Cake Pics!!!

Since its been a while since I've been able to post (did you know that June is busy for wedding vendors??!), I thought I'd make it up to you by posting a few of our recent cakes, and the stories that go with them. I always like to hear the stories.

This cake made its way to the Harrison Center for the Arts. The room had a very natural feel to it with shades of green and branches decorating the room. While we've done this type of design in the fall with oranges, yellows and reds, I really liked the way it turned out with the different shades of green.

This cake suffered a minor injury just prior to the reception. On one of those unbelievably hot days recently, the air conditioner had broken at the venue. We received a call on our emergency number (we always leave one at the venues) that some of the flowers had fallen. Upon my arrival, I found out why--the room was almost 90 degrees!! Even though they had fixed the air conditioner by that point, having a small room filled with over 100 people makes it very difficult to cool the room down fast enough. Luckily, all of the flowers were replaced prior to the arrival of the happy couple.

This couple asked us to create a battlefield (one worthy of a wedding, mind you) that they would use to place their collection of action figures. I can't wait to see the pictures of the battle in progress!

This was a graduation cake for a football player. His mom wanted to pay tribute to the school he was leaving (the red side) and his new college (the gold side). We thought this would be a fun way to have the best of both worlds.

I wish we could take credit for the super cute cake topper here, but that was all the bride's work. This groom's cake worked out well for a couple of ball players who were getting hitched. Be sure to checkout our Facebook page for more info on their wedding cake the NCAA Hall of Champions!
