Whitney Port at Charm City Cakes
Whitney Port is a down-to-earth Cali girl with a strong eye for design and fashion. With her wedding date approaching, this creative beauty wanted to get some cake-design inspiration at Charm City Cakes West. This #glowbabe shines brightest when doing something creative. Her namesake brand Whitney Eve is a perfect reflection of her funky, casual street style. Whitney puts a lot of care and attention into everything she does, down to the precise way she decorated her cake.
We thought it would be super fun to celebrate Whitney's upcoming wedding with a private lesson from the cake decorating experts at Charm City Cakes West (founded by Chef Duff Goldman.) Whitney created a dreamy inspiration board--a kaleidoscope of vibrant colors and patterns which we're mildly obsessed with--to help guide her in the design process.
Whitney is super close with her siblings, so she brought along (2 out of 5) Paige and Ashley. These girls have the best vibes-- so fun, creative, and artistic. Each of them decorated their cakes to perfection, putting their own twist and personality into their individual cakes. Whitney is definitely lucky to have these girls by her side during the wedding-planning process; in particular, her sister Ashley is a party planner for BK Events also recently started a rad and very impressive wrapping-paper company called Paper|Art Co.
All we know is that Whitney's wedding is going to be super glowy, filled with love, family, and beauty. Can you say #blessed?
