Pearl Wedding Cake

I’d like to share a few photo’s of a pearl wedding cake I made last August. The bride also ordered a couple hundred pink ribbon cookie favours for her guests.Let me tell you, when I delivered the cake, I was in awe. The venue chosen, the attention to detail, and the whole decor in general was so beautiful and elegant. I’m thankful that I was chosen to make a cake for such a beautiful event. I’ve borrowed a few photo’s from this event with the bride’s permission and would like to note the fabulous photographer, Pink Plum Photography. Here’s a link to her facebook page.

Persimmon Wedding Cake

According to wikipedia, Persimmon can be described as a medium orange-red, but according to bridal store dresses, ribbons, and silk flowers, that colour ranges greatly. I was excited when this bride told me her colours were persimmon and brown because I love the `Fall feel`of those colour tones together, they`re so warm and inviting. Since it`s still August and quite warm, we opted for silk florals this time because the reception is non-air conditioned and that could be a huge disaster for real flowers if they`re not properly taken care of.  If she had opted for real flowers, we could have used these flower spikes, where you fill them with water, insert them into the cake and then add your flowers. But I wanted to create a full look with the flowers, and we would have needed a lot of spikes, therefore making a mess on the top of the cake.

My fav part of course, was the orange crystal jewels, they look so pretty when the light hits them.

August Weddings

The past couple weeks have been so warm…in fact too warm to bake goodies! Our little old air conditioner near the kitchen/living room is on strike.  So this week I just wanted to share a photo of a recent wedding cake. I’ll post a new blog with yummy treats next week. Any ideas or inspiration would be great!

I heart this simple cake.  With a quilting/diamond pattern on the top and a plain-jane layer on the bottom, the bold coloured ribbon and single white flower speak for themselves. This ribbon that the bride and groom provided was wider than the average ribbon, so I stacked the cake layers a little higher than usual. The top 8″ has 3 layers and the bottom cake (14″) has 2 thick layers of both chocolate and vanilla cake.  Cute topper hey?

Aimee Makris, a VERY talented frotographer from Moi Photography took these photo’s below and I was super excited to share them!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this photo!

Going Tropical

One of my girlfriends recently became married in Mexico and her wedding colours included the most gorgeous tones of fuchsia pink and neon orange. Let me tell you, I was drooling over how great her wedding photo’s turned out. Sadly I wasn’t able to make it out to attend this special wedding because I had visited a few months prior, but I was inspired to make a cake using their wedding colour scheme.

Here’s a mini collage of her tropical wedding, and the tasty looking cupcakes that inspired me to bake with pink & orange.

And this little darling is their daughter, wearing the cutest pink dress I’ve ever seen. How cute or those cheeks!

And this is the cake made this past week…

One more pic of the gorgeous couple having a stroll on the beach…so lucky that they get to live in paradise! 

Congratulations Kaila & Sergio on your beautiful wedding! Love you tons!

p.s. if you’re wondering who the talented photographer was…here’s his website. Don Young Photography.com and here’s the wedding slideshow he prepared for the happy couple.

Fun with Black and White

I wanted to share this photo of a recent wedding cake I made. Black and White is so timeless and classy. I wanted to practice my piping skills and draw either a crown/tiara or a chandelier for the middle tier. You need to understand though, practicing piping on a surface and piping it on a cake are SO different and it’s nerve-wracking using black icing because if I mess up, it can be difficult to fix.

I’m surprised how many people are opting for black and white cakes, black bridesmaid dresses, and black and white decor right now. You would think that with Spring here, we would be seeing more pastel colours… Oh but wait, it’s still randomly snowing in my town, so maybe we have a few more weeks until Spring fever hits!  

My favourite part, the faux diamond buttons. 🙂   It’s a simple cake, but I smile when I see it!

Oh by the way, Happy Easter!
