Saturday was a perfect hot and sunny summer( or nearly summer) day. One of the first big weddings of my season, it took a couple of trips up the elevator to get everything in. I think we were all a little warm by the end of set up. But oh, wasn’t it worth it.
Desi and Kenny were very trend forward with their hints of metallics. The entire event was elegant with shades of copper and bronze offset with luscious florals in white, sparking, dangling crystals, and lushly hied and textured linens provided by such talented vendors as Sadie’s Floral, Linen Effects and Richfield Flowers and Events. With Graves 601 as the setting, contemporary was the goal for the cake. Repeating the shimmer of copper on the support layers, the body of the cake was a taupe background for the stunning spray of orchids that arced up from the bottom tier. Orchids met the guests arrival to this lovely wedding for a wonderful couple. And a big thank you to Anna of
Fete Perfection for pulling us all together.
I am pleased and excited to finally announce the birth of my new venture. It might more accurately, with tongue firmly planted in cheek, be described as a blooming. My Jessica’s Cakes site is down and my Sweet Bloom’s site is under its final stages of construction. Under the new Sweet Bloom’s name, I will be creating gumpaste flowers, cake toppers, and other fondant and/or gumpaste details for cakes. I will not, however be making any cakes to hold these details. Along with the production of sweet details I will be teaching around town. Classes will be posted with links included for those who are interested in attending or finding out more. Come back soon and see the new site.
