A Surprise Wedding Cake???

Yes, you read that correctly...I never even met with the bride or the groom!!! This was a first for me and I loved every minute of it. The bride's sister called me a few months ago wanting a cake that was made fresh (check), all natural (check) and with no trans-fats (check)! She gave me some details about the bride, Kathy, but what I got most from our conversation was that the bride was fun-loving and carefree...obviously, since she gave so much of the planning over to her family. I was really touched by the love and trust in their family.

I met with Kathy's Dad, Eric, and friend, Jessica, a fabulous event planner with The Event Co. After filtering through the many designs that Kathy's sister sent me and utilizing the lovely linens that Kathy had chosen for her special day, we came up with a fitting design. All the cakes are carved and fitted together to create a unique puzzle-like design. The cakes were Vanilla Cognac with Navan infused buttercream, Chocolate Fudge cake with Amaretto Mocha buttercream and Yellow cake with berries and cream.

I also have to say that this family did not forget anyone on their special day...they made sure to include cupcakes for the littlest celebrants and even had me make a coordinating birhtday cake for those guests celebrating their birthdays on the day of the thoughtful!
