What a fun night we had celebrating 6 years in business with so many amazing friends and clients that we have gotten to know and work with over the years. As always, Barbie Hull did a great job capturing the night, Bamboo Beats literally lit the place up, Ravishing Radish provided us with some tasty bites and Anne from Floressence made us some beautiful centerpieces. I couldn't have done it without Meghan from Clutch Events direction and comedy!! Thank you to all you amazing people that helped and showed up to celebrate with us- we are so grateful to have such a wonderful community to be part of!!! We hope you enjoy the birthday candle party favors from Big Dipper Wax on your next cake!
Last May this amazing couple celebrated their wedding with a fun and festive celebration! From the handmade bouquet made of brooches, to the bright colors of decorations all over, it was a truly amazing day for these two. We had so much fun creating this embroidery style wedding cake to go along with all the colorful decorations.
The cake was iced in our Italian meringue buttercream and layered with fondant and buttercream details. We will never forget the excitement from Suzanne when she came to pick up the cake, it's what we live for as cake artists! Along with the beautiful design on the outside they had a mixture of Chocolate Decadence -which is our dark chocolate fudge cake with layers of chocolate cream and ganache and Italian Cream- coconut cake layered with coconut pecan cream cheese.
Lisa Marie Imagery did a beautiful job capturing all of these moments- check out her blog about this wedding and the amazing images of the cake she captured.
As the temperature drops and the days get shorter, we are thinking up new and creative ways to reflect and celebrate Fall. In this spirit of reflection, we would like to share one of our favorite fall wedding cakes from Margeaux and Nick’s wedding last October.
This “Fleurs and Filigree” wedding took place at DeLille Cellars--a small, intimate vineyard in beautiful Woodinville, Washington. The bride and groom paired elegant simplicity with seasonal blooms and warm tones throughout the reception, and our custom cake capped the refinement of the day.
This three-tiered cake was elegant on the outside and a menagerie of flavors inside. Each layer delighted the palette; almond, lavender, and vanilla bean cakes were combined with cream cheese filling. The smooth Italian meringue buttercream design was finished with gold fondant bands and meticulously-designed and hand-crafted sugar poppies dipped in gold.
We loved seeing photos of the couple enjoying our cake on the Borrowed & Blue blog—check the link below to see for yourself!

We would like to introduce Taylor, the newest member of our team. We are so incredibly grateful to have so many talented and fun ladies working all together.
We had the pleasure of working with one of the most talented and sweetest photographers, Barbie Hull, on a photoshoot at the Sanctuary at Admiral to introduce a new little bite that we are offering- "Cake Bites".
After serving these as samples for so many events we had such a huge response and decided to offer them as an option for a "cake bar". These fun and easily pop-able bites gives everyone the chance to try many flavors and fillings. Each cake bite is two layers of cake with a layer of filling held together with a wooden skewer. We have set up a few ideas of set up with a presentation cake...small or large! Pricing will depend on set up so please contact us for more details.
This year we have had so much fun creating cakes for styled shoots! We are so grateful to have such a talented city of amazing vendors to collaborate with. We were so excited to work with Alyssa Estrada of Elle and James Co. and Lora Grady Photography along with Vintage Ambiance, Anna Gallup of Grace and Blooms, Belltown Bride and Posh Styling at Woodland Meadow Farms. Brittney Smith was the stunning model.
We created a two-tiered marbled fondant hexagon cake with gold edges along with gorgeous fresh flowers. We just love how everything came together so beautifully!
We recently had a blast hanging with one of our favorite ladies, Barbie Hull at the Sanctuary at Admiral for an amazing shoot.

We just love it when we get to meet the person behind the cake! We created this cake for Charlie, who has quite the musical history to celebrate his 70th birthday at HWY 99 Blues Club! This sculpted cake of one of his Line 6 amps that we customized with his company logo- Morgan Sound along with one of his favorite guitars! It was so awesome to meet such a talented, loved artist!
Here is a little history below from Charlie-
As if turning 70 wasn't enough of a milestone, over 200 of my industry and musician friends showed up to celebrate our connections and the A/V projects, music and bands we have created and perfected over the years. Many of these people I have known for over 50 years.
I have been blessed with a career that spans some 50 years, beginning with Rock and Roll Bands in the 60s that opened for the likes of Cream, The Yardbirds and other mega groups of that time as the music industry underwent a huge revolution sparked by Woodstock. My musical career took me into recording studios where I learned the art of professional recording and eventually became an engineer/producer. I worked for Mayor Wes Uhlman in creating a music program for Seattle groups .. allowing them to perform in City Parks (the program was called TRUCK and featured a special flatbed truck as the stage). I began building sound systems and was 'discovered' by an LA promoter who began using me for events in Seattle. I then connected with Gordon Lightfoot and became his touring engineer, a job I held for 12 years. During that time I worked with Judy Collins, Lou Rawls, The Jazz Crusaders, Liberace, Spinal Tap, The Climax Blues Band and many more too numerous to mention. Morgan Sound, the company that came from these years, continues to provide state of the art audio systems for concert venues and stadiums around the Pacific NW. I now head up the Design/Installation division of Morgan Sound and spend my days creating audio, video and lighting systems for churches, night clubs, marine vessels, City Halls and any venue that needs services of our type. The gathering included people from all of these eras of my life.
We had such an amazing time with Kate and Jared this summer helping them create the perfect cake for their wedding at Rock Creek Garden. They were so awesome to work with! We created a 3 tiered cake with white pearl fondant and a beautiful quilted pattern with edible sugar diamond centers. Cheers to the newlyweds!
The Washington State Radiological Society celebrated International Day of Radiology at its annual meeting in Seattle on November 7, 2015. WSRS board members gathered to cut the fabulous commemorative cake that we created with a fondant appliqué of the very first X-Ray, (of Frau Roentgen's hand), from 120 years ago. Thank you so much for sending us this picture of everyone!
