Ghirardelli Chocolate Miniature San Francisco Skyline Display

Ghirardelli Chocolate delivered over a hundred pounds of chocolate to me this week to create this chocolate display for their Fancy Food Show after-party. I had to unwrap A LOT all of their iconic mini chocolate squares to create this San Francisco skyline. But it was worth it and so much fun. I should be on display for a while at the Market Place in Ghirardelli Square.

Dress inspired Wedding Cake- Olympic Club, San Francisco


I'm in love with this wedding cake from early October at the Olympic Club in San Francisco. This fondant covered cake was adorned with sugar flowers to resemble the lace and fabric flowers covering the brides dress. Dress details are always my favorite inspiration.

San Francisco Wedding Cakes Done in Buttercream with Hand Piping Details

This week was a scorcher in San Francisco, but all our cakes made it to their destinations and survived the heat. I'm going to give some credit to the best buttercream recipe around and some serious structure and support that goes on inside all the cakes. Here are just a few of my favorites demonstrating fun piping.

A Gold Ornament and White Lace Wedding Cake and a Tinga Tinga Art Inspired Wedding Cake


This 5 tier wedding cake travelled down to The Rancho Golf Club in San Jose for an elegant wedding coordinated by the wonderful Jimmy Vo of JVoWeddings.com. Adorned with gold filigrees, sugar roses, lace and strung pearls this cake was covered in pale pink fondant and had a little lift filled with ruffled sugar to look like fabric.
This wedding cake design was inspired from Tinga Tinga art. The birds were seen on the couple's place cards and invitations and the design was also inspired from textiles that the bride had collected in her travels abroad in Africa. I am always honored when my cakes are viewed at the De Young museum.
