Kirsti and Mike came to me with the request for a cake with a light and breezy wildflower feel. This made me excited because I knew that I was going to have a great time picking flowers from the garden and pastures the day of delivery. There is something so special about connecting a cake with nature and the season. They wanted the flavors of the cake to be pure and light also. They chose the vanilla chiffon layers and since I put two layers of filling in each tier, they asked if there could be two different fillings. Of course I said "yes!" and they chose lemon curd and my special triple cream filling. On the outside was vanilla buttercream. Light, creamy, breezy with a touch of thirst quenching lemon on a hot May evening! Kirsti let me know the guests loved it! Yeah! I also would like to thank Iris and Tony, Kirsti's parents, they came to the tasting and it was great to meet them. They seemed to enjoy the wedding process as much as Kirsti and Mike! Always a pleasure to be part of a joyous family's events.
While I was setting up the cakes for Elisa and Neal's wedding, grandparents and family members were relaxing nearby waiting for the ceremony to begin. I enjoyed hearing their conversation of how well matched these two are and how family from both sides were looking forward to having the other be part of their family. What a great way to start. I too was taken by the harmony between this young couple. When discussing the cake, they felt strongly that the other should have the cake they wanted. He, all chocolate, her, all vanilla. And so it happened with easy compromise. The wedding cake was simple vanilla chiffon layers filled with pastry cream and iced with vanilla buttercream. The groom's cake was dark chocolate sour cream layers filled with white chocolate mousse and iced with dark chocolate buttercream. This might just be a match made in heaven.
Katie and Travis were married on a beautiful spring day at one of my favorite venues. The rustic wooden lodge at Montfair is on a pond and has romance and charm. The couple requested a rich buttery cake and so chose my vanilla butter layers filled with dense chocolate ganache and fresh strawberries. The icing is vanilla buttercream. The square design and the bright green ribbon gave the cake a tailored look and the scroll piping gives the icing a feel of embroidered fabric. This cake has received much attention and was featured in The Daily Progress. I love when a bride inspires a new design!!! Thank you Katie and Travis.
