Last year I was able to do a few cakes before my shoulder forced me to take a hiatus from baking. Each cake was fun to make and definitely had its own personality, just like the brides and grooms they were made for.
This first cake was meant for an outside wedding that was moved last minute due to weather. The reception look fabulous, very fun and fresh.
The second cake was a quick order from a friend whose brother was marrying his sweet heart in a simple ceremony. The bride chose the vibrant colors of purple and orange. I was given fairly free range as far as design went. I tried for a subtle tropical feel that was still very clean and contemporary.
And this last one, might be my favorite of the bunch. When I think “wedding cake” this is what I think of. Traditional, feminine, with sumptuous floral accents. It makes me want to get back to baking! This reception was lovely, it was held downtown in a rooftop garden with amazing views.
Also debuted was my handmade ivory cake stand. With gold accents being more on trend lately I needed something more neutral than my silver cake plateau. I was pleased with how it came out, and it is nice to be able to provide another option to my clients.
