A Wedding Cake with a Fun Surprise

A classically beautiful wedding cake,  Simple but actually intricate.

But we want a little fun too.  So in lieu of a grooms cake we made a little Scooby Doo Tribute peeking out of the side of the cake!

So I had a bit of a learning moment on this delivery.  I didn’t ask enough specifics about the reception area, while it was at a restaurant it was actually on the outdoor patio…in June..It was 80 degrees in the shade.  It took some doing, a few discussions with the wedding people and the florist, that “No it’s not ice cream but it will still melt in 80 Degrees”  All in all it was fine, the humidity gave it a little shine, but it could not sit out for the entire reception.  Lesson learned!

Artist Palette cookies

I really love these palette cookies.  Something about the texture and the colors.  I know it sounds corny but I imagined a painting for every one.  Like the blue one, for that one I was imagining a water scene,  and I love the splash of red on the one in the upper right hand corner.  It’s like all the things I love about going to an art museum but all contained in a cookie!  They were actually very easy to make,  I just did it very free form with a palette knife.  Made me remember everyone’s friend Bob Ross!

Happy Little Cookies!

The Wawa Cake!!

Wawa Cake

For those of you who do not live in the greater Philadelphia area you may not know about Wawa.  Well Shame on you!  Wawa is a wonderful place to get a hoagie, a coffee or slightly cheaper gas.

Apparently it is also a place to fall in love.  This cake is a groom’s cake for a wedding for a Bride and Groom that met at Wawa.

Winery Wedding Shoot

Meg Brock Photography (9)

  I received this wonderful opportunity to be involved in a photo shoot with a very talented Photographer, Meg Brock.  She does beautiful work.  We did it at the Rose Bank Winery in Newtown, PA. I may have gone a little overboard because I made a whole dessert table.  I really love how the pictures came out but you have to see the shoot from her perspective.

  Please look at her website to see some beautiful pictures:
