A Ruffled Wedding Cake by Sweet Cheeks Baking Co.

By, January 28, 2013

Heather and Gabe contacted Sweet Cheeks Baking Co in July to create a beautiful wedding cake for their November nuptials at the Scripps Seaside Forum in La Jolla.

The goal was to design a cake that fit the modern feel of the Scripps Forum, as well as the layered and ruffled look that Heather loves.

Heather and Gabe’s wedding, which was coordinated by Details Defined, had a modern beach feel with pops of pink and deep purple. The cake complemented the aesthetic of the day, and it turned out beautifully!

Because the wedding was held in November, we wanted to offer the guests a cool selection of seasonal flavors. We created a rich chocolate option, as well as a lighter, fruitier choice. Since berries were at their ripest peak, we suggested using a dark berry to offset the lemon brightness they requested. As a result, the cakes could not have been more deliciously paired – all frosted in our Italian Meringue Butter Cream.

The bottom tier was made of our Chocolate Blackout Cake, with Chocolate Butter Cream, and 60% Belgian Chocolate Ganache fillings. The top two tiers featured our Vanilla Bean Sour Cream Cake, with Fresh Blackberry Curd and Lemon Curd fillings.

Heather and Gabe hired Kathy Wright Flowers to create their amazing arrangements. Kathy built up a tremendous, extra large Malmaisson Rose, which became the singular floral topper for the cake. Kathy makes beautiful pieces of art, so we were thrilled to have one of her creations finish off our cake.

All of our options were practical, and within the desired price range!
