Wedding bells

For a very special wedding at the Grand Hyatt, we made a beautiful wedding cake and party favors all with our best seller red velvet! We made 60 delicious red velvet cupcakes and decorated it with a customized cream and red polka dot (embossed with the bride and groom's initials) and placed it in a beautiful individual cupcake party favor boxes. Each box was then tied with a beautiful red ribbon (we matched the color of the red velvet cakes, to the red polka dots to the red ribbon :) ) Everything made for a beautiful table setting that matched the table floral pieces!For the wedding cake we made a delicious three tier wedding cake covered in cream fondant and fresh calla lilies and roses.

Ready for the ball!

For a very special 4th birthday we made this stunning 6lb Barbie cake. The cake was made of alternating layers of our delicious peanut butter and chocolate chip and dark valrhona chocolate cake. We shaped the cake into a beautiful ball gown, covered it with layers of pink and purple fondant "fabric", and attached beautiful edible sugar flowers and sugar butterflies. We even made a little purple pillow for barbie's stillettos.

Angelina's very special christening

For Angelina's christening party we made an absolutely beautiful and elegant three tier cake. The cake was made of our best seller red velvet and covered with baby pink fondant. We then wrapped each tier with a matching silver ribbon and decorated the entire cake with edible sugar butterflies all in pastel color.
