NBC 5 Station Replica Cake

Sugar and Frosting, Keller bakery was asked to create a cake for NBC Channel 5 and Telemundo in the shape of the new station's 1 year anniversary.  Below is a photograph provided by NBC 5. 
We were super nervous as we always are when recreating such a large and special cake that is recognizeable by all who see it.  We began to scale the cake and also began to determine how we could fit this in the fridge while providing enough cake at the same time. Balancing act for sure!
Don't forget the satellite tower!

Referee jersey and TCU cake pops

In September Shane and Pilar tied the knot and Sugar And Frosting, Fort Worth wedding cake bakery had the privilege of designing this grooms cake and cake pops for this amazing family! The Rainey family owns Proactive Defense in North Lake, TX, and has been serving the community for years!

Shane loves to referee basketball games and attended TCU in Fort Worth Texas, so Sugar and Frosting thought the combination of grooms cake referee jersey and basketball and TCU cake pops just seemed to fit!

As a pastry chef now business owner my range of talents has certainly grown! In 1999 starting culinary school I believed I needed to know how to bake and decorate, create a menu and a prep list, maybe even order supplies.  Today I know how nieve I was! Management, hr, accountant, graphic designer, maintenance, interior design just to name a few of my new hats...  I love what I do however photography has been a disaster and a much needed skill to showcase our cake skills at Sugar and Frosting! We've been blessed with professional photographers along the way however on a randomn Tuesday when were not blessed with the luxury of a professional photographer and need to photograph a cake where do we turn? I'll tell you it hasn't been pretty! 
That all changes today as the management at Sugar and Frosting begin cake photography classes online.  Below is a sample of the before and after! We hope this helps you see the beauty of the cakes your ordering : )
Before: This lovely cake was photographed at the venue with bad lighting and awful backgrounds. 
After: we've learned to blur backgrounds and correct lighting! Just think what we can do with an improved original image!

Would you guess it's gluten free?

The staff at Sugar and Frosting, Keller, TX have been working hard coming up with a brand-new recipes for our customers and their family and friends with gluten intolerance and celiac's disease. Our goal is to provide a gluten-free product that doesn't taste like cardboard that does not taste any different than our already amazing, melt in your mouth treats. Many of the components of the sweet treats we offer are already naturally gluten-free, such as our caramel sauce, chocolate ganache, most of our buttercreams, fillings and more. We've altered our cake batters just slightly using gluten-free flours. Our customers can special order cupcakes and decorated cakes sure to wow all of their guests while being gluten-free. 
Our newest and most surprisingly amazing gluten-free options are flourless chocolate brownies, and decadent gluten-free fudge cookies that will rival the best gluten filled cookie out there.

Sugar & Frosting with The Elegant Petal

At Sugar & Frosting Wedding Cake Studio in Fort Worth we have the privilege of working with some amazing wedding vendors.  We have taken this opportunity to interview some of our favorite vendors and will be offering some of their wisdom and expertise over the next few months on various topics relating to their businesses.  

This week we interviewed Allison Welch of The Elegant Petal area Fort Worth Florist.  

S&F: Can you tell me a little bit about the types of flowers you like to use on wedding cakes?

The Elegant Petal's Allison: For a 3 dimensional look on wedding cake flowers we like to use an interesting greenery or flower buds. Tree fern greenery is feather-like and the Freesia flower has blooms and tiny green buds that look fantastic trailing over the edge of cake layers. 

S&F: What do you suggest for ruffle loving brides: A cluster of gladiolus blooms creates a ruffled effect and, since the blossoms are separate from the stem, most people are in awe as to what type of exotic flower it is. 

The Elegant Petal's Allison:  What's your favorite simple and easy look? A
favorite look to customize cake decor is to use striped or other themed ribbon with a large bloom as an accent.
