Wedding Wednesday: cakes and pies

Wednesday, February 18, 2015

The first cake I ever made was when I was 10 years old for my mom's birthday. It tasted awful, but my baking skills have improved a great deal over the years!I love baking, so naturally the cakes were an important part of the reception to me.

The last thing I wanted was some huge wedding cake that had been baked days before the wedding and then frozen, which is pretty typical of wedding cakes. They look gorgeous, but the flavor isn't so great. I didn't care so much what the cakes looked like, but I wanted them to taste great.

Originally I wanted to bake the cakes myself, but that seemed like a major undertaking so I hired a high-schooler to make them. I gave her my recipes, and she baked them in a certified kitchen. We had 5 different cake flavors: salted caramel, chocolate with peanut butter frosting, white cake with lemon frosting, pumpkin cake, and red velvet.

Most of the cake toppers were made by a friend of mine and this is my favorite one! My friend made the bride and groom and Sam made the little Finn.

I made this banner and the signage.

I made this cake topper. Sam is from Missouri and I'm from Alabama.

I made this cake topper for my sister's wedding and reused it for my wedding.

A close-up of the signage. I used the same font that was on the invitations.

We also had 4 different pies, in addition to the wedding cakes. We had apple cranberry, pumpkin, paleo pecan, and rhubarb. The pies were made at Mason Dixon bakery, a gluten free bakery.

  1. the birthday cake that you made for me is the only one I even remember. love!

  2. You baked a cake at 10! Honey, I don't care how it tasted. That's something you should be proud of. Some 10-year old can't even fry an egg at that age. :)

    These are so pretty. :)
