cake week is coming!

November!!!

I will be showcasing some of the most impressive talents in the cake designing industry that Toronto has has to offer. I have said this before and will continue to say it, Toronto is truly a leader in all things boutique wedding and cakes are by no means an exception.   Our designers are artists and very few cities can compete with our team of skilled cake makers/designers/bakers.

So with sweetness in mind, we will visit some of my favorite cake designers and talk to them about what makes their cakes/cupcakes/macaroons/marshmellows….. the very best! stay tuned!

This cake was designed by Shauna Austin Landry of City Girl cakes in Halifax, NS. She flew into Toronto to bake and decorate just a few days before the wedding. ¬†Working out of someone else’s kitchen can’t be easy for a professional baker.

Since we planned our wedding in just 30 days, it was so nice to be able to rely on our skilled vendors. Thank you Shauna!

Rainy days…

Oh October days! Today is a bit of a rainy day in Toronto and I am oddly inspired!

I couldn’t help but think of how so many people say that the rain is romantic… you know lying in bed hearing the drops on the roof, snuggled up with a book or someone special or both!

well what if “said rainy day” was the biggest of day for you and someone you love? In my career I have certainly shared a few rain storms with some lovely couples, I thought today would be a good day to showcase some romantic wedding day photos.

One wedding stands out in particular, one of Savoir Flare’s favourite couples. Mani and Jennifer were so much fun to work with. Mani an engineer and Jennifer in design together they were so organized and had incredible taste. It was so fun to be able to pull together their ideas and create their amazing Persian wedding day.

Just as the couple were getting ready to leave the rain showed up… made for very dramatic and romantic photography. The photography for this wedding was supplied by Z Molu Photography, it was the first time we had worked with him, but his pictures were so dramatic we hope to work with him again!
