Merry-go-Round 1st Birthday

Is it just me or is this merry-go-round we call life spinning out of control? I am having too much fun making some adorable cakes this year. Today’s party is highlighting one of my favorites. Pastel pink, mint, lavender and gold pair beautifully for this first birthday bash. The cake was just one of the focal points at the carnival affair.

I was so impressed by all of the hard work put into the details of the party I had to take pictures of everything. The carousel ponies decorated the entire house from the entryway to the appetizer table, what’s even more impressive is that all these decorations were made by the birthday girl’s grandma! I love creative people!

I designed a cake based on the theme of the party and used all the pretty pastel colors with gold accents through out. The top tier is probably the main focus, a carousel replica with stomping gold ponies and an ornate pinnacle. The middle tier is a fun harlequin pattern which was personalized with a number and the birthday girl’s name. Lastly, the bottom tier, just girlie and flirty, ombre pink ruffles from top to bottom. Isn’t this cake just darling?

The cake was perfectly displayed on a dessert table decorated like a sweet shop. Yummy pastel colored candies and treats surrounded the three-tiered centerpiece.

Bohemian and Lace Wedding

DSC_0442

Kicking off summer with this bright and beautiful bohemian wedding. The couple shared their love for each other in front of friends and family at a hilltop estate over looking the Malibu hills. The table tops were decorated with simple elements; succulents, peonies, wildflowers filled milk-glass vases and leather-covered tins with other natural elements like burlap paired with delicate lace. It was just breath taking.

The cake and desserts followed the theme perfectly. A pretty lace wedding cake with a tiny cluster of pink roses for a final touch of pretty. The guests enjoyed their choice of rose decorated and tiffany blue cupcakes or a trio of macarons (a great gluten free option).
