Barker Wedding cake

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

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

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

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.
