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 - Texture, Texture, Texture

I have four weddings this year where, in exchange for full artistic license, the couple is receiving a free wedding cake. This was a great opportunity for all concerned to get something wonderful.
This cake allowed me to try out a new "basket weave" texture tool and a "pleated" fondant technique. It's difficult to see, but there is also a small black boarder around each cake that was actually used to hide the support plates... kind of ingenious and really added to the design!
I can't wait to see more pictures, possibly more angles, of this cake, but I really was thrilled with how this cake turned out. Big, dramatic, and a surprisingly fun cake. I have to say that delivering to Social Night Club was, well, A BEAR... there are stairs... lots and lots of stairs, but the bride and the staff did such an amazing job pulling all the details together that this really was a BEAUTIFUL reception venue.
Thanks to Amber with Artistic Imagery for the beautiful pictures. I'm waiting with baited breath for more (and more, and more, and more!!!).
