Eventful Events

This past weekend we participated in the LA Cupcake Challenge. It was a great event! Tons of awesome people (over 600 to be exact!), great music and tons of delicious cupcakes of course! While the results have yet to be posted, I wanted to share some shots from the event.We made Apple Spice Cupcakes with Brown Sugar Buttercream

Each cupcake was topped with a handmade chocolate leaf

Another fun event we were involved in recently was a cake demo for a Mother/Daughter event at a local elementary school. It was a two-part demo. In the first segment I showed everyone how to make fancy looking cakes at home that don’t require special tools or techniques. I then showed what goes into making an Urban Sweets cake. It was fun to see the moms just as excited as the girls!

Tea and Tulips

There is definitely a lot of exciting stuff going on at Urban Sweets! First off we have updated our website www.urbansweetsbakery.com

We have updated our categories and photos – definitely worth taking a click-about

Next, I am excited to announce that Urban Sweets will be participating in the LA Cupcake Challenge this weekend! 500 people will be there to taste and vote on their favorite cupcakes. Stop by our booth to say Hi and try one of our signature winter flavors!

And since it has been a while since I have posted about our cakes, here is a cake we did for a 60th Anniversary. The couple are big tea drinkers and love tulips, so we incorporated both concepts into the design.

I’m a sucker for detail, so here are some close-ups of the cake.

NY Cake Convention – Part II

The other piece of the Cake Convention that made it such an incredible experience were the demonstrations and celebrity chefs that attended.

Cake Opera Co. based in Canada, made the trip down to show us their specialty – edible cake topper busts. They are outstandingly talented and bring a new edge to our art form.

We were able to watch a live cake competition. The artists had 4 hours to complete their New York themed design.

This is the winning design

It is hard to remember is how fragile cake really is. After judging, the face of the wining cake began to fall.

Dianna Lopez, the winner, shows how to take anything in stride. She had such a wonderful, playful attitude about the fondant falling.

Zilly Cakes, famously known for creating the Obama mosaic out of cupcakes, created a gorgeous cupcake mosaic of Kirsten Dunst from Marie Antoinette.

Here’s a closeup of what each cupcake looks like that forms the amazing masterpiece.

It was so wonderful to be able to meet and hear from some great chefs in the industry.
