Uchenna and Steve, July 17, 2010

It’s a rare treat when you ask the bride what kind of cake she wants, and she replies, “surprise me.” I didn’t even need to finish my conversation with Uchenna about the wedding, and the idea came to me: champagne peaches and cream with vanilla cake. She wore orchids in her hair and I wanted the cake to evoke the colors of a sunset. The wedding was at Bubby’s in Brooklyn, and I thought this would fit the Americana style of the day. The couple wanted a small cake and whoopie pies (same flavor as the cake) as party favors.

Kara and Kerry, April 17, 2010

Cupcake wedding! Kara and Kerry had their wedding at the Stanton Social. The cupcakes were vanilla, chocolate and red velvet, all topped with a rich buttercream. It was the first time I used cupcake wrappers, and I have to admit, they are cute. They add a little extra to a simple decoration.

Kathy and Rob, May 16, 2009

My friend Kathy’s wedding cake was the first one I baked for my cake company. It was chocolate cake with a passion fruit curd filling. Scroll down to see an image of the cake. Actually, you should probably check out all the images- the wedding was beautiful and the photos are the best wedding pics I’ve ever seen. Kathy and Rob really put a lot of though into every detail, pretty much designed and built the whole wedding themselves, by hand, and were able to remain as chic and fabulous as ever.
