We believe in embracing the art of celebration.
The Muse Manifesto
We believe that an elegant cake serves as a reminder of the beauty that comes with life—seasons of celebration, moments of togetherness, and bold gestures that bring about joy.
We embrace the act of romanticizing the everyday – a casual glass of wine on a Tuesday, a midweek brunch with your girlfriends, or an evening soirée with your closest friends and family.
We believe that entertaining is a form of self-expression, where even the simplest of occasions serve as a blank canvas for you to express your sense of taste and style.We live for the little delicacies–the intentional touches of elegance that invite you to celebrate in the most purely delightful way possible.
We pay special attention to the small — and sometimes forgotten — details that transform an ordinary occasion into a rather extraordinary moment of celebration.
THE ART OF THE SUGAR FLOWER
CURATING THE DESIGNS
Drawing inspiration from exquisite scenes in fine art, fashion, and travel, our floral collections are designed to capture an essence of elegance and sophistication. Our in-house designers work hand-in-hand with our master sugar artists to curate each arrangement, carefully selecting the colors, proportions and elements needed to create a realistic floral aesthetic.
PERFECTING THE PETALS
Once all floral styles are selected, our master sugar artists recreate each concept by hand. Our artisans spend hours perfecting each petal, carefully shaping the sugar into realistic floral embellishments. The petals are then assembled into a full floral arrangement before being set aside to dry.
ASSEMBLING THE ARRANGEMENTS
Each floral element is joined together by a central wire that can be used to insert the arrangement into the cake. The art of crafting sugar flowers is a quite scrupulous process, requiring hours of meticulous work from conceptualization to completion. Each individual sugar flower is a truly handcrafted work of art.
