A blog about food, sweet and savory, as I am determined to try new recipes. Also, I am sure, I’ll tell a little about what my family is up to. And last but not least, what goes on in the making of our beautiful wedding cakes.
Thanks Vermont Vows for recognizing my achievement in Brides Magazine, very nicely said!
The summer season is always a busy time of excitement. Working all week to perfect the cake of their dreams and complete the couples special day. After about 10 years in the wedding cake industry I have found that the key to success is patience and that your rewards will come when they are truly deserved. Newly engaged couples come to me because they want to work with someone who can meet their needs and give them exactly what they want at the end of their day. Recently I have been featured in BRIDES August/September issue as one of "The Most AMAZING Cakes in Every State" one of the top 100 in the country.
This elegant cake was for a family friends daughter, after having done a cake for their oldest daughter they came back for seconds! It's always great to see friends or family of a past couple ask for my services. The topper was not the usual bride and groom statues but rather a delicate bowl filled with flowers to complement the table center pieces. The cake was accompanied with a table of desserts including mini pecan pies, bite-size flourless chocolate cake and mini assorted fruit tarts.
For one of my recent weddings the groom had a passion for golf. The bride surprised him with a birthday/grooms cake on the wedding day! Hope the surprise was a success. This grooms cake was decorated to look like a golf green, with piped grass and brown sugar for the sand pits. Looks like you were pretty close to getting the ball in Joel!
Aside from the grooms surprise birthday cake, the main cake was my trade mark birch with their own little flair. They decided to decorate the cake with some colorful flowers and cute little love birds on the top. This was truly a summer-fun wedding!
