Pink & Gold Photo Shoot

From time to time we get to produce cakes that are used in photoshoots that are put together by our fellow vendors. It’s a great and rewarding way we can all showcase our work!

This cake was inspired by the soft feminine pink spring feel of the shoot. To ensure a cake will hold up for a shoot – and not have wasted cake – we use what we call ‘dummy cakes’ or carved styrofoam that is the same size as a tier of cake. Once covered in fondant and decorated it is impossible to tell the difference (unless you pick it up or attempt cutting it).

Dummy cakes are not only excellent for doing bridal shows or photo shoots, but you can use a dummy tier to increase the size of  your cake – be it a birthday, graduation, anniversary or wedding – without needing to have a surplus of actual dessert cake.

It is always a special honor when we do wedding cakes for those who are serving or have served in our armed forces. This was our first wedding at the Air Force Memorial itself.It was a special surprise to see the groom join us as we were finishing a memorial photographer snap the picture!

The dessert items included a wedding cake with a cascading petal design and a dessert bar. The red, white and blue wedding colors were carried through out the sweets table.

The white wedding cake on the exterior actually had a dyed blue cake interior. The dessert bar included cake pops (red and blue colored, of course), two bite custard tarts with fresh berries, and champagne cake canapes with fresh blackberries.

One tip for setting up a dessert or buffet table – remember to keep the balance and height in perspective. Having your trays varying heights and shapes keeps the table from looking ‘flat’ or one demential. .
