Sculpted Cakes ~ Uber Launch Party

celebration cakeWe recently had the pleasure of creating a very unique sculpted cake for a corporate client that just recently  came into the Queen City, Uber Charlotte.  After having huge success in major cities throughout the U.S. and the globe, Uber has officially launched in Charlotte! If you are not familiar with Uber and their new way have helping people get around , definitely be sure to check into them and see how they can change the way you get from point a to point b.  We were thrilled to work with them on their recent launch party, held at 5 Church Charlotte.  It allowed us the opportunity to get really creative with a large scale sculpted cake, we designed a 4ft long car modeled after one of the new NASCAR Gen6 race cars for them to really create a focal point at their event.  We love to design unique sculpted pieces, and this one provided us with the opportunity to really get creative!  Thank you again to Uber Charlotte for the opportunity, we are excited they are here in town and know they will be a huge asset to resolving the way people get around town.  Enjoy these images taken by Catch Light Studio.  

We love to work on creative and unique designs, so be sure to give us a call if you have social or corporate event and are looking for a one of a kind dessert! Visit us for more ideas on what we can create for your: corporate, social and wedding events here

Cake Fit for Royalty

Wow Factor Cakes

We were recently approached by a client who wanted to have an unusual celebration cake designed for an upcoming Birthday, a replica of the famous St. Edwards Crown, a priceless heirloom piece originally designed for the British monarchy in 1661.  The St. Edwards Crown may look familiar if you’ve tuned into Royal news lately, as it is the official crown of Queen Elizabeth, who just celebrated the 60th anniversary of her coronation last week.  The Crown made a rare public appearance out for the coronation jubilee celebrations last week, which marks the first time in 60 years of it being seen formally outside of the crown jewels collection.  The Crown also made it’s appearance right here in the ‘Queen City’, in the form of cake! We love to create designs that are unique and can be seen as true works of art, we think this lovely crown replica definitely ‘takes the cake’!  Call us today to design your own unique specialty or celebration cake: 704.654.0598, and visit our site for more examples of specialty cakes here
