Signature Nastursham Cupcakes: Cupcakes decorated with edible organic flower blossoms

Signature CupCakes for a Wedding in South Dartmouth

We created 250 cupcakes for a wedding at Hawthorne Country Club in Dartmouth, Massachusetts. The weddings colors were autumn shades of deep reds, burnt orange, cranberry, and hunter green we coordinated the nastursham and mallow flower blossoms from Lucky Field Organics farm with the wedding colors. We used three cupcake stands, two of our small stands (hold 40-70 cupcakes each) and one of our medium stands (holds 100-120 cupcakes. The blossoms are totally edible and taste a little peppery (yum)!

The cupcake flavors included: cafe mocha w/espresso buttercream, pumpkin cupcakes with cream cheese icing, and vanilla cupcakes with vanilla buttercream

Avant Garde Nutcracker Doll Cake Makes an Encore

Corinna Raznikov of Raznikov Photography was kind to blog about us on her site:

Corinna's flawless tablescape set off her red and pink "JosieCat" cake just beautifully!

Here are some of the gorgeous pictures she took!

Red Carpet Sweet 16

This Red Carpet Themed Sweet 16 Cake was a real hit. Red, Black, Silver and Gold colors filled the party venue. The birthday girl loved our "Happy New Year Cake" and we transformed it into a Three Tiered Sweet 16 star-topped wonder! The metallic gold star topper, reminiscent of the stars on Hollywood Blvd was a great touch.
Each piece of confetti was hand dusted in metallic gold and silver. The lettering is a flood-out 3-D design, each word is a single piece of icing and they sit on the ledge of each cake.

We delivered this Sweet 16 Cake to the Elks Hall in Middleboro Massachusetts and the flavors matched the party colors: separate tiers of vanilla butter cake and red velvet cake all with vanilla buttercream.

Laptop Computer Cake

We created this 3-D laptop computer cake for a 70th birthday party. The granddaughter of the birthday boy is from California and ordered the cake as a surprise for her grandfather who loves to play solitare on his new laptop!

We personalized this computer cake with a "PaPa" logo and we added a DVD player and inputs and a full keyboard. The screen included an "Incoming Message" from Danielle, "Happy Birthday Papa" with small envelopes and stars.

The cake flavor- his favorite- vanilla cake with chocolate mousse filling.

Double Bows and Presents

Here are Jessica's Bridal Shower and Wedding Cakes.

The Bridal Shower Cake featured another bow- only this time on a very sweet gift box of devilish chocolate cake with truffle filling!

The Wedding Cake featured white fondant with double bows at the base of each tier. Her linens, in a beautiful white and black brocade, were a perfect match to her the shiny satin ribbon. The monogram script topper, was handcast from sugarpaste.

Pink Shopping Bag w/Stilleto

Jessica is a great customer of ours, we have done her bridal shower, wedding and now a very special birthday cake. She always has fantastic taste!

This stunningly superb stilleto was accompanied by a fushia pink zebra shopping bag filled with sugarpaste "tissue paper" in silver, pink, & black. A pearl necklace peeked out of the bag along with tiny edible pearls and edible glitter! There is nothing like fushia pink, black, silver, and animal print all tied into a fashionable cake! The cake was our vanilla butter cake with chocolate ganache buttercream filling.

A White Wedding Cake @ Kittansett Club Marion, MA

It isn't too often that a simply white wedding cake crosses our path at The Artisan Kitchen.

Our signature bow, tiny daisies, and a simply elegant crosshatch pattern covered this cake for a fabulous wedding at Kittansett Club on Buzzards Bay in Marion Massachusetts. The three-loop bow, made to look more casual (Margaret, the bride, called it "floppy") made quite a statement. The cake featured lemon cake with altnernating layers of raspberry marmalade and lemon buttercream filling.

Bridal Shower Cakes: Tiffany Boxes and Brides

What goes together better than Tiffany Boxes and Brides?!?

Weddings are in the air on the South Coast of Massachusetts, Cape Cod, and The Islands and bridal showers have been the theme. One cake, our Tiffany Box Stack Cake made it all the way to Newburgh, NY. A very bumpy ride down I-84! The other is a bride. She matched invitation to the event. This cake only scooted over to Marion, MA at a waterfront home on Sippican Harbor.

The Tiffany Box cake was vanilla butter and devilish chocolate with vanilla buttercream. The Bride Cake was alternating layers of chocolate and vanilla with Oreos and Cream filling and Raspberry Marmalade, YUM!
