Summer Weddings

I have had the great honor of creating cakes and cupcakes for two weddings this summer.

I thought you would appreciate if I shared them with you.

I started the journey planning to make 300 cupcakes and a wedding cake for both. I ended up with 500+ cupcakes for both. Hey! You can never have too many cupcakes! Imagine if we ran out! Better to have too many than too few.

The first wedding was I was asked to create a Navy and Burlap type cake.
Here is what I came up with......

Unfortunately I was so busy baking and such that by the time I thought to take pictures they were not the greatest. Sigh...

Next the tower of cupcakes....

The flavors were:
Lemon and Key Lime
Double Chocolate
Blueberry with cream cheese frosting
Vanilla with Vanilla Bean frosting

The next wedding I was also the Matron of Honor so I had all kinds of fun!
The bride had a Vintage Fair theme for the reception. Pinwheels were a big part of it so that is where I drew my inspiration.

The Cake...

The pinwheels were made with fondant. The flowers were made with cupcake liners. This was a fun cake to create and the bride truly let me have creative liberty with it. I think I redesigned it 3 or 4 times. I finally figured it out the night before the wedding. Her main colors were teal and orange.

On to the cupcakes....

The flavors were Snickerdoodle, Double Chocolate and Vanilla Bean.

I also made an Oreo grooms cake.

They dipped an Oreo in milk and then fed them to each other.... I know, too cute!

I just want to give a shout out to all who helped me! I couldn't have accomplished these creations without my AMAZING friends.

Baking from my heart,
