A Designer Cake Fit for a Gala!

As The Dessert Divas, we were able to provide a cake for the 10th Annual New Hanover Regional Medical Center Founders Gala. This event was held to help raise money for the Betty Cameron Women's and Children's Hospital.

The gala was held on January 23, 2010 at
the Air Wilmington Hangar

The day before the Gala we went to the hangar to see how the design team was decorating the event site so that we could decorate the cake to reflect the color and theme of the event...

...and then we decorated the cake in an orange and turquoise mosaic design accented with rhinestones to reflect the colors of the bejeweled club atmosphere.

Rebekah and Jennifer posed with our 5 Tier Chocolate & Vanilla cake that was frosted with our signature Italian Butttercream.

Jennifer was accessorized by Jess James, our local "Style Girl" to reflect the color and theme of the party!

 We were so pleased that Mayor Bill Saffo and Renee stopped by for a piece of cake and conversation!

"Party on the Moon"-a fabulous group from our home town of Atlanta-- got the party started!
"Stop in the name of Love!" but they didn't stop for 3 hours straight!!!
(and dancing in those heels non-stop!)

The Divas do Designer Desserts for the launch party of "Style Girl" Jess James' "FASHION FIX!"

It was our privilege to be a part of the team that 
put together to create the launch party for her
weekly E-Zine

Our first challenge was to create a Designer Dessert fashioned after
Jess' new logo created by graphic designer Lindsay Waltz of B Branded.

We were able to replicate Jess' familiar logo, 
a mother-of-pearl button that had belonged to Jess' Grandmother,
and apply them around the cake, adding a black fondant "ribbon" at the "hem" of each tier.
We created a cake topper out of sugar paste replicating the new logo,
pink & black flats with bows.

Jess asked us to do the party's event design 
and we began at the bar,
transforming it into a fashion themed display with our 
"Two-Bites" squares of  Praline & Chocolate Ganache, Margarita,
and both Chocolate and Vanilla Cake frosted with our
Signature Italian Buttercream.

Jess' launch party was held at Odessa, an event venue overlooking downtown Wilmington, owned by her friend and fashion partner, Shannon Dunne, of  "James + Dunne"

 Sitting in front of the mirrored stage backdrop we created,
Jennifer was modeling the "stylings" of Jess James.
Jennifer, the mother of two, said she had never felt so "hip!"

Jess had asked Jennifer to do some on-camera interviews
(She got to be the "Samantha Harris" for the evening!).

You can see all the coverage of this event on 
the "Launch Party" video, attached at the bottom of this Post.
It was filmed and produced by
Dan Burke.

Jess asked Foz of Z107.5 and Rebekah to MC the program for the evening.

The Grand Finale was the unveiling of the
New Look of the Fashion Fix!

Lisa Brown, our friend in pink (in the midst of the sea of black & white),
was the photographer for the evening.
All of these photos were done by our Bella Rose!
