Harris & Pope Wedding

We created these cakes for Sara & Josh back in April. We really enjoyed these cakes because they really let us have artistic reign. We'll show you the cakes and then you can read a little review Sara so kindly wrote about us on Wedding Wire. She was so sweet to write all that she did we thought we would share.

We used a burnt orange tinted BC frosting to cover the cake with golden yellow large sunflowers as accents all over. We really like the way it turned out.

This was a cake we created for the Groom to reflect his love of four wheeling/mudding.

This cake was for the Bride. Since she is from Kansas, all of her fellow army men and women nick named her "Dorthy". We made this Wizard of Oz themed cake complete with Ruby Red Combat Boots and the Emerald Tower.

Here is what Sara had to say: My wedding day was as wonderful as it could possibly have been. I am in the United States Army and am stationed at Fort Louis in Washington state. Needless to say, I had to plan my wedding from several hundred miles away. I only had a brief window of opportunity in February to choose and book my cake. I was pleased that Heather made herself available to fit my rushed and hectic schedule on very short notice. It can be overwhelming when you are trying to make decisions and choices, and you are provided with such a vast array of cake designs--nothing was outside the realm of Heather's capabilities. Anything that came to our imagination, she was game to try. She was very helpful in helping me narrow down the plethora of cake choices. We had no idea how much cake we were going to need. We knew we had to have enough to serve about 200 people, but we didn't want too much cake left over either. Heather seemed very knowledgeable in this area. She suggested the cake size and we went with it. After the wedding, there was very little cake left. People loved it so much, they kept going back to get more, especially the chocolate with the creamy filling. We didn't need to worry about how to "get rid of all the leftover cake." People were more than happy to help us finish up the last of the tasty remains. Heather kept in contact just the right amount--enough to share information and stay on track, but not so much she was annoying. She emailed pictures of cakes and made numerous phone calls to make sure everything was the way we wanted it. When we had to change the location of the reception, she didn't even wince; she just said, "Oh, that's no problem. I'll just stop and see my mom on the way home." What a trooper. Not only is Heather pleasant and knowledgeable, she is quite the cake connoisseur. I would highly recommend her services to anyone; especially anyone who has trouble making choices and decisions as I did. Good luck Heather, and we look forward to our 1st anniversary cake from Sweet Designs Cakery!

Well, thank you guys! We appreciate all of the kind words and hope that we can do the same for all future couples who decide to let us sweeten up their special day.
