What a Wild Weekend!

Wow! What a crazy weekend! On Friday I got a call from my good friends over at The Chattanoogan hotel. It seems an Atlanta bride brought her wedding and groom's cake with her to the Chattanoogan. Her cake didn't really survive the trip and with her cake decorator 2 hours away in Atlanta, she was freaking out just a bit. I grabbed my emergency repair kit and scooted up to assess the situation. Things weren't great, but 2 hours later the cake looked good as new and the bride was tickled pink. That's why all quotes at Cup a Dee Cakes include setup and delivery within a 30 mile radius. Just ask THAT bride, that's one thing you don't want to worry about on your big day.

Saturday started out with a customer standing me up for a large birthday cake (grumble grumble). The rest of the day faired much better. We made our first delivery to Gordon Lee Mansion in Chickamauga, GA. What a nice facility! We had a lot of fun with the bridal couple; they wanted an Alice in Wonderland themed cupcake tree. The best part was they left the design of the topper cake completely up to us! We decided to go with a Mad Hatter's hat cake to top off this whimsical centerpiece. We even made a really cool pocketwatch using gumpaste and a little edible image trickery!! Normally, we don't get that immediate reaction from the bride, but this time the fates put the brides path to the alter right by the cake just as we were finishing setup. She was so excited and happy - it was a very VERY nice end to our crazy little week.


  1. Thanks for your sweet comment, Nicolescu. I took a look at your Pets blog and those are some of the cutest kittens and puppies I have seen! Multumesc!

  2. The Cake was WONDERFUL!!! (This is the Bride of the "Alice" wedding) I'm glad our paths crossed so that I could show you how absolutely BLOWN AWAY I was with the end result. It was more than I ever could have expected. Truly a top of the list highlight to that special day. We have already recommened you to anyone and everyone who will listen!!

  3. Hi Carrie! I'm so glad you enjoyed your cake! I am always so thrilled when I get a couple that's not afraid to step outside the box a little. We had a really fun time making it. My husband works at the hospital with one of your guests, Jimmy Lunsford, and he commented on how pretty and tasty the cake was! Thanks again for your sweet comments and I wish you and Chris every happiness!
