 Rustic Wedding Cake

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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.

Seating sign                          Pumpkins with table numbers     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.

Celebrating Erin’s Birthday

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.
