Little J5′s Rocking Baby Shower

Wednesday, April 11th, 2012

Baby shower season for my friends and I is finally starting to slow down and most of us have our little bundles of joy at home with us now…yippee!  This next adorable shower was for my amazing friend Christina, from Simply Modern Weddings, and we couldn’t wait to shower her and her little future man, James the 5th, with lots of love and of course yummy dessert!  Little J5 is now 1 month old and he is more handsome than ever!

The look for the shower was Rock n Roll since the mommy to be and her hubby James love all things music!  She also is obsessed with the color turquoise (and who can blame her) so we definitely knew we wanted to incorporate that into the shower.  Courtney, from Joyful Joyful Designs, headed up most of the shower and created the adorable record signs & made some really delicious food.  Carissa, from JL Designs, hosted the shower at her fabulous house and of course did the gorgeous florals!  Carlie, from Gabriel Ryan Photographers, shot the whole day and like always her photos are perfection!

I have to say the food was one of the yummiest I’ve had at showers…I could eat mini burgers and sweet potato fries all day long!

For the dessert table we did a simple, yet modern one tier cake and kyong accented it with a fondant made record on top!  Then we did guitar pick sugar cookies, salted caramel french macarons, rice krispy treats, lemon raspberry cupcakes, and my favorite & Christina’s passion fruit panna cotta!

Recent Kid & Party Cakes

Monday, April 9th, 2012

We have been busy, busy at the shop making lots of fun cakes for kid’s birthday parties & baby showers and here are just a couple recent photos…

First up is an adorable Sesame Street Cake complete with a hand sculpted Elmo by Kyong!  Recently since I was pregnant and now have my little one I haven’t been working on many cakes, but rather getting ready for the new shop in Newport Beach and spending time with my little one, so Kyong, Jenna, & Irene have been doing all the cakes and I have to say I love seeing how they all turn out!

IMG_4845

Still sticking with the Sesame Street theme here is an adorable Big Bird cake!  Kyong did a fab job with this figurine too!

IMG_4833

IMG_4837

Kyong went on vacation for a week this month and Jenna & Irene really did a great job with lots of cakes!  This fun topsy turvy cake was for a 15th anniversary celebration and their love of Micky & Minnie Mouse was definitely on display as well!

IMG_4825

Gotta love a Super Hero Cake!

IMG_4798

I think this Dora cake is so simple and sweet…the flags/party hats are such a great little addition to the design!

IMG_4888

This is next cake is quite over the top and lots of fun!  The sweets theme is carried out perfectly on each tier I think and I love the color scheme as well!

IMG_4869

IMG_4871

IMG_4875

First birthday cakes are always a lot of fun to do and this next cake was no different.  It was for one of our best customers, Michelle from MiBelle!  Her little son Izzy turned one and she wanted a fun, modern cake that pulled in the “Brown Bear, Brown Bear” Book theme.  We did a play off of our popular hand painted wedding silhouette cake and instead did the words to the book!

IMG_4812

IMG_4810

One really popular style of cake these days at the bakery is our smooth ombre/color style cake.  Irene is a definite pro at it and I love these next two cakes she did…one for a birthday and one for a baby shower!

Baby Showers are such a great excuse to get a cute cake and this next cake has a serious cuteness factor to it!  I love the little saying…”Look Whoooo’s Having a Baby…”

IMG_4813

IMG_4818

This next cake is a great twist on a popular baby shower cake we do, but they switched it up with the adorable sign and patterns on the cake.

This is a new design and I love it!  How cute is the little topper!?!

Little Boys & Bow Ties!

Sunday, February 6th, 2011

This post is definitely special to my heart! I had the pleasure along with Carissa of JL Designs & Courtney of Joyful Weddings & Events, of throwing one of my best girlfriends Jesi, from Jesi Haack Weddings a little baby shower to celebrate the birth of her adorable little son Maverick.  Jesi has been such a blessing in my life and I loved being about to give back to her just a little.  The theme that Courtney came up with was “Bow ties” and I have to say I was smitten with it from the start.

The talented ladies, Karrie & Elizabeth, from Posh Paperie created the cutest invitations and paper pieces for the party.  Of course I have to say a HUGE thank you to Carlie, of Gabriel Ryan Photography for the fabulous photos…they are just perfect!

A fun little side not about the shower is that it was actually held at my new house I bought last year.  Carissa did a beautiful job with the flowers & Courtney’s little accents along the way were so much fun.

I had so much fun using some of the pieces from Sweet & Saucy Supply for the shower.  The colorful stands are such a great pop of color on the table.

I had so much fun setting up the desserts on my new vintage dresser I found at the LA Flea Market!  We made a small ruffle cake with a fondant bow tie accent, french macaroons, cake lollipops, mini cupcakes, and of course some bow tie sugar cookies.

