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.

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.

Go Cyclones… Hawks, I mean.

There’s much to say in this post.

My dear & super friend Maria, gave me a cool cookie cutter for Christmas. I promised her that I would make some of these cookies as soon as I could. I finally got to do it and I liked how they turned out.

Second, for a long time (and I mean loooong time), I didn’t know who was who when it comes to Iowa universities and football. We Mexican people (and/or Hispanic people) call it  American Football.   I have been in Iowa for 10 years now and for many years I didn’t know where the Cyclones or the Hawkeyes were.

So, if you are easily offended by Iowa university football, please skip to the next paragraph because… I don’t really care much about football. Cyclones… Hawkeyes, they were both the same to me. All I know is that I see more yellow “stuff” than red. I just don’t like or understand football, that’s it.

Maria told me that when she was looking for a cookie cutter to get me, she didn’t know which one was my favorite. Easy… I don’t have one! So I was happy with the one she gave me, because it was a new cookie cutter!

Here are the cookies.

Maria will definitely be getting some of these cookies. So will my brother in law… the biggest Iowa football fan I know.

So I’ll close with the title, GO CYCLONES…. I mean, GO HAWKS!

** Note to myself, Red – Cyclones… Yellow – Hawkeyes **

Gracias hermana!
