Square Lavender Wedding Cake

Here’s a beautiful wedding cake we had the honor of creating a few weeks ago.  We sat down with the bride and groom months ago to design the cake, and Vanessa, the bride, had great vision!

Brush Embroidery Lace Wedding Cake

Many brides ask us to replicate the lace pattern on their gown. Of course, there are many ways in which you can do this on a cake, but one way is brush embroidery. We used it on this Rustic Elegant wedding cake back in October 2010. It gives a very elegant, almost-sewn look to the pattern. Want to try it?

-Here’s a tutorial by Wilton.
-And here’s another video tutorial on YouTube.

This time, however, the cake was covered in white fondant and the brush embroidery was also done with white buttercream. White on white is pretty, but you lose some of the details so I went back and outlined the pattern again with white buttercream to add some definition.

The wedding reception was held outdoors at Haile Plantation Golf & Country Club. *Notice the golfer in the background. I’m sure he was gone before the wedding started.*

Seven-Tier Wedding Cake in St. Augustine, FL!

This wedding cake is from back in October…why haven’t I posted it before now? Your guess is as good as mine! But I think you’ll all really like it.

It was a seven tier wedding cake – all decorated with white and ivory fondant.

The cake topper was a dome of white and ivory gum paste flowers, and the top two tiers were decorated with fondant swags, lace, and quilting.

Then we had some ivory fondant stripes, more lace, more quilting, and a lot of fondant pleats around the base!

While I was in the middle of setting up the cake, the bridesmaids announced that Caroline was dying to see her cake! So, I moved all my stuff aside and…here comes the bride!

I think she liked it.

And I think she was even more excited to cut into it!

After tasting the cake, Caroline gave the camera a thumbs-up…yummy! But, wait a minute, Rob has icing on his finger…and a rather sinister look on his face. Don’t do it, Rob! Do NOT rub that icing on Caroline’s gorgeous nose!

*Thank you to Dana Goodson Photography for providing such amazing photos of the cake and cake cutting! See more of her shots of the wedding here.

Pillow Cake for a First Birthday Party!

Maybe you should sit down before I show you this cake. The order was placed only TWO weeks ago by a woman for her granddaughter’s first birthday party. Big deal, right?

Well, the party was for 120 people! And she wanted a 3-tier pillow cake. Actually, she specifically wanted this cake from Elegant Cheesecakes, but we changed it a little to incorporate her colors and “feel” for the party. The party colors were dusty rose, ivory, and pink! And the party had sort of a girly vintage feel to it.


The cakes were carved, covered in fondant, and decorated with fondant accents.


The pillows were topped with a gum paste princess crown, which was wrapped around the smash cake! See it peeping from behind the crown in the picture below? At the party, they were able to lift the crown and smash cake and set it in front of the birthday girl.


I knew this would be a fun delivery. I love it when the rooms are at least partially set up so I can see how the cake fits into the rest of the party.


I’m proud to say we perfectly matched the party colors! Yay!


Just look at this room!


Again, there’s the girly vintage feel…an elegant, mature centerpiece with a pink & silver crown sticking out of it!


And how many 1st birthday parties have you been to where there is a favor bar. What’s the favor? GOLDFISH! Yup, each party attendee took home a new pet!

Light Pink Christening Cake

This cake is all about the subtlety. It was made for a baby’s Christening and was iced in very light pink buttercream.


I decorated it using white fondant pressed into a lace mold, some buttercream dots & crosses, a hand-made name plaque, and a hand-made gum paste bow topper.


It’s subtly feminine and baby-ish while still giving impressions of maturity, elegance, and the importance of the event it celebrates.
