Cakes Galore

Monday, August 20th, 2012

Get ready for a slew of cakes!  I have definitely been behind on my blogging this summer…wedding season, my little blake, and the two bakeries are definitely keeping this mommy busy, but I finally have some posts ready and this first one is filled with lots of special occasion cakes that we have done recently!

I am so blessed to have such a fabulous staff…my cake team of Kyong, Jenna, Irene, and Kasey really make some amazing cakes…at least in my opinion…every week!  And of course they couldn’t do it without my whole team who bakes all the delicious stuff day in and day out!

First up is one of my favorites…how cool is this buttercream space themed cake!

Angry birds is also a very popular cake for kids and this one is full of action and movement!

Topsy turvy cakes are a big hit at birthday parties for little ones too and this one is full of bright colors and patterns.

A lot of clients love looking at our previous designed cakes and putting their own spin on them so for this baby shower cake the client wanted to add another tier and then a fun rainbow on top too!

Adding course sanding sugar to any buttercream or fondant cake really gives it such a fun sparkle.  This communion cake is sweet and simple, but completely girlie!

Of course I had to get my hands in on the shower a little bit once I saw the adorable invitation design, so I designed this cake after the invitation and thought up some cute new twists on mini desserts for my little blake!  Kyong & Jenna made the cake for me and all the girls at the bakery made my desserts look so great…I have such a great team!

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_4844

IMG_4848

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

IMG_4826

IMG_4827

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!

IMG_4914

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_4814

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.

IMG_4850

IMG_4851

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

Carissa’s Space Invader Baby Shower

Thursday, 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.

More Eye Candy Coming Your Way!

This first cake has to be one of Kyong’s sweetest creations yet!  The theme was candy land and this is what Kyong dreamt up…don’t you just love it!!!

Damask always seems to catch the eye of certain clients and for this princess bridal shower it fit just right!

IMG_9357

IMG_9361

Here is another fun purse cake…pretty, pink, and Chanel!

IMG_9047

IMG_9050

This cake Irene made and I thought it came out perfectly!  Yo Gabba Gabba is still going strong at the bakery!

We get lots of requests for Toy Story cakes and I love this next one with the jean and cowboy print pattern.  The badges are so fun too.

toy_story_badges

For this sweet baby shower cake we pipped on tiny dots to mimic the clothing lines and then hung some baby onsies on them.

IMG_9082

IMG_9086

Kyong made the perfect Dora cupcake toppers for this next order.

IMG_5969

How adorable is this airplane and stork cake…tiny and cute

IMG_8516

IMG_8520

We got the chance to do a fun mardi gras cake for a 70th birthday celebration.

IMG_9366

IMG_9367

IMG_9370

This cake is all about fairies, dreams, and flying ponies!  The little girl sent us some photos of her room and we tried to make that design into a dreamy cake for her.

Lastly one of my favorite shower cakes I’ve done…I just love the simplicity of it…the buttons, sugar thread, and delicate sugar flower.  I got the chance to make this cake for a high school friend of mine and it was such a pleasure.

IMG_9496

IMG_9507

IMG_9508

I also made some matching button sugar cookies.  We frosted them with royal icing so they tasted yummy and delicious and then I draped a super thin piece of fondant on top to give it the detail and texture it needed.

Kid’s Cakes

Monday, March 7th, 2011

Well us ladies at Sweet & Saucy Shop don’t only do wedding cakes we also get the chance to make lots of fun kid’s cakes!  Below are some of the recent ones we’ve done…enjoy!

For this fun Toy Story themed cake, Irene did a great job of buttercreaming & piping on this cake, which is quite task if you’ve ever tried and Kyong made the adorable fondant details!

IMG_8562

IMG_8564

IMG_8563

One of my Dad’s employee’s wanted a NY Yankee themed cake for their little boy’s birthday and I have to say Kyong hit it out of the park :)

IMG_8608

IMG_8611

IMG_8609

For this next princess castle cake I piped lots of pretty vines and added mini sugar flowers to make it whimsical and girlie.

IMG_8568

IMG_8572

IMG_8574

IMG_8573

This next cake is such a fun one…Kyong designed it and this time around the cake was for a little boy, so of course the ducky needed a little mohawk!

IMG_8613

IMG_8614

IMG_8615

IMG_8616

If you want bling, sparkle, and glitz this is the Sweet Sixteen cake for you!

IMG_8602

IMG_8603

IMG_8604

For this cake the client sent us in a photo of this baby carriage that was actually painted on her pregnant belly and wanted to replicate the same painting in cake form, so this is what we came up with!

IMG_8594

IMG_8597

I just have to say that sugar pinwheels make everything cuter…

IMG_8546

IMG_8617

We don’t make lots of topsy turvy cakes at the bakery, but for this 1st birthday we pulled out all the stops and I think it turned out adorable.  The client wanted to pull in her daughter’s initial “R” into the theme of the cake and Kyong came up with this great design!

IMG_8706

IMG_8709

IMG_8708

We also made handpainted sugar cookies and a mini smash cake that matched as well…to cute huh!

IMG_8702

IMG_8710

Lastly we had the fun opportunity to make a Rapunzel cake based of the movie Tangled and so we thought it would be fun to do the tower that Rapuzel lived in with her locks of hair flowing down.  I have to say it was quite a tediously process when I made all the stone wall effect and piped the vines and flowers, but overall I was really happy with it!

IMG_8621

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Definitely let us know which cake was your favorite!
