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!

Hoppy Easter!

A Bunny Cake

Easter is such a beautiful time of year. Paired with spring flowers, chocolates, eggs, and the Easter Bunny, you really can’t go wrong! I thought since today is a rainy day in Minnesota, I would spread a little cheer by posting some pictures of a few Easter Cakes Confectionery Cake Shop made to help celebrate the season. Enjoy!

A Spring Tweet, I mean Treat!

A Chocolate Buttercream nest for Cadbury Mini Eggs!

What better way to celebrate spring than with a cupcake?! How about a cupcake topped with a cute chocolate buttercream nest, filled with three Mini Cadbury Eggs? Hmm?? If you’re at all like me, I impatiently wait all year for the Easter Bunny to drop off those lovely Cadbury Eggs at the stores each spring and I can’t stop myself from picking up at least one small bag of mini milk chocolate eggs with the candy coating. Well, this year, I thought I’d share!  So for a limited time, you can order these nest cupcakes and the Cadbury toppers are at no additional charge ($20.00 per dozen or $1.75 each). And who knows, I may have hired the Easter Bunny to drop off a few of these at Sweet Spot in Faribault on randoms days all the way up until Easter… so stop by often and you may be able to pick one up!

Love is in the Air!

Giving Thanks Never Tasted So Sweet!

Cornucopia Cake

And so it begins, the season of turkey, ham, potatoes, corn, green bean casserole, cranberries, toasted pecans, and of course…. cake! Nothing makes a more beautiful (and tasty) centerpiece than a cornucopia cake, spilling half a dozen fondant covered cupcakes. This cake was large enough to feed a group of 25 and something that everyone saved room for! It was four layers of cake, filled with raspberry mousse and chocolate mousse. Then it was covered in chocolate buttercream and decorated with fondant leaves and flowers. There was not a loose fitting pant by the end of this Thanksgiving inspired dinner party and somehow everyone was okay with that!
