Weddings and Cakes

It is always an honor to be asked to make a wedding cake for people you love. I made this one for Jen and Kyle’s wedding.

The bride asked for lemon cake with a blueberry compote filling and buttercream frosting. I love being involved in these special occasions and making wedding cakes, but I always stress about it.

Because I want everything to be perfect and I do not have full control over the conditions of the venue, whether or not a guest will bump into the table, or the weather which will affect the cake and frosting. To add more stress I had to travel with this cake. (Instead a visual of me biting my nails!)

Yes, I have control issues. I can see my family and friends nodding in agreement. (Shut up!)  I just want everything to be perfect for the couple. About five days before the wedding I kinda hyperventilated until I pull myself together with a stern lecture and talked myself though the steps.

My mom’s advise, “Just tell yourself you can’t do it. No always meant go when I said you couldn’t do something.” Ummm, thanks mom. Good talk!

  1. Holy Matrimony Ella! You are the true Cake Bosswoman!

    You came up with a beautiful vintage cake that fit the theme perfectly. I mean, not that I am surprised in the least. 🙂

    1. Major points, sir! I’m not even sure the bride and groom pasted that together.

      I do my cakes like I do my home remodels…you decorated for the character of the home not personal style.

      The venue, the bride”s gown, told me how this cake was going down!
