While creating our new book, I suddenly recognized a recurring theme in our work that I was not conscious of before: cakes!
A food for thought revelation- our events are filled with an abundance of gorgeous cakes of all sizes and textures, ‘cakes’ made from a variety of unconventional materials like flowers or wood, to real edible cakes that transform into surprising sculptural moments. Cakes and parties go hand in hand since parties have been fun, but our delightful cakes are perfectly garnished with our business approach: wherever there is a party convention, why not break the mold? (wink)
In true Alice in Wonderland spirit, flowers were seen where they would be least expected: in surprising pop-up formations as “edible” items! (above)
Tongue in groove, cakes of raw wood were built with whimsy to enhance an editor’s preview of a fall home line of product. (above)
Even though it’s not a cake, per se, wooden pies, are still pretty cool, right?! (above)
A boisterous birthday to-do with candy-colored…well, everything, including a multi-layered and striped ‘wooden’ birthday cake! (above)
2D meets 3D in this over-ripe world of pink where turn of the century engravings are enlarged to life size and mixed with three dimensional flowers and fruits to create a fun optical illusion. (above)
The incredible Confetti Cakes collaborated with us on this edible sculpture. What better way to mirror Maine in Manhattan than with a red lobster cake propped on a brown sugar sandbox of beach toys? (above)
Our wonderful friends at The Cake Studio hailed down this 200 pound taxi cake; the perfect addition to a New York City themed celebration. (above)
Whoever said you can’t have your cake and eat it too? Not only do I personally love to make the cakes for our events fun and unexpected, I am also drawn to cool cakes made by others as well! If you’ve got a ‘sweet tooth’ too, below you’ll find work that I find rather addicting.
Inspired from the eye and mind candy of Robert The, I love this cake slice of a book frosted with real icing. (above)
A true pastry genius, Caitlin Freeman, creates cakes that emulate art in a delicious and cheeky fashion: she reinterprets the esteemed work of inspirational artists and imagines what their art would look and taste like in a decadent confection. The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art’s café sells these confections. Check out her take on Wayne Thiebaud’s Display Cakes. Simply and utterly scrumptious right? And the Mondrian Cake? WOW!
Let us know what you think of our cakes, inspirations, and other cool stuff in our new book!Your feedback is important to us ladies and gents, it’s the icing on our cake(s)! (wink)
