Cookbook Winner & Wedding Photos

Well, another crazy week has passed by!  This week I had the largest cookie order that I’ve ever done…500 sugar cookies for a movie premiere!  I was so excited to do this order and everything went great (of course there were some mishaps along they way, but overall it was a success!) More info on that order will be up later this week…I promise I will be blogging more this week so come check back.  But enough about me, I need to talk about you guys and especially the lucky blogger winner who won Sweet & Simply Party Cakes. The winner by a random number drawing was Rebecca from the Lovell Family Farm Website.  So just email me and I will send you off the book.  There will also be another giveaway this week so stay tuned.  

Onto the wedding I did two weeks ago!  Like I said in the last post, I catered a wedding for 200 people.  I didn’t do the full meal, but rather the appetizers and the cake…which was definitely enough for me.  The bride and groom’s colors were dark chocolate brown and turquoise.  They wanted a chocolate ganache covered cake with chocolate cake inside and chocolate ganache filling and fresh strawberries…can you say yummy!  They also wanted to cut the cost a little so we did a smaller size wedding cake with two other kinds of sheet cakes.  The other two kinds of cake were almond cake with lemon cream and fresh raspberry filling and lemon cream cheese frosting AND hazelnut cake with raspberry cream cheese frosting with fresh raspberries and raspberry buttercream.  So without further ado here are some photos of the cake.

As for the appetizers, I did Salmon Cakes with Cilantro Lime Dressing, Fruit Kabobs, and a full Cheese and Bread Platter.  I didn’t get that great of photos of the event since I was working the whole time, but here are a couple photos (sadly I didn’t get a single photo of the Salmon Cakes, but believe me when I tell you they were great!).  

 Well, thanks for taking a look!

    Hi,
    Nice cake. I’m not into chocolate unless it’s dark but I loved the color scheme and the two sheet cakes sound out of this world. No pictures or recipes? I’d love to see what the inside of the cakes looked like. How did the cake and the ganache hold up outside in the warm weather? Any tricks to pass along to us? Please?! Ha-ha!
    Thanks and I’ll be checking back later this week to check out your cookies!

    I love your cake!! It looks so pretty. Blue and grown is such a beautiful combination. A little bold for weddings where we’re used to pastel shades for cake, but who cares! This looks so good!
