Cake + Flowers Workshop

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.

Floral Galore

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.

Emerald City Celebration

If there ever was a contrast to our beautiful buttercream cakes, it might be this fondant stunner inspired by the Wizard of Oz. It was served to the Glacier Hills Foundation donors and board members at their Emerald City black tie gala.  We had a lot of fun with edible glitter!  We only regret not being able to see it GLOW after dark!

A Fresh Look at Buttercream and Barns

Delivering these buttercream cakes to Cottonwood Barn was so wonderful that we wanted to stay!  We’ve brought cakes to a lot of barn weddings, and this one is exceptional.  It has all of the idyllic charm of rural Dexter, but with the amenities you want for your grandparents.   It was one of the first sunny days after the longest winter EVER.  Outside, friends and family were milling about, laughing and having a good time.  It smelled of fresh beer.  While we were placing fresh flowers, there were familiar faces all around:  Eat Catering pouring champagne, Luna Soiree putting finishing touches on the tables, and Nicole Haley taking photos.
