Cakes I have yet to share…

Thursday, April 11th, 2013

Time seriously goes by so fast and I can’t believe how many cakes I have yet to share with you guys that we did last year!  This post is a gathering of various photo shoots and weddings we were blessed to be a part of…hope you enjoy!

Most of the cakes below were shot by the amazing Jen Huang!  Her photos are simply gorgeous and I was so lucky to work with her on this shoot…some of my favorite cakes came out of it!  Major props to Kyong who always brings my visions to life when it comes to cakes!

I just love sugar flowers! My sister and I teamed up for this next cake and the turquoise sugar flowers below as well and I really adore how they turned out!

Bold and intense patterns below…

Simple, but cute!

Hand painting on cakes is one of my favorites new trends…

Color blocking is always fun on cakes these days…

Why not send your message through a cake design!

Another fun pattern that came to life perfectly on a cake.

Inspired by a moroccan theme we came up with golden bronze tiles and turquoise sugar flowers.

Might be one of my favorite cakes of all time below…I absolutely am smitten with the flowing sugar ribbons!

This next cake we did for a shoot with Mark Brooke Photography! We again used the hand painting technique and then added sugar roses.

Lastly these next two real weddings were so dreamy looking I had to add them to the post as well.  The cake isn’t our original design (the bride requested it from a photo she saw), but I love it and think it fits perfectly with the decor!

I always love working with Found Vintage Rentals since we get to use the cutest tables for our displays then.  Below is a fun set up  of a wedding last year!

I also wanted to let you know of two new classes we have added this month!  I will be teaching another fondant basics class since our first one went so well!  The class will be Sunday April 21st 3-6pm at the LB location.  You will learn how to cover a square and round cake, our tricks of the trade with fondant & stacking cakes, how to crimp, use stencils, bows, basic molds, and more.  It is $350 for the class which includes the supplies and there are only a couple more spots open. The other class my sister will be teaching and it’s Sunday April 28th 2-6pm at the LB location.  This class will be on the Dahlia & Poppy Sugar Flowers!  It is $215 and has a couple spots open as well.  Please email or call the LB shop to reserve your spot today!  info@sweetandsaucyshop.com

 

Summer Wedding Cakes Part II

Wednesday, January 23rd, 2013

Well I am COMPLETELY behind on blogging cakes from last year, so here are some from last summer!  Time sure does fly when you have a 10 month old and two bakeries!  Shout out to my team of cake girls who consistently make gorgeous cakes all year round: Kyong, Irene, Kasey, & Frances, plus Jenna who isn’t with us anymore, but worked on a lot of these lovely cakes!! First up sugar flowers and dot lace…

Summer Wedding Cakes

Wednesday, September 26th, 2012

With summer always comes a time of year where we make more wedding cakes than we can count!  One weekend this summer we even had 45 cakes (wedding & specialty)!  I don’t know how the girls fit it all in the fridges, but they managed and we came out with some beautiful new cake designs!

First up one of my favorites of the season…bright coral sugar peonies, a teal/mint fondant base, and edible white sugar lace doilies.

Next is a more elegant lace cake with a pretty pink bow that has a silver jewel for the center.

This fun cake was a main feature in California Wedding Day Magazine.  They wanted to feature the trend of “ombre” so I decided to do a pink ombre and then add an unexpected pop of turquoise.  We then accented it with some pink sugar ranunculus!

One of our most popular summer cakes is our rustic style frosted wedding cake.  It is such a simple, yet gorgeous sight and I loved how the ladies of BashPlease accented it with these gorgeous florals for a wedding we did with them!

IMG_8777

Our tallest cake of the season is the next one up!  I had to personally go set this one up to make sure it stood up nice and straight and thankfully it turned out great!

IMG_8604

We have lots of Marie Antoinette fans out there and for this wedding they wanted lots of blush pink and gold…dreamy!

IMG_8601

These next photos are right after the set up so the whole room wasn’t finished or cleaned up, but I just had to share all the pretty!

IMG_8600

IMG_8602

Another fun trend we started was the ombre buttercream cake.  I love this yellow one and then the large pop of the teal peony is such a sweet surprise!

Clean and modern defines this next cake with simple navy stripes and gorgeous golden sugar peonies.

IMG_5236

Just had to include this mini wedding cake…a tiny 4″ cake with quilting, sugar pearls, and then accented with a real dahlia.

Thanks so much for stopping by the blog!  Definitely let us know which one was your favorite!

Kentucky Derby Wedding Inspiration

Saturday, May 5th, 2012

Well with the Kentucky Derby this weekend I thought I would share with you a recent photo shoot that I was a part of that features the bright, bold, and fun look of the Derby!  Jessi from You and Me Events asked me to be a part of the shoot and I’m so glad I did as I think the whole shoot turned out gorgeous!  You can check out all the wonderful vendors that were a part of the special day at the bottom of the post!  This shoot was also featured on Green Wedding Shoes this week so you can pop over to their blog to see the full post!

Since the inspiration for the shoot had all of the fun colors I thought I would try something different and do a bold cake with bright sugar flowers.  I thought the ranunculus flower would be perfect and we did them in shades of pink, orange, and yellow. I have to say this might be one of my all time favorite cakes!

Whimsical Warehouse Elopement Photo Shoot

Wednesday, March 7th, 2012

We were all excited to be featured on Green Wedding Shoes yesterday for the recent photo shoot we did!  The lovely girls from over at GATHER Events and Occasions asked me to be a part of this Urban Photo Shoot and I loved the concept. The space was amazing and I absolutely loved everyone on the team’s design that brought together this one of a kind shoot!  You can see all the details and inspiration over at Green Wedding Shoes too!  Thanks to Leah Lee Photography for the fabulous photos and you can see the rest of the wonderful team I got a chance to work with at the end of the post!

Heirloom catering made some of the best looking food for the shoot…they have to be on my top list for “NEED TO TRY” since I have only seen millions of delicious looking photos of their food, but never been able to actually taste it! Hopefully one day soon!

For the cake design I knew I didn’t want to do a traditional white cake, so we paired grey, cream, and peach together and I love the combo!  For the grey bottom you can’t see all the detail we did, but we imprinted the bottom with a doily like pattern to give it texture and detail and then covered the top two tiers in peach fondant.  Then we did a simple sugar lace doily to lay under the cluster of sugar flowers.

Martha Stewart Wedding Magazine – Jose & Joel’s Wedding

Monday, February 27th, 2012

I have been wanting to share this with you for a while now…I was beyond excited during the winter to pick up my first copy of the Martha Stewart Wedding Magazine and actually see my own work in it!  This has been a dream of mine for a while now and I was so thrilled it came true!

I was lucky enough to be a part of Josa Villa and Joel Serrato’s wedding.  If you don’t already know Jose and Joel they are both amazing artists in the wedding industry…Josa is one of the best photographers there is and his images are simply breathtaking and Joel’s films capture weddings like nothing else!  Lisa Vorce was the main design force behind this gorgeous day and pulled it off flawlessly.  I love working with her and getting to see her visions come to life.  I absolutely love getting to work with the talented Elizabeth Messina and her photographers captured the day perfectly!

For the wedding cake we did a two tier fondant cake with all hand made sugar flowers and succulents in various shades.  I love the simplicity of it and letting the sugar flowers take the main stage…definitely my kind of cake design!
