Style Me Pretty Valentine’s Day Shoot

Tuesday, February 14th, 2012

I got sweet surprise last week when I received an email from Abby who runs the fabulous wedding blog, Style Me Pretty…guessing most of your have heard about it :)

Abby asked if I could create a Valentine’s Day cake just for SMP and of course I jumped at the chance!  I knew I had to ask Carlie, from Gabriel Ryan Photography, to shoot it for me since I am basically in love with everything she photographs!  I also knew I had to have an amazing piece of furniture to display my cakes on so of course I called Jeni, from Found Vintage Rentals,…the best rental company around for those showstopping pieces you have to have!   We ladies had a great time putting the shoot together and I loved the outcome!

I absolutely adored Jeni’s furniture piece she brought and the paper flowers she accented it with were fabulous!

For the cakes I thought we would do one of the new techniques we have been trying out at the bakery, which I am in love with…smooth ombre buttercream!  I liked combining all the shades of pink and red together and of course we had to throw a golden heart on top!

Then for two of the side cakes we tried a new piping technique and incorporated the ombre shades as well…we added a golden XO and we were all set!

We also made some mini sweet treats for the shoot as well…yummy salted caramel french macarons, heart shaped rice krispy treats, and of course a mini mason jar dessert!

A Gorgeous Rustic, Elegant Wedding at The Villa!

Thursday, December 22nd, 2011

I am just in love with this next wedding that I got to be a part of!  The couple are good friends of Carissa, from JL Designs, who did all the floral design and clearly you can tell that they are have fabulous taste!  They wanted their wedding design to be early southern california history mixed with some masculine texan details.  I love the rich color scheme and the rustic touches here and there.  The talented Ashley Rose photographed the whole wedding and I love think the photos are dreamy!  The Villa at San Juan Capistrano was the fantastic venue it was held at.

For the mini dessert bar we used lots of cut glass and amber cake stands and I loved the look of it.

Some of gorgeous rentals, like this table for the dessert bar, were from Found Vintage Rentals…they are the best!

They had a special family recipe they wanted us to recreate which was a fun addition to the mini dessert bar.

For the cake we wanted to do something clean and modern, but also look rich and elegant.  We stuck with the white and gold color scheme and I decided to paint fondant braids gold and use them to wrap around the cake tiers.  Then we did a white ruffle sugar flower with a large gold center.

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.

IMG_2429

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!

I think I might have posted this Girl Scout Cookie Cake I did a while back, but here is the whole set up which I just had to show! Since the bride works for Girl Scouts she wanted to incorporate the cookies into her cake, but in a elegant way.  I painted them with edible gold and then had them cascading down the cake.

Then we created four side cakes with our rustic cream cheese frosting and accented them with four more cookie types!

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!

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!

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.
