New Store Front Window Design

Wednesday, July 6th, 2011

Well as many of my blog posts start…”I’ve been meaning to post this for forever”!  I am so in love with my new window design that the talented girls over at Proost Event Design & Planning created for me!  You definitely have to check out their fabulous website and blog as they are quite the talented sisters!

I basically gave them free reign on the backdrop and I love the pops of summery colors they pulled together.  The overall design is so fresh and clean looking…definitely my style!  All my clients love it as much as we do and if you are looking to get pieces created for your party or special day definitely check them out!

My front window is so hard to photograph since there is such bad reflection, but hopefully you can see just how gorgeous it is!

Circus Themed 1st Birthday Party

Wednesday, June 22nd, 2011

I was so happy to find that we were featured on On to Baby, one of my favorite new sites!  We get so many creative parents coming into our shops looking to put together fabulous birthday parties for this children and this mom did a fabulous job!  I love every detail of this circus themed dessert table we got to do and all of the party details are just to die for :)  Thanks so much to Krista Mason for the gorgeous photos!

Lots of fun photo shoots!

Monday, May 16th, 2011

Most of the wedding industry knows that I am pretty addicted to doing photos shoot!  I just love being able to have full control of coming up with a new cake or dessert design and the whole process is really a lot of fun for me since I get to try out new techniques and push the design boundaries :)

This first shoot was such a fun one we did for Styled Magazine, which is a new online magazine that my talented friend Vicky started.  She had a great idea of having one inspirational image and sending it to a bunch of different wedding vendors and seeing what they’d come up with.

Screen shot 2011-03-29 at 1.10.41 PM

I loved this inspiration photo below and immediately wanted to do an out-of-the-box design for this mini cake.

Screen shot 2011-03-29 at 1.01.50 PM

We made white pom pom sugar flowers and then for the cake I thought it would be fun to do the top half of the cake black and the bottom white…I love the bold contrast and once we threw the sprinkles on the cake it just completed it perfectly!

Of course we have to add some cute french macarons to the shoot and we even sprinkled them with the colorful sprinkles too…

This next shoot was for another online wedding magazine called NonPareil.  I was so excited to be featured in it as well and for this shoot we took a more modern, clean, preppy approach to the design.  I got to work with Vicky, from City Cradle Design, again, The Floral Lab, who did the beautiful flowers, and the talented Jackie Wonders snapped the gorgeous photos!

We created two flavors of french macarons for the shoot, a large cake, and accented the table with some fun bright candy!

I love the look of grey, yellow and white together and I thought the bold pops of color and pattern on the cake turned out nicely.

Lastly I had the pleasure of working with a fabulous team on this next shoot.  I love the combo of green and white together and this shoot shows why! Kathy & Susan from Bella Weddings & Events did the planning & design, Carissa, from JL Designs, did the stunning florals, and Leila, from Be Inspired PR, produced the whole shoot!  You can check out the rest of the amazing team down below! Also big thanks to Barnaby Draper Studios for the great photos!

The whole shoot was at the Vibiana in LA ad I have to say it is one of the most breathtaking venues in California!

For the wedding cake we wanted to keep it all white on white, but add plenty of gorgeous texture to it, so we made sugar patterns and lace to accent the tiers and piped on small white dots to accent it.

We also did some bright green apples dipped in white chocolate…love the color contrast!

Tori & Dean: sTORIbook Wedding

Thursday, April 21st, 2011

I am so excited to share this post with you!!!  We have loved working with Tori & Dean on their new show “sTORIbook Weddings“!  We taped three weddings with them and our first wedding they are airing is the Shabby Chic themed wedding we got to work on with Jeni & Alyson from, Found Vintage Rentals, who provided all the fabulous vintage rentals and Jaclyne of Heavenly Blooms did the gorgeous florals!

I had a crazy idea of hanging small cakes inside wire birdcages and then having Jaclyne hang florals in jars as well and I have to say my vision came to life pretty well!

We accented the mini cupcakes we vintage fondant flowers.
