One of My Favorite Cakes!

Monday, June 20th, 2011

We get to make lots of wedding cakes during the year, but certain cakes come along and make me so inspired and this cake was one of them!  I loved designing the cake based off of a wedding dress from Anthropologie’s new wedding website BHLDN and then meshing it with the style of the bride’s wedding design.  They were a wonderful couple to work with and I think their wedding just turned out dream-like.  They got married at the gorgeous Rancho Las Lomas and of course has Found Vintage Rentals to deck out the whole venue with their amazing furniture pieces & rentals.  White Haute Photography snapped the stunning images and Larissa from, Inviting Occasions, did the lovely florals.  You can check out all the other great venues down below!

We not only did a wedding cake, but a fun mini dessert spread and a vintage baseball glove as well for the groom that LOVES baseball!

Like I said this has to be one of my favorite cake designs.  It has so much texture and design, but is still modern and clean looking.  I basically did all the sugar flowers and lace molds by hand and then accented some pieces with pewter silver.  Here is the dress from BHLDN that inspired me!

Wedding Cake Time!

Tuesday, February 15th, 2011

Thanks so much for your sweet comments from our last wedding cake post!  I am excited to share some new designs with you today as well!

This first cake design I got inspired to create based off a intricate print.  I loved how the bride & groom silhouettes were surrounded by words that described marriage & their relationship.  I also love the color scheme of blush pink and grey…overall I was quite happy with it!

Kyong did a great joy hand painting all the details on this cake…it definitely was a labor of love!

These next three cakes were all for one wedding.  The bride couldn’t make up her mind about just one design, so instead we did three completely different techniques on three different cakes for her, while keeping with her same color scheme.

Kyong hand painted these gorgeous, delicate branches & added two fondant love birds.  The design matched the bride & groom’s invitation.

Up next was a simplistic two tier wedding cake we did for a modern Hawaiian style wedding.  I loved the texture on the cake with the pearlized finish and then we simply accented it with multiple burnt orange sugar flower dahlias.

All buttercream cake below with detailed piping that matched the bride’s invitation.

The bride wanted lots and lots of gold and that’s what we gave her!  We also incorporated a touch of brown & then a deep red in the garden rose sugar flower.

This next cake is a great example of an inexpensive cake that still looks gorgeous…I love the mixture of rustic, yet elegant!

My idea of an all-white wedding cake…lots of detail & texture, but still simplistic & modern.

I do have to say I love gardenia sugar flowers!

This last cake is both elegant and romantic…I love the combination of blush pink & gold together!

This next cake is a completely different style…modern, bold, and very unique!  We based the cake off the design of the bride & groom’s invitation and I was very excited to see it come to life.  Did I mention that is was HUGE!

This dahlia sugar flower that my sister made has to be one of my favorites ever and the sugar threads that we made brought the design full circle.

Lastly, this mustard yellow vintage lace cake was a pleasure to make.  Kyong and I loved the look of this cake and placing it on a wooden log pulled it all together!

Utterly Engaged Feature!

Thursday, August 26th, 2010

I had the pleasure of working with the lovely ladies from Utterly Engaged again for their 1 year anniversary issue!  When I heard the idea for the shoot, “Sew in Love”, and then the amazing team I was going to get to work with I was SOOO excited! The team included…Art Direction & Stylist by Sugar and FluffLucia of DL/sh Design and UtterlyEngaged, and props & design from Jeni from Found Vintage Rentals!  The fabulous florals were from my girl Carissa from JL Designs…she never disappoints! Also the paper painted bouquets by Kristy Rice of Momental Designs were too much fun! I have to say a major thank you to Paula & Mike from Luna Photo for the gorgeous photos; I absolutely love working with them!  Here’s some of the pages from the online magazine!

Lucia was sweet enough to send me over a couple more photos from the shoot and I had to post them!  I loved making this cake & seeing it come to life.  We made lots of custom vintage molds & put sugar paste in them & then painted them.  I loved how it turned out!

We’ve recently been starting to make a lot of french macaroons at the shop and boy can I tell you that I am now addicted to them! My talented assistant pastry chef Susie has been coming up with so many scrumptious options that I think I’ve gained 5 lbs. just taste testing them!

We also made some yummy little french desserts and drizzled them in pink frosting!  I wanted to make homemade donuts too, but sadly we ran out of time, so lucky me I have a donut shop right next door to my shop & picked some up for props!  Speaking of props…how jealous are you of Jeni from Found Vintage Rentals…her collection is AMAZING!

Thanks again Lucia, Henny, & Eva for this fun opportunity!  The next photos are from the talented Kristin from Kristin Eldridge Photography!  Kristin blesses me all the time with her many talents and again came by my shop and took some photos for me of our new window display….it is quite hard to capture the cutest of it all with the funky windows & reflections, but Kristin did a great job!

Even though my good friend Jesi, from Jesi Haack Weddings, was almost about to pop out a little baby she still was sweet enough to come over to my shop & help me put it all together!  We got inspiration from the recent Martha Stewart Weddings magazine and made the fabric hoops for the main display.  We then hung some flag banners that Jesi had from previous weddings and we were basically all set!
