Rustic Wedding Cake

10 Nov

 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.

Almost Halloween Birthday

9 Oct

I have done so many Halloween birthday cakes for Joe I am at a lost for new ideas. Each year I try to do a different design not only for him but for myself as well since it’s the decorating I really enjoy and not the baking. The cake is always the same, yellow butter cake with raspberry butter cream filling and almond butter cream frosting. I thought the ghost & pumpkin borders were cute but the guy in the middle I’m not so sure of.

A Pretty Fall Wedding

21 Sep

This was a beautiful wedding, held in 2007 at an historic building in Pinehurst, NC called The Fair Barn. The bride choose to have both her wedding and reception at the same place. Each table with an array of tiny pumpkins used for place cards, to the table center pieces, gave the whole room a fall atmosphere and was so beautiful. The square cake placed on a copper tray had a swirl design and  topped with a fondant sugar bow brushed with gold pearl dust. The cake was surrounded with fresh fall flowers provided by the florist.
