I have for a long time.. I mean a looooonnngg time been telling you about the beautiful work from Bruna of Simply Lace Photography.  When she asked me to have some fun for her mom's surprise party and gave me her colour scheme - I was hooked.  Not only does she have good taste, but she gives me free reign and then takes beautiful photographs of everything!?!??! What more could a little cake-artist ask for??? Oh right. She's sweet and lovely to work with =) So without further ado- here's how it all came together...

When Bruna from Simply Lace contacted us to create a very masculine but glamorous surprise Birthday sweet table, we couldn't wait to be a part of it! We created a 2 tier black and gold geometric cake based on a fun colourful design we found on pinterest and made it our own. Bottom tier was three layers of decadent chocolate cake with vanilla buttercream, and the top tier a very vanilla bean cake with vanilla buttercream. The cupcakes and cookies complimented the theme with our man of the hour's monogram in an antique gold on top of mounds of creamy buttercream and sugar cookies. Bruna's quick eye for styling makes all the sweets come together perfectly. Check out Bruna's page to see the whole album and all the delightful details she captured along with this beautiful family as they celebrate a loved one.        … [Read more...]
