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!

When Pigs Fly Pastries is beyond excited to have some of our delights featured in the 2013 spring/summer issue of RealWeddings magazine!

One of our weddings from last summer, Estefania & Ron’s, was selected as one of seven weddings in the issue. Pictured are 3 of the 5 tiers from the “deconstructed wedding cake” they ordered, as well as some of our yummy cheesecake pops! Their “Taste of Europe” feature (pg.43) also includes some truly stunning photos from the day, and some ridiculously gorgeous shots of the bride. Click here to see the digital issue or pick it up in stores today!

Smashing Creativity

by

kavanDo you or someone you know have a darling little one who’s about to have a first birthday? Why not celebrate and make memories in the most delicious, messy, and adorable way possible?!

Last year When Pigs Fly Pastries partnered with Family Creative, a videography & photography company, to feature “Smash Cake Sessions”. Small cakes made custom for the birthday child to do with whatever they please – whether it’s licking off the icing, smashing their fists into it, or crawling through it. Family Creative is there to capture whatever their reactions may be from beginning to end. They are always fun to shoot and perfect ways to mark the milestone, or even use for birthday invitations!
Check out their website for more information about Family Creative and for how to book your “smash” session today!

For more smash cake photos you can check them out in our “Happy Customers” album in our gallery.

Award winning cupcakes

With only a couple days notice, Emily decided to throw herself in the running for the annual Cupcake Throwdown.

25 bakers prepared and donated samples of a chosen flavour and went head to head, vying for cupcake supremacy. As soon as the doors opened, Fortune Sound Club was jammed packed with sugar loving foodies ready to vote for their favourite cupcakes. The evening was a complete success and together $4800 was raised for local charities – RainCity Housing, Five Star Footy Club, and Leaky Heaven Youth!

CupcakeThrowdownPrizes were given out for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd best cupcakes overall – as well as for presentation and most original flavour. When Pigs Fly Pastries was more than thrilled to take 2nd place overall with the Alice in Wonderland inspired “Dreamsicle” cupcake – a French vanilla cupcake with fresh orange filling & Italian buttercream!

Thanks to everyone who was able to come out and make this evening such a huge success!

Theatrical Cupcakes

I hope many of you got to see the hilarious little play “Matt & Ben” – put on by some talented budding actors in Granville Island this past month!

This show featured a comedic look at the lives of Matt Damon & Ben Affleck before they were famous. When Pigs Fly Pastries was excited to have cupcakes featured in every show. As well, an assortment of mini cupcakes in “Matt & Ben theme” were available for everyone after the show on opening night! “How do you like them apple cupcakes”, the “Boston [cream] Ben”, and the “MAAATT DAMON” were the featured flavours of the evening. They were a lot of fun – both to make and to serve! When Pigs Fly Pastries looks forward to working with Maladjusted Projects again soon!

Hamilton Ti-Cats’ newest addition

It was with great excitement that North Vancouver boy, Bo Palmer, was drafted into the CFL. Beginning his football career at the tender age of 8, despite his small size, there were stars in Bo’s future right from the get go. Soon he was smashing records at Windsor Secondary, then leading the SFU team as the offensive MVP. Throughout the years it was obvious that Bo was going places… and with that speed, he was going there fast! At 22 years old, he was picked 33rd overall by the Hamilton TigerCats. Both brains and brawn, Bo will be joining the TiCats in one year, after graduating from SFU with a major in communications, and a minor in criminology.

A surprise party was thrown to celebrate all the hard work and dedication of this talented young athlete. With an endless amount of delicious food, walls adorned with old photos and articles, tearful speeches, and a hoard of fabulous people – a great evening was had by all. When Pigs Fly Pastries was more than happy to make a cake to honour this milestone achievement.

Congratulations, Bo! Can’t wait to see a blur of you in black and gold!
