A Watercolor Wedding Shoot

Monday, August 6th, 2012

Get ready for a eye popping gorgeous explosion of colors!  This fun wedding shoot I got to be a part of is full of bright pops of color and inspired by watercolor paintings & pop art.  Katie from, Bella Destinee,  put together the whole shoot and did such a great job!  Scott Clark Photography took the beautiful photos for the shoot and I have to thank Leila from, Wedding Pr, for bringing me on the team for this shoot!

You can take a look at all the wonderful vendors I got to work with at the end of the post!

The paper design and flowers were just stunning I think…

This might be one of my favorite cakes we have ever made a Sweet & Saucy Shop.  I got inspired by the beautiful watercolor I saw on a wedding dress via pinterest and knew we could make a gorgeous cake from that. I love how the burst of color is at the bottom of the cake and then it goes up to all white at the top.  I decided to do an all white magnolia sugar flower so that it blended in to the top of the cake and kept it modern and clean looking.  Kyong did the lovely watercolor hand painting and I just love how it turned out!

We also were able to do a full watercolor inspired mini dessert bar which included mini cupcakes with mini french macarons, cake lollipops, and shot glass desserts!

Recent Cakes from Sweet & Saucy Shop

Tuesday, February 8th, 2011

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.




Thanks so much for stopping by the blog and definitely let us know what you think of the cakes!

Intimate Wedding for Two

Sunday, January 16th, 2011

This is truly a intimate, gorgeous wedding that I’m sharing today.  The bride & groom chose to celebrate the day with just one another and I have to say that is turned out simply beautiful. I had the pleasure of working with the talented team from Lisa Vorce’s company Oh How Charming & of course Aaron Deleise captured these beautiful images.  Here are Lisa’s words…

When Aaron called me to tell me about Brian and Carey’s “wedding for two”, I was delighted! Planning and designing private weddings has become a bit of an obsession for us. Nothing more romantic than a private celebration for two! A little bit different than elopements in that these private celebrations have all the core components of a wedding (i.e. cake cutting, etc) — only difference is there are no guests! So intimate, so special, so incredible.

You can check out their whole post & even a breath-taking video on Style Me Pretty!








I just loved the floral design that Mindy Rice did for their special day!







We did a mini two tier cake just for the bride & groom.  Kyong hand painted this gorgeous print that came from the bride & groom’s china set.

We made some of the couple’s favorites…salted caramel french macaroons, mini cheesecakes with edible gold flowers, hand painted sugar cookies, and mini key lime pies.
