“What a pleasure it was designing this wedding cake/sweet table for a wonderful editorial styled shoot with some exceptional vendors, top in our industry. When I received the notice that we were channeling the Great Gatsby theme, I was thrilled. We decided to soften up the colours, and make it more romantic. What a marvelous experience it was designing this cake!”

“I loved the intricate details of the cake and the two hand painted peony features that were based off Palettera Custom Correspondences‘ invitations. The carved out middle with floating sugar chains adds a touch of whimsy. This cake has an elegant Royal feel.”

“Reminiscent of the art deco, glamorous train travel days, this three tiered cake is styled after hat boxes that were used to carry gorgeous millinery along the Orient Express’ route. The cake is made with a luxurious chocolate and mocha cake base with a salted caramel buttercream filling. It’s crafted by hand with each fine navy blue line hand rolled by our artisan cake makers. The cake really is a showpiece for any wedding!”

“This majestic beauty was inspired by the gorgeous, intricate detailing on the bride’s regal Indian outfit. Featuring embroidery work mimicked in sugar, custom patterns, handcrafted sugar flowers, and a bold color palette; each design element was carefully curated to create the perfect cake, bringing the bride’s vision to life! The bold black colour, paired with gold and ruby red,  truly makes an impressive statement. It was the perfect cake design for the couple’s grandeur royal wedding & will remain a favourite of mine always!”

“Custom lace, sequins and floral was created for this stunning five tier wedding cake. It was the highlight of Nicole and Frank’s wedding. With silver edible details, this cake sparkled with brilliance. Our team pulled off a show piece that we are so very proud of. We loved the height and subtle (but extravagant) details of this wedding cake. Placed on a beautiful head table this wedding cake was a beauty.”

“Chinoiserie is a subject matter I fail to become tired of. The exuberant decoration and asymmetry we see in porcelain pieces from as early as the 17th century, always seems to inspire. This design was hand painted and the sculpted finial was designed to mimic the lids of porcelain pieces.”

“We loved creating this bohemian cake for a true free spirited bride! Creative freedom played a big part in making this piece super special and one of a kind. Handmade sugar flowers and a fondant macrame pattern gives it a true boho vibe. I love making unique designs for my couples and this was by far my favourite of the 2017 season!”

“A three tier semi-naked cake with vintage cupped sugar roses and fresh foliage. This cake is so deceptively simple but has so much class and elegance. The very popular naked cake is a trend that looks like it’s here to stay for at least another few seasons! I like to call it semi naked, since I cover it up a little more to create crisp edges. And just because you can see the cake doesn’t mean you have to stay with boring (yet delicious) vanilla! Many brides are layering the flavours together to create a lovely palette of tastes for their guests all on one plate! Cake with coffee after a wedding feast – I’m not sure there’s anything better!”
