Halloween Twist

Today's Weddings Wednesday featured cake proves that you don't need pumpkins and leaves to achieve an autumn or Halloween inspired wedding cake. One of our couples chose to have their wedding cake covered in chocolate ganache! A few of our hand-made chocolate butterflies and some autumn colored rose petals, with the addition of a Corpse Bride inspired topper, stand out strikingly against the dark chocolate background.

Featured Friday - Sushi!

Today's Featured Friday creation looks like sushi, except there's no raw fish here...'s all dessert!

We had this sushi cake request for someone's 40th birthday. Like we said, there's no raw fish here, but we used many different components to make this look authentic. We used fresh fruits such as mango, kiwi, and blood orange. Anything that looks like rice is actually rice, made with coconut milk to add sweetness. There are also components of cake, rolled chocolate, fondant, almond marzipan and pistachio marzipan in there.

We think it came out pretty good, if we do say so ourselves! Good enough that the person biting into it might be surprised that it's sweet and not savory!
