Bows, Ribbons & Frills

Wednesday, July 7th, 2010

Wedding season is still upon us and that means LOTS of cakes to share with you! This first wedding was actually from last year & it was for a friend of mine!  It was a pleasure making their cake & mini cupcakes & overall I was really happy with their white and white wedding cake!  They wanted elegant and I think that’s what I gave them!

We made white sugar peonies for the top of the cake, a large sugar bow for the middle, brush embroidery flowers, and fondant draping to resemble her dress.

The cake was on a table all by itself so it would stand out and then they also had a table full of mini cupcakes!

Lastly we had the pleasure of doing a wedding cake & anniversary cake for a sweet couple at Rancho Las Lomas.

I loved the lace, ribbons, and large fushia garden rose!

They wanted a little bird topper too, so we did a sculpted pair & painted them in a champagne shimmer.

The sweet bride also wanted to surprise her parents with an anniversary cake since they were celebrating their special day along with them!  They wanted to keep it simplistic & use fresh succulents…I love the look of it!

Well get ready for another random post full of lots of photos!  After a couple weeks at the shop I always have plenty of random orders that I photography (with my new camera of course!), so I thought today would be a good day to show them off! Hope you enjoy!

First up an adorable communion cake I did for a little girl.  I love how the clouds turned out! We used an edible frosting sheet to print the angels and verse and then piped a pearl border around it.

Since the clouds were just too much fun I thought I would show a quick tutorial on how we made them.  First roll random size balls of fondant and stick them together with a little dab of water or egg whites.  Then roll a thin sheet of fondant and cover the balls.  Next sculpt around the balls to form one large cloud.  And finally I airbrushed the whole cake with pearl luster dust to give it a shimmer.

Next we did a gorgeous homespun style cake and cupcakes for the sweetest bride! They LOVED our red velvet, so they got a small two tier cake and lots of yummy cupcakes for their guests.  I love when my clients are so much fun to work with!  I also had to snap some photos of the beautiful flowers they had…I love the rustic, wildflower look!

Another fun cake I got to make recently was a Lego style cake for a cute little boy who turned 4 years old!  They wanted a little Lego firefighter on the cake as well, so I sculpted one for them.  I thought it would be fun to incorporate the Lego style with the wording too, so Tim designed the graphics for his name and age…I thought they turned out great!

We love doing custom orders too, so these next photos are some special orders we did for our clients.  First up are some custom decorated cake lollipops for a recent baby shower.

Next we did some logo style brownies for a recent birthday party.

I love when our clients come to us with fun ideas!  Our client wanted to surprise her boyfriend for his birthday with custom cupcakes that had his face on it…how great are these!

Another fun surprise was when I was asked by Tiffany’s in South Coast Plaza to make a cake for one of their client’s anniversary.  They wanted lots of sugar peonies and pearls!
