Top places to find Smash Cakes

by

Niko Cake Smash-29 We have been featured by VancouverMom for their picks on where to buy 1st birthday smash cakes! These sessions are always so much fun and are definitely recommended for anyone with a little one celebrating this milestone.

We often provide cakes to our friends at Family Creative Imagery for a full photography session. They generally do single portrait and family photos before everything gets messy -then let the kids go to town! The cost of these sessions start at $349 which includes the cake. If you’re interested in booking one click here.

Food Network!

When Pigs Fly Pastries was selected to compete on a new baking show called “Sugar Showdown”. We were flown to Toronto for a whirlwind trip to film in July. It was lots of fun and we met some awesome people – especially the other competitors surprisingly enough! Although we did quickly learn that cooking shows are much harder than they look on TV! This was a tough competition and it really tested our abilities when we given BEETS as our secret ingredient. We ended up doing a play on a carrot cake – switching out the grated carrots with grated beets, and adding pineapple, coconut and some lime buttercream to give it a tropical twist!

SugarShowdown

The episode aired on Cooking Channel in the States in January, and just recently aired on Food Network Canada. Since the show we have been overrun with lovely messages from clients, industry pros, friends, family & even perfect strangers! What a dream come true to compete, but having all of your support made it that much sweeter. We cannot wait to compete again!

The Refinery Magazine – round 2!

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.

Did you hear a mention of WPFP on the radio today? You just may have! We dropped some goodies off for our friends at JRFM for their current Johnston’s promo “Pigs Flydays”. Emily felt like some flying pig themed cupcakes were the best way to spread the pigs fly love. Chocolate cupcakes with whipped peppermint ganache, and rum & eggnog cupcakes with cinnamon spice buttercream were on the menu – and from what we heard they were throughly enjoyed. Thanks to Docc, Amanda, Kelly & Terra for letting us stop by!
