Wedding Cake Time!

Tuesday, February 15th, 2011

Thanks so much for your sweet comments from our last wedding cake post!  I am excited to share some new designs with you today as well!

This first cake design I got inspired to create based off a intricate print.  I loved how the bride & groom silhouettes were surrounded by words that described marriage & their relationship.  I also love the color scheme of blush pink and grey…overall I was quite happy with it!

Kyong did a great joy hand painting all the details on this cake…it definitely was a labor of love!

These next three cakes were all for one wedding.  The bride couldn’t make up her mind about just one design, so instead we did three completely different techniques on three different cakes for her, while keeping with her same color scheme.

Kyong hand painted these gorgeous, delicate branches & added two fondant love birds.  The design matched the bride & groom’s invitation.

Up next was a simplistic two tier wedding cake we did for a modern Hawaiian style wedding.  I loved the texture on the cake with the pearlized finish and then we simply accented it with multiple burnt orange sugar flower dahlias.

The bride wanted lots and lots of gold and that’s what we gave her!  We also incorporated a touch of brown & then a deep red in the garden rose sugar flower.

This next cake is a great example of an inexpensive cake that still looks gorgeous…I love the mixture of rustic, yet elegant!

My idea of an all-white wedding cake…lots of detail & texture, but still simplistic & modern.

I do have to say I love gardenia sugar flowers!

Recent Cakes from Sweet & Saucy Shop

I’m still trying to catch up on blog posting some cakes that we had the pleasure of making last year!  I have been so blessed to have such an amazing team behind me this past year and am excited as we go into this next year full of new couples, new cakes, and lots of fun times!

First up is a cake that I was so excited to work on!  This cake definitely has the most sugar flowers we’ve ever done before and I loved it.  We wanted it to be romantic and elegant and I think we did it!

This next cake was a challenge that I was up to.  The bride worked for the Girl Scout Company and wanted to implement the cookies onto the main wedding cake and 4 small side cakes as well.  I painted the cookies with edible gold paint and then added some chocolate jewels & bottoms too.  I really was thrilled with how it all turned out!

This black and white cake below is one that Kyong and I dreamed up.  I love having Kyong hand paint on our cakes so we came up with a look that we liked and let her go to town.  We accented it with a huge white sugar rose on top and it was finished!

Not all cakes are elegant & girlie, this next cake is full of modern fun with a whimsical flair.  We used hand cut fondant pieces and then painted on the cake as well.  The shape is unique too because instead of traditional rounds the bride wanted hexagon shapes.

Next up we did a traditional elegant wedding cake with a vintage twist.  We did brush embroidery on two of the tiers, mimicked the brides jeweled band on her wedding dress for one tier, and then lastly added a single blush pink garden rose to the bottom tier.

I love the look of bright colors, textures, and multiple cakes when done in the right way and I think we managed to pull it off with this next wedding.  Thanks to Jasmine Star for the photo below!

And lastly, normally draping isn’t my look, but I really did like this traditional style cake that we created.  I think the monochromatic look of it makes it look a little modern, but still very elegant and traditional.

High School Sweethearts

Thursday, March 11th, 2010

I have definitely been waiting a while to be able to post this wedding!  Right from the start I was super excited to work with this particular bride & groom because I actually had the pleasure of going to high school with both of them!  I was student body president and Ashley was president of her freshman class…to say the least we hit it off perfectly the first time we met during student council meetings.  My husband even ended up playing soccer with her husband Tommy too!  I absolutely love being able to make wedding cakes for people I know and help them celebrate their special day!  Ashley & her mother have amazing style and are incredibly gorgeous, so I knew the wedding would be one for the books…and boy was I right! They hired on an amazing team of vendors including Brooke Keegan, as the wedding planner, Aaron Delesie, who took the amazing photos, and Annette Gomez did the incredible floral decor!

Since this wedding will inspire and probably leave you wanting to know more I highly recommend checking out Style Me Pretty’s feature as well which gives lots and lots of details!  And just a warning…Ashley will most definitely make you jealous of her beauty so beware!

For the wedding cake Ashley wanted something elegant and dreamy!  She loved the idea of having sugar pearls and sugar crystals on the cake and her mother also found a vintage bride & groom cake topper, which I adored!  We decided on add one large sugar peony and let the cake rest of a simple clear cake stand, as if it was floating on nothing at all.

I wish Ashley & Tommy all the blessings in the whole and absolutely love that they live right by my bakery so they can pop in and say hi once in a while!
