Recently at Sweet & Saucy Shop we have been getting a lot of custom cake orders that don’t have anything to do with weddings! It has been a lot of fun to see how we can turn cake into such fun shapes and of course the reactions we get from our clients make it worth all the effort!
This first cake I did a few months back for a 50th Birthday Bash that was all centered around The GodFather. Paige from Bash Co Events & Kelly from Yes Please Design put the party on and needed a Horse Head Cake so I guess I was the lady to call. Kelly not only does design & florals, but she also does amazing mini cupcakes too & provided the desserts for the table. I had a great time working with these two talented ladies & of course have to share some of the photos from this fabulous party! Thanks to Charley Star for these great images!
Kelly did an amazing sketch of what she wanted to have the dessert table look like & I really think it all came together!
They wanted a horse head on a platter, but didn’t want it too gruesome looking. I took the approach of more of a sculpture style look to it and choose not to give it realistic eyes, but rather keep the whole cake one color.
Here it was being brought out to the birthday boy! Of course it had to be Red Velvet Cake inside!
I just LOVED the cannolis they did…too much fun!
Here are a couple close up shots I took at the bakery! Kelly wanted me to base the cake off of this Anthropologie candle.
Overall this party was a lot of fun & I’m so glad I could add to the excitement of the night!
Last week we also had the chance to make a really fun and REALLY LARGE cake in the shape of a Coca Cola Bottle! The cake was a birthday surprise for a lady who loved her some Coca Cola! The cake was about 3 1/2 feet long and we even split the cake into 3 flavor sections! They had Red Velvet, Coconut, & Chocolate Espresso Cake!
Kyong and I basically tag teamed this large cake and overall I was really happy with how it turned out!
Here are some start to finish photos…
Once we airbrushed it and added the lettering it was a real looking bottle! This particular bottle is a special edition version of Coca Cola and was quite a lot of fun to mimic.
We had coke spilling out of the bottle and painted the birthday girl’s name on it.
Of course our sweet Hayley had to get in on the fun too! We are so glad to have her on the team full time along with Kyong! The team is growing and we are loving it!
