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!

Smog Shop Wedding

Monday, May 9th, 2011

I absolutely LOVE working with Angle Swanson from Love and Splendor on weddings!  Her clients always have such amazing design and are equally as sweet!  This wedding that we got to do at The Smog Shoppe was so much fun.  We did an eclectic style dessert bar with some natural woodsy elements and then even got to make a crazy groom’s cake too…

The little succulent flower pots are so adorable as favors and double as their seating arrangement.

Last, but not least the crazy groom’s cake we promised.  The clients both shared a love of collecting these Japanese toy bears that come in all different designs and for the groom’s cake the bride surprised her husband with the wood style Be@rbrick Doll done in cake!  You can check out the real doll here.

Fun Kid’s Cakes

Monday, May 2nd, 2011

We have lots of fun kids cakes to share with you today!  Kyong gets to do most of the kid’s cakes around the bakery and I think she does a fantastic job!  First up the adorable ladybug cake for a little girl’s 1st birthday party!

These cute and funny hippos were actually the main attration for a groom’s cake we did for a recent wedding.  I guess the bride and groom call each other hippos and so they wanted a fun cake to celebrate that!

Crazy Detailed Cakes

Thursday, March 10th, 2011

Sometimes when people call us to order a cake it is for a simple, basic designed cake and then other times we talk with clients who want over the top cakes with tons of detail and lots of their personality in it….these are definitely those types of cakes!

First up this is one of the largest celebration cakes we’ve ever done.  We made this crazy, fun Bat Mitzvah cake for the sweetest girl Abby who actually saw us on TLC’s Fabulous Cakes.  We had a ton of fun incorporating all of her favorite things into this one cake!

One of our great repeat customers wanted a favorite things cake for her husband’s 40th birthday party, so we came up with this wild and crazy cake!

This next cake was for a client who wanted to mimic the golf setting that her husband plays golf at…it was a very interesting concept for a tiered style cake, but Kyong did a great job!

Gotta love the groom’s cakes!  This bride wanted a cake that symbolized her husbands favorite pastime…FOOTBALL of course! And when football is your favorite sport that means a lot of couch time together :)

Lot’s of Fun with Cakes

Tuesday, November 9th, 2010

Definitely trying to get in a couple blog posts this week, so up next are some fun specialty cakes that we recently had a chance to make!  My favorite for sure is the Gucci Purse cake that Kyong and I worked on…we had a great time making it and I’m happy to say the client was thrilled!

IMG_3850

We actually had to hand paint all of the Gucci symbols onto the cake.  It definitely was a tedious project, but I think well worth it.

IMG_3865

We also get make make lots of kid’s cakes and the “Jungle Theme” is quite a popular one!  First up custom cupcakes that Kyong did an amazing job at!

How adorable are those!  Kyong also incorporated these cute little animals onto a recent cake we made.  The cake was covered in chocolate ganache instead of fondant and then accented with fondant pieces.

We also got to do a fun groom’s cake for a great couple.  The groom loved poker so we did a stack of poker chips, while incorporating their wedding colors into the design.

Another groom’s cake that we just made incorporated all of the groom’s loves onto one cake.  It was a surprise too and I just wish I could’ve been there to see his reaction!
