Bicycle Wedding

 We love it when customers personalize their wedding cakes - it really makes their cake so unique.  Today we'd like to feature a beautiful wedding cake we did for Jeanette and Chris this summer.  These two bicycling enthusiasts wanted to incorporate tandem bicycles into their wedding cake, and it turned out beautifully!  
Congratulations Jeanette and Chris!

Hello all you Dessert Works fans! We hope you had a sweet and relaxing Thanksgiving. Before we transition into Christmas information we wanted to share with you one of our favorite cakes to leave our bakery. Recently we had a bride order a groom's cake for her soon-to-be husband, and she requested an edible version of his dog. Making edible versions of pets happens often at Dessert Works, but we were not expecting this dog to be quite so cute. I in particular, was taken aback by how adorable he is, and any time I am feeling a bit down I look at the picture of this cutie-pie and my day brightens. The owners of my new favorite dog, were even kind enough to bring him by so we could meet in person!  So take a look at Winston, the cutest dog ever!!! (Pictures of real Winston provided for us by his owner.)

Looks good enough to eat!

In the spirit of Thanksgiving and the dazzling array of good foods that it brings, this week we'd like to feature a few cakes that look too savory to be sweet!
First off here's a summer-inspired picnic basket: fried chicken, potato salad, and watermelon.  Yum!

This cake always makes my mouth water!  Sizzling Kebabs and Hamburgers on the grill - oh Lordy!

How about a GIANT Hamburger?  This cake measured 10 x 10" in real life.  Now that's a lot of deliciousness!

Quick!  Grab your chopsticks, find the wasabi and soy sauce, it's time for some Sushi!  

Hope this whet your appetite a little bit for next week!  Remember to place your Thanksgiving orders by this Sunday November 20th to ensure availability!

Love Birds Wedding

Today we'd like to feature a custom Dairy Free wedding cake we did for Kristen and Keith Mathieu earlier this year.  Kristen and Keith met in 2005 at the University of Rhode Island.  As a couple, one of their favorite hobbies is bird watching from their back porch.  When it came time to plan their wedding, "Love Birds" was a natural choice.  Here it is: a beautiful cake to complement a beautiful couple.  Congratulations Kristen and Keith!
