Modern Beach, Masquerade, Ottoman
Christopher Garren’s Cakes brings a beach-inspired design to life; the LA bakery makes a Masquerade-themed cake and struggles with fragile decorative elements; the NY bakery creates a cake that replicates a whimsical piece of furniture.
Christopher Garren’s Cakes is asked to incorporate a fun, beach motif into a wedding cake. The clients trust Chris implicitly, and give him full creative license on the project. The only item they give him for design inspiration is a gift bag, which appealed to them because of its colors, clean lines, and flowers. To bring his vision to fruition, Chris wants to try out some new techniques. But will the learning curve for these new skills throw Chris and his team off their schedule? Between the new techniques and the complicated detail work, will they miss their deadline?
Reva at Merci Beaucoup Cakes designs a large wedding cake that incorporates the "Masquerade" theme of the couple’s wedding. The colors are bold—black, white, and red. Reva also wants to incorporate a "collar" around two of the layers, and plans to construct the collars out of "pastillage." "Pastillage" is a sugar-based dough which dries quickly into rigid, decorative forms that are often quite fragile. But neither she or Marc are proficient at working with “pastillage”, so will they succeed in executing her design?
Lauri of Cake Alchemy has earned a reputation for making wedding cakes that are art pieces. Her client is a bride who has an unusual request: she wants to surprise her husband-to-be with a groom’s cake inspired by a piece of furniture! But it’s not just any piece of furniture, it’s a whimsical and eye-catching footstool created by one of the groom’s favorite design companies, MacKenzie-Childs. Lauri and her team are excited to re-create this unique piece of art in cake.
