One "Suite" Week

When I first started baking, I would always take 100 pictures of projects. Then as I got busier, I only started making time to photograph only the projects that were different than what I had previously done. Now, with so much variety and volume we are lucky to get a photo of anything leaving the bakery!I decided that I wanted to give our clients a glimpse into what do, all of it! The photos below are from a full week in November at The Sugar Suite, and captures the variety of what we do and the attention to each project.

First off, let me introduce the team. Over the past 10 weeks we have enjoyed the company of two externs from Le Cordon Bleu. In the photo below from the left in the pink is me (Jennyfer), next is Brook Ogletree (extern from Le Cordon Bleu), then Megan Stelma (our Pastry Chef!), and on the far right in pink is Mary Lou Bradley (extern from Le Cordon Bleu).
First Up: Our passion, the wedding cake!

This cake was a mini version of a cake we made a couple weeks ago. Believe it or not, it only stood 12", and the bottom tier was 8" round. The bride provided a cake stand which always adds a super personal touch to the dessert presentation.

This cake was inspired by a Martha Stewart Cake that was originally in pink with lovebirds perched on top. I knew the bride had her own topper, but didn't know what until I arrived on-site. I love personal touches!

This was also a mini cake designed for an intimate reception at Circa in Winter Park. The brooch center of the roses adds a vintage and elegant touch to a clean and romantic design.

When we went to deliver this cake, the florals weren't ready, so this is is an image of the cake that inspired the actual cake. Same dimension and design. Unfortunately, things don't always go as planned, but allowing the florist to place the flowers is never a problem considering their expertise!

Next, onto our Specialty Cakes, to see more visit our Celebration Cake GalleryThis was a grooms cake for a groom addicted to his Palm Pre. Mix that with his love for superman, this phone cake is a hyper custom representation of the grooms personality. This wedding took place at the Summerlin House in downtown Orlando

My design directions for this cake were simply two angles "40" and "manly" ... and voila!

This birthday cake was for a 16 year old girl that couldn't have been sweeter! She loves the beach, and wanted some interesting characters on her cake like Scoobie and a girly octopus.

This baby shower cake was inspired by the invitation From Zazzle. We added our own girly clothing, including some ruffly bloomers. Also, we used the mommy-to-be's favorite color butter yellow and the baby's bedding which included dragonflies.

An then our first love, cupcakes! To see more of our cupcakes, visit our Cupcake Gallery
The theme of this baby shower was "welcome our new little pumpkin" and the little giggling baby mimicked the invitation. The flavor was of course spice cake with pumpkin buttercream.

So that was a week with The Sugar Suite! We love what we do, and thank you for being a part of it!
