A Winter Wedding!

Most Minnesotans would expect there to be two feet of snow by the turn of the new year, but this year has been a surprisingly brown winter. As Leah and Matt planned there winter wedding, I know somewhere deep down, they were hoping for snow… and the morning of their wedding, there was a beautiful snowfall that covered the ground in white! What a beautiful backdrop for their big day.

This was a fun wedding to create a cake for because the decorations and flowers were surrounding the woodland theme with golds, red berries, and lots of fresh evergreen scents in the air! Their cake was a chocolate cake with raspberry filing and fresh vanilla almond buttercream. The cupcakes that fed the guests were vanilla cake with bavarian cream filling, chocolate cake with bavarian cream filling and carrot cake with cream cheese buttercream. They were decorated with a handmade chocolate twig and fondant berry. The cupcakes were displayed in a custom cupcake stand that the couple got to keep. The Vintage Ballroom in Faribault was a beautiful venue that was the perfect place to celebrate their winter wedding. Congratulations to the lovely couple, Leah and Matt!

A Good Ole Country Wedding Celebration!

Cupcakes for all!

Weddings in the summertime in Minnesota are so beautiful. The grass is green, people are in the best mood and of course, ready for a party. The Stokke wedding was nothing short of a good time. The ceremony and reception site was at the beautiful Historic Breuntrup farm, located in Maplewood, just outside of St. Paul, MN. The tables were covered in mason jars, daisies and a variety of vanilla cupcakes with white chocolate monograms and fondant daisies. There was also a two tiered wedding cake for the couple to share with the head table! It was white vanilla cake with amaretto mousse, chocolate bavarian cream and vanilla bavarian cream fillings. All in all, it was a beautiful day, surrounded by family, friends and a beautiful couple!

The Great Big Cupcake CAKE!

I have a feeling the giant Cupcake cake is going to make some grand appearances at lots of unique celebrations and smash cake baby photos! It can be iced in buttercream or iced in rolled fondant for a more cartoon look. It comes fully equip with jumbo sprinkles and a cherry on top! The one pictured here was dark chocolate cake in the cup, white vanilla cake for the top and filled with red raspberry fruit filling! At $48.00, it’s one of coolest cakes to hit the menu and is sure to be a hit at your next party. Have it boxed up and delivered for free in Faribault! ‘Oooohhh’ and ‘ahhhhhh’s are surely expected.
