Best Tasting Wedding Cake


When Pigs Fly Pastries competed for the title of “Best Tasting Wedding Cake” at the 7th annual BC Wedding Awards – and won!!

Emily presented voters and judges with a raspberry filled vanilla cupcake topped with a lime burst buttercream.
She had scowered the city high and low to find the rare “finger limes” she used on the Food Network last year to use in the lime icing, as well as garnish on top – making sure each taster got the perfect amount of lime flavour explosion.

Following the awards, Emily had this to say: “Although I’ll forever be the crazy finger lime girl after that speech, I am so proud to have been recognized by such amazing industry peers. I truly believe all cakes need to taste as good as they look, and put so much love into each one from start to finish.
Cheers to my talented fellow cake ladies who take the industry by storm, my beautiful friends and family who understand why they rarely get to see me, and to all of you for your continued love and support! A huge congratulations goes out to all the nominees, finalists and winners on another great year – can’t wait to see what everyone has in store for 2017!”

More Film & TV fun!


It seems as soon as wedding season ends we are bombarded with orders for film stuff – which we LOVE. It’s always something fun and different, and definitely a nice change of pace after the summer months. Lately we have been up to our ears with it, creating everything from magical cupcake bouquets to elaborate tiered cakes to hundreds of fondant mini cakes.

See our work featured regularly in “Once Upon A Time” and new seasons of “Girlfriend’s Guide to Divorce”, as well as smaller jobs on shows like “No Tomorrow”, “The Magicians”, “The Arrangement”, “Everything Everything”, and a couple of much anticipated block busters soon to be released…!
