Designer Wedding Cakes by Alexis Sturgeon

Well, it is a bit after lunch here at BHL headquarters, and we are always searching for something sweet and savory to eat.  Today, something sweet and amazing has landed in our inbox which we can not stop drooling over. So, if you are  just getting back from lunch or an afternoon snack, we like to share some phenomenal cakes for your wedding loving hearts…or dessert loving hearts. We’ve got Cakes by Alexis Sturgeon here to make your afternoon a bit sweeter, and make your mouth water. Alexis Sturgeon is a fabulous and talented cake designer based out of Los Angeles, California.  These cakes are not only beautiful, but they are so delicious that our eyes roll back in our heads. So often, that we sometimes miss the fantastic art pieces in front of our eyes. For real though, when we are not enjoying the mouthwatering treats, we can stare for hours at these designer cakes. That is why we  had to devote an entire afternoon for admiring, loving, and drooling. We have also picked Cakes by Alexis Sturgeon for our vendor hot pick!  Make sure you save enough time to read all that Alexis had to say about the thrill of cake design, before your sugar-induced coma sets in. She is such a sweetie!bridal-hot-list-vendor-hot-pick

A Slice of Cake Does the Body Good

I love  sweet treats, especially cake! I had the pleasure of doing a cake tasting at Christopher Garren’s Let Them Eat Cake. This place is super cute, and the cakes, well of course are amazing!

When I walk in, I am immediately fall in love with the decor. Very vintage and stylish.

After admiring the place, I am seated to do some cake tasting. At this point, I am super excited! Come on, its cake, what is not to be excited about? They brought me two slices of cake, one was Red Velvet, and the other was Lemon Framboise. The two most popular flavors right now.

Want to know what I thought of the taste? Words can not describe, but my facial expresion can!

Did I love it? What do you think?

YES! OMG, it was so delicious! My favorite cake flavor was the Lemon Framboise. It has a layer of raspberry cream and lemon cream. I was in heaven, cake heaven!

It was not only the slice of cake which blew me away, but  I admired the fabulous cakes which were on display. Check them out! By the way, they are all edible.

I had the pleasure of meeting Christopher Garren. What a nice guy! He told us about the cakes and how they never make the same cake twice! All cakes are unique and that is what makes them so fabulous. Some cakes take 20 hours, and others up to 50 hours! There is so much detail that goes into these cakes, and you can see why. I was really “Wowed”.

As beautiful and detailed as as the cake was on the outside, the taste inside was as impressive! SO GOOD! My thought was that the cream did not feel heavy like most cake icings do. I did not feel like washing my piece of cake down with a glass of milk or water. The cake taste was so light, but flavorful at the same time.

If you want a good looking and good tasting cake, then I would recommend Christopher Garren’s for your next event!
