A Whirlwind Wedding Weekend!

Wow what a week! This time of year is really busy for weddings and this weekend was no exception. I had 11 cakes go out this week, most of which were adorned with custom handmade sugar pieces such as bows and flowers.

While I do typically limit the number of commitments I accept for a given date, for every cake I took on for this weekend, I was forced to turn 2 away. I don't blame the brides for choosing this weekend to get married. After all, it is in the 80's with mild humidity and beautiful breezes....not to mention I was born on this weekend 25 years ago...has to count for something right?

So with 11 cakes, 100 sugar flowers, my birthday and a Death by Chocolate fundraiser (which I will blog separately), it's no wonder I need to put my feet up....oh and I guess it doesn't help I am nearly 7 months pregnant....

Not complaining at all....just relishing in the fact that all that was going on and not one ounce of quality was compromised. It just meant I worked a little harder this week, that's all. I respect my clients and the fact they have put trust in me to be part of their most special day.

Here are some pictures of the beautiful wedding cakes!

Weekend Weddings- Many congratulations to all the newlywed couples!

Could not have asked for a better weather weekend! Friday saw heavy rains early in the day, only to have the skies clear and cast a beautiful glow on the freshly watered scenery. Saturday was incredible...mild temps and blue skies with white puffy clouds...who could ask for more?

Definitely not the couples who were married this weekend! Everything was perfect! The cakes were gorgeous, the wedding decor at every reception was just breathtaking and these couples were just a joy to work with!

Here are some pictures of their delicious wedding cakes:

I did not go on hiatus from blogging...I've been busy having fun!'s been ugh well....say a month since I've last blogged. I promise though...I have not been kicking back eating bon bons in the sunset for the last month!

BUT I have indeed been having fun. If you would like to call your son, your precious little sweet innocent cutie pie son starting kindergarten fun...well then yes, I've been having fun. Add to that a trip to Chicago, a ton of client homework and well there are of course CAKES (tons of them might I add) and one could say I'm a little rusty with the updates. Truth is, with all the craziness that August had in store, I still managed to have a little fun. Thank goodness!!

But, alas, as most of you (the blog followers anyway) have been patiently waiting's time for an update.

Okay so here goes....

CAKES! Tons of them- coming from every direction- they're everywhere and IT'S NOT SLOWING DOWN. I think there's a break coming soon (I think). Not means longevity and job security I know I here are the CAKES!
