An Elegant Cake for 350

 
No back up sheet cake for this couple. This is what a cake for 350 looks like. We used rhinestone bands, broaches and silver pearls to achieve the bling for the cake.

 
 

A Painted Cake



Although people seek me out for my piping techniques, I do get requests for cakes with painted on designs. I loved how this one came out.
This cake was iced in buttercream and layered with a painted San Francisco cityscape and hand painted Victorian houses made of fondant.

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.
