99% of the time, we sit down with the bride and/or groom to design their wedding cake from the inside (flavors), out (decorations). However, we are sometimes contacted by out-of-town brides and design the cake via email or phone conversations.
In July, Ashley and Juan drove from Georgia to get married in St. Petersburg. The reception was held at the Parkshore Grill, and Ashley asked us to create her wedding cake. She sent us a photo of a cake she liked and some samples of her wedding colors, and we took it from there!
We covered the cake in light pink fondant and decorated it with a grey Damask pattern. Damask is very popular in white and black so to see it with different colors is eye-catching and refreshing! Then, we accented the cake with an ivory floral spray.
We always love to hear back from our brides, and Ashley was quick to email us to let us know how much she loved the cake. She even left us a comment on WeddingWire.com saying,
…it was absolutely BEAUTIFUL! it was more beautiful than I imagined it would be! All the colors on the cake went exactly with my wedding colors like I had asked. It was so so so so so delicious! I can not wait until out one year anniversary so we can eat our top layer! Because we have no leftovers! All of our guests are still talking about how yummy it was!
Ashley & Juan served white almond cake with chocolate buttercream filling to their guests, and the couple will enjoy chocolate almond cake with cream cheese filling on their first anniversary. Congratulations, Ashley & Juan!
