April 22, 2016 was earth day, it was also Emily and Andrews wedding day. The outdoor venue for their wedding vows had to be changed because of rain so the wedding was also held at the reception site, the Fair Barn. You have to learn to be flexible when it comes to the weather. Lots of room there, so it worked out fine. The cake flavors were classic yellow butter cake iced in vanilla butter cream. The beautiful fresh flowers were provided by Aldena’s Floral Designs in Aberdeen, NC.
I also made them a grooms cake for their rehearsal dinner on Thursday evening at the Holly Inn in Pinehurst . They both love camping and other outdoor sports so I went with a fishing theme complete with a fishing Bride and Groom. Flavors were marble cake with vanilla butter cream and fondant accents.
Doing this cake each year is so much fun. My friend Donna always has a party on St. Patrick’s day and she always want a chocolate cake with vanilla. The decorations are up to me. I try to create a different looking design but always with a Leprechaun on top.
I can’t take credit for the design on this cake, my customer supplied a photo for it. Flavor, yellow butter cake with almond butter cream with fondant pipe, butter cream yellow roses.
I really like doing the piped rosette design. It’s quick and easy.

After a bout with this “ransom virus”(they wanted $500.00 to get my files back, I didn’t pay) and losing some of my documents and pictures and having to buy a new computer, I’m back on-line. YEA !!! Here are a few of my NEW cake pictures.
PS- back up your stuff often.
Now that Christmas is over and my life is back to normal I have time to post just a few of the many cakes and cupcakes I did for this month.

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.
