I had TWO wedding deliveries today. I was lame and forgot my camera at my first drop off...so I'll just have to tell you about it - LOL! I made about 10 cakes-worth of Cake Balls and Pops....Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, Caramel Butter Pecan, Oreo Crush, Caramel Apple and, my personal FAVORITE, Pumpkin Spice! I was rollin' and dippin' for the better part of a week working on this order...they turned out GREAT! Hopefully the bride will share photos when she gets them...the reception hall looked AMAZING!
My second delivery of the day included yummy gourmet cupcakes and a small wedding cake for the bridal party. Let me say here...since I get asked A LOT...I don't really DO wedding cakes....I don't consider myself a cake decorator by any means. That being said, a few brides I've met with have really been diggin' on the cake I made for my daughter's 1st Birthday party (you can see the full party post HERE). So...I agreed to give it another GO, and recreate it on a limited basis ;)
This is the thing...cakes STRESS ME OUT! It's one thing to try a fun cake for your family and friends...but for paying customers...well that's another story - LOL! Cake decorating is truly an ART FORM. I would love to have some formal training...but at this point based on my already limited time...I'll stick to online tutorials and tips from fellow bakers (like the one here from i am baker, which was the original inspiration for Harper's Birthday Cake).
Anyways...long story LONG...here are a few pictures of today's yummies...I wish I had taken a picture of the entire dessert table when I DID have my camera...but for some reason I always focus on getting close-ups of the deliciousness ;)
