Roses

Let’s rewind a few months back where we were contacted by Crystal from Amazae Special Events to do this Elegant Rose cake for Marc and Andrea Tuttle’s wedding at the St. Claire in SJ. This was not Andrea and Marc’s initial design until we were approach by a reality television program that wanted to see some sketches of wedding cakes that we were going to be producing and they needed to be very detailed, well Andrea and Marc’s cake was perfect to create a more detailed design for. Unfortunately, we were not selected to be a part of the program for this season and for this reason the bride and groom went back to their original design for their wedding cake. Unbeknownst to the bride her mother called in a week before her wedding and wanted to upgrade the cake as a surprise for her daughter and son- in- law to be for their wedding day.

Each and every gumpaste rose and leaf were handmade and airbrushed in shades of ivory and champagne by our incredible bakers. As you will notice there are accents of black folded “tufts” of fondant to look like pieces of fabric scattered throughout the array of roses. The bottom tier features a fondant scrollwork pattern painted in metallic champagne. The flavors and fillings that this cake was made up of are; top tier: Tuxedo with white chocolate mousse with fresh strawberries, middle tier: Chocolate filled with Mocha Truffe & Fudge split, and bottom tier: White with Raspberry Cream Cheese. The beautiful riser that the cake is sitting on was handmade by Nicole Ha to top of this gorgeous cake. Thank you Crystal Lequang (http://amazaespecialevents.com/) for also helping us with the design of this cake and introducing us to Andrea and Marc, Nicole Ha (http://www.nicoleha.com/)for the beautiful riser, Jody Schultz for making your daughters dream come true, and our precious couple Marc and Andrea.

Congratulations on your big day and life together from the entire team at Jen’s Cakes!

Cupcakes, Cupcakes,Cupcakes!

A cupcake also known as a fairy cake (who knew) or a patty cake, “we will make them as fast as we can” (haha I could not resist) are designed for your own personal enjoyment. Cupcakes are starting to take over the Wedding / Special Occasion’s World. Just stop and think about all the weddings and special occasions you have attended in the past year and how many of them had cupcakes? People often call us asking if we sell them in our shop daily but unfortunately we do not. We actually do sell them daily at an adorable little store by the name of Betroth located in the heart of Willow Glen inside of the Garden Theater. If you are looking for some of these tasty treats give them a call at 408.289.1962 and you will be enjoying your cupcakes in no time at all.

Kobe Bryant Groom’s Cake

Jae’s adorable fiancée; Karman (now wife) contacted us not only to do their beautiful wedding cake display for their wedding day, but to also create a groom’s cake replicating Jae’s favorite basketball star Kobe Bryant!! Half of the cake was our delicious red velvet with cream cheese and the other half was our tuxedo cake with cookies and cream filling. What could be better basketball and food all in one = a man’s dream come true! We received an email this week from the bride stating that Kobe made it home safely and is now sitting on Jae’s shelf.
