This past weekend was a fun one for sure! It takes a special kind of bride to get married on a date with sequential numbers.....( the type of bride who wants to make it REALLY easy to make sure her husband never forgets their anniversary)! In addition to the choice of wedding date, another thing these brides have in common is their flair in cake design. These lovely brides wanted wedding cakes that were elegant and beautiful, while having a fun side or a touch of charm.

Bridget and Paul- Shell Hall

Paul is a friend I've known since my sophomore year of high school. It was such an honor to create his wedding cake! Bridget, his lovely WIFE (official as of yesterday), has such a lovely design style. Elegant yet fun was the theme of the wedding reception and that translated into a lovely cake design! Congrats Bridget and Paul and blessings for a lifetime!

Susan and Paul - Port Royal Golf Club

Susan and Paul are a wonderful couple! Susan's wedding cake was the perfect mix of whimsy and elegance. 4 tiers and beautiful in stature, this wedding cake was wrapped in individual fondant strips with a swag-like effect and accented with pearlized sugar starfish and turquoise curly cues. A brown sugar E finished the cake at the top.

Susan also surprised Paul with a football helmet grooms cake. Paul loves the WV Mountaineers and even has a WV football helmet on his fireplace mantle. Susan, a true UGA fan at heart, just couldn't pass up the opportunity to rouse Paul a little with an ode to her GA Dawgs. This football helmet grooms cake is double sided. At first glance, it appears to be a WV helmet, but turn it around and it's UGA all the way!! So fun!

Priscilla and Scott- River House Ballroom at The Inn at Palmetto Bluff

Priscilla and Scott have such a true southern-vintage flair and it was the inspiration for every part of their wedding reception. From the brides gown to the centerpieces, this wedding was fairytale. So it's no surprise Priscilla chose a stunning 4 tier cake finished in a dark white (yes, there is a shade of 'dark' white) butter cream with an alabaster band at the base of each tier and an astounding 65 ivory sugar roses. I LOVE this cake and I hope they did, too!!

Jacquelyn and Luke- Vic's on the River- Savannah, GA

Jacque is such a unique and wonderful person! She has such a great sense of style! Her wedding cake was a beautiful 3 tier cake finished in white butter cream with a pearlized band climbing half way up each tier. White filigree piping accented the band and a small band of pearls trimmed the look at the top of the decor. A live hydrangea was used as the topper.

Jacque also happens to be my son Nathan's art teacher at the elementary school he attends. He assisted me on this delivery so that Jacque (the former Miss Biersach to him) can see that he helped!

Congrats Jacque! We wish you the very best!!

'Themed' Cakes

Clients often ask me "Does my cake necessarily NEED to have a theme?" or " Would it be possible to create something with a _________ (insert idea here) theme?"

The answer is no....and yes. Whether your event has a designated theme or is just simply elegant, your cake design can be whatever you desire.

Here are some examples from the last few weeks where clients have opted to go the themed route-

Beach theme cake with Celebration Events at Windows on the Waterway

USC Gamecocks themed rehearsal dinner and grooms cake at Windows on the Waterway

The one and only Cocky, the USC mascot, made a special trip to attend this celebration! He loves cake!

Turtle themed cake for a sweet little boy's birthday party

And this beautiful wedding cake for Cassie and Spencer transcends any 'theme' by being simply classic and elegant while using different textures and patterns to achieve a design uniquely their own.

Stay tuned for more amazing cake photos coming this weekend!!

Summer Cakes- 2011

This is my first blog post in a little over a month. Rather than blogging cake photos each week, I decided to try a new approach by posting photos of cakes to my Facebook Fan Page. However, I miss blogging, especially on behalf of my clients who are anxious for their cakes to make the blog!

So, here goes! These are a some of my favorites from this summer!

Bright Celebrations!

This week I had the pleasure of creating wedding cakes and celebration cakes for some of the most colorful clients. Their personalities are larger than life, and so were their celebrations!

Kristen wanted a wedding cake that depicted the time she and her fiance lived in Hawaii. After spending 3 years on the big island, they developed a love for whale watching, kayaking, sea turtles, surfing and spam musabi. What is that you ask? It is spam, made sushi style. A lovely filet of spam (iiick), lays on a pad of sticky rice and is wrapped in a strip of sea weed. Yum......

Their cake featured colorful butter cream beginning with a vibrant green and fading into shades of oranges and yellows. Custom sugar pieces of their favorite things decorated the cake. I know they loved this cake as I got many thumbs up from wedding guests who were beginning to arrive in waiting for the festivities to begin as I was exiting the beautiful Hampton Lake reception venue.

Stacy wanted a wedding cake with just as many pops of color as her wedding reception. Located at The Dunes House in Palmetto Dunes, Stacy's wedding reception was filled with many pops of light pink, hot pink and vibrant orange. From the hanging lanterns and pomanders, to the brightly striped pink and orange lollipop favors, this wedding was very striking! Stacy's wedding cake was a 3 tier cake finished in white butter cream with a light pink fondant band at the base of each tier and a cascade of handmade sugar Gerber Daisies in hot pink and vibrant orange.

James graduates! This cake was created to help James celebrate his graduation from high school. The Hilton Head High School Seahawk celebrated with this grad cap cake. Congratulations James!

Thanks for looking!
