This past weekend I had the pleasure of making Cheryl and Loren’s wedding cake. This wonderful couple gave me free-reign to decorate their cake as I saw fit. They gave me general ideas of what they wanted in a wedding cake and told me what their wedding theme and decorations would be and I took it upon myself to decorate the cake accordingly.
When I arrived at the venue, I instantly loved their decor. Vintage picture frames everywhere, lace, pearls, gold, and vintage lamps. I couldn’t wait to set the cake up!
For their cake flavors they chose orange almond cake with orange zest buttercream filling and vanilla cake with raspberry preserve filling. I snapped a picture of the raspberry preserve filling while I was assembling the cake.
And here is the finished product.
Along with their tiered cake they also had three half sheet cakes that were going to be sliced and put on a dessert display.
I received this wonderful email from Cheryl the day after the wedding…
“Karli, our wedding cake was AWESOME!!!! Loved it – it was beautiful and tasted great! You got lots and lots of compliments! We had quite a bit left over, but people were really happy to take advantage of leftovers. Thank you again for doing a phenomenal job! Best wishes in your growing business. I’ll keep you in mind for future events.”
I love adding happiness to couple’s special day!
Congratulations Cheryl and Loren!
This past Saturday I got to take part in a great event hosted by the De Pere Chamber of Commerce.
I got a call on Wednesday from a woman who works for the chamber, and she asked if I would like to have a table of samples for the event…that Saturday! Apparently someone cancelled at the last minute and they needed to fill a spot. Cake and Cookie came to the rescue!
The event attendees totaled around 150 and I must say, many of them had a sweet tooth!
I provided samples of:
mini chocolate cupcakes with salted caramel cream filling,
mini vanilla cupcakes with raspberry filling…
white chocolate raspberry, almond, chocolate peanut butter, and minty chocolate macarons…
cream cheese brownie cookie, chocolate chip cookie…
chocolate dipped shortbread logs…
peanut butter cups…
and chocolate chip balls (that have a delicious almond kiss inside!)
It was fun to interact with people and get their feedback. I hope to do more events like this in the future!
P.S . I had an interview with the Green Bay Press Gazette today so stay tuned for more information regarding my interview and when you can find me in the paper!
I love being able to provide dessert to celebrate some of life’s greatest events.
This week I got to do just that.
A vanilla cake with raspberry preserve filling and italian meringue buttercream to celebrate Baby Clover’s soon-to-be arrival into this world!
Cute little baby booties!
I also got to make a pull-apart cupcake cake in the shape of a wedding dress for a bridal shower.
Cupcake flavors included marble, chocolate with peanut butter filling, and carrot with cream cheese filling.
And even though sweets tend to be made to celebrate events, there is nothing wrong with ordering some “just because!”
Like these salted caramel and key lime macarons.
I will be posting soon about the event I provided dessert samples for last night. Make sure to check back!!
These macarons were made to fulfill a 15 dozen count order. The flavors were white chocolate raspberry, chocolate ganache, strawberry, vanilla bean, chocolate peanut butter, and minty chocolate. Talk about fun! And I really do mean that. I have so much fun making these little guys. I think everyone should order some so I get to have some fun making more! 😉
My sister came into the kitchen with my mom and me last week and snapped some photos and I thought I would share them with you!
