Emily and Andrews Wedding Cake

22 Apr

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.Wedding cake -Emily & Andrew

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.

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 Table arrangement arrangements and the dance floor was ready for an evening of fun.100_4413

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.

 

Parker Wedding Cake

11 Oct

Parker wedding cake                         close-upI 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.

Seashell Wedding Cake

9 Sep

Seashells

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.

wedding cake -2 tier, pink flowers 100_4041

This past Saturday (June 6th ) proved to be kinda busy for me, with 2 small wedding cakes, 2 doz cup cakes , a birthday cake plus a 2 tier baby shower cake. Cake flavors were all the same, classic butter cake iced in vanilla butter cream. The pink Mums  are piped butter cream, the small flowers are fondant.

Wedding Cake number 2 was easier, no flowers, just a piped design with a dark plum color fabric ribbon wrapped around each tier. This cake also had a strawberry butter cream filling. . wedding cake #2-with ribbon
