Disney Fairy Cake

We love making this tiered cake for little girls birthdays! What little girl doesn't love fairies, flowers and woodland creatures!

This two tiered fondant cake, covered in a mossy green tinted base has blades of grass placed individually on the base of each tier in variegated tones of green. Five petal pale pink daisies and green sugarpaste leaves along with dark chocolate mushroom add a bit of whimsy to this fun birthday cake.

The cake flavor includes devilish chocolate cake with vanilla buttercream filling with fondant covering.

Gerbera Daisy & Chocolate Wedding Cake @ Independence Harbor, Assonet Massachuetts

One of my favorite venues is the flawless and perfectly kept gardens of Independence Harbor in Assonet Massachusetts. This particular wedding, held on a blustery afternoon in October included gorgeous fresh gerbera daisy blossoms by Nancy and her talented staff at A Wareham Florist. Bright yellows, fushias, oranges and reds were showstopping on this white buttercream cake with tiny hand piped five petal daisy accents. The dark chocolate colored band at the base of each tier is completely edible and hand rolled from dark chocolate sugarpaste and then polished to a satin finish. Piped over the chocolate band is a small base of ivory pearls.

The chilly day was foiled by a fresh fruit cake: vanilla butter cake soaked in vanilla bean syrup with fresh strawberries and buttercream filling.

Here is the original sketch:

First Birthday: Minnie Mouse Cake @ Pocasset, Massachusetts

My niece turned one a few weeks ago, she's the only little one in the family so her 1st birthday party was a big deal and she was the princess at the party. Minnie Mouse was the theme and her two tiered cake featured pinks, black, white, and even included seasonal zinnias. Minnie Mouses ears adorned the top along with a big "1".

Here is Makayla's First 1st Birthday Smash Cake!

Here is Makayla decked out in her new Minnie Mouse "couture"!

Her cake included two tiers: one chocolate one vanilla with vanilla buttercream filling all covered in fondant.

Wedding Favors: Cake Truffles

About a six months ago one of our brides asked us to start thinking about creating an incredibly special favor for her wedding reception guests. The bride told us how she has been a bridesmaid in 15 diferent weddings and she was tired of the same old favor set at each place setting. But she also kept talking about these cake truffles she had heard about.

After some contemplation I called Carly at 8:00am on Monday morning with an idea: a box of cake truffles in each each guests' room along with a small bottle of Neige Ice Cider.

I had a few sample boxes sent from a supplier and made them up today, these are not in Carly's colors (brown and blue) but don't they look cute!

We'll have the cake truffles for sale at the holidays as gift boxes with an assortment of four varieties with 15 total truffles per box. They come in a variety of flavors: Three Brothers Hazelnut Chocolate, Raspberry White Chocolate, Lemon Twist, Raspberry Chambord, Cookies & Cream, Brute Chocolate Truffle

Autumn Pleats Wedding Cake @ Cape Cod Private Residence

An intimiate gathering at a breathtaking Classic Cape Cod Home in Dennis, Massachusetts was the backdrop for this fall themed wedding. The bride's dress complete with horizontal pleats was the inspiration for the cake. Not many people are concerned with the back of the cake, but I learned at the end of our consultation that the bride had removed the silver buttoms from her great grandmothers wedding gown to be used as closures on her own- from that moment on - the back of the cake became a priority.

The back of the cake features small silver dusted pearls running from top to bottom. The topper: an arrangement of classic fall blooms in autumnal shades.
Small groupings of flowers create a balanced display, along with tiny white tea roses which were mainstays in the bride's and bridesmaid's bouquets.

The silver tray, one from the mother-of-the bride was a beautiful accent to the cake display.

Cake flavors included: Vanilla Butter Cake with Oreos and Cream filling and Pistachio Cake with Raspberry Buttercream

Anniversary CupCake Display and Cake

We delivered this small cupcake stand and small cake to an anniversary party in Westport, Massachusetts.

The 40 cupcakes were decorated in edible organic nasturshiam blossoms in bright orange, shades of yellow, burgundy, and fushia reds.

Bittersweet Farm is a gorgeous site for small weddings and anniversary gatherings in Westport, Massachusetts and made a great backdrop for our rustic and seasonal floral cupcake design.

Calla Lillies & Vine Wedding Cake @ Marion Road, Rochester, Massachusetts

We created this four tier buttercream wedding cake for a casual outdoor wedding at a private residence in Rochester, Massachusetts.

A chocolate vine with tiny dark chocolate five-petal flowers, with a pearl center, covered the vine along with dark hunter green leaves. A piped buttercream border in varying sizes created a border at the base of each tier & over one dozen white handmade sugarpaste calla lillies cascaded over the top tier.

This design is slightly casual while the calla lillies create a more formal edge.

The cake flavors included vanilla butter cake with raspberry marmalade and devilish chocolate cake with vanilla buttercream.

Fun & Whimsical Wedding Cake

The three tiered buttercreaam designed was hand piped with black swirls, dots, and fun design. Sugarpaste pearls were placed as a border at the base of each tier and a black and white sugarpaste handmade monogram was placed on the side of the top tier.

This hot pink fushia, black, and pearl wedding cake was created for a small wedding ceremony in Taunton, Massachusetts.

This design could easily be translated into a variety of color schemes, or even shades of white and cream for a whimsical addition to a wedding reception.

The cake flavor included vanilla butter cake with buttercream frosting.

Jewel Toned Wedding Cake @ Indian Pond Country Club, Kingston, Massachusetts

I have officially found my favorite wedding & event venue on the South Shore: Indian Pond Country Club @ 60 Country Club Road in Kingston, Massachusetts.

This place is a stunner, we drove the pine-lined drive which opened up to a gorgeous clubhouse and the only word my assistant and I uttered was: "Wow!".

Shades of ivory and small details like raised panel walls, two elaborate mahogany bars, and a high chair rail make the ballroom something reminiscent of Newport, Rhode Island-- however the view of the rolling greens and tall pine trees remind you that you actually are standing on the South Coast of Massachusetts.

The flowers by my new find: Bella Flora by Alexis out of Bridgewater, Massachusetts were breathtaking jewel tones all in seasonal blossoms!

The cake: an ivory four-tier buttercream cake with small piping details: swirl, five petal flowers and scroll work. The decor: seasonal blooms in dark orange, reds, purples, magenta pink, chartreuse green. The blooms: dahlias, zinnias, dendrobium orchids, green spider mums, & spray roses.

A small detail which "made" the whole setup was the hand guilded two-tiered gold board on which the cake sat. This gold pulled from the gold chairs in the ballroom and the gold rimmed chargers set at each guests place setting!

The cake flavor to match the jewel toned wedding: vanilla butter cake with layers of raspberry marmalade and apricot marmalade.