Lots of New Specialty Cakes

Sunday, October 17th, 2010

I have lots of fun specialty cakes to share with you!  My team at the shop is so awesome and I definitely relay on them for SO much around the shop.  Kyong in particular does most of the cakes with me and she is especially talented and loves making special occasion cakes!  A lot of these cakes are all Kyong, so I definitely need to brag about her!  She is a great part of the team and I’m definitely blessed by her!

First up, a groom’s cake we made for a sports lover!  His bride surprised him by combining all three of his favorite teams on one cake!

We definitely do lots of baby shower cakes and a lot of clients love the baby feet so we have found ways to incorporate them into different cake designs.

New Special Occasion Cakes!

Thursday, February 25th, 2010

Although we do mostly wedding cakes at the shop we also love making special occasion cakes to help people celebrate that special day in their lives!  These types of cakes can sometimes require a lot more work and detail then wedding cakes, but I find that it’s all or nothing when it comes to them because when you say you will make someone a cake that replicates a real life item it either looks like it or not…not too much room for error.  With that being said, my big undertaking this month was a DJ Turntable Cake.  I was pretty happy with how it came out, but definitely underestimated the hours I would have to put into it!

IMG_8605.JPG

IMG_8608.JPG

IMG_8614.JPG

And since it was a 1st Birthday Cake we added a special element for the birthday boy!

IMG_8611.JPG

This next cake was for a 25th birthday party!  She loved peacock feathers and knew her color scheme, so we took that and ran with it!  My sister made the sugar flower and feathers and I think they are amazing!

IMG_1814.JPG

IMG_1804.JPG

IMG_1810.JPG

Kid’s cakes are a lot of fun too, but I try to make sure they still follow my style and don’t get too overdone…here is a Panda Bear Cake with tiny sugar flowers and butterflies!

IMG_8441.JPG

IMG_8459.JPG

My assistant, Louisa, made the Panda Bear and I think it turned out great! I love the half smile and cute little face!

IMG_8450.JPG

IMG_8453.JPG

Now sometimes people don’t have a lot of money to spend on a special occasion cake, but want something beautiful and delicious, so I always suggest the rustic style cream cheese frosting cakes with fresh flower accents because I think they are just as gorgeous in their own simplistic way!

IMG_8628.JPG

We also got to do a recent Sweet Sixteen Birthday Cake and she wanted a princess tiara crown and a bold sugar flower!

IMG_8408.JPG

IMG_8403.JPG

IMG_8407.JPG

Lastly one of my favorite cakes recently was for a small wedding we did last weekend.  My new intern, Kyong, is definitely an artist and when I showed her the design I wanted to have painted on the cake she did it better than I could’ve imagined.  I was also quite happy with this garden rose sugar flower I made.  I wasn’t sure how I would like the flower once it had the red tips on it, but I was pleasantly surprised…I think it made it pop and really showed the gorgeous petals off!

Well thanks for stopping by to check out my blog!  I’m currently in Texas and about to run off to my first day of class with Mike McCarey! We will be learning cake structure for crazy cakes and will be remaking this fantastic Big Bird Cake that Mike made for a Food Network Competition…wish me luck!

An Eventful Post

Friday, January 15th, 2010

Well as you probably know these kind of posts come up every couple months when I have so many small events that I want to feature, so I cram them all together into one large, mega post!  There is a lot of eye candy coming up, so definitely let me know what’s your favorite!  First off I recently got to do a wedding with Jesi Haack Weddings & Sarah K Chen at The Marvimon House (which I LOVE).  I met Jessica, the bride, at The White Dress in Cornona Del Mar when we did a wedding showcase there and we definitely hit it off.  She told me her and her fiance, Curt, wanted to have an out-of-the-box kind of wedding cake.  The wanted sleek, modern, and rustic all at the same time and threw out the idea of a square cake that looked like a real block of wood, SO that is just what we did.  They had goodies on the dessert table from friends, family, and local bakeries, but we were really happy to do their special wedding cake.  Their wedding was to say the least AMAZING…it has been featured all over the wedding blog world, so I am pretty sure you have seen the photos already, but if not here is just a little sneak peak into their special day.  To see all the photos from their wedding check out this post! Thanks for the great photos Sarah!

This next cake was for a baby shower and they had an owl invitation they wanted me to grab inspiration from.  She wanted the cake to be simple and modern with some fun accents.  They were also kind enough to send me some personal photos that they took at the shower…thanks!

We always get lots of fun cookie orders, so here are some photos of some recent cookies we’ve done!

Now these two deadly cookies are my main addiction every day in the bakery!  My sole mission is trying to not grab one from the front of the store and eat it, but sadly I fail often!  Chocolate Chunk Cookies & White Chocolate Oatmeal Cranberry Cookies are in the shop daily, so if you are near by definitely stop in!

Well hopefully I didn’t tempt you guys too much and ruin your diet for the day…if I did, I apologize!
