Roadtrip!

Do you know our cakes can travel?  While we ourselves will deliver a cake up to four hours away, it doesn’t mean you can’t travel with it for longer (note—3-tiers not included!).  Fondant covered cakes are best for travel but the most important elements are keeping the cake on a flat surface, and driving with your air conditioning on pretty high (at least in the summer time).  Just last month our cakes made a trip all the way down to D.C. for a wedding.  Since the couple couldn’t do a large cake and still have it guaranteed to arrive safely, they opted for a table of single-tier cakes and one two-tier cake for their ceremonial cut.

Another wedding of gray and yellow tones (a popular color combo), these cakes were designed to shine in their simplicity.  A clean and simple fondant band wrapped around the two-tier and two of the single cakes in alternating colors while the other two cakes were decorated with graduated piped dots in an ombre of grays and yellows.  The cakes wrapped with fondant bands were then decorated with hand made sugar ranunculus flowers, weedy “daisies,” and little green berries.  Ranunculus flowers, also very popular right now, are known for having tons and tons of petals so even the smallest of the flowers can take around 30 minutes to make while the largest flower probably took around 2 hours!

Another fun aspect of getting a table of cakes is the variety of flavors.  The couple chose some of our classics such as chocolate cake with chocolate buttercream, buttermilk cake with chocolate buttercream, and almond pound cake with cherry buttercream.  They then created their own cute signs to designate these flavors.
