Lavender Love

When Lindsey and Peter came to us wanting their wedding to overflow with summer lavender, I knew I liked them, and I knew that their wedding would be a lovely affair.  Together we created a trio of cakes finished with our signature buttercream and lavender garlands.  Half of the macarons were filled with lavender buttercream made with buds from my own garden.  The other half were grey dusted in gold, filled with bergamot ganache–  truly delicious.

I would be remiss if I didn’t mention how stunning these photos are by Nicole Haley.  If you’re not familiar with her work, it’s worth a click over to her blog.

Detroit Love

We are so happy to share with you Brooke and Sammy’s red carpet wedding at the historic Fox Theater.  Every detail, including the towering cake, mirror the opulence of the lobby.  The dessert tables were a collaborative effort with the Bride’s Detroit bakery, Love and Buttercream.  We hope you’ll agree that the macaron towers are a wonderfully decadent flourish.

The groom’s cake is an edible homage to Detroit today.   Look closely to see all of Brooke and Sammy’s favorite haunts!  Does it include any of your favorites (or are you more of an American Coney fan)?

Dreamy Farm Wedding

We love the cafe lights, fun foral, and big smiles at Jess and Ben’s outdoor Misty Farm wedding.  As always Alison and her crew at Viva La Diva knocked it out of the park, and Jess + Nate captured it beautifully.  Featured here is our mini-cupcake dessert table, macarons, and a buttercream cutting cake.

Floral Galore

The proportions of this horizontal striped buttercream cake were just perfection, the 360° floral placement is breathtaking, and these photos by Lauren Gabrielle are beautiful.  Macarons were a sweet final touch on each place setting.  We hope you enjoy these photos of Lori and Josh’s Lovett Hall reception as much as we do.

A Fresh Look at Buttercream and Barns

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.

For more photos of Amanda and Dorran, check out Nicole Haley’s blog.

A Casual Affair: Karissa & Cliff

It was so fun to receive these beautiful photos by Julie Pepin of Karissa and Cliff’s outdoor Michigan wedding (especially of the cake cutting)!  We were able to do what we do best, and I think you’ll agree that the overall effect is stunning.  Everything is edible– gum paste flowers, fondant bark & royal icing moss.
