More mini wedding cakes

For a beautiful wedding coming in our pipeline, we designed these beautiful wedding cakes for the bride and groom to be. We made these beautifully delectable cakes out of our famous red velvet cake and cream cheese frosting. To coordinate with the wedding bouquet colors of ivory, cream and green we first dyed the fondant into a pale ivory color, decorated the cakes with green ribbon and topped the cake with hand piped cream roses and green leaves. We also made a small plaque with the couple's initials piped on top. These cakes will be individually packaged and given to each and every guest as a perfectly sweet gift to take home with them !

New dessert plates at Sift graham street!

There are two new dessert plates at our graham street dessert bar location that we've recently added to welcome September! One if a variation of strawberries which includes a classic British favorite: Eton Mess. We bake mini meringues then crush it up with strawberries, strawberry puree and fresh whipped cream. We pair the Eton Mess with a crumbly buttermilk shortcake with again fresh strawberries, whipped cream and a homemade strawberry sorbet. Our second dessert is a banana nutella crepe reinvented. We make buttery homemade crepes and layer it with bananas and chocolate sauce. The crepe is also paired with homemade banana ice cream, a praline pastry cream (we even make the praline paste in house) cigarette tuille cookie and a chocolate hazelnut decor. It's a great pairing of contrasting flavors and textures!
