I have been collaborating with some local businesses and this weekend we are putting together two dessert tables for a photo shoot. This is one of the cakes that I will be using. This is my first attempt at a ruffle cake and I am pleased with the finished product. I found a tutorial on You Tube by searching for "ruffle cake tutorial" and it was so easy to execute! I used a 124 petal tip but you could probably use any size petal tip that you may already have.
I will post more pictures soon of the display cakes, cupcakes and cake pops that I will be making so stay tuned!

I have the opportunity to work with two fabulous ladies for a vintage inspired photo shoot in a couple of weeks. Yuriko from Vintage Origami and Sarah from Sarah's Sweets, they are both located in Kelowna, BC. I wanted to try out some ideas and this is what I came up with!

On January 8, 2012 I did my very first bridal expo. To tell you the truth I didn't really know what I was getting myself into but it turned out to be a fabulous day! It took lots of hard work and a ton of help from family but I managed to put together over 700 samples, 3 display cakes, cupcakes and cake pops. I am already looking forward to next year :)

This coming weekend I am doing my very first bridal expo (yikes!). This means that before this weekend I will have to bake 700 mini cupcakes for potential clients to sample, make three display wedding cakes, make display cupcakes and a display of cake pops. In addition to these I will have a frame with nine different pictures of cakes and cupcakes to give customers an idea of what kind of work I can do. I didn't have many great cupcake pictures on hand so today I made a few different kinds that I thought would work great for a wedding. I will display some of these pictures at my booth and hope to impress the brides and grooms. Thanks for looking!
