The Bride, the Groom and the Wedding Cake Designer

Sounds like the beginning of a bad joke, huh? However, it was the BEST party yet. I promised pics of my sweet step-daughter's recent wedding and here they are! This is Mr. and Mrs. Anthony & Kaylee Whytock...Aren't they a beautiful couple?

Kaylee is usually very decisive and quick when it comes to making decisions...not so with her wedding cake! She gave me some very definite ideas about what she liked, but there were so many options that it was difficult to put it together. Her colors were pink, orange and black. So this is what we came up with...very unique and very Kaylee.

Tony, on the other hand, knew what he wanted for a groom's cake from day 1. He said that in addition to a Jack-O-Lantern, the cake must have "pumpkin guts" and carving tools. I think it came out pretty nice. So if anyone ever needs to recreate pumpkin guts, please feel free to email me...

This last pic is of our family...lucky me!

NEWSFLASH: "Cake Builds Amazing Muscles"

Okay, okay... This photo has nothing to do with cake. This gentleman is the current Mr. Olympia, Jay Cutler! My husband and I recently had the opportunity to attend the local NPC Open Figure championships. Jay Cutler was the celebrity "poser" for the event and I couldn't pass up the opportunity to get a closer look at his biceps! I can guarantee you that he didn't get those arms from eating cake. He was a very nice man, but I don't think there is anything I could say to talk him into one of my cakes. However, we did have one thing in common--a passion for what we do. He lifts weights and I make cake:

These are two of the latest cakes from the last week. The first one is from one of the most unique and beautiful weddings ever! The bride was breathtaking and the whole wedding was very rustic and cool. It was a pumpkin chocolate chip cake with caramel buttercream...and of course, adorned with caramel dipped apples.

The second was for a very gorgeous wedding at The Canterbury Place in Bountiful, Utah. The wedding colors were cream, black and gold--very elegant!

On my next blog, I hope to have some photos of my sweet step-daughter's wedding. I'll keep you posted!
