Diana and Clete's Wedding

This past weekend I was so fortunate to be a part of Diana and Clete's wedding. Instead of having a traditional wedding cake Diana opted for a dessert table with a variety of cakes and desserts atop beautiful cake pedastals. The only request...yellow cake with chocolate frosting for Clete, the groom.
The wedding dessert table included classic yellow cake with chocolate frosting, a coconut layer cake with cream cheese frosting and shredded coconut, berry layer cake, mini cupcakes, french macaroons, cheesecake lollipops, and bowls of assorted berries.
The berry layer cake was dramatic with four layers of golden sponge cake topped with billowy buttercream frosting and topped with red raspberries, golden raspberries, blueberries, blackberries and strawberries.
The french macaroons were stunning. Lemon, raspberry, and plain almond macaroons in vibrant colors of pink, teal, and yellow with delicious buttercream filling. These macaroons were a hit! Not bad for my venture into the world of macaroons. Macaroons are my new obsession. Definitely more to come on the subject of macaroons.

Mini yellow cupcakes with chocolate icing for Clete and chocolate minis with cream cheese frosting just to keep things interesting. The cupcakes were dressed in these adorable cupcake papers from Bella Cupcake Couture. Diana chose five different paper designs to dress the cupcakes.

Yum! Cheesecake lollipops covered in chocolate with a sprinkling of rainbow sparkling sugar.
And for the groom, Clete's favorite...a classic yellow cake with a rich shiny chocolate frosting sitting pretty on a tall cake pedestal.

Diana and Clete's wedding dessert table was by far one of the most beautiful things I have done. Thank you guys! Thanks for having faith in me and allowing me to be a part of such a beautiful day.
