Have you ever thought, “Our wedding is becoming a three ring circus?!” When Ilse’s fiance, Ken, said just that, the comment inspired this surprise cake for their rehearsal dinner. We’re glad he did too, because she’s quite the stunner.

Maybe after you look at these cake photos, you should check out this YouTube video of an elephant playing with a ribbon. WARNING: Your heart might melt.
We love this pale pink honeycomb beauty for Carly and David’s Planterra wedding. See if you can spot the little gold bee with poured sugar wings. For more of Carly and David’s wedding, check out Viva La Diva’s blog.

We’ve begun to roll out our 2014 fall classes! As we finalize the schedule in the coming weeks, we will continue to update the website– so keep your eyes peeled. In addition to the Piping Workshop and Hand Painted Cake workshop, we will have a few evening cookie decorating classes.
For the holiday season we will offer a Cake-In-A-Jar Workshop, holiday cookie classes, and a holiday cake workshop (maybe another cake and flowers workshop?!)
You’ve met Abby. (Remember, she’s wildly talented?) She does it all – answers phones, bakes tasty cakes, makes magical pop-up dinners. All of us here at Sweet Heather Anne are big fans. We are also big fans of her food, which goes by the name Central Provisions. The company was born in San Francisco a few years ago and is co-owned with her partner and cheese monger extraordinaire, Steve. She’s relentlessly dedicated to seasonal, local ingredients and fresh flavors, and her attention to detail is extraordinary. She and Steve are currently looking for investors for their brick-and-mortar larder, but in the mean time they continue to delight with special pop-up dinners, tasting classes, and now this — the summer picnic basket.
Abby says the picnic baskets have been her most special project to date. They are full of beautiful food created almost entirely from Ann Arbor Farmer’s Market veggies, and include special Sweet Heather Anne macarons. The most wonderful thing is that they become a magical pop-up dinner for two wherever they land. Where will you be when you taste Central Provisions food next? Don’t wait too long. It’s so good.
Enjoy this picnic basket photo story by our beautiful friend, Cat. Cat and her husband operate Sunset Cove Bed & Breakfast, a charming wedding venue in Livingston County.
Follow Central Provisions on Facebook or Instagram for upcoming menus. To order your basket for September 13th, email email@example.com.
We are so happy to share with you Brooke and Sammy’s red carpet wedding at the historic Fox Theater. Every detail, including the towering cake, mirror the opulence of the lobby. The dessert tables were a collaborative effort with the Bride’s Detroit bakery, Love and Buttercream. We hope you’ll agree that the macaron towers are a wonderfully decadent flourish.
The groom’s cake is an edible homage to Detroit today. Look closely to see all of Brooke and Sammy’s favorite haunts! Does it include any of your favorites (or are you more of an American Coney fan)?
We love the cafe lights, fun foral, and big smiles at Jess and Ben’s outdoor Misty Farm wedding. As always Alison and her crew at Viva La Diva knocked it out of the park, and Jess + Nate captured it beautifully. Featured here is our mini-cupcake dessert table, macarons, and a buttercream cutting cake.
We are so excited to announce our first class collaboration presented by Sweet Heather Anne and Bloom Florist Collective. Passionflower will be returning to our shop in June for our Cake + Flowers Workshop.
In this day long event, each student will learn the basics of buttercream layer cakes and floral arranging in order to create her own lovely, two-tiered cake, decorated with seasonal floral garlands. Each cake is a lemon sour cream cake, filled with raspberry curd, lemon curd, and vanilla bean buttercream. Beginners welcome!
The Espresso Bar coffee, fresh pastries and vegetarian-friendly lunch will be provided.
The proportions of this horizontal striped buttercream cake were just perfection, the 360° floral placement is breathtaking, and these photos by Lauren Gabrielle are beautiful. Macarons were a sweet final touch on each place setting. We hope you enjoy these photos of Lori and Josh’s Lovett Hall reception as much as we do.
