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...

{Inspired} by Ruffles

     I’ve had a design relationship with ruffles for half of my life now, starting with my obsession of fabric before cake. It’s funny about  four years ago I was practically begging couples to trust me and design a ruffle wedding cake and now there’s a cake ruffle craze. Here’s a few of my favorite ruffle wedding cakes...

Inspired by Color: Coral Wedding Cakes

Color plays a huge role when it comes to designing the wedding cake, let alone setting the tone to the entire event. I want to share some color “cake flashbacks” to show different ways we have brought a color to the sweet life (pun intended.) First up, Coral. There’s something very happy and elegant about coral in which ...

I get asked a lot how long I’ve...

Emily And David’s Casa Loma Wedding Cake

Designing a cake for a couple is not just about technique and decorating but knowing how to style it to their tastes. I usually like them to describe the feel of their cake in few words, and as I’m creating every touch of their cake I literally have those few words echo in my head. For Emily and Davis those words...

Ruffled Wedding Cake

You gotta love the color pairing of bright fuschia and deep purple for this wedding cake. For the design, the cake had deep purple sugar orchids and fuschia peonies to embellish the cake covered in A - symmetrical fondant ruffles. With royal icing I hand piped and painted silver these feathers with pearl accents. The flavor was...

Wedding cakes covered with sugar flowers won’t be going out of style any time soon, or really ever. They are timeless and beautiful. For Xiaoxi’s wedding at The King Edward Hotel we covered her cake in soft pink roses and garden flowers with hints of purple. Clusters or glittery pearls completely the design of this...

Amsale inspired Wedding Cake

I think one of the biggest misconception with making a haute couture cake, is that you need to replicate is right down the shape. Personally I love the shape of cake and it’s stacked cake forms and rather design dressing the structure of a wedding cake. I’m not really big on the doing the obvious...

When I met with the gorgeous bride, Anastasia she was very excited to design a custom ruffle wedding cake similar to the Vera Wang inspired design. We customized the shape , size and colour to best suit her wedding and accented it with soft purple flowers and bejeweled touches. I don’t often get to see the bride when delivering  but I...
