We’re continuing our Oklahoma Cake Artist Spotlight Series with none other than Allison Dake of Brown Egg Bakery! Ely Fair Photography captured this incredible local talent at Waters Edge Winery. Allison’s unique and original designs never cease to amaze us. Stay tuned as we continue to share more incredible Oklahoma wedding cake artists!

About the Design
I’ve been dreaming of a design that included some amazing hand painted gold Empress Cicadas that I saw for sale online. I was toying with the creative process on how to apply bugs to cake…and, still have the end result look appealing. I kept the overall design simplistic, and really put the extra time and detail into the Cicadas. I wanted them to be the standout, yet remain soft and approachable.

About the Artist
I look at cake as an opportunity to showcase flavors! When I design cake flavors, I put a massive amount of time into creating and perfecting the flavor profiles of each cake. I would like to think I create cake for foodies…people who care about the way the cake tastes just as much as they care about the way the cake looks! Building a one-on-one relationship with clients is integral for weddings. When clients decide to book their wedding day with me, they essentially book me for the entire week of their wedding.  I don’t ever overbook weddings or offer consultations on weekends simply for this reason.

Perks of the Job
Being able to sit down for a design meeting and tasting with clients is such an awesome experience! Building a one-on-one relationship with clients is integral for weddings. When clients decide to book their wedding day with me, they essentially book me for the entire week of their wedding. I don’t ever overbook weddings, or offer consultations on weekends simply for this reason.

We absolutely adore tented outdoor weddings – they feel so luxuriously romantic! Brook and Adam’s outdoor feté in downtown OKC is lovely with gorgeous hues of purple and greenery that really pop beneath the beautiful setting. The bride was ethereal in her Lazaro gown from J.J. Kelly Bridal Salon, and her maids complemented perfectly in plum Dessy gowns from Prim.  Inspire Events and Design did an incredible job pulling together all the details for this couple’s dream day as well as designing the fabulous florals. Linens and lighting from Marianne’s helped set the scene perfectly, and guests were treated to delicious cuisine from Interurban Catering and a tasty wedding cake from Amy Cakes. Thanks to Sheradee Hurst Photography for expertly capturing every stunning detail. Cheers!

This Kate Spade inspired shoot from Leslie Herring Events at Spain Ranch was absolutely incredible! Take an all white venue and add bold pops of color – that’s the type of design we love to see!  Anthousai Floral Design was the perfect choice for florals, and their dainty blooms adored the tablescape so beautifully. Prescott Bridal dressed our model, Lewis Jewelers graced her with gorgeous rings, and a huge thanks to the teams at Atherial Makeup and Skin Studio and Trichology Salon for making Lindsey look stunning.  Andrea Howard Cakes designed the sweetest little gold and black striped cake, and No Regrets provided perfectly paired paper complementing the theme of the shoot.  Blue Label Bartending was on the scene with colorful cocktails that were as delicious as they looked! (Trust us!) Mood Party Rentals is always our go-to for that trendy white on white vibe, and their lounge furniture was on point.  Complete with subtle touches of polka dots and gold, Atria Creative perfectly captured this stunning shoot on both photo and video – see below! Happy Monday!
