Mattel Toy Cake

Now this was an exciting and fun cake to create! We were contacted by Sophia Cesaro of the Galleria in Culver City, to create a Toy-themed cake for their event that was to honor toy Designers from around the World! .... what an honor!!
Being the party was for the Mattel Toy Company, The cake design refelected the different themes that toys are played with. We had barbie and Barbie's house, Polly Pocket, and the racetrack and cars from "hot wheels".
The Top tier was a vanilla sponge cake with a lemon curd with a french vanilla bean pastry cream. The bottom tier contained alternating vanilla sponge and chocolate cake with a Raspberry and french vanilla bean pastry cream with a dark chocolate truffle drizzle..... Yum!
Decadent and delicious!!

Have a Valentine in Mind?

We just made these cupcakes. They were inspired to follow the look of the classic "sweet-heart" candies. It was so fun making these treats and deciding what to write on each of the hearts. The sugar hearts had cute little sayings such as "Hot Stuff", "Kiss Me", "I Luv U" and "Be Mine". What a nice way to show your loved one how special they are!  Perfect for any Valentine. XOXO

The Shire meets Humpty Dumpty

Can we just say that this cake is awesome, because it is.  It is such a creative idea. What is better than an edible combination of all our favorite nursery rhymes?  Nothing I tell you, nothing.  It was such a blast to do, making this beautiful imagery come to life.  From the detailed cobble stone to the flowers you can almost smell; it makes you feel like you are there begging Humpty to be careful not to fall while a cow jumps over the moon. Awesome!

Love is in the air!

This week we had the pleasure to create an amazing engagement cake for a lovely couple! The theme for the party was "Sex in the City", which got us cake designers inspired!

We had a blast creating another edible work of art!
 Each item was a different kind of cake and filling.
The zebra package was a Vanilla Sponge Cake with lemon mousse and fresh raspberries with a white chocolate truffle drizzle.
The Tiffany box was a Chocolate Cake with hazelnut cream and ganache.
The Black Chanel purse was a Red Velvet cake with a delicious cream cheese filling, finished with a stylish heel created from gumpaste.

A truly dynamic cake! Congratulations Desiree and Adam!
