Celebrate with Our Artfully Crafted Wedding and Event Cakes

Wafer paper flowers, flower petals dressing up 2 tiers of creamy and moist vanilla cake. Ruffled bottom tier. Subtle hues of ivory with simple monograms. This cake was a standout at San Diego's famed US Grant Hotel. The reception was held in the historic Bivouac Ballroom, one time speakeasy and later (after prohibition) a nightclub for swing bands and Hollywood types. Perfect for vintage touches and sublime creativity. 

Each of these cakes tells a story.

Happy Birthday Bad "B*&$#h." A get-together to celebrate a very special lady whose favorite color is, of She is not shy when it comes to expressing herself even in a crowd of people, in this case her loyal fun loving fans. This was one memorable birthday as she and her guests laughed, ate cake and partied into the night. 

"Just Married." A work in progress. Shown here, just a few moments before completion, this vintage heart shaped cake was carefully transported to a giant 3 story beach home in Coronado, California. Built in the 1930's, this home's intimate and very floral backyard gave way to quiet weekend nuptials and an elegant dinner catered by one of San Diego's finest chefs.

Tale as old as Time. Beauty and the Beast inspired first date red roses and gold flourishes, embellishments. Magic floating thru the air, be our guests. A nod to animators and caricature inventors everywhere.

Think heartbeats, love, romance and sweetness. Shirley Temples on ice.
