I love to collaborate with couples designing unique cakes reflecting their individual style. All my baking is completely from scratch using high quality ingredients and imported Chocolate couvertures. Most of are iced with Swiss meringue buttercream (all butter), unless completely naked. Fondant icing or pliable white chocolate may by applied over this. I can also use Chocolate Ganache or Marzipan. Depending on the season, location and venue, some mediums might be better suited than others, or the cake may not be on displayable for the entire reception.
Floral embellishments can be made of gum paste, white chocolate, rice paper, and yes, nature’s best, fresh and natural. Edible metallic and gold leaf are other options for design.
