Can You Hear Wedding Bells?

I was so priviledge to meet such a sweet, Christian client this week. She is such a dear lady with a heart for others.  By throwing her sister-in-law to be a beautiful bridal shower, my client wanted the bride to feel welcomed into the family. She had it all set. She wanted a wedding dress cupcake cake, and this is the result. God is good! It turned out wonderful! The family was so sweet that they even invited me to the bridal shower.  What a friend we have in Jesus! and what a sweet new friend I made (i.e. my client).

All the cakes where dusted with a little edible luster dust. Also, edible pearls on the wedding dress. The bride’s theme was country, so the cake boards were covered with jute and decorated to match the wedding colors.

Wedding Cake Flavors: Thinking Outside The Box

The “Not So Famous” Wedding Cake Flavors

Traditional, decadent, wonderful wedding cake flavors such as vanilla bean, chocolate, almond and lemon have graced cake tables for years. Classics such as  red velvet, carrot cake and banana cake flavors have been the cake of choice for many happy celebrations. But what about these new fangled flavors that are popping up out of the imaginative minds of bakers everywhere? Is it “safe” to spend money on a cake flavor that your guests may not be accustomed to? Are theses flavors just a fad?  I leave you to ponder those questions. Here are some bold flavor choices that you and your fiancé may want to request at your next cake tasting.
