Chinese Food

Rachel's Bat Mitzvah celebration was held at a Chinese restaurant, so they carried that theme over to her cake!

The torah scroll, fortune cookie, chop sticks and Chinese take-out box were all hand-sculpted out of rolled chocolate. Lavender buttercream flowers and ribbons were added to the design to tie in her color scheme and the cake came out so fun!

Emily and Ervin had their wedding reception at the Saphire Estate in Sharon and we were able to create their wedding cake for them!

Their all white cake was simple with our swiss dot design and a pearl border in vanilla buttercream. But the focus of the cake was the gorgeous, hand sculpted, white chocolate ruffle cascade!

Mackenzie had a ladybug themed 1st birthday party, and we created a custom, 2 tier cake to match the invitations to her party!

We've said it before, but an all white cake can be simply stunning when there are different textures to make the cake visually interesting. Today's Weddings Wednesday cake is a great example of that!

The bottom tier of this cake has a rolled chocolate covering that was gathered to look like fabric. The rest of the cake is covered in a rolled chocolate covering as well, and features 3 different designs done in buttercream. The second tier down features a custom monogram plaque with just a touch of gold and a bouquet of white rolled chocolate roses sits on top.

Modern Mitzvah

In September, Alli celebrated her Bat Mitzvah with this fun, modern 2 tier cake!

The bottom tier was frosted in sky blue buttercream frosting, and decorated with lavender and hot pink rolled chocolate stripes. The top tier was frosted in periwinkle buttercream frosting and decorated with sky blue and light green rolled chocolate rings and dots. The cake was then finished with some hot pink, 6 point Jewish shooting stars.

The foliage in New England in the fall is definitely a sight to be seen! So for Weddings Wednesday today, we're showcasing some foliage of our own!

This 3 tier wedding cake was made of off-set, square tiers, and a dark chocolate brown rolled chocolate band went around the bottom of each tier. A rolled chocolate bow sat on top and rolled chocolate leaves cascaded down the cake.

Toronto Blue Jays Baseball Cap

This baseball cap birthday cake was a fun, recent cake that we created, representing the guest of honor's favorite team!

The cake made up the main part of the hat. It was then covered in rolled chocolate and a rolled chocolate logo and brim were added. Our talented cake artists, never missing a detail, have even added the stitching to the seams!
