About

Featured in Style Me Pretty and Brides.com, the “bling cake” that started the trend! One of our favorite cakes, this petite creation for a couple’s wedding at The Viceroy in Santa Monica, has become one our most inquired about cakes. People write to us from all over the world wanting to know where we sourced the gorgeous rhinestone decoration. The answer is from the bride! During our tasting and design consultation, the bride, a huge fan of antique markets, turned out a box full of vintage appliques, trim, brooches and jewelery and said, “Is there any way we can use these in the cake design?” After I picked my jaw up off of the floor, I got to sketching. We came up with the most hip and elegant way to showcase the gems. Perching the cake on a custom silver candle holder so that the teardrops could hang freely below the cake is one of my favorite details.
