Remembering a beautiful fall wedding…

Last October I had the honor of making a wedding cake for one of the nicest couples I have ever met!

They wanted something a little different and fun and this is what we came up with…

Polk Wedding


To give their guests the ultimate variety, the bride and groom chose four different flavors for the cupcakes.  All were iced with Vanilla Buttercream the was colored to match the beautiful wedding colors.

Keeping with southern tradition, they also had a groom’s cake.  Since the groom was almost as big of a Tennessee fan as I am a Virginia Tech fan he was very excited about his cake!


He chose his favorite flavor cake, peanut butter, for this one.

The location of the wedding was an absolutely beautiful farm that was purchased by a couple for the soul purpose of providing a rustic setting for weddings and other events.  Jeremy and Sarah Oehling have done an amazing job creating Starlight Meadow!  If you are looking for a rustic setting for your wedding you should definitely check them out!

Even though this wedding was during the weekend of Hurricane Sandy the atmosphere was true to the couple’s nature.  Fun, happy, and energetic.  Their photographer, Tina Marsh Photography, did a great job capturing the day!

A note to Chelsea and Trevor:

I wish you both a lifetime of love and happiness!

Oh, and since I saw from your photos that you cut into that top tier, I’ll be hearing from you on your 1st anniversary!

All the best,



It’s finally here!

There’s a chill beginning in the air, the leaves are changing, and every Saturday, Sunday, and Monday people are gathering to cheer on their favorite teams.  That’s right…the football season has returned!  A season filled with good friends, good times, and good food.

Here are a couple of sweet treats that would make the perfect finale to any football party spread.

The weather was topsy turvy this week and so are my cakes!

This topsy turvy cake was a fun addition to a little girl’s “Rock & Roll” themed birthday party.


Happy birthday and ROCK ON Ryan!

Purple Coach Bag on the Rack

purple-coach-cakeIt’s Saturday afternoon and I’m designing another fashion bag, soon to be devoured. That’s right, a Purple Coach Cake (… a Bag on the cooling Rack).

From children’s purses to MAC compacts to Louis Vuitton each one has been fun to make.  This cake should be no different and I can’t wait to see how it turns out — Devil’s Food and Cream Cheese Frosting. Totally Coach.

In the meantime, I’m still celebrating VA Tech’s win over the Bearcats.

Anyone want me to make them a Tech cake? I’m sure you could convince me to do it for 1/2 price.
