“My favorite part of what I do is hearing a couple’s love story. I get to be a part of what will likely be one of the most important days of a couples life. Families brought together by love and unity. It gives me goose pimples to witness it. 

So the first thing that inspires me when designing a cake is….the couple. Getting to know them, what their style is, and talking about what inspires them. I think it’s important to find out what the couple is most excited about in their wedding.

I have a couple who both are chefs and really wanted to incorporate their passion for the culinary arts to be expressed. So we chose to add fresh herbs as greenery for their cake. Something simple, but is very much a part of who they are as a couple.

Lace and other details from a bride’s dress are always favorite. In my opinion, what guests are most excited to see at a wedding is the bride in her dress, and the cake! And when I can incorporate the details of the brides dress into the cake, it’s magical.

Living in Colorado, mountain weddings are a dream! When a couple decides to get married in the mountains, I know right away, they have a love for the majestic natural beauty you get with this state. I’m inspired by rustic Colorado chic. Maybe I carve buttercream to look like a mountain landscape with edible pine cones, or maybe something more simple and elegant to match the surroundings of their event, like a semi-naked cake.

Colors are not just something you look at, but something you feel. Yellow….makes me happy. I am a colorful soul, so I love when a couple comes to me and want to showcase the colors that make them feel good. I’m finding more couples are not so afraid to be bolder. Gold seems to be trendy. so couples are wanting more metallic which I love! Gold and Silver feels luxurious. And who doesn’t want to feel that!

So, while lots of things inspire me when designing a cake for a couple, I’m always inspired by love.”
