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 turia@sugarkissescakes.com 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.
Welcome to Sugar Kisses Cakes Blog! Where you can see everything I'm working on and doing on a daily basis! Hope you enjoy the site.. and remember....
