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

Blind Dinner Date #2 at Wow Factor Cakes

 Our concept for The Blind Folded dinner is to have a unique experience where the setting is intimate and we can enjoy quality time with friends and new acquaintances. We also couldn’t help but share the incredible talents of our friends Jessica & Chef Luca of Passion8 Bistro! They once again tantalized all our senses with a four course meal paired with the perfect wines. Amazing! Passion8 Bistro uses only the finest ingredients provided by local farmers and you can certainly taste it in each unseen bite. We made cake decorators out of our guests with a customized “paint by the numbers” cake that we created, with all guests leaving their mark. Finally, we ended the evening with  a decadent chocolate dessert and sent everyone home with Neet Sweets.

I am so honored to work with such talent here in Charlotte. I loved working with Anne Markey of Favor Me Events. When we asked her to help we were thrilled when she agreed. We shared our vision and Anne created a sexy design that blew us away. She also kept me on task (which I needed badly). Carey Roberts of Carey Roberts Design created gorgeous floral centerpieces filled  with anemones. The table looked incredible-another very talented lady! The intriguing invitations that left our guests wondering and place settings were designed by none other than the talented Debra Hall of Olive Paper. Party Reflections helped create our sexy theme by providing sleek linens and beautiful table settings. A big thank you to Rachel Fesko of Rachel Fesko Photography who shot those amazing images. She is multi-talented  as she can eat blind folded and take pictures at the same time. 

Thank you for all who participated! We appreciate you and it was a pleasure serving you.

  

 

Do you remember these cute lyrics from a song long, long ago. Well, here is our “doggie in the window”. We created this cute doggie cake among other cakes and placed them in our “window” to entertain and inspire visitors and bystanders about cakes. Yes, we get nose and hand prints on the window, and have to clean the windows regularly, but we see it as a small price to pay for appreciation.

Our clients want cakes, like these, where there was great thought and effort into the design of the cake to show the recipient that they are special and that an ordinary cake just wouldn’t do. They want the cake to touch the heart and have a lasting memory attached to them. Special thanks to Love Shutter Photography for their time and pictures.

“Friends are like wine; they get better with age.”

We were asked to make a special cake for a member of a church group. This group meets, shares their joys and struggles, studies the bible, and prays for each other. One of their members who always volunteers to provides all of the refreshments was having a birthday and the group wanted to honor his birthday with a cake of his passion: Wine. We found a quote that epitomized their feelings for their friend, “Friends are like wine; they get better with age.”
