              Metallics are surprisingly versatile, says New York City event-planning guru Harriette Rose Katz. “Depending on how and where you bring them into your celebration,” she says, “they can be elegant, whimsical, or very natural.” –Bridal Guide

            Be seated. “Couples are moving away from a reception layout based on large round tables, which has a tendency to feel too much like a conference event, and are instead opting for either very long, rectangular tables or a mix of long tables surrounded by smaller square and round tables — all for a more intimate vibe. “-  Bridal Guide

            His and hers cocktails. What better way to give your guests a glimpse of who you are than by serving them your favorite libations? Laesserkeck points out that this trend is not only easier on the budget (no more guesstimating for an open bar) but it’s an instant conversation starter.- Bridal Guide

            Naked cakes, which are unfrosted (or partially frosted) and simply adorned with berries or fresh flowers, are trending from coast to coast — and at both relaxed receptions and more formal affairs, says Nataly from the Great Dane Baking Company in Long Beach, California.-Bridal Guide

            Photos for days. Couples are booking PPA photographers for more than just the big day itself, hiring pros to capture the entire wedding weekend — sometimes even an entire week — with family and friends, to ensure the full-on experience is forever on film.-Bridal Guide

Where are you based?

We are in Norcross off of Jimmy Carter and 85

6070 Dawson Blvd., Suite C

Norcross, GA 30093

Do you offer your services to clients outside of Atlanta?

Not typically.  Cakes tend to not travel well, so it just depends on the circumstances. 

What options for customization do you offer?

We offer custom design from top to bottom.  It starts out with custom structures to the details and colors within the design.

At what point in the wedding planning process should clients begin meeting with you?

The cake should be one of the last décor pieces to design, so it fits seamlessly within the atmosphere.  We typically meet with clients from 9-3 months prior to the wedding.

Could you describe the creative process behind designing your cakes?

We like to get inspired by the feel of the entire wedding and take bits and pieces from different elements to truly make a major design feature within the reception.  Inspiration can come from the bride’s dress, the invitations or simply the textures used within the wedding.  We begin by building structures with Styrofoam to get the exact size and shape we want and then we start sketching.  I send over ideas to the couple and planner and it is truly a collaborative effort.

What are some of your favorite cake trends at the moment?

We are loving the trend of color cakes instead of the traditional white wedding cake.  It is enabling us to stretch ourselves outside of the box a little bit with design and we are loving how they turn out in the reception environment.  Metallics and painted cakes are also some of our favorite trends.   It really turns a cake into a canvas and really gives a beautiful artistic touch to receptions.

What makes your service unique?

We push the boundaries.  We really try to do things that you have never seen before to truly make a client’s wedding a once in a lifetime experience.  Our owner was an engineer prior to starting the company, so we approach structures and challenges in a very mathematical and precise way.  If a client or planner has an idea… we are always up for the challenge!

What is something that most people don’t know about you or your business?

That we are all science nerds.  A lot of people don’t realize how much science is actually involved from the precision within the baking process to the way the cake acts in different temperatures.  We are incredibly passionate about making our cakes perfect.  We spend a lot of time planning and trialing prior to the wedding weekend and leave nothing up to chance.
