Still wondering what this is all about? Well here are the details behind the idea:
As most of you know, I used to own and operate The Frosted Cake Shop when I lived in California. TFCS was my first love. In my midtown studio I was able to create custom cakes for my loyal clients and community. I enjoyed getting to know my brides to design one-of-a-kind cakes for those big, special days and making a replica of a child's favorite toy out of sugar for an unforgettable birthday. Although I do not regret making the decision to move away from my hometown, I will always have a special spot in my heart for the first business I ever launched.
While I am not able to create cakes for all you lovely readers, I wanted to figure out a way to really connect and be a part of your celebrations. So here's the gist:
YOU: an amazing home baker, hostess with the mostess, and/or mom of the year You volunteered to throw a bridal shower, got assigned desserts for a baptism, or are making a special birthday cake for one of your beloved children. You are talented, creative, and can do it all - well, almost. You want to create a day that everyone remembers, with personal touches and custom decorations. You want to make show-stopping desserts. And while you are known for fantastic cakes and mouth-watering treats, you are not a pastry chef and/or are busy juggling multiple to-do lists. While I know whatever you are cooking up in the kitchen (literally) will be fabulous, let's step it up a notch. Turn those bridal cupcakes into pieces of art with elegant sugar flowers and that birthday cake into an unforgettable moment by capturing your child's favorite things.
YOU: event stylist extraordinaire, DIY wedding planner, and/or super-savvy bride You are planning the party of the year or your own BIG day. You've spent hours on Pinterest and Etsy, gathering ideas to make sure your event is unique and perfectly tailored to your or your client's taste. You've curated your favorite prints and paper goods, and started souring starred vendors and caterers. You want every corner of the venue to sparkle with style and personality. While you are crafty, you are busy. You want to make sure the desserts are not left behind. Your local bakery does not carry exactly what you are looking for or your super-talented aunt/cousin/bff is baking the wedding cake themselves. Whether you are on a budget or can't seem to source the right local talent, let us come together to design the perfect cake topper, bride/groom figures, or delicate, eternal flowers- all made from sugar.
Style Sweet CA Shop will carry popular flowers and trendy toppers for purchase. However, I'd love to get to know your and your event. Let's design something custom together! Most items will be made to order. As always, please contact me sooner than later. Creativity is not instantaneous- and you know, there's shipping too. Local Vancouverites? Let's meet for easy delivery!
To be honest, I have been wanting to launch this shop for a while now. Even when TFCS was still in existence, I always thought this would be a great way to reach all of my friends, readers, and clients around the country. Now that I am in a new stage of life, I think this is the perfect opportunity to make this dream happen.
