Things we are passionate about:

1. The Moist Factor: If you have met me, then there are some things you know about me. I carry peanut butter in my purse. I have read the Harry Potter series sixteen times. I always drive as fast as humanly possible. And I hate, hate, hate dry cake. I would rather eat sawdust than touch dry cake with a ten-foot pole. I have spent years (and I really do mean years) working on techniques to make my cake as moist as possible. Taste to believe, my friends. Taste to believe.

2. Marshmallow Fondant: You may be asking yourself “what the heck is this ‘fondant’?” Fondant is a type of frosting that you can roll out like cookie dough and place over cakes, usually wedding cakes, that makes it look nice and smooth. Like this:

Unfortunately, the majority of fondant in the world is McNasty. It is ordered through restaurant supply companies in huge buckets and I would say it tastes like a cross between playdough and chewable flour. Brianna and I couldn’t bring ourselves to actually serve this to human beings, so we have found a fabulous recipe for fondant. It is made out of marshmallows, and we make it fresh for each cake we make. Not to mention we layer on a generous amount of buttercream underneath the fondant anyway. Best of both worlds!

3. Affordable: There are about a million and twelve reasons that our prices are much more affordable than most other bakeries. We do all the work between the two of us− we don’t even have little cake elves running around our kitchen making things for us. We save a ton of money with our marshmallow fondant. It costs us exactly four dollars to make five pounds of fondant. Guess how much it costs from a restaurant supply store? Go ahead, guess. Twenty five dollars! That’s like a billion percent markup! I tend to exaggerate. And most importantly, Brianna and I love what we do, which is more rewarding than money ever will be (except, of course, when money buys you new Anthropologie shoes or a trip to Disneyland).

It's Business Time

     These are our business cards! They are super cute and I ordered a thousand of them (overkill, perhaps?), so if you see me walking down the street, feel free to stop and mug me- you will leave about twenty business cards richer. And with my annual Disneyland Pass.

Hello! This is Morgan speaking (typing?)… I just wanted to post a little note to say “hi, we make cakes, they are delicious.” Brianna and I are not new to the cake world- I have been making cakes for more than five years now and we have both spent a ton of time in the professional cake industry. We are, however, new to the owning-your-own-business world. We just received our fancy business cards this week (I will eventually attempt to post a picture of one), we’ve set up a professional e-mail account, and we also received a business license (legit!).
I will put up another post shortly describing a little more about us and our cakes. We are also working on making that tiny slideshow in the corner a bit bigger so you can actually see what our cakes look like, so stay tuned.

Please feel free to e-mail or call us with any questions or comments, we'd love to hear from you!
