Creating a Wedding Cake for BHLDN

Whipped Bakeshop creates Wedding Cake for BHLDN

Here at Whipped, we are huge fans of Anthropologie and their wedding brand BHLDN. Their headquarters are based in Philadelphia's Navy Yard and we've delivered photoshoot cakes to them many times, as well as treats for their amazing crew. However, this is the first time they've asked us to make a full-size REAL wedding cake to photograph and share with their enormous worldwide fanbase. OMG.

I hope you agree that we were up to the challenge! Zoë and our team created the cake you see above, a three-tier painted buttercream cake with textural details and a dramatic double-barrel bottom tier. BHLDN added the adorable flamingo toppers and the gorgeous natural light. Below, you can see our studio shots of the cake with some details and a view of the back of the 360-degree creation.

After we delivered the cake, @cocoloveteas tickled us by sharing photos of the funfetti cake as the BHLDN team sliced it up and ate it. How cool is that? 

Thanks so much to BHLDN for this amazing opportunity. If you're not following @whippedbakeshop and @BHLDN on Instagram already, obviously you need to get on that!

Geode Cookies Rock the World

A few weeks ago, Zoë made some rainbow geode cookies with gold edges. Little did we know that those cookies would become a worldwide hit (at least as far as sparkly cookies go)! I shot a quick video for Instagram, which shocked us by becoming the most-viewed video we have ever put on the platform.

Then, last night, our jaws dropped when Zoë got a LinkedIn notification that the popular UK publication The Daily Mail had featured the cookies in an article about the current geode phenomenon in baking. Whaaat?!? It's just so cool to see something we made have that kind of influence. Hopefully bakers around the world will be inspired to make geode cookies of their own. In any case, I'm super glad that I stopped to shoot that little video as I was running out the door on a delivery! 

The Daily Mail: This dessert rocks! Sparkly geode cookies decorated with colorful rock candy sprinkles are a foodie hit on Instagram

Our Mini Animal Cakes Featured on Wee Wander

Wee Wander Features Whipped Bakeshop Mini Animal Cakes

This week, we had the honor of making FIVE different mini animal cakes for our friend and colleague Carrie Denny, the long-time editor of Philadelphia Weddings Magazine. Carrie was celebrating her baby shower (hooray!) and she used the lil mini cakes as centerpieces for each table.

We were really excited to learn that the cakes got a lovely write-up by Wee Wander, an excellent Philadelphia blog with local resources and activities for parents and kids. If you're a Philly parent, you should probably check them out!

Celebrating Barnet Fair

Check out the sweet treats we brought to the grand opening of Barnet Fair!

This past Saturday, Zoë and our team made treats for the grand opening of Barnet Fair, a spectacular new hair salon in Old City, Philadelphia. We were so happy to support our dear friend Josie Dicarlo! Josie styles and colors Zoë’s hair, and it is more than FAIR to say that Josie is incredible!

Zoë made a fabulous octopus-themed cake that was inspired by Barnet Fair’s light sculpture by chandelier artist Adam Wallcavage.  

We also brought mini logo cupcakes to help show off the design work of True Hand Society. 

And of course macarons. Because macarons. 

Hundreds (maybe thousands?) of people were at the party. Just wow. 

Congratulations to Josie, co-founder Erin and the whole team over at Barnet Fair. You have a tiger by the tail!
