TLC’s Fabulous Cakes: Nadia Cakes

Abby, the owner of Nadia Cakes in Palmdale, California called me up back in May and asked if I could come shoot her fabulous pillow cake just before the big reveal of the cake which she made to be shown on TLC’s Fabulous Cakes show. Of course I was super excited as I always am to shoot Abby’s awesome creations! She revealed the cake as a gift for a young lady at her 16th birthday party.

It was so much fun watching the film crew do their thing and I was even more excited when the TLC film crew asked if they could use my images for the episode! After all TLC is like my favorite channel ever! Isn’t it every girls favorite channel??

I know being on the show has meant a lot to Abby, Carlos and the team at Nadia Cakes. Congrats to you guys on creating a fabulous cake and building a great business in such a short time. You’re cakes, cupcakes and treats look and taste absolutely fabulous!

Here are a few photos from the day of the reveal. After your are done looking at the photos and drooling, go buy a cake or some cupcakes at Nadia Cakes in Palmdale!

Anytime Session: Remi is 1 Year Old!

I met first met Remi and her parents last week when I went to their home to take pictures of Remi for her first birthday. What a cutie pie and such a sweet family! Like most girls who love chocolate, Remi had no problem chowing down on her chocolate cupcake from Nadia Cakes. One of Remi’s favorite characters is Chica from the Sprout PBS channel and it was so cute to watch her hug and love on her custom made stuffed toy of Chica made by Viola Studio on Etsy.com.  Happy Birthday to Remi!

Just Married: A Vintage Luggage Cake

Every time Abby from Nadia Cakes in Palmdale calls me to photograph one of her fabulous creations I am amazed as soon as I see the cake. This last weekend I shot a cake they made for a Bridal Shower to showcase the couple’s travels together and it was stunning!! Every last bit of it is edible and the paintings on the top and side of the cake were all hand painted by Jessica at Nadia Cakes. I love the detail in the cake! Be sure to stop by and see their beautiful store and grab yourself a few cupcakes. They are de-lish!

Antelope Valley Bridal Show

Saturday Eric and I loaded up and went to the Antelope Valley Fairgrounds to set up my booth for the Antelope Valley Bridal Show. I wasn’t sure how I would like but I decided to give it a try and I’m certainly glad I did. Despite the long hours of preparation and skipping a few meals in the rush of things I had a great experience and really enjoyed meeting everyone who stopped by my booth. As a new business in the AV it was nice to meet other vendors from the area and I look forward to keeping in touch with them in the months ahead. Below are a few photos from our fun day!

Although all I had to eat that day was half of my peanut butter mood from Jamba Juice I sure am enjoying the leftover Ghirardelli Cholates :)

My husband (Eric Hayes) and hard working graphic designer made my business cards and accordion fold brochures which I loved! Thanks hun!

The contents on the rest of this page are going to make you drool! Just across the way from us was a booth with some absolutely stunning cakes! I thought that I recognized one of the ladies at the booth and kept telling my husband “I think I know that lady at the awesome cake booth.” I finally got the guts up to go over and say hi and it turns out that I went to a baby shower at her home a few years ago. Her shop is called Nadia Cakes and she’s simply amazing at what she does. Here’s a little article on Nadia Cakes in the Antelope Valley News http://bit.ly/782U8G.

My favorite one!
