The day was a little dark and gloomy with a chance of rain but the Little River Country Club was decked out for a beautiful wedding reception. I made this cake for one of MY fellow class mates ( class of 1955) daughter. I was very happy they asked me to do it. The 4 tier yellow butter cake was filled with a luscious black raspberry butter cream and frosted with vanilla butter cream. Each tier was wrapped with Sangria colored ribbon. Fresh flowers provide by Aldena’s florist.
I also made a groom’s cake, a small chocolate sheet cake for the rehearsal dinner. This couple loves to camp. The theme for that cake of course was “camping”.
MY Best Wishes to Darryl and Alison
With July ending today I find I have a few cakes that I have not posted. Most are birthdays but the first 2 are for a young man and his friends having a special Scout celebration and later Richard gets to celebrate his birthday .
This was Richards birthday cake. He is a NC State fan.
A birthday celebration at the beach with chocolate sea shells.
Pink butter cream roses for Jean.
A flamingo for Yvette
This one I had to correct the name spelling on before it was picked up but I had already taken the picture. I made the flamingo out of fondant.
I can hardly believe June is gone. It seemed to go by so quickly. Haven’t had a lot of weddings this June but have had lots of birthday and other celebration cakes. Here are pictures of just a few of them.
I think this one turned out really pretty, soft and romantic looking. Everything a wedding cake should be. I love the shades of the blush roses with a hint of a deeper color. Cake flavors were yellow butter with chocolate fudge filling and vanilla buttercream frosting. Simple but good. The sheet cakes that were added for extra servings were not filled, just in case SOME people couldn’t eat chocolate. The reception was held at the Country Club Of North Carolina. Flowers by Aldena’s florist.

Some call her Mamma, others call her Miss Mary, either one will be fine. Celebrating a 90th birthday is a special occasion.
