Summer Wedding Cakes Part II

Wednesday, January 23rd, 2013

Well I am COMPLETELY behind on blogging cakes from last year, so here are some from last summer!  Time sure does fly when you have a 10 month old and two bakeries!  Shout out to my team of cake girls who consistently make gorgeous cakes all year round: Kyong, Irene, Kasey, & Frances, plus Jenna who isn’t with us anymore, but worked on a lot of these lovely cakes!! First up sugar flowers and dot lace…

Style Me Pretty Book

Saturday, December 22nd, 2012

Well I have been waiting for this day for a while…Style Me Pretty’s new book just came out on Decemeber 18th and I couldn’t be more overjoyed!  Last year Abby asked if I could be the contributing cake designer for the whole book and of course I said yes after pinching myself a million times!  I had the privilege and pleasure of working with Jose Villa, Lisa Vorce, Kate Holdt, and Rebecca Schmidt Ruebensaal on the books six styled photo shoots and I have to say they turned out pretty amazing!  Below is one peek from a shoot we did with them that was a bonus chapter that Abby recently featured on her blog!  You can buy the book at any major bookstore or online through Amazon.

I have to say this might be one of my favorite cakes!  I have fallen in love with gold this past year and I love to add it to anything and everything when it comes to cake and desserts!  I love simplicity as well and I think that is cake is very simple, yet just my style!

From the paintings to the gold encrusted silverware…I am in love with everything!

Thanks so much for stopping by and I will definitely be posting more about the features we have in the book coming up soon!

 

 

South Western Meets Art Deco Americana Photo Shoot

Wednesday, October 17th, 2012

I am so lucky to get to work with some amazingly talented people in the wedding industry and this next photo shoot really shows off their talent! The shoot was inspired by Cassa de Perrin’s new Navajo dinnerware and then Jesi Haack came along and added her usual brilliant design spin to everything!  The photographer who always captures everything perfectly…Jose Villa, shot this for us as well!  This fab photo shoot is featured on 100 Layer Cake today so you can check out even more details over there!

Pitbulls and Posies seriously keeps knocking it out of the park with her designs…I absolutely love everything she makes!

Honey and Poppies created such amazing florals for this shoot and the bouquet is to die for!

For the cake I wanted to add a little glam to the Navajo design so we painted the whole cake gold and then Kyong added in some painted patterns at the base of the cake to bring some pops of color to the cake.  Then I accented the top of the cake with large succulents…loved how it turned out!

1011 Make up did such dreamy hair and make up for the shoot…this model is stunning!

Thanks so much for stopping by the blog and I hope you enjoyed the shoot!

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!

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.

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!

A Watercolor Wedding Shoot

Monday, August 6th, 2012

Get ready for a eye popping gorgeous explosion of colors!  This fun wedding shoot I got to be a part of is full of bright pops of color and inspired by watercolor paintings & pop art.  Katie from, Bella Destinee,  put together the whole shoot and did such a great job!  Scott Clark Photography took the beautiful photos for the shoot and I have to thank Leila from, Wedding Pr, for bringing me on the team for this shoot!

You can take a look at all the wonderful vendors I got to work with at the end of the post!

This might be one of my favorite cakes we have ever made a Sweet & Saucy Shop.  I got inspired by the beautiful watercolor I saw on a wedding dress via pinterest and knew we could make a gorgeous cake from that. I love how the burst of color is at the bottom of the cake and then it goes up to all white at the top.  I decided to do an all white magnolia sugar flower so that it blended in to the top of the cake and kept it modern and clean looking.  Kyong did the lovely watercolor hand painting and I just love how it turned out!

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!
