Minnie Mouse Fever!

These past few weeks have been all about the Ears!  Minnie Mouse fever seems to be sweeping the Boston area: red, pink, black, white, polka dots, bow ties - the works!  For this week's blog, we thought we'd share a few of our Minnie Mouse Theme creations...

It's all about the NEON!

It's Thursday and the weather is wet, so why not party like it's 1999? Whether you're a legging-clad hipster from the '80s or simply a black light blowling enthusiast, NEON is the look for you!  We've done several variations on this popular theme in the past...

from a bright 16th Birthday cake... a Sensational Splatter Paint cake... a 8th Birthday cake covering the whole rainbow! 

Today we're sharing all that eye-searing, highlighter goodness with you!  So grab your shades, flip on that blacklight and enjoy!

Fun Fall Treats!

"Autumn is a second Spring where every leaf is a flower." -- Albert Camus

September is halfway through and the bakery is filled with Fall flavors and colors.  Leaves of rust, burgundy, and gold are falling over the samples trays, and boughs of sunflowers and berries adorn the windows.  Fall is definitely in the air as the scent of warm Rustic Apple Tarts mixes with fresh Pear and Cranberry Galettes.  This morning we debuted our new seasonal cake flavor: Caramel Apple! Our light Vanilla Chiffon Cake accented with a drizzle of fresh caramel, and paired with our creamy caramel mousse and freshly sliced apples.  To quote one Dessert Works employee, "It's like autumn in your mouth!"

With all the delicious tastes that fall and Dessert Works have to offer, why not come and experience fall both for yourself and for your mouth!

Florentine Ivy and Picasso Lilies

Julie and Nick's wedding reception in a Botanical Center begged for a floral/ivy/botanically-inspired wedding cake!

Frosted in our vanilla buttercream, this couple opted for Dessert Works' "Florentine Ivy" design in a soft sage green.  Though ivy-inspired, this design also incorporates flourishes like a waving scroll, and dots that create even further embellishment.

On the middle tier, Dessert Works applied the same design, only much more conservatively.  The stretches of smooth buttercream and open space on this tier created a nice contrast to the top and bottom tiers.

The cake was further decorated with fresh flowers in deep fuchsias and plums -- Picasso Lilies and orchids.  Beautiful!  The floating candles provide an air of romance, delicately accenting the cake.

Shamrocks and Hearts

Jennifer and David may have added some luck to their wedding celebration with their incorporation of our "Shamrocks and Hearts" design on their cake!

Their cake was frosted in soft, smooth vanilla buttercream, with tiers of our Shamrocks design alternating with Kristen's signature "Champagne Dot" pattern (meant to look like champagne bubbles floating up to the top of the tier).

Dessert Works kept the shoulders of the cake clean, adding a floral bouquet of white roses to the top of the cake only.  And for a touch of green - the leaves on the roses provided the perfect accent.
