White and Silver Wedding Cake

Tuesday, July 5th, 2011

 

This Mini 3 Tier Wedding Cake travelled all the way to Ottawa for a winter wedding. It’s perfect for a smaller guest list while still maintaining that big wedding cake look. Each tier of this cake borrows from 3 separate cake designs. The different designs are tied together by the use of pearls accents on each tier, in the brooch and around the base of each tier. The entire cake is covered in off-white fondant with the accents ‘pearlized’ (dusted with pearl dust) and the bride’s silver wedding dress inspired the use of silver ribbon. The extra-large cake board and gathered fabric look of the fondant on the board creates more presence for this mini wedding cake.

The top tier of this cake features 3D sugar-flowers and leaves with vines piped on and accented with pearls. It was inspired by a cookie design that the couple found in a wedding cake magazine. On the top of this tier the initials of the bride and groom were piped on. The middle tier was done in a classic quilted pattern and the base tier was done in an equally classic Damask pattern.

Top Tier – 4 inch round Vanilla Raspberry Cake with Cointreau Buttercream

Middle Tier – 6 inch round Banana Chocolate Chip Cake with Light Chocolate Buttercream

Base Tier – 8 inch round Chocolate Cake with Semi-sweet Chocolate Buttercream and a middle layer of Snickers (chocolate bar) Chunks

This White and Silver Mini 3 Tier Wedding Cake provided 36-38 servings making it a great size for bridal showers and anniversaries as well.

Ajax Fall Wedding Show 2009 – Bridal Shower Cake Draw

Monday, September 21st, 2009

The 2009 Fall Wedding Show hosted by Durham Wedding Source was a huge success! We met so many great brides and vendors, enjoyed the fashion show, and snacked on scrumptious hors d’oeuvres courtesy of the Ajax Convention Centre. We would like to congratulate Teresa Fryer, winner of our Bridal Shower Cake Draw, and thank everyone that entered. Last year’s winner of the draw chose a white two tiered chocolate cake decorated in a winter theme with snowflakes, red ribbon and an edible red rose. We’ll be sure to feature this year’s winner after her bridal shower. Our new website will be up soon with our flavor and pricing info and we’d like to invite you to contact us for a complimentary cake tasting.  

As a sidenote about tradeshows I think it’s a good idea for brides to print return addressed labels to use when entering contests at the show. Almost every vendor at the show has a draw of some sort. If you are intent on maximizing on these contests then having pre-made contact labels is going to save you the trouble of writing out your info 40 times AND the time it takes to wait for a pen to become available. I also strongly reccomend bringing a friend to the wedding show. There is so much to see and it can be a really fun day that you’ll want to share.

Wedding Cake Truffles!

Thursday, July 16th, 2009

 

These cake truffles which we delivered to Le Treport in Mississauga were part of a unique wedding favour which included a charitable donation made in the name of the couple’s wedding guests. Featured above are truffles coated with milk chocolate and make with chocoalte cake and dulce de leche buttercream.

“Just wanted to say that the cake truffles turned out amazing. The packaging was very simple, yet elegant and went with my theme perfectly. We had alot of compliments on how great the truffles tasted, alot of impressed guests. The only problem, there was SO MANY yummy flavours to choose from. It was the perfect thing to go with our donation as our wedding gift. The was an absolute pleasure working with you again. I look forward to future business with you!!!                                                       A. DeMelo

Baptism Cross Cookies

These custom sugar cookies were a small part of a celebration for a little baby boy’s baptisim. Forty vanilla cookies were covered in sky blue vanilla royal icing and accented with the little guy’s name,  a sanding sugar trim and a little royal icing daisy.
