Today has been fairly busy what with cakes for Thanksgiving and birthdays that were going to be celebrated along with the big family Thanksgiving dinner. All the cakes but one that was chocolate were yellow butter cake with vanilla butter cream. Decorations were a combo of butter cream flowers and fondant, turkeys and pumpkins were molded from fondant.
Like they say in there ad “it’s a beautiful day in Pinehurst”. It was indeed a beautiful Fall day for Erin and Bill’s wedding. Both the wedding and reception was held at The Fair Barn, a great space to hold two functions. The wedding was held out doors with the reception in the Barn. The rustic style of this reception was perfect for the surroundings. Along with the wedding cake, (yellow butter cake with almond butter cream) there was a cupcake bar with chocolate and yellow butter cupcakes iced in chocolate, vanilla and almond butter cream. White Rabbit catering was the food vendor. Margaret Smith (Maggie’s Farm) was the florist.
Cupcake Bar using all heights of plates and stands to elevate the cupcakes.
This was the seating sign. Table numbers and names were placed on tiny pumpkins. Pick up YOUR pumpkin with your name and number to find your table. Very cute and clever.
Beautiful flowers on each table along with large pumpkins. Each table pumpkin had a different number that matched the guests seating number. The burlap runners on each table along with the wire reel for the wedding cake added to the rustic feel of the reception.
This cake was ordered by Erin’s husband Jared to celebrate her birthday tonight. It was my pleasure to do this couples wedding cake in 2009. I thought it was so nice that he wanted this birthday cake in the same flavor (yellow butter with vanilla butter cream) and to look similar to their wedding cake with dots and hot pink roses to surprise her. Very thoughtful Jared.
They were celebrating 2 occasions at this party. A 25th Anniversary and a 60th Birthday.
Cake flavors were yellow butter with vanilla butter cream.
The flowers were fondant and butter cream.
I can’t decide what season I like best,spring, summer, fall or winter. Each one gives me the opportunity to do different colors for my cakes. This cake of course has a fall theme, The orange flowers are butter cream, the multi colored leaves are cut from fondant. The cake, yellow butter with coconut/pecan filling and vanilla butter cream frosting.
I had so much fun creating this cake, making the track for the train to run on, the scenes around the sides and the stars. I had not done one quite like this in a long time. The sizes were 6″ & 10″ yellow butter cake with vanilla butter cream.The stares, tiny flowers, name and the number 2 are fondant everything else is piped butter cream. The train is a purchased item.
I can’t imagine what it would be like to have 2 babies at one time. This lucky family is having one of each, a boy and a girl. This was a fun cake to do. The strollers, hearts and daisies were fondant. The cake flavor, chocolate with vanilla butter cream.
