Hello again! It’s been quite a while since I’ve gotten a chance to get over here to the blog … so as you might imagine, there are a LOT of cakes to update everyone on! To start out here are a few of the cupcake towers we delivered last month. I’ll be posting a bunch of wedding cakes soon!
This first cupcake tower was made for a Sex and the City themed bridal shower at the Marina Grand in Staten Island, NY. The cupcakes were chai cake with cinnamon honey buttercream, devil’s food cake with vanilla buttercream & almond cake with chocolate buttercream. The top cake was a vanilla cake, filled with raspberry preserves, frosted in vanilla buttercream and decorated in fondant. This was the first time I was able to use Bella Cupcake Couture cupcake wraps as well, which I think fit into the theme perfectly!
This was my favorite view of the top cake city skyline 😀

This next cake & cupcake tower combo was made for a Christening at the Brick House in Wycoff, NJ. The cupcakes were devil’s food & vanilla frosted in either chocolate or vanilla buttercream and red velvet frosted in cream cheese frosting. The cake was all vanilla, filled & frosted in vanilla buttercream and decorated in fondant.

Here’s the latest bridal shower cake that was made for a co-worker. She wanted to replicate the design on plates they were using at the shower, thus the “bridal shower girls” on the gifts chocolate plate design. The actual cake was comprised of one layer of yellow cake and one layer of devil’s food cake, filled and frosted in buttercream.
And last but not least in the blog cake catch-up … here’s three 9″ cakes I made for a bride-to-be to serve at her bridal shower brunch. As a tasting preview, I made the three cake flavors that she’ll be having at her wedding:
Yellow cake filled with raspberry jam and frosted in vanilla buttercream
Almond cake filled and frosted in vanilla buttercream
Chocolate cake filled with chocolate ganache and frosted in chocolate buttercream
The decorations were a late night/early morning inspiration based on a modern china pattern that I found while browsing through a variety of sites.
The latest SweetElement creation … a yellow cake filled with strawberries and vanilla buttercream and decorated with buttercream and chocolate.
Strawberry and buttercream filling … mmmm …..
Since the bride is having her family tartan incorporated into her wedding dress, that was a critical element to incorporate into the design. As an inside joke, I was also asked to incorporate a barn and some martini glasses into the design as well. I have to say I am quite pleased with the end result!

I admit I’ve been a photo slacker … big time … so I thought this would be a nice way to get back into the swing of things … 😀
Here’s the first cake I made for Digitas … it was a wedding shower cake for my boss … red velvet cake with cream cheese frosting and white chocolate heart cutouts as decoration.
