The day was a little damp and cloudy but inside the Fair Barn in Pinehurst, NC a wedding reception was being prepared for Anna and Thomas. The room was filled with beautiful flower arrangements and the dance floor was ready for an evening of fun.
The wedding cake was also ready and waiting for the happy couple. Cake flavors were a classic yellow butter cake with 3 different filling, mocha butter cream, a creamy chocolate butter cream and vanilla butter cream (always a favorite). The 4 tier square cake with an off-set design was iced in vanilla butter cream and decorated with dots and fresh flowers.
I had so much fun designing this cake with the bride and her Mother. I sketched out some ideas and this is what we decided on doing, 4 different designs for the 4 tiers, dots, 3 wavy lines, a lacy design, and stripes & dots. They wanted to keep it simple as far as the cake flavors, so they ordered their favorite, classic yellow butter cake with vanilla butter cream. I also baked 5 large sheet cakes to go with the main wedding cake to help serve the 300 guest.
Here are 2 of the designs.
I also did a grooms cake for the rehearsal dinner.
A special “Thank You” from ME to my friend Jeanie for all her help. I couldn’t have done it without you :)
Lots of cakes, lots of sugar flowers…

As the message on the cake states this cake was for a celebration honoring 20 years of loyal service. Cake flavor, classic butter cake with vanilla butter cream frosting and butter cream pink roses.
When my friend Diana asked me to do this birthday cake her request was “lots of flowers”. She loves my flowers. I think I fulfilled that request, don’t you?? :)
I covered the top of the 12″ 2 layer yellow butter cake with butter cream flowers, roses, mums, daisies, and some I don’t have a name for, using lots of colors. On the sides I piped a basket weave design. The cake was filled with raspberry butter cream and iced in almond butter cream.
I think getting married on the beach sounds so romantic, don’t you? As long as you don’t mind sand between your toes. That’s where this couple will say their vows. So, of course the cake calls for seashells. Lavender/purple being the favorite color of the bride, I made white chocolate shells tinted with these colors with a few other colors for contrast, all brushed with pearl dust for a little shine and sparkle. My classic yellow butter cake with vanilla butter cream was the favorite choice. So, with Myrtle Beach S C as a destination for this cake, my wish for them, a beautiful weekend with good weather.
When I was asked to do this birthday cake I didn’t know how I would decorate it, then I got a request from the birthday lady herself. She wanted a blue butterfly on her cake. Earlier she had seen a blue butterfly in her garden and it reminded her of someone near and dear to her that loved butterflies. So I piped her a blue butterfly. HAPPY BIRTHDAY BETSY !!!
