Bows for Blake – Part 2

Wednesday, June 5th, 2013

I have to say that I felt a little bit of pressure to pull off quite a dessert extravaganza for Blake’s 1st birthday party, but once we came up with a theme and my mind started going it became a lot of fun to dream up what I wanted for my little girl’s special day!  My amazing sister made the fabulous bow backdrop (with help from my cousin Kandyce too) and I have to say I was in love with it!  I added some gold dots and a golden “B” and that was the backdrop!  I also added plain and glitter gold dots to accent the table as well.   I have to thank my amazing team at Sweet & Saucy Shop since they literally brought all of my ideas to life and blew me away as always!

I tried to incorporate the bow theme into most of the desserts so for the salted caramel macarons we hand painted a gold bow on top.

I love tiny details so we added mini bows to the round rice krispy treats.

I had too many ideas for her cake and couldn’t commit to just one main cake design so I decided to do three cakes instead…I guess that is one perk of owning a bakeshop!  For the first one we did a gold glitter fondant with a mint and white polka dot large bow!

Next we did mini salted caramel tarts and accented them with mini pink chocolate bows!

I have a love affair with panna cotta so we did vanilla panna cotta shot glasses with a raspberry coulis on top!  Love these little spoons I believe I got from Shop Sweet Lulu too!

A customer fav and mini too are our Red Velvet cake lollipops that we dipped in white chocolate, add mint green modeling chocolate dots and a pink bow.  I also had fun using a variety of pink and gold stands as well from our collection and a lot of them are up for sale on our supply store Sweet & Saucy Supply!

I am so excited about my recent collaboration with Little Cat Design Co as she creates the cutest cake and dessert toppers out there!  She crafted this fabulous topper for Blake, as well as the mini wooden bows on the large cupcakes and the #1 on her smash cake!  We can’t wait until we start selling Katherine’s designs in our stores as well as online, which hopefully should be done in the next month or two.

For the main cake I wanted to keep it not too busy since the topper was the main show stopper so we did a simple pretty pink bow, large gold dot garland, and also crimped the edges of the tiers to add a little more detail.

One of my favorite parts of the whole table was the cake below!  I dreamed up the idea of having these bows painted all over the cake once I saw a print like it on pinterest and Kyong brought it to life perfectly!

We made some large strawberry cupcakes with chocolate ganache filling and dressed them up with ruffle frosting, bow toppers and gold cupcake holders.

At almost all my friend’s parties they always request our sugar cookies so I knew I needed to have some cute bow cookies on the menu for the party…

Last, but not least our ever popular mini key lime pies…cute as ever!

We are so blessed to live life with such a great community of people and so many of our friends have kiddos around Blake’s same age which always proves to be loads of fun when we get together!

My sweet sister made these adorable headband favors for the little girls at the party.  You can check out her shop on etsy at SaraRaeShop 

Love my girlfriends!!!

Of course Blake needed a smash cake as well.  We did a simple mint buttercream cake with a cute little bow, polka dots, and another adorable topper from Little Cat Design Co

I had a feeling my little girl would attack the cake (she is a girl after my own heart) and she did exactly that!  She got right in there and we all loved every moment!

Of course she got to the moment of cake overload and clearly was DONE!

This is such a sweet photo below since both Angel and Christina had their sweet babies in March as well with me and we have enjoyed sharing so many precious moments of motherhood together.

This is the best photo we could get of all the kids…this day was clearly tons of fun and we were so blessed by everyone that came!

 

 

Cakes I have yet to share…

Thursday, April 11th, 2013

Time seriously goes by so fast and I can’t believe how many cakes I have yet to share with you guys that we did last year!  This post is a gathering of various photo shoots and weddings we were blessed to be a part of…hope you enjoy!

Most of the cakes below were shot by the amazing Jen Huang!  Her photos are simply gorgeous and I was so lucky to work with her on this shoot…some of my favorite cakes came out of it!  Major props to Kyong who always brings my visions to life when it comes to cakes!

I just love sugar flowers! My sister and I teamed up for this next cake and the turquoise sugar flowers below as well and I really adore how they turned out!

