What a November!!!

This November has been a whirlwind. We opened our second location, The White Flower Sweet Shoppe at Beachwood Mall where we sell all of our yummy retail items-cupcakes, brownies, cakes and cookies.
We participated in The Fabulous Food Show at the IX center where we had a booth and sold all of our goodies, taught mini decorating classes, and did a few chocolate stage demos.
Today we held a cake tasting event at our shoppe, and it went fabulous! Thank you Arne from Plantscaping for your amazing centerpieces, Angela and Kim from L'Nique for the gorgeous linens, and Event source for the cocktail tables. And a special thanks to all of our customers and engaged couples who came out today to taste some cake!
We also are planning on going back for a few more challenges for the Food Network in January-possibly a Toy Story challenge, and a Sex and the City challenge are in the works!

Food Network Horror Cakes Challenge

Well, we had a blast! This episode that aired this evening was filmed last December, and it was really exciting to see it all come together. Yes, our cake was colorful, maybe a touch too whimsical for the judges taste, but how many scary movies are based on unassuming  things? Dolls, clowns, those are all really freaky...why not flesh eating pastry????It could happen. next time you are enjoying your favorite muffin, brownie or cupcake, make sure your careful....very careful.....

October cakes so far...

This month we have had quite a variety of cakes-from whimsical wedding cakes to over the top sweet sixteen cakes....and my favorite-a wedding dress replica cake. Fall colors are my personal favorite, and I love gold accents....It is such a beautiful time of year, and October is our busiest wedding month so far.

At the end of the month, we are looking forward to our 3rd Food Network Challenge-Horror cakes debut on October 25.  This was our favorite cake we have ever made, so be sure to watch!
This weekend we will be at The Today's Bride Bridal show this sunday October 11 at The Embassy Suites in Independence. Be sure to stop by for a tasty sample of our wedding cake.
We are also getting excited for The Fabulous Food Show at the IX this year in November. We will have a booth this year, and also be giving some demos on the Chocolate Bar Stage. be sure to stop by and visit our booth- we will be selling cupcakes, cakes and brownies.

Red Hot cupcakes and some amazing detail work...

Cupcake weddings are very popular this year. This cupcake wedding cake we set up at House of Blues was very creative and fit the venue perfectly.
The Mosaic cake is a piece of art-Lauren details it with an edible luster paint that makes it look shiny and have a subtle sparkle to the surface.

More September wedding cakes....

We love being in this business for many reasons, but the main reason is that every cake we design for our couples is so uniquely different! The month of september has certainly been filled with so many different styles of cake designs, and  we love our clients for having such diverse taste-Even flavors of wedding cakes are becoming more creative and less about the traditional white wedding cake. Spice cake filled with Cinnamon Dolce flavored buttercream, Pistachio cake filled with vanilla creme,  and Orange creamsicle cake layered with Grand Marnier and Chocolate Ganache are a few delicious flavors we have been working with lately.

September wedding cakes

Such a variety of designs for our early september weddings! 
Vintage chic designs, exotic nature inspirations(including hand sculpted/hand painted butterflies and birds of paradise), A cake with inspiration form an heirloom pizzelle maker, and a navy and butter yellow cake with designs inspired from amazing  invitations....these cakes were some of our most memorable and artistic. All of these cakes feature sugar flowers, and were custom designed for each couple with a series of sketches.

More Groovy cakes in August....

Sculpted sugar flowers are very popular with our brides-they can be taken off of the wedding cake and be preserved as a keepsake. Some of the sculpted flowers featured in these cakes are roses, gardenias, hydrangeas, tulips, orchids and peonies.

What a Weekend!15 footer train, Food Network Party and Debut!

 This was quite a week for us at The White Flower Cake Shoppe. A few all-nighters to create a magnificent train cake, a party at our shop on Sunday that made us feel the love from our customers, and ending the night with watching The Food Network Challenge at Aunt Deb's house with family and friends made us feel spectacular! Thank you to everyone who came out sunday to support us, and we hope that the cupcakes didn't stain your mouths too blue!

The train cake below was a project of epic proportions. A customer ordered this special train cake for his mothers 90th birthday celebration sunday at Landerhaven. I have to say this is one of our best and most special creations we have ever made. Lauren and Matt worked hours and hours on all of the detail that went into this cake. Each box car represented a decade of Lil's life-From the time of her childhood when she picked grapes, to her motherhood years of raising her kids, groovy times in the sixties, and  of course all the 85 photos of her friends that were cut out and placed in the windows. Everything was completely edible, and hand painted by Lauren and Matt. 
To see more detailed photos, go to our friend Rob's website and see his amazing pics-Thanks for coming out sunday Rob and documenting this special cake for us!

On a side note, we are going back to do another cake challenge at the end of August-this time, Lauren will bravely go by herself, and have a mystery client and mystery assistant for the show. Make sure you stop in and wish her luck!

Groovy cakes, Asian inspired mini cakes and petit fours, and a million dollar bill....

June has been quite a month! Some of our favorite cakes from the month so far include these mini cakes and petit fours for a wedding at The Botanical Gardens this past weekend designed with an asian flare. Congratulations Lisa and Jim and thanks for letting me have creative freedom with your desserts!
 This is our first Million Dollar Bill!!! Matt spent quite a few hours hand painting this portrait with edible food coloring....

The cake on the bottom left was designed for our favorite Cintas guy, Steve and his new wife Meghan. We love this couple and couldn't be happier for them-Congrats!

The dessert tower on the right is one of my favorite looks for a wedding. I  think it is so visually interesting to display mini desserts for your guests to choose from.

The butterflies and orchids are all handsculpted, and the sundial topper is inspired by the actual sundial featured in the gardens.It is located in their main hallway, so stop in and check it out!
