Severn & Garrett Wedding

Nothing brings us more joy than making people happy...and if we can accomplish that doing something we love, it makes it even better! Jaclyn Severn contacted us about creating her Wedding Cake. The Wedding was set for Halloween night. I'm thinking...how fun will that be (wondering to myself if she is willing to do a little something different)?!

Well, it was. We met with Jaclyn, looked at some of the photos of cakes that her and her fiance liked and then we went out on a limb and created a one of a kind design for them with our Wedding Cake Design Pro software and Photoshop. We incorporated the aspects of the other cakes that they liked into our own design. We were SO very delighted to find out that they both loved the idea! We knew they would either love it or hate it. Much to our surprise and appreciation, they loved it. Here is the design:

The "topper" in the digital rendition was more for show, but our idea was to actually use feathers as a topper because they were going to be using feathers for the table centerpieces. They were game, so we created the topper for the actual cake as well and here is how it turned out:

To make things even better one of or favorite photographers: Karissa Herod took the photographs for the Wedding & Reception. www.expressiveimagingonline.com or www.myspace.com/expressiveimaging

The Bride and her mother wanted a Comic Book themed Groom's Cake, so here is what we came up with:

The Groom's cake was Classic Chocolate cake with Chocolate BC frosting, covered in Chocolate MMF. The comic book character logos were all hand cut and hand painted.

A week or so after the couple returned from their honeymoon we received an email from them. This is the entire reason we are in the business and when there are difficult days all we have to do is read this email and feel so, so much better!

"I just wanted to tell you how much we enjoyed our wedding cake. It was way more than we ever imagined. Everyone was amazed at how fantastic it looked and how delicious it tasted. We could not have asked for a more perfect wedding cake, it was honestly the best cake I have ever seen. Thank you for doing such a great job and we will definitely recommend you to everyone we know. Good luck at opening your shop, I am sure it will turn out great!!

Thank You,

Mr. and Mrs Garrett"

Thank you Jaclyn & Travis for such an awesome opportunity to showcase our talent and make you, your friends, and family happy!
