2011 Ottawa Suhaag Wedding Show
Last weekend Mirch Masala Radio hosted the 2011 Suhaag Wedding Show at the Hampton Inn in Ottawa. It was a wonderful mesh of Vendors from both Ottawa and Toronto showasing all the good things they have to offer for the upcoming wedding season. ClaribelCakes was there and I brought along a couple of my beautiful girlfriends, Juthila and Sagal and my gorgeous sister Ramona to help with the event.
Our booth featured 3 large prints from the Claribel Cupcakes Photoshoot with NZPhotography, and 3 brand new Cake Designs created specifically for the Suhaag Show along with some very tasty Lemon Cake with Passionfruit Swiss Meringue Buttercream. The beautiful linens for our booth were provided by Sizzle with Decor (A BIG THANK YOU!!).
The first cake was a sweet little 3-tier design with embossed buttons hand-painted in gold around the middle tier. The tiers were finished in a sweet cherry blossom ribbon and the cake accented with a large Magnolia flower.
The second cake used a top-tier from a cake near and dear to my heart. You’ll remember the beautiful wedding of Shirin and Rasel. I was able to keep the top tier from their Wedding Cake knowing I would use it again as a show cake. I used it to create this beautiful 3-tier design. I separated the 1st and 2nd tiers with a small riser and wrapped a beautiful draping crystal ribbon around so it hung between the tiers. I added a lovely diamond embossed pattern to the middle tier and finished the 3rd tier off with some pretty Dogwood flowers and leaves hand painted in 24K edible gold and some blingy hot pink ribbon.
The final cake was my sweet Pillow Design. I did a small 3-tier with the embossed diamond pattern on the 1st tier. Beautiful fabric tassles hung from the 2nd tier with a lovely hand painted gold border design and the 3rd tier was embossed with some hand painted gold scrollwork. I finished off the 3-tiers with some small pearls and added another beautiful Magnolia as the topper to this cake.
All in all 3 very sweet cakes. All in varying shades of pink, and all accented with gold and ivory. The booth looked fantastic and we were able to make some great contacts.
Thanks to all those that came to the show!
