This iPhone was made as a grooms cake to reflect the groom's love of his phone! The bride took a snapshot of his desktop and sent it to me from his phone (sneaky!) so that I could create the apps exactly like the ones on his phone! You can barely see it in this photo, but he had 52 emails!!! Woah, that stresses me out just thinking about it!

This cake was created for a friend of mine who loves navy and white as much as I do! She chose this navy crumb catcher design to add some style and contrast to the wedding reception. Dave and Danielle are the perfect couple, and we wish them so much happiness!!

This cake was made for a fascinating 4 year old! He loves to surf, and LOVES Star Wars... how cool can a 4 year old get!? He asked specifically for a storm trooper cake, and I was very happy to make it for him. Not knowing a thing about Star Wars, I had some research to do. I guess Storm Troopers are the bad guys, and come to think of it their mask is quite ominous and grumpy. To accompany the cake, there were OREO cupcakes: marshmallow buttercream on chocolate cake garnished with an OREO cookie, perfectly black and white.
The inspiration for the design on the side of the cake was this Irish Knot cake topper. The symbol on the interior of the heart is the Celtic Trinity symbol, similar to a cross. It is encased in the heart as a traditional Irish wedding symbol. This particular bride wanted to incorporate her heritage in the colors and symbols on her cake, so I made this custom design to include the symbol in light green buttercream.

When I met this bride, she had an picture of the exact cake she wanted. I could tell by the photo that the bride had a lot of style, and suggested that I draw up a couple sketches for her. Not only was I thrilled when she said "Yes" to the suggestions, I was over the top when she picked one for her wedding cake. Every bride has her own unique style, sometimes you just have to dig in find that perfect cake.
