I love this color combination! Yellow and brown look amazing together.. especially when you add huge sunflowers! This wedding cake was for an awesome couple who wanted a small wedding for mostly family. The only request......CHOCOLATE, CHOCOLATE, CHOCOLATE, CHOCOLATE!!!! I was honored to find out that they sampled about 4 different companies chocolate cakes, and chose me and my popular Chocolate Truffle Cake. For those who haven't tried the Chocolate Truffle, it's 6 layers of rich chocolate cake filled with a whipped ganache filling and then frosted with more whipped ganache. It is heaven on earth for chocolate lovers.. but make sure you have a tall glass of milk close by!
If you are doing a small wedding and are budget conscious, two or three small layered cakes sitting next to each other are a great option for you. With a few fresh flowers a cute patterned ribbon around the bottom, you have a great looking cake display that could be under $200! This is also a fun idea for bridal showers, engagement parties, bachelor parties, etc. etc. Anytime you have a special event.. you can always make a simple cake look fabulous while having it fit your budget.

If you are ever lucky enough to chill out at LaCaille for even 10 seconds... you will understand why this is the COOLEST venue for a wedding. It is beautiful, romantic, and the closest thing to a castle you'll get without heading to europe! Alli's wedding was absolutely gorgeous with cream and brown as the main colors with reds, yellows and oranges as accent colors. This cake was unique in that it wasn't stacked in the center as a traditional wedding cake, but it was stacked so all the back corners matched up. It was a great, elegant look with a twist. I think it turned out great.

Rob and Sara were the coolest couple to work with. I had so much fun designing and creating this Salvador Dali inspired cake for them. I have to admit, this is one of my favorite cakes I've ever made.
When I met them several months ago and The Bridal Extravaganza they showed me a picture on their phone of Salvador Dali's painting of "The Persistance of Memory". I love modern art, and I was immediatly, drawn to this couples creativity and imagination for not only the idea's for their wedding cake, but for their whole wedding. We got together and sketched out several different designs.. and this is what we came up with. The groom made the copper trees for the gumpaste clocks to hang on which I think were fabulous. Once again.. Rob and Sara.. you guys are amazing. Thank you for being so fun to work with. I wish you the best of luck in your marriage!
