This past weekend I had the pleasure of creating a wedding cake with a "Vintage pearls and lace" theme. I love how glamourous this cake turned out. The bottom layer is Pumpkin Spice cake with stabilized cream cheese filling and the top 2 layers are Vanilla cake with stabilized cream cheese filling. The entire cake is covered in buttercream. The black and white pearls are made of sugar and the monogram is fondant. The orchids, lace, ribbon, and brooch were provided by the bride and were not edible.
The venue (Shoal Crossing Event Center) was beautiful and had a great layout for lounging, eating, drinking, and dancing. The area where the cake was located reminded me of a swanky parlor complete with a grand piano and funky white leather chairs. I need a room like that in my house!
I want to thank my co-worker, Rachel, for referring me to the bride. I think the cake turned out beautiful but paled in comparison to the gorgeous bride, Joy. Congratulations to Joy and Jed!
