Oh don't you lovelies just #LOVE cake? Honestly, the sweets table could be our favourite thing about any event and seeing all the goodies we can subtly try stuff in our face! Working in the events biz, we love getting to know the faces behind these amazingly talented creatures and really understand the art of #DELICIOUSNESS!
With that, today LENZO are giving you lovelies the inside scoop on the talented Carol and her business Deliciously Yours.
By now if you are a LENZO fan, you probably would have heard of Deliciously Yours, a company that infuses intricate stationery design with #YUMMY cakes + sweets - talk about a match made in heaven! Their work has featured in 2 of our most unique editorials, our Pop Art Engagement Party and our Roller Skate Disco Party, proving that Deliciously Yours has never faced a brief that was too big, too bold or too #OTT!
Deliciously Yours is a miraculously created accident after founder Carol was gifted a decorating cake book. From endless nights practicing and testing recipes + designs, her passion only grew and grew until she was designing her own creative sweets, as well as expanding her business into stationery design.
This means you can have your cake and stationery match to #PERFECTION! LENZO is obsessed with this concept and we are loving how Carol often draws on her client’s inspiration or ideas – whether it be a texture in a wedding gown, certain event florals, colours or fave characters, and incorporates this in both the stationery suite and the dessert design.
LENZO TIP: Make sure you ask Carol for advice on your event as she is very in the know of cool themes or ideas that you can bring to life! She sees Rose Quartz to continue to be big, as well as #FlowerPower and creative plays on geometric shapes.
And what are Carol's party planning tips?
- Have a theme – whether it be colour or character or cuisine. This makes life so much easier because it narrows down options and helps tie everything together. It’s much less overwhelming when you have a ‘visual’ of the end product.
- Keep it simple – simple decorations, styling and food. Hunt around at local $2 shops, Op shops or borrow your mother’s vintage everything!
- Plan ahead so you have plenty of time to look glamorous for your event!
It is clear that after originally being a creative outlet, Deliciously Yours has grown into something special and we are so fortunate to have seen Carol's hard work and dedication turn into success. Our favourite thing about the evolution of the brand, is that Carol now has her own blog 'Baked!' where she shares her tips of the trade.
Carol also has released her own cake decorating book, as she loves teaching and wants to share her knowledge to ignite the cake maker within everyone!
