Scrolls and Roses Wedding Cake

2 Dec

  Kathryn and Mike's wedding cake  Saturday December 1 was another beautiful day in Pinehurst. I guess that makes me sound like and advertisement  for this area but when you get a day around 60 degrees in December you just have to brag. Great day for a wedding. The reception was again held in one of the best places we have here, “The Fair Barn”. 

 The 4 tier wedding cake was a combination of hexagon and round tiers. The cake flavor, one of my favorites, Classic yellow butter cake with different buttercream fillings in each tier, lemon, almond, chocolate and iced in almond buttercream.

         Mike (the groom) loved my Marble cake with chocolate frosting  at the tasting so that’s what I did, a 2 layer 12″ round  for the rehearsal dinner. 100_2124

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

A Purple and White Cake

12 Mar

March 12th turned out to be a beautiful day for a wedding, bright and sunny. The evening reception was held at the Country Club of North Carolina. The wedding cake had two flavors, chocolate fudge and classic yellow butter cake  frosted in vanilla buttercream. A purple ribbon surrounded each tier with a cascade of purple and white flowers down the front from top to bottom.  I also did 2 double layer 11×15 sheet cakes in the same flavors for extra servings.


          The Grooms cake which was served at the rehearsal dinner at Forest Creek Club House, was shaped like a tooth (the groom was a dentist).  At least I hoped it looked like a tooth, I’ve never made one before. After looking at many designs, this is what I made. The flavor was Red Velvet with cream cheese filling and frosted in vanilla buttercream. I made the tools (picks etc ) out of fondant.

3 Tier Vine/Leaf Wedding Cake

It’s been a while since i’ve used this cake stand but i  always like how the cakes look on it. The cake almost appears to float in the air. The flavors were (starting from the top) chocolate with mocha butter cream, marble with raspberry butter cream, classic butter cake with almond butter cream. Covered in almond butter cream with a piped vine and leaf design. The fresh flowers were provided by Aldena’s Florist.  Both the wedding and reception was held at the Little River Country Club.
