There are custom cakes and then there are custom cakes! I created this celebration cake for my friend, the talented Jasmin Singer, who is the Digital Director of VegNews, Co-Founder of Our Hen House, as well as an author, and her love, Moore Rhys’ party in July. They gathered their friends in Marina del Rey in honor of their Las Vegas vows, which had taken place a few months prior.
The celebration was co-hosted by Colleen Holland, owner & publisher of VegNews, who ordered this cake, and by Jane Velez Mitchell, in her beautiful Marina del Rey home. Jane is a television and social media journalist & author, and the founder of #JaneUnChained, a digital news network for animal rights and the vegan lifestyle, which utilizes more than 60 volunteer contributors from around the world to showcase vegan festivals, animal rights conferences, organizations, vegan restaurants, & cooking.
The food was prepared by Megan Sadd, who owns Carrots & Flowers. A few of my favorite brands, Follow Your Heart and Beyond Meat were also a special part of the festivities! This cake was a labor of love and one of my most rewarding creations to date! I am so happy that Colleen had so much excitement and detail in mind for this – it was the epitome of what I envision a celebration cake to be: meaningful, memorable, and, of course, decadent!
We made sure to harmoniously incorporate all the elements of Jasmin and Moore’s relationship… They met in Hollywood, live in Koreatown, got married in Vegas, had their dog in their wedding, and also have a special kitty that is a large part of their lives in Los Angeles. For their wedding, Jasmine carried a kale bouquet, which we had a blast crafting for the cake. To celebrate pride, we also included an array of rainbow hearts. Their dream wedding cake was “over-the-top” and fun, just like the couple, and we did our best to deliver on this!
It all started with a sketch…
As I gathered images of places and things that inspired various parts of this cake, I knew I had my work cut out for me…
Layer by layer, their love story unfolded…
More real-life inspiration…
And, voila! The finished product… enjoyed by all!
