Congratulations Emily and Eric

December 29, 2012
Emily and Eric at The Museum of Life and Science

I met with Emily and her sister at the beginning of December to talk about her wedding cake, the date just weeks away on the 29th.  Emily was a bit nervous about the short notice but this was the not first of this kind of timing nor was it the shortest notice I’d received so we were ready to taste and design.

I liked the idea that there wasn’t a lot of issue or stress on theme or color or tradition.  Emily and Eric were using some bold colors and also some subtle colors, teal and champagne, and the wedding was at the Museum of Life and Science so it was a fun setting.

We chose to go with a diamond shaped cake because it went with the invitation layout and the piping to resemble the beading of her dress which I was lucky enough to get a peek at.  We also decided that some cupcakes for some of her guests with special dietary needs would be good.  Two dozen cupcakes that were gluten free and vegan were done in chocolate with chocolate frosting.  They were delicious as we had to do a taste test on the first batch!

When I arrived to set up the cake I could not believe how the museum had been transformed to accommodate their wedding.  The venue was bursting with color and looked amazing.  I’ve had a few sneak peeks at their photos and they continued to be bold in their use of colors and weren’t afraid to have some fun.  It definitely seemed to fit their personalities.

I am so pleased and have worked with Emily and Eric and to have concluded my baking year with the wonderful wedding!
