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!

For the wedding cake we incorporated a grey chevron pattern and then did a single sugar succulent on the top tier to keep with the simple, modern look of the wedding!

Modern California Wedding

October 13th, 2011

I was lucky enough to work on another fabulous wedding with some of my best friends!  Gabriel Ryan Photographers shot the gorgeous images, Jesi Haack Design planned & designed it, and Carissa from JL Designs did the amazing florals.  I love the modern look of everything with all the bright pops of colors.

For the small two tier cake we wanted a lot of texture, but white on white and then accented it with a bright orange sugar flower on top!

Palm Springs Pool Party Photo Shoot

October 3rd, 2011

Have you ever wondered what a laid back, fun wedding in Palm Springs would look like!?!  Well look no more…I had the pleasure of working with the team from Jesi Haack Design.  Melanie headed it up and I think the shoot turned out fabulous! Make sure and check out the bottom of the post to see all the amazing vendors I worked with on this one!  Carlie from Gabriel Ryan Photography took the perfect photos for us…thanks Carlie!

For the cake they wanted something really fun, bold, and different.  Melanie threw out the idea of doing something with donuts and then I just ran with that idea.  I absolutely love the “ombre” color trend right now so I thought I would tie that into the design too.  I bought mini Krispy Kreme donuts and dipped them in different shades of orange icing and then put tiny white sprinkles on top.  Overall I was pretty happy with the fun cake!

Carissa’s Space Invader Baby Shower

September 29th, 2011

I am so excited to share this next baby shower with you since it is for one of my sweet wedding girlfriend’s, Carissa of JL Designs!  I am beyond happy for Carissa and Brian as they start this next chapter in their lives and to celebrate we did an over-the-top baby shower for them!  Carissa is having a little boy and loved the idea of a space invader themed shower so that is just what we gave her.  I teamed up with a bunch of my talented wedding friends to put the shower together and you can check them all out at the end of the post!

Up first the dessert bar!  We created robot cake pops, cupcakes with robot toppers, “asteroids” (white chocolate dipped donut holes), “flying saucers” (custom sugar cookies), and Kyong did a great Space Invader themed cake.

Custom Kid’s Cakes

September 19th, 2011

Well the kid’s cakes in my iphoto gallery have been stacking up so I thought I would share some recent ones we’ve done with you!  Kyong mainly heads up the kid’s cake section and I have to say she does an amazing job bringing the cake designs to life!  First up a 1st birthday party for a little rocker boy :)

This was a fun project we did recently for a 1st birthday party.  They had a whole dessert bar set up too, but I don’t have those photos yet.  We created three baby tigers for them and then a bunch of adorable baby tiger cake lollipops!

Irene is getting flawless at piped buttercream cakes and this next cake is one of my favorites…

This Mickey Mouse Clubhouse cake is a great way to pull off the theme on only a one tier cake; simple, but fun!

This next wedding is pure beauty!  The couple is gorgeous, the location is divine, and the vendors they picked for their wedding pulled out all the stops!  Emily Faulknor Photography captured this lovely San Diego wedding and I even got to partner and work with my best girlfriends Karrie & Elizabeth from Posh Paperie who did all the fabulous invitations and paper design!

For the desserts and cake we were really excited to create something amazing!  The client loved a previous backdrop that Jesi Haack Design had created for us, so she actually had her father recreate it and I think it turned out great!

I loved working on this new cake design that we did…it was bold, yet elegant!

It took me quite a lot of time to do so much detail on it, but the final product was definitely worth it!
