I've been busy, real busy. So today, I decided to take the day off, and catch up with my leisure reading...and look what a sweet surprise I had...one of my favorite wedding cake featured in the latest Issue of Cincinnati Wedding Magazine!
I really got in love with this wedding cake design, but more important that that...I fell in LOVE with this client. Not only Megan (Bride) was one of the sweetest Brides I have had, but also, her Mom, LeAnne...is just AMAZING. Every interaction with them was pure joy, and their mom-daughter dynamic was so refreshing and loving that kept me thinking: "This is the type of relationship I want to have with my own daughter!
It is hard to believe that half of the year has already passed, and that it's been over a year since I made this beautiful and Delicious wedding cake!
I love how Leah Robbins capture the reaction of Megan and James looking at their cake for the first time!
Not only was this cake gorgeous...if it is ok for me to say so :)...it was DELICIOUS!
Megan chose my French Vanilla Sponge, paired with the most delicious and fragrant Raspberry and White Chocolate Mousseline.
The talented Leah Robbins capture this beautiful image on the plated cake, that was so artfully done by the amazing team of Jeff Thomas catering, with whom I LOVE working!
I made a few White Chocolate lace pieces to garnish the plates of the Bridal party...to me, this is how a "Restaurant Quality Plated Dessert" looks like!
I've been fortunate to stay in touch with Megan and LeAnn, and enjoy their friendship!
I can't wait to see Megan and James family grow!
