I would like to let you know, I will be away from my phone and email until Tuesday July 26th, so please leave a message and I will get back to you as soon as I get back in town.

Love to hear from you! is the best way to get ahold of me.

Gotta love black and white cakes. 
When you put just a splash of color on a cake like this it gives the cake a great pop! I love putting things on cakes that add drama.  This bright green ribbon does the trick.

Messy Buttercream

January and February are busy consultation months.  This cake had been the #1 most popular design thus far for 2011. 
I call this style, "Messy Butercream".  It's simple. Elegant. Soft and beautiful.  If you want a buttercream cake, I would suggest doing something like this instead of the smooth finish that looks like fondant.  If you are not going to use fondant for your cake.. you might as well make it look completely different.  Plus, it adds a beautiful texture as well as gives a modern twist to a traditional style of cake.

Cake Competition at the Spring Home and Garden Festival

I'm so happy today is over! I had a great time competing tonight.  I didn't win, but it was a lot of fun.  There were 3 of us competing against each other.  We had 2 HOURS to decorate an entire cake, with nothing done before hand.  It went by sooooooo fast! I could have done a better job with a little more time. I didn't get everything done I had planned, but I was overall happy with the final piece.  I named the cake "Relaxing after a day working in the yard".  Every side of the cake was a different room in a house with the top tier being a big bathroom with a girl relaxing in a bubble bath.

It was fun, but I don't think I'll be doing any of those Extreme Cake Challenges on Food Network any time soon! :)

This is the "Mud Room" Side of my house

This is the stairway.. The pictures on the wall are the 3 judges

This isn't a great picture, but this was my favorite "room" The family room with the striped walls.  The TV in the back is the show that the emcee is on. (Fresh from the kitchen on Channel 2)
The very large ugly flower is a "secret item" they gave us at the beginning of the competition and we had to incorporate it in the cake. 
I had spider mums! Really?? Have you seen the size of spider mums?  About the height of my tub! 
So I broke it down as small as I could and threw it in a vase. It's still too big.

Mud room again, but you can see some of the other sides at the same time.

This is the back of the cake or the backyard.  
This is the side I ran out of time on.  It was supposed to have a cobblestone path.. more grass and flowers, and it would have been nice if I put the path aligned with the door.  
Oh well.

Not the best picture, but here's the lady in her bubble bath.
A better homes and garden magazine and the Salt Lake Tribune (sponsor of the show) on the floor

Vintage Chic

This is probably one of my favorite cakes I've made this year.  I get inspiration from many things when I'm designing cakes.  Don't you think these flowers look like the cute hair bows that are out there?  That's what they reminded me of.

This was a super cool, super modern design I couldn't wait to try out.  
and yes..... it took hours to complete! 
I'm loving the yellow, white and grey color combination right now.

Dalia was the beautiful bride that I made this cake for.  I love the blue and black together.  This is a great example of mixing designs on each tier.

This cake was done for the beautiful, spunky, darling Mallary.  When she first met with me she said she wanted something plain and simple........ well...... when you are in wedding planning mode and have months to plan your perfect day.... things change.

We ended up getting a custom made template of her invitations to place on her cake. The font for the monogram is also the same font used in the menu's and invites.  I'm so glad she decided to change to something more custom because it is the small details like this that make your wedding cake more memorable and special.

Sock Monkey

I know we are in the heart of brides wanting to plan their wedding cake, but I had to post this fun cake I did this week.  Although this cake was for a darling little 1 year old, it could also be a great grooms cake.  Not that your hubby to be is a die-hard sock monkey fan, but it's a perfect example of what a grooms cake could be.
Grooms cakes are so much fun either at your wedding reception or even at the rehearsal dinner.  If you haven't heard of a grooms cake, it's a cake that is usually based on something your fiance loves.  Traditionally it was a chocolate layered cake since wedding cakes were usually just the plain ol vanilla.. but as you all know, weddings are no longer that "traditional".  Weddings cakes today have much more spunk than the normal chocolate grooms cake and vanilla wedding cake.  Grooms cakes now are sculpted and designed with the grooms interests in mind.  From baseballs to transformers, fishing to wakeboarding, a grooms cake will be a crowd pleaser as well as a thoughtful gift (and great surprise) for the love of your life.

Can you Have Modern and Vintage in the Same Cake?

Maybe it's my inner goth speaking here, but I LOVE black wedding cakes.  They are dramatic and  make a bold statement. At first site you know it's a different kind of cake so your guests rush over to look at it.  
As you can see with this cake, black can be very elegant.  A feminine touch with lace, swirls and delicate flowers gives this cake the perfect balance of modern and elegant. 

My favorite thing about this cake (besides working with this darling bride) was her desire to have something important to her on her cake.  The lace was from her mothers wedding dress.  This is a perfect example of how you can incorporate family heirlooms or a bit your own "vintage" pieces into your wedding. Having your own "vintage" incorporated into your wedding whether on your cake or other area's of your wedding day adds meaning as well as style to your special day.  It will be those special touches that you will remember for years to come.

Bridal Extravaganza- The Grand America

We just had an amazing fun time at the Bridal Extravaganza this past Saturday.  It was wonderful to meet with so many great brides.  I can't wait to start up cake consultations and begin designing away at all the great cakes for 2011!

I usually have limited availability for free cake consultations, but because of the huge interest from the show, I will be doing consultations for the next 2 months on a weekly basis.  You can email me at to set up a time to meet.  I do book most of my cakes for the whole year in January, so if you are interested in having me do your cake, now would be the time to reserve your wedding day.
