Favorite Cake of the Year!

Well by the title of the post you can probably guess that I am in love with the cake I’m posting today!  I love working with Jesi Haack & Carissa from JL Designs because I know that I am going to have an amazing client that has wonderful taste! Joanna and Brian were just that!  They gave me full control when it came to the cake and I was so excited when I found out their look.  I had been wanting to create this style of cake for a while now and once I pitched the idea to Joanna and she said yes, I was SO excited!

There is definitely more to their wedding than my cake of course…they wanted to have a “Great Gatsby” style wedding and I have to say they definitely pulled it off! They also had their wedding at one of my favorite venues…Marvimon!  The gorgeous photos were taken by Annie McElwain, who I can’t wait to work with again!

Finally…the CAKE!  My idea for the cake was to create one large open garden rose that cascaded all down the cake, but had a definitely center to it that started at the top.  I loved the idea of it being all white!  It is definitely my style with its modern look that is simplistic, but yet has great detail!  Hope you like it!

And of course it has to taste really delicious too!

Thanks Joanna & Brian for trusting me to make your wedding cake…I had such a wonderful time!
