Cake Tips…It’s what’s on the inside that counts! January 10, 2011

Filed under: Uncategorized — croissantsbistro @ 6:07 pm

Most brides are very concerned with the way there wedding cake will LOOK, and rightfully so! It’s the centerpiece of the reception, standing tall and elegant and making all your guests drool. The most important thing is that once its been cut, its still making them drool…so dear brides, keep in mind that when you go to your consultation, TASTE IS IMPORTANT!

Your wedding cake consultant will supply you with a few of the most popular wedding cake flavor choices, but be sure to ask questions and don’t be afraid to sample something else. If you love red velvet, ask for a slice! If your fiance is a peanut butter nut, notify the consultant when you make your appointment so that she’ll have some ready for you to try. The cake should taste just as great as it looks, never settle for boring.

Owl Moon October 7, 2010

Filed under: Uncategorized — croissantsbistro @ 2:03 pm

When you were a child, wasn’t there one book you just couldn’t get enough of? The pictures amazed you, the story was exciting, and every time you picked it up you got swept away.  There’s only a few things that really get a child excited and another is cake!! Last week we combined the two and this is what resulted…keep in mind this is not the book, this is cake!

Owl Moon

This book was created by covering the entire cake in fondant and painting! Our pastry chef is not only talented when it comes to cake, but she’s an amazing artist as well. Her painting skills come in handy when approached with cakes like this. She uses food coloring as paint and creates beautiful images like this. The gold seals were made separately to give it a more realistic look and the words where piped on in buttercream. Other than that, it’s a true painting!

 

Yankee Doodle Dandy! September 29, 2010

Filed under: Uncategorized — croissantsbistro @ 1:18 pm

We’ve blogged about grooms cakes before, but this one is special for all you dog lovers out there! ….and baseball lovers!  A few months ago, we were asked to do a grooms cake for a couple with an adorable dog, and a huge love of the Yankees. The bride and groom requested that their grooms cake represent both of their loves, so they came up with the idea of the dog wearing the jersey. The end result? See for yourself!
