Love Unique

My friends at Unique Designs have launched their new blog. Have you been over there to check it out yet? I have not seen more amazing invitations anywhere! They will absolutely create something stunning and "unique" for your event.

The new blog is just the beginning for them. They have a new logo, a new look, and soon... a new website. I can't wait to see it. I have seen some of the super secret pictures, and they are amazing too! I love Unique... and I know you will too.

Darling Damask

I had the pleasure of making Annie's wedding cake this weekend. I have to say that she had some of the worst weather I've seen on a wedding day in a long time. She took it all in stride. They got married under umbrellas and looked good doing it.

I really don't like cake deliveries in the rain. Not only is the drive terrifying ( we saw three wrecks on the way to the reception site) but getting the cake out of the van and into the venue is a challenge. I'm happy to say that Annie's cake arrived safely ( and dryly) The reception was decorated with black and white damask with pink flowers. It was beautiful, and the cake matched perfectly.

Ready For My Close Up

You can probably tell that I am in Love with the pictures that Lindsey of Pure by Lindsey shot of my cake. This one is now a featured cake on my website. This is a close up of the sugar peony that I made for Matt and Tracey's wedding cake.

Speaking of Matt and Tracey, I got the sweetest note from Tracey!

Hi Kristy,
The cake was absolutely amazing!! I didn't get to eat much of it, but what I did eat was so good! People are still telling us how good it was and how awesome it looked!

Thanks again!

My job is so awesome!

Touchy Touchy

A few months ago Susan, from Powers Photography, sent me some images that they took of my gator Groom's cake. This is beautiful bride and groom cutting the cake. Do you notice anything about the gator? Let me help you find it...

This is the cake the way it was delivered.

Do you notice anything now??? :)
I don't know why, but people LOVE touching cakes. This poor gator got poked in the eye and had his teeth pulled out before the couple got to cut him. I'm going to blame this one on kids attending the wedding. Surely it was a child who didn't know better, right? You'd be surprised how many touchy touchy grown ups I've seen out there.

Remember folks, it's a cake and other people are going to eat it. Let's try to keep our fingers to ourselves :) (spoken in my best "Mom" voice)

A big thanks to Powers Photography for the images! More pictures of this beautiful wedding are featured on their website.

Magazine Worthy!

I am beyond excited to show you these pictures of Matt and Tracey's wedding cake!!!! Lindsey Tropf , of Pure by Lindsey, did an amazing job photographing their cake. It looks like it should be in a magazine! It is so thrilling to have my work photographed by someone so talented! Her style is so modern and cool. If you haven't been to her website, you should definitely check it out!

This picture features my tuxedo cake, alternating layers of white and chocolate fudge cake filled with chocolate mousse, white chocolate mousse and chocolate ganache! Yummy!!!

One last thing, the peony is hand made out of sugar! It's one of my favorite things about this cake. Each time I put another petal on, I loved it more!!!!

Ceck Us Out!

We've been blogged about! Matt and Tracey are the sweetest couple and I was thrilled to make their cake. Their wedding (including the cake) is featured on two blogs today.

The ladies of Masterpiece weddings did a fabulous job with all the details. You can read about how they did it here.

This is me working on the cake, captured by Amanda of Masterpiece Weddings.

The next blog we made an appearance on is Pure by Lindsey. She is an amazing photographer with such a cool style. Check out her beautiful pictures of the wedding here.

Awesome Angle

Two weeks ago I had the pleasure of meeting Jordan Smith from Green Flamingo Photo. She is such a cool girl and her work is so amazing! She took this picture of one of my cakes and I absolutely love it! It's such a interesting angle and really different than any I've had taken before. Thanks Jordan!

If you haven't already, go check out her website!

Photon Studio

Last week, I participated in a beautiful event by Avie at Bay Laurel. I was lucky enough to have my cake and pretzels photographed by Dana Rasmussen of Photon Studio! I am completely in love with the image of the cake. I don't usually like pictures of the back side of cakes, but this one is just so beautifully shot.
The pretzels were a huge hit and so was my new creation... cake shots. They are super fun, and I'll be posting more about them later.

I want to thank Angela for including me in this event and Dana for the awesome pictures!
