Well a lot of fun things have been happening at the shop recently! A few months back the sweetest guy ever, Devin, emailed me asking if I was possibly up for him proposing to his girlfriend Kristen at our shop. He said Kristen was a big fan of the blog and lover of sweets like me, so of course without thinking twice I said a big YES! Time went by and Devin kept me in the loop with his plans of them flying to California and his thoughts on how to propose. He designed the gorgeous ring himself and wanted me to make a cake with some of the design elements incorporated into it. We set the cake up with the rest of our daily treats and had a sign made for it that said “Turn Around Kristen”! When they walked in the door I was a little nervous that I would mess up their special moment, but thankfully everything went as planned…Kristen had absolutely no idea of what was going on and we chatted for about 5 minutes before she even glanced at the desserts. Then I tried to describe the treats and point her in the direction of the special cake…she was still not catching on…so finally I asked her if she could read me what “flavor” the cake was. Instead she told me the sign read “Turn Around Kristen” and that she was Kristen, SO I told her to turn around and as you can guess the rest is history!
Here are some photos of the gorgeous ring that he sent me for inspiration…Kristen is one lucky lady!
Now grab some tissues everyone! Too bad we didn’t have a recorder going because Devin made one of the most romantic proposals ever…very touching!
The happy couple!
And yes I should’ve put a little make-up on and done my hair, but I’m a baker right…
Thank you so much Devin and Kristen for letting us share in your special moment! I am so happy for you both and wish you only the best!
This next wedding was such a pleasure to do also! The bride, Kerri, was so much fun to work with and really jumped into helping with the design and set up. Kerri & her mother made all of the cake stands by gluing plates onto cups, bowls, and candlesticks and bought matching platters to go along with them. I love it! She also made the backdrop and the signs too!
I am finally getting time to make more sugar flowers lately and had a great time making this orange ranunculus flower.
They wanted their guests to have lots of yummy mini desserts too so we made mini candy bar cupcakes, mini lemon cupcakes with fresh raspberries, vanilla cake lollipops, chocolate espresso cake lollipops, and mini chocolate peanut butter pies.
Thanks for letting me bring some “sweet” to your special day!
