Happy Anniversary to Nona and George. I hope you enjoy the cake, it’s your favorite, chocolate.

A Farm Wedding Reception

16 Oct

The setting was beautiful for this reception, under a tent in the late afternoon on a secluded farm off the road, no highway noise etc. Horses grazing in a nearby field. So serene and quiet.

     The 3 tier yellow butter cake was filled with black raspberry buttercream and iced in lemon buttercream basket weave. Fresh flowers mixed with strands of wheat were placed on the top and around each tier. Simple but perfect for the suroundings. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

                                                      Table arrangements were also simple and pretty.

All in all I think it was a perfect day.

                            CONGRATULATIONS to Brittany and Ryan

Basketweave Fun

 Basketweave Wedding

 I just discovered i like doing basketweave cakes especially this size. This one made for a second wedding and for a bride of a certain “age” was a 6″ & 10″ square golden butter cake with almond butter cream frosting. In doing the basketweave you don’t have to try to smooth the cake icing so much which lets you get the job done so much quicker. The flowers were air dried butter cream brushed with a little pearl dust to add just a touch of shine. The flower color was left up to me and i like pastel shades so this is what i went with. I  added the lily-of-the-valley because i think of this as being an “old fashioned” flower and it pared well with the soft shades of the roses.

Since i wasn’t going to deliver this one myself i had to prepare it for someone else to pick up. I packed it in 2 boxes for an easier drive, to be stacked on arrival. Destination Chapel Hill.
