Fall or Summer, Orange is a fabulous color to use in your wedding. Fruit has been a popular trend this year and I love the how Alesha wanted oranges displayed in her cake stand. For those of you who may be "anti-fondant".. here's a buttercream cake for you to take a look at. Buttercream has a softer texture than fondant, and you can still make it nice and smooth. Some people think it tastes better than fondant.. but it's all personal opinion.
I don't do a lot of buttercream cakes these days.. it's fun to get back to them every once in a while.

Candy Apple Green is THE Color! It's been a popular one this year. I was lucky enough to do Bethanie's cake for her. She is the cutest girl! They wanted something fun and simple. They were using green apples (from their own apple trees.... cool!) as part of their decor, so wanted to implement the color into the cake. I think the green and purple were a great color combination. As for the flowers... they were done by the best RETIRED florist around... my own mom! It was fun to work on a wedding with her again.

So if you are brave enough to want a black wedding cake... you just might see that you can pull off an elegant, amazingly different cake that will be a show stopper. I was impressed with Heidi and Tobin when they came to our consultation saying they wanted and all black wedding cake (and even more impressed that mom was on page with their idea's!) Not too many people are brave enough to go with such a bold color. This cake turned out awesome! The black looked beautiful and then we put the bright pink flowers on it and the cake came alive. It's always a HUGE compliment to me when guests start snapping pictures of my cakes. This was one of those cakes. As soon as I moved out of the way, there were about 5 people snapping pictures at the finished product. I don't know if they'd ever seen a black wedding cake before.
Thanks Heidi and Tobin for stepping out of the box and going bold! I LOVED working on your cake and I hope you loved it to!

This cake reminded me of something I would see in an art gallery. With the bright white canvas (fondant in my case) and the bright red flower covering all three tiers, this cake "popped" in artistic design. This reception was at the totally cool Scholorship Room at the University of Utah. I love this venue because the whole room is full of windows so you've got an amazing view of good ol SLC and our beautiful mountains as it's back drop.
