Fleshy Succulents

I love succulents and I am a big fan of any bride that wants to use them in her wedding because it looks so modern, unexpected, and elegant.  I especially love rose succulents because of their obvious resemblance to its namesake, a rose.  It's kind of spiky, angular, and geometrical.  A perfect, modern 'flower'

Fall Colors!

It's September and I can't shake the feeling that Fall is coming, even though it's still blistering hot in California.  Michael's has rolled out their fall leaf garlands and set up their Halloween displays complete with skeletons and potion bottles.  So it's no surprise that customers have started to ask for flowers and leaves in rich coppers, rust, dark chocolate and pumpkin.  Enjoy!

Lamborghini Toppers

Loved this idea from a customer who requested this.  I printed the logos on frosting sheets and then painted over them with gold.  The checkered flag patterns were built on a thin sheet of fondant and then stamped out into rounds.  Love it, love it.

Fuchsia and Tangerine

Lovely and beautiful colors for a summer wedding!! I thought of doing purely orange and pink in flowers but then changed my mind and decided to throw in a hint of lime green to really balance the colors.
