Wedding Cake & Cupcakes


I was so honored to be asked to cater a beautiful wedding this summer. The bride was the exact opposite of a bride-zilla, she was amazing. She was great to work with and in fact cared about me as a person concerned if I could handle everything with being crazy-sick-pregnant.


Her colors were black and white with a lime green accent. She asked for 8 dozen cupcakes and 8 dozen mini cupcakes, with every couple dozen decorated differently. We had roses, vintage toppers, sugar pearls, sanding sugar and lots of frosting!

In talking with her I suggested perhaps doing a small wedding cake so that she and her groom could have something to cut into for that whole feeding each other thing.


I was so worried because free-hand piping black icing onto white fondant is SCARY! You can't mess up, you can't re-do it, you get one chance. I think it turned out great, along with all the cupcakes and 8 dozen white chocolate covered strawberries.

Unfortunately I didn't take as many pictures as I should have, but I'll just have to add that to the list of things I've been learning through this wedding and other catering adventures. The reception was decorated beautifully, the bride was gorgeous and I am so happy for this cute couple.

WOW!! Everything is absolutely gorgeous. I especially like how the black piping stands out with the white cake. All of the cupcakes look (and probably tasted) delicious.

GREAT JOB!!!

The lime green pearls turned out great sis, you are so creative! Also, you should do some more wedding cakes so that I have many samples to choose from one day far away, or I'll get too impatient and just order an awesome cake before than haha.
