When one of our favorite customers, Bridget approached me to do her birthday cake, I knew we couldn't do just any simple birthday cake! Bridget designs the most beautiful pieces of jewelry and we asked her to send us an image of her favorite item. Turns out, Bridget's favorite is a golden pair of loop earrings! We then translated the design to a delicious two tiered red velvet cake. We decorated the cake with the earring motif all around and painted over with gold luster dust to give it that extra extravagant look!

On the same night at Country Club we catered to another amazing birthday party for Martin's 60th birthday! We created an extravagant 5 tier cake made out of our popular dark chocolate with 70% chocolate buttercream and red velvet and madgascar bourbon vanilla cream cheese frosting cakes! WE decorated each tier according to a different broadway show. The bottom tier is good man charlie brown and we decorated the cake with the silhouettes according to the show's playbill. The second tier was inspired by Elisa's dress she wore to the Ascot race. We decorated the tier with a bow inspired by the dress she wore and also decorated it with sugar flowers. The third tier is King and I and we hand drew some Thai elephants along with a thai themed decoration. We then painted the decorations over with gold luster dust to give it that extra extravagant look. The fourth tier is Camelot in which we decorated the cake with the inscription of the famous round table. We also hand drew all sorts of Camelot related decorations, the famous sword, King Arthur's castle, figures dressed in medieval attire. Finally the top layer is South Pacific and we hand drew some tropical island designs. We then finished off the cake with a big red 60 and hand made fondant Playbills. The cake in total weighed 25lbs!!

We love collaborating with the Wedding Company cause they always give us super fun projects and this was one of them. For a wedding this past Sunday at the Grand Hyatt for Winnie and Marcus we made 860 cookies each with either a W or and M inscribed on top. To guarantee that each and every W and M were exactly the same font we first traced it out with parchment and chocolate royal icing and then carefully placed each and every one on a pink background shortbread cookie. We then dotted little white polka dots around the side. We wrapped one of the W and one of the Ms into 430 cookie bags and ribboned tied them with a beautiful red ribbon and a Winnie and Marcus "Recipe for Love" tag. These cookies looked beautiful against the backdrop of the Grand Hyatt ballroom!
For a special 38th Birthday held at Cipriani, we delivered dozens of cupcakes each individually packaged and ribbon tied in our beautiful party favor boxes. On every other cupcake we wrote either a number 38 or an "S" for birthday boy Stanford. We delivered these to Cipriani and placed each and every cupcake on their signature plates. What better to go with a bellini and a delicious Sift cupcake ?
