Pink and Lace

It’s been another long stretch of time since we’ve posted, but admittedly, we’ve been quite busy with kids – Cathy’s full time job of being a wonderful mother and my full time job of working with kids for my day job!  We’ve had the opportunity to squeeze some cake time in there, so we’ll be updated the blog slowly but surely. :)

We had the pleasure of doing a wedding cake for two dear friends of ours.  The bride, Sarah, is the sweetest person you’ll ever meet.  She is a girly girl to the max, and had such a beautiful shabby chic-inspired wedding complete with mason jars, succulent favors, and flowers in beautiful shades of pink.

When Sarah came to us, she had different visions for her cake, so after lots of sketching and discussing, we nailed it down to a simple lace design (to coordinate with her beautiful wedding dress) complete with bold pink flowers to add some pops of color.  We also made vanilla cupcakes, some decorated with blush pink nonpareils and others decorated with a fondant medallion with a subtle lace imprint.

During the cake-making process, we were a little stumped of how we could achieve the lace look effectively without using special lace cutters or molds.  Thankfully, we had the help of a friend (Dani!) to help us create the lace look.  We couldn’t have done it without her!

Sarah and Austin, thank you SO much for picking us to do your wedding cake!  We love you guys!  Also, photo credit goes to the wonderful and amazing Cathy Breslow!

If you look closely, you can see the lace imprint in the fondant medallions. It added a small touch of sophistication to the cupcakes.
