1888722_10152196001028080_1628765692_nWe were thrilled to be able to work with the lovely ladies at the Refinery Magazine again – this time working on a “Bloom & Blush” feature for their spring issue. Inspired by the red, black and gold in the shoot we created a small dessert table for the mock wedding. The spread was shot at Colony Farms on a gorgeous winter day, both the sun and fog worked in our favour. Emily, along with the help of her assistant Megan Davies, were humbled to be working along side so many other talented women and businesses including Lisa of Ophelia and Romeo Photographers, Katie Elwood, Hope & Co., Celsia Florist, Adorn Atelier, Christie Graham, Frocks Modern, and Lovers Tempo. Be sure to check out the shoot in issue 5 of the Refinery Magazine, pages 156-164.

Simply Rose

This month I got to meet Rose of Simply Rose Photography. She is currently doing a “Vendor Series” of local wedding professionals on her blog. If you haven’t checked out her work you really should. She takes lots of bright, crisp photos and always seems to capture so much joy. I was so excited when she asked if she could come by the kitchen to snap some pictures!

Screen Shot 2013-12-23 at 11.59.25 PMWhile she was there I had fun experimenting with some kale flowers on a dummy wedding cake and finished up a Christmas themed cupcake order. Rose was so sweet and we had lots of fun chatting away while we worked. You can check out the When Pigs Fly blog post, as well as the rest of her beautiful posts here.

As previously posted, we got the chance to work with a food stylist for film & TV this summer. Last night the episode of Once Upon A Time we worked on aired. (Season 3, Ep. 3) It was pretty exciting to see all of our work on screen! All of the treats from When Pigs Fly Pastries, The Pie Hole & the stylist herself can be seen in the first 5 minutes of the episode. Check out these screen shots of the scene…

When Pigs Fly Pastries currently operates out of a commercial space called Commissary Connect. Emily works along side many other talented vendors, including The Pie Hole and Soho Road. This space provides individual areas belonging to each business, with communal areas such as stoves, ovens, and sinks. Commissary kitchens are a way for food vendors to operate in a licensed, food safe environment without having to manage a storefront. From popsicle makers to pâté, and food trucks to juicers – Commissary Connect has a little bit of everything. It’s a great place to be able to connect with other local talents while pursuing your business’ own goals.

The kitchen was recently featured in The Vancouver Sun, with a brief spotlight on each of the people who operate there. To view the story click here. It’s a great little article featuring new ways for foodies to operate in the city!

The ReFlNERy things in life

the-refinery-mag-coverWe were both thrilled and honoured to be featured on the cover of the fall issue of The Refinery Magazine!

When Pigs Fly Pastries was asked to work on a spread in the current issue of the online magazine back in July. We were lucky to work with some great local businesses, including Gillian Stevens Photography, The Part & Parcel, as well as our friends at The Pie Hole. We featured autumn delights for a backyard DIY type wedding – including pumpkin pie cake, mini apple pecan cupcakes, apple cranberry pies and more.

In addition to the cover, photos and an original recipe of ours can be seen from page 129-131. Our treats from the shoot continue to be sprinkled throughout pages 142-148 as well.

Have a look at the entire issue of the Refinery Magazine here.

More photos from our shoot can also be found on the Part & Parcel Blog.

On Screen

On screenOn screenWhen Pigs Fly Pastries was recently approached by a woman who is a food stylist for film & television sets. Having had worked in film in the past, and having seen stylists at work, Emily has always had an admiration for the art in what they do. There are so many little tricks and secrets that make every edible element look like perfection!

She was thrilled to be asked to help out on the stylist’s current show. Emily provided a three tiered cake & nine dozen marzipan fruits. These goodies will appear in the episode of the unnamed show in the fall – details & air date to come!

Check out our feature in the current issue of Nouveau Magazine! This cake was for a lovely couple, Vanessa & Eric, who were married last September at the Terminal City Club. Their 4 tier cake mimicked elements from the room – including lace, pin-tucked table cloths, diamonds & their monogram.

Issues of the magazine can be bought on their website, or you can see more beautiful images from the day on the Jasalyn Thorne Photography Blog!
