Cupcake towers

Here are two examples of our cupcake towers. For an intimate wedding at Repulse Bay, we delivered 60 cupcakes (red velvet and lemon flavored ones) and decorated two of our cupcake towers with them. Our cupcake towers are the perfect way to present our cupcakes for an intimate party. For another special 60th birthday, we made 120 customized birthday plaques and decorated each and every cupcake with them. We then finally placed all of them on our red ribbon lined cupcake tower for a stunning presentation!

Anna's wedding!

For a beautiful and intimate wedding at the Hong Kong Yacht Club, we made a beautiful cupcake tower filled with our chocolate and red velvet cupcakes. We also made a cake topper made with our dark chocolate cake and buttercream and covered it with white fondant and orange and pink gerberas to match the table setting! We also sent over a hundred chocolate and vanilla macarons for the guests to take away as party favors!

Duncan and Stephanie's wedding party favors!

For Duncan and Stephanie's beautiful wedding at the Country Club, we created 280 of these beautiful mini wedding cakes. Here, each wedding cake is made of tangy fresh lemon zest cake, filled with classic French lemon buttercream and covered with fondant. We dyed the fondant in shades of cream, lemony yellow and pink. The cakes were then decorated with green, cream and pink ribbons. All of the color scheme we matched to the flower arrangements of their wedding day! We also piped mini buttercream roses and leaves onto each and every miniature wedding cake. These cakes took a team of three chefs and I working around the clock for one week straight to finish! They're delicious and stunningly beautiful!


Since our tray of macaroons looked so beautifully scrumptious, I knew I had to blog it immediately. Our macaroons currently come in 9 flavors: Caramel, Lemon, Coffee, Chocolate, Rose, Raspberry, Strawberry, Pistachio and Vanilla. I'm slowly working on adding to our repertoire so stayed tuned. We strive to make our macaroons crispy on the outer layer and soft and chewy on the inside. Perfect as a light little snack or as a party favor giveaway, they've been hugely popular at our new Queen's Road East location! For a plated delight, check out our Ispahan ice cream coupe at our Graham street shop! It's beautifully plated with lychee ice cream, mini raspberry filled ispahans and raspberry foam!

Now that it's really hot out, you're probably thinking of that perfectly light pastry. Nothing too rich, every bit just right. Well lately our Ispahans have been selling like hot cakes, here are a few larger sized ones that we did recently for a big birthday party. This beautiful creation was created by Pierre Herme and we do it here at Sift as a tribute to him. They're light pink macaroons, filled with fresh rose buttercream, lychees, raspberries and topped off with fresh rose petals. They're perfect for a hot summer's day!
