My favorite part of this job is to meet with new clients and share with them the excitement about their wedding. I love hearing and seeing their vision for this memorable day. The architect in me loves the challenge of designing something unique, absolutely tailored for a specific event. I find it so rewarding when our cakes feel like they "belong", and that it couldn't be displayed anywhere else, because a part of the story would be missing. Today's wedding cake was basically an interpretation in sugar and chocolate of Mindy's vision for her wedding. I LOVE the color palette that she chose: fresh and stylished, absolutely glamorous and perfect for the time of the year!
Decked with our custom made sugar flowers and iced in a lovely shade of satin blue rolled chocolate panels, to match the bridesmaids dresses.
To celebrate their union, our client chose one of our best selling combinations, Almond Amaretto with Almond crunch! If you could only perceive its aroma!
Congrats you two! May you live a long life of happiness and togetherness!
