What a lovely surprise! You may recall the fantastic couple, Natalie and James, whose cake I did last fall. They are one of the sweetest couples I’ve met, and their gorgeous wedding was featured yesterday on Style Me Pretty. Check out all the lovely family and vintage details from the day - it was truly beautiful!

Ben & Leah’s Wedding

Sunday, March 14th, 2010

Fluttery discs square

Last night, my fiance and I celebrated the marriage of our dear friends Ben and Leah at the lovely Hamilton Twelve outside of Austin. After a beautiful ceremony, we enjoyed the amazing Austin weather at the outdoor reception and danced the night away with friends and family.

Ben and Leah asked me to create their wedding cake(s) a while back, and it was such a pleasure and honor to design something special for them. Rather than the classic bride and groom cake combination, the couple wanted to have multiple coordinated cakes that were each unique in design. I created three cakes, including one that was inspired by the lace pattern in the bride’s dress. The topper on the green cake was actually designed and created by the groom! The cakes were split between our Lemon-Raspberry Dream and Southern Red Velvet flavors.

Holiday / Christmas Cake with Fondant Bow

Holiday / Christmas Cake with Fondant Bow

Happy holidays, everyone! I can’t believe we’re halfway through December. I haven’t done a bit of Christmas shopping - ugh!! However, I have been busy designing away - here’s the latest project. This holiday-themed design included red, white, and silver accents, including a large fondant bow topper. Of all the “stripe-y” cakes I’ve done, I’m most pleased with the vertical stripes on the bottom tier of this one… :)

I’ll have several more designs to share before the holiday break… stay tuned!

5-Tier Modern Cake with Handmade Sugar Orchids

Sunday, December 6th, 2009

I can’t tell you how excited I was to design this cake! The design is is five tiers, inspired by the lovely centerpiece arrangements created by Michelle at the Silver Vase. Each tier was covered in pearly white or teal fondant and accented with brown satin ribbon. My favorite part of the design is the cascade of delicate, handmade sugar orchids.

Hi all! Just wanted to share the lovely post that Meg of Sienna Wedding: Finds for the Modern Bride did earlier this month on Wicked Cakes…

From Sienna Wedding:

When I came upon this cake by Austin based cake designers at Wicked Cakes, I could not pass up the chance to post it. I love the simplicity of the cake itself, and the pop of color and life that comes from the butterflies.

Check out the blog! Meg brings together absolutely lovely photos of all things wedding, from cakes to exquisite table settings to real weddings. Thanks, Meg!
