I think this first photo describes exactly how I feel about this birthday party!  I really am so blown away every time one of my favorite customers, Sarah, throws a birthday party for her children.  She has such a gift for party planning and crafting that it should be her full time job!  All of the amazing details she dreamt up below for her son Finn and daughter Scarlett’s birthday party will for sure knock your socks off…enjoy!

And not only is she talented, but I have to say this is one of the cutest little families I’ve EVER seen!

I think every child should have a picture on a pony…I remember always loving looking at my photo of myself riding on a pony…too much fun!

Sarah basically dreamt up the dessert station and cakes all herself and just placed the order with us :)  I love the rentals that she chose to rent from us…the tin ones are new that we got in and I think they fit perfectly with this party!  The other two stands I made from spray painted candle sticks and flea market antique plates.

Frankie’s Vintage Airplane Birthday Party

Wednesday, March 14th, 2012

What happens when your best friend and most talented paper and graphic designer throws her son a first birthday party…you get this THIS!  Karrie, from Karrie Pyke Designs and Posh Paperie, threw the most adorable 1st birthday party for her son Franklin (aka Frankie)!  Frankie is probably one of the most handsome little boy’s I’ve ever seen and my little Blake doesn’t know it yet, but she is going to most likely have a huge crush on Frankie :)

Karrie came up with the theme of “Vintage Airplanes” for his party and I loved it.  Her and her business partner and sister-in-law Elizabeth created such amazing paper and party accents and so it was easy to design a cute cake and some cookies for the party.  I hope these photos inspire you just as much as they have for me…so many ideas and yet so little time!  Jackie Wonders took the most fabulous photos of the whole party…I absolutely love working with her!

Karrie is probably the most crafty person I know and literally has WAY too many good ideas…I get jealous sometimes!

We also made some fun sugar cookies with matching edible image print outs that we got from Karrie’s paper designs…

Crew’s Ombre Surf 1st Birthday Party

Monday, January 2nd, 2012

To start off the New Year right I thought I would blog one of my favorite kid’s parties yet!  My sweet friend and photographer Ashley Rose’s little boy, Crew, turned 1 this year and I was lucky enough to be a part of this amazing party!  Ashley is a super mom and basically did all of the design, decorating, projects, etc for the whole day!

6475661275_9d9624fac7_o

Some of my best girlfriends Elizabeth and Karrie from Posh Paperie created the fabulous invitations and the Wedding Chicks made these adorable printed bags!

For Crew’s birthday desserts we went with the ombre blue color scheme and added some surf themed touches to the desserts.

6475662765_263e06952b_o

I love this new ombre buttercream technique that we have been doing at the shop and thought it would be perfect for Crew’s cake…it’s modern, clean, and bold.  We added a fondant surfboard and some gold fish to the bottom of the cake and voila! Ashley also rented this fab table from Found Vintage Rentals!

6475662603_dcf516a7fa_o

We created some ombre blue cake lollipops and added mini shark fins to the tops of them.  For the bottom of the dish I thought it would be fun put the gold fish again.

6475665705_a06d0debb9_o

We then did some mini cupcakes, vanilla panna cotta shot glasses tinted blue, and chocolate dipped ombre rice crispy treats!

Here is the cutie digging into his cake….love these photos!

Kid’s Cakes

Monday, March 7th, 2011

Well us ladies at Sweet & Saucy Shop don’t only do wedding cakes we also get the chance to make lots of fun kid’s cakes!  Below are some of the recent ones we’ve done…enjoy!

For this fun Toy Story themed cake, Irene did a great job of buttercreaming & piping on this cake, which is quite task if you’ve ever tried and Kyong made the adorable fondant details!

IMG_8562

One of my Dad’s employee’s wanted a NY Yankee themed cake for their little boy’s birthday and I have to say Kyong hit it out of the park :)

For this next princess castle cake I piped lots of pretty vines and added mini sugar flowers to make it whimsical and girlie.

IMG_8568

IMG_8573

This next cake is such a fun one…Kyong designed it and this time around the cake was for a little boy, so of course the ducky needed a little mohawk!

If you want bling, sparkle, and glitz this is the Sweet Sixteen cake for you!

IMG_8602

IMG_8603

IMG_8604

For this cake the client sent us in a photo of this baby carriage that was actually painted on her pregnant belly and wanted to replicate the same painting in cake form, so this is what we came up with!

IMG_8594

IMG_8597

I just have to say that sugar pinwheels make everything cuter…

IMG_8546

IMG_8617

We don’t make lots of topsy turvy cakes at the bakery, but for this 1st birthday we pulled out all the stops and I think it turned out adorable.  The client wanted to pull in her daughter’s initial “R” into the theme of the cake and Kyong came up with this great design!

IMG_8706

IMG_8709

IMG_8708

We also made handpainted sugar cookies and a mini smash cake that matched as well…to cute huh!

IMG_8702

IMG_8710

Lastly we had the fun opportunity to make a Rapunzel cake based of the movie Tangled and so we thought it would be fun to do the tower that Rapuzel lived in with her locks of hair flowing down.  I have to say it was quite a tediously process when I made all the stone wall effect and piped the vines and flowers, but overall I was really happy with it!

MORE Specialty Cakes Coming Your Way!

Monday, October 18th, 2010

Since I couldn’t fit all the specialty cakes in one post I thought I’d do a “Part II”!  First up is a gorgeous 1st birthday cake we did for a sweet little girl!  I especially love the crown on this one!

IMG_3013

This next cake was a fun one that Kyong did amazing at!  Everything is so crisp and clean…I love it!  This cake was for a 70th birthday party for a father & grandfather so the client had us put all the special words that mean something to him on the board. It was also the client’s daughter’s birthday, so we threw in one large chip with a birthday wish on it for her as well!

This cake was made for a special teenage girl who wanted a fabulous cake for her birthday.  Her mother said she always watched all the cake shows & so it was really fun to be able to give her a special cake for her birthday too!

I’m surprised that we haven’t done a Dora cake yet at the shop, but this was really our first one.  It turned out quite cute and I hope the little girl loved it as much as we did!

We’ve done it before, but I do have to say that I never get tired of the pregnant lady silhouette cake…too cute!

IMG_3223

This last spread is special since we got to make the cake & cake lollipops for a friend of mine.  Michelle, from Mi Belle Inc, threw the cutest baby shower for a friend of hers and asked us to do a surf themed cake.  I loved that she set it all up on a real surfboard…what a great idea!

IMG_4668

Of course she had to have some red velvet cake lollipops!

Lots of New Specialty Cakes

Sunday, October 17th, 2010

I have lots of fun specialty cakes to share with you!  My team at the shop is so awesome and I definitely relay on them for SO much around the shop.  Kyong in particular does most of the cakes with me and she is especially talented and loves making special occasion cakes!  A lot of these cakes are all Kyong, so I definitely need to brag about her!  She is a great part of the team and I’m definitely blessed by her!

First up, a groom’s cake we made for a sports lover!  His bride surprised him by combining all three of his favorite teams on one cake!
