Bridal Tea Cupcakes

Mrs. Judy contacted us a couple months back and wanted 75 cupcakes for a Bridal Tea. She sent us the color swatch from fabric they are going to use at the Tea, which included dark blue, light blue, lime green and yellow. She wanted to incorporate all of the colors into the cupcakes to match the decor.

We decided on vanilla cupcakes in dark blue cupcake liners with yellow buttercream adorned with light blue layered fondant flowers and lime green buttercream leaves.

Congrats, Elizabeth! We wish you may years of happiness, love and laughter!

Peacock Bridal Tea Cake

We were contacted a few weeks back by some of our dear friends about doing the Bridal Tea cake to feed 20 for our awesome friend, Amanda.  They left design and flavor up to us, but her sister suggested peacock theme/colors since she knew Amanda loved that.  We knew her wedding colors included a Tiffany Blue so we played that into the design of the cake.

We decided to go with a two layer 8″ round cake with a single layer 6″ round cake on top.  We went with a vanilla cake with strawberry filling, covered in buttercream as this is what her wedding cake will be.  We wanted to give her a taste of what’s to come.  We also covered the cake in Tiffany Blue colored marshmallow fondant with a luster dust shine.  After the cakes were stacked and the sparkle of the dust was added, we made a fondant ribbon to wrap around the base of each tier.  We then wrapped a silver band around the center of each ribbon.  We then added a fondant bow and the peacock feather to the bottom tier.  After 4 hours baking/decorating the cake was complete.

The excitement came when it was time to deliver.  As we arrived at the Bridal Tea destination, which so happened to be a local bakery with a dining room/party room, Ben went in the ask where to place the cake as we delivered thirty minutes before the Tea and none of the guests or hosts had arrived yet.  After they showed him the location, he came back out to get the cake and went in as the owner held the doors open.  It was then that Ben was asked if the cake had been made there. After Ben informed him we were in charge of the cake, he was told that it was not allowed on the premises.  So here came Ben back to the car with the cake as I called the Bridal Tea Hosts.  The heated Bride was immediately on the phone with the owner and succeeded with the argument.  (Way to go, Amanda!) Two minutes later our cake was on the cake table inside of the bakery, ready for the Bridal Tea.  Stressful moments have finally led to some giggles, as we have never delivered to a bakery before and will never forget this experience!

We love you, Amanda! We cannot wait to witness your special day!  God Bless you both.

Simple Kind of Love

Our good friend, Sarah, wanted to come down and help us do a cake (actually, two different ones) for one of her friends that is getting married in April.

She wanted to cake to be a simpler yet elegant cake.  A red velvet caked to feed 15, black and white as the colors and a monogram on top.

We baked two 8″ round red velvet cakes and covered with buttercream.  We made the monogram from royal icing the night before so it would have time to harden.  After placing it on top, we piped a black bead border around the top and bottom.

Due to the family friendly atmosphere of this site, I will not post the second cake we made for her.  It is like none that we have ever made before, but actually had a blast making.  Just think bachelorette party and let your mind run wild.  If you ever bump into me and want to see it, just ask.  I’ll be happy to share it and share a giggle. (Never thought I would have to censor myself from a cake.  Boy, the things we do for our friends.)
