You're wearing a gorgeous ring, the dress has been bought, venue booked, the planner has her list and now the crowning glory... your wedding cake!

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.

Bruna's quick eye for styling makes all the sweets come together perfectly.

See our workshop page for our next class schedule. A huge thanks to Adrienne, who hosted us in her gorgeous kitchen and to Sarah from Photography by SSV for taking these lovely shots. … [Read more...]
