Corrie was such a pleasure to meet with! She was honest about what she liked and disliked in both taste and design during her consultation in October. She was planning her wedding from Birmingham, Alabama so she needed to have meetings and consultations when she was in town and planned everything accordingly.
She and David were having a traditional church wedding and reception at the Crievewood Baptist Church in Nashville, a very large church with a beautiful reception area. They were expecting around 250 people so we decided to combine servings of cake and groom’s cupcakes to make up the total number of servings they needed.
Corrie loves bright pink and the cake was to reflect that in gumpaste hydrangea accents and fondant monogram. Her tables featured the bright pink flowers as well that really made the reception area pop with color.
Corrie loved my Sour Cream Almond Cake and chose to keep the entire cake in that flavor, covered with Almond Buttercream-yum! The groom’s cupcakes were chocolate and strawberry, with the same flavors of buttercream on each, accented with the “Z” fondant monograms.
I have to mention that I wish I had taken a photo of David’s sister’s cheesecakes that she made for the reception. They were mini cheesecakes that a pastry chef would have a hard time holding a candle to. You have no idea how bad I wanted to dig in while setting up! Absolutely spectacular! One of these days I’m going to try to duplicate her handy work and yes, I will post to my blog when I do!
Corrie and David, couples like you make my job easy! Best wishes to you always!
