My sweet obsession

Abby Rose

My first formal wedding cake, this was done for my pastor’s daughter Abby.  Talk about batism by fire, this cake needed to feed 300 guests.  It was originally slated to appear at a church reception.  Due to weather conditions, the venue was moved to a very formal (and beautiful) catering hall.  Even more nerve-wracking was  the fact that I was attending the reception and would be present for any comments – kind or otherwise.

I could not have asked for a nicer bride and mother-of -the-bride to work with.  They gave me full artistic liscense.  My only criteria was that it feed 300 and include teal and yellow accents.  The bride indicated that she liked old-fashioned things and seemed partial to the quilted designs I showed her.  I had plenty of time for my ideas to gel, and really did not discuss them with her.  She did not even ask to see a final sketch.

I was amazed by the way it all came together in the last few days before the delivery, and with the set up at the venue.  My sister Joyce was by my side for physical assistance and moral support.  It all went off without a hitch and I have gained a new sense of confidence in my skills.

    Absolutely beautiful cake, and to think no one around here made cakes like this when we were looking for someone to make our wedding cake.
