I am first going to start this blog by saying that my heart goes out to all the people affected by the storms and tornadoes along the East Coast. The U.S. was hit hardest in the South East, where many people in North Carolina and nearby regions lost their lives, homes and loved ones.
This storm system was threatening to arrive over the weekend. While everyone here was busy checking the radar, I was busy singing "Rain Rain Go Away"! Well, it worked! With the exception of a few drops here and there, it was a beautiful weekend!
Paige, one of the sweetest brides EVER, wanted a 4 tier cake with an offset build to resemble a staircase effect. This simple butter cream cake was decorated with a sugar oyster shell on top, another oyster half shell on one of the lower tiers and a scattering of black pearls made of sugar. LOVE this cake!
Laurel wanted a classic style cake with varying shades of whites, ivories and taupes- trimmed with a light lavender fondant band and BEAUTIFUL live flowers provided by Henry Kretchmer of The Flower Garden. Aren't the ivory English Roses so beautiful?!!
These little guys are 8 individual mini cakes made for a table setting for 8. Each place setting will get it's very own mini cake. Each cake had a small, half opened dwarf magnolia made of sugar with sugar lavender. I can't wait to see the professional photographer images from this event!!
