Shawna’s Vintage Hockey Book

Shawna contacted us with a request that really made us think. She’s a librarian, and was planning on incorporating books into her wedding decor. She was also going for a vintage feel, decorating with autumn colours and leaves. She also mentioned that her fiance, Ryan, loves hockey. She asked us if it was possible to incorporate all of those aspects into one small cake for them to cut and 120 cupcakes… Sure, it’s possible! 😉

Using our previous Antique Books cake as a starting point, we thought about maybe a vintage hockey themed book. After searching the web, we found a book entitled “For The Love of Hockey” and thought that having the hockey theme including the word “Love” was fitting for a wedding. To incorporate the vintage feel, we would make the book look antique using petal dust. That last request, autumn leaves- well, we took care of that by scattering a few gum paste leaves over the book and decorating about a quarter of her cupcakes with them.

Shawna was very excited about all of these details and also added a few of her own. We changed the title of the book to “For Love Of Hockey” and added the couple’s names as the authors. We also added a pair of crossed hockey sticks and a puck to the front cover, and a puck with a heart inside of it to the spine.

The cake was Decadent Chocolate filled with Chocolate buttercream and the cupcakes were a mix- Decadent Chocolate with Chocolate, Vanilla Bean Pound with Vanilla Bean buttercream, and Almond Chocolate Marble with Almond buttercream, to please all of the wedding guests.

This cake, with all of the special touches, definitely reflected the bride and groom and the things they love. We love to create cakes that have that personal touch. 🙂

Congratulations, Ryan & Shawna!

We received this email a few weeks after the wedding:

I just wanted to let you know that we absolutely LOVED the cake. Both Ryan and I were amazed at how well it turned out, and how beautiful the cupcakes were! They were also delicious- I’m glad we ordered extra because they were all gone! We had a lot of people try to sign the cake because they thought it was the guest book! 😀 I was absolutely thrilled with it. Thank you so much for everything, it really added to the look and feel of the whole reception.

Thanks again!

Shawna

 

Tiffany’s Antique Lace

Tiffany and Ian came to us with a special request- to incorporate the design from antique lace that had been in Ian’s family for many years onto their wedding cake. They requested that the cake be ivory, which definitely added to the antique lace design. The lace was absolutely beautiful, and included one large flower that had raised petals. Stunning work, which we then portrayed with royal icing onto the 4 tier wedding cake. The base of each tier was piped with double beads of royal icing, really adding to the elegance of the cake, yet keeping it simple in nature.

The entire cake was Decadent Chocolate cake with Vanilla Bean buttercream, our most popular flavour combination. Delicious!

Congratulations, Tiffany & Ian! 🙂

We received this note from Tiffany after the wedding:

It was a dream come true wedding. Thank you so much for the wonderful wedding cake. It was sooo delicious!

 

Esther’s Lace & Cupcakes

Esther contacted us knowing she wanted a small top tier and cupcakes for her wedding. She showed us a picture of the design she liked, which was white on white lace piping. The intricate design turned out beautifully!

She complimented the top tier with cupcakes, half of which were Decadent Chocolate with Vanilla Bean buttercream, the other half Vanilla Bean pound cake with Chocolate buttercream.

Congratulations, Esther & Mitch! 🙂

Ceara’s Autumn Leaves

Ceara and Demetry came for their consultation and Ceara mentioned that of all the wedding cakes they had looked at, the only one that really caught Demetry’s eye was Shanna’s Fall Leaves. A few changes were made to that design, such as having a chocolate coloured ribbon and going down to three tiers. We also added oak leaves and acorns along with the maple leaves.

They chose Decadent Chocolate cake with Vanilla Bean buttercream and Salted Caramel. Delicious!

Congratulations, Ceara & Demetry!
