Thank you note!

I received the nicest thank you card when I delivered the anniversary tier.  I was really surprised and also very touched.  My clients thank me all the time but it so nice to get a hand written note once in a while.  In the note they thanked me for all the hard work I put into their wedding and groom's cake and that it was not only beautiful but the focal point of so many wonderful memories.  They also told me how excited they were to receive their anniversary cake because it would be another chance to taste their wedding again.  And lastly they thanked me for helping them celebrate this first milestone in their marriage.

I thank them both for their wonderful words.

Happy Anniversary

 Happy 1st Anniversary to Sarah and Christian Funkhouser!

Last year on September 24th  I had the honor of creating the wedding cake for Sarah and Christian.  I delivered to the University Club at the University Towers here in Durham, NC.

The designs you see piped onto the cake were the inverted colors of the topper they had created.  

I really enjoyed working with Sarah and Christian.  They had a great groom's cake too!  

Congratulations and happy 1st anniversary!

This is the pattern on the fabric that the topper was created from.  We decided to do red on white to decorate the cake.

The groom's cake.  The camp fire really flickered!
