Adventurous Cake for an Adventurous Couple!

When Natalie and her mom came in for a tasting, I knew we were in for a fun time. Natalie and Michael are both adventurous spirits...they love the outdoors...whether skiing, surfing or something in between, they are happiest outside. Natalie saw a cake in my tasting room and fell in love with the all white number with differing height tiers and lots of texture. We decided to incorporate a wave pattern on one of the middle tiers to bring in her love of the ocean. It was very subtle and it went perfectly with the cake. Natalie chose wonderful flavors for her wedding cake...Sour Cream Almond Cake with fresh pitted cherries and Vanilla Buttercream and Vanilla Butter Cake with Vanilla and Lavendar Buttercreams!

Here are a few pictures of their cakes. Beautiful pics courtesy of Jody Miller Photography.

A few weeks before Natalie and Michael's wedding, I received a call from Judy (Natalie's mom)...turns out Natalie's birthday is on her wedding day! She wanted to surprise Natalie with a custom surfboard and a birthday cake. We decided on a ski mountain with 2 kittens surfing down. The cake was a Vanilla Butter Cake with Coconut and Lime Buttercreams! Their lovely wedding took place at Montpelier, home of James Madison.
