Martha Stewart Wedding Magazine: Leila & Tony’s Wedding

Friday, February 8th, 2013

I have been wanting to share this for some time now since the magazine has been out for a while now, but here is it…

Martha-Stewart-Weddings-Spring-2012-Cover

A couple years back I had the pleasure of doing the cakes for Leila & Tony’s wedding and I have to say it was a stunning day!  The whole wedding was featured in the Spring 2012 issue of Martha Stewart Weddings Magazine.  Leila is the head of Be Inspired PR and it was my pleasure to be a part of her wedding day!

Leila wanted six cakes, all with different textures in buttercream and fondant and then Carissa, from JL Designs added fresh florals & figs to the cakes!  I absolutely adore the set up of the cakes!

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!

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

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.

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

Wedding Nouveau Magazine Feature

Wednesday, May 9th, 2012

I am so happy to share these gorgeous photos from the recent new issue of Wedding Nouveau! I was asked to be a part of the shoot for their main spread in the magazine and once they sent me over the inspiration photos I was completely enthralled. The theme was Parisian Souk and Abby, from Style Me Pretty, who featured the shoot said it perfectly when she described it as, “Luxe, cultural, and overflowing with so much pretty!”  Picotte Weddings photographed the whole day and I have to say her photos are stunning!  You can check out all the other wonderful vendors who were apart of this fabulous shoot at the end of the post!

You can see the whole magazine if you click on this link…enjoy!

For the cake we did a mini two tier that was then able to fit inside this amazing lantern…it was the centerpiece for the whole table and I loved how it turned out!

I wanted the cake to look rich in color and design, but also have vibrant pops of color too!  The turquoise, coral, and gold were such a lovely combo together that is makes me want to design more cakes with this color scheme!

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!

Desert Elopement Photo Shoot

Monday, April 16th, 2012

Well you if frequent wedding blogs a lot you most likely saw the lovely post that Style Me Pretty did on this gorgeous shoot I got to be a part of last Friday!  Abby called the shoot “Vintage Desert Chic” and I quite like the name she gave it!  Megan Hartley, who took all the beautiful photos, asked me to be a part of the shoot and I jumped at the chance.  The inspiration board that Whitney, from Whit Mitt Design & Events, had come up with was breathtaking and I knew the shoot would be gorgeous!  I actually went to school with both of these ladies and I even got to do the desserts for Whitney’s lovely wedding!  She had now gone into the wedding business as well and I think she has quite the talent for it!

For the cake I wanted to veer off of the traditional white wedding cake and do a subtle taupe color for the base.  Then we accented the cake with a sugar succulent and some tiny dogwood flowers.  For the topper I had Kyong make a ball of yarn and then a tiny spool as well with the bride & groom’s initials etched on it!  We also crimped the top of each tier to give it some texture and then wrapped some edible yarn around the base tier.

Since it was a smaller size cake I thought it would be fun to do some cupcakes as well and we accented them with tiny sugar flowers too!

When Sugar & Fluff first asked us to do the cakes they gave a us a rough draft sketch of their thoughts and ideas for the cakes along with an inspiration board and it was really fun bringing their vision to life and then seeing it photographed!

For the wedding cakes we used a mixture of sugar crystals and pearls to creative this fun new texture that had whimsy and dimension to it.  To add another element to the cake we then we made sugar like star bursts as accents for the cakes.
