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.

Christina and Mickey - River Highlands Ranch

I met Christina and Mickey through Kendra Pfeiffer of Pfeiffer Event Planning. What a darling, sweet couple. They were married last month at River Highlands Ranch near Grass Valley. What an amazing venue! Yes, it was country, no, it was not rustic. It was just beautiful.

Special thanks to Bruce Robinson for these pictures.

The Bride was recently diagnosed with Celiac (gluten intolerant), so we made smaller versions of the large chocolate mousse cups for the guests for her darling Groom to feed her.Don't you just adore the wheat grass base for the cake?
Lastly, a brief note on the cake, the Bride and Groom described the buttercream technique as "ceiling spackle", I call it "homestyle", but either way, it is a soft, relaxed, romantic look and when paired with the flowers and the wheat grass base it was perfect for their reception. Special note, if you have a smaller cake, place the cake on a bar height cocktail table, it'll give you additional height and the smaller surface area will make the diminutive size of the cake feel a little more in proportion!
