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…!

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!

Thanks, everyone!

thx32015 so far has been a whirlwind of cakes, cupcakes and smiley faces. We worked non-stop fulfilling wedding orders this summer, partnering with so many new and wonderful clients. We also sprinkled in some fun birthday and corporate event cakes whenever possible. Long days and little sleep were our thing but somehow we still had a blast! Huge thanks to all of you for your continued support, and also your patience for our sometimes less than frequent updates. We are now working hard to get everything up to date, while balancing lots of food styling work on set, and preparing for the busy holiday season ahead! There have been a few top secret projects in the works that we will soon be allowed to release… can’t wait until we can share!

“You have to try some of this cake…”

foodenvy.OUAT Did you spot our cake on Sunday’s episode of Once Upon A Time?

Will appeared to have a serious case of food envy when Belle declared to him “You have to try some of this cake – it’s delicious!”

deliciousGlad to know Belle – or maybe even actress Emilie de Ravin – is a fan of our chocolate fudge cake!
