Baby Shower for Ashley & Parker Rose

February 6th, 2013

Get ready for a lot of PRETTY!  I am SO in love with this baby shower that we got to throw for the sweet & talented Ashley Rose and her little baby Parker London!  The team of ladies behind this special day made it a dream come true to put together….Jesi Haack – Jesi Haack Design, Carissa – JL Designs, Karrie & Elizabeth – Posh Paperie, and Ala – Love Ala who took the gorgeous photos!

We decided to go all out girlie for Ashley’s shower and did lots of gold and pink and SPARKLE, SPARKLE, SPARKLE!!!

Love the backdrop Jesi made for the dessert station!

To add a little extra cuteness to these rice krispy treats we hand painted little arrows & parker’s initials on them!

Karrie & Elizabeth always blow me away with their invitation and paper design!  Love dreaming up my dessert bars after I see their designs!

How amazing are Carissa’s florals!?!  And gold, sparkle dinos…I die!

Giant balloons are one trend that I am still in love with and think forever will be…

This might be one of my fav dessert spreads yet for a party!  I just loved getting to add all the girlie details to it!

Of course we had to do some ice cream cone cake pops, “P” sugar cookies and sparkle macarons!

Don’t you just love Ashley’s dress too!  She is such a beautiful mommy!

Simple, cute and modern is what we went with for the cake and I love how it turned out!

Ashley I am so blessed by your friendship and think little Parker London is just the sweetest baby ever…besides Blake of course :)  Congrats!

 

Valentine’s Day Shippable Treats + Our New LB Location

February 5th, 2013

Well as much as I wish that everyone lived close by to us so we could swoon you with our local Valentine’s Day treats I know that isn’t possible so we tried to create some treats that will be great for shipping as well!  These treats below would be the perfect Valentine’s Day treats to ship to your loved one, friend, family member, or business associates!  We of course are smitten with our custom Sweet & Saucy Shop boxes that hold 12 and 24 cake pops and can be shipped all across the US (except Hawaii…sorry).

We have two different Valentine’s Day options for you below with flavors like Strawberry, Vanilla, Brownie, etc how could you go wrong!  The 12 pack box is $32 & the 24 pack box is $60 plus S&H.  Place your order today on www.sweetandsaucypops.com and just specify when you want it to arrive!

We can also ship our mason jar desserts which are SO cute and very tasty!  Below is Red Velvet with cream cheese frosting, but we can do tons of flavors from Candy Bar to Chocolate Espresso to Oreo!  These items and the ones below can be ordered through email at info@sweetandsaucyshop.com

If you haven’t had our homemade rice krispy treats you are missing out…seriously addicting!  And of course I am pretty in love with the hearts and XO design!

Lastly these little heart sugar cookies would be a special treat to arrive in the mail as well!  Email us to order and get full pricing with shipping at info@sweetandsaucyshop.com

We are also so excited to share with you our new custom liners that we had made for our Sweet & Saucy Shop boxes.  Now not only do our boxes hold our cake pops, but they can fit our mini and regular cupcakes as well.  Sadly we can’t ship these, but if you are local to Long Beach or Orange County then definitely stop in for these customer favorites and have them all tied up in our pretty boxes for only $3 extra!  The large boxes hold 6 regular cupcakes or 15 mini cupcakes and the small boxes hold 4 regular cupcakes or 9 mini cupcakes!

Last, but not least if you follow us on instagram, twitter, or facebook you might have seen that we are very excited to announce we are moving our current LB bakery to a new location in Long Beach…Bixby Knolls!  We will still be very close off the 405 Freeway off of Atlantic now and our new bakery will be our permanent home since we will own the building!  It will be 2 1/2 times the size of our current location and will have 15 parking spots just for our customers…now isn’t that music to your ears!  We will also have a refrigerated case and more sit down tables in front like we have in our NB bakery so you will be able to taste more of our treats on a daily basis!  Some other very exciting news is that this location has a back building behind it that will be exclusively for dessert decorating classes, so we will now have monthly classes and teach everything from buttercream cakes, to sugar cookies, cupcake decorating, sugar flowers, fondant cakes, and more!

Thanks so much for all your support through these last 6 years or so…I would never of imaged we would have two bakeries and so many wonderful customers!

We start this week tearing down everything that was in the building before and we are starting from scratch and building it how we want it…yippee!  A big thanks to my amazing parents and co-owers…without them and the Lord this would never be possible!

Buttercream Decorating Class @ Sweet & Saucy Shop

January 7th, 2013

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 info@sweetandsaucyshop.com

Thanks to Aaron Young for the fab photos as always!

I love when I get to pull out the clear plexi stands as they have a fun look that no other stands can create I feel!
