    This cake was featured as one of the Daily Top 3 cakes on CakesDecor on July 22, 2014.

    This wedding cake is SO special to me. I did a wedding cake giveaway for a deserving bride, and this is her cake. All the flowers are hand made, and my 12 year old daughter dusted all of them (and did AMAZING!!) The bottom tier was made to look like an old ammunition box (my groom was a hunter) and then was hand-painted. I gave it my all and it took me 110 hours to do, and was SO worth it :) There is also a pic of the sweet couple seeing their wedding cake for the first time…priceless :) Thank you all for sharing in this wonderful moment with me!

    My mama gave me a darling little wooden box a few years ago, so I decided to make it for her for her birthday cake. It is all cake, about 6″ tall, and is elevated like the original box (that pic is included too :), with the bottom panels made from gumpaste. I painted the fondant first then dusted with petal dust. My Grandmother’s favorite flower was a pink rose so I made her some to put on top along with some juniper berries. It took me 23 hours to make (even had exact measurements!), it was a labor of love, and worth every minute of it. She loved it :) Thank you for stopping by!

    I really enjoyed making this cake and all the sugar flowers and twigs. The dots are textured with gold shimmer and the middle tier chevron I free-hand painted. And I LOVE my stand, In the Nude, from Sarah’s Stands :)

    I had so much fun designing this cake, and loved the colors and style of wedding the bride chose. I painted the damask tier (with stencil) and accented with green rosettes and black “leather” dots, all to match the tablecloths and outdoor throw pillows at the reception. The flowers on top are real. Such a fun cake to make :)

    “When searching for a cake designer for my summer wedding in Central Oregon, I initially struggled to find a company that I believed could create the rustic chic wedding cake I dreamed of having. However, upon meeting Sonja, I felt instantly comforted that she not only understood my vision, but was beyond excited to make my dream cake a reality.  As a wedding vendor, Sonja was a treat to work with. She took the initiative to make an appointment with the wedding coordinator of my venue to tour the space and to discuss logistics. I never had to worry that she would be in the right place at the right time. When it came to the big day, I was so excited to see to the cake that Sonja had created for my husband and I. It is hard to describe in words just how beautiful this creation was. Sonja took every idea I gave her and turned it into masterpiece that was above and beyond anything I could have ever imagined.  My “Sweet and Swanky” wedding cake is and will always be one of my favorite memories from my big day.  I wish only the best for Sonja and cannot wait to work with her in the future.”

     “Sonja’s attention to detail and pure artistic talent is unrivaled in Central Oregon and beyond. The wedding cake Sonja created for my husband and I was a tasteful masterpiece. I truly believe that Sweet and Swanky Cakes is the area’s premier wedding cake designer.”
