Thursday Thrills: Sweet Designs By SugarRobot

A cake is a cake.

Wrong!

Sure, you have your cake flavors, fillings, butter creams, fondants, and general cake shape. But How do you incorporate a personal style into your cake so that it’s just as gorgeous on the outside as it’s delicious on the inside? And, better yet, what if it was all edible?!

Now you can have your cake — and eat it, too!

SugarRobot is our latest and greatest etsy find, and we just have to gush to you about what a unique and beautiful detail piece you must include in your wedding treats!

Lisa’s a sweet chick. No really, she’s totally into sweets. She started out decorating cakes for fun, and now she adds bits of fun and frill, working with brides to customize edible decor from her online store. Lisa also has a chemistry background, so she’s a total pro who knows the science behind the final product. Talk about a perfect concoction of brains and beauty! The Southern Californian sugar artist makes designs fresh to order and her careful packaging makes sure you can receive your perfectly-in tact design no matter where you live.

So how does one get in the business of sugary beauty for cakes? Back in 2002, Lisa the cake decorator needed life-like butterflies for very special cupcakes. After searching high and low, she could not find anything that looked real enough. She did what any determined artist would do: she made her own! They became such conversation pieces, Lisa decided it was fine time to provide them to the public and now her etsy shop, SugarRobot has — pardon the pun — taken flight! These delicate beauties are made of kosher wafer paper and food colors, and each individual item is carefully cut by hand. So as you can see, every detail has been considered for your wedding cake needs!

SugarRobot‘s whimsical decorations are not limited to wedding cakes! Hosting a bridal shower for someone? This would make a lovely addition to the dessert spread! The sugary creations would also make an engagement party or day after brunch very festive! Even an annual birthday cake can share some frosting and candles real estate with a flower cascade or dragonfly — all made out of sugar!

Win your own SugarRobot masterpiece! Enter to win a custom-designed cake flourish by checking out the etsy shop and comment below about your favorite design! You do not have to be Jewish or a current bride to win (hey, anyone can use some extra sugar!). The sweepstakes runs through Sunday night at 11:59 p.m. and the winner will be announced on Monday! Good luck!

    My birthday is coming up on St. Patrick’s Day, so of course I immediately was drawn to the beautiful shamrock lollipops and mint truffles….until I searched the rest of their candies and had to abandon my birthday loyalty and start dreaming of the fleur de sel chocolate caramels…hmmm Calabasas is not that far away. Got to go!

    My sweet tooth is mad at me for not satisfying it with Calabasas Candy Co sooner! Plus, now that Valentine’s Day and all the sweets that came with it have passed, I am experiencing major chocolate withdrawal – Good thing you posted this though, because I’m positive that the Fleur de Sel Chocolate Caramel as well as any and all these dark chocolate yummies would work wonders on my cravings!

  • Linda Liscano says:

    May the bride and groom, bride and bride or groom and groom have a wedding that features these luscious candies. And a marriage that is as sweet and beautiful as these etherial confections. What a wonderful tradtion – think Fiddler on the Roof – to celebrate each year of wedded bliss with Calabasas Candy Company AND your beloved. There should be a “registry” a the store so lovers can sign up for their favorite assortments. What a great gift between husband and wife for birthdays and wedding anniversaries. And for friends and family to give to the couple in the year’s ahead. Who needs diamonds when you can have “chocolate diamonds”.

  • Sharon says:

    Every single confection looks like it’s worth the calories. I’d be happy to try any of them. Delish. Thanks, Wedding Yentas for your yummy information.
