When ‘Not’ Matching is Just Right
Posted in Bouquets, Cakes, Decorations, Groom and Groomsmen on 12 January 2009

Here’s a great example of where the floral colors of a wedding are not all from the same color theme. The flowers and styling of the event are by the very talented Beehive Events and the photography is by Jen Fariello. Check out their album, they do a fantastic job, especially with ‘green’ colored themes. (perfect for me because I’m looking to use that in my own wedding :P)

The bride’s bouquet & the groom’s boutonierre are black and purple, whilst the bridesmaids in pink bridesmaid dresses carried bouquets of green, pink, and red. However, the reception florals were similar to the bridesmaids’ bouquets and it just all seems to work. I guess every bride’s obsession with matching to a particular color scheme isn’t always necessary!

PS: Can anyone tell me what those little green ‘pea-like’ balls are in the bouquets and around the cake? I just can’t figure it out.

Tiffany’s Blue ‘Bride Wars’ Reception
Posted in Cakes, Food and Drinks on 7 January 2009

How better to get ideas on your Tiffany themed wedding than from the company itself? Following a screening of the movie Bride Wars at the AMC Lincoln Square, over 200 guests headed to Tiffany & Company’s Fifth Avenue flagship store in New York for a reception full of all things ‘blue.’

These are so cute, I would never want to eat them! These tiny cakes or cupcakes in Tiffany’s blue were served on silver platters.

Blue drinks were served to guests. But if you’re wondering how they made it, you’ll have to keep wondering. Tiffany’s isn’t telling.

I know there been a lot of hype about the new movie, and I know I’ve been part of it. Sorry! I’ll be watching it this Saturday with a bunch of girls and I hope I won’t be disappointed!

A ’sweet’ cake
Posted in Cakes on 22 December 2008

Here’s one way to display your cake on your candy/dessert table. Cover the layers of your cake with candy and top it off with a dish made of barley candy. It makes for a very ‘sweet‘ cake.

$50,000 Wedding Cake!
Posted in Cakes on 25 November 2008


So this is what a $50,000 can buy you - a 10 tiered, 100 pound, 40 layered chocolate cake covered in white icing.

Pro golfer Billy Mayfair and former ASU golfer Tami Proctorwere lucky enough to do just that. The cake was so large, it needed a 55 x 55 inch wooden baseboard with steel legs, complete with a hole in the middle for the electrical cords for the LED lights.

And just when you think the couple might be absolutely insane, there might actually be a reason for the cake’s size - Mayfair wanted the cake to be symbolic of his surviving testicular cancer.

Yay for that! But what happens to the rest of the cake if there were only 300 guests? Hope they have a large freezer.

These pretty little cakes are just adorable. If you’re lucky enough to be in hong kong, you can get them from maki’s cakes. But I’m sure if you show these to a baker in your area, you can similar treats!
