Oh how fabulous! Pearls and pink satin...every girly-girl's dream! We treated these bridal gown cookies as if they were real wedding dresses. Scroll down, you'll see. It's almost as if they're hanging in little tiny garment bags :-)
Kerri's bachelorette cookies needed to be extra special, so we designed an extremely glam and girly set using her wedding colors of pink and navy with silver accents. And I must say, I just LOVE how they turned out!!
When a super-awesome, chuck-taylor-wearing photographer needs a sweet favor as part of her rebranding strategy, We. Go. All. Out!! Not only did we create a few dozen logo cookies, but we designed and created some oh-my-goodness-they-are-too-cute-to-eat camera and chuck-taylor cookies to match. I love this fun and funky chick, and her photography skills rock. Check her out over at www.pinxit.photo.
I'm happiest when there is something sweet within reach! It's true. Something about sugar translates to happiness in my brain—not the best news for my hips, mind you, because who wants to just look at sweet treats?! Having a sliced-open cake in the studio was probably not the smartest move (considering it is January and those New Year resolutions are still in the forefront of my mind), however, I really wanted to show you what goes into a De la Creme cake slice. So I made a second cake just for you guys (*sigh) oh, the sacrifices I'm willing to make :-) Be sure to scroll to the end of this post to see what goes on under the fondant here at De la Creme. And bring on the dessert tables…the more sweet, delicious treats, the better!
So, what goes into a slice of De la Creme cake (other than sugar and spice and all things nice)? Well, since we pay just as much attention to what goes on under the fondant as we do to creating masterpieces that wow your guests at first glance, even our slices are beautiful in their own rights (and after taste-testing way beyond what was actually necessary I can assure you, they taste pretty darn good too). Whether ordering one of our standard cakes or splurging on a premium cake (like the Chocolate Raspberry Amaretto example below), you get four layers of cake and three layers of filling all nestled under a snug coat of buttercream and fondant...and a whole lot of happiness free of charge :-)
I always feel slightly guilty as I brutally stab up my block of Belgium chocolate...but cookies needed to be baked and eaten (Baileys Oatmeal Cookies to be precise...yum), so sacrifices had to be made! Bringing that smooth, creamy taste of Bailey's Irish cream into a cookie was very rewarding and it was a nice break from the normal routine of cakes, cupcakes and more cakes, and with the holiday approaching, it doesn't hurt to have a few treats around the house.
