Definitely worth a Double Take

Winter is slowly coming to a close and with that comes wedding season! There are so many things to think about at this time.

Venues, wedding cakes, wedding dresses, favours but yet one of the most important will be your wedding invitations. They set the feel for the entire wedding! They tell your guests if it will be  romantic, over the top, rustic or just simple and clean. The best way to do this is to use an invitation specialist. Over the years we have worked with one of the very best in the industry. The owner Tracy Schabl from Double Take Invitations is not only an absolute pleasure to work with but is a creative genius. We have had the privilege of having her create some beautiful sweet table banners for us, personalized invitations and custom labels. We also have worked together to create some beautiful cakes! When she has completed an invitation for a special event we match the cake so the story is completely told Рfrom start to finish!

Tracy has been mentioned and featured in the wedding ring magazine twice, and has fabulous customer reviews. She is definitely worth a Double Take!



New in 2015

It’s a new year, which means new cake and cupcake trends!

The big trend for weddings in 2015, is matching your wedding dress to your wedding cake! Not only does it give a very fun and flirty effect, it also helps to really set the overall vision and theme of the wedding.

Cupcakes are still very popular for weddings, birthdays and all special occasions. The only difference in 2015 is going with bold flavours and gourmet cupcakes instead of the basics.

Special occasion cakes have been very trendy for the last five years. Now the big trend is matching your cake to your custom invitations, themed sweet tables and themed decorations.

Fondant is now more popular than ever, and now comes in delicious flavours and spectacular colours! Banana, coconut and dark chocolate are just some of the new exciting flavours to try out on your next special occasion cake.

Cheers to 2015!
