  • 🎉CONE DROP CAKE🎉
Did a test bake of this beauty this weekend for a beauty's 13th birthday! 
Her favorite chocolate cake with vanilla buttercream, dripping with chocolate ganache and rainbow non-pareils! We were inspired by the amazing #cakeboss @katherine_sabbath and can't wait to make more of these so @momokittymonster can flex her creative cake muscles!

Loved our bride's choices today: Bubbly, Vanilla Chai Latte, Key Lime Pie accented with gold glitter, and Oreo Cheesecake! All mini cupcakes on a traditional tower sitting on a gold table runner among the beautiful art deco backdrop that is the G.Fox Ballroom Mezzanine. Just gorgeous! Congrats Marissa and Nick!✨💏

Research and development day at @stonycreekbeer in anticipation for our newest partnership with them! Brewery scheduled to open in March and they will be carrying a signature #beercakes lineup from us featuring their flagship DockTime, a rotating seasonal, and one from their Flip the Bird series (also rotating). We couldn't be more thrilled or excited about this! The brewery is beautiful and going to set the standard for the CT beer scene. More to come...
