Desert Elopement Photo Shoot

Monday, April 16th, 2012

Well you if frequent wedding blogs a lot you most likely saw the lovely post that Style Me Pretty did on this gorgeous shoot I got to be a part of last Friday!  Abby called the shoot “Vintage Desert Chic” and I quite like the name she gave it!  Megan Hartley, who took all the beautiful photos, asked me to be a part of the shoot and I jumped at the chance.  The inspiration board that Whitney, from Whit Mitt Design & Events, had come up with was breathtaking and I knew the shoot would be gorgeous!  I actually went to school with both of these ladies and I even got to do the desserts for Whitney’s lovely wedding!  She had now gone into the wedding business as well and I think she has quite the talent for it!

For the cake I wanted to veer off of the traditional white wedding cake and do a subtle taupe color for the base.  Then we accented the cake with a sugar succulent and some tiny dogwood flowers.  For the topper I had Kyong make a ball of yarn and then a tiny spool as well with the bride & groom’s initials etched on it!  We also crimped the top of each tier to give it some texture and then wrapped some edible yarn around the base tier.

Since it was a smaller size cake I thought it would be fun to do some cupcakes as well and we accented them with tiny sugar flowers too!

I think I might have posted this Girl Scout Cookie Cake I did a while back, but here is the whole set up which I just had to show! Since the bride works for Girl Scouts she wanted to incorporate the cookies into her cake, but in a elegant way.  I painted them with edible gold and then had them cascading down the cake.

Then we created four side cakes with our rustic cream cheese frosting and accented them with four more cookie types!

One of My Favorite Cakes!

Monday, June 20th, 2011

We get to make lots of wedding cakes during the year, but certain cakes come along and make me so inspired and this cake was one of them!  I loved designing the cake based off of a wedding dress from Anthropologie’s new wedding website BHLDN and then meshing it with the style of the bride’s wedding design.  They were a wonderful couple to work with and I think their wedding just turned out dream-like.  They got married at the gorgeous Rancho Las Lomas and of course has Found Vintage Rentals to deck out the whole venue with their amazing furniture pieces & rentals.  White Haute Photography snapped the stunning images and Larissa from, Inviting Occasions, did the lovely florals.  You can check out all the other great venues down below!

Like I said this has to be one of my favorite cake designs.  It has so much texture and design, but is still modern and clean looking.  I basically did all the sugar flowers and lace molds by hand and then accented some pieces with pewter silver.  Here is the dress from BHLDN that inspired me!

Dreamy Wedding in Newport Harbor

Wednesday, June 15th, 2011

This past weekend I was at Barnes & Noble bookstore and I happened to pick up The Knot Southern California Magazine.  As I went to look through it I was pleasantly surprised to see that we were featured not one, but FOUR times!!!  To say I was thrilled is an understatement!  We are so lucky to work with such amazing planners, photographers, florists, etc and because of them I am blessed to get in these kind of features!  Leila from Be Inspired PR got us this amazing feature below and I have to say a big THANK YOU to her!

This wedding was shot by the lovely Meg Perotti and the wonderful Courtney, from Joyful Weddings and Events, pulled the whole gorgeous day off!  I get to work with Carissa, from JL Designs, quite a bit and I have to say that this might be one of my favorite weddings she has done…the florals are just breathtaking!  Courtney took the concept of a “beach wedding” to a whole new level and I loved how it all turned out!

For the cakes we did a rustic trio of cakes and I have to say I just love this simple homespun look!  We accented them with fresh peonies and with the florals from Carissa and burlap backdrop it was a match made in Heaven.
