Sweet News – Congratulations to April and Matt

September 10, 2010

April and Matt had their wedding and reception at the Hilton Garden Inn.  Striking decor – centerpieces of hurricane candle holders circled with red roses, tulle draped on the ceiling over the dance floor and a lighted glass block pedestal for the cake gave the ballroom sparkle and pizazz.

Guests could choose from three flavors of cake:  Italian Creme, Lemon Pound with Raspberry Creme filling, and Chocolate Raspberry cake with Truffle filling.

For the groom’s cake, April and Matt chose the logo from North Carolina State University where they both work.  And since the rehearsal was a combo rehearsal/tailgating party before the “big game” on September 4, they asked that I put the UK logo on the cake as well.  As a U of L graduate and CARDS fan, all I can say is “ouch.” 

The groom’s cake was Tuxedo.  Tuxedo cake has two layers of chocolate cake and two layers of white cake, alternating.  Yummy and something for everyone.

Louisville Wedding Cake worked with April and Matt long-distance.  Actually we never even met!  We sent sketches via email along with lots of questions and answers and got everything done, including some changes a few days before the wedding.  Every year Louisville Wedding Cake will work with a half dozen or so brides who are getting married in their hometown  but live and work somewhere else.  It’s not a problem!  The interwebs make it easy to share pictures and info.  And if you’ve got a relative, like April’s mom here in Louisville, you can have a “surrogate cake tasting!”

PS, Yes, the groom got a copyright release from NCSU and UK for the groom’s cake.  Just in case you’re a regular reader of this blog.
