Wedding Cake for Weddingbells 25th Anniversary Party | Windsor Arms Hotel Toronto

    This week has been a fun packed busy week for me. First I taught two more classes at the Bonnie Gordon Cake School here in Toronto (Haute Couture Class and Painting on Cakes). Second, I had the opportunity to be apart of The Cake Showtoday as a guest speaker, and third I  got to design a lovely cake for Weddingbells Magazine’s 25th Anniversary party, held at the Windsor Arms Hotel on . The party showcased 25 of Toronto’s talented cake designers (all who trained under the Bonnie Gordon School), and I felt fortunate to be amongst such a creative group.
    For this design I wanted to showcase how I design wedding cakes. So a dash of vintage, a hint couture, and of course some bling was my recipe for this pink and peach cake design.
   To finish such a great week I will be a Judge (yes , not competing, judging) at the main event of The Cake Show tomorrow at the Wychwood Barns . The event is open to the public and an affair of all cake affairs and I highly recommend stopping by to view and TASTE some of the best cakes Toronto and Ontario  has to offer. For more information, check out it out here.

Purple Wedding Cakes | Toronto Wedding Cake Designer | Rowell Photography

The wedding color palette tends be one of the first decisions a bride make when designing her wedding. Every year there tends to be trends of popular shades, but this year I’m loving the vast color palettes my couples are bringing to their cake consultations. One color that seems to stand out more then once this year is purple. It’s funny how one year a color can be out and then back in , in a new way. Here’s a wedding cake design I did last year with several shades of purple fondant ruffles on a neutral grey base with hints of silver.
