Sweet News – Congratulations to Nicki and Chris

October 14, 2010

Congratulations to Nicki and Chris on their recent wedding.  It was our first time setting up at Gingerwoods.  What a hidden gem!  Old hardwood floors worn to a patina housed in an old church in a tranquil country setting surrounded by horses playing in the fields.  What could possibly be more charming?

Nicki and Chris chose Watermelon Pink and Canary Yellow for their colors, and weren’t afraid to use them!  (Bright colors always make me smile.)  And I heard from a guest at the wedding that all of the cake was gobbled up!  And by gobbled up I mean “enjoyed by all.”

Chris’ Groom’s Cake, a replica of the a UK Basketball court was served at the Rehearsal Dinner.  It’s completely appropriate to serve the Groom’s Cake then, in part because the Groom’s family is the host of the Dinner.  It’s their time to plan a party!  Dinner guests enjoyed Tuxedo Cake with Vanilla Buttercreme and Crushed Oreo filing.  mmmmmmm

Reception guests chose from Princess Cake with Bavarian Creme Filling, Strawberry Cake with Strawberry Creme and Chocolate Buttercreme Filling, Lemon Cake with Strawberry Creme Filling and Banana Cake with Bavarian Creme Filling.

Thanks for choosing Louisville Wedding Cake to create your one-of-a-kind cakes!


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.
