Wedding Cakes

Brides have been requesting black and white wedding cakes at a record pace. For many years I resisted decorating with black on wedding cakes.

I still get nervous each time we start to decorate with black. But.....I have come to realize just how beautiful these cakes can be.


180 servings of bridal white cakes covered with buttercream, black fondant bands, black buttercream designs and sugar pearls painted with edible pearl dust. We added red rose bouquets to the top and sides to complete the cake


250 servings covered in white buttercream with black fondant and edible silver accents. All accent pieces are hand cut, molded, draped and painted.
