four more cookie types!

Shipwreck Photo Shoot

July 11th, 2011

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!

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!

New Store Front Window Design

July 6th, 2011

Well as many of my blog posts start…”I’ve been meaning to post this for forever”!  I am so in love with my new window design that the talented girls over at Proost Event Design & Planning created for me!  You definitely have to check out their fabulous website and blog as they are quite the talented sisters!

I basically gave them free reign on the backdrop and I love the pops of summery colors they pulled together.  The overall design is so fresh and clean looking…definitely my style!  All my clients love it as much as we do and if you are looking to get pieces created for your party or special day definitely check them out!

My front window is so hard to photograph since there is such bad reflection, but hopefully you can see just how gorgeous it is!
