What a Saturday! I had a pick up this morning by some wonderful and sassy women! They ohhhed and awwed over my display cakes and really gave me a good start for the day. I sat down with a bride, groom and the groom's mother for a 2 1/2 hour consultation. They had so many great ideas and it took a little while to design the perfect cake. Luckily the tasting part was easy, one taste and they were hooked (lemon cake/lemon curd filling and cream cheese icing for the brides)(milk chocolate cake with peanut butter icing filling and chocolate house buttercream). The wedding is not until January at the Chattanoogan, but I can't wait to make the cakes. The groom's cake is an upside down, 3 tier square! Yes, upside down!
Chad and I then made some cupcakes to take to a party later. I really like the whiskey cupcakes with whiskey cream cheese icing. The Guinness chocolate cupcakes are very moist, but you can't taste the stout in them at all. The whisky ganache and Baileys Irish Cream buttercream make up for it though. I hope the party goers like them!
