A spoon full of sugar….

I’m so happy it’s wedding season at last! I’ve been planning with lovely 2012 couples on the cake designs and now it’s time to unveil the collection over the next few months. Last weekend I created a whimsical Mary Poppins themed cake for Racheal’s Banana Split  bridal shower. So I incorporated the pin stripes from the attire worn , umbrellas and of course  spoons full of sugar. Since this was an adult event I wanted the theme to come of subtle and not too novelty. Enjoy!

Water Color Birthday Cake

I love how water color is making a big impact on textiles in fashion right now. I couldn’t help but be inspired by it for this banana birthday cake adorned with sugar flowers. So cute!

Dubai Wedding Cake with Carousel Girls

Looking back to when I first started cake decorating, I would never have imagined or dreamed that I would be in demand to design cakes and teach  internationally. I still can’t process how my work have grown so much in popularity but I am so very grateful or it. In mid May I designed and created another sugary masterpiece for a wedding produced by the ridiculously talented Carousel Girls.  Leena and Zainab of Carousel Girls really know how to go above and beyond for their couples and I’m always excited to help execute their vision with the wedding cake.

This 11 tier cake with 4 double height tiers consisted of : 2 trips to Dubai (13 hour flight each way), over 400 sugar flowers, several grams of 24 K gold and over 65 pounds of fondant. Thank you to both Sweet Stuff and the pastry kitchen  at the Raffles Hotel for welcoming me into their kitchens to create the towering cake.

Sweet Regards – L
