Wedding Cake Season

Every year we have the pleasure of being part of some wedding shows such as the Festival of Brides. They give us an opportunity to meet with new vendors and brides, but  it also means cake! LOTS AND LOTS OF CAKE, for me any how. Mendy gets her creative juices flowing for her new designs for each show and I just have to get a haircut (sometimes). In reference to the picture above-its just a small sample of the samples Mendy makes for the shows.
The shows allow brides to taste our wedding cake and also see the fantastic designs Mendy is capable of. Brides will come from all over with there list of vendors to target so they can ease the stress of preparing for there wedding day. I think it also gets the grooms off the hook since most of the people attending are the brides, but they show up with there friends and not there fiance'.
In preparation for the show is very hard work but we are paid back in ten fold with all the new people we meet.
There are stands to build and dishes to wash.
Thank you for visiting

That Morning Show

Now a days there are so many "cake" shows-everybody has some kind of idea, but they want to see some kind of drama-the only drama we have is me driving the car when I have to deliver a cake. 
Well we got a call from a production company about doing a segment on their show, "That Morning Show". At first we were somewhat hesitant but I convinced Mendy it would be fun, especially since I had no plans of taking part. lol 
After speaking to them we realized the episode was just a story about kids cake trends.
We know trends, at least what our clients are asking for-custom one of a kind cakes. After going through our orders we found one we thought would be good for their show. A mother (Beatriz Amano) wanted to surprise her 8 year old daughter (Olivia Amano) for her birthday. Her surprise was to have Mendy recreate a cake her daughter drew/designed. We decided that we would surprise her here at the shop with her cake and a camera crew! We thought she might be a little camera shy, but boy we were wrong-total ham! 

The plan: Mrs. Amano and Olivia would come to our shop to pick up a cake for their "friend", Mendy would surprise her with a edible recreation of her very special birthday cake. The crew would capture all of this on video and then interview her. 
Olivia was surprised and we were happy to be part of her wonderful birthday surprise that was captured on video. I hope the segment came out great!
