Laduree Inspired Sweet Table with Principal Planner

      I’m really lucky to have found what I love to do as a cake designer, and even luckier to meet extremely talented people in this industry who have the same passion in creating beauty for wonderful couples. What drives me is pushing my creativity and making couples surprised and happy in their wedding cake. So when Azar from Montreal’s leading wedding planning company, Principal Planner Events  , (yes, you MUST check her work out …breathtaking!)  and the uber talent Monique Simone Photography asked me to create a wedding cake design for a “Laduree Inspired” sweet table, I couldn’t say no to work with such passionate and creative wedding vendors. This is a terrific example about how wedding vendors are very much a team when working together in a wedding and when we are all focused in exceeding couple’s expectation the result is perfection. There are so many beautiful little details Azar styled in this dessert table that I’m just going to let the lovely photos speak for itself. Make sure to check out the team that came together for this shoot (that btw was recently featured on the Amy Atlas blog).

Sweet Regards – L

"Too Cute" Cakes: Featured in Weddingbells Magazine

I’m going through a stage where I’m obsessed with all things cutesy and pretty. I’m even loving pink, glitter, and even started taking ballet lessons. This is coming from a past tomboy who wore overalls and plaid  (usually covered in mud). I guess you can my style has evolved and the little princess in me likes to come out when I  least suspected it. So when Weddingbells Magazine asked me to do a very “Cute + Playful” cake adorned with multiple shades of pastels, I couldn’t resist having fun with this cake.

For the design I was inspired by letterpress (thank you to the talented Deb from Palettera for lending me the templates for embossing and then painting), and felt flowers flowers (made in sugar paste of course.) When you put all these pastels together with a golden heart in a design,  you can’t help but think of the sweetness of  young hearts.

Weddingbells Magazine is now on stands nationwide. Look out for Part 2 & 3  next week to see two other cakes I designed that were featured in the Magazine.
