Current Obsession: The Caketress


I’ve worked with Lori from The Caketress in the past, and her work and talent never cease to amaze me. Couture and luxurious are definitely the correct words to describe her confections–but as a person and cake designer–Lori is simply down to earth and very easy to get along with. I was so inspired by her three recent wedding cakes that I felt the need to share.

Lori’s description: It’s almost always that I use smooth fondant for decorating wedding cakes because the artistic possibilities are endless. Christy the bride , however loved the look of rustic rolled white chocolate for her golden wedding cake to be served up north at Taboo Resort. This four tier oval golden cake needed to match the old world feel to her wedding decor , crafted by Muskoka’s leading decor team , Filled with raspberries and white chocolate ganache, this cake screamed decadence. Handed made sugar flowers, each uniquely painted in actual gold finished this beautiful and delicious cake.

Lori’s description: This pink and coral elegant designer wedding cake made it’s way up north for a reception at one of my favorite Muskoka venue’s for nothern weddings , The Rosseau.  The rich flavour of this three tier square cake was an Opera Cake (top two) and the bottom was a Lemon Cake. Both favourites of the Bride and Groom.  The delicate  piping was based on the lovely invitations the bride had choosen, and the falling pink blossoms and coral hydrangeas gave the right pop of colour for their elegant affair up north.

Lori’s description: Wow what a week it was. It was a fun packed week of designing wedding cakes. One them was Meghan and Rob’s contemporary deep purple and apple green wedding cake. This three tier square cake covered  pleated stripes and sugar flowers, was made to flavor one of their favourite sweet treats , a peppermint patty. A fun flavour for this very fun couple.
