Eve's Daisy Cake

This couple were great to meet with. I loved them instantly. We designed several options during our first meeting, but I think they chose the best one. I especially love the groom's enthusiasm for frosting "stuff on wires" which we were able to accommodate with the frosting bumblebees on the cake. We added the dashed bee-lines after seeing the sweet little invitations that Amy from Mimi designs came up with for the couple.

Kristine's Cake

Kristine knew she wanted a lace cake to match her dress before she even chose the specific dress! Once we saw the dress she decided on, we were smitten! A delicate Chantilly lace with tiny tulle ruffle accents led us to this little sweetie of a cake.

Andrea's Stripes and Polka Dots

Somehow, the simplest of designs are always the most striking. Andrea's cake stemmed from a striped bow tie. We added the dots to break up the graphic and used three different shades of green from her bridesmaids' dresses. We were lucky to find this crisp green and white grosgrain ribbon for the favour boxes which were filled with our hand-made petit fours (per the groom's request, he had one, and he was hooked!)

Up and Blogging!

We're so lucky at Gateaux to have such unique clients to inspire our cake designs. It makes our job so incredibly fun! After being urged by some of our past clients, as well as our friends over at Studio 306 to create a blog to share our latest creations with the blogosphere (blogisphere? I don't know my make-believe techno-geography terms quite yet) we've finally taken the plunge.

If you are a past client, and don't see your cake posted, email us a picture. While the cake ladies aren't total hacks in the photography department, every once in a while, we just don't get a decent shot of one of the little sugar-beauties.

We hope you enjoy our blog as much as we love making the cakes that are featured on it!

Truly, Robin
