We went for simple and romantic with this coral colored wedding cake.

Five hand made sugar peonies and several sugar roses!  We went for really simple with the white fondant, that way the focus remains on the handiwork of the flowers!

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!

The Cake I Delivered with the Help of an ATV

This cake was the first cake I ever delivered with the help of an ATV,  The wedding was held at New Life Island near Frenchtown, NJ.   The Delaware river flooded and I was unable to drive onto the island.  So the Director, Norm, met me across the river with “the ranger”; I climbed in and held the cake on my lap as we drove across the non-flooded foot bridge to the hall where the reception would take place.  Everything turned out fine and the cake looked great!  Bride and Groom were very happy as was wedding cake maker!
