Let them Eat Cake !
Since I have a few minutes of free time, and access to the laptop, i thought I'd post a few pics from the Wedding. ('The Wedding', lol) The first one is the actual Wedding Cake. Jenni pretty much left the design up to me,...I knew she wanted it kinda 'rustic' to go with her Vintage Garden theme. And it had to have the birds and branches. We also wanted it BIG, cause it needed to make a statement. (not sure what the statement was, maybe 'This is one stinkin' BIG cake' ??) This was what I came up with, and I was pretty pleased with the results. And it was VERY easy to decorate, lol. The sizes and flavors were:
12" round - Styrofoam (fake)
10" round - Chocolate and Vanilla cake, with Snicker Bar Mousse filling
8" round - Vanilla cake with Pineapple filling
The 2nd photo is of the Dessert Table. It included 5 seperate 10"round cakes, and platters of homemade cookies. Many thanks again to Angie Jones (no relation, but should be!) for her YUMMY cookies! The cake flavors were:
1. Chocolate Cake with Fudge filling
2. German Chocolate cake
3. Carrot Cake with Pecan Cream Cheese Icing
4. Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese icing (no nuts)
5. Red Velvet cake with Cream Cheese icing
All together, there was enough cake for 200 servings. My beloved husband Gary kept saying that he bet that HALF the cake would be left when the reception was over. Yea, right. Guess what?? There was NO CAKE leftover!!! Except that styrofoam layer, but that doesn't count ;) Can I just say..."In your FACE Gary!" hahaha!
Warning! Shameless Business plug coming...if you are shopping around for a wedding cake for an upcoming wedding, please give me a call! I do tradional tiered cakes, Dessert cakes, (like the 5 on the table) Money saving Sheet cakes, and Cupcakes! I can help you design the perfect Cake for your reception. Many flavors to choose from, all homemade and yummy!
Happy Eating! Linda
