Sharon’s Boho Wedding

One of the perks of being a pastry chef is the ability to make your own wedding cake. That’s exactly what our head pastry chef Sharon did when she got married last summer. Her beautiful bohemian wedding, photographed by Me Creative, was recently featured on Boho Weddings.

Sharon and her hubby bucked many wedding traditions, from splitting the ceremony and reception into separate events and scrapping the speeches and bouquet toss. Their marriage ceremony was held at Toronto City Hall and the reception was a two-day event in Muskoka at Camp Queen Elizabeth, Sharon’s childhood summer camp.

 

The couple’s personalities were evident in all corners of the wedding, which made for a unique and memorable experience for their guests. Sharon decorated a three-tier naked cake with fresh flowers, figs and a gold-framed floral print with the help of another talented cake designer and friend Stefania. She also baked an assortment of pies and tarts for her guests to indulge in.

Sharon and Peter’s advice to other couple’s getting married is simple, “There will be a lot of work to do, you’ll spend more money than you planned and you will want to elope, but in the end it will all be worth it.”

 

Check out the full blog here and come see us if you’re looking for a wedding cake this year. Sharon and our team will make sure it’s just as beautiful and delicious as hers!

A Special Birthday Cake For David Suzuki

It’s not every day that a Canadian legend turns 80. On Friday, April 8th, David Suzuki celebrated his birthday at The Carlu in downtown Toronto. The event, by JK LIVE Productions, was held to celebrate one of Canada’s most famous environmentalists. There was a canoe hanging from the wall and you could win the chance to name a new species of bee at the silent auction. The main event included video messages from the likes of Chris Hadfield and Rick Mercer, speeches from members of the Suzuki family and music from Chantal Kreviazuk, Serena Ryder and a group of Inuit throat singers.

Then, of course, there was the cake. Created by one of our talented cake designers, the five-tier cake looked as though it was made of wood and was covered in edible meringue mushrooms, sugar blades of grass and beautiful, hand painted monarch butterflies. This cake looked like you might find it in the middle of the forest.

Chocolate bark, meringue mushrooms, sugar pastillage butterflies, matcha moss and several hours of hard work came together to create a show-stopping cake that even Mr. Suzuki himself had to stop to admire! We were honoured to be part of this iconic Canadian’s birthday celebration.
