Other thoughts about the albums:
I love that the designs range from incredibly traditional to modern within one album. It has multiple personalities, like me! These designs allow me to control the destiny of the couple's look for their wedding. It's the A to Z design for their stationery and cakes at the same time!
Average client: They really range in age 20-40s where the younger bride wants more traditional and the 40 year olds want something modern.
Strengths as a retailer/store: I'm not afraid to take the extra time to do custom work. I push brides to create a design that is uniquely theirs, your stationery should look like you. I also have Adult ADD which is a plus, because I don't want to do anything the same way twice!

Robin's first love is making wonderful wedding cakes! We have featured some of her stationery to cakes on this blog. Her ability to help each couple from the beginning of their stationery design to the end of cutting the cake is always inspiring. Watch Robin and her team on Amazing Wedding Cakes this season on WE tv which premiers late March.

Wedding Invites- to Wedding Cake!




We at Spark cannot say enough how happy we are about our retailer, Gateaux (Plymouth, Minnesota) who first and foremost specializes in wedding cakes! Our Arianna design was used throughout the couples wedding- their invites, day of, even wedding cake!

According to Gateaux's website:

For over 10 years, Gateaux has been designing wedding cakes as beautiful and individual as the couples for whom they were created. We are now able to offer invitations as unique and individual as our award winning wedding cakes. Combining your cake and invitation consultations with Robin allows a free flow of ideas as we incorporate aspects of both into the general theme and color scheme of your wedding.

Robin Martin, the owner and cake designer, states, "I love the challenge of incorporating a couple's style into their cake design. Besides, it's fun to get to rifle through our client's wedding files for inspiration."

Robin doesn't brag enough about herself. Her cakes and use of combination invitation design and cakes have been seen in countless wedding publications: Brides, Minnesota Bride, among others. She also competed in the Dr. Seuss Cake Challenge on the Food Network. The link is the YouTube with her experience.
