|Here’s another beautiful editorial submission as seen in our current Toronto edition. This ‘Pretty in Pink’ feature was a joint collaboration by a group of vendors under the principal direction of one of the *most* talented women I know… Miss Melissa Samborski of One Fine Day Event Planning + Design. Melissa has produced several features for us in the past and I’m always awe-struck at her attention to detail. I barely need to communicate a vision – she just ‘gets it’ each and every single time. The beautiful photos were taken at the Estates of Sunnybrook by Corina at Corina V Photography: another fabulous lady with a talent behind the lens who is also a graphic designer to boot! Without further ado…

Last but not least, I adore the incredible cake from this feature by Patricia Drewnowska of Patricia’s Cakes.
This confection is both stunning and sweet with a cascade of blush-colouredsugar roses and other life-like candied blooms.
Double-vanilla cake layered with blackcurrant Italian meringue buttercream and chocolate ganache covered in vanilla fondant and painted with luster dust. DIVINE!
Patricia also designed the adorable meringue treats!
Let these ladies know how much you adore their work… leave a comment! :)
