The end of an era…

by

The popular TV show “Once Upon A Time” has come to a close after 7 seasons. As many of you know, it was filmed in and around Vancouver for the duration of it’s run. Emily was lucky enough to be hired to work on this show many times. She was often called upon to create something out of the ordinary and unique. Some of the projects included countless mid-evil cakes, a seafood buffet (that contained no real seafood!), a towering macaroon topiary, plenty of pies, and faux chocolate soufflés. Emily feels so lucky to have played a small role in this magic over the years and work with such an awesome crew! Thanks for everything guys!

Fifty Shades

by

We’re excited to finally share that Emily created the wedding cakes for the newest Fifty Shades movie – Fifty Shades Freed!

She crafted a towering tiered cake – nine fondant cakes total including the separators. On set, Emily and her sister, Melissa, delicately placed hundreds of flowers in between the tiers and billowing on the top. Emily also made several single tiered raspberry filled vanilla cakes that were served and eaten during the scene.

It was a huge project that ended up being a ton of fun! We’re grateful for the opportunity!

A cake for a Grammy win!

by

Band Portugal. The Man celebrated their Grammy win for “Feel It Still” with this custom rice cooker cake. It’s said that when they first started they bought a mini van, a rice cooker and a 5 pound bag of rice. They toured for a year living in the van and eating nothing but rice. Clearly it was worth it!

It was a privilege to create a cake for these awesome guys. This rice cooker was a chocolate cake with almost an entire bottle of Jameson thrown in for good measure.

Who else can’t get “Feel It Still” out of their head?

A styled shoot fit for a Queen

A styled shoot we collaborated on in Alberta last year is featured on the Wedluxe Magazine website! The wedding set up was inspired by Queen Elizabeth I.

We shot at two dreamy locations – the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise and Fairmont Banff Springs. It was such a fun day getting to meet and work with such a talented group of vendors. View more images from the day and see additional vendors here.

Best Tasting Wedding Cake

by

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!

by

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…!
