Cake for GZA

If you are familiar with the biggest rap group ever, Wu-Tang Clan, then you know GZA. GZA is currently on tour, and made a stop in Santa Cruz, where he was presented (on stage!) with a Cake Coquette birthday cake in the shape of his logo. This is especially exciting because this is the second time I have done a cake for GZA. He actually remembered me and requested another one of my cakes! My connection to this prolific rapper: my journalist husband, and Wu- Tang's biggest fan, has interviewed him several times and gets to sneak back (or on) stage to give him presents.

Faberge Cake at the Julia Morgan Ballroom






As some of you may know, I am absolutely in love with anything Faberge. I was so excited when I had a tasting with a Russian bride and her mom who were just as into a Faberge Cake Topper as I was. I have been thinking about this cake for months and was so inspired that I created a line of Faberge Egg Toppers. I'm submitting them to magazines, so just wait, they are really fun. I noticed that a lot of the Faberge eggs have portraits painted on them, so I decided to personalize Clarina and Patrick's topper with pictures of them and their dog. This means that everyone can have their own personalized Faberge Egg topper. I'm trying to start a trend, lets see if it catches on.


The groom was a policeman so we made him a cake in the shape of his badge.



Thanks to Natalie Wi of Allure West Studios who came with me to take pictures of the cake and me in action.

Cake Coquette is in Your Wedding Day Magazine





This is the most exciting press yet. I drove down to Los Angeles last March with two faux cakes for an incredible, high production value photo shoot. Five months later, I finally get to see how it all turned out. The magazine hit the stands a few days ago, and the 20 pages or so from the photo shoot look fantastic. My cake designs were used for the Hollywood Glamour and Vintage Bohemian sets.
What is even more exciting is that a cake I did for Michelle Barionuevo-Mazzini's bridal soiree, Promises and Pearls, also got featured. I recommend picking up this magazine which just went national with this edition. Enjoy!
