Inspiration Lounge Grand Opening

I know it's been a while since I last posted. A few weeks ago, the Inspiration Lounge had their grand opening. It was an awesome night full of amazing vendors. These are some pics of my cake and minis taken by Kym of Ventola Photography. She is an amazing photographer and was kind enough to let me borrow her adorable models for some great pictures. Check out her website and blog at ventolaphotography.com

So I got an invite last week to a potluck dinner for the Association of Bridal Consultants. I was really excited to participate because there would be a lot of great people to meet. I talked to a lot of great planners, photographers, photo booth vendors, etc. My favorite part was talking to all the great cake "ladies." They gave such great advice and their goodies were sooo good. These are pics of my spread. New cakes! Professional pics coming soon, hopefully on a new website!

Grandpa's Birthday

My hubby's grandpa just turned...yep you guessed it. 90!!!!!We had a fun birthday party for him. The food table was decorated in red, white, and blue, to celbrate his service in the military and his patriotism. He loved every minute of it. Top layer was carrot with cream cheese frosting and the bottom was a white cake with strawberry filling.

Michelle and Neil

I met Michelle when I was doing my student teaching. She got married recently and I was asked to do her cake. I was so excited. Michelle is such a nice person and I was more than happy to help her out. The cake was done in ivory and white with royal icing "lace" and buttons going up the back to imitate her gorgeous dress. The top was red velvet and the bottom was white with a simple buttercream filling.

My first Inspirador Wedding

I met these great clients at an open house at Inspirador. I loved them because they know exactly what they wanted and it was awesome to work with them. The top layer of the cake is a lemon cake with vanilla buttercream filling and the bottom layer is a traditional wedding cake with a strawberry preserve filling. They wanted to offer a lot of choices for their guests so they also wanted carrot and chocolate cupcakes. All covered in buttercream (cream cheese for the carrot) and covered in a pillow of fondant. Everything was made from scratch and tasted super yummy. What a fun wedding!

Once again, my friend Callie referred me to a great person. I had a lot of fun with this cake. They wanted a fun crown for their friends big birthday party. It was a milk chocolate cake with rasberry preserve and buttercream filling. Hope you like. Sorry about the lame pics. They don't do it justice.

Waaaaay Better Pics!

Inspirador Open House

Ok. So tonight I did my first open house with Inspirador and it was so much fun. I had to come right home and post it so everyone can see how great this place is. It was so fun to meet with the great couples there and see some familiar vendors I met at the bridal expo. The first couple of pics with the blue background are shots of my display shelf in the Inspiration Lounge. Click on the pictures to see the details better.This is the cake I made for the open house. The theme was desert nights with a lot of blue and orange and teal. I did a dessert spread as well (which are becoming very popular for the bride who wants to give their guests a lot of variety) These cake bites were milk chocolate with peanut butter frosting and red velvet with cream cheese frosting.People had already started to nibble when I took this picture.The cool table at the entrance filled with gorgeous incense. The original fireplace in the courtyard. GORGEOUS!!!This courtyard is great for outdoor ceremonies or as a cocktail party space. Click on the picture and see the gorgeous grass covered wall.The ceremony room. The wall is covered in candles and the walk way is beautified with pretty poetry and loving phrases.The Bridal room.The Tryst art gallery... Awesome for an anniversary or cocktail party.Sorry about the blur, but this is the Inspiration Lounge from outside. See my cake?!?

Some More Fun Cakes

My father-in-law asked me to make a cake for my sister-in-laws birthday. I wanted to just because it was Taryn, but I also have been wanting to try some new things.

The first cake is a super moist carrot cake with cream cheese filling and a swiss meringue butter cream frosting. I had never made this type of icing before and I ended up absolutely loving it. The cream cheese filling was a new recipe too. The other cake, the more funky one was for Taryn. She wanted a chocolate fudge cake with cream cheese as well. It is covered in a thin layer of typical butter cream and in fondant. Hope you like!

Totally Forgot to Mention Very Important Things

OK... So the expo got us great exposure. We have alot a lot of great weddings booked and I am so excited to work with these fun brides. Can't wait to show you all the cakes we have designed. Anyways, the expo gave us a huge jumpstart. I just wanted to fill you in with whats going on with Baked Bliss. First of all, we are going to be getting an awesome website to go along with the blog. We are going to be doing a professional photo shoot in August for my cakes. So excited Nikki! It will be very vintage modern. I love it!!!! Also, we will be joining the Inspiration Lounge at Inspirador in Historic Chandler. Its a beautiful venue and we should get lots of business. We are very eager to work with the creative women there. Here are a few websites you can look at to see where we are headed.

sweetandsaucyshop.com (This is kind of the style and look we are going for. Her cakes are the kind we are designing right now for future events. Way cool stuff!)

Hello Again!!

We have quite a few cakes coming up. Can't wait to show everyone what we have been working on. A lot of them will look very similar. I have been trying to focus on one thing and do it several times for practice. I have had a couple small parties and we have done small square cakes for all of them. These pics are from My Cousin Amaile's wedding. Very cool colors! We will also have some cakes for a birthday party tonight. I will post them soon.

The black cakes were a rich fudge cake with buttercream filling and the white cakes were a simple and sweet white cake with buttercream filling and they were all covered in rolled fondant.

Congrat Amalie!
