Wishing on a Cake

Brides with style rely on Utterly Engaged, an online bridal magazine, to find inspiration and resources to plan the perfect wedding. And it was at Utterly Engaged that we discovered Costa Mesa based cake studio, A Wish and a Whisk who designed the most beautiful cake we’ve ever seen on its current issue. (Pictured above)

A Wish and a Whisk is a custom cake studio owned by Lindsey Sinatra, formerly with Christopher Garren’s in Costa Mesa. She left Garren’s two years ago to branch out on her own with a Wish and a Whisk and is now a sought after cake designer in her own right, as a regular on
“Amazing Wedding Cakes”, and seen on the “Food Network Challenge.”

She’s also created 300 individual birthday cakes for Betty Whites 90th birthday gala; designed the cake for the New York City premiere of “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows”; and was honored to make a replica of the Paris Opera House for the closing of the 20 year world tour of The Phantom Of The Opera in Los Angeles. A Wish And A Whisk is open by appointment only, and the sky’s the limit as to what Sinatra can create in the form of an edible masterpiece.

She’s made 3-D cakes of life-like trucks, fantasy castles, hat boxes, perfume bottles, beautiful flowers, and fanciful gifts boxes. Choose from 22 cake flavors including Thin Mint, Black n’ White, Jamoca Almond Fudge, Pumpkin Pie, Carrot Crunch, Chocolatey Goodness, Berry Bliss and Red Velvet.
