Real Wedding :: Cherie + Cameron

Monday, September 9th, 2013

San Diego is the perfect place for a destination wedding, and for the couple featured in this REAL wedding, San Diego was an easy choice!  Cherie and Cameron are both New Yorkers, and they wanted the San Diego sun to be their backdrop for their beautiful nuptials!

Their wedding took place on a perfect San Diego summer day (no humidity like there is now!).  The gorgeous waterfront Bahia Resort Hotel hosted and catered.  Appropriately enough, the couple’s theme was nautical. Lots of blues, yellows and whites, and every element perfectly coordinated with the couple’s sea-loving theme. They were married outside, with the water behind them and palm trees giving the illusion of their own, private outdoor oasis.

Being as the couple was not local, they relied on communicating with wedding vendors via email and over the phone, so for Cherie and Cameron it was important to find wedding vendors they could trust. Fortunately, when it came to the cake, they had us!  We were pretty stoked about how it turned out, and the couple was too! Anchors aweigh!

Bacon lovers unite at the Del Mar Fair (I mean, they literally do unite!)

Tuesday, June 11th, 2013

Bacon and beer; the two best “B”s come together for this epic event: the Big Bite Bacon Fest.  Taking place this Sunday, June 16th, at the Del Mar Fair,  Farmer John’s Bacon Fest features a collection of all the best bacon foods, in addition to 50 craft beers, all available for tastings, samplings and enjoyment.

Yet this event is not just good food and drink; the Bacon Fest also happens to feature a “Bacon Lovers Wedding Ceremony.”  No, we are not kidding.  A real couple has been chosen to get married at the event!  And, the way that Sweet Cheeks Baking is involved: we are providing the bacon lovers’ pork-loving wedding cake!

Stay tuned for the pictures of this extra special wedding cake!  And, if your a Star 94.1FM listener, tune in on Wednesday, June 12th at 8:30am for a segment, which includes us, about the oddly unique weekend coming up!

We love helping our clients plan for their wedding, so when they’re wedding is especially unique and incorporates their culture, we get even more excited to cater to their wishes.  This was exactly the case for a recent Indian wedding of ours.  For this special couple, we made a cake with a traditional Mendhi (Indian) design in red icing on fondant.  The flavor: a delicious citrus cake with passion fruit curd and lemon butter cream!

Besides being delicious, the cake fit perfectly with the couple’s Indian-themed wedding day.  The day also gave us the opportunity for a fun photo shoot, complete with elephants and elegance!  To see more of these images, check out the following magazines, which will feature the wedding in upcoming issues:

Hotel Del Coronado Weddings

Wednesday, May 2nd, 2012

Sweet Cheeks is so blessed to have been chosen to produce fabulous wedding cakes for Hotel Del Coronado weddings. What a stunning venue with outstanding service, amazing vendors, and happy couples!

Recently our cakes were featured in multiple photo shoots at “The Del,” while they were showcasing some of their cool reception rooms. We wanted to highlight some of our team’s creative designs through the gorgeous photos taken by Pam Scott Photography.

*The beach wedding set up with Pacific ocean blues & natural driftwood (decor by Dawn Stone of Embellishmint Floral & Event Design),  made Kristin’s white on white 3-D flower mini cake shine like a gorgeous addition to the sea scape. This cake design was chosen by Dawn Stone especially for this setting she created with the sea fans, shells, and wood pieces…very cool.

*Bejeweled as its namesake Crown Room, our handmade sugar jewels sparkled around the shoulders of the 3rd tier with help from pink & blue uplighting. I had this vision of the jewels “hugging the shoulders” of this single tier to enhance the design and focus it all in one spot. Sogoal & Jessica made of those sugar gems in the kitchen during a crazy week of client appointments, and they just mastered them for my design. The Crown Room is the true GEM of the Del’s venue sights, although not the only beautiful location by far.

*Given a second layout in the Crown Room to work with Natasha from Classic Creations and her lush array of all white hyacinth, we captured an all white approach to nature with the butterfly wedding cake design. Sogoal had also hand painted monarch butterflies for this cake design, but the setting in the room begged for an all-white look for these photos…more with the fully detailed monarchs can be seen under Wedding Cakes on our website gallery.

*Rippling water lights in the Empress Room enhanced both the oceanic beauty and movement of underwater sea kelp, hand painted in gold & copper over royal icing piped on aqua fondant. This is my own favorite design, having a love for all things NATURE in design. It is a toss up between feathers and kelp, hand painted in copper and gold on pale aqua fondant. The moving lights that streamed through the room during the shoot gave it a fascinating feeling of underwater movement, truly one of the COOLEST designs in lighting I’ve seen for a wedding reception.  Stunning flowers like these phaleanopsis orchids in the room were provided by LaVonne of Adorations Botanical Artistry.

*Finally, an all-white, delicate setting of lace overlays and dusty rose pink in the Carousel Room provided the perfect stage for a resplendent, contemporary shaped white wedding cake.  Jessica’s pink, hand made flower on an extra tall middle tier and the striped effect on the top gave this cake a very modern yet classic feel. She added softness to the contemporary design with the mini white florets on the bottom tier, which coupled beautifully with the lace overlays.

Brian Worley of Your Bash in Los Angeles designed the basis of the photo shoots, such a beautiful eye for the elegant.  Appropriately fabulous linens were provided by both Wildflower Linens and La Tavola Linens.  All in all, a REALLY EXTRAORIDNARY SETTING with beautiful “models” and a gifted photographer. Thank you, Hotel Del Catering Team and Pam Scott Photography for supplying these great pics for us to share!
