Cuthbertson & Baker Wedding

Natasha, the beautiful bride, is my husband's niece. So, over dinner one evening we worked with her to create this wonderfully elegant square Wedding Cake. She let us use our marshmallow fondant all over cake, which isn't something we get to do often. So, we were pretty excited! Her turquoise color looked stunning on this 3 tier cake. We made the top tier taller than the other two to give it an elegant elongated look. The white pearls were added to mimic the pearls worn by the bride. The topper was purchased by Matt & Natasha. It matched the style of the cake perfectly.

We also created these SweetCakes to serve as extra cake once the Wedding Cake had all been served. They were a huge hit with the kiddies. Pink was not one of the wedding colors, but the Strawberry Yumm cake was just too tasty not to throw in there!

Another huge hit at the Wedding reception was the Groom's Cake. We actually searched the web to find a cake like this...just to see if one existed. We didn't find one. AND, we couldn't even find a picture to use as a reference. Heather's step dad did the research for her. He called the neighbor up (who has horses) and asked if he could come over and take some reference pictures. The neighbor really got a kick out of the whole thing. The lengths we go to for realistic cakes! The wonderful Groom, Matt Baker, wanted a "horse poop" Groom's Cake. After a little reluctance, Natasha gave in. So, we created this one of a kind "Horse Poop" cake.

We created the "horse poop" out of chocolate cake. We used dried spaghetti noodles to look like hay with Flies made from raisins and floral wire. The guests at the reception didn't quit know what to think about this cake. The kiddies couldn't wait to eat it! It was very funny watching them all stand to the side of the Wedding Cake while it was being cut waiting for the "Poop" cake. Poor things were practically drooling! How funny!
