Real Weddings: Cara & Shaun

Real Weddings: Steven & Leora

I’ll admit, I have a tendency to fall in love with my clients. Although I might be a bit of a marriage cynic in my own life, I somehow become completely entrenched into the love stories of everyone else.

Steven and Leora were no exception. There was something about them that captivated me from the start and I was thrilled when they asked me to design the cake for their wedding.

By the way, Steven owns an incredible entertainment production company. Click here for more info: MK Productions.

Growing in popularity are individually packaged mini cakes. I absolutely LOVE the idea of having a replica of your wedding cake given to all the guests as the main dessert or party favour because they become the WOW element for any event.

I've said it before, but mini cakes are like backward Oreo cookies. The idea and the final designs are spectacular, but assembling them... not so much. After covering these 200 mini cakes with fondant, I was just thankful to have 24 hour access to the hands of my physiotherapist sister.
