We were invited to create two wedding cakes for a special episode of the Katie Couric Show, which aired on Valentine's Day! Katie co-hosted her "Katie's Wedding Day" episode with Donald Driver of the Greenbay Packers. In addition to serving as Katie's co-host, Donald played the role of Katie's "groom".

We were asked to design a "splurge" and a "steal" wedding cake. The cherry blossom cake represented a more extravagant "splurge" and the simple design was a "steal" for a bride on a budget. The two different cakes demonstrate how a bride can tailor her cake design to her budget, and no matter what she chooses,she can have a beautiful wedding cake on her special day!

We were pleasantly surprised to see that Katie tasted our wedding cake sample on screen! We love when our cakes are taste tested, because we pride ourselves on the delicious taste of our cakes and filling underneath the exquisite outer design.
Remember, no matter your budget, you can have a great experience designing a wedding cake that reflects your taste and fits with the theme of your wedding!

This whimsical wedding took place on the grounds of a private 12-acre waterfront estate in Guilford, Connecticut that boasted a replica of Stonehenge, as well as a large vineyard and orchard.
David Blaine, a close friend of the couple, entertained guests with his spectacular magic throughout the night.
There was torrential rain the day before and on the morning of the wedding, which aside from making the bride nervous, afforded a double rainbow and sunset.
All 230 guests feasted on various hors d'oeuvres, including mini lobster rolls and french fries with truffle oil, as well as a course featuring a duet plate of filet mignon and sea bass with rissotto cake and grilled asparagus. After the custom wedding cake, candy stripers distributed all sorts of fun candy, including gummy brains.
Given Murat's Turkish heritage, each guest received a seaglass Nazar Boncugu (thought to be protective and ward off evil spirits), imported from Turkey.
We created a custom wedding cake design inspired by the invitation, which boasted delicate dogwood branches and leaves with blossoming flowers.
To match the invitation colors and reception palette of creams and golds, we finished the cake layers in Swiss vanilla ivory fondant. This custom wedding cake had alternating tiers of white Tahitian vanilla cake with strawberry and raspberry mousseline, and dark chocolate cake with bittersweet ganache and chocolate mousseline. The cake had cascading fondant branches, leaves, and flowers that were brushed with an edible gold pearl dust.
Many thanks to Bryan Avigne for the beautiful photography!

When a couple wants a romantic spring wedding The Palm House at Brooklyn Botanic Gardens always delivers a stunning backdrop. The talents of Ambiance Luxe Wedding Designs and KD & J Botanica brought the romance of spring into the wedding with gorgeous pink and white flowers, delicate details, and glittering gold accents. The beauty of the wedding design and landscape was captured amazingly by JAG Studios. Take a look at some of the shots from this stunning spring wedding!
|We loved creating this wedding cake! We thought the cake was perfect for a romantic spring wedding, such as this!|
Each tier of the wedding cake was covered with white fondant and accented with strings of white fondant pearls and lace detailing. The wedding cake was topped with a bouquet of blush pink peonies and roses. These flowers were featured throughout the rest of the cake as well. We were very happy with the overall presentation of this wedding cake and hope you love it as much as we do!

Inspired by the glamor of air travel in the 1960s we designed a wedding cake to coordinate with this beautiful shoot put designed by Ambiance Luxe Wedding Designs. The shoot captured the nostalgia of 1960s Panam travel while putting a modern spin on the old world style. The brides tea-length dress and pillbox hat kept the style reminiscent of the 60s, while the pops of color from the yellow flowers with blue silk buttons to the bride's Jewel green jacket put a modern spin on the design. We wanted to create a simple and elegant all white wedding cake featuring vintage inspired white poppies. We love how all the elements of this inspiration shoot came together!
