Behind the scenes at Kylie Cakes
Over the years of photographing weddings, my appreciation for fellow vendors has continued to grow. When photographing the details, from the flowers to the stationary, I always think about the bride’s vision when planning, and the work and hours that the designer has put in to make those visions come to life, and aim to photograph it to do it justice.
This week I spent the morning with Kylie from Kylie Cakes to get a glimpse of the work the goes into each cake masterpiece. Kylie can multi task, that’s for sure! Needing to juggle a couple of orders while cakes cooled and fondants set, she was baking up a storm! Who knew there was an ideal time of day to work with fondant! I watched in awe as Kylie layered a cake, covered it in fondant, created some delicate flowers and whipped up a bride and groom. It was like magic, if I blinked, I would have missed it. She worked with such speed, precision and passion and knows all the tricks of the trade. From traditional to quirky cakes, Kylie is in her element when she has the opportunity to custom design a wedding cake to suit your taste and style. She excels in personalizing bride and groom cake toppers to mimic you and your hubby to be.
