Delicious and Beautiful Desserts: The Lake House Pastry Team

Sweet, fluffy, light, delicious, creative, beautiful. All words (and use a few words!) that you could use to describe a fantastic wedding cake. Creating wedding cakes and delights isn't as easy as it seems (and nor it should be). It takes talent, skill, knowledge, and patience, creating perfect recipes and bringing visions to life.

The Pastry Team at The Lake House continue to amaze and inspire brides with their wedding cake creations. Their in-house team is an extension of their culinary team – the wedding cakes they design are as delicious and inventive as their outstanding menu.

So when you're working with The Lake House as your Calgary wedding venue, how does your dream wedding cake come to life? The process starts with inspiration photos – couples provide pictures of cakes they admire, and together with the pastry team, go over the elements that are the most important to them. From there, the team brings together those essential elements to create a unique design specific to the couple.

But it's not just cakes that the Pastry Team at The Lake House creates. Towers of cupcakes paired with smaller cupcakes are popular with couples right now, and this team also creates petite fours as well such as Dark chocolate almond profiteroles, Mocha French Macarons, lemon meringue tarts and mini strawberry shortcakes. For a wedding dessert that's a little different, this team is known for their sticky toffee pudding, a dessert that guests of The Lake House request over and over again.

This team loves a challenge – traditional wedding cakes with a creative twist, such as geode cakes which are clean and elegant with a burst of colour.  And the challenge isn't just with design – the pastry team at The Lake House take dietary restrictions seriously. It provides a technical challenge when the team can't use eggs or dairy, but this team puts heart, soul, thought and effort into every custom menu and cake.
