Delivering these buttercream cakes to Cottonwood Barn was so wonderful that we wanted to stay! We’ve brought cakes to a lot of barn weddings, and this one is exceptional. It has all of the idyllic charm of rural Dexter, but with the amenities you want for your grandparents. It was one of the first sunny days after the longest winter EVER. Outside, friends and family were milling about, laughing and having a good time. It smelled of fresh beer. While we were placing fresh flowers, there were familiar faces all around: Eat Catering pouring champagne, Luna Soiree putting finishing touches on the tables, and Nicole Haley taking photos.

This is the stuff of a cake artist’s dream: Monica & Kelsey wanted a unique and colorful cake that incorporated details from the bride’s gown. The gown, by the way, was Kenneth Pool’s gorgeous Estelle.
The final design was stunning, with details mimicking the scalloped crystal details of the dress, aubergine ombre pailletes, and a fascinator topper. Dare I say it upstaged the plane hanging the background at the Henry Ford Museum?
Perhaps even more personal were the groom’s cupcakes. Monica wanted to honor Kelsey’s love for the Beatles and so we created a custom display in order to highlight the Beatles theme and include a special message.
The display was wheeled out after the cake cutting, and was a special surprise for Kelsey. His reaction says it all.
Monica & Kelsey, we are so happy that you have all you need!
A special thank you to Nicole Haley Photography for sharing her photos.
