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

 

Easter Desserts + Gorgeous Spring Shoot with Ruche

Thursday, March 21st, 2013

It’s not everyday you get to see your desserts alongside models, so this post is super fun to share!  Our consultant Jenny worked with Ruche and helped design some gorgeous cakes and desserts for their Spring time photo shoot with the amazing Stephanie Williams (her photos always make me swoon).  I absolutely love everything Ruche and shop there myself, so definitely check them out!

These images seem like they are straight out of a movie…I’m in love!

And a real bunny…so cute!

Cake and jewelry are a girls best friend you know!

Well since Spring time is officially here and Easter is right around the corner I thought I would share with you our Easter themed desserts for this year!  We have lots of pretty cute goodies for you and plenty of packaged desserts to fill those Easter baskets up with!  Definitely pre-order since most of these style desserts will go quickly the day before Easter and we are closed on Sunday so our staff can enjoy time with their family and friends too!  We also have plenty of mini desserts like Passion Fruit Panna Cotta, Mini Key Lime Pies, or Strawberry Shortcake Shot Glasses to fill your Easter table with delicious desserts.

First up these adorable baby chick, chevron Easter egg, and bunny cake pops!

For cupcakes we can do little nests, pretty flowers, or little baby chicks.  For mini cupcakes we can accent them with little Easter eggs!

Some more fun pops!

Our XOXO rice krispy treats all bagged up were so popular for Valentine’s Day that we thought we would create some for Easter and did some cute little eggs all pretty and ready to be eaten!

Of course we have to do our customer favorite sugar cookies!  Love the polka dot bunny!


And lastly for French Macarons we have specialty Easter bunnies and little eggs.  Of course you can just get an assortment of our regular macarons in pretty colors too! We can package them in our boxes as well which come in small size 4-5 macarons or large size 8-9 macarons.

Note: Easter egg macaron is same price as the bunny macaron.

Thanks so much for stopping by the blog and I hope you have  Happy Easter!

Featured!!!

Tuesday, February 19th, 2013

Something that is always sure to put a smile on my face is to see our work in print, online, or in a book!  We have been so blessed this past year to be featured in some great magazines, websites, and books and below are a couple recent ones!

A month ago I was asked by Martha Stewart Weddings to design a cake based on their color palette series they were bringing back for their blog The Bride’s Guide and of course I jumped at the chance!  The color palette they wanted me to focus on was shades of pink, which I have to say I was pretty happy about!  I love pink and with Valentine’s thoughts running through my head it was a perfect time to design!  I had recently noticed the Wedding Chicks amazing pattern on their website and thought it would be a great design for a cake one day and so when I got asked to do this cake I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to try it out!  Below is the cake, the inspiration, and the feature on The Bride’s Guide!  Thanks to my sister for the photos she snapped of the cake!

Our new addition to our fondant team, Kasey, headed up this project and I think she did an amazing job executing my design!

Another fun feature we recently got in was for Martha Stewart Destination Weddings!  This was a last minute request from the magazine for a couple who got married in Palm Springs!  They already had their wedding cake that came with their hotel package in Palm Springs, but the magazine wanted gorgeous sugar flowers to accent it so they asked us to create them!  My sister did an amazing job with the sugar flowers and it was so fun seeing them in print!

We were lucky enough to be featured in The Knot Southern California for a wedding too that we did with Constance Curtis Events and Aaron Young Photography took the great photos!

Lastly we got featured in the UK’s You & Your Wedding Magazine with Kristeen Labrot Events and Jose Villa!  Love getting to work with so many talented people!

I also wanted to mention we have a couple spots left for our sugar flower class this Sunday from 2-6pm at our LB Bakery.  The class will teach you how to master the sugar peony and sugar rose, which are our two most popular sugar flowers!  The class is $215. If you are interested email us asap at info@sweetandsaucyshop.com to get more info and reserve your spot.

The other class that we have on the books is the last buttercream techniques class I will be teaching for a while.  We have had 3 great classes so far and our students have mastered the rustic, line buttercream, sugar encrusting, dots, and of course the most exciting ombre buttercream.  This class is Sunday, March 24th from 3-6pm for $185.  Email us at info@sweetandsaucyshop.com to sign up!

Baby Shower for Ashley & Parker Rose

Wednesday, February 6th, 2013

Get ready for a lot of PRETTY!  I am SO in love with this baby shower that we got to throw for the sweet & talented Ashley Rose and her little baby Parker London!  The team of ladies behind this special day made it a dream come true to put together….Jesi Haack – Jesi Haack Design, Carissa – JL Designs, Karrie & Elizabeth – Posh Paperie, and Ala – Love Ala who took the gorgeous photos!

We decided to go all out girlie for Ashley’s shower and did lots of gold and pink and SPARKLE, SPARKLE, SPARKLE!!!

Love the backdrop Jesi made for the dessert station!

To add a little extra cuteness to these rice krispy treats we hand painted little arrows & parker’s initials on them!

Karrie & Elizabeth always blow me away with their invitation and paper design!  Love dreaming up my dessert bars after I see their designs!

How amazing are Carissa’s florals!?!  And gold, sparkle dinos…I die!

Giant balloons are one trend that I am still in love with and think forever will be…

This might be one of my fav dessert spreads yet for a party!  I just loved getting to add all the girlie details to it!

Of course we had to do some ice cream cone cake pops, “P” sugar cookies and sparkle macarons!

Don’t you just love Ashley’s dress too!  She is such a beautiful mommy!

Simple, cute and modern is what we went with for the cake and I love how it turned out!

Ashley I am so blessed by your friendship and think little Parker London is just the sweetest baby ever…besides Blake of course :)  Congrats!

 

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!

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!

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!

More Custom Cakes from Sweet & Saucy

Friday, September 21st, 2012

Get ready for some cakes!  First up is one of the most tedious, time consuming cakes we have done yet!  This indian inspired groom’s cake was a team effort between all of us ladies and overall I am pretty thrilled with it.  The client brought a photo in that he wanted us to replicate, so the design isn’t ours although we changed the patterns up a little bit, but is was so fun to see it come to life!  Almost the entire cake was edible and we only used rice krispy treats for the bottom of his legs and bottom of his trunk!
