Scout’s 1st Birthday Party

December 9th, 2011

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 :)

Big Announcement: Now Shipping Sweet & Saucy Cake Lollipops

December 5th, 2011

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!!!

New Wedding Cake Designs

November 4th, 2011

I thought I would share some new cake designs we’ve done lately!  Up first one of my favorites from this last summer.  A peacock feather bohemian style head piece inspired the cake design.  We made the cake head piece all out of sugar and then did a white on white pattern for the base of the cake to give it some texture.

IMG_2755

I just love the color palette for this cake.

IMG_2757

Up next an example of a romantic wedding cake with touches of blush pink and white sugar roses cascading up the front.

IMG_2429

IMG_2435

This cake is definitely more modern with a bold color and pattern on the base tier and then a sugar peony we colored silver.

This is one of my favorite all white on white wedding cakes…it’s so delicate and romantic looking!

This next cake was inspired by a cake design from The Caketress that one of my clients loved and then we put our own spin on it to incorporate her wedding style and design.

Last but not least a sampling of cakes to mimic the iconic “Cakes” painting by Wayne Thiebaud.  Irene did a great job with all of these cakes and the client loved them!

Chevron Patterns & Lots of Succulents!

October 25th, 2011

I have to say one of my favorite new trends that started this past year or two was the love of succulents and the chevron pattern! I am totally a clean, modern type of girl so this wedding is speaking my love language!  I had the pleasure of working with the fabulously talented Carissa, from JL Designs yet again who did the amazing floral and event design.  The wedding was held at the Luxe Hotel in Bel Air and LRS Event Planning helped the day come together beautifully!  I love all the gorgeous photos Meg Perotti shot and can’t wait to work with her again!

October 13th, 2011
