Wedding Cakes

This past weekend I made naked cakes for a Brooklyn wedding.  The bride and groom had requested the cakes to look like a previous set I had made, so that’s exactly what I did.  Two smaller cakes were topped with a berry preserve along with fresh blueberries and blackberries, while the larger cake was topped with a pear and some concord grapes, as well as a few fresh flowers.

The wedding was held at the beautiful Brooklyn wedding venue, 501 Union.  While all the decor looked lovely, I especially loved the floral arrangements from 2H Flowers – they mixed raw cotton mixed with rich florals for the head table bouquet, which was just so dang gorgeous.  I also loved the gold-trimmed vases that were displayed down the center of the longer dining tables.  Beyouuutiful work, 2H ladies!

In other news, I spent all last week filming 10 more Craft On episodes (hence the blog absence).  It was a very long week, followed by a long weekend of baking.  Needless to say, I am very excited to have a couple days off before I start another wedding cake for this coming weekend.
