Hand Painted Gradient Wedding Cake |Houston,TX

Hi All!

gradient watermarked

It has been quite a while since our last post. We just wanted to post a little something about the above cake. This cake is completely hand painted, and actually only uses TWO colors, even though you see four. It was inspired by acrylic painting, so we used the principles of color mixing to get this effect. The purple you see in the middle is just the two principal colors mixing. This is one of your favorites!

Specs on this cake:

Feeds 50, All Red Velvet, $250.

Thursday Feature: Classic Print Meets Classic Wedding.

houndstooth

Today, I thought that I would share a bit about this new cake. The middle tier likely looks familiar to you, its houndstooth!! This  print is so classic, it is definitely one of my favorites! What I love most about my job, and cake artistry in general is that there are no rules! Who says you cant put houndstooth print on a cake and make it look clean? Whats even MORE exciting, is that its all edible! (Minus the hydgrangea bouqet on the top). The accent color here was emerald green!

Cake Feature: Anchors Away

Anchors Away

This wedding cake was made for a couple who enjoys boating! It is how they met, so they wanted their wedding cake to reflect that. The colors of the wedding were navy and silver. In this cake, we decided to use silver as an accent color. The bottom ruffles which are made out of our yummy fondant, have silver tips. The monogram at the top is also painted to silver to be sure that we tied in all the colors of the wedding! They were such a pleasure to work with, and loved their cake!

If you are getting married soon, email us at morgan@morganscakery.com to get started. We created something custom for them, we can do the same for you! Visit www.morganscakery.com for more information.

About Fondant…and Why it doesn’t HAVE To Taste Bad!

Hello, all! Today, I want to talk to you about FONDANT. The word that strikes fear into customers hearts all over the world. Its nasty, Its got a weird texture, It has a smell, I have heard all of that. And frankly, I think its really unfair! Fondant is a really great product, and its so unfortunate that the taste and smell of one main company has ruined its reputation in the eyes of many!

So lets start with this, why do I need fondant? Well techincally, you dont NEED it. Although with some designs you do. Some designs are handpainted, airbrushed, embossed, this requires the decorator to use fondant. Although there are SOME designs that could be done in buttercream only. It also acts as a protective layer to the cake!

Then, there is the issue of asthetics. Fondant gives you a very smooth porcelain finish, that can not be matched. It is just beautiful. Personally, I really prefer the look of fondant, although some designs can be done in buttercream.

Lastly and most importmant. Fondant is NOT inherently “nasty”. There are SEVERAL brands that taste amazing, as well as any homemade recipe. I make my own fondant from scratch, and add white chocolate to it. It tastes great, and all my clients love it! I have never had a customer complain about the taste of my fondant.

Hopefully this blog post sheds some light on this issue, and encourages you to give the fondant one more try!

Check out some of my cakes at www.morganscakery.com all of the cakes posted are covered and decorated with fondant!

Until next time!

The “I Cant Make That Cake Exactly” Conversation, and Why It Is Necessary

Ever so often, I get a client that sends me a picture saying they want a cake *EXACTLY* like a picture. Well, that is not possible. So I thought I would talk just a bit about the two biggest reasons exact replicas can not be done (in most cases).

1)- Materials: EVERY cake artist all over the world uses something different. It is sort of like snowflakes, no two are alike. We all have different recipes, different tools, some make their own fondant, some use premade fondant. Some use a meringue buttercream, some use a ganache. Some have professional equipment, sme do not. All these things can produce different results.

2)Skill Level- This is may be the one people do not like to admit, but is true haha. There are certain things other cake artists do, that I can not. There are certain things I can do, that other cake artists can not. There is where a portfolio review comes in! Take a look at the work of the artist you are looking to hire, is there level of work acceptable to you? If so relax. You will more than likely love the cake!

Now of course, there are exceptions to EVERY rule. Some artists may be able to produce an exact replica, if they say the can, proceed but be weary. Again, look at the work! Personally, I aim to give every client a new cake. I understand that there is a theme for the party, but every one deserves a custom cake!

Until next time,

Morgan
