wickedly awesome cakes-for real...

i love cake. i know, unusual right? ha, not really. but like a lot of people, i love watching all the cake decorating shows on tv (my favorite is probably ace of cakes, seems like such a fun shop to work in). anyways, i was flipping through the people magazine last night and it had a spread about Nicole Richie's (let it be said-i love her) wedding. then i saw a picture of the cake and read that it was done by Cake Opera Co. and i couldn't believe it! that is a toronto company and i fell in love with her work about a year ago when i saw the artist (Alexandria Pellegrino) on a food network challenge. they were doing cakes for alice & olivia and hers was amazing. i immediately googled her company when they said she was from toronto. her work is absolutely unreal. seriously, check out her site; it's been in my 'favorites' on my computer ever since, in hopes that one day, she will be able to do a cake for me  ;)
the last time i looked at the site, she had only contact info and no store, but now there is! i may have to make my way there sometime for a cupcake or treat! anyways, i just thought that it was really cool that Nicole Richie had a toronto artist do her cake. she obviously flew her out there, the cake was not shipped ha. oh, and the cake was also red velvet...drool (i'm sure you all know by now, red velvet is the only way to go with me-i die for well done red velvet)

here are just two of her cakes from her site (there used to be a lot more than the 6 or so that are shown now)...

gorgeous right? i'm obsessed...especially because i love black and white cakes and that's what i want for my wedding one day :) (via)

speaking of cake, i'm off to roll 60 or so cake balls now! (cake was made last night, labor comes now).
but first, have a latte while i wrap my gifts :)

I would LOVE to try making a cake like that at home but I can just foresee massive amounts of wasted icing...

Of course, I could EAT the wasted icing...

Hmm!
