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

 

New Wedding Cake Designs

Friday, November 4th, 2011

I thought I would share some new cake designs we’ve done lately!  Up first one of my favorites from this last summer.  A peacock feather bohemian style head piece inspired the cake design.  We made the cake head piece all out of sugar and then did a white on white pattern for the base of the cake to give it some texture.

I just love the color palette for this cake.

Up next an example of a romantic wedding cake with touches of blush pink and white sugar roses cascading up the front.

This cake is definitely more modern with a bold color and pattern on the base tier and then a sugar peony we colored silver.

This is one of my favorite all white on white wedding cakes…it’s so delicate and romantic looking!

This next cake was inspired by a cake design from The Caketress that one of my clients loved and then we put our own spin on it to incorporate her wedding style and design.

Last but not least a sampling of cakes to mimic the iconic “Cakes” painting by Wayne Thiebaud.  Irene did a great job with all of these cakes and the client loved them!

Rustic Beauty

Sunday, August 14th, 2011

I am so excited to share this gorgeous wedding from Bre, of Joyful Weddings & Events!  It was held at the Fransiscan Gardens in San Juan Capistrano and the gorgeous photos are from Sarah of Frenzel Photography!  I love the outdoor rustic elegance this wedding has…simply beautiful!

Fun Pops of Color

Monday, June 6th, 2011

Sometimes when designing cake I tend to stay to more neutral colors and wouldn’t always think to cover a whole cake in all color, but these next two cakes definitely remind me that some fun pops of color just might be the perfect thing sometimes!

I have to thank my amazingly talented friend Michelle, from Mibelle Photography, for the stunning photos.  She is always so sweet and orders so many cakes from me and I am even more lucky when I get the photos back from the events!  This yellow floral cake was one she ordered for her best friend’s bridal shower.  I loved the room decorations they put up and they even rented the clear stand from my friend Carissa and filled it with lemons and more florals…love it!

I had a blast making this cake and seeing it come to life…love the all white funky flowers.

Some of you might recognize this cake design since it was one I came up with based off a painting and Sydney loved the original so much she wanted to do it for her wedding cake as well, but this time we did it in a fun purple color.  Kyong did this cake and I think it turned out perfectly!

Strawberry cupcakes…yummy!

For the set up instead of using cake stands Sydney wanted to use old cigar boxes…I think it turned out great!

Lots of fun photo shoots!

Monday, May 16th, 2011

Most of the wedding industry knows that I am pretty addicted to doing photos shoot!  I just love being able to have full control of coming up with a new cake or dessert design and the whole process is really a lot of fun for me since I get to try out new techniques and push the design boundaries :)

This first shoot was such a fun one we did for Styled Magazine, which is a new online magazine that my talented friend Vicky started.  She had a great idea of having one inspirational image and sending it to a bunch of different wedding vendors and seeing what they’d come up with.

Screen shot 2011-03-29 at 1.10.41 PM

I loved this inspiration photo below and immediately wanted to do an out-of-the-box design for this mini cake.

Screen shot 2011-03-29 at 1.01.50 PM

We made white pom pom sugar flowers and then for the cake I thought it would be fun to do the top half of the cake black and the bottom white…I love the bold contrast and once we threw the sprinkles on the cake it just completed it perfectly!

Of course we have to add some cute french macarons to the shoot and we even sprinkled them with the colorful sprinkles too…

This next shoot was for another online wedding magazine called NonPareil.  I was so excited to be featured in it as well and for this shoot we took a more modern, clean, preppy approach to the design.  I got to work with Vicky, from City Cradle Design, again, The Floral Lab, who did the beautiful flowers, and the talented Jackie Wonders snapped the gorgeous photos!

We created two flavors of french macarons for the shoot, a large cake, and accented the table with some fun bright candy!

I love the look of grey, yellow and white together and I thought the bold pops of color and pattern on the cake turned out nicely.

Lastly I had the pleasure of working with a fabulous team on this next shoot.  I love the combo of green and white together and this shoot shows why! Kathy & Susan from Bella Weddings & Events did the planning & design, Carissa, from JL Designs, did the stunning florals, and Leila, from Be Inspired PR, produced the whole shoot!  You can check out the rest of the amazing team down below! Also big thanks to Barnaby Draper Studios for the great photos!

The whole shoot was at the Vibiana in LA ad I have to say it is one of the most breathtaking venues in California!

For the wedding cake we wanted to keep it all white on white, but add plenty of gorgeous texture to it, so we made sugar patterns and lace to accent the tiers and piped on small white dots to accent it.

We also did some bright green apples dipped in white chocolate…love the color contrast!

Tori & Dean: sTORIbook Wedding

Thursday, April 21st, 2011

I am so excited to share this post with you!!!  We have loved working with Tori & Dean on their new show “sTORIbook Weddings“!  We taped three weddings with them and our first wedding they are airing is the Shabby Chic themed wedding we got to work on with Jeni & Alyson from, Found Vintage Rentals, who provided all the fabulous vintage rentals and Jaclyne of Heavenly Blooms did the gorgeous florals!

I had a crazy idea of hanging small cakes inside wire birdcages and then having Jaclyne hang florals in jars as well and I have to say my vision came to life pretty well!

We accented the mini cupcakes we vintage fondant flowers.

For the wedding cake the bride loved the idea of having her wedding cake in teal and then we accented it with sugar lace doilies.
