Barker Wedding cake - This cake was for my fellow cake decorator friend, Lynette. I always get nervous when making cakes for fellow decorators, but she was very gracious. :) She was a beautiful bride and I am so happy for her and her newly expanded family!
Peacock wedding - This wedding cake was for Jared and Rachel. My cute friends. All my cakes for Hilary's kids have great stories. The wedding was at La Caille. So I was already nervous. As I am almost there, over-zealous wedding planner calls me and says I am late, people are starting to arrive. I was sure I wasn't really late, as I had actually written down the exact time I was supposed to arrive. But she was there on site, so I must have gotten it wrong somehow right?? I am in Salt Lake traffic in a PANIC, I get to the venue, trying to hurry my fastest and we see the pretty peacocks. What my sweet sister realized while carrying in the last layer is that peacocks aren't as nice as they are pretty. :) He was at her heels as she ran the last layer in. When we got inside, there were no guests, no sign of the wedding party. We were not late at all. The reception didn't start for an hour! :) So with my nerves shot, I set the cake up and got out before anyone else came in. Rachel was a stunning bride and so gracious. Love these two!
Labor of Love - This cake was a labor of love for sure. It comes with the cutest story. Once upon a time there was a girl who really wanted me to make her wedding cake. She was dating a boy who was just leaving for 2 years on an LDS mission. I told the girl if she waited for the boy, I would do it for free. If she didn't wait, I would charge her double. Well, she waited. And thank heaven because they are just the cutest couple!! Love these two!
Elegant Bow Wedding cake - What most people don't realize is that these "simple" cakes are the toughest ones. :) There is no covering up imperfections on these beauties! This is the furthest I have ever traveled with a cake too! But it was well worth it. What a sweet couple.
Draped Roses Wedding - Wow...everything that could have gone wrong with this cake did. :) Good thing I started early for once! My power went out right as I went to make the fondant. I would have had an hour to spare, but just barely made it 30 minutes before show time! Stress! I didn't have time to make it as perfect as I wanted to, but I think after 10 years of doing this I am finally getting the hang of these flowers. It took me two full days to make all these babies!
Girly Buzz Lightyear - This was for the cutest little girl who is a total girly girl, but loves Buzz. It was also her grandma's birthday, so we made it so the top could be taken off for the little girl and the bottom for grandma. It was so much fun to do something for this amazing family I grew up with!
Cherice wedding - This one was for the daughter of one of my old mutual leaders so it was dear to my heart automatically, but I also loved that they did kind a shabby chic design. It was super fun and the color just popped. Thanks to the Chuggs for letting me be a part of their day!
Morgan County Fair cake - This was the cake I made for my local county fair. I had SO much fun with it. I got Grand prize, Sweepstakes and People's Choice. I loved doing it so much this year that I think I may sponsor a bigger contest next year. :)
