some fun ones

Hello all!

Not too long back we mentioned that we'd soon have a pic or two of some cake toppers we can make for your cake if you don't want to go with a traditional monogram or bride and groom (although we have made them before and would again!). Here is a bird hand-formed from a thick gage wire that would adorn the top of your cake; two would be awesome on top! We've done some trees before too (think "fall theme"). Many colors are available, but I love the color of a metallic to stand out and bring attention to your cake.

We worked hard on this cake, specifically the car... which if I remember correctly is a '42 Chevy. Who knew it would be so difficult to get the exact angles of a car correct?! A client stopped in and wanted a replica of a car they've had in the family for a long time which was originally his dads. This cake was in celebration of the father's birthday and included signs where he went to school, grew up, grandkids that were born along the way, and some of his favorite relaxation spots.

A loving husband ordered this cake for his wife's 30th birthday! From what we hear she enjoyed a relaxing day at the spa, followed by some delicious cake and a great birthday party. We incorporated some of her favorite colors and flowers on here, and did her favorite style of cake - topsy turvy!

What a cool cake for your first birthday! I think I had Rainbow Brite on mine... anyway, this must be one cool little girl! We kept the colors in different shades of pinks, and through a request from the mother, added 3D skulls and crossbones to the bottom tier of the cake. Also, as a side note, the bottom tier of this cake would have been delicious to enjoy and is one of my new favorites - Pastacio cake with French vanilla buttercream. Although my favorite filling with this would have to have been orange curd buttercream. YUM.

Everyone enjoy their weeks (or I guess now, weekends!) and we'll have some more fun stuff soon! - Sara :)

Happy 2009!

We just wanted to say a GIGANTIC thank you to all of our wonderful brides and clients over this past year. It was a huge transition for us early last year - moving into a retail space, expanding our business, bringing on new staff employees - you were all there with us, and it was fantastic to have you around.

Thank you TRIFOLD to all of our great vendors who are always recommending us to their clients. Honestly, without all of you, we don't know where we would be today. All of our photographer, florists, videographers, event planners, venues, and our neighbors! - we love you all. So stop in a grab a cookie and chat with us while we have time to talk! Because, you know, come April, we won't have time for words until December :)

As for this year, we are so excited for everything upcoming. We have booked just about the ENTIRE month of June, May is out of control, and August through November are looking to be just as busy as the rest... which we love. Keep coming to us with new ideas, colors, designs, and inspirations. We want to create the best cake for you! Also, we are really beginning to design cake toppers to go right along with the design of the wedding cake. So if you are a bride that doesn't want the usual monogram, or bride and groom figurine, let us run with it! We should have a picture up in a few days of one we've been working on... I know it will be pleasing.

Ok, so now, on with the cakes!

I love the bronzey metallic color to this cake. Beautiful for a winter wedding.

Isn't the stucco look of this cake awesome? You definitely do not have to have a smooth iced cake! You could accent something like this with fresh flowers, fruits, or crystals and flowers on wires like this one.
SO CUTE for a baby shower. So. Cute.

I loved this cake topper for this wedding! We hand made the branches from chocolate fondant to accent the the owls (!!) that were made by a close friend. This owls were supposed to be incorporated throughout the entire wedding. I love 'em.
Everyone have a great week! - Sara :)