Bold and intense patterns below…

Simple, but cute!

Hand painting on cakes is one of my favorites new trends…

Color blocking is always fun on cakes these days…

Why not send your message through a cake design!

Another fun pattern that came to life perfectly on a cake.

Inspired by a moroccan theme we came up with golden bronze tiles and turquoise sugar flowers.

Might be one of my favorite cakes of all time below…I absolutely am smitten with the flowing sugar ribbons!

This next cake we did for a shoot with Mark Brooke Photography! We again used the hand painting technique and then added sugar roses.

Lastly these next two real weddings were so dreamy looking I had to add them to the post as well.  The cake isn’t our original design (the bride requested it from a photo she saw), but I love it and think it fits perfectly with the decor!

I always love working with Found Vintage Rentals since we get to use the cutest tables for our displays then.  Below is a fun set up  of a wedding last year!

I also wanted to let you know of two new classes we have added this month!  I will be teaching another fondant basics class since our first one went so well!  The class will be Sunday April 21st 3-6pm at the LB location.  You will learn how to cover a square and round cake, our tricks of the trade with fondant & stacking cakes, how to crimp, use stencils, bows, basic molds, and more.  It is $350 for the class which includes the supplies and there are only a couple more spots open. The other class my sister will be teaching and it’s Sunday April 28th 2-6pm at the LB location.  This class will be on the Dahlia & Poppy Sugar Flowers!  It is $215 and has a couple spots open as well.  Please email or call the LB shop to reserve your spot today!  info@sweetandsaucyshop.com

 

Easter Desserts + Gorgeous Spring Shoot with Ruche

Thursday, March 21st, 2013

It’s not everyday you get to see your desserts alongside models, so this post is super fun to share!  Our consultant Jenny worked with Ruche and helped design some gorgeous cakes and desserts for their Spring time photo shoot with the amazing Stephanie Williams (her photos always make me swoon).  I absolutely love everything Ruche and shop there myself, so definitely check them out!

These images seem like they are straight out of a movie…I’m in love!

And a real bunny…so cute!

Cake and jewelry are a girls best friend you know!

Well since Spring time is officially here and Easter is right around the corner I thought I would share with you our Easter themed desserts for this year!  We have lots of pretty cute goodies for you and plenty of packaged desserts to fill those Easter baskets up with!  Definitely pre-order since most of these style desserts will go quickly the day before Easter and we are closed on Sunday so our staff can enjoy time with their family and friends too!  We also have plenty of mini desserts like Passion Fruit Panna Cotta, Mini Key Lime Pies, or Strawberry Shortcake Shot Glasses to fill your Easter table with delicious desserts.

First up these adorable baby chick, chevron Easter egg, and bunny cake pops!

For cupcakes we can do little nests, pretty flowers, or little baby chicks.  For mini cupcakes we can accent them with little Easter eggs!

Some more fun pops!

Our XOXO rice krispy treats all bagged up were so popular for Valentine’s Day that we thought we would create some for Easter and did some cute little eggs all pretty and ready to be eaten!

Of course we have to do our customer favorite sugar cookies!  Love the polka dot bunny!


And lastly for French Macarons we have specialty Easter bunnies and little eggs.  Of course you can just get an assortment of our regular macarons in pretty colors too! We can package them in our boxes as well which come in small size 4-5 macarons or large size 8-9 macarons.

Note: Easter egg macaron is same price as the bunny macaron.

Thanks so much for stopping by the blog and I hope you have  Happy Easter!

Baby Shower for Ashley & Parker Rose

Wednesday, 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!

This might be one of my favorite cakes we have ever made a Sweet & Saucy Shop.  I got inspired by the beautiful watercolor I saw on a wedding dress via pinterest and knew we could make a gorgeous cake from that. I love how the burst of color is at the bottom of the cake and then it goes up to all white at the top.  I decided to do an all white magnolia sugar flower so that it blended in to the top of the cake and kept it modern and clean looking.  Kyong did the lovely watercolor hand painting and I just love how it turned out!
