Wedding cakes and cupcakes!!

My mother and I completed our first wedding cake assignment over the weekend. We were invited to a long time family friends wedding and my mother volunteered to make the cake! The wedding was a nice, simple outdoor wedding on the lake. Table center pieces were wild flowers and the cake seemed to be the perfect fit. We both let out a sigh of relief when the cake was delivered in one piece and safe on the table!  I don't know how professional wedding cake makers/designers deal with the pressure!!

On another note, my mother hand made 50+ frosting flower for the wedding cake and in the end we did not use any of them. Luckily Abby is bringing 20+ cupcakes into her classroom on her last day of school and we put them to good use! They might indeed be the fanciest cupcakes these pre-schoolers have ever seen!!


  1. Such a pretty cake - good job Mom! Oh and love those very special and FANCY cupcakes, I'm certain they were a big hit!
