Southern Weddings Blog
One of my past brides, Sarah, had her wedding featured recently in the Southern Weddings blog. When I show up to a wedding for cake delivery, it's usually about an hour before it starts, so people are still scrambling around to set up the decorations and flowers. I love looking at photos of clients' weddings - especially when they cut the cake!
I'm also glad to see that the cake was listed as one of the wedding highlights! Unfortunately, the photo looks like it was taken from the back, so you can't see any of the handmade sugarpaste flowers. I posted a detail shot.
This cake was different from most other cakes I design. The buttercream was purposely "spackley", and it had an pleasant old-fashioned look (which is what the bride was going for). Trust me - there is a fine line between rustic and sloppy. It still took some time to neatly achieve the right look.
I've got a couple of brides who will have their weddings featured in the Knot later this year. I'll be sure to post the articles.
