Wedding Cake for Veronique and Jared

So, I had the honor of creating a wedding cake for Veronique and Jared.  Jared just happens to be the little brother to our "go to" aka the couple that happens to be our best friend unit.  I couldn't have been more excited when Veronique asked if I could do their wedding cake.  If I could snap my fingers and make things magically happen, I would totally be in the event and wedding planning/cake baking and decorating business.  I love it all!  And not just my wedding stuff, I just love all the details and the personal touches that go into each couple's special event.  

Veronique and Jared wanted something simplistic and modern.  Their catering was going to serve dessert, so they didn't need a large cake.  So I decided on a two-tiered 8" and 6" wedding cake.  I have to say I was a little lost on what to create, until I saw the picture of her dress.  You will not be able to see it on the pictures that follow, but at her empire waist line and the hemming line where the mermaid tail flares, there is a layered ribbon technique used.  I decided to pull this detail from her dress and use it on their wedding cake.  Veronique had purple orchids dyed blue and I decided to use that blue in the ribbon detail.  Here are images of the cake

I am pretty happy with how it turned out!  We were asked to stay for dinner and I was really excited to see the bride and groom cut into and enjoy my creation.  Here are few pictures of the bride and groom

They were very nice to each other, no smearing cake onto each others faces

Veronique liked the cake so much that she went back immediately for another slice!  That made my night!  Here I am with the bride

And lastly, a picture of inside the cake.  Chocolate, vanilla, chocolate layers oh my!

Thank you Veronique and Jared for letting me do your wedding cake!  And thank you for letting Tyler and I be apart of your special day!  You two make the most darling couple and I know there are only good things to come for you two... one in July! 

Until next time, happy baking!


  1. The cake is GORGEOUS - love it!

  2. I think Veronique might have set the world record for fastest time from piece one to plating piece two. It was gone so fast! I wish we could have had a slice. Beautiful as usual.

  3. Beautiful cake!
