Here is a review about the Etiquette of Chocolate Experience by Peter and Arjola, a truly charming and beautiful couple whose wedding I had the great honor of creating the cake for, that was posted on Southern Weddings blog. This is the goal that I am always seeking all of my clients to have.
We were planning our wedding from Orlando, so Jaycel was willing to meet with us anytime. We met him for the first time on an early Sunday morning because that is all the time we had in Jacksonville. I was just shocked that any business would be willing to be open for us at that odd time. He put on a great tasting for us and truly was constantly conscious about our availability. We were captivated by this young, hard-working, and creative entrepreneur. We wanted a very simple cake, that's just who we are, and Jaycel really listened to what we wanted and sent us to appropriate websites to look to get ideas. He explained every step of the process and truly guided and listened to us as we made our decisions. We had our dream cake for our wedding! Not only was it beautifully done with refined artistry, but it was the best cake we have tasted. We have had so many of our guests and family members say that to us. We had the raspberry and champagne filling. We were not even planning on doing favors, and had even decided against them, but we were so happy with how we were treated and how budget conscious he was that we ended up ordering chocolates as favors and, also, we had guests say they were awesome!! I can tell you too, they are AWESOME!
A few weeks ago, I had the great chance to work with Agnes Lopez, one of Jacksonville's premier photographers, who recently was named an Editor's Pick by The Knot AND was included in Style Me Pretty's Little Black Book, both great honors and testament to her professionalism and talents.
In addition, I recently, have had the chance to work with Liza Chung, Editor of Jacksonville Luxury Living Wedding and Event Style Magazine. She is a terrific event designer.
All three of us (and many other amazing Northeast Florida Talents) collaborated on a special project of Agnes for a concept shoot she did, inspired by a stunning piece of cinema.
My humble contribution was the above cake, which was inspired by the film.
I saw many of the photos that Agnes took at her shoot and cannot wait for the time she posts everything on her blog! It will blow people away!!
Last week, I had the pleasure to create the birthday cake for, Agnes Lopez, one of the best photographers in Northeast Florida and a good friend of mine. She has many exciting ventures on her plate and I am very happy to call her a friend!
The flavor was carrot cake with pecan cream cheese buttercream.
Here is a cake that I take some pride in creating. It was designed for a bride that I went to high school with, actually, small world!
She brought in a photo of a cake that had swags and roses, which lead me to create this cake. The flavor of the cake is Yellow and Chocolate Butter Cake with Hazelnut, cookies and cream, and peanut butter butter creams.
The roses and swags were sculpted out of sugar paste! The venue was the Florida Yacht Club.
Here is a petite cake that was ordered via one of our vendor partnerships with a local reception venue. The bride wanted a simple cake for her budget, that was still beautiful and able to feed her party of 40. So I created this cute little two tier cake with white fondant and lavender hearts.
The flavor of the cake was yellow butter cake with vanilla bean butter cream.
Here is a cake that was done for one of my mother's customers, whose daughter was celebrating her 12th birthday. She wanted something different and elegant. After studying our blog and website, she wanted a white fondant cake with a butterfly and our signature bejeweled Poppy!
The flavors of the cake were chocolate cake with cookies and cream.
