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.

See our workshop page for our next class schedule.
