Jefferson's Rotunda - SURPRISE!

In early April I received an email from a lady who wanted to surprise her daughter and son-in-law with a cake in the shape of the Rotunda. The bride and groom both went to UVA, as did many of the attendees of the wedding. I worked with the always fabulous Jessica Sheffield of The Event Company to make sure the bride and groom would have no idea about the cake. The lovely pictures are courtesy of Rob Garland from Rob Garland Photographers. Thanks for the pictures, Rob and Meg!

Back to blogging...

...After we had our third child last October and enjoying a few months with him, I kicked back into high gear with the 2009 wedding season in April. It has been pretty much non-stop since then and I have not had much time to blog.

The season began with an adorable couple, Elizabeth and Scott. They are such a fun-loving and carefree couple, so I knew we were going to have fun with their wedding. Elizabeth wanted to do away with the ordinary and chose cupcakes to treat her guests. We created 200 cupcakes in 3 different flavors...chocolate cake with white buttercream frosting and sprinkled with chocolate shavings, almond sour cream cake with light pink buttercream frosting and slivered almonds, and lemon cupcakes with raspberry frosting, topped with a fresh raspberry on each. Elizabeth gathered dozens of vintage cupcake stands for display and the effect was brilliant (I will post pics from the photographer). Their guests were able to indulge in one, two, or all three of the flavors of cupcakes! To top it off, we created a GIANT cupcake for Elizabeth and Scott to cut.

Thank you Elizabeth and Scott!
