We had the honor of making this 26" tall cake for the 20th anniversary of the Republic of Tea. We recreated the tin of their anniversary blend which should be in stores now. We got to sample it...so delicious!
This lovely white cake full of ruffles is definitely what is hot right now. I can't take credit away from Maggie Austin Cake (http://maggieaustincake.com/) in Washington DC who is the incredible talent behind this cake design.
This week we also had a colorful first birthday cake.....
I love these photos taken by Chocostudio Photography. This cake was one of those grand cakes perfect for the Frairmont Hotel. Here are more photos of this beautiful wedding on the Chocostudio blog: http://www.chocostudio.com/blog/san-francisco-fairmont-hotel-wedding/
This tall cake (with one faux tier for extra height) had ruffles, quilted textures and a lace pattern that matched the brides dress. Here is a close up of the lace pattern that I loved.
Sorry for the unattractive background, but I love this cake. I made if for my close friend who wanted to showcase Mexican embroidery for her fiesta wedding (Left).
So simple, but so popular. And the top tier was gluten free! (Center)
Here is a newest addition to the many San Francisco skyline cakes I have done. This one is the biggest yet on a 4ft base board with 3ft tall sugar painted sunset backdrop. Although not all the standing details are cake, the Ferry Building was made entirely of cake as was the entire city ground. The coolest feature were the little LED lights spread out across the cake to give the effect of a night time city glow.
This is most definitely my most popular cake design but there is always a new variation with every client. I especially love the boy and girl silhouette that came off the couple's invitation and the flowers and leaves given to me by one of my favorite florists in town Nicole Ha. The flowers make this cake so dreamy and romantic. Thank you to Meghan Caudill for taking this lovely photo for me.
If you look closely you will find all kinds of little insects hidden in the vines and flowers. There was a little sugar squirrel, mouse, lizard, frog, turtle, hummingbird, bees, ants, ladybugs, butterflies, snails and more crawling all about the bright sugar foliage.
