I have been wanting to share this for some time now since the magazine has been out for a while now, but here is it…
A couple years back I had the pleasure of doing the cakes for Leila & Tony’s wedding and I have to say it was a stunning day! The whole wedding was featured in the Spring 2012 issue of Martha Stewart Weddings Magazine. Leila is the head of Be Inspired PR and it was my pleasure to be a part of her wedding day!
Leila wanted six cakes, all with different textures in buttercream and fondant and then Carissa, from JL Designs added fresh florals & figs to the cakes! I absolutely adore the set up of the cakes!
Thanks so much for stopping by the blog!

Well I am COMPLETELY behind on blogging cakes from last year, so here are some from last summer! Time sure does fly when you have a 10 month old and two bakeries! Shout out to my team of cake girls who consistently make gorgeous cakes all year round: Kyong, Irene, Kasey, & Frances, plus Jenna who isn’t with us anymore, but worked on a lot of these lovely cakes!! First up sugar flowers and dot lace…
Gold definitely is one of my favorite colors on cakes these days!
Coral peony anyone…swoon!
Simple, smooth buttercream with flower cluster accent.
One of our most requested vintage lace cakes with sugar peonies.
We did this cake for Utterly Engaged Magazine and based the design off a Vera Wang wedding dress!
Rosette buttercream cake!
Client requested and we delivered..lots and lots of sugar flowers!
I do love square rustic cakes…so modern and cute!
Vintage flower lace with sugar ranunculus!
Probably our most requested design this last year…ombre buttercream! This time we accented it with a sugar cabbage rose!
Here is another ombre design, but this time in rustic form…sooo pretty! Love the gold heart accent too!
Thanks so much for stopping by!

Well you have spoken and we have listened! One of the most often requests I get from people is if I can offer a class that teaches our buttercream techniques. This past year has left me with little time as we opened our new bakery and then I welcomed my sweet Blake into the world, but now with wedding season past and the holidays over I have found a little time to offer one or two classes! These are definitely last minute classes so I apologize for the late notice, but to be honest I didn’t know if I would have the energy to teach this month, but I do!
In this class you will learn how to…
- Make smooth swiss meringue buttercream
- Smooth a cake and what tools are must haves
- Do the ombre design…one of our most popular designs this year!
- Do the rustic design that is perfect for all types of events
- Add a sugar sparkle coat to your buttrecream
- Pipe dots on your cake in an even pattern
- Add straight lines to your smooth buttercream cake
*** You don’t need to bring any supplies. All tools, cake dummies, etc will be provided. Just bring a camera (if you want), a note pad & pen, and apron!
The class will be on Sunday, January 27th at the Long Beach Bakery Location (6400 Stearns Street, LB 90815) from 3pm-6pm. The cost is $185 and we only have 10 spots available so email asap to sign up and we will contact you for the 50% deposit. You can email email@example.com
