Cala Lilie Wedding Cake!

This cake was done for a girlfriend of mine who got married on a gorgeous day in October. The sun was shining and warm for the wedding. You couldn't have asked for a better day!

This wedding cake is a 3 tiered cake w/ Deep Purple Cala Lilies.

Bottom layer is chocolate w/ chocolate ganache. Middle was vanilla cake with vanilla buttercream. The top layer was Vanilla cake w/ Cookies and cream. All covered in vanilla buttercream and white fondant. The cala lilies were made out of Fondant and dusted with dusting powder. They were such a unique color and a great fall color as well.

Back from a restful vacation!

My husband, myself and two of our friends decided to head to the Bahamas for a 4 day getaway. We stayed at the Riu Palace which is literally right beside the Atlantis. A great spot for a 4 day weekend getaway. The only downfall with the hotel is it's not child friendly. Lots of stuff for the adults to do but not for kids. Good thing this getaway was a couples getaway! It was a great vacation with a much needed break. We each missed the kids but we were glad we had the small break.

I'm hoping to have a few new posts this week but until then i'm still on vacation mode!

Have a great weekend!

Bakerella visited the Big T-O!

So on December 8th Bakerella made her grand entrance at the William Sonoma on Bloor Street West. A great turn out for her first visit to the Big City! I begged my sister to attend as i didn't really want to go alone. So i made my journey to the city for part of the day and met my sister downtown. We got their early enough that when we arrived at William's Sonoma we were told to go upstairs and grab a number.
