Alice in Wonderland custom Cake for a Sweet 16 Party

A few weekends ago we created this beautiful Sweet Sixteen Alice in Wonderland Cake. So many special elements went into the design, and we love every bit of it!

The “Eat Me” Tag on the top layer is a great way to start! Matches the theme, and what everyone is thinking 🙂

Starting at the top, this adorable floral-print teacup is made out of fondant with painted flower embellishment. Completely edible, but definitely too beautiful to eat!

The base layer features the Cheshire Cat grin through the shadows and fun fondant playing cards.

Finished off with the fondant inscription, hand drawn to match the lettering throughout.

All of our cakes are made with 3 layers of cake and 3 layers of mousse, guaranteeing that the inside is as tasty as the outside is beautiful.

These Sweet Sixteen cakes are a great opportunity to show creativity in theme.

Mexican Theme Sweet 16 Cake

Sweet 16 cakes allow so much room for creativity. We’ve had so many different themes, and this cake is one of our favorites lately!

The sombreros, tacos, and blanket are all made of fondant! The floral and swirl decoration is hand drawn with buttercream inspired by the traditional Mexican embroidery used on clothing.

We made another version of this cake without the tacos and sombreros, focusing on the beautiful features of the embroidery pattern.

We’re looking forward to using some of these design elements in our Cinco de Mayo celebration coming up, too!

Hope this post gave you some inspiration for a Sweet Sixteen cake or any birthday cake!

 

The Perfect Farm Wedding

We know that the rustic, farm wedding is growing more and more popular lately. With it’s casual feel in a beautiful location, we completely understand.

The Cafe Pierrot manager, Katie, was recently married at the perfect farm in Long Valley, NJ. Cafe Pierrot took care of the desserts (of course!), and had a great time celebrating with one of our favorite couples.

Here are some pictures from the wedding:

Engagement Party: Nautical Theme

6.4.12cake

On June 3rd, Cafe Pierrot catered an engagement party for a young couple in Sparta, NJ. The food was fantastic and the guests enjoyed each other company, but our favorite part was the dessert table!

The party was held in a lakefront house with the family boat bringing guests from a public parking lot (also lakefront), so the couple chose a nautical theme for the cake and cookies. These theme also worked well with the theme of “tying the knot.” All the desserts were eaten. Not even a single mini cupcake was left over!
