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!
Alexis Sturgeon tells us…
My mission as your appointed cake designer is to give each couple the most unforgettable experience when designing, tasting, customizing and finally unveiling to see the most beautiful cake for their wedding. Cakes by Alexis Sturgeon will create designer, artistic, sculptural, classic, and romantic cakes that will truly be a work of art. Each design is hand made using modern and trend setting techniques, keeping conscious that the inside of the cake should be just as beautiful as the outside. Only quality ingredients will be used! As a professional cake decorator with a pastry chef background, I offer a delectable cake menu for you and your guests.
Choose Cakes by Alexis Sturgeon and I personally, will give you an exclusive, one of a kind experience during your consultation. This includes hand drawn renderings of your cake that you will get to keep upon booking with Cakes by Alexis Sturgeon. You will indulge in a tasting that will consist of gourmet Parisian Pastry inspired cake flavors and fillings that you, the client, will have a role in deciding the pairing flavors. Finally, you will receive a desired look to your cake that will forever be remembered and discussed by guests at your wedding for years to come.
