We have a new contributor to the Pink Blossom List and it is the famed, Northern California cake maker extraordinaire, Sonya Hong of Butterfly Cakes. We couldn't be more honored to have Sonya join our group of wedding insiders. Butterfly Cakes remains one of the most cherished and beloved cake studios in the Bay Area. Sonya churns out homemade, butter, delicious cakes that taste great and look even better. Her signature style is pretty, elegant, understated, and feminine.
For her first post, Sonya wanted to focus on colorful cakes, most especially, a great summer. She writes, "trendy colors come and go (we’ve all seen the Tiffany blues, the reds and browns, the yellow and grey, etc.), but one thing is for certain: pink will always be beautiful and feminine". We agree! Here's two of Sonya colorful, "pink" creations.
With the help of event planners, Sarah Sofia , Sonya designed this four tiered wedding cake for a lovely Atherton, California bride. The wedding was gorgeous and stunning, and the theme color was pink. Everything in the wedding was sophisticated and glamorous, so the cake was the one area where they had a little fun: hearts, X’s and O’s, and simply the word LOVE. It is sweet and undeniably feminine, yet the controlled use of colors and lack of flowers keep the cake sophisticated and clean.(Image to the left).
Sonya's second cake is equally whimsical and girly that she created for a bridal shower. Sonya adds, "lingerie is always sexy, but in the color pink, it’s sweet. Zebra patterns keep it lively and a little on the “wild” side".
Thank you Sonya for your post and we look forward to more inspirations. Sonya not only runs a very successful cake studio in Northern California but she is a mother of two boys and a cake blogger. Sonya's blog, The Beehive, features her wonderful, fanciful creations. Don't miss it.
