These mini desserts highlight Italy’s love for Tiramisu.  Batter Up Bakery created tiramisu in a dessert shooter  cup. Luscious layers of almond cake and and custard covered cocoa powder makes this tiny dessert a huge hit.  They also prepared their signature mini cannolis and fresh fruit tarts.  Their fruit tart shells are always painted with dark hardened chocolate to give you that extra boost of flavor and richness. For your event,  nothing but the best ingredients are used.

The secret ingredient is always love!

Today’s couples are about personalization and experiences. Crystal and Joey love cooking, so we created the kitchen herb garden being a sense of storytelling to this styled shoot. With various shades of green to reflect the colors found in home garden herbs, a pop of femininity with blush, mauves and a statement blue (which happens to be the Pantone of 2020) which balances it with a masculine tone. A modern, delicate and romantic aesthetic featuring multiple varieties of herbs and plant life with a soft balance of color and tactile textures help provide a feeling of life and love.

Wedding Cake

About this cake:

This creation is a three tiered cake for a wedding for over 200 guests.  In a rustic, but elegant style, iced with real whipped cream and decorated in the Italian drywall icing style. With a touch of rustic greenery in eucalyptus, then to add elegance, classic garden roses were used.  A black acrylic cake topper brings a hint of modern into this semi-rustic look.

About this Cake:

Petite cakes are great for a smaller wedding of 50 guests or as a beautiful addition to mini desserts. They ALWAYS want to be raised up with a pretty cake stand to look more elegant. Sweet Cheeks Baking Co. iced this pretty cake and then highlighted the fluffed rose-colored buttercream with touches of 14kt gold and white, using petal dust mixed with vegetable oil. Signature Wedding Cake Flavor for this garden wedding: vanilla bean cake infused with a honey-Bourbon toddy, layered with Lemon Buttercream and Cream Cheese filling…yummmm!

One of San Diego’s largest events of the year has inspired this Thursday’s inspiration. Comic-Con comes around every summer, which creates quite the crowd in downtown San Diego. People come from all over the country just to attend the huge convention. So what better way to celebrate this year’s Comic-Con than by using some superhero inspiration for your wedding. This couple incorporated both Superman and Wonder Woman into their wedding day look. They used bold colors like red, blue and yellow that were reminiscent of comic books themselves. The cake was kept simple with just white and gold, but they did have some crazy fun desserts. Their photo booth was also very creative with their silly props. This fun couple got their theme down to every last little detail. A unique wedding like this would definitely not be one to forget.

Wedding CakeThere will always be the traditional white wedding cake and naked cakes are still popular now, but since the cake plays such a big roll in your reception, why not add a pop of color and grab some attention?!?  The royal blue base immediately catches your eye and we love the texture of the two white layers, but the bright orange flowers are the bomb!
