A New Take on a Marie Antoinette Wedding Cake

This was one of my favorite cakes of last year. Thanks to Apollo Fotografie for these beautiful images. This Marie Antoinette inspired cake had a hand made sugar shoe to decorate the top with hand painted scenes of the bride and groom's favorite artists.  All the gold and blue decor was hand piped and painted. I love the color scheme and originality of this glamorous cake.

Cake Coquette in The Knot Northern California Spring/Summer 2015 Issue

It is so exciting to have two cakes featured in the new issue of The Knot Northern California. I had the pleasure to work with one of my favorite photographers Janae Shields (janaeshields.com) on Jennifer and Eric's wedding and Michelle Barrionuevo-Mazinni, event designer (mbweddingdesigns.com)for Niki and Alan's wedding.

Firefox 40th Anniversary 3-D Globe Cake

This globe, which was a small feat of engineering, was 26" in diameter. It was huge, and even though only the top quarter was edible (which was easily over 100 servings) it still weighed a ton. The globe was for Firefox's 40th anniversary at thier headquarters in Mountain View. I heard there was a ceremonial cake cutting by the Firefox mascot, but that no one wanted to cut into the cake..until the next day!

Ghirardelli Chocolate Miniature San Francisco Skyline Display

Ghirardelli Chocolate delivered over a hundred pounds of chocolate to me this week to create this chocolate display for their Fancy Food Show after-party. I had to unwrap A LOT all of their iconic mini chocolate squares to create this San Francisco skyline. But it was worth it and so much fun. It should be on display for a while at the Market Place in Ghirardelli Square.

A Summer of Elegant Wedding Cakes in the Bay Area

These are just a few of my recent favorites. My clients this summer have been so inspiring. Shades of teals and oranges have been a recurring theme but we always have some wild cards with all black or gold. Enjoy!
