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!

Valentine’s Day Photoshoot

Monday, February 11th, 2013

I was so happy to be a part of this fun children’s Valentine’s Day photo shoot at Granola Babies!  Lyndsey from Jack & Lola Photography took all the great photos and my sister, Sara from SaraRaeShop provided all the headbands, and the cute bow ties are from Haddon Co.!

Sara’s headbands are basically to die for!

Gotta love little ones shoving their faces with treats!

Guess he liked it…

 

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!

 

Anthropologie + Oh Joy

Thursday, September 13th, 2012

If you would of asked me a couple years back if I ever thought I would be doing desserts for Anthropologie and Oh Joy I would’ve said “No way”…well guess what?!?  I was lucky enough to be a part of such a fun event that was held at Anthropologie and you bet I was smiling all night long!  Joy, from Oh Joy, was the main attraction for their new line of Petite clothing and it was so fun finally getting to meet her in person!

The lovely Bonnie Tsang took that fabulous photo of Joy…love her work!  The event was such a success and for anyone that knows me I am obsessed with Anthropologie and shop there now-stop, so you know I enjoyed every minute!

I can’t thank Kristin, from Kristin Eldridge Photography, enough for these gorgeous photos of my desserts!  She seriously always blows me away when she photographs my stuff…love every photo!

 

For the desserts we decided to do some crowd pleasers and set them out on some of my favorite stands…vintage peach & clear glass, jadeite and milk stands!  First up always a popular one the mini key lime pies!

Mini cheesecakes with fresh raspberries and salted caramel french macarons.

Strawberry french macarons…

Our decadent brownies cut into triangles for a fun presentation.

Our #1 selling cupcake in Newport Beach…S’mores!

We had such a great time at this event!  Thanks so much for stopping by the blog!
