We create desserts as unique and special as you and your event. We believe you CAN have you cake and eat it too, but you can also have mousse, pies and tarts, crème brûlée, or éclairs! Special events are just that, SPECIAL and nothing says PARTY like those sweet little bites at the end of the party.

Artistic License - Take 3

This is a continuation of the free wedding cake series... three of four.

The bride's colors were chocolate brown, pink and gold. She asked for something "princess-y" and all I can say is that my husband said she'd better have been happy with this cake! That being said this cake was a real phoenix from the ashes experiment. My original intention was for the stenciling to be done in pink... let just say that it didn't work like I had wanted and I had to break out a little pastry magic to get back to a clean, blank slate and try again for take two.
I was very happy with how this cake turned out. Nice detail. Nice composition and I think it fits the request for "princess-y" without being overly girly (I'm there for my grooms too!)
Enjoy the pictures... Brandy Sommer Photography (Brandy is working on building her website, so you'll have to wait to see more of her work until it's done.) did a great job, my favorite is the one with all the blue sky... and yes, we very much did a Where's Waldo with this cake and Sequoia... whenever I have a super stable cake and a beautiful venue I'm going to work it as much as possible to get the best possible pictures!


  1. Was this the cake using airbrush?! YOu are an innovator. I can't wait for my own big day to see what amazing creations you come up with. :) Wink, wink.

  2. No it was actually a Carissa technique... I held the stencil up and then "pounced" a dry brush that had gold luster dust on it onto the surface... removed the stencit, voila!
