Yellow and Ivory wedding cake

Posted on June 21st, 2012 in Cakes, Other Sweet Treats

This is my first wedding cake after having my third baby. I am not going to lie, but I was afraid that it would be too much… and with the baby, it was.  Here’s the scoop.

We have a 4 tier wedding cake featuring ivory peones, yellow lillies and tulips. Each tier of the cake is different in height which makes it beautifully  unique (client’s request, good job!). The two main colors, yellow and ivory while the accent color is black.

Another thing you should know about the cake is that only one tier on the cake is real. Yes! We offer cakes made out of styrofoam as an option to save on the total cost of the wedding cake. The third cake from top to bottom is the real cake.  It was a delicious chocolate butter cake with chocolate buttercream.

The groom got his cake also. For a football fan we made a football cake. He is a chocolate lover so his cake was also a chocolate butter cake with chocolate buttercream and covered in fondant.

We also delivered a couple of sheet cakes. Flavors included lemon cake with raspberry filling and  white caramel cake with dulce de leche buttercream. I never take pictures of the sheet cakes, but it is not much because we just cover them in buttercream.

The client also requested Cake Truffles. Flavors included Chocolate cake with Chocolate buttercream, Strawberry cake with raspberry buttercream and White Butter cake with vanilla sweet cream buttercream. All were covered in chocolate/white chocolate and drizzled with swirls of matching colors.

Here’s a collage of the wedding cakes.

It was a delight working with this client. Here’s a beautiful Thank You card we received from her.

We delivered the cakes and treats to the historic Hotel Pattee in Perry, IA.

Congratulations to the beautiful couple.

Green Mums Wedding Cake

Posted on July 28th, 2011 in Cakes

I had the pleasure of working with a very nice couple in creating their wedding cake. Their dream cake came together in a simple yet elegant design.

I loved the combination of turquoise and white tiered cakes accented with a deep brown ribbon around each tier.

Heavier on the bottom and lighter on the top, Swiss dots highlight the first and third tiers of this 4 tier cake. The topper is a made out of beautiful real green mums.

The cake flavors included chocolate butter, golden butter, lemon, and white caramel.

We also surprised the groom with a  personal cake decorated with a Hawkeye logo made out of chocolate.

Hawkeye Cake

This cake was a Chocolate Butter cake and it was covered in buttercream. The design included the lines from the football field. This is a very popular cake design!

We delivered the cake to the Historical Building in downtown Des Moines. The couple also had a separate White Butter sheet cake (not shown) for guests.

I do have to apologize for the terrible pictures I took. The lighting was shinning on the cake table and my camera is really not the best.

Congratulations to the lovely couple.
